I stayed at the Driftwood for four nights recently and was very happy with the resort. My room was on the small side but well furnished and comfortable. The two pools were nice along with the beach. The staff were pleasant and helpful. I had read reviews bemoaning the lack of parking but i had no trouble at any time... More

This is a very cool historic hotel. The lounge was fun and inviting the resort is constructed of driftwood gathered in the 1930's. There are bells and unique art through out. It's a warm and happy place to visit. Waldo had great vision. Try the wings at the bar and a cold beer. A great happy hour place to go... More

When you stay here, you must understand WHY you are staying here; it’s not for a plush bed and a 5-star room. The beds (even though new within the past year or so) are marginal at best, and the A/C in most rooms (4-story building anyway) is a loud window units. You stay here because it’s a piece of history... More

We had a cottage for a week here and LOVED it! We only had a few issues none were deal breakers. 1st being we tried to do laundry and was not able to do it due to the laundry room having operating hours.( I'm on vacation not a schedule!) 2nd being parking. We had to park in a 2nd lot... More

So glad you enjoyed your stay, the cottages are some of our nicest units. The parking is difficult, especially on the weekends when the restaurant is hosting live music, as both our guests and the local people enjoy it so much. Hope you didn't have too much trouble finding a place to park. We look forward to you coming back... More

I grew up traveling from Canada to spend spring break here as a kid and was fortunate enough to be able to do the same with my kids. We spend a week here every year and the last visit I wanted to make sure we would continue this tradition and bought a condo at the resort. If you are looking... More

This is not a flashy new resort, but rather a relaxing inn on the beach with tons of character and charm. We stayed in the hotel in room 122A. It's on a grassy knoll overlooking the beach and near the pool and restaurant. This was our second stay and we love the place. Room was a suite with kitchen and... More

My family vacationed here every summer and I can still feel the boards under my feet, recall the smell of a cook out in the breeze way, and the sound of those bells ringing. Was there in July 20, 1969 (age 4) when we landed on the moon. Our room was on the boardwalk facing the ocean. The adults were... More

We where said to be overlooking the beach. And we check in and it's the pool we are overlooking. Then they gave us no direction to the room whatsoever. We found the pool and went to a third floor where the room should be because it overlooks that pool. Walk around and that's not it. I look to the other... More

Very sorry that you were disappointed in the location of your room. The reservation was made for a poolside room, not oceanfront which is substantially more expensive and also was not available on the date your reservation was made. I apologize that the front desk person that checked you in did not make clear to you where your room was... More

It's a very quaint and rustic resort. right on the beach in Vero Beach Florida. There aren't a lot of activities. Nice restaurant right on premisis. Just comfortable if you wanna get away from it all. Our neighbor fed the squirrels so we were inundated with squirrels for an evening. other than that its just fantastic
