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 most important thing to us is to keep the family vibe alive in Montauk ! We love our town and want to share it with our guests. So glad you were comfortable during your stay. Come back soon.

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...

Have been coming to Montauk and staying at Daunt's Albatross for over 25 years. This is a family run business. Jim and Leo Daunt treat customers, as if they were family. They and the staff will do almost anything to see that your stay is as pleasant as possible. Rooms have been updated. The grounds are well kept and a...

We work hard to keep things going out here in Montauk ! We have renovated some rooms and the rest have great creature comforts like flat screen TV's and new mattresses. We just received a shipment of beautiful white quilted comforters for all the beds. Thanks for making Daunt's Albatross your "go to" place in Montauk.

I would definitely stay at this motel again. The rooms were clean and spacious. It was also within walking distance of a few restaurants. Staff was courteous and professional, from the time I made the reservation to my checkout time.

There are not many motels open in the dead of winter in Montauk. This is a good place to be stuck if there is a snowstorm ,as you have seen ! Our owner, Jim, monitors the property very carefully during these kind of storms to be sure everyone is safe and happy. Happy Birthday once again !
