Stayed here two nights, Friday January 16 thru January 18, 2015. From the outside, the motel looks nice. The paving was well maintained, there were newly painted parking spaces, the painting on the outside of the motel looked overall clean and new. That's where anything positive ends. The inside is basic and boring. No money has been put into fixing... More

We recently stayed here after years of not coming here. I have been here many time in the past and have always thought the location was incredibly nice. It had gotten run down and so I didn't stay here anymore. Well it has been remodeled and updated now and the rooms all face the ocean for a great view of... More

It was really unfortunate that both of us came down with colds the day we arrived, because we spent most of our three days here over Christmas huddled in bed, sniffling pitifully, while looking wistfully out at the beach, and wishing we could be walking it. It was the main reason we were staying here, after all, as this is... More

We did not stay at this hotel but went to the restaurant/bar for lunch, drinks and to watch the game. It is a beautiful setting on the Oregon Coast, basic decor but fabulous food. We had the steak wedge salad, outstanding. The issue....the service staff are more interested in explaining fire Marshall rules, rigid with where people can sit and... More

When you stay on the coast, an ocean view is a must and the Driftwood Shores does not disappoint. While the property is not new, the rooms were clean and comfortable with some updated features. The desk staff was friendly and efficient.

Being able to walk out your door and be on beautiful driftwood beach at dawn and dusk is worth almost anything. Even having the fire alarm go off around midnight because someone burnt their toast in their kitchenette. The staff was relaxed and parking plentiful. Our extended family regularly uses this hotel as overflow housing for the big family reunions... More

After booking this hotel on my trip from San Francisco to Crescent City.. I needed to reach a point to stay, as my final desitnation was Hood River, Or. I found our place to stay in Florence.. While you can stay at a lot of questionable places along the coast, I did an internet search and found this wonderful place,... More

We spent our Anniversary at the Driftwood Shores Inn. The location was perfect and the view spectacular. Outstanding amenities. They supplied everything one would need. Check out their specials deals. My husband and I would definitely return.

Dirtys rooms. Great view. Terrible service. Rude restaurant employees. That is all I have to say. It may be a nice place, but the way I was treated and what I overheard from an employee, I will never take my family here again. Nor will I suggest this to friends.
