Gurney's Inn Resort & Spa, the only ocean front hotel in the Hamptons, will reopen Memorial Day weekend and unveil a series of upgrades and renovations just in time for summer.

The main component of the revamp is the addition of 38 new rooms, shown in the photos of this post. As you can see, they look pretty sharp, very modern but maintaining that simple beachside vibe. The only thing missing (judging from the photos) is a little bit of color, which we hope the hotel will introduce with fresh flowers or perhaps some wall-hanging art.

Also included in the reopening is the addition of four new restaurant concepts that feature a seafood restaurant (Seawater Grill), sushi and raw bar (Ocean Cafe), on-beach full-service chaise lounge (The Beach Club), and a juice/smoothie/coffee bar (The Market). The spa has also been refreshed along with the addition of a seawater swimming pool.

Folks supposedly leave money in the bible as either a way to reward acts of faith or discourage thieves from stealing money out of a bible.

Lastly, folks leave stuff in-between mattresses, particularly pornography and Lifehacker mentions its usually airline pilots who have a sort of "library" of this naughty reading material at their crashpad hotels. Ewww.
