We booked this hotel on the last minute for just one night as we left The Keys a day early. After reading trip advisor it sounded great so I booked the king and queen room. To say we were delighted was an understatement, it was amazing, newly refurbished and immaculate.my only complaint is that we couldn't have stayed longer!!! Regina... More

we took the last room in the hotel, out of desperation cause it was so hard to get a room in town without any reservation. and......here comes the big surprise: beautiful hotel, spacious and really clean rooms , it's less than a minute to the beach, and the best part of the whole thing is the couple managing the hotel...

Not only was this hotel a quarter of the cost of the hotels around it, but everything about it was perfect. The staff was possible the most friendly and above-and-beyond group of workers that I could have ever met. Not only were they personally waiting outside on the fourth of July to make sure that our cars were safely parked... More

We stayed at the Drift previously and had a good experience so was interested in staying with them again in early 2016. For several months their website showed no availability so I emailed them a couple months ago and was told that they would open reservations in May/June. So I have emailed and called them several times in recent weeks... More

The staff was most welcoming, especially Regina, who was like a mama to me. Those people (Al & Regina) really care about the hotel and that shows. Their personal approach was heartwarming, they did absolutely everything to make me feel at home. Those people truly have a heart of gold. I'm used to staying in big hotels (Hilton, Best Western,...),... More

I thought the hotel was extremely clean, beautifully quaint and furnished. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Reasonably priced. Love the place. My ONLY complaint is internet access is only offered outside in common sitting area and not in rooms! They say free wifi, but if you don't mind sitting in heat or rain without coverage from outdoors then your good.... More

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms had been recently renovated, were very clean and the area is quiet. The rooms are cozy and spacious for two people. The queen size bed was comfortable. The hotel is close to the beach, shops and area restaurants. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Fort Lauderdale.

My husband and I went to Florida for the first time last month, and so glad we stayed at The Drift Hotel for our stay. It's at the perfect location very close to the beach, restaurants, bars, and shops! The owners are very nice and they take very good care of this hotel. We were offered beach towels and chairs....
