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

We stayed at Driftwood Shores for a friend's wedding and were honestly not looking forward to it based on the reviews and online photos. Fortunately, it was far better than expected. The room was clean (except the dishes) and noise was not as much of a problem as we thought it would be. We were on the 3rd floor and... More

The room was a lot more run-down than I expected from a "resort and conference center." Pics on their website make this look very upscale- not so! There was no A/C in the room, which could get uncomfortable later in the year. The view was nice. Though beachfront,there is quite a distance from the hotel to the ocean. Bring your... More

It was a beautiful wedding on Saturday morning. We had been in Oregon since that Tuesday and it rained every day but the sun came out about one hour before the wedding began. It made for a great experience. Many of the inn's guest watched the wedding from their balconies. The reception was in their hall above Surfside restaurant, very... More

This was our second time staying at the Driftwood Shores. We were on the third floor with an incredible ocean view, though there is no bad room at this hotel since they all face the ocean. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room had a small full kitchen and basic dishes and utensils with a coffee maker and coffee.... More
