We just returned from a 3 day visit to the Surf Lodge in Montauk. I travel a lot (pre COVID), so I have experienced the good and the bad. The rooms at the Surf Lodge are spacious, comfortable and clean. They have been nicely updated. The location is very picturesque and you will be tempted to spend too much time enjoying the sunsets over the view of the lake. However, our stay was taken from good to incredible by the hostess, Amanda. Amanda might be one of the nicest, most accommodating people that we have ever met. Not only did she greet us, make sure that we were happy with our room, but she also let us use her car for three days, so that we could park at the beach. It's the kind of service that you will never forget and that will tell all of your friends about. Amanda, whatever they are paying you, is not enough! You are a wonderful person and awesome at what you do. Thank you for the awesome hospitality!!!

My wife and I went for a long weekend in mi July. We read some reviews and where so excited to go. Long story short, bad service (staff makes you feel you are inconveniencing them, breakfast sad ad scarce, blinds in the room completely translucent, people yelling outside the room. We where fooled by the website.. It is a 3 star hotel in my opinion. We paid 700 use a night. We decided to leave a day earlier to the city, and not even complained..didn't wanted to deal with the staff..

Posting this review in March 2020 for a stay from Aug 2019 because I was recently reminded what a disaster mess my last experience was. The flashbacks were so strong that I am confident even months later I can get an honest review out. I’ve stayed at The Surf Lodge each year for the last 3 years. Each year the stay has been getting significantly worse. Pros are the products in the room and the wristbands to the concerts. The cons are the staff making you feel like you are inconveniencing them with your existence. Breakfast used to a spread be out in the dining area and was changed this past year to a waitress bringing over a sad bowl of yogurt and granola. Restaurant food is overpriced and average at best. Trying to get the wristbands for the concerts (best part) involved being ignored for 10 minutes by beautiful but flippant hostesses then speaking to a lady who gave us the attitude and repeatedly questioned our assertions that we were guests. Eventually we procured said wristbands with some dignity still intact, but damn. Will stay elsewhere for the coming summer.

My husband and I went to Montauk every other weekend and did a share house with some friends. We have not been in about 4 years because we moved to the west coast and wanted to go back. We decided to stay at the surf lodge. Issues: -we were told we would have a water front room. When we arrived our room was blocked 100% by trees and bushes. We asked to switch and were moved to another room with trees and bushes blocking the view. When we went to ask what was going on we were told word for word "it is a water front view-it's just behind the bushes." We were told they actually don't have water front rooms unless you book the suites- however their website advertises the room we booked as water front. We put a premium on having water front-- their website blatantly lied.The rooms are not worth the price to stare at a bunch of dirty bushes. -It smelled like sewer for the first day because they had a party the day we arrived. It was clear that this party was their main priority. -Our room had so many bugs in it. We had to kill about 10-15 every night. -People yelling outside our room -Trash, cigarette buds, old broken chairs, old broken umbrellas stacked in the beach area to the point it was gross to sit at. -We went for complimentary breakfast and waited forever to be served. When we were it was yogurt and berries. Pretty lame breakfast. -Blinds in the bedroom are completely translucent- you get woken up when the sun comes up. This is absurd to me. They could not provide me with an eye mask or tell me where to get one in town. -I was excited because on the website it lists products and amenities in the room. We did not book for the products and amenities, but it gives off the impression that the hotel is nice. They claim they have dyson hairdryers (they do not). They claim that you get goop products etc... and some things to take home. When I asked they said that is only on Saturday nights. Again nothing on the website indicates this. False advertising. -None of the bikes worked Literally nothing about this hotel was good. I have stayed at b&b's, hostels, and bungalows without power that were nicer than this and I have been happier with. Save your money and stay someplace else. They did give us 50% off one of three nights after we complained. It was still not worth it to us. If you are coming to attend their parties and get a wristband then it is probably worth it for you.
