Accommodations!


Montauk has a lot of options. We visited as many places as we could so that we can offer you solid recommendations at a few different price points. All the motels we are suggesting are in the village of Montauk, a 5 minute drive from the wedding venue and near plenty of amenities (supermarket, food, drink, shopping, etc). Most require a 2-night minimum and there is nothing we can do about that. All rooms are on a first come first serve basis so please book as soon as you can! By the end of April rooms will begin to disappear fast because Montauk in September is bound to draw quite the crowd. Below is the full list of accommodations. Also feel free to visit the Montauk Chamber of Commerce website.

Our Hotel:
Rooms range from $125-$185, moderate by Montauk standards. Just over the dunes from the ocean, next to the local supermarket, and on the edge of Montauk village. Children under 10 stay free. Two night minimum does apply. The Saturday night welcome beach party will take place in the yard and on the adjacent beach (we hope). Efficiencies (kitchenettes) available. Mention "Feleppa/Dunkle" wedding.

Oceanside Beach Resort (A&K #1 Pick!)
626 Montauk Hwy
Montauk, NY 11954

631-668-9825


Full Luxury:
Gurney's Inn is a Montauk tradition for offering everything at your fingertips: resort, spa, fine dining, amazing indoor pool, oceanfront location, and much more. This is also going to be our wedding venue where we will have everything from the ceremony to drinks, dinner and dancing. Due to the high demand for rooms at Gurney's Inn they only have availability from Sunday night onward. However, Gurney's will allow our guests to stay Sunday night only if they wish, avoiding the minimum most other places require. Rooms will be $225 for two people and include breakfast and spa and beach facilities. Mention "Dunkle" wedding. Range is $235+ for any other nights.

Gurney's Inn, Resort and Spa (Top 5 Pick!)

A Few Extra Dollars:
Rooms are $150 and up. Most have efficiencies. All close to or on the ocean. Places on Old Montauk Hwy are not in the village but a close 5-minute drive away.
