What a find this was! I always have a hard time to find a decent hotel traveling with my dog. But this one is absolutely perfect and so reasonable (at the time we stayed)!! Staff are super friendly and laid-back. Needless to say they adored my pup. The property is very clean and well cared yet letting my dog feel... More

We love our repeat guests ( and their pets) and so glad you had an awesome time with us. Now that we are in the peak season, please remember that a dogs time on the beach is limited to before 10am and after 6pm. Also, mention that you would like to book a pet friendly room, because there is a... More

We loved Daunt's!! Our room was ready before check-in time on July 4th weekend (incredible) and we walked into a clean, bright room with an awesome bed, nice linens and plenty of space. Location couldn't be better - the walk to the beach is 30 seconds and you're right in the center of town. Leo and the Daunt's team were... More

The staff at the Daunt's Albatross Motel was wonderful. Check-in was at 3:00 PM but we arrived around 11:00am. They did everything they could do to get us in our room ASAP. We asked where could we rent some beach chairs and they took us outside on there property and told us to help ourselves to beach chairs, bikes, umbrellas... More

We believe our guests should start vacationing as soon as they set foot in Montauk and try to provide as many tools as possible ! It makes us happy to see people enjoying themselves at the Albatross. Hope you come back our way soon ! More

Wow...I was so pleasantly surprised by this great, little place. First of all, the hospitality from owner Jimmy, and the 2 lovely Irish girls at the front desk, was exactly what you'd hope to find at a small, family-owned motel in Montauk. They couldn't have been more welcoming and made me feel right at home. Jimmy is doing amazing things... More

Pros: Location, location, location!!! It is walking distance to beach and town, about a block away from both. The room had a kitchenette with a small balcony. In the courtyard there are gas grills and tables available. There are lovely girls from Ireland who work there for the summer. Cons: There are also bicycles available for use, but when we... More

We stayed for 2 nights and we loved it! The room was very clean and a good size, plenty of towels and pillows. The girl at the front desk was so sweet and welcoming I wish I remembered her name. The location is great, a 2 minute walk to the beach and there were a ton of grills to cook... More

My second time here. Had a ground level room opening on the courtyard. Very clean and neat. Actually better than the room I had last time which was upstairs. Staff is friendly. Right near the beach and the center of town.

Daunt's was the perfect place to stay in Montauk. Clean, comfortable, nice pool, nice people, perfect beachy vibe. Restaurants, shops, and beach all within walking distance. We liked it so much there we decided to stay an extra night and they were very accommodating. Great customer service and good prices. We will absolutely stay there again. And next time we'll...

We are so glad we had the extra night available for you. It's been a busy season already! We keep the grills- or at least one going- all year long, unless the weather is really bad. Burgers are great in the middle of winter ! Check our website for specials if you will be booking again off season ! More

Right near the ocean (around the corner) and convenient to town and restaurants. Rooms were clean and bed was comfortable; friendly staff. On the down side, the walls were very thin between rooms and some of the wall sockets were so wobbly as to be unusable. However, we were near the office and I think they keep quieter (read older)...

Very good location to downtown (2-3 minute walk) and the beach. If you call to reserve ask if any work is being done near your room.Check the Montauk website for a possible better rate than on other sites, i did not and saw the rate was much lower than on this site. I recommend Daunt's
