If you are looking for an escape from the chaos and high pace life, Driftwood is the perfect place to slow down and feel like you are living a simpler life. We own a timeshare with Wyndham Resorts and could stay just a mile up the beach for free, but our kids love and demand the nostalgia of this 50...

The Driftwood Lodge is a partner property with the Osprey Hotel (adjacent). In fact, they use the same office (at the Osprey) and guests can use the amenities of either property. When we were there (October 2016) and the beach was relatively quiet. Property was older, but clean and well maintained. Staff were friendly and competent. Room (including small kitchen)...

We spent Saturday night there and it was just a perfect weekend. The three pools, hot tub, the large sitting areas and location made it so enjoyable. Clean, safe and very family friendly. Our granddaughter made a bracelet and we had our night meal from the tike bar so we could be on the beach at dark to enjoy sunset...

We were headed to FL and decided we needed some beach time. We started looking for hotels on the FL coast while still in Mississippi, and by the time we found this room we were frankly just grateful to have found anything.

We were at the driftwood lodge for a full week for a family/business trip. Even though the decor is a little stock in the 90, the location and amenities were above expectation. The staffs was great and helpful and room were large and clean. I strongly recommend this resort for a family vacation on a budget.
