“10 years going and always happy”
Reviewed 18 August 2011

The Driftwood is a great place to stay at the shore with your family. Perfect set up for a motel all closed in, nice pool and private beach. I have been going there for 10 years and have never had a bad visit. Most of the people that are in the motel when I go have all been going down for 10 years or more...they must be doing something right...great place to stay and I will be there next year!

Room Tip: book early it fills up fast

This motel is on the Jersey Shore. Has a heated swimming pool that is always kept very clean. There is a poolside snack bar that is open during the summer months. We rent one of the efficiencies with a full kitchen. They have done some remodeling and updating inside and out. Rooms are comfortable and roomy, multiple closets and dressers and ac. Only two stories with a few efficiencies on the third floor with ocean view (no elevator). Parking is tight. Lots of families vacationing, staff friendly and accommodating. Very nice place to go and relax, walk the beach, enjoy the sunrise and within walking distance of the boardwalk.

For once a cliche seems to be accurate... because a stay here (whether brief or extended) is truly a touch of paradice: a clean, comfortable room, a pristene beach, a refreshing swimming pool... and access to delicious, affordable food. If you're looking for a wonderful stay in Pt. Beach, consider this your best buy... I already have plans to visit again next year.

The staff is so friendly and accommodating. The pool is kept super clean and the private beach is definitely a big bonus! Great comfortable place to stay for a reasonable price!

Our family loves this place!! So family-oriented. Everyhting is so convenient when you have children.....the private beach, the nice beach side in-the-gound pool, the little snack bar. ...no roads to cross or things to lug around. It is in a quiet residental area, but close enough to the attractions of the Point Pleasant Boardwalk to make it hassle free!! The rooms are not fancy, but well-kept and clean...perfect when you have children....but best of all, the staff are warm and friendly people who respond quickly and courteously if you have a request. We have been coming here for 8 years and we plan to come back again!!!!

Room Tip: Call early in the year for your reservations so get your first choice of accomodations.

Within the first 5 minutes of being on the property, the office staff warmly welcomed and introduced us to the hotel. They were very understanding when we had a slight payment issue at the beginning (which we fixed in a jiff).

The rooms are so nice! We walked into our poolside room and were welcomed by warm beachy decor and a kichenette! it has a nice sized mini-fridge, a microwave, sink, and toaster. The room has great lighting and ocean view.

The best part so far is definetely the staff, they are so welcoming and friendly. They're quick to answer any questions.

A few other pluses are the private beach, snack bar, parking lot, and free wi-fi!

Will definetely be coming back!
