I am going to begin this review with the positives. The oceanfront balcony view is wonderful! The pool is clean and beautiful. Now on to the not so good. Upon arrival to our room we noticed it was very dirty. Thank goodness I brought Lysol wipes with me. I was really too upset to go down and complain, and didn't... More

My husband I had planned a trip to Ormond Beach about a month prior to actually taking our trip. We originally booked at a local condo. The day we arrived, we found that our condo was unavailable and had to find somewhere else to stay. We also had our dog with us so it made our task even more difficult.... More

Comfortable bed, great staff, nice pool area and easy access to the beach. Great location near good restaurants within walking distance if you are so inclined. The office personnel were very helpful with directions and recommendations of where to eat. They are working on all of the rooms and if they get the rest of the room up to the... More

Family wanted a beach visit. Found this little gem on tripsdvisor. Only room left was a 1 bedroom apartment that sleeps 5. The murphy bed was suprisingly very comfortable as was the queen bed. The resort is beachfront with great morning and evening views. There is a pool that is well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Parking... More

Hotel is smaller and older but renovations are in progress and are making a big difference. The location is great right on the beach with pool and beach access steps away. The staff is very accommodating and very helpful. Would recommend for family trip and look forward to returning again.

Deserves more than 1 star. Our room was clean (and that's a biggie for me) and the staff made us feel so welcome, i.e. very friendly, helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay a great experience. Definitely recommend to those on a budget! Will definitely go back. Thanks guys!

We booked this place for our family trip to the beach. We chose it because it sits on a very nice section of the beach. The issue I have with Driftwood is this: They knew that our room was jacked up and stuck us in there anyway. The overhead light did not work. There was a desk lamp and a... More

This place is pretty nice for the price. The locaton is awesome. Everything needs updating, but if you are not an uptight jerk, it will suffice. The staff is very nice and helpful. The rooms are more like apartments and I would come back.
