I should have known when they were the only available hotel in the area for the weekend. I also should have known based on my first phone conversation and the abrupt manner in which I was spoken to. I also should have known when they said 3 night minimum, ok we will let you stay for 2 and then reduced the price. So buyer beware. Tennis courts are dilapidated and unable to be played on. Bathroom shower non existent lucky if its 2x2 feet and shower curtain, beige plastic liner! Pool towels that are provided are threadbare and the size of a hand towel. Beach passes? Be specific and ask for where as they only allow you access to one beach in the area and then you can drive out to Amagansett!
Ask for a possible late check out not even a moment's pause the immediate response "we're fully booked photo shoot coming in" guess what hours later, the parking lot was still empty! Assuming that they owners must be brothers...not nice, not customer service oriented whatsoever. It's a shame a true shame and such a poor reflection on the community out there. I have never had such an awful interaction with a hotel manager whether staying in a high end luxury or moderate accommodations. Give any other hotel out there a chance, PASS on Wainscott Inn.
