Driftwood Shores has a great view of the Pacific Ocean from every room on the grounds. There is also a nice long beach you can walk on (if not too windy) that extends for miles. However, the receptionist checking us in was not exceptionally pleasant and was kind of short and to the point. Maybe just a long day as... More

We arrived at the Driftwood Shores after a long drive north from Arcata I was immediately disappointed to see that the 'resort' I'd been looking forward to looked run-down and like a cheap motel. The reception area did nothing to quell my fears with staff who were bruske and verging on the unfriendly and a ticky-tacky shop area that looked... More

First of all I want to say that most of the staff are exceptionally helpful and welcoming, the property is well-laid out with many delightful appurtenances. I stayed here twice, and I plan to stay here again, but I've learned that negotiation is required. The first visit was perfect: I received a small discount (single;middle-aged;female=well-behaved lodger), top floor room was... More

The good; all rooms have an unobstructed ocean view, friendly staff, very clean rooms and great pool area with hot tub, play area for kids *and* it's handicapped accessible with lifts! The not so good; we had a coupon for a one night stay and our room was the size of a cracker box! One double bed and the only... More

We stayed at driftwood shores resort for two nights in July 2013. We were all together 6 people (3 couples). We have rented three bedroom condo. The condo was very well furnished with all modern interiors. The kitchen was well equipped. We got really nice view from our room as well as from common living area along with a large... More

I stayed here before in 2007 and it hasn't changed much. This is a lovely hotel, with lovely views of the pacific. Right on the beach, ideal for a stroll. We ate at the restaurant which was quite expensive but it's a captive audience as there is nothing around unless you want to drive into Florence itself. Food quality is... More

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
