The floor squeaked with every step, clearly a bad flooring job; both me and my girlfriend have bug bites from the bed; the place looked cheap; the bathroom needed more lighting near the shower; only thing going for it was the view!

As far as I know Driftwood Shores is the only beachfront hotel in the Florence area. It's nestled back about a 1.5 miles off of 101 on Heceta Beach Road and quite a ways away from the Old Town area. Our room had a microwave, a spacious fridge and a wall mounted LED style TV on the wall with the... More

Our family really enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean, well kept, and spacious. The view was to die for. The little kitchen area was great. It was so nice to be able to walk right down to the beach. Wish we could have stayed longer!

My family and went on a week long vacation along the coast. We stayed in many ocean front hotels. This one was the best. The view was amazing and we saw two humpback whales. The room itself had the most comfortable beds during our trip. We had a kitchenette which was great for us to make our own dinner and... More

We stayed at the Driftwood Shores with another family of 4 the last week in March of 2014. The location is great: only an hour from Eugene and it is right on the beach. We stayed in suite 231. It was during spring break so they were quite busy and had to rush to turn around the rooms, I'm sure.... More

Whenever in Florence on business this is where we stay. The hotel is a little north of town which means it is quite but also means there are no other amenities around. The rooms all have a great view but the standard rooms are a little small (fine for 1-2 people but not for a small family sharing a room,... More

People at the front desk are VERY nice and friendly, but the hotel itself could use some TLC. The elevators are scary and incredibly slow. The room was cramped, and i could hear our neighbors through the wall, but the view and sunset was amazing. I travel all the time and these were some of the best beds i've ever... More

We arrived late in the day. The staff were very courteous and helpful. They asked if they could help us to the room and open the door, showed us the amenties, told us to let them know if they could be helpful in any way. The room had two large beds, new paintings on the wall, a nice kichenette with... More

This was our first stop on our honeymoon roadtrip up the 101. Despite the usual Oregon winter weather, we were cozied up in our queen bed room - let's face it, we weren't expecting bells and whistles other than a place to stay for the night away from the town. It was north of Florence and about maybe a couple... More

I stayed here with my family (adults) last week. We requested and were booked in two rooms on the third floor. This is not the new section, but it is very nice. The bedding was good and the view is the best. When we arrived, about 4 PM the sun was streaming through the large balcony door, it was fantastic!... More
