I have been here a couple of other times and each time it gets better and better. In the past I thought that the decor was tacky but it has been improved and is really quite lovely. The location is still wonderful with their own beach. Susan, the manager, is very helpful with directions, things to see and places to... More

A very nice and relaxing place to stay close to all of the great family activities on the North Fork, right on the water with a little beach and great view. Staff was great as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The family who owns it was very nice as well.

Jamesport suites is a great place to stay to enjoy everything that the North (and South) fork has to offer. The vineyards are close by and Riverhead is a short drive, with Southampton just a little further. The hotel is quite basic, but the rooms are large and the aircon works brilliantly - but you come here for the peace... More

I had been coming to the motel for over 30 years as it is (was) a great off season place for a getaway. Last year, the ownership changes and I will never go back for the following reasons: we were charged for a "newly renovated room" and were in one that was not yet renovated, which really wasn't a problem...

Gorgeous friendly, relaxing. Stay for a wedding or just a nice fall getaway. Owners and manager Sue are great. Good family place. Even shared some meals with other guests, cooking facilities and grills. Close to vineyards, but just laying on the beach is enough!

My husband and I just spent a fabulous weekend in the Northfork and we are so happy we decided to stay at the Jamesport Bay Suites. The grounds were beautiful, right on the bay with a clean sandy beach. Sue (the manager of the property) was extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious and clean and we took advantage...

What a great location!!! The motel, and it is a motel, is right on the bay. The view is wonderful. The rooms are fine. The decor is a little tacky though it is clean and comfortable. There is a full kitchen which we did not use but would work for a family that wants to cook in. There are three... More

I called around and finally got a room for one night at the Jamesport Bay Suites. I've never stayed in Jamesport, but I have to... More
