“Another Great Visit to the Drake Inn!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

I had a chance to visit the Drake Inn last summer, and found it to be just beautiful. When I returned in June, 2014 with my husband, we stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed the upscale, clean accommodations, the beautiful water view, and the ease of access for the Hamptons, Management was so professional and hospitable in just the right way. having taken the Bridgeport to Port Jefferson Ferry. We also enjoyed the very nice Market/Restaurant right around the corner for delicious breakfasts, and found the oysters at the corner waterfront bar to be excellent. Can't wait to return...

Pros: Great location - on a quiet road. Beautiful and modern room renovation, really liked the kitchen. [good quality] Glassware, dishes and utensils were provided. Fresh pastries each morning and bowl of fruit upon arrival. Room and grounds were meticulously clean/well groomed. Keurig machine in the room. Vending machine and ice. Great sized mini fridge. Terrace with table & chairs. Plenty of storage for clothes and in the bathroom enough draws for toiletries, we didn't have to live out of the suitcase. Comfy bed. Free beach towel and chair rental option. Appreciated the local suggestions of where to eat/ what to do. Loved the staff. Did NOT want to leave!

Cons: There wasn't a curtain or shade in the bathroom window. No privacy while showering, the next door neighbors had an active driveway and could see in. Pool wasn't opened yet during our stay (June 15-18). Screen door didn't shut properly or lock, would have liked to have kept it open over night. Construction workers/cars took up almost all of the parking. The AC unit was a bit loud.The Wifi wasn't good, too slow or couldn't connect.

Recommendations: box of tissues and a roll of paper towels for the kitchen. Open pool sooner. Fix shower privacy issue. supply more toilet paper in the bathroom

Room Tip: All of the rooms are pretty private, but for extra privacy rent one towards the back by the water th...

This was a very quaint place with a very accommodating staff. The rooms are very clean and it was a nice touch to have fresh bakery goods outside of the door in the morning. Bring a picnic and enjoy the view from the canal.

Recently renovated. Stayed there for two nights. Perfect location. View of the canal from the larger units is wonderful. There is a significant variety in room size so it is worthwhile to get a larger room. Owner is terrific. Would stay there again. Penny lane is an adorable street - make sure walk to the end to see the bay.

Room Tip: Speak directly to the manager or owner to know exactly what room you will be getting rather than usi...

I came upon this gem of a hotel by chance and I couldn't have been happier. The rooms were beautiful, with all the amenities. The staff was great and addressed any concerns immediately. The daily delivery of fresh baked goods was an added bonus. Property was quiet and close to the beach, shopping and food. Highly recommended for all!

Stayed there for one night during memorial day weekend. The Inn has been meticulously renovated - super comfy bed, brand-new flat screen TV and top-notch appliances in the kitchenette, with many lovely details. We loved the fresh fruit waiting for us at the room upon arrival and the pastries served at breakfast. The inn is right by the canal with nice views of the bay and is a very short ride to the nearby beach. It is a wonderful base to explore the Hamptons, yet feels quaint and relaxed. We had a great time and can't wait to be back!

Recently my hubby and I had to attend a family function in South Hampton.
After reading the excellent reviews on a place we never heard of before,
The Drake Inn, we decided to book the weekend there.

We are very glad we did and agree with everything we had read before booking.
Super clean, well designed and very comfortable, it seemed that every need and more difficult to anticipate every want was taken care of. The décor was modern but welcoming, and the kitchenette was perfect for making coffee and having snacks handy. The coffee was made even better by the pastries that were delivered to our room Saturday and Sunday mornings. We even had a visit from the most beautiful Swan that swan right up to the dock near our room.

And...to top it all...the price, when comparing it to any establishment in the area of such a caliber, was
a gift.

In short we had a splendid weekend at The Drake Inn, our new home in the Hamptons.
