This is an older hotel right on the beach. We stayed here because my boyfriend had stayed here when he went on family vacations when he was young. The views are amazing and the beach access is great. This is definitely the reason why you would choose to stay at this hotel. While the room was clean, the rooms are... More

We stayed a few days in Driftwood Shores and really enjoyed the view and this hotel. We had two connecting room, one with a small kitchen. Both had a balcony. Service was very nice and rooms well equipped. The indoor swimming pool was fun for the kids with a large jacuzzi for all to enjoy. Very convenient to go down... More

We stayed 2 nights. Every room has a beautiful view of the ocean. We had a King with full kitchen with brand new appliances. Everything was spotless clean. Only down side is the chairs on the balcony need to be a littl more sturdy and bigger but was no problem because we brought our own fold out chairs. Restaraunt is... More

We spent a week total here over two different stays in July. We spent two nights and returned once again for 5 to use it as our base of operations for exploring the coast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and intend to return again in the near future. The rooms were clean, the bed comfy and the shower was not... More

Staff was friendly and very helpful. Our room on the 3 floor was clean and the bed and pillows were just right. The sound if the waves were amazing!! Only request perhaps a ceiling fan to circulate air. FYI, if you plan to eat breakfast at the restaurant go early and make reservations. They ran out of salmon, and the... More

The rooms were well cleaned daily by the housekeeping staff, and there... More

Florence doesn't have any other place that is right on the beach. We stayed in a King with a kitchen, the room of good size. Wish we'd asked for the third floor, but the 2nd floor room was okay, just felt a tad bit exposed when some kids were tossing a ball around in the evening. Bathroom was a typical... More

This property is 30+ years old. It has been relatively well-maintained, but is still somewhat worn. the rooms are spartan, bathrooms are functional but no more. On the positive side, the beds have been comfortable and the linens crisp and fresh. The rooms I've had are impeccably clean. The real appeals are the weather and views. In the summer, mornings...

This was our third time at Driftwood Shores. It's vastly improved over the years, regardless of what the crybabies on this site are whining about. Our room was clean, overlooked the ocean, everything worked fine. The shower took a bit of engineering to get it just right, but after staying in lots of motels all over the place, this seems...

This is the second time I've stayed here while playing in a local golf tournament. Someone else made the hotel reservations so I was sort of forced stay here again. The room we stayed in (rm 334) is supposed to be non-smoking but it reeked of cigarette smoke. This happened last year and the manager said there was nothing she... More
