“BEST VALUE IN MONTAUK!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

My wife and I spent 3 days in Montauk and Merle, the owner of Harborside , was absolutely a pleasure to work with. The pool was very clean and the rooms were as well.
Though I wish the room had an iron & ironing board it was of little consequence
as we slept great and Merle recommended the best place to have Lobster which it was!
If we go back to Montauk this will be the place we stay!

Room Tip: ask for upstairs and you get more of a breeze from the harbor.

We have been coming to Montauk for quite some time now, but since having a family we wanted to room just a little bit away for the hustle and bustle of town. As a result, we have been staying at the Harborside exclusively since my daughter was 4 years old. She is now turning 10 and my son, 5 and we look forward to returning each and every year. It is our true family vacation for quality time and relaxation. Merle is the absolute best and the place is spotless. My kids love the pool and walking to the Harbor every morning for breakfast by the docks. It's our home away for home for one week out of every year and we are so excited to be coming back in just a few days!!!

I stayed here with my Sister and before even leaving our house we had issues. We called to inquire about the reservation receipt and the female manager/owner was extremely rude to us because we were in our early 20s but not yet 25. Our mother made the reservation as a gift for us and the manganer said that "she would allow us to stay even though we were younger then 25 and that they only allow adults" I responded that 18 years and older is an adult in ny.When we got there she was extremely suspicious of us. We got our room but not before an interrogation and when we opened the door the whole room smelled of smoke and these are suppose to be non smoking rooms. We told her again she was suspicious of us which I found rude. The room itself was ok a bit outdated with stained sheets and moldy smell but the pool was nice and the best part of the place. I enjoyed montauk but my sister and I decided that if we go again we would stay somewhere else.

I just wanted to add my 2 cents to the chorus of praise for this hotel. It is cleaner and nicer than places going for twice the price (Merle, please don't read this and raise the rates! lol). We had a room which was recently updated, it was spotless as were the grounds overall. The pool was crysal clear without that chlorene-y smell. I don't know how they do it. As for the individual who stated the manager was rude and belligerent and canceled their room, I find that very hard to believe. Merle, the manager was accomdating, responsive and friendly. When I lost my phone, she seemed genuinely concerned. When I needed a ride into town, one of her neices offered to drive me. Yes there are a lot of rules and signs but that just means they run a tight ship and I welcome that. There is definitely pride in the ownership of this motel and you can feel it. I have already recommended this place to friends and family and hope to return myself before the summer ends!

We got a warm welcome with friendly smile and the room was perfectly clean and cozy space.
Kitchen and a refrigerator were very convenient for staying.
Location was also very nice. Quiet neighborhood and there are also nice restaurant and shopping place at the water side. Can't forget to tell there is beautiful beach,too! These are all walking distance. Beautiful sunset, nice ice cream shop.. Hotel staff gave us lots of useful information,so we could have a really great time even though this was a our first trip to Montauk.
We are looking forward to visiting here again!
This hotel has a wonderful hospitality!

このホテルはとても清潔で素晴らしい空間を提供してくれます。シンプルで、静かな空間。そしてキッチンがついていて、必要なものがちゃんと揃っています。徒歩圏内でビーチ、ショッピングモールにも行けます。スタッフもフレンドリーで色んなことを教えてくれます。私たちはモントークは初めてでしたが、とても素晴らしい時を過ごす事ができました。本当におすすめのホテルです。

This was our first trip to Montauk and we weren't sure where to stay. We called several hotels and the Harborside staff seemed friendly and experienced from the beginning.

Our decision to pick Harborside turned out great. The location on the west side of Montauk was perfect - walking distance to many water-side restaurants, a shopping village, and a beautiful beach with amazing sunset views that you just can't get on the east side of the island.

The room was everything it should be: clean, comfortable, quiet with a kitchenette. We didn't use the pool or courts but knowing they were right there was fun and we might use them next time.

The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and made us feel right at home.

We couldn't ask for anything more and are looking forward to our next visit!:-)

The rooms were super clean, the owner is very friendly (she went out of her way to help us), and the price was 1/4 what we would have paid elsewhere. A great little place. I am definitely recommending Harborside to my friends who come out to Montauk and the Hamptons.
