This review is so overdue. First, some background: I've been staying in Montauk almost every summer, anywhere from a long weekend to a week and a half, for almost 40 years. My parents, my brother and I stayed at Ocean Surf when it was owned by someone else. We stayed at many Montauk hotels and resorts over the years. As an adult, after trying a few others, my husband and I came back to Ocean Surf (now owned by Vinnie and his family). We've stayed in the "platinum" rooms each time, and it just doesn't get any better for views and beach access (we've stayed on the ground floor -- you can feel the salt spray at night when you sit out on your deck). Yes, it has a "motel" feel and is not loaded with amenities (but it has a really nice, clean pool). Yes, it is expensive -- but relative to accommodations in Montauk, it's not -- it is right in line. But if you accept that you will pay to stay right on the beach, an stone's throw from the waves, and that part of Montauk's charm is a retro, basic vibe, then this is the place for you. Vinnie will really go out of his way for you, and is genuinely glad to see you return. If you have an issue or a special request, just ask -- in our experience, he always does his best to meet your needs. Also, the hotel is located on a stretch of beach that is not crowded. If you take a walk to Ditch Plains, you'll see that many of the larger hotels are clustered together and the beach in front feels much more like Jones Beach on a summer holiday than spacious Montauk. The rooms are basic but very clean, the beds are comfortable, you've got a little kitchenette, and you can walk into town. Sip a glass of wine on your deck as the sun goes down, it is absolutely heaven!!! We've moved to San Francisco, and will miss Ocean Surf!!!
