We have stayed at several other places in Florence, but this was our first visit to Driftwood Shores. First impressions: outstanding ocean views and very clean & tidy room. We were on the ground floor and were literally steps from the beach. What a treat! In the past, we had to drive, find public parking, and trek across sand dunes... More

It is just so nice to be able to sit and watch the ocean and today was special as the whales were coming back from Baja en route to Alaska. They were so close to the beach. We saw them breaching and spouting everywhere from our table. Oh I forgot.....breakfast was not bad either. The staff are always very courteous... More

We rented the 3 bed/ 2 bath suite. The room has been recently updated with flat screen tv's, granite counter tops. The bed was very comfy and the sheets were excellent. We have stayed here for years and have always been happy. Front desk staff was helpful and friendly. The pool, hot tub and kiddy pool were great. The view... More

Well, you could see the ocean - which we liked. We never went out to it as it was too cold and windy. We were in a large suite - living room/full kitchen and bathroom in one room and bedroom/bath in the other room. This place is an older and somewhat updated hotel. They do have HD TVs - my... More

I only gave this hotel a 2 because of the view. We arrived a little early for check in by about an hour. We were told there was a ground floor room available or we could wait about a hour for a 2nd or 3rd floor room. Having never stayed there before we opted for the room that was ready.... More

The room was beautiful, we had it made with our great view... but we had a lot of issues along the way. One, I ordered the romance package for my fiancé and I, and I told them we were going to have early check in, and they were supposed to have our champagne and glasses, waiting in the room for...

Mom found this place, and took us all for a family vacation. 18 of us total!!! Mom got us all rooms with kitchens, which was nice although I personally didn't cook anything. The beds were comfy, the rooms were clean. Everything worked. We had a third floor room and I loved being able to see the ocean from the sliding... More

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
