Reviewed March 30, 2013

Honestly, this is the best place to stay while visiting the Hamptons. They have every amenity of a big chain, without the shock-sticker price. The property is well kept, near to practically everything. They have a small access to the Bay beach which is great for relaxing either early morning or late afternoon. The ocean beaches are but a 5 min. drive,, and there are plenty of restaurants and things to do. We tried the shopping and browsing in Southampton and had a great time.My girlfriend and I are looking forward to this summers' stay.

Room Tip: Ask for an efficiency. That way you don't have to wait for the office to open for coffee in the...

I'd like to keep this short and sweet. The motel was marvelous and exceeded all of our expectations. My wife and I, along with our 3 children, could not have been happier. By no means is this place meant to rival the hotel chains, and that is a GREAT thing. The service is personal and very friendly. Rooms were meticulously clean. The atmosphere was perfect. Overall, our stay at the Ocean View was sublime!

Room Tip: If possible, get a room overlooking the bay!

In August 2012, my wife and I took a mini vacation to East End Long Island as it is in driving distance. The diner in Hampton Bays recommended Ocean View Terrace across Shinnecock Canal. We were in a room with king size bed, door opend to a patio with chairs etc. giving a full viewe of Shennecock Bay ans swimming pool. Owners are very nice people and we truly enjoyed our stay, and, are looking forward to going back this yeaR

The Ocean View Terrace is a beautiful place to stay. The property is spotless, the gardens are well kept with the flowers blooming with vibrant colors and the pool is the place to be on a breezy afternoon after the beach. We had one of the rooms overlooking the pool and facing the bay. Our stay could not have been nicer. The coffee, juice and danish in the morning made for lazy starts to the ocean beach which is only 2 and a half miles away. The villages are also nearby for browsing and diners in the evening. Thank you to the wonderful people who run it. We will be back for more good times.

Room Tip: The best Views are from the rooms overlooking the pool

We were in Hampton Bays and found this wonderful place to stay on our trip to a family funeral.
The management and especially the owner were so gracious that we made reservations to go back and stay for a week this July. We cannot find enough words to describe the Ocean View.
Even though it was October and the leaves were falling, the grounds were kept spotless. The nearby restaurants were within walking distance and we did not have to drive. We just got an email from the management that this summer is their 30th Anniversary and they have some surprises for their guests. I cannot wait to go back!!

Room Tip: chose the two bedroom suite. It was almost like being home.

We were staying at another place in the Hamptons and decided to look around for a somewhat better place. We found it at the Ocean View Terrace. Not only it was better but it was more moderately priced and a lot cleaner which counts for a lot! Their pool was closed in late September, but their inviting loungers down by their private beach made the stay at the Ocean View Terrace memorable. The young lady at the office, Angela, was the nicest and most informative desk clerk. Would highly recommend a stay at the Ocean View if you have to be at or visiting the Hamptons.

Room Tip: rooms overlooking the pool and facing water.

We stayed at the Ocean View Terrace for 3 nights in August. The room we had was an efficiency unit which was perfect for cooking breakfast etc. Had all the pots & pans, utensils for the limited cooking we did. It also had a small fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. The beds were comfortable and the unit was very clean. Penny and the other staff gave us many great suggestions on things to do during our stay. The hotel is situated close to many beaches, restaurants, and attractions but you will need a car. One notable beach we spent the day at was called Cooper's Beach. This beach is one of the most gorgeous beaches I have been to. The parking is a little pricey ($40) but worth even cent. Just the drive there is unbelievable. The "summer" homes along Gin Lane are something to behold. We drove out to Montauk one day as well. The highway is very busy though. Do take time along the way to stop at "Yesterdays Treasures"...unbelievable!
The highway in front of the motel can be a little noisey in the mornings... but not a deal breaker.
Overall an affordable, clean, friendly place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 105 is an efficiency unit. Has view of the pool.
