We stayed one night while attending an event in nearby East Hampton. Ocean Vista, while not a luxury resort, was well maintained and our room was very clean. Rates were reasonable for the area. Front desk/office was staffed with personable, friendly people, and they made us feel right at home.

Available indoor pool and tennis court, but (other than the staff) the real star of the show is the easy beach access! Follow a short boardwalk and there you are! Lounge chairs and towels are available as well as beach umbrellas for some shade.

Breakfast? Goldberg's Bagels and coffee right across the road, and there are tables and chairs outside your room. Or grab a Keurig right in the office and then take a 10 minute ride to Montauk town for pancakes. (Hint: Take the 'old' road to town for some beautiful views)

One thing: I'd recommend a 2nd floor room if you have the choice. Our upstairs neighbors got up EARLY (5:30AM) and repeatedly woke us walking back & forth.

All in all we recommend Ocean Vista and will return:)

Room Tip: Second floor if you want to sleep a bit later in the morning

This is a great little motor-inn style hotel with individually owned coops for rent. Ours was newly-renovated and completely charming. We were near the beach and had a nice kitchen to cook a casual dinner in. There is tennis and a pool as well. Affordable as far as the Hamptons go and very convenient and relaxed.

Stayed: August 2017

I've been a guest at Ocean Vista about 5 times always waiting for the post Labor Day season. The motel style resort is dwarfed by the more updated neighboring property, but holds its own as a peaceful destination due to its location on the beach and its great deals for early and late season rates. The rooms have a nice feel, by no means luxury or fancy, but rather friendly and modest. I did notice in their rate card prices almost tripled for peak season, which seems overpriced for the property, but again, its all about taking advantage of their seasonal deals and specials!

Thank you for your kind review of Ocean Vista. I am glad you enjoyed your stay! We do have a sweet property and spectacular beach.

Like other properties along the Napeague Stretch of Amagansett and Montauk, we are a coop/hotel. All rooms are individually owned and decorated. We have some units that are second to none and others that need a little TLC. When you book directly, ask for an updated room and also ask about our Summer Specials. We offer call ins 5%-15% off the rack rate when you do the minimum number of nights. Sometimes during the week we offer 3 nights and get the 4th free!! Families love that one!

The property is smaller then the others on the Stretch with 46 rental units, but we did do a renovation in 2015 to the front facade along with a beach like landscaping.

Like you said it is a peaceful and quiet property. Hope to have you back next year! Jan

My husband booked an overnight stay at the Ocean Vista for the two of us for my birthday recently. We go to Montauk 2 or 3 times a year but normally stay right in town at the same location. Since it is summer and prices are crazy in Montauk (and not a lot of availability either), he looked outside of our usual place. This resort is about 4 - 5 miles west of Montauk.
Not being sure what to expect, we were very pleasantly surprised with Ocean Vista! The room we were in was adorable, clean, and comfortable -- we were very happy with it! Comfy bed, big bathroom, nice sized fridge... My husband was able to cook us delicious breakfast sandwiches -- we brought our own skillet, etc. just in case but the little kitchen was very well stocked.
There is an indoor pool and a tennis court at the resort -- we didn't use either but nice to know they are there if you are interested. There is a boardwalk leading to the private beach -- that was the highlight for me -- the beach! It is an absolutely beautiful beach, I loved it! And my husband enjoyed walking and searching for driftwood and shells.
The Ocean Vista is not fancy -- if you are more inclined to go to Gurney's or the Yacht Club, it may not be your thing. The most important quality to us is cleanliness and a great beach -- this had both. My only regret is that we couldn't stay longer than one night. We definitely hope to go back again soon! Also, Jan at the front desk was very friendly and great at her job!

Thank you so much for staying with us and all of your kind words! Ocean Vista is a special little property with the best stretch of beach. I look forward to having you and your husband back. FYI September is the BEST time to be here!!

Room was clean and had a nice kitchenette,there were chairs and tables right outside th room if you wanted to relax and eat outside. The beach was right there with umbrellas,beach chairs and towels provided. All we needed was of body surf boards and music. No crowds to fight for a good spot on the beach, we loved our stay and wished we could have planned to stay longer than the few nights we booked. A bagel/deli just across the street and montauk is a short 10-15 minute drive away.
