“Excellent time at the Born Free Suites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014

We have been staying at the Born Free for over 20 years. The memories of Montauk & this motel has been wonderful. It was such a pleasure meeting with Stacy this past week. She along with Sasha have complemented this fine establishment. They are professional and accommodate all their guests. We look forward to our next stay!

Room Tip: All rooms are good, the hotel is one block from the ocean.

My family has been coming to Montauk and staying at the Born Free for the past 12 years. We love it, the units ( and we've stayed in many of them) are just great. Studios without kitchens are nice, but we like to sometimes cook, so the kitchen one bedroom efficiency works out nicely. Stacy and Sasha have been who we've been dealing with the last 4-5 years, great gals, so helpful and kind. They do their job with a smile. The location is central to basically everything in town, beach feet away from our rooms. All other "family" activities ten minute ride away. Born Free is so family oriented and down right homey, everyone feels comfortable. Many families have their reunions there. When my daughter married six years ago in Montauk, the whole family stayed at the Born free, so many happy memories. A wonderful clean great place for families, couples everyone.

I highly recommend the Born Free Suites. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful (especially Stacy). The room was clean and comfortable. The ocean is directly across the street and the Jitney stop is a two block walk. I will definitely return. Thank you Born Free!!

Born Free was nice and convenient to all. Beware if you have any problem such as an emergency and have to cancel. They are not understanding they just keep repeating the rules. While the day manager sounds as sweet as pie, She is as sly as a fox. Not understanding not caring not a place I want to give my money.

My husband and I have been going to Montauk and specifically The Born Free hotel for 20+ years (he was actually an owner of one of the units in the 80's). This weekend was his bday and boy, did we ever enjoy ourselves! From having the priviledge of meeting Stacy-Ann Williams, the hotel's consigliary who helped us immensley with everything from assuring us the room would be warm when we got there because Montauk was going through a cold snap when we arrived to really understanding 'the customer experience' and assuring us the best way to decide on which room for our summer stay would be best for my husband and I and my mother-in-law (with an injured hip and some memory loss). Stacy is a huge asset to The Born Free and I encourage anyone who needs an accomplished, knowledgeable, exceptional hostess to actually cut through the clutter at other hotels and take Stacy's word for it! (And, I must say I know a thing about hotel concierges as I spent most of my career at American Express)....Stacy is 'the real deal' - - -and, her honesty will assure we come back more often this year.

Room Tip: Ask for Stacy. Tell her what you like/dislike and what your needs are. She'll hook you up perf...

We stayed at the Born Free in April and couldn't have been more pleased! The location is amazing - across the beach and across from the Plaza. Our room #20 was on 1st floor and prefect because we had a full beach view and basically private deck. Price was great! Will Def req room 20 at nxt visit!

We loved our stay at the Born Free. We plan on coming back every summer as the family really enjoyed the trip. The walk to the beach was within yards from the motel, and the service was great there! Thanks for an awesome experience. I definitely recommend this motel to anyone wanting to travel to Montauk!
