This place exceeded all my expectations for a beach getaway - the rooms are literally steps from the beach. The beach is fully staffed, and when you walk up to the entrance there is an attendant who happily puts out your chairs, umbrellas and towels / chaise covers for you. (I gave the guy a few dollars for the effort... More

My friend and I chose this place based on fairly good TA reviews. It was a last minute booking in mid August for a Thursday night stay which was pricy at $400+ for a one bedroom unit, but at least the place is right on the beach. The one bedroom turned out to be a studio as there was some... More

My wife, daughter and I have just returned from 5 days here and we loved it. It was our first trip to this beautiful part of the world and the hotel's proximity to the beach, to Montauk and to the Hamptons meant it was a great base for us to both enjoy the sunshine and explore the area.

I planned a stay with a few friends and they let me choose the hotel. We were all satisfied with the accommodations, service ,and most importantly the location. Our room faced the ocean, very easy and quick access. A perfect mini vacation.

one room had two queen beds and a very rudimentary kitchen. The other, a king bed and pullout couch with a real kitchen. Rooms were clean and maid service good. Back of room fr Noted dunes of nearby state park. Highway a little noisy back there though. Beds seemed pretty hard.

Loving this place! We were searching for a clean, affordable place for a one night stay for our family of five. Love that it is walking distance to a private beach with lounges. At night, you can make a fire on the beach. We had the whole place to ourselves and the view of the sky and stars was spectacular.... More
