“LOVE THIS PLACE!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

I have stayed here every year for the past 10 years. It truly is my home away from home. Having the beach, pool and snack bar only steps away from the room is perfect for people with children! Excellent staff, very friendly, very clean! I recommend this place to everyone I know and they all come back and tell me how much they love it too! Highly recommend!

So people say the best place on earth to vacation is Disney World, but this JERSEY GIRL disagrees!!!! The best place on Earth is the Driftwood Motel in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. This place is not only family owned and run but when your there you are part of the family!!! There is NO place on earth I would rather stay then the Driftwood!!!! From the private beach and heated pool to the food stand, you couldn't ask for a better vacation spot then the Driftwood!!! Located only 10 blocks away from the boardwalk this Motel has everything you could possibly ask for the perfect family vacation and more!!!! Thank you for all the wonderful memories we have already currently had and all the new ones to come!!!!! ************ A++++++++++++++ ********************
This is my home away from home!!!!

My family and I love staying at The Driftwood. There is a private beach, pool and snack bar all within a few feet of the motel. The rooms aren't the most spacious, but they are clean. Everything is in walking distance…the boardwalk is a long walk, but it is doable. Pt. Pleasant is beautiful and the nightlife is fun.

This is our second year going to the Driftwood. We went last year for 5 nights, increased this year to 7 nights and just rebooked for next year for 9 nights. We go with a large group, about 19 kids and 21 adults and have a blast! The location is great, right on the beach with pool. The kids are able to run back and forth between the pool and beach and you always feel safe. The beach is private so in the late afternoons you have the whole beach to yourselves. At night, there are tables where everyone can eat and hang out. The rooms are a little outdated, but the staff is Amazing. It is family owned and Sam or Betty Ann will help you with anything you need. They take pride in the hotel. It is a short walk to the boardwalk. The snack bar which is open during the day is great. This was a great find! You can't beat the setup.

Room Tip: All the rooms are setup different so look on the website for accommodations. We love the oceanfront...

This year was our 8th year coming to the Driftwood for our firm's summer outing. The staff is great and now known on a first name basis. This year the Driftwood went above and beyond on helping us with our outdoor BBQ. Lori is an absolute pleasure to speak with on the phone and look forward to speaking to her again next summer!

Love love this motel! It's right on the beach and you don't have to leave at all. There is breakfast and lunch that you can buy at very reasonable prices, with outdoor seating for your convienance The rooms are spacious and clean. There is also a pool which worked out great for me with little kids. I can't say enough about the staff, they really are there to please their guests. Highly recommend!!
