We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at Daunt's Albatross Motel. Our favorite things: the very nice people, the cozy beach vacation style room, and the outdoor spaces with grills and bikes for guests to use, amazing location right next to a beautiful beach, great price. Some tips for your stay: check out the Dock restaurant and the Montauk Bake...

You hit the nail on the head visiting some of our favorite spots as locals! Late spring is a great time to visit Montauk . The weather can be perfect and most places are open for the season. We have a fleet of new bikes, our grills are fired up and the pool opens tomorrow. Welcome Spring/Summer 2017

Pet friendly motel but even my 10lb Yorkie felt cramped in the tiny room. Room was small and in need of an upgrade. Tape was holding the bathroom mirror together. We paid for four nights and left after one night. Took the loss and rebooked someplace else.The walls are very thin and the conversation and TV could be heard well...

That all sounds wonderful! Especially the espresso. Many friendships have been found here at the Albatross, some that only see each other on their yearly vacations here. Watch our website for seasonal specials and please come back to Montauk again .

The Albatross is very clean and the staff could not be nicer. The motel is a bit dated which makes it perfect with children. The balcony had a view of the beach and is very safe for children. Very close to beach and town. Highly recommend the kitchenette rooms. My son really appreciated the free bicycles available as we had...

The Motel was clean, the hosts and staff were friendly and accommodating and the location is great. Motel is near all. This is a standard motel but the staff and services (yoga studio attached) are great! Would highly recommend for a nice little get away.

Were you able to attend a yoga or boxing class during your stay? The rates are very reasonable. Afterwards, just run back to your room to shower ! We like to be know as a friendly, clean family spot. Please visit again soon.

Seriously couldn't have asked for a crappier long weekend away. We left the city for peace and quiet -- and we got just the opposite. Where to start? This place is "rustic." Dated. Warn at the extremely frayed edges, to say the least. The heat and a/c unit, and the shower, and the fridge in unison sounded like a busy...

I like the way the staff listens to us. I asked that my room not be sprayed with air freshener, and they were very careful to make sure the room was not sprayed with the air freshener. Daunt`s Albatross is professionally managed. It has certain charm as well.

Off season is a great time when we can spend a few extra minutes chatting with our guests. It's a beautiful time in Montauk before the crowds arrive and the weather is just starting to turn. Please visit us again !

It is 4am and I haven't slept at all. If this is the second highest rated place in Montauk I can't imagine what highclass fleabag place is number 1. The rooms are smaller than NYC. Very rundown. There are connecting doors to each room with large cracks between them that you can see into the other guests rooms. I had...
