If your looking for the 4 Seasons, this isn't the property for you. If your looking for peace and tranquility this IS the place for you. It is close to the farms, the charming towns and you can literally throw a stone in the Long Island Sound from your deck. Like to fish? This is your place to go! I found everyone at the front desk - EXTREMELY helpful and knowledgeable despite what other reviews have said. I have been coming to this property since 1980 so I have alot of memories here. That has to say something. They offer a free breakfast in the morning which I did not have but saw other guests walking back after their morning bite.

The cons for me is the colony of spiders that trickle down from the wood above at night..I am not a bug person AT ALL and very much afraid so I was constantly looking up. This kind of freaked me out. Again, you are on the water, anything is possible. I was surprised to not see any bugs inside until the last night. This big black thing that could of been a cockroach, i don't know, ran out from under bed and when we tried to kill it, it was jumping at us. Yeah that was fun. If you can get through the spiders out on deck, and the occasional bug inside and the outdated property - Then you will love this place. This is a place to make memories... I posted a few pics as well.. Enjoy!

Room Tip: 2 1/2 room is way to go!!

Waking to a Monday departure and knowing it's ALL OVER, until next time.
This property is exactly as it represents itself on line, from photos to narrative. It is a motel, with the best beachside location you will find on the North Fork. Yes the decor is dated but the rooms offers sufficient creature comfort and facilities to allow for a most relaxing time. Waking up exactly where you want to be, grabing a coffee and light breakfast in the lobby, spending the day on the deck or beach, strolling over to the restaurant for lunch, sundowners or dinner, who needs more on a short break from the city? And if you do, Greenport is minutes away with a good variety of shops and ample foodie opportunities. Staff was most accommodating and professional. The other guests we met were mostly on return trips, which says it all !

Room Tip: If you want more privacy and newer rooms, go for the 1.5 bedroom or full apartment set ups.

My sister-in-law and I were looking for a basic, clean and affordable place with a water view in the North Fork area of Long Island. We found it all at this establishment, located right on Long Island Sound. Very scenic! The sounds of waves lapping against the rocks and shoreline just lull you into blissful sleep! It is the perfect motel from which to explore wine country, bountiful farm stands, Shelter Island (ferry is only minutes away) and the Hamptons. The office staff was friendly and informative and met our needs. Highly recommended!

They could careless & act like they're doing you a favor by letting you stay, what attitudes! Would not accommodate us to check in a little earlier, had to be 3:01! Check in is 3. Really rude. Never gave any info about the place & missed out on the all of the breakfast (drove to get coffee & eats). Found out about it when checking out. And at these prices, disappointing!

I loved it. Room was clean, had everything u needed. I was in a handicapped room which was excellent. The bathroom was fantastic, sooo much room. the view was spectacular and nice and quiet. soudns of the waves coming through the windows at night was amazing. Remember its an Inn. the pool was immaculate and huge. the only thing was the main road is right there and the sounds of the cars was annoying sometimes. but as the hours wane down the cars disappear. Definetly would go back. wish I had known sooner about this place. Overall great experience and staff very friendly.

Room Tip: All room face the Long island Sound and its magnificant. Oh and the deck outside is sooo cute. you s...

I was amazed with so many different and conflicting reviews about this place. Only after staying one can understand what happens. As a family small summer business, I thought that it was a fair deal. If you remind yourself that you are not going to a fancy Ritz Carlton, it is easy to understand why I chose to give this place a 4-star review: great restaurant, outstanding views of the sea, beach on the back door of your room, nice swimming pool, small distance to Greenport and to great vineyards (do not miss Sparkling Pointe). Some rooms may be old - but as a family business, they keep the hospitality traditions too; there is noise from the road - but beautiful views of the sea on the back (we just turned on the air conditioner and heard nothing). For the price and location, it is a wonderful deal!

Room Tip: There are more expensive rooms which are farther from the noise of the road.

While it's true that the rooms are very basic you really can't get a better view or location. The staff was very courteous and friendly and the property and rooms are clean even if a little outdated. Continental breakfast was a good start to the day and the staff was very helpful in terms of suggestions for things to do in the area. It was extremely pleasant to sit outside on the deck and have coffee and drinks with the wonderful ocean view. We enjoyed some lovely sunsets and our interaction with the other guests was very pleasant. We did not take advantage of the pool on this trip but we fully intend to visit again. The location is very convenient, only 5 minutes from town in one direction and vineyards in the other. The restaurant on site was very good, they have a nice variety of dishes and specialty cocktails and of course some great local wines as well as an amazing ocean view.
