Overall very nice for value

Posted Aug 12, 2017 on Hotels
Lovely room, right on the beach, can't beat that! Room has great character and nice kitchen with comfy beds and furniture. Pools warm and crowded. Later than average check in and earlier than average check out, and housekeeping makes the bed but doesn't bother with anything else.

A unique treasure in Vero Beach

Posted Jul 31, 2017
This hotel is very unique and offers a relaxing, laid back atmosphere. The outside balconies and decks are awesome. You can hear the waves from this room, great music at Waldos restaurant, and are just steps to the beach. This hotel has a old florida feel and you fit right in, in a bathing suit and flip flops. I can't wait to return. Great for families too.

The room was musty smelling, the door was extremely difficult to open and close, my husband had to force it open. The elevator was hot and slow.

Beautiful location

Rooms are good. Access to resident only beach. Only thing I didn't like was they charged for chairs on the beach and did not allow coolers but you had no beverage service either.

Thank you for your comments. The beach service is an outside company not part of the Driftwood. We hope you return again soon.

If you want to experience a historical treasure in FL, this is the place to stay! The beaches were beautiful! The food was great! And the live pool side band on Wed Nights was so much fun! We will be back!

Great beach front hotel

Posted Jul 3, 2017
Pros: The Beach
Cons: The Restaurant menu could have more healthy options. Ask parent before giving kid a refill of soda.
Location: Didn't expect so many gated communities (so no view of beach or ocean as you drive there on A1A). Great for beach.
Hotel is comfortable and children have lots of freedom to roam. Very laid back and casual place. It is a family holiday resort.

Try it and you'll love it!!!

I liked it due to it's age.. It is aged, but has the attractions to keep you busy.. Music , a restaurant,( great food) right on the beach,( not busy, even on weekends) but tough on parking.. ( not enough) , Great sun rises.. Top service, but it's old like some of us, but knows how to show you a good time.. Alternative breakfast places right across the street

Very shabby chic but that is a good thing. Room was a good size. Parking is the only downfall as they let to many non guest park for beach access. The walls and floors let a lot of sound through.

room was much nicer than the pictures on website. We had a partial view of the ocean from the chairs in front of our door. The unit was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Waldos restaurant was great for dinner and live music. Great price for the location!
