This is an excellent small-family owned hotel with two floors and all rooms looking out at the beautiful white sandy beach and blue water and waves of the gulf. It is near the great shopping mall at Pier Park and plenty of restaurants around to choose from. The owner is on-sight and him and his family and staff are very... More

This place never fails to be just what I need. Not fancy but has that old Florida feel. Two weeks wasn't long enough. Clean, small, no crowds, wonderful beach, great staff and wonderful owners! The cookout was superb!

An oldie but goodie, well kept and well run ocean front property. Staff are friendly and helpful. There are activities, places to curl up with a book, a glorious beach, a deck where everyone meets at sunset for cocktails The location is a short walk from a fantastic shopping area and the pier. Reasonable cost.

Although not new it was kept immaculate w/lovely refurbished appointments, comfy beds, kitchenette, new tv w/cable. Wow! The staff were precious! Especially Ms. Suzie who listened to our sad tale and made sure... More

This hotel is retro and has old Florida charm and I loved it! We were given great service and loved how close it is to Pier Park and Miracle Strip Amusement Park. We parked the car when we got there and never got in it again until it was time to drive home... we walked everywhere! The staff always had... More

This place has something for everyone. From young couples to retirees, you feel at home and at peace. There can be so many kids you can't count but there is never a problem. Kids have loads to do. Every afternoon there are competitions for them and the staff makes them feel like they are their best friend. Although it always... More

My sister and I are in our 60's. We used to visit the Driftwood when we were kids. Several years ago we rediscovered it and visit for a week every summer. We love the family feel of it and the fact that the Gilmore family and staff give such attention to their guests. We always get a cabana room so... More

We were fortunate to find a vacancy at this hotel during a busy weekend. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and the location was excellent. It is not an upscale place but it's very reminiscent of the old PCB before the condos took over. It was nice.

I managed to get this hotel for 90.00 a night. I chose the cabana room and the location is perfect. Ground level walk out to the beach. The rooms are not super clean as everyone is stating. The are just ok. The beds are not comfortable and the floor is sticky. The staff is very friendly and they let us... More

After calling around what felt like every accommodation place in Homer I found driftwood. Our luck couldn't have been better. Excellent facilities, clean rooms and linen, friendly staff and conveniently located.... More
