Place was convenient location butvthe room was run down and dirty. Broken door handles inside, roaches dead on floor, just overall disgusting. The people who look to live in motel looked pretty rpugh and my son felt unsafe there.

There were no vending machines with food, the beds were like cots with metal frames that rocked back and forth. The TV was hanging off the wall. You could see into the room from the outside because the door had a gap in it. Overall it was the worst place I have ever stayed.

The beach is right out the back door!!!!

Parking was tight. Room very clean

Bugs bugs bugs

Ok, so I knew that it might not be the best place to say going off the price, but it was last minute and only for a night, so I was willing to risk it...... mixed emotions here, location is perfection, the “resort” needs some love, it does appear they are working on it, but they are far from done. The grounds and the view are well worth it, the beds are squeaky and this was just sitting on the bed..... no hanky panky action just a simple sit and lots of noise, could only imagine how bad it would be for the neighbors if there was hanky panky happening.😬 The staff was super nice, great walking distance to food and mini golf, and the most important thing, the beach, steps away. And really quiet! Was laying in bed a realized how quiet it was, no noisy neighbors screaming kids doors slamming, just quiet. So I’m torn, half the room was updated the other half wasn’t, exterior is not great, but potential, the bed sucked and the towels were not the best. But all in all, it wasn’t the worst place I have ever stayed, go with low expectations, if you are like us and there for the beach, it’s perfect, if you like to spend a lot of time in your room, maybe wait till the updates are done

Thw view from this place is breath taking ... it was clean and comfortable and affordable and the staff was nice .. there was a mix up with my room type and the lady at the front desk made up for it and i was able to spend a extra day at rhe beach ... thank you

The place is clean and confortable I add picture nice ocean from for relaxing

Nice place to stay. Will return friendly staff easy access to beach

Seems pretty clean and kept up to me. I can't say much for the pool because I haven't been at it yet but the room is comfortable and has what I need. I can't get the TV to turn on but I didn't care that much right now so I didn't say anything. When I first got here I couldn't get the door open to my room so that was dumb but after trying enough they gave me another room so it's all good for me

When I check in. It was dead bugs in the room. Went to the front office and was switched to a different room. That room was no better. Bed sheet was not the best looking. Look dirty so I went to Walmart to buy new sheets due to by booking online with a third party they was unable to get a refund.

The price was great for an ocean view room and only 10$ more a day for pets. Really nice place!

I understand that for what I pay the facilities are horrible, I pay in a non-smoking area and it seems that neither the Driftwood staff nor the people smoking in the weed pool respect it, I really do not like that cockroaches at all I found in the room. I do not recommend it!

Staff was awesome!! Checked in a little early and they were great! Hotel needs some updates, but overall clean, comfortable beds, hot shower.

Someone came home drunk or high was locked out and was beating the door down. The person inside didnt want him insside. The beach was hard to get to for older folks...gates and steps. Parking lot was so small.

Needs cleaning and a lot of TLC. ( tender, loving, care)
