Best place to stay on the beach & pool, close to Tiki Bar etc.... Family friendly rooms are clean and good service all around. Also met some new friends. Can't wait to go back next year for girls weekend.

Thanks to all the Driftwood staff for taking care of us while on vacation. Yes we book in my opinion the best suite in the place.

Great Motel. Perfect place right on the beach. Friendly Staff. Close to Boardwalk. Cant wait to go back again next year. Beach beautiful and very clean. Have a great snack shack and great patio are near the pool. Had my three boys with me age 14,12 and 10. The boys loved the pool and the beach.

I wanted a place on the NJ Shore right on the beach with a view. I also wasn't willing to pay a small fortune to rent an entire beach house. Lastly I wanted to be in driving distance of NYC and Great Adventure. The Driftwood Motel fit the bill perfectly. The efficiency we booked has a deck with a great... More

The owners and staff are always helpful. If you're not picky and what some private quality time on the beach this... More

No iron,hair drier, microwave, or complimentary coffee maker. I had to ask for shampoo & conditioner and body lotion; which have always been resent in EVERY hotel that I remember... More

You can not beat the location of Driftwood Motel! Beautiful ocean views with a private beach, heated pool & snack bar. The staff was friendly & helpful & the property is well maintained. Our bathroom could've used a little updating but everything else about this place is so wonderful you spend very little time in your room. We will definitely... More
