Hotels in Montauk

Owned by a team of New York City club impresarios, the Surf Lodge made a splash when it opened its 32-waterfront rooms on Fort Pond in the summer of 2008.

The 80-year old island staple, where Charles Lindbergh once visited, gave its 107 rooms a multimillion dollar overhaul in 2009. The property has a scaled-down replica of the town’s famous lighthouse, not to mention three pools, four tennis courts, a spa, and a marina.

The low-key property is a revamped oceanfront motel.

The low-key Tudor-style hotel has beachy accents like sisal carpets and wood-burning fireplaces.
