I recently stayed at the Drift Hotel just off the beach near Las Olas in Ft. Lauderdale, and I was very happy with its location, but even more pleased with the room, which was clean and nicely furnished. The staff was very polite and helpful and the owner(Chris) was personable and easygoing. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I... More

My wife and I stayed just one night at the Drift prior to starting our honeymoon cruise. We hope to return to the Ft. Lauderdale area and the Drift will be our choice for sure. Great location, wonderful staff, clean rooms and very comfortable. The owners made all guest feel welcome at breakfast and were super sweet. Recommend the Casablanca... More

Good service. We arrived late and there was an envelope waiting for us with the room key and a nice message. Nice and clean room and bathroom. The Drift Hotel is near the Fort Lauderdale beach and a lot of restaurants. We can recommend this very affordable, little and nice hotel with very nice personell.

Love the chic colonial interior! Spacious, clean rooms and owners are friendly. Very convenient location close to the beach and shops. Thank you Chris and Kim for the upgrade when we came back from Key West. Will definitely stay here again when we're in Florida.

5 of us stayed here prior to a cruise. Beautiful little inn with a very nice courtyard. Owners were very nice and accommodating. A block from the beach and a block from a wonderful Mediterranean cafe. We will definitely stay here any time we come back to ft lauderdale

Not being familiar with the Ft. Lauderdale area all I could do is look at reviews and the map to try to pick a good place to stay. I can truly say this was a perfect location. Short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. Great price and honestly I'd prefer to stay here then the over priced hotels right... More

The big plus of this hotel is the location. Just across the road from the beach makes it a good choice. The staff are friendly plus not being in a chain hotel is always a advantage for me. Don't expect big hotel frills, but a clean decent room in an attractive courtyard setting. One point to improve is the parking... More

Very comfortable, clean room. Hosts are very welcoming. Quiet location, with pleasant courtyard. One block from the beach, and beach chairs are provided. A short walk to the water taxi. Would definitely stay again.

This 2-story hotel is in a great location. Just 1/2 block from the beach and much more affordable than the high-rise hotels nearby. They have a limited number of free parking spaces (first come first served). Most anything you want is within walking distance. There are many restaurants and bars within 5 blocks. The hotel staff (Al & Regina) is... More
