For the 29th year in a row we spent a wonderful August week at the Sands Motel in Montauk. The location, right across the road from the beach, the amenities - pool, beach supplies, great efficiency rooms, the hard-working staff who keep the motel spotlessly clean which must be very difficult in a beach community with all the outdoors being...

This place was great all around. Andrea was a pleasure while booking and a check-in giving great tips where to go and what to do. Her mother wasn't exactly "cheery" all the time, but I'll forfeit that for the low cost of this place. Everything was clean and the location is perfect. Close to town and right on the beach....

Spent 4 nights in August with my wife and kids, and 3 nights this past weekend with my friends for a fishing trip.. Both trips were perfect.

We were thankful to get 2 rooms with double beds as last minute travelers for a 2 night stay at Montauk. First the good - great location - across the street from the beach and around the corner from town. So you don't need to use your car much. The 2nd story room was better than the 1st floor, which...

My friend and I stayed overnight and would definitely recommend and return.

They definitely don't make you feel welcome. After spending 600 dollars for 2 nights in a dumpy room with a water stained ceiling they could at least be a little friendly.

This place is a total dump, and the staff is rude and angry. I expected much more given the high price tag for a motel. I think they need to charge high rates during the summer months, as they're probably empty most of the rest of the year. So those of us that go in the summertime get jousted. Expensive... More
