We were staying at another place in the Hamptons and decided to look around for a somewhat better place. We found it at the Ocean View Terrace. Not only it was better but it was more moderately priced and a lot cleaner which counts for a lot! Their pool was closed in late September, but their inviting loungers down by...

We stayed at the Ocean View Terrace for 3 nights in August. The room we had was an efficiency unit which was perfect for cooking breakfast etc. Had all the pots & pans, utensils for the limited cooking we did. It also had a small fridge, microwave and coffeemaker. The beds were comfortable and the unit was very clean. Penny...

We were there for 4 days and 3 nights to celebrate my 40th birthday. We had a one bedroom suite 119 which is facing the swimming pool and the bay. I feel its a little expensive since the rooms are extremely small. There's a jacuzzi in the bathroom but the kitchen and living room is the size of the bathroom....

We have been going to the Hamptons for many years including visits from Montauk to Hampton Bays, Sag Harbor, and Greenport. We just returned from a "fantastic" vacation experience at the beautiful Ocean View Terrace Motel in Hampton Bays. We had a lovely efficiency unit that included a kitchen area with a toaster, microwave, stove, coffee maker and most importantly,...

We chose to vacation on Long Island, where we actually live, so our 18 year old could drive out and meet us after getting a few days off from her summer lifeguard job. The Hampton Bays may only be a hour away from our RVC home, but it is a very different and beautiful Long Island. The beaches, notably Cooper...

Just finished a wonderful stay at the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean with views either on the large garden or over onto to the beautiful bay. This hotel was a pleasure to have stayed in, a relaxing break from the big city. Definitely a must-go, and when we come again Ocean View Terrace is where we're booking :)

If you are looking for caviar dreams in the Hamptons -- this isn't it. But for a very well-run, clean and enjoyable motel near beaches, restaurants and marinas, then this will nicely fill the bill. The proprietress, Penny, is an unstoppable bundle of energy-- overseeing every detail of the motel and her attention to detail shows. The rooms are clean...

Not sure why this place has such good reviews. There were moths, beetles and other strange bugs in the place.The light in the bathroom didn't work and i was told to "flick the switch" ...really? No coffee maker but room is so tiny even if they had one I have no idea where they would put it. Been going to...

I am amazed that this gentleman has written such a review of the Ocean View Terrace. We have a beautiful view of Shinnecock Bay as the property is terraced and even though there are houses on the south side of the road the view is open and the breeze from the open bay is delicious. As far as beetles and...
