“Nice beach”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Good things, front desk staff, grounds keepers, cleaning woman, pool, beach. Room 213, could be nice if they fixed drain in shower, broken lamp next to bed, worst of all the bed was hard as a rock. We never slept in something like that. Sad because every thing else about the room would be good.

I've been to this hotel two summers in a row. Indoor pool is so nice and so close to the beach. Its right outside your door. Montauk is just a short drive, and its close enough but far enough that you are not subject to hearing all the partying when you head back to your room. I can't say enough. This is a great hotel.

Just stayed here for two nights - my friend was getting married and it was hard to find good value accommodation in the area - this place popped up - it's in a great location - right on the beach which was a nice bonus.
The Hampton Jitney stops literally right by the hotel which is a bonus if you choose to bus over.
I enjoyed my stay and the people were very friendly.

My husband and I were recently married and we were looking for a long weekend getaway as a mini honeymoon. Being from Upstate, NY, I had always been intrigued with the idea of a trip to the Hamptons. We booked a 4 night stay in one of the downstairs rooms that was closer to the ocean.

I am a budget minded traveler, but I wanted to stay someplace close to the ocean. We found this hotel to be one of the more reasonably priced ocean front resorts. We went on one of the last off season weekends, so the rates were relatively low and we lucked out with lovely weather.

The beach in front of the hotel is very nice, it reminded me a lot of the Outer Banks, NC.

I realize that a lot of people from NYC come to this area and do not have access to a car. I think it would be inconvenient to stay here without wheels, but if you have transportation you should be fine as restaurants and a grocery store are not far.

Positives:
The room had a nicely equipped kitchen and lots of supplies. The microwave and fridge came in very handy as we planned to eat breakfast and lunch in to save money. The bed and sheets were very comfortable. The room was cleaned well each day.

Negatives:
I do have to say that our room seemed to be a bit older compared to some of the other rooms we walked by.

Overall we had a very positive experience at this hotel, but wish we had a slightly more modern room. I would have had a hard time paying the peak season rates for the room we stayed in.

Room Tip: Ask for a more renovated room.

Recently stayed at Ocean Vista. Didn't look like much from the highway as we pulled up, but we had a great time! Right on the beach, right near Montauk and Amagansett, and very simple and relaxing. Learned while I was there that all of the units are privately owned, so each one is pretty different. I stayed in 118 and it was great. Don't have anything to compare it to, but it was clean and had everything I could want. Definitely would come back here.

Room Tip: Stayed in room 118. Really clean and nice. Good tv. Slept comfortably. Great bathroom! Don'...

Overall pleased, beautiful private beach, office provides beach chaises & umbrella's & towels but could run short if high occupancy. Would be nice if they also had beach chairs ;) Almost all rooms are privately owned which explains the renovated comments!! Wireless internet did not reach our room & had to walk almost to the office to connect-office accepted my "complaint" well & was concerned for us. Very clean, nice & non-intrusive staff :) Indoor pool nice but operating hours could be extended & area updated; staff was very accommodating to extend pool hours if staff was on site :). Parking could get tight, railroad tie planters placed in worst spots, blocking entrances to lower level rooms especially hauling luggage. Landscape could use help. Tennis court on site, charcoal BBQ's & tables nice for stay in dining, 4 seat tables w/ umbrellas also available outside lower rooms nice touch. Would be great if there was more family activity on the property/beach - bike rentals, volley ball, beach parties, etc. would make it stand out above other sites. NO lifeguard on this private beach-FYI. Our efficiency was well updated with queen bed & futon. Served well for our stay. Web site really needs updating - did not provide adequate info. having me look at other facilities. Maintenance was immediately attended to--a couple of bulbs were out and was changed first thing in the morning. Could hear the people above talking & thumping walking around :O with no problem (they didnt keep us awake). During our stay was a variety of couples, families, friends -- all pleased with the facility. We would definitely go back :).

Room Tip: Ask for renovated rooms Unit 120 was renovated, upper level great ocean views -- for toddlers lower...

This is a simple beach motel. Don't come here expecting any sort of luxury. It feels really simple, and has all the basics -- rooms have mini kitchens, beds, and a TV (maybe a VCR too if you're lucky!). I've stayed here a few times, and each room is basically the same (some feel more recently renovated than others), but the real appeal is that you are a few steps from THE BEACH. The beach has beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas (you must get from the office). You're on the Nepague beach between Amagansett and Montauk. Great value for the Hamptons.
