Montauk Yacht Club Resort & Marina

It's obvious that the glowing reviews of the Montauk Yacht Club were written by the staff or owners of the this dump. (Notice the complete lack of detail and canned phrases used in these recommendations.)

How much did I despise this hotel? Oh let me count the ways:

-the room and hallways reeked of chlorine (from the grotesque indoor pool) and mildew, a pungent combo.
-the place looks like it was last updated—not to mention cleaned—thirty years ago. The sheets, curtains, and furniture were extremely cheap and the mattress was saggy.
-the staff was surly and unprofessional (they got into fights in front of guests and just loitered around, looking bored). Upon seeing the room, we turned around and begged the asst manager to give us our money back, to no avail. He did offer to upgrade us to a "better" room, which smelled and looked even worse than our original room.
-the pool was tiny and ugly.
-the food at the breakfast buffet was awful-- the Eggs Benedict was rock hard and the smoked salmon tasted as if it had been sitting uncovered in a refrigerator for a week.
-a "samba band," which consisted of 5 strange looking men dressed in ill fitting green t-shirts and Tevas, banging on upside down trash cans, played very loudly (so loud the noise was deafening even with our sliding glass doors closed) for several hours.
-the other guests were loud, obnoxious and dressed mostly in wife beater tank tops and jean shorts.
-the appropriate price for a room at this hole would be $50-$75. We paid a high season rate of $414. (It's a long story, but we ended up here when another hotel in East Hampton lost our reservation and we had no choice but to stay here.) We travel frequently and have no problem paying for beautiful rooms and outstanding service- neither of which were available at the Montauk Yacht Club. A Holiday Inn would have felt like The Carlyle compared to this place, which really did remind us of a 70's era motel.

You've been warned.

We read so many good reviews on this place we figured we couldn't go wrong. Well, we did! It was horrible. They could not find our reservation and when they finally did, it was not what we reserved. They apologized, but then told us to "take it or leave it." The room was so dirty, we had to keep our shoes on.

We ate in the restaurant, and although the food was good the service was horrible! We got the impression from the Maitre D that they were doing us a favor by allowing us to eat there. Trust me, the food wasn't that good.

This place need a total overhaul. Property and staff! I would be embarrassed to recommend anyone to them!

We stayed there in April 2005 and paid about $130 a night including a decent breakfast. The first room we were given hadn't been cleaned so we had to wait while the figured out where to put us. To their credit they gave us an upgrade to a better room by way of apology. The rooms are okay, kind of motel-like which is acceptable for the price we paid but definitely not worth the $300+ a night they charge in high season.

My main complaint is that the walls are paper-thin and you can hear the slightest sound coming from the adjacent rooms. We were staying next door to two old women who nattered like hens until 2.30 in the morning and kept us awake. I will probably try somewhere else the next time I'm in Montauk.

Montauk Yacht Club is the only place to be on the Island. The staff there is great!!!! The surroundings are so relaxing and I don't think anyone there knows the word no. They take care of everything. The food at the restaurant is outstanding. Although we were there when it rained, the view from the restaurant is beautiful. You should really visit this place for the weekend.

i live on long island so i booked a two night stay mid-week on an internet site to stay in montauk. big mistake. i paid rack rate(only rate available at the time).the first night was ok. upon returning to our room the second night about 4pm from the pool we found house keeping stripping our beds. when i said we were a stayover they called the desk and were told that we would be spending the next night in another room! we were not told this at checkin. we were dripping wet and i had no private place to change the kids into dry clothes so we were forced to change with housekeeping trying to clean at the same time. a disgrace! storming into the front desk i confronted the clerk and asked why we were not told at check - in. we got no satisfactory reply. by now, my kids were acting up. i decided to cancel the next night and packed to leave as i live fairly close. at home i called to speak to the reservation supervisor who told me basically this is the way internet reservations are handled. i insisted that she make amends immediately. she offered me a coupon for another nite stay. iagreed thinking it would be a free night. when i got the coupn it was for a non -peak season night for 99$. what a bargain. need less to say i did not use it. i get treated better when i stay at hotels in nj and pa for 99$. the only reason they can get away with this is they are on the marina and they do weddings, so beware.

We stayed at the Montauk Yacht Club for our Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The hotel staff was great, it seemed each one of the staff members were there just for us. Our accommodations were great, the view of the marina was beautiful and last but not least was the Thanksgiving buffet at Ill Mare restaurant again the food and service was outstanding. We will go back.

I found out about the Montauk Yacht Club from a good friend of mine. I went with my family for a weekend and we all had a great time. There is something for everyone. My wife went shopping and sat on the beach with a book and I went fishing with by sons. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had dinner at Il Mare, a Italian restaurant at the resort, it was great. We will return as soon as we can.
