Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We spent a long weekend in Montauk during the winter (snow+beach=awesome) and we stayed at the Albatross. Even before we got there, we were impressed with the personal service. We researched the motel before we went and saw that it's family owned and run, so we were not surprised, but it's still nice to see. I booked our rooms online...

I am glad that in spite of some ups and downs, your stay turned out to be favorable. Montauk has a way of making you over look imperfections when you are enjoying nature and our beautiful town. Watch our website for seasonal specials and come back again !

We went to Montauk for Valentine's day and despite the cold, we had a great time exploring the natural wonders . Fifi at the front desk was as nice as can be, and set us up with a vintage VHS to watch while we made dinner in the kitchen.

We love Montauk in the winter too. The beaches are so serene and the trails are never crowded. Hope you found an old favorite to watch while you cooked. Home away from home. Come back again !

Our guests are an extension of family here at the Albatross . We like to take care of everyone. Being caught in bad weather unexpectedly is no fun especially in a strange place. Great that we could be of help. Please return for a sunny Montauk getaway !

I brought a group here on a winter tour of Montauk, and everyone was happy. The rooms have individual heaters and a microwave, fridge, and coffee maker, which is nice, and were clean. Also, you can't beat the location a block from the beach! Friendly, helpful staff too. Great spot.

Montauk is a quiet peaceful place in the winter. The beaches and the trails are the main attractions at this time of year. The Lighthouse will reopen in March, but there are still plenty of trails in that area- you may even come across the seals at low tide on a sunny day warming up on the rocks. Please don't...

Our return visit to Daunt's Albatross Motel lived up to our memories of our previous one. With prior approval from the owner, we were permitted to bring our gentlemanly mini-dachshund with us, which is not always possible at deluxe resorts like this one. Our room was perfect, and the property is within walking distance to just about everything--restaurants, shops, the...

Definitely call us if you plan to bring your pet. We have only 3 pet friendly rooms and the room you mentioned is available with a pet on a very limited basis. Come to Montauk and park your car for a couple of days and wander around town and explore the beach. Come back soon !

Not going to write pages and pages. This was a great place. The rooms were very clean, and my standards are high. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating. We stayed for a weekend getaway, and had no regrets.
