It was lovely & we had a fabulous time. Resort staff were lovely, 2 pools & its right on the beach. We will definately be... More

The Driftwood Inn and Hotel was an excellent location and the immediate area was very clean, tidy and well service. Parking can be a bit tight though although there is quite a large overspill car park.

We stayed in a ocean front room 2nd level and we loved it. The balcony with the wooden chairs was my favorite part. The place is rustic and very unique. There is plenty of places nearby to eat and shop. Would definitely go back. The staff was very friendly.

The pools are warm, the rooms are clean and inviting, laid back atmosphere, right on the ocean! Wake up to coffee and watch the waves from your balcony. Walk the beach at night picking up sea shells and watch the crabs scamper from your flashlight. Great location lots to do and great places to eat, including Waldo's eight at this... More

My husband and I spent the 1st week of June at this property. We will NEVER go back!!! We did an exchange through Interval International and we do not feel this resort meets the criteria for II.

Mother-daughter trip to the Driftwood. The place is very charming and has a lot of character! The Waldo's restaurant is delicious and the live music makes for a good time. Great location right on the beach and walking distance to lots of other restaurants, dessert shops and breakfast places. The room could use a few updates but it was clean... More

Loved staying at Driftwood for two weeks every Easter break from 2009 to 2013 with our young sons. Great for families, friendly staff, all charming shops on Ocean Drive both reasonable and high end that makes this place with its Spanish Bells a great vacation property. You get to clang the bell when you leave the resort and the sunrise... More

This is the oldest landmark in Vero Beach. The ocean right there with a beautiful white sand beach. Pool well maintained and clean. We will be returning next year again for sure. Looking to relax this is a great location for that. No complaints at all. You will not be disappointed.

We stayed at The Driftwood on recommendation from some friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Previously we stayed I some very upmarket hotels but this resort ticked all the boxes without any of the stuffiness. The staff were fun and friendly, cracking jokes while also being extremely efficient. Our apartment was well equipped,clean and comfortable. A very pleasant stay.

Funky, eclectic oceanfront resort with two of its buildings listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. 100 rooms and suites of varying sizes all with some kitchen facilities. Old Florida at its best, rocking chairs in front of every unit to gaze at the ocean while enjoying a beverage from the on site restaurant, Waldo's, the last of the Great American Hangouts! With 9 buildings on the property, there is something to please nearly every taste. Located right in the heart of the beach business district there are more than a dozen restaurants and lounges within walking distance and a newly renovated city park right next door with wonderful playground equipment for the kids.
