“Everything we could have asked for”
Reviewed May 13, 2006

My girlfriend and I went for the weekend during our first excursion to Montauk. After a relatively rigorous review of the many lodging options, we opted for the Ocean Resort Inn.

It was off-season, and thus not too busy (most of the shops closed by 2 or 3pm, which left us on our own as far as food was concerned). Ginny was wonderful (who could not like her...), and although we didn't see her after our initial encounter, the staff was very helpful.

Most importantly, it was literally a minute's walk away from the Jitney, the Ocean, and the town. When going to Montauk without a car, this was an absolute must. We are thinking about going back again this summer, and would be very happy to have a repeat stay.

WOW! I love this place. Although I am a tried and true "fancy" Hamptons girl, there is nothing better than a laid back weekend at Ginny's adorable beach hotel! We arrived and she sent us of to the Montauket, for the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen. Then it was off to the Shagawam for kareoke night. Fabulous! Breakfast she sent us to John's, the local pancake house, and then down to the beach for some early spring sun. I asked that she have some champagne on our arrival, and that, like everything else, was no problem at all. WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND! Our room was clean and really cute, we had two bathrooms, which was great for a group of three girls, and the outdoor furniture, chairs and hammocks, were a really quaint touch. I can't wait to go back.

My girlfriend and I spent the weekend in montauk, and could not have asked for a better guide than Ginny. Any questioins we had about dining, beaches, or rentals, Ginny had an answer. Our room was large and comfortable and every morning we woke up to the sound of the ocean right outside our door. The location of the hotel is by far the best in town, with restaurants, shopping, and the nightlife right in your back yard, I would highly recomend a stay to anyone, and I know I will be back.

We did go off season & didn't care about seeing the ocean across the street. We go camping all summer on beach at Shagwong with kids. This was OUR time, that is why we got room with 2 person jacuzzi. Worth it just for that being it was one of two bathrooms. Not fancy but very clean and quiet and within walking distance to all in the village.

We chose the Ocean Resort Inn based on reviews posted here, having never been to Montauk before. We were looking for something cute, near the beach, but not too expensive. This place was perfect. All the motels looked similar, but this one has nice touches like cute picnic tables on the deck, romantic swinging chairs, and pretty flowers. Ginny, the owner, was lovely, answering all our questions and even upgrading us to a better room when she heard it was our anniversary. We look forward to returning there for our anniversary again next year. We also had a nice dinner at East by Northeast. The restaurants were surprisingly busy for a Tuesday in October, but the beach was quiet.

I just returned from a night at the Ocean Resort Inn and must report that if you're expecting anything more than an average motel, you'll be disappointed. The service was only passable and the room was fine but certainly not worthy of its high rating on this site. The bed was old and mushy, there was no hair dryer, and no staff after 5pm to give us much-needed information on a place to eat. It is true that it was clean and across the street from the beach and that's why you're paying what I consider to be a lot of money for this average place.

The rooms were clean and kept so throughout the stay by friendly staff. If you're promised an ocean view, however, please note- you're across the street from the ocean and you'll only catch a glimpse of the sea between the sea-front establishments and the telephone wires but I'm not sure they'd tell you that when you call (they didn't tell us!) The showers are dark and water temp is almost totally uncontrollable. But the staff is very nice and there are beach umbrellas and chairs for lodgers to take at their will. Far cleaner than the Ocean Dune resort across the street.
