“Very Pleasantly Surprised!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

My husband I had planned a trip to Ormond Beach about a month prior to actually taking our trip. We originally booked at a local condo. The day we arrived, we found that our condo was unavailable and had to find somewhere else to stay. We also had our dog with us so it made our task even more difficult. We drove up and down the coast, running in and out of and calling hotels trying to find a place with a vacancy that would also accept our pet. I finally called the Driftwood Beach Motel after about 2 hours of this driving up and down the coast. The lady I spoke with was very friendly and told me that they had one room left. I ran inside and she helped me book this room. They were doing renovations on the hotel at the time and offered for me to see the room before deciding to book it because of these renovations. I thought that was very thoughtful and appreciated her doing this. I saw the room and we decided to stay. It was exactly what we needed. The hotel is right on the beach with great views. The room appeared to be clean. We were pleasantly surprised and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I was very impressed with the customer service I received from the front desk staff. Their attitudes alone would be reason enough for us to return. Also, the hotel is directly across the street from the mini-golf course, which was very convenient. Thank you for a pleasant stay!

Comfortable bed, great staff, nice pool area and easy access to the beach. Great location near good restaurants within walking distance if you are so inclined. The office personnel were very helpful with directions and recommendations of where to eat. They are working on all of the rooms and if they get the rest of the room up to the level of the bathroom and vanity areas they will be marvelous. They are just across the street from a cool Putt-Putt golf course and the kids will love the easy access to the beach. Reasonable prices for the room and it had a kitchenette with a stove/oven, microwave and coffee maker. We will be back.

Family wanted a beach visit. Found this little gem on tripsdvisor. Only room left was a 1 bedroom apartment that sleeps 5. The murphy bed was suprisingly very comfortable as was the queen bed. The resort is beachfront with great morning and evening views. There is a pool that is well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Parking can be somewhat difficult to find in the busy summertime season. The resort does provide 1 BBQ grille for resort guest. Bring your own if you want to grille as the grill provided does get used alot.

Highly recommend this nice little low cost resort. They may not be as fancy as the big resorts, but it's just as comfortable and friendly.

Hotel is smaller and older but renovations are in progress and are making a big difference. The location is great right on the beach with pool and beach access steps away. The staff is very accommodating and very helpful. Would recommend for family trip and look forward to returning again.

Deserves more than 1 star. Our room was clean (and that's a biggie for me) and the staff made us feel so welcome, i.e. very friendly, helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay a great experience. Definitely recommend to those on a budget! Will definitely go back. Thanks guys!

We booked this place for our family trip to the beach. We chose it because it sits on a very nice section of the beach. The issue I have with Driftwood is this: They knew that our room was jacked up and stuck us in there anyway. The overhead light did not work. There was a desk lamp and a floor lamp. The bathroom was a different story. A previous customer had jammed seashells into the tub drain. When you took a shower, the water would fill up past your ankles. Sand and other beach gunk was left in the tub because when the water finally drained, it left behind everything. I am not happy that the management and staff knew about the problems but offered no solution. Being moved to a new room would have been nice or receiving a discount on the room would have worked. This first experience is also the last experience.
