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.

Awesome resort right off the beach. Some hotels in Montauk are across the street from the beach but Driftwood is ON THE BEACH! I love just heading by the ocean, grabbing a beach chair and listening to the ocean. It's beautiful water with nice waves. Great for surfing if you're into it. The water was freezing cold when I went... More

I have been thinking about driving to the tip of Long island for many years and this June this opportunity opened up for us. I visited Montauk with my wife and 2 kids. We made reservations at the last minute - hoping to find just a place to sleep and rest during the night. We were pleasantly surprised at our... More

This was a great place to spend a few nights away. It was quiet as we checked in on Memorial Day when everyone was leaving and going home...thankfully. It was very quiet and literally not much going on but it was what we wanted and needed. The rooms or mini cabins where tiny and everything was mini lol. All was... More

We stayed here for two nights to soak up Montauk and found it very relaxing. The location is excellent and the private beach is well stocked with sun lounges and beach towels, which is super convenient. The pool area is also excellent, I spent a lot of time enjoying the Indian summer. All in all the rooms are fairly basic,... More

Looking for a relatively inexpensive hotel for the last weekend in October, I booked a room on the beach side. We were thrilled with the cleanliness of the rooms - especially since the room was a few feet from the sand. My one complaint was partly my fault, and ended unfortunately. I had left two articles of clothing behind. We... More
