I've been coming to Ruschmeyer's now the past few summers, usually twice a year. Each visit is always met with warm staff and beautiful weather. For a weekend catching up with friends, or just to relax, few places out east offer more in terms of R&R and loads of fun. A very special shout out to the staff for always... More

I have spent multiple weekends at Ruschmeyer's and I can say without a doubt that it is one of the most unique and fun experiences on the island. The hotel consists of 20 cabin style rooms situated around the perimeter of a large open area filled with ping pong tables, cornhole platforms, picnic tables, and hammocks. The hotel entrance and...

More than 400 bucks for one night is ridiculous for this motel. The rooms are spacious, yet not really clean. There are many insects (mosquitoes, spiders, ants) Inside the rooms. The refridgerator and the A/C were noisy and kept you from sleeping at night. The bed was small and way too soft which made you wake up with an aching... More

My wife and I wanted to spend a few days in Montauk with our new puppy in tow. Based on reviews we selected Ruschmeyer's and we were not disappointed. Great location with very friendly staff. Our room was tastefully decorated and adequately furnished...all very clean and working well. The park like grounds provided the perfect place for our young puppy... More

My first time to Montauk so this may be well known to frequent visitors...totally overpriced, granted that is not much different than the Jersey shore in the summer but here you get not much for a lot. If the price were $200 a night this place would not feel too bad. The "motel" was rustic and kind of cool, the... More

Awesome spot! Great vintage feel with a attention to detail. The room was clean and made me feel as though I was at an adult summer camp. The restaurant was fantastic with great service. Highly recommended.

This is a really cool spot. The rooms have a great feel to them and the bar and restaurant is buzzing. The staff could not be nicer. Betsey at check-in cheerfully offered us a great room when we booked this place as a walk-in on a whim. Betsey along with the rest of the staff was great. I loved the... More

get a reservation for dinner and stay for drinks for the night. it's a glorified campground and rooms have little hammocks in them. the restaurant has one bathroom which can be problematic. the back area bar is more like club music, outdoor bar has jenga and the occasional drunk guy stumbling around.

This hotel does a good job of creating the summer camp vibe. The room is just okay; not luxurious but it definitely fits the bill for relaxed montauk. I love the lanterns and lights all over the yard and restaurant; they truly are amazing. Making s'mores at the campfire was fun. The hammocks and backyard games definitely provide a cool... More

Approaching the hotel was very enticing with flowers, trees, a view of the lake, and a large parking lot with bicycles on the side for patrons. We entered the hotel by a 5-step high wooden boardwalk on the side of the building and entered the reception area where we were greeted by a very sweet lady who was extremely helpful... More
