Best Affordable Beach Resorts
Courtesy of East Deck Motel
Surfers and New York City media types flock to the shingled, L-shaped East Deck Motel for its retro look and unbeatable location along Ditch Plains beach, on Long Island’s South Fork. With wood paneling, floral bedspreads, and not a flat-screen TV in sight, the 28 unassuming rooms are the perfect antidote to the Hamptons. Take a morning yoga class, amble along the coastal path, or settle in on the oceanfront deck, fringed by bayberry bushes.
