The Montauk Beach House
What We Love
- Free daily continental breakfast, WiFi and self parking

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
Our stay here was wonderful. The hotel is located a block from the beach and in walking distance to restaurants, ice cream and cafes. The rooms are set up around a courtyard with two pools with plenty of loungers, fire pits and a bar/ grill. The pool area is very beautiful and private. Music playing throughout the pool area gives it a festive feel. It rained our second day there. Unfortunately there is not much to do in Montauk when it rains. The covered fire pit area with couches gave us a wonderful place to sit outside and read enjoying music and cocktails. The music and the bar close at 8ish. The pool area is lit up beautiful after dark. Get yourself a bottle of wine from the liquor store a block away and sit by the pool or by the fire pits and relax after dinner. The staff is great and helpful. The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. The bed is comfortable. My only comment is that I was hoping when we returned home from dinner the fire pits would have been lit. We didn’t check to see if we could get them lit because we opted to turn in for the night.
Nice place,very attentive staff ,shower in room is ridiculously small they really need to expand size of shower , bar prices were very pricey,overall they should drop the price for room rates also pricey
Great experience. Very Friendly staff, rooms are very clean and Modern. Really great stay. Easy walk to all the restaurants in town and shopping. Beach is only one block away. Heated pools, pool side bar and continental breakfast served daily until 11am I believe
I was not well received. reception was not warm the person barely looked at me. I requested an iron and that ruined my pants. they gave me a compimentary wifi but that didnt work. overall it was just ok.
