To start with, this is a MOTEL. This is not the Ritz Carlton. If you want the Ritz Carlton then stay there. If you want shee shee, then pay through the nose. If you want to enjoy the beach (directly across the street), Cook out in your own private charming back yard (propane included in price! as well as tiny... More

My friends and I have come back to the Southold Beach Motel for five years now. Each year we say, we should try another place. but after we say hello to Amy and her husband(the owners), unpack our bags and walk across the street to sit on the beach, we all say, Why would we change what's already perfect.

Where do I start; the only nice thing about this hotel is the view of the beach directly across the street. The exterior was a moderately upkept facade hiding the grossly over priced dank dark interior. The owner was rude and barely courteous and was more concerned about payment in full up front then anything else. Additionally she tried to... More

The Southold Beach Motel is as close to cabin camping as a motel can get. For me and my girlfriend, that's fine. If you expect the polished amenities of a high-line hotel, then that is the investment that you should make. My girlfriend and I stayed for three nights this past week. I had read the reviews after the fact... More

It was a busy weekend and Amy was very nice, so we figured we would be fine. I have been out to the NF for years, and most of the places are seasonal and past their prime, and it's their location that keeps them going, which is the case here. Walls are paper thin and you can hear everything in... More

I have never written a bad review on trip advisor - this is my first one. The owner was good enough to let us have the room for one night even though there was a two night minimum and that was very much appreciated. Arrived in the afternoon and went to office to check in.

The location has kept this motel in business in spite of a rude arrogant owner, Amy, and dumpy accommodations. The showers barely spit out water, the beds are like plywood, the bed linens and towels are worn out and the furnishings are beyond shabby. And for all this you pay $200+ a night with a two night minimum. Across the... More
