We had a very pleasant stay at Drifting Sands. Great location right on the beach, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful view even on the first floor. Will definitely visit again! Thank you Drifting Sands for the rejuvenation weekend away!

Great location, friendly staff. Incredibly overpriced rooms for what you get. Outdated rooms. It's cheaper to stay at the Bellagio

The Premium Ocean Front Rooms are worth the money! Check in and Check out was easy. The customer service at the front desk could have been better.

Right at the beacH very comfortable room and clean

Wifi didnt "reach" our room. Otherwise, it was great, no issues or problems. We were even able to switch rooms after realizing we could not see the beach due to the dunes. So we went from the 1st floor to 3rd.

Staff was very friendly! Room was super clean and big!

The beachfront building is awesome. Private balcony. I kept the sliding door open all night long and listened to the waves! Its a busy area...but near the hotel is quiet especially that building. There's a mini sink with fridge and microwave. I brought my own kcup coffee maker..they only have a little drip one. Very comfy bed and pillows! Towels were a little scratchy..maybe bring your own. Very nice!!

Beautiful balcony view of the ocean friendly helpful staff. Anything you need is within walking distance

The listing on Orbitz is misleading as to the location of this property. While they tell you their physical address is in Ship Bottom, Orbitz states it is located in Beach Haven which is a good 20 minute drive away. If you want to be in Beach haven, expect to drive from the hotel each day...Otherwise the hotel and staff were all very nice and it's great to be steps from the ocean.

Perhaps they can give more time on badge access to guest on day in check out.

It was conveniently located and reasonably priced.

We didn't have an ocean view but we close enough to the beach that it didn't matter. Staff we very nice and helpful. My only complaint was that we didn't have internet because the signal was very poor from the building we stayed in (Ocean Breeze).
