We have been going to the Driftwood every year for the past 15 years! We love it there! Pool and patio are right on the private beach! No need to leave. The rooms are clean and the staff is very friendly! Once you're there, you'll hate to leave! We just returned home from a 2 day trip that turned into... More

Nice clean room decorated in tastefully in beach theme. Small frig in room and coffee maker. Helpful staff. Small sitting area outside room and we had a fabulous view of the beach. First time at LBI, but plan to go back again. Beach was a very short walk from hotel and so clean! Area offered wonderful restaurants and shopping. Definitely... More

We stayed here because it was the least expensive motel, but wish that we had paid more to stay some where else. The rooms are gross, the carpet is so old and filthy that after you wash your feet then walk on the carpet, your feet are BLACK. There is no designated smoking area and everywhere on the property people... More

I have stayed here every year for the past 10 years. It truly is my home away from home. Having the beach, pool and snack bar only steps away from the room is perfect for people with children! Excellent staff, very friendly, very clean! I recommend this place to everyone I know and they all come back and tell me... More

My family and I love staying at The Driftwood. There is a private beach, pool and snack bar all within a few feet of the motel. The rooms aren't the most spacious, but they are clean. Everything is in walking distance…the boardwalk is a long walk, but it is doable. Pt. Pleasant is beautiful and the nightlife is fun.

We go with a large group, about 19 kids and 21 adults and have a blast! The location is great, right on the beach with pool. The kids are... More

This year was our 8th year coming to the Driftwood for our firm's summer outing. The staff is great and now known on a first name basis. This year the Driftwood went above and beyond on helping us with our outdoor BBQ. Lori is an absolute pleasure to speak with on the phone and look forward to speaking to her... More

Love love this motel! It's right on the beach and you don't have to leave at all. There is breakfast and lunch that you can buy at very reasonable prices, with outdoor seating for your convienance The rooms are spacious and clean. There is also a pool which worked out great for me with little kids. I can't say enough... More
