Driftwood on the ocean is a property by the ocean with very few people on the beach. The rooms were small but was cozy. The room have a small kitchen and living room. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The property is located outside of town and felt like we had a private beach. A great short term getaway.

My husband and I stayed here with our 6 week old baby. It was the perfect getaway from all the noise that comes along with having a child. The beach is beautiful and we enjoyed the seemingly new chairs and umbrellas. The pool was very clean and lovely, as well as the gym. Last but not least, we loved that...

Stayed in a studio the first night and a one bedroom the second night. Both were clean, and comfortable. A perfect beach location. The staff was friendly, and efficient and did their best to make sure that our stay at the Driftwood was a pleasant one.

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...

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...

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...
