The Drake Inn is a very nice hotel. My wife and I brought our six-year-old daughter there for a weekend and everything was top notch. Our room was newly renovated (I think all the rooms have been newly renovated). The furnishings are modern, the design is very well thought out and everything was clean and well-maintained. The staff was very...

The room was very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. In the morning they brought us wonderful, warm muffins and croissants. We had a lovely experience and we are glad to recommend the Drake Inn! We would definitely go back.

Renovated within the last year with modern finishes; clean, quiet & reasonably priced. Close to excellent beaches, entertainment & restaurants. Hampton Bays is less pretentious and more laid back than South Hampton. You can even dock your boat here. They bring good quality croissant & muffins right to your room in the morning. Nice areas onsite to enjoy. Coffee machine,...

The Drake Inn is located on a beautiful property in Hampton Bays. The cottage style rooms are designed with both comfort and luxury, but still have a cozy feeling to them. The family friendly Inn boasts a relaxing pool area as well as a dock for boats where you can stargaze at night. My friends and I had a great...

The rooms are phenomenal and have almost everything you could need during a week or two away. In addition, the service is incredible as every employee was willing to help or provide anything needed all the time. One of the best features of this hotel is the magnificent view of the water in the back. This place is perfect for...

My husband said shhh don't write a review because now everyone will pack this beautiful place. The first thing, customer service. Patrick in the office was outstanding. Every question answered and trust me I asked a lot after being burned somewhere else out here. The property is so well kept, landscaping, flowers blooming, clean, peaceful. The pool is perfect.

This was our third stay at the Drake Inn, and it only gets better! Every morning began with fresh pastries delivered to our room where we prepared our own gourmet coffee - everything supplied. The amenities and service are wonderful. The pool is beautiful (all day sun on the pool). A small beach is a beautiful 200-yd walk away, and...

Very nice and clean place, the staff are very friendly. They gave us a ride to the beach and even though the shuttle only works until 5pm they picked us up at the beach at 5:45 pm, what a great service. In the morning fresh croissants and muffins, a Keurig machine to make coffee as well. Only stayed for one...

We rented a 2 bedroom cottage for a family with a child. It was beautiful, quiet and in a great location. There is a pool and free parking. The service was excellent too. I would definitely stay here again.

“Check for spiders/ nettles which is easy given white floors and walls. They are an inevitable part of any Cottage experience. I think perhaps screen door might help eliminate. We did one quick swoop and we're done for 24hrs. ”

“Stayed in room facing the pool. Don't think it's necessary to request Canal view, as the only view would be out the small window & you have access to the grass area along the canal where they have lounge chairs set up. Used this area in the morning to have coffee & read. Very relaxing.”
