This place is absolutely awesome, the rooms are a bit outdated but with the pool, snack bar, and private beach- why would you be in the room! Customer service is great, needed a few extra pillows at about 1 am and without any questions asked the man at the front desk went and fetched a few. Snack bar is handy and prices are not all that bad. The beach is well laintained so if you want a day relaxing in the sun it's there. Or sit pool side while gasping at the ocean views? You'll love it! I will most certainly be visiting there again in the near future!

We have been staying at this motel for the last 11 years. It is a great location and perfect for a girlfriend getaway! The staff is friendly and their Taylor, egg and cheese sandwiches are the best! The only slightly negative is that the rooms could use a little updating. We don't spend a lot of time on them, so I don't mind so much, but just a suggestion!

The Driftwood was a delight! The pool and deck area was comfortable with a beautiful ocean view. The snack bar had affordable snacks, delicious breakfast sandwiches and coffee. The room was immaculate.

Our first 4th of July weekend at the shore- what a great place to stay! Right ON the beach and the pool is great. Room appeared to have been recently renovated and was cool with the AC. Very clean. Outdoor shower would have been a nice amenity (they said it is coming soon). So nice to sit at the pool/snack bar patio in the morning, eat breakfast and enjoy the beautiful ocean view. The front desk could not have been more helpful- from providing directions to the drugstore (thank you!), to helping with parking, which can be tricky but if are staying there, they will get you a spot! Great place for kids and adults. Located away from the noise and crazy traffic. A really nice shore motel. We would definitely book again. Thank you for a great 4th of July!

I booked this place on a whim and very very last minute because if the reviews in this site, very over priced for the quality of rooms as others have said, but someone has to pay for the owners mercedes S65 AMG($100,000+) the pics on the website have one of a chair rental, the guy at snack bar said no we don't do that go into town to buy some($100 more for chairs) when I have 10 at home but didn't want to lug them, the pool was supposed to be heated but was told the heater isn't working , it's was clean though, the beach was nice, 10 minute walk to boardwalk passing nicer hotels probably cheaper too, but the real issue was after returning to the room with wife and 2 young kids, the parking lot is swarmed with police cars, a domestic dispute between two alcoholic trailer park trash couples, and my room was in the middle of theirs, the next morning they went at it again and I thought they were going to come through the wall, screaming and cursing and then had the audacity to ask me what my problem is, and the owners let them stay, shame on them, wouldn't return for free!

This was our 10th annual school's out visit to The Driftwood Motel. The staff is very accommodating. The location is convenient to the boardwalk yet far enough away from the noise. The private beach area is kept clean, with the motel being oceanfront. There's also a very convenient poolside snack bar.

Room Tip: Call early in the season for the oceanfront rooms as they fill up quickly.

First, the location, ON THE BEACH!! not across, not near but on. No first ,the staff and management.I am treated like a rock star,like a family member (truth is they treat every one this way).The layout is perfect, snack bar left, pool right,beach and ocean dead ahead. Ocean front room with a balcony great ,if your lucky enough to get one.The rooms are clean and comfortable.Snack bar has great coffee and I love the chicken fingers.I have been going for years and they are just as happy to see as I am to be there and see all my favorite people.
