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.

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...

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!
