The Baker House 1650181 Main St

East Hampton Village Bed and Breakfast72 Newtown Lane
631-324-1858
Family-owned and operated, this bed and breakfast was once the home of a whaling captain. The family managed to modernize each of the four guest rooms without robbing them of their charm. Request the Captain's Room and bathe in the home's original claw-foot bathtub. Each room has a private bath, air conditioning and wireless internet access. Best yet, it's a short stroll to East Hampton village, so you can dodge the hassles of driving downtown.

The Hedges Inn74 James Lane
631-324-7101
Genteel but breezy, this inn was recently renovated inside and out. The public areas are gorgeous, but the inattentive desk clerk on duty when we arrived could use a bit of polish in area of customer service. Companies sometimes book the entire inn for special events -- a Victoria's Secret corporate function, a Hanes photo shoot - so reserve far in advance. The 12 guest rooms have private baths, and the flagstone patio is a popular destination for evening refreshments.

Huntting Inn94 Main St

With only 19 rooms, the inn is cozy and intimate. Eight bathrooms were recently renovated, and all the rooms have beds with pillow-top mattresses. Continental breakfast is included, and at dinner, The Palm restaurant serves fish, steaks, chops and hearty Italian fare.

SAG HARBOR

The American Hotel49 Main St
631-725-3535
This historic eight-room hotel in the heart of Sag Harbor is considered a "boutique hotel" for its charm, character and luxury amenities. All rooms have private baths with Jacuzzi tubs. Mini bars and plush down comforters are also a draw. The restaurant and tavern have a clubby feel, complete with a giant moose head that peers down on guests. Finding the desk attendant can be trying, so keep trying.

Baron's Cove Inn31 W. Water St.
631-725-2100
Dock the boat in the marina just beyond the front door, then enjoy a hot shower and a hot meal prepared in the kitchenette of your room. From there it's just a short walk to downtown Sag Harbor. Beach-goers can visit nearby Havens Beach Bay or Bridgehampton Beach to the south. The 66 rooms are decorated in a nautical theme, fitting for this old whaling village. A tennis court, sun deck and pool are on the grounds. It's not glitzy, but it is a clean and quiet retreat from the crowds on Main Street.

Sag Harbor Inn45 W. Water St.

Enjoy proximity to the shops and restaurants of Main Street at here, but not the crowds and street noise. Rooms are decorated with reproduction pine furniture, and the fabrics and carpets could stand some updating. Upper-level decks provide stunning views of Noyack Bay. There's a pool, but it's not heated; wireless internet access is available throughout.

Sag Harbor Inn45 W. Water St.
631-725-2949
The windows were being painstakingly washed on the day of our visit to this historic structure, built in 1795. Rooms are functional and refreshingly spare rather than choked with country-cute antiques and piles of knick-knacks. Treat yourself to a cooking class in the inn's kitchen as part of the Loaves & Fishes Cooking School. Stroll to shops, restaurants and galleries nearby or visit the beach, a five-minute drive south.

Enclave Inn2668 Montauk Hwy.
631-537-2900
Retro outside, nouveau inside, the motel has 10 rooms, all containing sleek furnishings, wall-mounted plasma TVs and stainless steel bathroom vanities. Beyond the privet out front are Bridgehampton High School and endless traffic. But the noise is lost amid the thick lawns and sparkling blue pool set back from the highway.

SOUTHAMPTON

1708 House126 Main St
631-287-1708
Some areas date back to the mid-1600s, but this downtown inn hardly shows its age. At check-in, guests will find the table already impeccably set with china and stemware for the next morning's breakfast. Rooms are spacious, with private baths decorated in wood tones and subway tile. Suites have sitting areas and large desks for guests who fool themselves into thinking they'll get a little work done. All the chi-chi shops and restaurants are just outside the door.

The Capri281 County Road 39A
631-283-6100
The motel is closed during the week. But watch out on weekends. The motel's nightclub and lounge, the Pink Elephant, is a Hamptons hot spot. Crowds spill out of the club and into the courtyard, where cabanas with plush cushions and pillows overlook the pool. The 30 guest rooms have a stylish retro feel, with cut-out headboards, brushed-nickel touches and black-and-white photos on the walls. Guests seem to either love it or hate it; most critics cite the high price or sluggish service. Open from May through mid-September.

The Easterner Motel639 Montauk Hwy.
631-283-9292
Cabins are clean and outfitted with kitchenettes. Plaid bedspreads and rattan chairs give the rooms a kitschy feel. There is a pool, and Cooper Beach is nearby. The best feature, given the good location on the outskirts of Southampton, is the price.

The Enclave Inn450 County Road
631-537-2900
Formerly the Olympia Motel, the inn recently joined the Enclave chain the South Fork (locations in Bridgehampton, Shinnecock, Southampton and Wainscott). All the rooms were renovated to look sleek and slick with their white downy comforters, shiny white laminate furniture and tiled bathrooms stocked with Neutrogena soaps and shampoos. Rooms have a small kitchenette, handy for making a picnic to eat by the pool.

The Mainstay Inn579 Hill St.
631-283-4375
The innkeeper's artistic flair is seen everywhere, starting with the faux-painted walls that give the bed and breakfast a dreamy feeling. It's close to downtown, but so secluded that guests may want to skip the social scene and lounge by the pool or amid the roses. Rooms have antique beds and country pine furniture. Not all of the eight guest rooms have a TV; most have air conditioning. Continental breakfast is served.

Southampton Country House485 N. Main St.
631-283-7338
This bed and breakfast is open mainly on weekends during the busy season. Guest can choose among two rooms, each with its own bath, and a roomy two-bedroom apartment. The innkeepers - and their cat - are friendly and readily make guests feel at home. (Maybe that's why so many have returned over the inn's 13 seasons.) Rates include a full breakfast, prepared in an airy kitchen that overlooks the lush, landscaped lawns around the pool.
