First Off, this trip was in Dec 2012 and the Royal Atlantic is PERFECT for my needs. A comfortable "Suite" for $80. This is a Great room at this price. The problem with that is that there isn't much to do in Montauk in Winter time. That's why I love Montauk in Winter. Had a nice 50*F day and did lots of hiking around The Point.
Back to the "Resort". this is NOT a resort for those of you used to such things. It's no more than Motel Quality with an incredible location. I could never imagine in my wildest dreams shelling out close to $2,500 for a week at this place. If you're going to do that, go with another family/couple and split one of he 3 bedroom condos at $5,000 for the week. Your out of pocket will be approx the same, but your experience will be much better.
See my previous review from Feb 2012 here: http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g48194-d290937-r124257142-Royal_Atlantic_Beach_Resort_Hotel-Montauk_Long_Island_New_York.html
The property is worse off now due to sustaining signifcant ocean flooding from Hurricane Sandy. The salt water decays this, and all other Montauk properties, faster than many other places. yes there is rust in spots, wood rotting, towels SUCK big time. I will definitely bring my own batch towels next time, as theirs suck big time! Paper bath mat is annoying once your feet get wet as it sticks to you. This place is a good base of operations and 4-6 younger people could probably pack themselves in here and be modestly content. I am 45 with 2 kids and for our family it would be tight, as I've become a bit of a Hotel diva in my latter years. With that said, I will almost always stay here during my winter trips out to Montauk, because at $80 ($92 with tax) it has value. You will be stunned and pissed at what you see if you pay High Season rates for this place (or any other High season rates in Montauk for that matter)...but if the demand is there, people will pay.
Call ahead and ask about storm damage. They were working hard when I was there, so should be ready by summer, but I'd be concerned about their mold removal efforts. I didn't see alot of actual gutting and removal of flooded areas, but then again, I didn't look very close either and it has been almost 2 months since the storm.
