I arrived early and was invited to use the pool and beach ammenties while I waited to check in. The pool was lovely and the beach is beautiful, literally STEPS from the hotel! When my room... More

A beautiful waterfront resort near all. The staff was always so friendly and helpful in any way possible. The proximity to the ocean is amazing and never gets old. This is a resort my family and I will be visiting again!

Can't believe that it only took a minute to walk from the back door to the beach, great staff, even though I was still in my home state NY, it still felt as if I was traveling out of country, the peace and quiet along with a beautiful ocean side view made it spectacular, loved the opportunity to have the...

We had a beautiful room steps away from the beach! There are comfortable lounge chairs, umbrellas and towels set up for you by an attendant all included! Our room had an updated, complete kitchen, updated bathroom, comfortable bed in the bedroom and comfortable living space. We were in unit 8 which is a first floor room and literally steps from...

This was my first time at the Driftwood and I loved it. The room was very nice, very quiet. There's a lot to do there, from the beach, to the pool, playground, shuffleboard, basketball, tennis etc. The night we arrived we went for a walk on the beach and they were showing a movie on an inflatable screen on the...

First time bringing kids to Montauk. Read mixed reviews prior to going, but we had a wonderful time there. The property itself is very well kept and doesn't look run down at all- however we were prepared for the worst when it came to the room based upon previous reviewers.We are a family of 5, Room 67 (2nd fl) fit...

A long time visitor of the east end I have finally found a place that I can call home. A beach front oasis that is perfect for my solo visits - visits with friends and with family (and the kiddies). It's all in one home away from home with kitchens in the rooms, quiet down time locations, bbqs, pool, bonfires... More

Avoid this place if you want to have a nice relaxing trip to Montauk! Booked a room on Hotel tonight! The rooms are not at all what is pictured. We were given this cramped run down room near tge pool! It had a rickety barely working ac unit and the broken blinds fell apart when you tried to close them!... More

We stayed for one week in June. There are definitely pros and cons to staying here. First the pros: It's right on the beach (and although our room is considered ocean view you really can't see the ocean because of the sand dunes). You are on the ocean side so there is no crossing Montauk Hwy, which is nice for... More

My entire family has been coming to the Driftwood for over 30 years for our annual family reunion. The new managers, Tom and Keith, certainly made sure we enjoyed our stay. A special thanks to Keith who helped us straighten out a last minute room change. Denise and Baldwin at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly too. We... More
