The Montauk Beach House is situated in the heart of downtown Montauk, and is a block from the Atlantic Ocean surf beaches and a short stroll to Montauk's most exciting shops, restaurants, bars and cafés.We are a 33-room boutique hotel with an active environment that encompasses a lively outdoor bar scene and entertainment within its grounds. Our summer season is booked with special events including DJs, live music, fashion shows, and other social gatherings with one common goal: a bit of serious fun.So if you understand what we are about, be prepared to have a rather splendid time!The Hotel lobby has a bustling atmosphere, with an open-air feel - afforded by the giant wall of glass doors that open to the street. Soaring ceilings, beautiful art, and décor set the scene. The Hotel's quirky and fun furniture intrigues you as you move through the lobby past the Café - an espresso bar serving Left Hand artisan coffee: freshly baked croissants, and other light fare.

We have been coming here for years but the place is run down and needs a face lift. The lounge chairs are so uncomfortable. The cushions are so worn and dirty. The fire pit area is equally dirty with bird poop all over the furniture. I saw a dog relive himself near the place where people eat! I saw someone change a diaper on the lounge chair. I saw someone throw up in the pool. The staff could care less. You don’t even see people cleaning in the pool area. The pool staff is cold and don’t even try . Love the location but they have to get everyone on the same page.

Glad you love the location and have been a guest in previous years. We take note of all your listed concerns but we genuinely disagree with your description of the staff. Our staff is known to be extremely friendly and attentive to detail despite being through 2 summer seasons in the middle of a global pandemic. That being said we are constantly striving to improve the property and we hope if you decide to return that you will find an experience more to your liking.

I have never experienced worst service In my life. Pool waitress literally nonexistent. When she did prince the pool and delight you with her presence she was dismissive and walked away in the middle of your sentence. Woman at front desk no better. Barely greeted or made eye contact. Don’t bother.

We take every guest review seriously and try not to question the motivation or mental health of any reviewer. But from time to time we encounter a review where our faith in our fellow human beings is really tested which is the case here. As readers of our reviews the overwhelming majority are positive and attest to both the friendliness and helpfulness of our staff from the front desk to the service staff. We understand that from time to time we can all have a moment when our emotions get the better of us. But when a guest goes as far as to write disparaging scribblings on a check about our staff I think we have to draw the line. Our Director of Operations did politely meet with 3 of the 4 guests in this group to address their concerns which seemed to be a satisfactory resolution of those concerns at the time. But apparently the 4th member who was not present when we addressed their concerns decided that no matter how we addressed them it wasn't sufficient to avoid the threatened bad review. All that being said we hope that someday in the future to welcome this guest back when perhaps they are at a happier more emotionally controlled point in their life.

The MBH provided the perfect getaway for us. We needed a few days to unwind and we couldn’t have picked a better spot. The decor was comfortable and fresh, inside and out. Our room (Whitewater Loft) was a nice size with a balcony. It was nicely appointed with nice quality linens, fixtures and toiletries. (There was no service in compliance with Covid restrictions) Nice cruiser style bikes were complimentary and we definitely enjoyed them for a few hours of exploring Montauk. We spent hours enjoying the outdoor area including the 2 pools, numerous fire tables, restaurant and bar. Everyone was so friendly and treated us so well! They made us feel special. Can’t ask for more than that!

I have been coming out to Montauk almost every year for the past 30 years. This place is better than it has ever been. The renovation is very well done, the addition of chairs, umbrellas and beach towels is really nice. The staff is fabulous. I can’t wait to come back

Spent Fourth of July here with another couple. Good COVID protocols in terms of spacing at the pool and limiting of outside guests. The rooms are a bit rustic but very accurately described on the website. Our initial king room on a bottom floor near the pool was very loud due to a party upstairs. The hotel graciously moved us the following day and did as best as they could keeping other guests quiet at night. The hotel itself is an older building and sound travels. Coffee bar in the lobby served good coffee. Food in the garden was generic but totally fine. Suspect during non COVID travel the pool is much more of a scene than it was during our trip. If you’re looking for a short stay in Montauk near the beach could certainly do worse.

Thanks so much for the great review and glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Glad we were able to accommodate your requests and yes sound does travel bit more than some may prefer in an iconic restored beach community hotel. But we hope the amenities and vibes offset the inconvenience of the sound from your noisy neighbors. That being said we're glad you stayed with us and that you were able to enjoy Montauk in the middle of this global pandemic.
