The Hamptons is home to Beyonce and Jay-Z, Neil Patrick Harris and Robert Downey Jr, so it’s no wonder it is such a fantastic and sought-after vacation spot! You’re just 90 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of New York City, but you might as well be on another planet. Think stunning beaches with breathtaking dunes, quirky boutique stores, and the iconic Montauk Point Lighthouse. Thankfully you don’t have to have the budget of a celebrity to be able to afford to stay here if you know where to look! Here are some fantastic but affordable hotels in the Hamptons.
Ocean Surf Resort Inn
Rated number one budget hotel in the Hamptons, this is a fantastic pick for families who want a cheap but cozy hotel right on the beach. It’s clean with friendly staff and you are only a five-minute walk from various restaurants and a family fun center, or you can choose to save even more by using the kitchenette in your room which features a microwave oven, toaster, refrigerator, and stove. You can enjoy the private balcony with your room, and the heated pool is perfect for cooling down in.
Hotel Indigo East End
If you’re looking for a more boutique option, this hotel has been remodeled from a Best Western and offers a fitness suite, a spa, a bar and restaurant, and an outdoor lounge area. You are close by to the Hampton Bays, a local waterpark and a few wineries too! The rooms are stylish and chic, with flat-screen TVs, and coffee makers, as standard but without a hefty price tag! This is an excellent choice of hotel that balances luxury and style with cost, so you can treat yourself without ending up mazing out that credit card!
Harborside Resort Motel
As the name suggests, this accommodation is ideal for those who like to fish or explore the water. You’re situated right by the marinas and fishing charters, and for boat lovers, the motel offers a wash-down service and use of the boat launch. If you’re more of a fan of contained water, the pool is perfect for enjoying a paddle or relax on a lounger. The rooms are basic but come with everything you need, and the staff is friendly.
Hyatt Place Long Island East End
This hotel chain is another family-favorite with free breakfast, both indoor and outdoor pools and spacious, comfortable rooms. You’re just a stone’s throw from the Long Island Aquarium and Splish Splash Water Park which are ideal for days out or stay at the hotel and hire sporting equipment too. Enjoy the view of the Peconic River as you are ideally placed on the Fork to head to either The Hamptons or Long Island if you wish.
So now you know that a trip to the Hamptons doesn’t have to mean your credit card gets a battering, what are you waiting for?! Live like a celebrity for a long weekend, especially if you have saved enough on your room to splash out a little in other areas!
