We went to the restaurant there twice during a pretty bad stay at the blue hotel as our way to feel like we still "had it". The food was amazing, the staff extremely friendly, and relaxed with the kids (4 and 6). The hotel guests that we were sharing table with were very interesting. It felt like the coolest Williamsburgians... More

Had an amazing stay with a group of friends towards the end of the summer season. The staff - particularly Betsy, Marcella and Paulina - were incredible. Attentive, yet allowed us room to relax and feel at home. The upscale 'camping' theme here is pretty unique - topped off with campfire, hoola hoops and corn hole to play in between... More

This is my second attempt leaving a review on Tripadvisor with my gripes, after the first mysteriously disappeared... My boyfriend and I spent one night in Ruschmeyer's and were thoroughly disappointed by our experience. I detail below the specific problems we had. In short, we found the hotel completely lacking in service and amenities, even for a three star hotel.... More

We loved this place, yes it's pretty punchy on the wallet, but this is Montauk in Summer, everywhere is. The staff were lovely, couldn't have been more accommodating. The setting is awesome, the rooms have a beachy feel about them but are clean and well appointed. Free bikes to explore. Beaches nearby. Nice little personalised welcome note on our bed.... More

Ruschmeyer's was a great spot! It had an great campground feel outside our hotel room: the hotel surrounded a green grassy picnic like hangout area with picnic tables, decorative umbrellas, corn hole, ping pong, a fire pit and globe shaped lamps that hang from the trees which lead to the restaurant, bar, and club. Perfect ambiance for a Montauk get... More

Ruschmeyer's is like camp for really fun adults... the absolute best camp! The staff, especially Tyler, Paulina, Betsy and Marcela deserve recognition for all their help and great service! We made bracelets during the day, relaxed in the hammock, a little hula hooping and then went to the beach. Brunch on Sat was delic although I wish they hadn't run... More

I've been coming to Ruschmeyer's now the past few summers, usually twice a year. Each visit is always met with warm staff and beautiful weather. For a weekend catching up with friends, or just to relax, few places out east offer more in terms of R&R and loads of fun. A very special shout out to the staff for always... More

I have spent multiple weekends at Ruschmeyer's and I can say without a doubt that it is one of the most unique and fun experiences on the island. The hotel consists of 20 cabin style rooms situated around the perimeter of a large open area filled with ping pong tables, cornhole platforms, picnic tables, and hammocks. The hotel entrance and...

More than 400 bucks for one night is ridiculous for this motel. The rooms are spacious, yet not really clean. There are many insects (mosquitoes, spiders, ants) Inside the rooms. The refridgerator and the A/C were noisy and kept you from sleeping at night. The bed was small and way too soft which made you wake up with an aching... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Ruschmeyer's, a nautical 'Summer camp' located minutes from the beach, was originally built in 1952 on 3 acres of lush, lakeside woodland. We have recently renovated the 19 'cabins', restaurant, lounge and electric eel (nightclub), and are now taking reservations. Ruschmeyer's offers a slew of activities from ping pong and yoga to corn hole and movie night. Ruschmeyer's offers complimentary bicycles, wifi, and breakfast - all included in the room rate. ... more   less
