“footsteps to the beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2006

The most important thing to know about this motel is that it is only a half block from the beach, right off the main street, has a balcony, small kitchenette, pool & tennis for summer and is a nice price. However, It is no frills indeed. The owner should definitely consider investing in some new bed linens (mattress, sheets, blankets, pillows), carpetting, and bathroom fixtures. That said the room was still pretty clean and comfortable.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2005

My friends and I stayed at Daunt's Albatross July 15th-17th 2005. We were pleased with our choice. You see, we did our homework months earlier in March. We discovered not everything is as it is percieved in brochures and on the net. We actually took a day and visited every hotel we could in March. Very smart decision on our part. Not only do they look much different in person, they smell much different in person. Most, and I mean most of the hotels on or near the ocean smelled musty and or like mildew. I can honestly tell you that the Albatross did not. We had an efficiency which included a kitchen table and 3 chairs. It had a mini-fridge, 2 burner cook-top, sink. Drawers and cabinets contained plates, cups, bowls etc... Our main complaint were the sheets. They needed to be thrown in the garbage. Thin and balled sheets are not pleasant. We were a block away from the ocean and a block away from town. Perfect location.
Although I rated this hotel above average, Please remember this is Montauk we are talking about. And for Montauk this hotel is tops.
