The host David not only made you feel comfortable , but made you feel like family , the rooms were clean and newly decorated with new beds and furniture , flat screen tv , new floors and freshly painted, it was a pleasure to stay there and the grounds made you feel like you were in a county setting , the beaches were close by , that we rode our bikes there . i only wish i brought my water toys , cause the hotel sits on the canal , and your close to all the hot spots like dockers , dune deck , and the shack where they have great lobster bakes , cant wait to go back , trust me , try the drake inn , it a winner .

Room Tip: all the rooms are great and chaming

We happened on the Drake Inn driving through Hampton Bays and found it a charming place to stay for several nights. The staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms newly renovated and comfortable. The ambiance was pleasant with a pool and convenient to the bridge to Shinnecott Inlet. We highly recommend the Inn.

This hotel / inn has plenty of space and room to roam and relax. Sitting on lots of land but arranged to be intimate and comfortable. I was informed that there is a new owner and management and I must say they really know how to make you feel apart from the rest of the world.
The rooms are immaculate and everything is NEW! There are beautiful flowering plants everywhere....the hotel is bay-front and it's close enough to everything you need without the noise or hustle and bustle. A great get-away!!
Management of the hotel was super nice and friendly yet professional.
A perfect little paradise. I highly recommend it if you're looking to kick back, do some boating or fishing and simply enjoy.

me and the wife stayed at the Drake because it was close to what we believe to be the best beach around and we were pleasantly surprised to find that the new owners have created a diamond by the sea. The grounds looked great with new landscaping for great curb appeal and charm. The rooms where totally renovated with a modern touch and they were extremely clean. The dock area was even made into a nice space to sit by the water. David at the front desk was helpful and attended to all of our needs. Overall a great place in a great location.

I called looking for a room at the last minute. They were very helpful and able to get me in a room as soon as i arrived. I see some bad reviews below but my experience was very different. Everything had been remodeled and the rooms have brand new everything from appliances to towels and beds. Flat screen TVs and a very nice couch. They even offered me some cheesecake! Thank you, will definitely come back when i'm in the Hamptons again. Also the rates were very reasonable compared to other Inns with older rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for the room facing the water!
