Just got back from a stay at the Harborside and have to say I was a little dissapointed. The location is somewhat odd, the establishment is located on West Lake Drive which can be a somewhat busy street and is across the street from two marinas - (each of which have restaurants!).
Despite the odd location after coming out from the city it was nice to see the calmness of Montauk. We were assigned to Room 21 which appears to have been one of the rooms that has not been fully renovated (as opposed to the others). The room was huge though but it featured an old air conditioner that was placed in the bathroom area so air that came out wouldnt flow into the room. The room featured a small room with a sink and AC and then another room with a toilet and a small tub. The area around the bathroom was very outdated...old wood.
There were two beds, two sitting chairs, a desk and a small TV which had a ton of chanels. Outside there is a parking lot, a fenced in outdoor pool which was very clean and tennis courts in the back.
What didnt go over so well with me was that a day after we arrived a group of individuals checked in and were assigned to the room next to us (room 23) which appears to have been renovated. Room 23 had a new air conditioner that was placed in the room and not in the bathroom, had the refrigerator and TV on a new piece of furniture and had new windows that opened up. These group of individuals also felt the need to walk outside the rooms at all hours of the night while partaking in drinking. Why my family and I were not given this room is beyond me. When I pay close to $200 for a room that I booked directly through the hotel and not through Priceline or Expedia I expect a decent room considering I can get a hotel room for a little more then $200 in Manhattan.
