The Montauk Beach House
What We Love
- Free daily continental breakfast, WiFi and self parking
- Heart-of-the-action location in downtown Montauk just a block from the beach and Atlantic Ocean
- Staying steps from the pool scene; guests have access to the 60 cabana beds, 2 small pools, daily grill and outdoor bar
- Weekend party place: DJ events, Sunday parties, pop up galleries, fashion shows and more
What To Know
- This destination is more of a lively social spot than a quiet beach escape
- Pets are not permitted
- Whitewater Garden Rooms are on the small side and have views of a public parking lot, so it's worth splurging on a higher room category
- All Double Queen Rooms accommodate up to four people
- Free WiFi
- Handicap Accessible
- Parking On Site
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.
How to Get There
This boutique hotel was exactly what we expected for our last minute planned getaway. The staff was very welcoming , informative, and friendly. Loved the trendy vibe great music always playing. The fire pits were perfect for when we returned from dinner , had so much fun riding the bikes around town. Would definitely stay here again .
We loved visiting the Hamptons! The towns are so cute! We ate and drank our way to Montauk! We stopped at every bakery and winery on the way. The Lighthouse was worth going out to see. We wish were on the beach!
Its pretty basic motel style with tiny shower and toilet with no room to put clothes or toiletries. Pool area good. Very expensive for what you get. Dj was playing by the pool. Way too loud. Next time I’ll stay around hamptons I think
