We stayed at the Born Free in April and couldn't have been more pleased! The location is amazing - across the beach and across from the Plaza. Our room #20 was on 1st floor and prefect because we had a full beach view and basically private deck. Price was great! Will Def req room 20 at nxt visit!

We loved our stay at the Born Free. We plan on coming back every summer as the family really enjoyed the trip. The walk to the beach was within yards from the motel, and the service was great there! Thanks for an awesome experience. I definitely recommend this motel to anyone wanting to travel to Montauk!

This charming suite was perfectly beachy, comfortable, and inexpensive. Located central on the montauk waterfront strip, 5 minute walk into town and near the Bakery for early AM coffee. The room was clean, beach themed, friendly service. We are a family of 3 with a young child and she just adored this place. Across the street from the ocean, but...

Went for St. Patrick's weekend and had a nice room with seperate living room and small kitchen with table and pull out sofa. The second floor rooms have a deck with great views of the ocean where you can sit and just enjoy the fresh ocean air. The whole place was clean and nicely decorated.

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Born Free motel for our 2 year anniversary. We hadn't been to Montauck before and were just looking to relax in a quiet lazy place and that's what we found when we got to Born Free. The rooms were extremely clean with the cutest decor. We were right across the street from the...

We just got back from the Born Free Motel. I found it to be a nice place to stay. It's just across the road from the beach. There was a stove, fridge, microwave a coffee maker and pots and pans. Bring some groceries with you, they are expensive in Montauk. Everything was nice and clean. I don't know what motel...

we stayed here before and never experienced such an awful room. the room was the color of pepto bismol, the couch sunk when you sat and the bed was like a cardboard box! The shower water trickled down to the point of me not wanting to wash my hair for fear of not knowing if I could get the shampoo...

Each unit in this hotel is owned individually (condos), and our unit was fantastic. It had everything we needed for our short stay, plus games, books, and a kitchen that held the minimal essentials. I would definitely stay again, but I would request our room on the seond floor.

After a harrowing experience at the #4 best-rated hotel on Montauk, my boyfriend and I were just about ready to head home, but we convinced ourselves to venture into Montauk proper and analyze our options there. South Emerson Street runs along the length of the beachfront and is lined on both sides with beachy hotels and motels of all stripes...
