We were there last summer as a family and just spent our 30th wedding aniversary there. We had the ocean view king room. It was clean and comfortable. We are going back next month for our family vacation. The snack bar is great for breakfast and lunch. Pool and grounds are kept clean. Great quiet beach right out your door.... More

We have been going to this place for years but this is the final and last time we will go there. The place is run down and nothing has changed through the years. The sister runs the hotel and walks around smoking cigarettes all day, sitting at the pool with you wtih one black, one blue sock and no shoes... More

What a BLAST ! The Driftwood is the ONLY hotel we stay at when we visit the shore. We have been going here for almost ten years ! The staff is very friendly and like family to each other. The rooms are always clean and if we need towels or anything they are very prompt to bring them. We love... More

the experience was great from the atmosphere to the people. whether youre going for a weekend getaway or an extended visit to the shore, the driftwood is most definitely where to stay. the pool, private beach, cozy rooms & being within walking distance to a lot of places made it even more enjoyable.

I vacation at the Jersey Shore every year and wouldn't stay anywhere other than the Driftwood. There is always someone on staff for your every need or guidance on where to eat, drink or shop. Right outside your door is a pool, snack bar, and a private beach. There is nothing left to need. If you have a problem, let... More

We have gone to the Driftwood for many years and always enjoy ourselves. We like that you can walk out your door onto a private beach and pool. You can also enjoy your morning coffee or lunch overlooking the ocean. The staff are great and ensure you have a good stay. It is a nice family owned business and it... More

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....
