“Lovely location and lovely room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Every body's taste is different but I really liked the style of the rooms. It made a real change from the more traditional styling of most hotels in this price range. The onsite hotel / bar has the most amazing views and the free coffee & fruit water in the lobby is nice a touch. Would definitely stay there again / recommend it to others.

Room Tip: We stayed in building nearest the Ocean - not sure if makes much of a difference but cannot speak fo...

We purchased the Groupon, and returned home from this hotel at 2 am this morning. I love the Eco friendliness, and I get the eclectic feel they were going for in the "remodel", however they missed the mark on a few major things. For one, the beds were horrible and mismatched old mattresses. My husband woke up with horrible back pain, and we ended up sleeping in seperate beds because they were short and uncomfortable. We got a room with two queens because we were oringinally going to bring our two year old, and SO glad we did not. While it is kids friendly, the insulation is so horrible that we were woken up at 6am by the people above us stomping around. Sure they offer fans and earplugs, but that is not something you should need when staying at a quality hotel. We were right next to the ice machine, which was loud and annoying. Our package included the breakfast picnic, and when I ordered it I had to call and remind them that I had ordered it. Not worth the $18. Our final straw came when the people above us came stomping in at 11pm just as we were going to bed, and I called the front desk thinking maybe we could switch rooms, but she was leaving and in a hurry and said "I'll let the night manager know." So at 11:45pm we just decided to make the treck home and get a good nights sleep in our own bed. I have NEVER checked out early from a hotel. We will not be returning.

Im gonna start with saying the hotel staff was amazing, very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent and the rooms were very clean. The shampoo, conditioner and lotions provided were nice, and the citrus water provided in the lobby was delicious! That being said, the rooms were very sparse and cold. Not exactly inviting, and there was a lack of comfortable seating, just a couple small hard cold uncomfortable metal chairs.The floors were cold and there wasn't even a area rug. The people up stairs were so loud, constantly stomping and dragging the chairs around the floor. We could not sleep, and were pretty miserable. Unless we got a similar deal from Groupon we would not stay here again or recommend it to any one!!!

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel, hoping to have a relaxing getaway for our anniversary. Unfortunately our room was very noisy. Looking at other reviews on this site, this issue seems to be a common one. We heard a constant thumping noise until about midnight and again the next morning starting at 6:30am. We complained to the management, but the noise was never successfully quieted. We even had them bring us a fan, but could still hear the noise. Our room was under the restaurant so this may have been a factor. Upon checking out, we mentioned the noise, but staff did not seem to really care. This is a nice hotel otherwise, with unique decor, but unfortunately this noise issue ruined the experience for my wife and I and we will not be returning to this hotel.

My sister and I purchased a Living Social deal for a two-night stay at the Adrift Hotel, and we were bitterly disappointed with the hotel--so much so that we checked out after the first night and went home.

The website depicts a property that is vastly different from what they actually offer. This is what they claim to offer: http://www.adrifthotel.com/photogallery.html but our room looked more like a glorified dormitory with a tree painted on the wall. At least in the dorms, you can't hear your neighbors word for word like we could in our room. The walls are paper thin, and my sister and I were up half the night lying on our rock hard beds, listening to the romantic undertakings of our young neighbors next door. The room also had a mildew smell and felt cold/damp the whole time we were there.

The new paint job and expressive, modern decor is quite fun and quirky but unfortunately paint and recycled furniture do not constitute a remodel, which is what the website claims they have undertaken at this property. Though we were happy to see the TV, DVD player and iPod dock, we were also disappointed in the lack of more common amenities offered in the room--no hair dryer, coffeepot, dresser or even a hook near the sink for our hand towel. And while I understand the environmentally friendly concept of the big bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash/lotion that are shared by all, it's a little uncomfortable to know that other guests had used them previously. Plus, one of the most fun parts about staying in a hotel is taking home the little soaps and shampoos. These are relatively small things that we probably would have just gotten over if not for our total lack of sleep, which is what led us to pull the plug on our weekend.

We did enjoy the free coffee in the lobby. And the staff was courteous and friendly. But they weren't interested in figuring out why we were leaving, which tells me our business wasn't very important to them. In fact, I emailed them with my concerns later, since they didn't care to ask about why we left early, and nobody has replied. Very poor customer service. Even though this hotel is right on the beach, which is pretty cool, I do not plan on ever returning.

Nice, clean and right on the boardwalk and beach.We had a free piza at the restaurant, not worth eating there. High dollar and small amounts. It had just opened so I hope it gets better. Nice views from window seats and nice sized bar. Almost every room has a sunset view. Need to ask for coffee maker and coffee refills in morn. Very friendly service and clean. Stay away from rooms by the stairs, we could tell they would be noisy, but they have the best views.

We bought a coupon for this hotel, so the deal was an extra bonus! We had a welcome package (included) with a bottle of wine and delicious truffles. One breakfast was included with fresh fruit, yogurt, scones and juice.

They have bikes available to use, and a fabulous paved trail which runs about 7 miles through the dunes along the beach. You can ride to the next town for lunch or take a picnic. There is a lovely lit boardwalk about a mile long, perfect for an evening stroll.

We bought a campfire kit for $60, it came in a wagon with 2 beach chairs, 2 blankets, wood-kindling-paper-lighter, a bottle of wine with sealer jar glasses, and a s'mores kit. Such a highlight!

There are stables beside the hotel where we bought a 1 hour trail ride on the beach ($25 each) and it was so beautiful!

The people were friendly and laid back and pets were welcome. There is coffee and water in the lobby, and DVD's to choose from.

The decor is all recycled stuff - inventive and funky. The only negative thing is that the rooms aren't really soundproof at all. We were really lucky to have quiet considerate neighbors, but the hotel does provide earplugs if you don't.

I can't wait to go back… even without a coupon!
