While many Point Pleasant attractions, restaurants and shops are located near Driftwood Motel, many families flock to the motel for its private beach, heated pool, courtyard and other convenient amenities. Plus, children 12 and under stay free.
Accommodations come in several variations, including an Oceanfront Efficiency Apartment, which provides two double beds, a pullout sofa and eat-in kitchen. The motel offers free Wi-Fi and houses a snack bar, which serves breakfast (pork roll, egg and cheese, bagels, cereal), lunch (hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken fingers) and most importantly, ice cream.

I won't stay here again. I wish I hadn't stayed here at all. The rooms smell of mold, mildew, and urine. The rugs are thread bare and dirty. The air conditioner didn't work, the TV didn't work, there was mold around the shower head, the toilet ran unless you jiggled the handle, and the bathroom sink wouldn't drain. I felt like I was on a bad camping trip. We asked for a different room for our 2nd night. We were given an upgrade poolside at no extra charge. It smelled just as bad. The bath tub didn't drain, which meant the next one to shower had to stand in dirty bath water and that TV didn't work either. We left as soon as we could in the morning. We couldn't stand to be in the room. It is not close to restaurants so that meant driving to eat meals out. The best part of this motel is the private beach area.
This was a very clean hotel. Room was smaller than expected. The ocean front room provided a good view.
The private beach was amazing and the pool was very clean and the snack shop provided great food.
