This was the first place I ever stayed based solely on advice from TripAdvisor. I am thrilled I stayed here. I took the advice to stay in a Cabana Room. Excellent, clean, quiet, convenient to the beach. Met some great people, was able to walk to many TripAdvisor restaurants and bars. Never used my car. Will be back many times.

Our family stayed at the Driftwood Lodge for 4 days over the college spring break. Was very happy the hotel is very family oriented. No crazy kids, except our baseball team boys that stayed in beachfront rooms. The boys were able to use the hotel laundry to wash their informs on a daily basis. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.... More

We only stayed one night but the staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were nice and clean, and the price was not outrageous. All of their rooms face the beach, which is very nice. Would definitely stay here again! Only gave it 4 stars because it wasn't anything fancy, but still a great place to stay.

Overall family fun place to stay, we have enjoyed coming to The Driftwood Lodge for years. Hope many years still to come and what a safe, clean place to enjoy & relax with family & friends. Great attractions close by along with plenty of wonderful places to eat.

We stayed here the last week of July 2013. I thought I left a review, but I guess I didn't. We love staying at the Driftwood/Osprey Motel. The staff is so friendly and the rooms and grounds are always clean. They offer so many little things for families. Movies on the sundeck,watermelon,games and my kids love the surf camp!! They...

We visited the week of August 23rd, 2013. Everything was super nice. It is an older place to stay, but that doesn't take away from anything the hotel has to offer. All the employees were super nice.

Drove up from Orlando to stay here for a coupla nights. Great place in a great location, hard to get a deal as it's so popular. Well looked after by the friendly staff on reception who reckoned we were only the second group of Brits they'd encountered staying there - such a secret! Lots of bars and restaurants around the...

Throughly enjoyed the 4 night stay. Great location right on the beach. Rooms are very clean and spacious. Kitchen was well stocked. Would recommend taking a non-stick skillet. I had my doubts when booking as the hotel is older. Would certainly stay again.

This place was exactly what I was looking for! We are not the "ritz-Carlton" type, we like homey, quaint, CLEAN, and location location location. That is just what we got at the Driftwood. First off-we had booked a few months in advance and about 2 months prior to arriving, our bank notified us that our accound had been compromised and... More

We stayed here in October 2013. I was looking for a family owned place that was on the beach. I came across the Driftwood Lodge on line. We were not disappointed. The room and grounds were very clean. We liked being able to walk right out to the beach. The only thing I would change is in the bathroom. I... More
