Post Thanksgiving get-a-way with friends at Daunt's Albatross was just what the doctor ordered! Hotel Staff was friendly and accommodating. Our room was very clean and the proximity to town added to the stay. The big plus was the fact that during a holiday weekend, we were able to book one night only with no issue. Thanks for a great...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 August 2016

The best vacation!! I look forward to this every year. Most places are either on the beach, or they are so upscale that you could go broke. Why would I pay all that money for a room that I am only going to sleep in. Besides, the beach is literally 100 feet away from any room that I've ever stayed...

Front desk agent was friendly and welcoming. Room was very clean, updated bedding, TV, and heating/air conditioning. Bathroom very small, could use more counter space. Overall, very goid experience. For the off season, price was fair. Very close to ocean and shops.

Some Montauk motels are skimpy at best-the owners put little effort and money back into their businesses. Not at Daunt's Albatross. The rooms are new and modern, their is a nice courtyard with tables and a BBQ, the staff is very friendly making it one of the best hotels in Montauk. The rooms are not large (which is standard for...

We are a hands on family run motel and we are glad that it shows. We are constantly working on upkeep and up grades, more rooms to be done in the future. If you are in the area over the holidays, be sure to come in to see our Christmas Village. The platform just went up to begin work !

Attending my nieces wedding. It was a good location. Everything we needed. Rode the double bicycle to the harbor. It was a good work out. Would like the same next year. I even cooked breakfast 2 times. Thank you

Sounds like you had a great weekend. I agree, that tandem bike is a good workout and a good exercise in working together. Montauk has become a great destination wedding location during fall weekends. Be sure to book as soon as you know your dates next year and always look for specials on our website.

I had an amazing stay at Daunt's Albatross! The room was big and had a very nice interior, I loved the style, and it was immaculately clean. The personnel here was also the sweetest ever, and the location was just great, very close to the beach and the town center.

We needed a place for our whole family which includes 2 dogs and a toddler and this was perfect. Friendly staff, clean rooms, great location. Just a short walk to the beach and around town. We will definitely return!

I've mentioned it before, that many guests started out here as kids, 30 or so years ago, and they are now returning with their kids ! Maybe that will be your case too. See you soon.

Leaking window, broken window blinds, filthy carpet and a refrigerator that didn't work. Not worth anything near the $190 they charged me. Extremely disappointed. There was a time when they were a good deal but it seems they've let the place get away from them.

You certainly can walk to everything in town and never use your car. From the Hampton Jitney Bus stop, you can see our sign and the LIRR is about a mile an a half away away. Sorry about your fridge. They sometimes get unplugged for housekeeping to do a thorough cleaning. Be sure to check with our front desk if...
