We booked a king sized bed and an ocean front room. bed was not a king size. We could not see the ocean due to the high dune in front of our window. The bedroom was small, kitchen area was nice. The beach is beautiful and very private. The outdoor pool was nice. This was very overpriced for what we... More

It's a nice cute hotel, the view from the room is not that awesome, but the rooms are clean, there is a nice cosy place for barbecue, kitchenette that has everything you need. Cleaning lady Ana does a great job, everything is clean and spotless, nicely decorated towels and such. Very close to the beach. Grate place for family get... More

We booked a last minute two night getaway for my family of 5. My boys are 5 and 3 and a 3 months old. We were able to rent a corner oceanfront room - I believe unit #1. It was so clean and roomy enough for all of us to fit comfortably. I was so impressed with the staff and... More

I booked this hotel pretty late for the busy summer season so we got the very last room available. I had no expectations for the room as I thought it wasn't going to be so great..When we arrived we asked what the "better" rooms where..they are listed as one bedroom ocean front (not direct ocean view) rooms..these rooms do indeed...

Stayed here with friends in June. Upon checking in, we were immediately treated badly by the receptionist who we had to negotiate with to actually get our room. Housekeeping is minimal, amenities are outdated and the staff could be friendlier. They complained about noise, even though half of the rooms we rented by friends of ours. Upon check out, we...

My husband and I made a last minute decision to book a trip out to Montauk for the weekend. We had never been before and found an ocean view one bedroom king room at the Driftwood, for much more than we wanted to pay, but we figured being right on the beach it was worth the money (as opposed to...

What a place! First let me start with the rooms, there are 2 types - studio and 1 bedroom. the 1 bedrooms face the ocean are literally steps from the beach, Studios face hither hills park. Since the units are individually owned each one is furnished differently. Some are more recently updated tastefully, and some are a little more modest.... More

I recently spent close to a post-July 4 week at this hotel/resort. It is a wonderful place. The hotel has numerous rooms of different size and makeup, the most pleasant being those rooms that front the Ocean. They are sizable, with TV, have a kitchen fully supplied (including with coffee) so you can cook, plus each unit has its own... More

I had a good stay at the hotel and really enjoyed the beach, pool, amenities, and location. The hotel offered a good price in comparison to fancier hotels in the area - you get what you pay for. Overall, I had a fun and memorable trip and thought it was worth the price paid. Here are some of my pros... More

We have stayed at this resort for years and it never disappoints. WE love it here and return again and again. The property is immaculate and the staff makes every effort to make our stay enjoyable. We couldn't be happier.
