We were referred by the Capt. of the Water Taxi to check out the Drift Hotel, just steps from a stop at Beach Place. We walked over to see a hotel at the tail end of a major renovation. The proud new owner was on site and gave us a personal tour of the property, including a before & after... More

I experienced some confusion on the booking site- The Drift Hotel is where the old Gigi's resort was . The hotel has been totally revamped and upgraded. Not sure why the old Gigi's site is still in active but the Drift is modern and the rooms have been completely redone . Sort of Zen meets South Florida The only issue... More

This place is filthy, staff is lazy, the a/c is noisy, the bed was sinking in the middle. Bath tub very dirty so was the carpet. Had booked fof 4 nights stayed 1. Photos on web dont reflect the truth! The place is falling apart. Only good thing about this place is the location. But I'd rather pay more, travel... More

Ok... I'm trying to remember why did I book this place???? During our on the road travels we alraedy saw some disgusting places... but this... oh no! No thanks! The manager was really friendly, but that's the only positive thing I can say about this place! Our room was located on the second floor with a small lobby in front... More

Location can't be beat near the beach and Las Olas at 1/3 the price. Extremely nice and accomodating manager. Older, cozy and beach-worn but certainly livable. Just think of it like staying in an friend's old beach cottage, not in a fancy hotel room.

The gentleman running the hotel was extremely pleasant, helpful and hospitable. The rooms in the hotel are nothing like the pictures on their website - not even remotely close. Did not expect the Ritz but did expect what was depicted on the website! Decor and room quite disappointiing!

We booked, then read the reviews. We've "roughed it" in Belize and learned that most of our experiences are really more influenced by our own state of mind than the external circumstances, so we decided to keep our reservation - and I'm glad we did. We booked the Paris room but when we got there, the very welcoming manager, Pro,... More

The manager owner is a fawning phony who refused to look at the room or admit it was filthy and argued with me instead of simply cleaning it. When I checked out he argued more with me and again refused to look. The curtains are stained and torn. .. there was a big roach in the room and grunge covered... More

An older hotel that was once set up very lovingly and with Flaire. Each room has a theme such as London, Paris, Nairobi, etc. Unfortunately, no attention is paid to cleanliness. Although these are a very good price for the night and the proximity to the beach are there. But the glasses in the cupboard were used with red wine... More
