My buddies and I had a memorable time at The Drake Inn in the summer of 2012 and we made a plan to return this summer 2013. Well to our surprise it has been wonderfully renovated. Every little thing in the room is brand new! Clean, bright, comfortable, and convenient. The most relaxing rest I've had in months. Brand new outdoor lounge furniture/umbrellas as well! Perfect by the pool or towards the back by the docks and water. Well lit at night for a quick stroll or breakfast & coffee by the water. Did I mention easy access Wi-Fi?
The staff was super friendly and accommodating. We liked them so much we even invited them to join our barbeque! Yet another perk are the brand new personal charcoal barbeques and plentiful picnic tables for out door dining with your family and friends. Certainly appreciated the fresh fruit & bakery items to our door each morning with a smile. When we went out, the room was cleaned/beds were made like we were arriving for the first time.
A real diamond in the rough, We were truly thrilled and plan on making it an annual summer tradition to visit and stay at the Drake Inn!

Everything we personally needed was close and available...the beach, the fish market, and a fresh produce shack around the corner. We stayed in an amazing room facing the water. The friendly and helpful staff made our 5 day stay feel at home.

We will back!

Room Tip: Make sure to take a bite of the complimentary morning pastry.

Chose the Drake Inn on the internet from Australia because of reviews on line and were not disappointed. The hospitality and service were exceptional. Nothing was a problem for David and the staff and we felt we had a home away from home. The grounds were beautifully cared for as well. All in all, they worked hard to make our stay memorable. Would definitely return.

While we stayed up front, further back was a bit more cozy, there was an overall relaxed friendly vibe throughout the property, which is located within a quiet residential street not far from Shinnecock Bay and a short drive to the ocean. A simple fruit and snack basket greeted us upon check in, and fresh made zeppoli on the terrace table in the mornings, was an extra nice touch. Rooms have been significantly upgraded under new ownership, with simple stylish functional necessities. The outdoor areas by the pool and especially by the little canal in the rear had comfortable relaxing chaises, umbrella and tabes overlooking a quaint waterway where snapper fishing is possible, along with a lovely sunset for cocktails. Would definitely return and recommend to others if looking for Hampton Bays accommodations.

It's a find. More than a find; a treasure trove. I stayed with a group of eight friends at the Drake Inn and we we're all blown away by the recent renovation and exquisite service. In fact, Dave was the most gracious host I've encountered throughout my years of travel. If you need to spend a weekend in the Hamptons, look no further.
