Summer party pad in downtown Montauk, with a lively poolside scene, eco-mod style and easy beach access

The Lowdown

In downtown Montauk, a block from the Atlantic Ocean and prime surf beaches, this 33-room summer pad is primed for alfresco parties and poolside posing. Unabashed in its celebration of the summer scene, the three two-story accommodation blocks are set around the busy public spaces so you’re never out of ear shot of the daytime action and DJ sets. Guest rooms have a handsome, hipster style that’s straight from a Restoration Hardware catalogue, with gun metal grays and whites on the board and batten walls, brass anglepoise lamps, Edison bulbs and subway-tiled bathrooms. Whitewater Garden Rooms are the smallest at a petite 150 square feet, but all have private decks and day beds overlooking the street; larger Moonlight guest rooms sleep four in two Queen beds and have clawfoot tubs. Start the day with a cup of artisan coffee and a fresh croissant from the No. 50 Cafe, then make the one-block walk to the beach or claim a cabana beside the hotel’s two small pools. A light-bites snack menu (lobster rolls, paninis, and more) is served poolside, and the outdoor grill dishes up burgers with all the fixings. The music kicks off at 1 pm and keeps going until sundown, but the rare in-town location means Montauk’s best bars and restaurants are within walking distance.

In the Area

Head into town for blowout breakfast wraps and thick waffles at local fave Joni’s. Get some daytime exertion with a surf lesson from Corey’s Wave or Air and Speed at Ditch Plains Beach, then refuel with a pressed sandwich or healthy salad from the summer staple food truck, Ditch Witch (open until 4 p.m.). Head to Surf Lodge by late afternoon for a Montauket Storm cocktail and killer sunset views, or take your own tipple to Duryea’s Lobster Deck and dine alfresco on fresh mussels, clams, lobster rolls and more.

This "Beach House" is really a revamped motel. They did a good job of it, but it is a motel nonetheless. Montauk probably has zoning ordinances regarding hotels in this area. The staff were very nice and accommodating. The breakfast was good and the coffee excellent. My son enjoyed the pool. The room was small, but in their defense, real estate is at a premium in Montauk. The balcony was also small but very nice. My main issue is the way the room smelled from mold. I think this is almost unavoidable as it is a block away from the beach. All in all it is quite expensive for what it is, but isn't that the way in Montauk?

Great Hotel. Great Staff. Great Locations

My group of 10 had a truly fantastic stay at The MBH. Rooms are immaculate as are the grounds. The bar and outdoor lounge with fire pits were wonderful, the hanging bistro lights are a great touch. The staff is fantastic starting with Adriana and Dora.
The continental breakfast is top notch - starting with the fantastic coffee.

In short, an absolute gem. And it is right in town so need to drive or grab an Uber.

We'll be back. Keep it up MBH - the little details are appreciated by discerning travelers.


Switched to this hotel thank god

The rooms were beautiful and smelt amazing upon arrival . Definetly will be returning !we actually checked into another hotel when we got theRe for our “mini-moon” and weren’t happy . A bartender at montauk brewery recommended montauk beach house and we went right over and checked in and couldn’t be happier !

Did we miss something?

We found this place to be quite odd! This is really not a conventional hotel as we know anyway. The rooms are “styled” but not really for guest comfort. There is a huge window which has opaque glass, which makes it feel very closed in. Bathroom is very small with basin and bath in the bedroom, Breakfast if you could call it that was very disappointing. Served in the reception area where there really is nowhere to sit? It is laid out on a table, bagels, pain au chocolate, cereal, strawberries, juice. Seemed like it was freezer to table! Coffee in flasks, as was the hot water. Everything disposable which then went into the trash? Not at all enjoyable.There are two pools. We used the sun beds by one but the music?? was loud and awful. They seemed set on asking you to purchase their food and drink, notices everywhere saying you couldn’t bring your own in. Location is well back from the beach but walkable to the Main Street and shops restaurants etc.In summary for us was not worth the money we paid,
