This is our 4th time staying for the Bike Rally's in Myrtle Beach. The hotel is in a great location and very convenient to everything on Ocean Boulevard. There is a lot of car and trailer parking and they even make a designated area for bikes. I have read some of the negative reviews on this site but I have... More

The negative reviews you are reading are true..and then some! Just got back from a week long stay with my family. We booked off the internet and the pictures looked nice. When we got there the older gentleman at the front desk was very rude and sarcastic. After checking in, we went back to the office to tell them our... More

Ok we booked our vacation in June because the place looked nice and we loved the location. About 2 weeks before our trip i started reading these reviews and became very nervous about this choice. Upon arrival my girlfriend became very nervous because the place looked old from the outside. However once there we could not have been more pleased.... More

We arrived at the hotel in torrential rain (only thing not their fault). NOTE to travelers - there is NO elevator or carts to bring your luggage, etc. up to your room - we were on the 3rd floor of the center building. There is only an elevator in ONE of the three buildings! Unbelievable! My husband and I are... More

My husband and I are staying at the Driftwood this weekend and so far have been pleased. I was very concerned due to the awful reviews but its really not bad. It's old, yes and the outside is sketch. Luckily we didn't have to ride the elevators because we were on the first floor. We had the Boulevard Suite, which... More

Good location but old and nasty. Elevators were scary. Kitchens discussing . Carpets so old weeds grow in it. Rooms stunk real bad. Very disappointed. Pools were small and unclean. Noise at night so bad you cannot sleep drama in the parking lot late at night cops and all. Excellent place for a bunch of drunks or drug addicts that... More

Stayed at this hotel on the recommendation from a friend. Hotel is on the beach and had an oceanfront room. Not bad but not great. Enjoyed our stay but it is about like any of the other hotels at the beach in this particular price range. It is near the boardwalk which made it a good location.

Well we booked online in February for our stay in June, got the room at a great deal, drove 7 hours to get there and they wouldn't let us check in early, they said our room would be ready at 3, it was 3:45 before our room was ready and it wasn't what they showed on the Internet. When we... More

My husband and I were finally having a family vacation with our three kids after two years. We both looked at the pictures and brochure of Driftwood and thought it would be a great place. We got the King Oceanfront Suite (advertised as two bedrooms - one with a king bed and the other with two double). It also advertised... More
