It's not a resort. The room is not the cleanest or the most up to date appliances. The location is good. Walking distance to the beach and all of down town Montauk. Parking is a problem. I would look else where on my next trip back.

This was my 2nd trip here. My first trip in off season I had a beautiful comfy room. I requested said room from Angel when I booked. Upon check in the room was given to someone else. The room they put us in was dirty & the bed sunk in like a bean bag. I spent my stay sleeping on... More

Stayed here with another couple perfect location central to everything. Some negatives no ice machine no central air and it says a pool on the contract you sign.. no pool !! The pull out sofa is not for humans to slept on so don't count on it, thank god we had an air mattress !

I have rented here for four years in the past. It was kept very clean and it's close to town and the beach. The only drawback was the have limited parking, so if you get a spot don't leave unless you are walking. Most restaurants, shops and church were in walking distance. It's quiet and you can bbq or cook.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in an upper level room and were able to see the ocean (not sure if all upper level rooms would have this luxury). There was a lovely living room area with a sofa (had a pull out bed), table with chairs, full refrigerator and... More

Charming motel located across the street from the beach and one block from Main Street in Montauk. Great option for a low-key weekend and within walking distance to stores, restaurants. I love that the rooms are suites which allows you to have a living area and a bedroom area with TV's in both. Some rooms are equipped with kitchens so... More

This looks shabby from the outside but inside the rooms are efficiencies with living room kitchen and bedroom. Our unit was lovely and from the deck you could see the ocean. Location is best walk to town and beach. Only downside is they allow noisy guests to sit on deck and drink and talk into wee hours. Bring earplugs.

My mom and I stayed at Born Free for 1 night back in April so we could spend some time in Montauk together. Overall the motel was great! We were initially put into a room next to a smoker, but the friendly woman in the office moved us to another room right away. The room was clean & simple, reasonably... More

We stayed for 2 nights and were very pleased with the condition and cleanliness of the unit. Location is ideal for beach access and walking into town. We didn't cook any meals there but kitchen was well equipped. We would definitely stay there again.
