My family has enjoyed beautiful stays at the Driftwood for the past few years and I can't wait to go back! The beach and pool are clean and beautiful. The rooms have everything we need and the staff is kind and helpful. Other families have always been friendly and fun. This is a great place to stay with family! Jill... 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

We were attracted to this place becuase of it's location, availability and TA reviews. Nightmare begins - thr stench of the room almost knocked us out. Black staine on the top sheets. We had to take them off and do with out. Only 3 threadbare towels with yellow stains. The towels were the size of a bathmat. Speaking of bathmats... More

We vacation each year the week after Labor Day. As usual we had a wonderful time. Room very clean, people very friendly and helpful. Pool and beach outstanding. So convenient to boardwalk, restaurants, and shopping. Could not have been better.

My sister and I have returned to the Driftwood every year for at least the past 12 years. It has a private beach, heated pool and snack bar. The rooms are well kept and clean and the staff is friendly, congenial and very helpful. It is the perfect place to relax and catch up on your reading. The boardwalk is... More

This is my family's twelfth consecutive year here. Located directly on the beach with a heated pool and snack bar, play area and patio, and informal nature, it's a home away from home. Add to it, the staff is equally like family, considerate, helpful and watchful, my family has always felt safe and comfortable. There is also a private lifeguard... More

The Driftwood is our first choice of places to stay every summer. The location is prime, within walking distance of the boardwalk and the only club in town. Within steps of each room is a clean, heated pool AND the beach! Perfect.

Even my teen boys were grossed out by this place. Room smelled like smoke, comforters were filthy, old delapidated furniture, bugs crawling over sheets, paper thin towels, terrible parking, no electrical outlets, exposed electrical wires, 19" TV, hard mattresses... A totally bad experience. We did all we could to avoid a room that cost $230/night in September! Even the people... More

Let me just say, I had the most amazing vacation! Woke up to a beautiful sunrise with dolphins dancing along the shore. My room was clean with everything I needed. The owner's are the most hospitable and friendly family I have ever met, I truly felt at home. The heated pool was immaculate! Their private beach was only steps from... More
