We loved our stay here. I have to say, it’s nothing fancy. It’s very dated and the room even had an odor from the sea. However it is so clean, the staff is in point, it’s quiet and family-friendly, and the location is PERFECT. We had the beach front cabana room. LOVED IT! (See the pics of our view. We were directly on the beach. I sure hope we get to come back.

We love the Cabana Suite. The bar and grill have good food. The watermelon and games at 1 pm are so much fun for all. Movie night with popcorn and fudge!! The outdoor kitchen!!! Shuffleboard, ping pong, corn hole toss and connect four are fun for the whole family. Oops forget the checkers and ring toss!

We had reservations but when we arrived they put us behind the maintenance building where we could not see the beach or the ocean. we complained and asked to be moved but they said that was the last room. We then asked for a refund of our deposit, the owner refused so we left. Being very upset since we had driven all day we will never return to those uncourteous people.

We stayed for 2 nights at Driftwood. The place is older, but nicely remodeled and very clean. Great location, great staff. The pool is warm and clean. The Pier area of downtown is within walking distance.

The room was really cute and we loved that it was right on the beach. It has a camping type feel since you have a grill and picnic table. It is walking distance to Pier Park and lots of restaurants and shops. The heated pool was great! Only thing that was not that great were the beds. They were not very comfortable.
