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

The big billboard of the property was definitely when the resort first opened. It truly is showing its age & could use some updating. And, as mentioned other reviews, request the top floor as you can hear your neighbors above you well. Other than that, wow...we had a great time!!! The staff was great and we were able to check...

This was our first time in Florence for over 20 years. We had a great time visiting and purchasing lots at the local antique shops. Driftwood Shores is the only game in town when you want beach side rooms. We started at the bar for a drink to check things out. Small bar and sitting area with great views. The... More

We stayed at many hotels up and down the oregon coast and this was the worst. It is not a resort by any means and very over priced. The view is nice- but you can get the same or nicer view at a better hotel. Not much to do in the area. The rooms are outdated (and we were in... More

All the rooms at this hotel have ocean view rooms with balcony or patio. Huge beach area for the kids and grassy area where they can run. The rooms are older, but looks like they have made a few upgrades. Microwave and refrigerator in room. Room was clean, however floors sounded really creeky There are not many hotels to choose...

Didn't start off on the right foot. We arrived a little early, so I wasn't surprised that our room was not ready. The staff person did offer us a pool key and towels while we waited. She told us that cell service is spotty there (I had no service at all), so we could check back in about an hour.... More

Has a 1 foot deep kiddie pool, 5 foot deep regular pool, a very large hot tub and a sprinkler play area all indoors. Also has an arcade room( 75 cents each). Right on the beach. Great location and lots of options. Rooms were very nice, kitchens are a great way to save money along with all the kid activities... More

Great location, amazing views, older looking small rooms. I asked at the front desk if they had any renovated rooms, they offered me one for an additional $10. The room was still older looking but the view from the room more than made up for it. When I made the appointment, I specifically checked for wi-fi because we needed to... More

The location is the only one right on the beach in Florence. The kitchenettes are handy and the rooms are comfy with good beds. However, the thinnest of walls creates a situation in which noise is a major inconvenience. Big Foot and his family, in the room above us, had jumping jack contests, relays, etc. at all hours. The first... More
