As usual we had a wonderful stay at the Albatross. This is why we keep coming back. The location is so convenient to restaurants and the beach. The staff is friendly and always pays attention to details. The new renovations are beautiful.

Hotel's Favorite
I'm about to check out from another fine stay at Daunt's. I come here largely because of the "old Montauk" vibe, reminiscent of vacations as a kid. Other reasons are because it's a family run business, and the guests' wants and needs are a priority. I'm here off season (one week after the unofficial close of Summer, Labor Day) when the deals are great. Daunt's is the only place I stay in Montauk, it's not fancy (I've never come to Montauk for posh), incredibly clean, and fun. Highly recommended, without exception.

Daunts Albatross is the perfect place to stay when traveling to to Montauk. Perfect location close to town and the beach, great size rooms, and the friendliest staff! Anytime I come to Montauk, whether it be for my families annual trip Columbus Day weekend or a trip in the summer, we choose Daunts! Thank you Leo and everyone at Daunts for all you do to make the stay enjoyable!

Let's get the negatives out of the way first. The in-room furniture is basically the same stuff I might have bought in a low-end thrift shop when I was in college 50 years ago and used it non-stop since. The bathroom is tiny and the towels, well they might have been new when the furniture was new and are clearly intended for a very small person. Now to the positives. The Albatross is just a short walk from the ocean and an equally short walk from downtown Montauk (such as it is). If you're averse to sand and waves, there's a pool. The bed was surprisingly comfortable given the furniture, and the shower terrific. If you're planning a longer stay (we were there for just one night) and didn't want to eat out every night, they've got gas grills and picnic tables in the courtyard. If you're not looking for lux and are packing your own towels, you'll not find a better place to stay in Montauk.

I really enjoy my multiple stays at Daunt's throughout the summer in NY! The rooms are newly updated (some with kitchenette's!), very clean, and spacious. They are located a mere two minute walk from Beach 30, which has amazing views. The staff at Daunt's are unlike any other beachside hotel i've ever stayed at. You become family with them and they are always available to tend to your needs. They even offer breakfast (prior to Labor Day). Most visitors have been coming back for many many years and I am now a part of that special group. I would definitely book here if you are looking for a place that's walking distance from the beach AND the local bar scene. Highly recommend!

Clean rooms, friendly staff, great vibe here!! They had no issue with my service dog. I drive trucks and was easily able to park my truck. Courtyard provides a friendly and inviting space for guests to socialize.

We really enjoyed our stay at Daunt’s Albatross! We’re annual visitors to Montauk for several decades, but it was our first stay here. We were so pleasantly surprised at the amenities and perfect location! Although small, the basic rooms suited our needs for the long weekend just perfectly. Usually we travel with our 2 adult daughters, but being just a couple, on a short stay, we thought we’d give Daunts a try. We’re so glad we did! We’ll definitely be back!

This was absolutely the worst hotel I’ve stayed at, and was a complete waste of money. This hotel is outrageously expensive for an outdated room with cockroaches. Also the hotel charged me more than the room. There is nothing good about this place. Do not book a room here. The room smells like cat piss and smoke I couldn’t even breathe in there. It should be a hazard to stay the night.

Hello Miss Review 101, If there is any discrepancy as far as price, please contact us and we will be happy to refund. For any future guests, our accommodation does not have any roaches. We personally inspect the rooms every day, and do preventative pest maintenance with a local company on a bi-monthly basis. Thank you, Leo Daunt

Leo is the best host. along with his attentive staff. Always available for attending to the smallest detail. My husband and I have been coming here for 25 yrs +. Every year we come back it is upgraded with so many beautiful enhancements. If you are coming to Montauk expecting the Marriott turn around. This is a beach community with beach motels. Leo has turned the Daunt's Albatross into the best seaside hidden gem. One block off the beach . Beautiful pool area and many different room options. Don't pass this diamond in the rough up
