My stay at the Driftwood Motel was a great experience with my family . The great view of the beach and comfort of a clean room was excellent . My children played on the private and clean beach with a life guard . Even a great view of the ocean from the patio next to the swimming pool made it... More

The location is perfect, but the room was horrible. It SMELLED like mold and some outlets did not work. The room was dingy to say the least...bedspreads that you really didn't want to sit on. We had a one year old with us and I truly didn't want him crawling around in the room or sitting on the bedspreads...I had... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Driftwood Motel. My wife and I travel a lot on long weekend trips. The Driftwood fulfilled our needs and expectations. Our room, #128 was modestly furnished, clean, had a nice balcony and a beautiful direct view of the ocean. Management was nice and helpful, and the grounds are very well maintained and kept clean....

We have come every June since they were in 2nd grade and have always had the best times! We rent the same efficiency every year which serves our purposes well. Each year they add... More

Our family of 5 stayed in the efficiency apartment for a week. The location of the hotel was perfect-steps to the beach , walking distance to boardwalk but the interior of the unit was old and drab. The pullout sofa is located in the small kitchen and we were not able to use it because the mattress was just springs.... More

This is one of the nicest beach motels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are clean, not damp. The private beach is wonderful as is the deck and pool area. We will definitely return next year.

The Driftwood means well, it really does. When we arrived , the room was clean ( I inspected everything from the toilet to the matress). The room itself was outdated and had numerous lame attempts at fixing things up to make the room look better. There is no bathtub- only a stall shower. No shampoo- only soap that smelled like...

This motel is sort of hidden; from the street, one could not imagine what a gem this property is. It is situated on it's own private beach and has a large pool as well.The staffs are extremely friendly and very accommodating. I book an oceanfront room with a balcony on the second floor. The room was beautiful, clean and well... More
