Wonderful and private beach- snack bar with very nice kids working it - pool... What else do you need? Rooms were very clean, and staff very helpful and friendly. Only drawback was the parking, but we survived! We were able to walk to the boardwalk with out too much effort, and we were just far enough away from the crowds.

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.

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...
