My husband and I stayed here June of 2012. Our room was so small. The room itself was in need of paint, and updating. Linens were very old. The room also smelled. I was surprised at how much this room cost after opening the door and seeing what we paid for. I won't go back. One nice find was the... More

My family and I have been going to the Driftwood for a number of years. We wouldn't go anywhere else. The beach is fabulous, the owners are like family. The rooms are clean and everything is so accessible. They couldn't be more accommodating. We love the Driftwood and plan on vacationing there and only there whenever we visit New Jersey.... More

This hotel has a nice location on the beach, but the rooms are tired. It is away from the boardwalk by about a mile. It can be easily walked if you are interested. There is a snack bar (costly), but convenient on premises, for breakfast and lunch.

We stayed at this motel the week after labor day 2013 and we were very pleasantly surprised by the accomadations. This beachfront motel has it all! Clean, quiet rooms, Friendly staff, Heated pool, Snack bar and its own private beach. Located approx 1 mile from the Point Pleasant boardwalk, this place is a gem and we give it 5 stars!

Clean hotel on it's own private beach. No need to buy beach badges or take long walk lugging chairs, etc. Pool next to the ocean. Owners friendly and kind. Friends have been going for 10 years straight and now I know why! A wonderful little family hotel with a lot of class and character. Recommend!

We booked this weekend trip last minute due to the prevailing weather reports. We were put into a ocean view room the first night and a partial ocean view the second. Private beach was wonderful and a lifeguard was on duty (something you don't often see on private beaches). The outdoor pool was clean and perfect for a cool dip.... More

We rented 4 rooms for three days, most of the staff bent over backward to help any way they could, the rooms were older but very clean, small TV but who goes to the beach to watch TV? The rooms were not cheap but what room at the shore is? Nice location on the beach, small parking area. Would I... More

About a mile walk to the Boardwalk. ! car per room but free street parking a block away to drag your luggage. I like the private beach area, small but nice. Pool was really clean and basically warm. I didn't go in but a few kids were swimming. Room had a mini fridge, decent tv, lots of channels, wall mounted... More
