The Drifting Sands is a 100-room oceanfront, family-friendly facility in the heart of Long Beach Island.  We are located on 9th street just over the causeway in Ship Bottom.  Our motel is just footsteps from the surf, within walking distance from shops, restaurants, and entertainment; and a brief car ride from outstanding facilities for fishing, boating, sailing, and golfing. What’s more, Atlantic City’s exciting casinos and boardwalk are only 30 miles away.

Guests of the motel can expect unmatched customer service to compliment the convenient location.  Perfectly suited for business and leisure, the motel's amenities include free high-speed, wireless Internet access, free beach passes, and beach chairs and umbrellas for rental.  Beachfront guestrooms and suites feature private balconies overlooking the ocean. 

Our friendly and knowledgeable staff makes every guest feel welcome and right at home.  Visit us to find out why we are Long Beach Island’s “best kept secret.” We are open all year.  Make your reservations today!
