I paid 1K for three nights but my room was not cleaned second day, I had to go to office to get clean towels and had to take my room garbage out! The reason I pay for hotel is to get service and enjoy my vacation, not to take my garbage out and try to find clean towels.

Can't say enough of our two-day stay at the Ocean View Terrace Motel! First impressions mean everything to me and, upon arrival, found an exceptionally clean room, clean bathroom, clean fridge and kitchenette and did I mention a most comfortable mattress and bedding? Thank you Penny and staff for our mini va-cay girls' weekend of three generations! We look forward... More

We stayed in the two bedroom suite. The room was very neat and clean. Kitchenette was nice to have in the morning so that we did not need to go out for breakfast. We really enjoyed the deck that was off one of the bedrooms. I wish we had been able to stay more than just one night but we... More

This was a lovely place with spacious rooms and gorgeous views of the ocean from our balcony. Room was spacious and clean. The manager (owner?) Penny went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and we cannot thank her enough. Lots of yummy spots to eat less than 10 minutes away. Excellent getaway spot, we will be back... More

After a late afternoon ferry ride from CT, we scrambled to find a place to stay nearby and drove the extra miles to get to this place. And what a location it was. Nested in trees just a stone throw from the ocean. Room was very clean with comfy double beds and large TV. Bath was also spotless and of... More

When our flight out of LGA was delayed, we decided to make the most of it and venture out onto Long Island. We should have thought about booking accommodations for the night earlier, but were lucky to find Ocean View Terrace. It was clean, well-located, and the management was very good.

Ok place to stay but rooms are small for families. Also, the cheapest nastiest towels, very poor quality and tiny, why not fork out for some real bath towels when charging $280 a night ? Nice pool and clean rooms, just not great value for money

Helpful and very gentle owner, clean rooms, possibility for Barbecue in front of the rooms, relatively calm in respect that the main road is directly passing by. We've been there with 2 adults and 2 girls and had a relaxing time, even if we had lots of luggage with us for that one room. The Beach is close, the Rumba... More

We ended up staying in the smaller room as well as a night in the suite. The rooms are clean, the pool is amazing, the view is great, and the owner and staff are wonderful. We got there after the pool closed and without us even saying anything they opened it up for an extra hour for us to go... More

I stayed here before the season actually started. I was the 1st to use the room for the season. THE PRICE WAS GREAT!! It was decent because it was clean and I really liked having the kitchen for leftovers. The owner was very accommodating. I would return.
