Oceanfront rooms are nice for sure, beach is ok - nothing outstanding - its the last hotel on the beach so you can go away from crowds if desire. Pool is so so. Far from center, shops and its good and bad at the same time, there are restaurants not far.

Just got back from 2 weeks in Room #11 and must say the place is still getting better. They have upgraded the gym, resurfaced the tennis courts and refurbed the front office. Looks fantastic. Beach was cleanest I have ever seen it. They have really done a lot of work in the off season. New dune grass planted, rooms keep... More

I spent $900 to stay in a lousy junior efficiency room that wasn't renovated. I know a junior efficiency is going to be small, but I didn't know it was going to be disgusting. The wi-fi reception was total trash, as was the rest of the room. The bathroom featured a makeshift "shower" and an ancient toilet that were crammed... More

The place was very clean, the people very friendly and helpful. Easy access to the beach, with the boys at the beach to get chairs (very accomadating!). Overall, very happy. Great beach restaurant within walking distance. All the other guests very friendly. The pool, playground, basketball and tennis were an added bonus!

I have been taking my kids to Montauk and the Jersey shore for years so we can visit family and get some days on the beach. This by FAR a great place to spend quality time with family/friends and create memories. Driftwood is NOT a resort but a fantastic little gem of a beach 'community' that is close to Montauk... More

We're mainly interested in the beach and an updated attractive efficiency unit. We got that and so much more! Our rm was delightful. As with many places in Mtk, rms are not all cookie cutter, so ask for a renovated rm and anything else that's impt before you book. You ask, you get! We had a 2 rm oceanfront eff... More

My Husband and I went with our 2 year old daughter. We booked an oceanfront room with the private deck equipped with a bbq. The 2 room suite was so clean and cozy, we loved it! Everynight we sat outside on the deck and had some wine while we listened to the ocean. Check in & Check out was very... More

Room was very pleasant, overlooking the dunes and ocean. The earlier part of the week, we were the only guests and it was so peaceful and quiet, it was kind of eerie! But even as other guests arrived, it still remained very relaxing. Only critique is that after 7pm there really is no staffing around so make sure you get... More

Hoped to meet other young people, party, do things but place was not that awesome, some people were cool but a lot of kids (forget about the pool if you are NOT a huge fan of 'Marco-Polo' game - all day long) but the beach is good, few bars around are cool. Good place if you are already with big... More

I booked four nights at this place this past summer, but ended up stay six! I first had a double room but four days in opted to change to a beach front suite with grill/patio extension. Upon arrival, I---like other reviewers stated too--- was left a key for an early check in---like the front desk attendant promised. In the morning,... More
