Do yourself a favor and skip this one.We stayed at the east section of this motel. It's old, it smells like mildew and have really really thin walls! Beds are hard and altogether uncomfortable. The only thing that is going for it is the location. We checked out Sole east beach close by and will be staying there next time!

Showed up with wife and two kids and they told me I reserved a one bed room when we specifically asked for an efficiency room. Place scammed us to get us out here then told me I am stuck with this reservation. A room with one bed the size of my kids room. People could care less and said it was our fault. Place sucks and once they got your money you are out of luck.

My boyfriend and i decided to do a quick Friday to Sunday Montauk getaway in the dead of winter. We loved the 70s aesthetic of the Montauk East and were fine with the funky old mattress and kitschy decor.

The first night was terrible because for some reason, even though the motel was fairly quiet, they put us in a room next to four partying 20somethings who were up until 3am, smoking, cursing and making racist jokes. The walls are paper thin, so it was literally like they were smoking, cursing and making racist jokes in our room. Usually I'm the type to flip out on the spot when stuff like that happens but I decided to just keep it cool and try to sleep.

The next morning I went to talk to the guy at the front desk and he apologized and said, "I already kicked them out."

The rest of the stay was delightful. We drove into town and bought a few bottles of wine and some basic provisions and spent the rest of the weekend lying around watching a marathon of all the "Rocky" movies, occasionally venturing out to walk on the beach, which was windy and deserted.

I bet it's a madhouse in the summer, though.

A group of friends and myself recently stayed for a long weekend at The Albatross and had a great time. We booked an off-season package that was listed on their website as $124/pp including 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners. At first we were a little skeptical thinking it might be a shady B&B, however the meals were provided by way of vouchers to a decent number of restaurants right along Montauk's main drag. It is quite possible that after having reviewed the menu of the restaurant vs. the menu given for using vouchers that the value of our meals in total exceeded the cost of staying at the hotel altogether. All of the restaurants were very accomodating and we were only one block from the beach so we barely needed our car. There are BBQ pits in the courtyard that other guests used in the time that we were there, as well as a pool that was too chilly to swim in, and a playground for the kidlets. The room was a little outdated and it smelled kind of moldy, but overall was a great place to stay considering we were out and about taking in Montauk the majority of the day. Bring a can of febreeze and you're set. Great value for a great location/package....I would definitely visit again.

Cheap old motel which expects most of its guest to get drunk and be loud - if that's you, rest assured you won't be bothered or told to calm down unless you start breaking things. Rooms have paper thin walls, so expect to be awake until the crowd passes out around 1am or 2am. Also popular with guys going fishing, so be prepared to hear them leaving around 5am or 6 am. This is the place for you if you expect to drink until your ready to sleep. Rooms look like they did 50 years ago, but with clean sheets - but think the comforter is an original as well as most of the furniture - our's was an effeciency but refrig did not work.

This place is a dump and the staff walking around was nothing short of creepy but so are most places in Montauk. It's the best deal around and steps to both the beach and middle of town. We had friends staying at more expensive places who also complained about their accommodations so, since we were saving hundreds of dollars and having a similar experience, we counted ourselves lucky. I'd consider this place again, although may switch to Born Free Motel next time. Like most places in town, it really depends on the room you get since they are privately owned and each room will be different from the next. Our friend's room had an updated bathroom that was a lot nicer than ours, for instance.
