I have been going there with my family for 4 years. For a person that never goes back to the same place twice, this says a lot. It is a motel so do not expect anything like the places that are closer to the boardwalk. But, what they do have is fantastic. The rooms are clean if a little small.... More

I went on vacation with two of my girlfriends and this hotel was a good choice. The private beach was my favorite part. The ocean was perfect everything was right in the hotel. The pool was also nice because it was heated. Then the restaurant inside the hotel could have been better but they did have good fries. We had... More

I agree with everything Michael who my friends and I met on the beach Wednesday. We met the nicest adults along with their very polite children at the pool and patio area. The owners and their sister Betty Ann could not do enough for their guests you are treated like family from check-in to check -out. Looking forward to our... More

A short walk away from Jenks is THE BEST motel on the strip! The people are great -- guests every season are always great -- private beach & pool ... AWESOME! There's absolutely nothing that isn't great here, year after year! Just got home and am already looking forward to next year!

I stayed here for 3 nights with my 3 year old daughter and my mom, while visiting NJ from CA. I have never been to a hotel where you have to bring everything-towels, shower things, beach chairs, pretty much everything. Traveling on a plane from CA, it's quite obvious a beach chair will not be one of the items in... More

So yes the parking lot is tight and they should have hangers in the room. But, once you get past that everything was great! The staff were ALL very nice and very helpful with all of our needs. We just all loved how we could be together without having to be on top of eachother at all times. The patio... More

The private beach, the view, and the snack bar were amazing! The room was very clean and spacious. Parking was a little hard for my truck by they make it work. The pool was very clean and comfy. All of the staff were very nice and talkative.

I have been staying at the driftwood for years. I always enjoy my stay every time. Located right on the beach with beautiful views and a clean pool that sits Oceanside. One can be relaxing by the pool while the rest are on the beach having fun still within view of each other. Walking distance to Boardwalk, but far enough... More
