“Great family vacation!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

Our family has been staying at the Driftwood for 4 years. We started with just a weekend vacation in September but now stay 4 days and 3 nights in the summer. We just returned last night from another great trip! The staff is very nice. The rooms need to be updated but they are clean. We had maid service with fresh towels and cleaning every morning. They even arranged my daughter's stuffed animals and blankies on her bed! Very cute! The last time we had that was in a Disney resort! My daughter left her ipod charger in the room and the staff is mailing it back. Parking is tight but we always get a spot. The pool is nice with lots of lounge chairs. The snack bar is convenient and there are tables with umbrellas so you can sit outside and enjoy your meal/snack. The private beach is nice. You can leave your "stuff" at the beach when you head up for lunch. There is a rinse-off shower. There is a bathroom with a shower near the snack bar. It is about a ten minute walk to the boardwalk. Lots of great restaurants nearby.

The Driftwood is a diamond! We have been going for three years and will be coming back in the future. The rooms are clean, the staff is great, super close to the pool, beach and boardwalk. I have 3 kids and they love every minute.

This place is absolutely awesome, the rooms are a bit outdated but with the pool, snack bar, and private beach- why would you be in the room!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!
