We booked two nights at the Eastener having read previous reviews. Fran was very friendly and helpful with recommendations for beaches, etc. The room was clean and in reasonable condition given the age of the motel. However, our room had a strong cigarette smell despite the no smoking policy. We left all windows open and spent whatever time we could... More

Needed last minute reservation and the owner Fran was pleased to accommodate. Very kind of her and I really appreciated the attentiveness. Reasonable nightly rate, convenient location, clean comfortable room with kitchenette.

I stayed at the Easterner over the Mother's Day Weekend, and had a very tranquil and peaceful stay. I had some trouble with my hire car and Fran, the owner, could not have been more helpful and sympathetic, it could have ruined my trip, but actually, just staying in the grounds and watching the pretty birds (lots of red cardinals)...

Large fridge and full set of stoves. Chairs outside and close to the highway. Friendly hostess and family run. She let us check out a bit later too. Stayed here with my family on way back to Manhattan from Montauk after the 155 mile bike ride there. Great place. No complaints.

This place brings me back to my old summer vacation days of the '60s...and not much has been updated since. For what it is, one of the least expensive places to stay in the Hamptons, it fits the bill. Firm but comfortable bed with clean sheets, great little kitchenette with stove & modest size refrigerator. It's a clean enough place... More

Very friendly owner who gave great advice on restaurants, shopping and travel tips. Rooms very well equipped and clean. Some of the equipment is a bit tired and noisy (fridge) but very functional. Great location and value.

Southampton is very pricey, so tis is a great place to stay if you don't care about the frills and want to splurge on fine restaurants. The owner, Fran, truly care about your comfort, and is a rich resource for local attractions. She has a beach pass that is available for your use. We would definitely stay there again.

This was indeed one of the most special little hideaways we have experienced. It is tucked away on 2.5 acres of huge, lovely trees, providing a rural ambience, yet offering a most convenient location to activities. Fran, the vivacious owner, lives on the property and is always there to assist in any way possible. She has tons of information about... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this charming motel in the woods, The Easterner. My business partner and I have stayed there when doing business in the Hamptons several times over the last two summers. It is always a wonderful experience, located in a quaint camp-ground like atmosphere tucked back in the woods with nicely converted stand alone duplex-style bulidings... More

The motel rooms were very nice and clean and equipped with everything needed (kitchenette, microwave, eating table). Fran the owner was very helpful and even drove us to town, to the beach and to the station as we had no car and it was too far to walk to these places (I would definitely recommend to come by car).
