“Practically perfect in every way, met all our needs.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2010

Owner, Fran, invaluable. She gets an A+. Room very clean. Kitchen in room great asset. Dishes/utensils all nice and clean too. Nice quiet location outside village, pleasant drive to ocean or bay beach no prob. This is an older property, not luxury, still a comfortable space for two. Pool nice option which is not available at some higher priced places in area (neither is a kitchen). Def get more for way less $$ here. Shower stall size only negative-could be a problem for anyone needing more room.

On the spur of the moment, we decided to stay out east, take in the Sun rise and do some shopping on a beautiful weekend in July. Seeing the reviews for the Easterner. we made a call and arrived at 9:30 after getting directions from the owner "Fran". The room was cute and clean, kind of like our own little bungalow. We ate at a nice place down the block after arrival, headed out to lighthouse for the Sun rise, had breakfast in Montauk before returning back to the Easterner to freshen up and leave for shopping in the remarkable town of South Hampton. Being able to find a reasonably priced place that was clean with friendly owner, helped make the weekend a success. Thanks for the memories.

We were so pleased with our 3 night stay at the Easterner Motel in early June. Fran was extremely helpful and friendly providing us with advice and recommendations for things to do and places to go in the area. Our room was lovely - nicely decorated with brightly coloured bedding and everything we could need - stove, microwave, full-size fridge freezer. Our room - no 8 - was at the end surrounded by trees and greenery. It felt like staying in a cottage in the woods. Each morning we were woken with birdsong and watched the rabbits and squirrels playing in the sunshine on the lawn. The rate was extremely reasonable for the Hamptons and we would highly recommend the whole experience.

Stayed here for one night and were pleased with all aspects of the Easterner. It's closer to Hampton Bays than Southampon but this also puts you closer to moderately-priced seaside dining. Fran, the owner, is a pleasure to deal with and while the rooms may be a bit dated they are squeaky-clean with comfy beds, stove, refrigerator,etc. A good place to relax as well as an excellent base for exploring the Hamptons, Montauk Point and environs.

The Easterner Motel fit just what my husband and I were looking for in a place to stay on Long Island. The "cottage" was roomy and clean. One of the other good things about the place was the communication between the owner/manager of the place. We spoke with the owner on several occasions before our stay. We knew that the motel was going to be well kept up and clean before we arrived. The owner was kind and friendly, as if we were family that was staying there. We chose this place blindly off the internet and were very pleased at the personal care that was given to us before we even saw the motel. The Easterner is a place that should not be passed by.

we stayed at the easterner following other reviews left as we had never stayed at the hamptons before and didn't know the area at all - Fran the propietor was fantastic and couldn't do enough for us, even offering to give us a lift into town one night!
the rooms were clean with all the amenities of a hotel, with kitchen area including all equpiment, toiletries for the bathroom, use of barbeque facilities,and daily cleaning - we couldn't fault anything. The pool was an added bonus and it was so laid back and quiet, but no too far from the main town and lots of restaurants - again Fran was invaluable for knowledge of the area and good places to eat,
we would definitely go back there - thanks Fran for a great time!!!

This location is close to the village, beaches, the bays, the marina, deli and supermarket. The cottage has all you need for a long term stay: pool, tennis courts, patio,refrigerator, stove,sink ,TV,internet. We loved are week stay with the Easterner and having double units for the family worked great. It is quite and set back from the main drag and offers a very relaxed atmosphere. All the other quests were all very pleasant too. It is by far the best value in Southampton and we have already reserved our week for next year!
