“Great location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

We have stayed here a few times over the years. It is right on the ocean and has a wonderful cafe for breakfast and lunch. The pool area is nice and maintained. It is a good family place. The only thing that needs improvement are the rooms they are old and the beds are like sleeping on a board. The rates are high during the summer like all the places in Montauk. They should remodel the rooms with new beds. I was disappointed with our stay this time.

Room Tip: We have stayedin gardenview, oceanview and parking lot view all the rooms are out dated with hard be...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2011

We just got back from our 6th year of going to AT. We always enjoyed the family atmoshere, kids running, playing ball, families hanging out. They now built obnoxious "tables" in the courtyard so children can no longer run. The children were no longer able to play any type of ball in the courtyard. We got reprimanded for singing "Happy Birthday" to my son at 9:30pm. The managers stalked us every moment we were outside our rooms. I understand not to be too loud at certain times, but we certainly were not that loud. We will no longer be going there for our family vacations. For the price, they should update the rooms, fix all the cracks in the bathrooms and a new coat of paint. We will be finding a new place to vacation where we get more for our money. They just lost at least 3 loyal families. NO LONGER FOR FAMILIES WHO WANT TO HAVE FUN!

My wife loves this place for it's close proximity to town. The Motel is kept meticulously clean and the pool is heated and maintained daily. They have a cafe for small orders or breakfast and the usual burger. Not cheap but a brisk service was observed on the rainy weekend we went. My heartburn is with a simple thing that most I dont even think about is the horrible modified balcony railings . The rails have been modified for what appears to meet a safety code. When seated on a balcony facing the beautiful ocean and pool all you see is railings.
When you go down to the pool deck the rails block the view of the ocean. The rails have been there for years. so maybe I am the only one that sees this as an issue. The rooms all have two burner efficiency stoves with a small refrigerator. I suggest that each room have a microwave and toaster. With economic conditions the way they are it is really just a stretch to pay for the room go out and have a dinner with 4 or 5 people and the cost gets prohibitive. The court yard layout draws families many utilize the courtyard to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. The addition of 3 Weber grills to the barbecue pit would be welcomed. A lot to ask I guess, and if you dont go someone else will my wife says. Cant say a bad thing about the help and the condition of the grounds. Yes it is old and maybe the balcony's would not pass inspection now but I dont see them falling.

Stayed at this motel for many years. Decided to go back for a couple of days with my husband. The motel was empty. Our first night was okay., the beds are very uncomfortable. The second night, they put a family with screaming kids next to us, although, almost all the rooms were empty. The rooms are old. I wouldn't trust the balcony's. Sheets and towels are hard as sand paper, expecially if you get a little too much sun The staff years ago were so friendly and nice. The staff now is unfriendly. As for the grounds, they are beautiful and the pool is clean. A little updating would be nice and the use of common sense from the front desk. Maybe a little fabric softener? Also there is no one there after 8 pm if you have a problem. You have to go into the game room to use the internet.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms are dumps! Stay downstairs.

I stayed at this motel with my family in October 2010 and was bitten by bed bugs. Thankfully none came home with me. We stayed only one night. The motel has been unresponsive to my requests for a refund.

I love the review below that said Montauk and this hotel are trashy. If you want the Hamptons, head up the road. This is where regular people have summer fun with their families and partners. Think bar-b-que, s'mores, and beer, swimming, bodysurfing, and sunning - all while kids run around madly, parents wander around with bottles of beer and sausage on a roll, and the tanned and attractive wander around oiled, in shades, ready for a day of flirting. The beach is beautiful and the atmosphere is festive. If you're looking for a quiet couples vacation, only come here off season. In fall and spring it can be chilly but it's quiet and serene. In the high season it's a party.

The rooms are a little tired but always clean. I think the prices are really getting out of control but of course I already booked in advance for summer 2011 so they haven't gone too high ... yet.
