This place is something special. The service is off the charts. You will feel pampered the minute you pull up to the valet. The spa is blissful. The Sunday brunch is to die for. Plan on spending a couple hours savoring the experience if you decide to brunch. We had a basic room that was quite lovely, although we were...

Dear Renee B, Thank you for staying at Ocean House! What a compliment you consider us to be one of the best hotels you’ve ever visited. Sunday Brunch is certainly one of my favorite offerings with its raw bar, dessert display and live jazz music. It’s true all 49 guestrooms will undergo a head-to-toe renovation during a three-week closure in...

We have visited Ocean House 6 times, either shoulder (Spring and Autumn) or fully "Off" season - in the dead of winter - and always find the Hotel and locale magical. Hotel staff spectacular, amenities great (lap pool fitness center is superb), 2 squash courts (!), welcoming restaurant and bar area. The setting is memorable - ocean views to Montauk,...

There aren't many hotels like this anymore. Maybe a Ritz or Four Seasons comes close in terms of service, but there's something about the ambiance here that is special. The setting is spectacular. The hotel itself is a throwback to more gracious times, but in no way old-fashioned. Just as important, you are treated as a valued guest, from start...

Ocean House is by far one of my favorite places. Its first class without being pretentious and the staff is usually excellent. The OH Spa is excellent but could probably use a bit of an update in the waiting rooms. The after spa relaxation area is lovely. Brunch and lunch is always great - dinners could use a little updating...
