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

Our ocean-facing room with a king size bed was beautifully appointed in pastel greys/greens and updated with high-beamed slanted ceilings, fans, and a complete kitchenette and small den. The bed was comfortable. A small table and chairs outside coaxed us to sit and chat by candlelight. The beach was very close, right past the dunes, eminently accessible and walkable, just... More

My husband and I stayed at the Driftwood on a Friday night in October. We were going to a wedding at Gurney's and the Driftwood was one of two hotels included in the invitation, and apparently the one that most of the people going to the wedding had booked at. For a room at a beach resort in October, and... More

We stayed in Room 1, a corner room with one queen bed, a pullout couch (didn't use it), kitchen and sitting area. The view from the kitchen/sitting area was pretty although not truly much of an ocean view if you are envisioning waves spraying onto your windows. We were not and liked it very much. The beach, however, was a... More

Our room was nice in size with a kitchen and full size refrigerator. If you had a family, this could be a nice setup so you don't have to eat out every meal. There were some nice touches, a fan in bedroom and living room, tiled floors, speakers to be used if you have an ipod (not sure there was... More

My partner and I went to the Driftwood as a gift from a friend. The units are privately owned and they vary so Im reviewing the actual resort not the guestrooms/apts as they most likely vary. The resort is located between Amagganset and Montauk, about 5 miles in either direction. Its perfect because its not crowded on the beach at... More

This is the second year my family has come to Driftwood we absolutely love it here the employees are very gracious and for the most part both times the neighbors have been the best I couldn't have asked for better ones. We love coming to Driftwood and can't wait till next year.

Montauk is a beauty. We try to stay at different places/different areas of the East end. Driftwood was the perfect escape. Clean rooms (loved the 2 room suite we had right on the beach). Second room had a kitchenette, pull out sofa, & door to the balcony with picnic tables & sun loungers. Love opening the back door to the... More
