This place is a total dump, and the staff is rude and angry. I expected much more given the high price tag for a motel. I think they need to charge high rates during the summer months, as they're probably empty most of the rest of the year. So those of us that go in the summertime get jousted. Expensive... More

This is our second year in Montauk and don't think we will return for our third year to this hotel. We had a friend and his cousin fly in from Manhattan for just the day to the local air strip so our party of 8 turned to be a party of 10. Management made a stink and made our company... More

When I'm in Montauk, i's all about the beach. The Sands is literally acorss the street from one of the nicest stretches of beach in town. Because local parking is limited, the beach gets less crowded even during busy weekends. "Downtown" Montauk is a short stroll away. IGA is even closer. The rooms are clean and fresh. The "Sloppy Tuna",... More

Tiny bathrooms and out dated rooms - this is a true Motel but also very clean. I actually love the location and the owners and since we do not spend much time in the rooms in Montauk as there is SO much to do - these accommodations work just fine! Pool, grounds and rooms are well kept and directly across... More

Our family has been coming to the Sands for many years. Family run & room recently renovated and always clean and well cared for. Great location: close to mini-golf and town. Best pool in Montauk which is always clean. Great beach just across the street that's not too crowded.

We recently stayed here for a 3 night stay. We had a queen size room on the ground floor. Like most places in Montauk, the room was dated and small, no frills. It was very clean in the room and around the property. Great location directly across the street from a fairly uncrowded part of the beach, next door to... More

My husband and 2 small children just returned from a 5 day stay here. This year was even better than the last. Very friendly staff, convenient location, great property. You really can't ask for more with this motel. I highly recommend.

The sands motel is located very central in montauk. Just across street from beach access. Room was clean, but very small. Bathroom was so small I don't know if someone over 200 lbs could get to toilet. Bed was full size and not most comfy, we are used to king bed. There is a pool and swings for families with... More
