Reviewed 11 October 2013

Good food. Great drinks. If you have kids, come early on Wednesdays for the family-friendly live music. If you like a scene, come later and you will feel like you're at one of the hottest clubs in New York City.

There was alot good and bad at this hotel. I like to be positive so i'll start with the good.

The good - staff was friendly and helpful. I complained about the noise the morning after our first night there and the receptionst must of talked to our neighbours in the rooms beside us because there was no noise the following night. The resturant Byron had really yummy food and drinks. The bar looked like alot of fun however we didnt stay at the bar for drinks. The rooms are stylish and bed comfortable. Complimentary breakfast of fruit, granola, yogurt, croissants, bagels and juice was great!

The bad - our first night there our neighbours played loud music until 3am. It didnt seem like there was staff on site after the bar closes so there is no accountability for loud guests acting up. Altho we did complain the next day and the noise improved alot the next night. The walls are quite thin so you can hear people coming and going. The rooms are stylish but cheaply designed.

It was an ok stay but i recommend people stay here who like to have a fun time and drink alot. I was pregnant duing our stay and wanted a relaxing time at the Hamptons so I think I would have preferred somewhere more quiet.

We started at the surf lodge tonight by having a cocktail and watching the sunset. Stunning!!!
We then had dinner . I have to say that the service was very unprofessional . We ordered two fish specials but only one was delivered , and no one came to check our table. Ultimately we were happy to have received only one fish because it was tasteless and full of bones.
For the people who think that the food here is fabulous, I would only say that they have no clue about food and dining..
My advise for anyone who wants to go visit this establishment , have a drink or two, watch the sunset and go somewhere else for dinner.

Fantastic!! The hotel is so well designed, airy and beautiful. We had a great stay and would recommend it to anyone. Room 21 is the best!! Slept like a baby after a fun dinner in the restaurant! The owners are clearly very focused on the hospitality and it reflects on the hotel and staff well!

My friend recommended staying here and was worth it!
1. Montauk is Beautiful! Can't believe it is part of New York State!
2. Surf Lodge has a bit of a fun scene - attractive clientele and gorgeous interiors. Has a fun, beachy / surf / Americana vibe to it - very cool yet classy.
3. The Rooms - Beautiful View, Nice, Light & Airy Interiors with nice amenities - bikes and paddle boarding.
4. Sunset Cocktails & Live Music - THE BEST - don't know who the band where but was a great night to sit back and relax!
6. Breakfast in the morning needs some work and room service would be good too.
Overall - very good place to stay.

Run down! Not very clean. Staff not knowledge of the area or information they should share when booking the hotel..like there is no food service on Tuesdays. They charged us $50 for a blow up mattress..but never told us we should bring our own linens. The mattress did not staff inflated for the night. The hotel staff not on premises after 8:30 pm. They stated kid friendly but we didn't think so. we went with a 12 year old and 8 year old. Don't waste your $$ The best thing was the sunset view.

What an amazing hotel and restaurant, the rooms are so nice and the food is EXACTLY what you want by the beach. This place is so well run, they do such an amazing job considering its popularity. Hospitality running at its best.
Paddle board across Fort pond in the afternoon and relax with a cocktail while watching the sun set and listening to the live bands and DJs they curate.
Over past years I have come and seen The Kills and Willie Nelson to name a couple... I'm now looking forward to seeing Donovan tomorrow!! Surf Lodge has always stepped up their game what else could you want!!?

Room Tip: Swim in the pond for lack of a pool and grab a paddle board to exercise! It's the beach life!
