This hotel is historic, but updated. It was great with a pool in the middle of the hotel and the beach just steps away. Our room was decorated in true Floridian fashion. We are a laid back couple and just go with the flow and this was a nice getaway.

This place was so cute and reasonably priced. Restaurant and bar were great and affordable. The outside dining can't be beat. Right on the water. Room had full size fridge and stove. The beds and pillows were top notch. Slept like a baby. Could hear the ocean from our room. So much history and in close proximity to other restaurants...

We spent one night here on a trip along the east coast of Florida. This place is amazing - so unique, quirky, beautiful. With numerous rooms and suites to cater for everyone. The on-site bar/pub/restaurant was perfect for one night, for beers and food, with friendly staff and good grub! The views of Vero Beach were stunning. Our room had...

Well, this isn't your typical timeshare resort. Dating back to the 30's this place is pure old Florida. Located on the beach there are 4 building, 2 old and 2 new ( 1980's new). Two pools and a very very active bar, that is packed with locals nearly every day. Music on Sundays and at least three other nights. Food...

This review is based on rooms in Building A. I believe there are better units available so make sure you are not staying in building A. Unit has a kitchenette, no stove. Bedroom is jammed into a closet sized box. Unit is very dated and smells musty. You have to climb over the bed to get out. I'm not very...

The Driftwood was a very different place to say the least. What makes it special are the owners who go there. Some of them have been going for years and years the same week and they all know each other. They were very nice and invited my husband and I to their Happy Hour. We were there right after the...

Thank you so much for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. It's always great to hear from new visitors. Glad the repairs we had to make after Hurricane Matthew didn't hamper your stay with us. Come back again soon! Jeanne L. Radlet, GM

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.
