Ocean View Terrace Motel

Reviewed 6 August 2012

I just got back from my holidays and gotta write a review for the Ocean View. Penny, thanks for the warm reception and for looking after me.
The property is indeed well located, lovely view of the bay, nice pool, which is not busy at all, I for one also opted for the beach. I just read a recent review and someone mention the rooms are small? Really, where??? At least my room 109 was specious enough there were 2 queen beds and still a lot of room to move around. It's not a luxurious hotel, but for the picture you can see that, but it's clean and I felt safe. For the gentleman that mention moths and bugs...really? What do expect when you are in a place by the sea with so much green around like the Hamptons?
I did not see any bugs, but I kept my door closed.
The hotel is about 4 miles from the village and it is so convenient, on saturday I took a taxi to the village as I wanted to drink and it's US$ 25...money well spent...
I will for sure return to the Hamptons and if staying in Southampton I will no doubt chose the Ocean View Terrace.... it's a enjoyable stay and I did stay 7 nights there.
Again, thanks Penny .

Just finished a wonderful stay at the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean with views either on the large garden or over onto to the beautiful bay. This hotel was a pleasure to have stayed in, a relaxing break from the big city. Definitely a must-go, and when we come again Ocean View Terrace is where we're booking :)

If you are looking for caviar dreams in the Hamptons -- this isn't it. But for a very well-run, clean and enjoyable motel near beaches, restaurants and marinas, then this will nicely fill the bill. The proprietress, Penny, is an unstoppable bundle of energy-- overseeing every detail of the motel and her attention to detail shows. The rooms are clean and the property is beautifully landscaped with a pleasant pool that overlooks the Bay if you look past Montauk Highway! The rooms are not cheap but for the Hamptons, they are on the affordable side. We have stayed in the 2 room suite (112)which has its own nice private deck -- perfect for families or a girls' weekend -- and a room overlooking the pool (115)which has the best view. All in all it is a great choice if you do not yet have your own piece of Hampton Hedge.

Not sure why this place has such good reviews. There were moths, beetles and other strange bugs in the place.The light in the bathroom didn't work and i was told to "flick the switch" ...really? No coffee maker but room is so tiny even if they had one I have no idea where they would put it. Been going to this area for 15 years and always stayed at the much superior "Bowens on the the Bays." We thought we would change it up a bit but very disappointed. Never again and by the way the view of the water that "every room has" is across the street from the hotel blocked by the owners house. I have never written a review of a hotel before but i just had to after this fiasco that cost me a crazy amount of money for a bug infested place.

I am amazed that this gentleman has written such a review of the Ocean View Terrace. We have a beautiful view of Shinnecock Bay as the property is terraced and even though there are houses on the south side of the road the view is open and the breeze from the open bay is delicious. As far as beetles and moths, all of us know better than to leave the room door open with the lights on.
Mr. G. booked on line and did not choose a kitchenette with all the amenities including a coffee pot. His room did come equipped with counter-height fridge, hair dryer, iron and ironing board and all amenities you will find currently in all quality hotels. However, there was plenty of coffee, juice, muffins or bagels and crumb cake served in the office every morning at 8:30 AM. If he needed in-room coffee all he had to do was ask and a coffee pot would have been brought to his room. As the pictures of our rooms were taken just this June as well as the layout of the Motel on video 360 tour, we look just as you see us on the web. This property does not have cottages as does the motel that Mr. G. mentioned. We have standard rooms and suites.

Mr. G. also neglected to mention, that we bend backwards to service our guests, as he called me from the house phone to open his door at 1:30 in the morning because he and his friend were drinking at the Boardy Barn and he lost his key.

My wife, her sister and I needed to escape the 100 degree weather in Manhattan last weekend. We rented the 2 bedroom suite with a living room and terrace looking out to the bay.It was very nicely furnished, immaculately clean, flat screen TV's plus microwave and fridge. Penny and Angela are a joy. Penny even lent us a lobster cracker for our delightful dinner on the terrace.
You will not go wrong staying here. We will be going back.

Husband and I stayed over Fourth of July wknd and it was wonderful! We had the king bdrm suite over looking the pool and bay; amazing view w a pretty good size balcony and very private. The room and resort Are very clean and the staff are so friendly and acommodating, Penny went above and beyond to ensure our stay was a pleasant one! The location is absolutely perfect! Its right on the border of bays and southampton so you have access to the more laidback bays attractions and a short drive to the upscale nightlife and restaurants of southampton w/out having to travel too far.

My favorites were: the pool (clean and big), the gorgeous view of the bay coupled w our fabulous balcony, cleanliness, bbq grills spread out all over for your cooking convenience, our comfy king size bed and the ice machine w never ending ICE (it was a hot one, 90 degrees that wknd).

We truly cannot wait to return, which hopefully will be as soon as mid August!

Thank you to Penny and Angela for alll your kindness and thanku OVT for making our 4th of 2012 a memorable getaway!

This is one of the best motels I have ever stayed at. The rooms are very tidy and have flat screen plasma tv's. The pool was perfect sized. The owner was very accommodating. She let my friends and me use her own private sun deck upon checkout. The view is stunning as it was right on the water.

I would definitely recommend it.
