This was our second year staying at Driftwood. Last year we stayed in the beachside Cabanas when we brought our kids and those rooms are right on the beach. This year for our 10th Anniversary we went back without the kids and stayed in an upstairs King Efficiency. This is an older hotel and some people might prefer the newer built tower hotels, but this place is family owned with lots of personal touches you won't find other places. They knew it was our Anniversary and when we got in our room there was a pair of wine glasses for us, filled with candies and sitting next to Driftwood t-shirt. There was always a staff member either sweeping or washing sand away or maintaining the grounds. Throughout the week they have contests, events, movies and more which only strengthens their family atmosphere. Plus, you can't beat the price, especially for a hotel that is within walking distance of the pier and Pier Park. I highly recommend this places and we will definitely be back.
