Great location and nice resort that is a good value. Room was really nicely renovated. We will stay there again. Located on the ocean and quiet/peaceful but still a short drive away from Montauk and East Hampton. Loved it.

We stayed in room #2, a queen sized unit. It was very clean and equipped with modern appliances. The bedding and towels were both very nice. We had a deck equipped with a table and chairs, lounge chairs and a charcoal BBQ. It was only steps to the ocean. The staff is very attentive too all your needs. Loved this... More

The room initially seemed clean overall but did not expect the floors to be so filthy, the the bathroom sink not working, light bulb out in the ready area, and holes in the frame work by the floor in the bathroom, Shocker that this could be happening to us after paying so much for 3 nights. Biggest shock is that... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Driftwood many times over the years. It's a great location - off the beaten path, which often translates into little noise, except that of nature (ocean waves, birds, insects), and allows for nice walks along the beach. The accommodations are wonderful and the staff responsive. It can get expensive, as with most... 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...

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...
