“a gem in Hampton Bays”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

Stayed there for one night during memorial day weekend. The Inn has been meticulously renovated - super comfy bed, brand-new flat screen TV and top-notch appliances in the kitchenette, with many lovely details. We loved the fresh fruit waiting for us at the room upon arrival and the pastries served at breakfast. The inn is right by the canal with nice views of the bay and is a very short ride to the nearby beach. It is a wonderful base to explore the Hamptons, yet feels quaint and relaxed. We had a great time and can't wait to be back!

Recently my hubby and I had to attend a family function in South Hampton.
After reading the excellent reviews on a place we never heard of before,
The Drake Inn, we decided to book the weekend there.

We are very glad we did and agree with everything we had read before booking.
Super clean, well designed and very comfortable, it seemed that every need and more difficult to anticipate every want was taken care of. The décor was modern but welcoming, and the kitchenette was perfect for making coffee and having snacks handy. The coffee was made even better by the pastries that were delivered to our room Saturday and Sunday mornings. We even had a visit from the most beautiful Swan that swan right up to the dock near our room.

And...to top it all...the price, when comparing it to any establishment in the area of such a caliber, was
a gift.

In short we had a splendid weekend at The Drake Inn, our new home in the Hamptons.

The Drake Inn has a great location in the Hamptons. It is easily accessible from New York City and also South Hampton, East Hampton and Sag Harbor facilities. The rooms are recently beautifully renovated. Rooms have a bright clean "look". The Inn is located on an inlet from the bay with boat slips for docking. As we were standing on the dock one morning the most beautiful swan I have ever seen swam up to us.

The management of the Inn are friendly, welcoming people who were very helpful locating local sites to visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the inlet

My wife and I spent a beautiful fall weekend at The Drake Inn in Hampton Bays. The rooms were cozy, comfortable and clean. The staff catered to us as if we were at the Four Seasons.
On the waterfront deck we tried our hand at fishing (No luck though!) But it was a relaxing afternoon watching the boats head out to sea. And it was BYOB. The ocean beach was a 5-minute car ride away. Huge Atlantic Ocean waves kicked up by a storm far out to sea. We walked up and down the beach enjoying the fleeting warmth of the sun. Good shell pickings too.
It was a totally relaxing vacation: cable TV in the rooms; a kitchenette fully equipped with all the utensils you needed; and those "Cloud 9" beds. A total chill-out.
We can't wait to come back next Spring. I would truly recommend The Drake Inn to my friends and family.

We booked The Drake Inn for a friend's wedding. The staff from the booking phone call right down to the iron board delivery were outstanding. They cared about your visit and provided every detail - even unexpected home made treats on Sunday morning. Right on the mariner, quaint rooms with kitchen amenities, comfortable bed and sitting area with flat screen TV. Even an adorable front porch, tho it overlooks parking area, the flowers and plantings provided enough scenery to take in. Only negative was the bathroom was tiny, clean as a whistle, but really tiny. It didn't matter for us, but a quarterback might feel the pressure! Would go back in a heartbeat!!

I wish I could have stayed longer. The property is gorgeous and clean. The staff is friendly and accommodated me. They even had fried dough for breakfast. Delicious! I wasn't able to take advantage of the entire facility because I was there on business but I will definitely be back.
