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

Here's the good. Great location. Right on the ocean, steps away. Clean pool, well maintained. Both pool and beach have attendants to set up chairs, towels and umbrellas. Water coolers. Courteous, helpful staff in every way. Great outdoor porch with tables and chairs, BBQ (bring your own charcoal) chaise lounges right in front of your unit (if ocean front that... More

Perhaps it is the rooms that we occupied, but honestly, this is not really "First Class" for all the accommodations. We got a great rate with Hotel Tonight. The room is normally $439 per night but we paid$179. They only give you one night but when we arrived we asked if we could get a second night. No problem. We... More

We had our summer family vacation and although the weather did not cooperate, we had a lovely time. The resort does a great job! The management goes above and beyond to assure a lovely stay. Tom and Deniz were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were immaculate, the resort itself was kept in pristine condition. We would definitely come back.

The best of Montauk. Relaxed atmosphere, walk straight on to the beach. The room we stayed in(a cabin) was immaculate with everything we needed. Well equipped kitchen and nice layout of the living room. The people in the front office are friendly and helpful. We've been coming to Montauk for 25 years and this was one of our best experiences.... More

Really nice job by the new management company. Both Keith and Tom are great guys and eager to make sure you enjoy your time spent at the Driftwood. Added touches this year include movie night on the beach. A lot of fun and kid favorite. The entire resort has a different feel and if you have not visited in awhile,... More

Our beach getaway was fabulous at the Driftwood. The friendly staff (Baldwin and Denise at the Front Desk, Dean who set us up/spoiled us daily with beach chairs, umbrellas and towels) and the bright and freshly decorated rooms were perfect. I can't wait to return. The Driftwood is much better with their new hotel management company and renovated rooms and... More

Get place. Get location. What's not to like. Just need a jacuzzi. I know that a new Management company took over this year and they are doing everything they can make Driftwood THE place to go. Our room was super clean and updated
