Say if you are travelling with your family, you have your kids, and maybe your parents with you and you are planning to spend a week in Montauk : this place is perfect for you. If you are a couple who is not planning to renting a car and wants to spend a weekend in montauk - not so much. We were in the latter category.
- The water view : It's right on a very calm patch of the sound. You can see the sunset colors on the water from your balcony. Perfect.
- Good value and the staff when they are around are friendly.
- Good clean rooms.
- A full kitchen.
- Closeby to grossman's dock and the restaurants there.
Not so great things
- The beach by the hotel is a very small piece of rocky land full of floatsam by the sound. The "real" beaches are a few miles away. The best beach we saw was the ditch beach.
- There is no staff on the property at nights. Usually this wouldn't matter but we lost power in the middle of the night during a heat wave. I called the emergency number (the manager's cell phone) three or four times and finally got an answer from one of them forty minutes later. Of course once I talked to him he was at the hotel within 10 minutes and fixed the circuit breaker.
- No shampoos in the bathroom
- They don't give you beach towels (this is the first ocean side hotel which I have stayed in that doesn;t)
- About three to four miles drive from the town. So you better have a car as the cabs take their sweet time to show up,
All in all, it's a pretty good value for money if you are going to cook for your self and spend a week or so and plan to drive around. It's NOT a resort. We may be back though, if we plan to stay longer but for a weekend we will look for something close to the town,
