I just got back from stayin at driftwood it was my first trip to myrtle beach and I loved it, The trip was kinda a short notice trip so when we tried to reserve a room at all the other hotels they were all booked so we tried driftwood and they were SUPER nice. They fixed us up with a great room and a AWESOME ocean view. The rooms did need a few minor touches but other than that it was a great trip i defiently look forward to another trip to myrtle beach!!!

It was our first time to the beach and my boys was so excited about going. But we just happened to get there three days before the bikers would leave and it was awful. To much nasty things going on for children and you could'nt hardly move around and no place to park and it was so loud and all they was doing was partying and drinking and smoking dope. It was awful and our room was dirty, smelling, no clean towels and my 11 yr old son found a switch blade knife under the bed in our room and it rained in our window and on top of that the air tore up. Could'nt sleep and all these women showing things they should'nt around children and my husband was right in on all the action of course he likes to drink and look at naked women and take their pictures. I would never go that time of the year again or would I want to stay in the room we stayed in. Stuff I seen and heard down there was sick. Could'nt sit outside for all the drinking and you could smell the pot they was smoking and my son has ASTHMA and people should consider other people, cause not everyone like to do the stuff that went on those 3dys and nights.EXSPECIALLY AROUND CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe the bad reviews I have read about the Driftwood. My family has gone for the past 3 summers and have loved every minute of it. First of all after your first stay they send out coupons for a free night (so the past 2 years we have had our last night there free). The rooms are very clean (every day the friendly housekeeping crew come and clean up), the people at the desk are very accomodating. Both pools are kept very clean, and never too much chlorine (the times I have been there). The ocean front room has an awesome view and the beach is right there. It's not but a short walk away from the Pavilion and beach shops but far enough away so that its not too loud or crazy. I think its a perfect beach spot that I would recommend to anyone!
