We loved our stay at the Born Free. We plan on coming back every summer as the family really enjoyed the trip. The walk to the beach was within yards from the motel, and the service was great there! Thanks for an awesome experience. I definitely recommend this motel to anyone wanting to travel to Montauk!

This charming suite was perfectly beachy, comfortable, and inexpensive. Located central on the montauk waterfront strip, 5 minute walk into town and near the Bakery for early AM coffee. The room was clean, beach themed, friendly service. We are a family of 3 with a young child and she just adored this place. Across the street from the ocean, but... More

Went for St. Patrick's weekend and had a nice room with seperate living room and small kitchen with table and pull out sofa. The second floor rooms have a deck with great views of the ocean where you can sit and just enjoy the fresh ocean air. The whole place was clean and nicely decorated.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Born Free motel for our 2 year anniversary. We hadn't been to Montauck before and were just looking to relax in a quiet lazy place and that's what we found when we got to Born Free. The rooms were extremely clean with the cutest decor. We were right across the street from the... More

We just got back from the Born Free Motel. I found it to be a nice place to stay. It's just across the road from the beach. There was a stove, fridge, microwave a coffee maker and pots and pans. Bring some groceries with you, they are expensive in Montauk. Everything was nice and clean. I don't know what motel... More

we stayed here before and never experienced such an awful room. the room was the color of pepto bismol, the couch sunk when you sat and the bed was like a cardboard box! The shower water trickled down to the point of me not wanting to wash my hair for fear of not knowing if I could get the shampoo... More

Each unit in this hotel is owned individually (condos), and our unit was fantastic. It had everything we needed for our short stay, plus games, books, and a kitchen that held the minimal essentials. I would definitely stay again, but I would request our room on the seond floor.

After a harrowing experience at the #4 best-rated hotel on Montauk, my boyfriend and I were just about ready to head home, but we convinced ourselves to venture into Montauk proper and analyze our options there. South Emerson Street runs along the length of the beachfront and is lined on both sides with beachy hotels and motels of all stripes... More

Thin walls, noisy, dirty, old, there were rooms full of teenagers that were fighting, yelling and getting drunk and the staff did not doing anything about. Would never stay here again! Had to find another hotel to stay at the last night because I was not able to get any sleep.

This place was perfect for a weekend get away from the city. There are not a lot of open businesses in Montauk in the fall/winter but Born Free was a great cozy place to shack up. A whole condo for a great value, very very clean, cute sailor decor, big flat screen TVs. Everything you would need for a cozy... More
