This is an amazing place! the beach is foot steps away! the pool is amazing as well. The rooms are pretty nice. Betty Ann is the sweetest woman ever. she knows everything. At the beach there is a lifeguard, which my family loved Tim! This was my family's first time and we loved it! We wish we could stay longer!...

This is my family's 3rd year staying at the Driftwood. the staff couldn't be nicer Sam and his brothers and sister are always so accomodating to our every need. It's a family run business and they just "get it" when my family (30+ of us) come in for the week. The pool/ patio area is on the beach and a...

My family and I have been going to the Driftwood for years and have always had a great time. We stopped going for a couple years and just went back this July 23, 24, and 25th. It is family owned with very friendly staff. Great place to go because it is a short walk to the boardwalk, the beach is...

The location is great and the private beach is wonderful . The rooms need updating . While it seems the carpets were replaced you can tell the hurricane damage and furniture has not been replaced . Also there were dead Mosquitos in the room and flies in the kitchen . I did not expect luxury , but for more than...

This was our annual girlfriend's vacation- 3 nights midweek- 2 double beds. If you're looking for 5 star keep going- but if you're main purpose is to be right on the PRIVATE beach then this is the spot. This is a very basic motel- no coffee maker, no clock, no phone, no restaurant There is a mini fridge. I brought...

Our family just came home from the Driftwood. We have never felt so comfortable so fast in any hotel/resort before. The brothers ( owners) could not have been more accomodating as well as their help around the compound. Betty Ann was always offering her help and busy keeping the place tidy. Their deck, tables, adirondack chairs and best of all...

This was our first trip to Point Pleasant and what an adorable beach town! The Driftwood is an older property, as are many in the area, but it is well kept and very clean. The pro's for this property-pleasant, helpful staff, small private beach with no beach fees, cute common courtyard area with plenty of seating, umbrellas, picnic tables-all with...

I absolutely love the Driftwood!!!! It is directly on the beach, but best of all the beach is private. The rooms are well kept, the grounds are very clean, the pool is large and beautiful, there are many patio sets to relax, and there is a breakfast/lunch hut which cooks the BEST food. We go every year and we are...
