My friend and I chose this place based on fairly good TA reviews. It was a last minute booking in mid August for a Thursday night stay which was pricy at $400+ for a one bedroom unit, but at least the place is right on the beach. The one bedroom turned out to be a studio as there was some... More

Been out to Montauk many times, now that I have a family, I'm looking for a quiet "getaway" place to bring my wife and kids to. The driftwood was just the place. The beach is clean, quiet and beautiful. one side is hither hills park, and the other is another resort way down the beach.This place is quiet and secluded... More

My wife, daughter and I have just returned from 5 days here and we loved it. It was our first trip to this beautiful part of the world and the hotel's proximity to the beach, to Montauk and to the Hamptons meant it was a great base for us to both enjoy the sunshine and explore the area. We had... More

I planned a stay with a few friends and they let me choose the hotel. We were all satisfied with the accommodations, service ,and most importantly the location. Our room faced the ocean, very easy and quick access. A perfect mini vacation.

one room had two queen beds and a very rudimentary kitchen. The other, a king bed and pullout couch with a real kitchen. Rooms were clean and maid service good. Back of room fr Noted dunes of nearby state park. Highway a little noisy back there though. Beds seemed pretty hard.

My husband and I just loved the Driftwood. We had a room with a very private deck overlooking the dunes. Our room was spacious and clean, with a fully stocked kitchen, dressing area and bath. We were near the pool, which was terrific. The beach was just over the dunes, and the Driftwood provides free chairs and umbrellas. The sunsets... More

Loving this place! We were searching for a clean, affordable place for a one night stay for our family of five. Love that it is walking distance to a private beach with lounges. At night, you can make a fire on the beach. We had the whole place to ourselves and the view of the sky and stars was spectacular.... More

After spending one horrible night in a hotel in downtown Montauk, my friend and I were very lucky to have found a room for the remaining two nights of our 3 day weekend. We were attending a wedding nearby and needed a last minute rental. We stayed in a cabana room which was close to the pool. Very clean, linens... More

After a 1 night stay in a nightmare of a hotel, we were fortunate enough to get a room at the Driftwood. We had a small poolside cabana. It was perfect. We were attending a wedding in the Hampton's so this was a perfect place to stay. The pool was great. The linens , towels and extras were all top... More

It was a nice and clean place. Not a "TRUE WATER FRONT" I did not have any view of the ocean. Was a little disappointed. To see the ocean you will have a short walk to the beach. Overall not bad. Request a room on a higher floor.I was on the ground floor and had 0 view of the ocean.
