The location of the resort is excellent. You can walk to the shops, restaurants, and you are right on the beach! The condo was clean and spacious. The history is fascinating and the restaurant was great. The parking is tight but they have an attendant on duty that is extremely helpful. Great stay and will stay again!

We spent 6 nights here in February. I had made reservations several months earlier and was a bit nervous because they do not send email confirmations or require a down payment, etc. However, our room was ready as promised. Our room 124B was well priced, large and clean. It did not, however, have a real window - only sidelights by... More

I love the view, but for the price it should be much, much cleaner. The room is quaint with lovely, old wooden paneling and cabinets that are sticky and filmy like an extended stay motel not a resort.

Stayed here several times. Right on the Ocean, if you rent one of their 2 story units the Ocean appears to go right under the room. Every time you open the door to the room you never know what to expect and we are always pleasantly surprised. Has a great restaurant and is walking distance from several other fine eateries

Thank you for review! The townhouse oceanfront unit you use is a wonderful villa, and so close to the water it really DOES feel like you're in the water. Hope you stay with us again on your next visit. Jeanne Radlet, General Manager More

We rented two suites at the Driftwood. Property was clean and welcoming. We stayed in the old part, but it was still acceptable. Housekeeping staff friendly and we felt safe with our family. It was right on the beach. Would definitely stay there again!

Love the laid back atmosphere and vintage old-Florida look outside while offering modern rooms. Restaurant/bar has good food & the service is generally good. Has 2 pools and is right on the beach. There's a nice spot for breakfast just across the street if you don't want to do any cooking yourself. A one bedroom suite is very spacious--ours had... More

I spend a few days here each year, and this year we are going in March. My family has been staying at the Driftwood since the 1960's, and I wouldn't even bother trying to find a different hotel. We always get a room or two in the old section, facing the ocean. The nights, with the slider doors open, are... More

Have been visiting for years. Wouldn't give it up for anything! Relaxing yet fun atmosphere. You can find us Hanging out at Waldo's, strolling along the beach then to Craven's for a breakfast of coffee and muffin, also sunning and reading poolside or on the beach. We also partake of the many nice golf options nearby or rent a bike... More
