“Wonderful Place to Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

We needed a place to stay that was reasonably priced during a reunion trip to the Hamptons. Forever Bungalows was recommended to us by a local friend and we are very grateful for the suggestion. It is a delightful little motel with an amazingly friendly staff. The room was beautifully updated and very "green". The little patio out back was delightful as well. Overall, a terrific place to stay and quite reasonably priced for the area.

I was incredibly disappointed ,,, first and foremost their locale was quite misleading. It's off a two lane blacktop county route, no where near water, rather situated in the dark, creepy woods....hardly a "beach scene" as his promotional pictures imply. The ocean beaches take way too long to drive to so you are forced to bay side. There are some five bungalows, primarily this is a two story motel with a new paint job, I had the worst room , in the corner, first floor and mine was the only car in the parking lot. This was NOT comforting! Yes, the room was clean....I would hope so, that is the bare minimum! There was not even a coffee pot in the room although I was told i could bring my own! WHAT? No hot plate, small stove .... whatever....those are probably for the "bungalows"...again, misleading,Yes, the rooms were clean, but that should be a "given" not an extra!!! The manager/owner is conveniently NOT available. Very hard to find this place, the website directions gave those crummy Yahoo maps directions which are so convoluted and non nondescript. No landmarks, no one to ask, these are county roads with nothing on them but homes set into the woods. So is this motel.
A major bust as far as I am concerned. And you really need to know the area, there is no one there to help, all I got was a map i.e. "Here, figure it out" I would not even consider this Sag Harbor, they are really East Hampton, the bay side.

Room Tip: YOu could do much better in the Hamptons, they are no where near the beach, better have a car and k...

While we are never happy with anyone being disappointed, sometimes reviews which attempt unfairly to bash or discredit a business are difficult to respond to...nevertheless what follows is an earnest attempt at a respons. Our location is one mile from the historic district of the village of Sag Harbor, and our position on the main road that runs between East Hampton and Sag Harbor is exactly why many people choose our hotel. We are an easy bike to bay beaches and the village and Sag Harbor is surrounded by water (there is even a 'secret beach' down a country road next to the hotel we clue our guests in on) As for the ocean, it is a 10 to 15 min drive -- but there is no ocean in Sag Harbor -- everyone has to drive to the southampton/bridgehampton/easthampton side to get to the ocean. Our hotel DOES offer FREE ocean beach passes -- which very few establishments do, and they are necessary and a perk guests really appreciate. People usually love our decor, it's more than a paint job, look at our website to see our rooms -- we are proud of them. Our 6 bungalows have full kitchens for people who want to cook. Our boutique hotel rooms have larger than mini fridges and are sleek rooms for people availing themselves of the many Sag Harbor restaurants. And our 'Hello Lounge" serves endless FREE Nespresso coffee, water, fresh fruit, and offers a variety of other snacks and beverages for purchase. The hotel is not 'set in the woods' it's on a main thoroughfare everyone (from mapquest and GPS to locals and visitors) knows - Rt 114. We have one or two people on site at all times to answer questions, give directions with maps, make suggestions, and generally help out. One of these people is always at the front desk in our centrally located 'Hello Lounge" We are very proud of our staff and how they add to the experience of staying at our hotel.

My husband and I wanted to take a trip up to Sag Harbor, and revisit some old stomping grounds. What a charming little place. We spent 5 nights in the two bedroom suite bungalow. It was simply furnished and spotless. It felt like we were the first occupants. Super comfortable beds. Take a camp chair to enjoy the small patio off the master bedroom. Fully functioning kitchen, so a quick trip to King Kullen (local grocery) and you're all set. Coffee maker is a french press, so pack some instant if you're unsure how to use it. Also pack a couple of large mugs, theirs are small. At this time they don't have cable, they have streaming Netflix. The only negative is the unreliability of the internet signal, but they are working on it. Sarah in the office is a total sweetheart. Hope to return next summer, what a delight.

Definitely the best place to stay in Sag Harbor...anyone planning on travelling to Eastern Long Island should stay here. Staff was great, room was clean and very spacious, and close to all the beaches and restaurants. Would definitely go back!

My fiancé & I got a Travel Zoo deal to stay here for a mini break away from NYC. We had a wonderful time, everything was perfect. We hired bikes and rode into the the harbor & to the beach. We are not regular Bike users & it was quite a way so if you don't like exercise then you really need a car! Sarah at the front desk was excellent & helped us out with whatever we needed. We are definitely planning on going back. We didn't want to leave! We loved the rooms & they were VERY clean! We would definitely recommend it to our friends & family!

My boyfriend and I stayed for one night and had the best time! We rented bikes and rode to town to enjoy the freshest oysters I've ever had at The Doc House. We also enjoyed the beach. The people in Sag Harbor are really down to earth nice people. The staff at Forever Bungalows went above and beyond to make our experience a positive one. We will definitely be back!

Room Tip: We had suite number 3, it was large and had a second room for another guest.

Forever Bungalows is the perfect place to stay in Sag Harbor. It's private, really clean and relaxing! My husband and I checked in and felt totally at home, no traces that any other guests had ever stayed there before. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Close enough to all restaurants while feeling a bit "removed". We'll be staying here again!
