Great place to stay! It is in nice quiet location and close to vineyards. Sue the manager is so friendly and accommodating.The rooms are nice although they could really use a renovation, which I think the owners are planning on doing. All of the rooms are steps from the beach. The beach is a nice size and very clean. We...

The combination of beachfront and accessibility to wine country is unreal. Once you're out on your balcony it's hard to believe you're not at a beach resort. The views are AMAZING. Clean beach, great shelling, clear waters. Rooms themselves are adequate and nicely stocked. Bedroom was very small (2 queen beds). Bathroom needs new toilets. The suite was clean, large...

This place is amazing! I've gone paddleboarding there with friends a bunch of times this summer. It's truly the best spot on the NoFo for a nice little getaway with fun activites and amazing restaurants around the corner. The beach has million dollar sunset views and the service is always excellent! Thanks Sue! ☺

We needed some peace and quiet and to escape the blistering heat of NYC. We were fortunate to find an available room at the last minute, and were whisked away to this quaint hotel on the water. The staff is extremely helpful and friendly, and provide a truly local experience. The beach is nice and clean, and just a few...

I have been here a couple of other times and each time it gets better and better. In the past I thought that the decor was tacky but it has been improved and is really quite lovely. The location is still wonderful with their own beach. Susan, the manager, is very helpful with directions, things to see and places to...

A very nice and relaxing place to stay close to all of the great family activities on the North Fork, right on the water with a little beach and great view. Staff was great as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. The family who owns it was very nice as well.

Jamesport suites is a great place to stay to enjoy everything that the North (and South) fork has to offer. The vineyards are close by and Riverhead is a short drive, with Southampton just a little further. The hotel is quite basic, but the rooms are large and the aircon works brilliantly - but you come here for the peace...

I had been coming to the motel for over 30 years as it is (was) a great off season place for a getaway. Last year, the ownership changes and I will never go back for the following reasons: we were charged for a "newly renovated room" and were in one that was not yet renovated, which really wasn't a problem...
