My family and I have been staying at the Driftwood for 2 years and we will continue to go back every summer (we are going again this year)! Their private beach is perfect for people who don't like crowds. There is a very nice heated pool that is always clean and definitely kid friendly! The staff was extremely accommodating and... More

Snack stand right on the beach, plus there are tables and chairs on beach - I will definitely be taking my family back to enjoy this spot! I could literally stay at the motel for the entire time of my vacation and... More

The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The pool was heated and clean and it was nice to be right on the beach. Our only complaint was the dampness. Since the shore is humid and there was a 1" gap at the bottom of our room door, everything was wet (the bedding, carpet, our clothes, etc). Not pleasant... More

My family and I have been staying at this hotel for years and will continue going back every summer!!! My husband and I also got married right on the beach in front of the hotel on Labor Day weekend of last year. If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy the Jersey Shore at a great price...

Betty Ann was so fabulous, I felt like I was staying with family! Our cable was giving us trouble and she went out of her way to try and fix it, when it didn't work she helped us move rooms and even brought the new keys to us to save us time! I couldn't say enough nice things about her!... More

We go for a girls birthday weekend, but there are lots of families, all in all a really nice atmosphere. The best... More

Just finished planning my family vacation to the Driftwood Motel for this summer. After finding them on the internet last year we were lucky enough to get a room as they sell out quickly. My family and I stayed there last summer and we all agree it was our best vacation yet. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. We... More

We have stayed at the driftwood for about 25 years and it is wonderful every single year. Great location to many things. Lovely pool and right on the beach. Quick 10 minute walk to the boardwalk which is great for all the kids. They could use a few minor updates here and there but what hotel doesn't. It's a wonderful... More
