My family and I have been going to the Driftwood for years and have always had a great time. We stopped going for a couple years and just went back this July 23, 24, and 25th. It is family owned with very friendly staff. Great place to go because it is a short walk to the boardwalk, the beach is... More

The location is great and the private beach is wonderful . The rooms need updating . While it seems the carpets were replaced you can tell the hurricane damage and furniture has not been replaced . Also there were dead Mosquitos in the room and flies in the kitchen . I did not expect luxury , but for more than... More

This was our annual girlfriend's vacation- 3 nights midweek- 2 double beds. If you're looking for 5 star keep going- but if you're main purpose is to be right on the PRIVATE beach then this is the spot. This is a very basic motel- no coffee maker, no clock, no phone, no restaurant There is a mini fridge. I brought... More

Our family just came home from the Driftwood. We have never felt so comfortable so fast in any hotel/resort before. The brothers ( owners) could not have been more accomodating as well as their help around the compound. Betty Ann was always offering her help and busy keeping the place tidy. Their deck, tables, adirondack chairs and best of all... More

This was our first trip to Point Pleasant and what an adorable beach town! The Driftwood is an older property, as are many in the area, but it is well kept and very clean. The pro's for this property-pleasant, helpful staff, small private beach with no beach fees, cute common courtyard area with plenty of seating, umbrellas, picnic tables-all with... More

I absolutely love the Driftwood!!!! It is directly on the beach, but best of all the beach is private. The rooms are well kept, the grounds are very clean, the pool is large and beautiful, there are many patio sets to relax, and there is a breakfast/lunch hut which cooks the BEST food. We go every year and we are... More

This was our first time in point pleasant as a family and it was great. The private beach was clean and beautiful! There was even a snack bar and a beautiful patio area to relax. The staff was extremely nice and helpful as well. As for the review that insinuated there were kids running wild-that definitely didn't happen!!!!! Families were... More

We went for five days and had a great time! So close to the boardwalk, and the private beach was very clean. The owners and staff were very pleasant, the room was fresh and clean, and the pool was great. We will definitely be back next summer! (P.S. The Coal House on Arnold Ave has the best pizza I ever...
