Great location. Good restaurants within walking distance including Pier Park. The beach is just steps away ( cushion and ubrella rentals are about $22 a day) Water activities boothes are available on the beach, (jet ski, parasailing) and a very spacious beach area. Very family friendly.

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.

Very clean. Friendly staff. Convenient location. Great beach. Small rooms. Only 2 blocks from Pier Park which has a variety of restaurants, shopping, movie theatre, and park. Wal-Mart and Target also just a few blocks away. The downside is very narrow parking spaces, and a lot of traffic on the road making it difficult to enter and exit. You must... More

So I enjoy Driftwood Lodge because it has always been very family based and relaxing. I wish I could say that it was this way this year but I would be lying. From drunk people at the pool playing their own music way to loud to adults dancing in front of children like they were at a club. To the... More

We have been regulars at Driftwood for many years. This summer marks on 9th year in a row. Mainly due to the family atmosphere. This past trip was anything but. Very loud music, inappropriate dancing, and ridiculous amount of alcohol being consumed. These issues were brought to drift with attention, yet Driftwood did not Rectify any of the above. This...

Aaaaahhh. Look forward to this week every summer. This place is so relaxing. Checked in on a Sunday, greeted by friendly, familiar faces from previous visits. Got our usual cabana room: roll out the door and there's the beach. Chilled, sliced watermelon every day at 1pm. Movie night on Thursday with Lenny's homemade peanut butter fudge. Dawdling over books while... More
