The accommodations are clean and updated and there is a nice of crowd of vacationers, no loud teenagers. 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

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.
