This was our first time in Florence for over 20 years. We had a great time visiting and purchasing lots at the local antique shops. Driftwood Shores is the only game in town when you want beach side rooms. We started at the bar for a drink to check things out. Small bar and sitting area with great views. The restaurant is small, with great views. Nothing special, you can tell it's an old place that is in need of an overhaul... But not bad. We made reservations for later and went to our room.
Wifi: The free wifi is no wifi. When your that close to the beach... Cellular service is very spotty, so we always choose places with wifi. We called the front desk and they said, when the place is full, all you can do is keep trying. We kept trying until the next morning... When everybody is checking out, it finally let us log on. Unacceptable... Fail
Room: the room was nice, kinda outdated, nothing special, but ok. One lamp was not working and when we plugged in our iPads and phones for their nightly charge... The whole room went dark. As we were trying to find the phone... The power came back on. Upon further inspection of the sockets, you can tell they need replaced. Room 117.
Bathroom: this was the worst, unclean bathroom we've seen in a while. Mold on bathmat, shower curtain, sink drain... And hair on the floor along with just being dirty. See pics. All these pics were taken as we were getting ready for our morning showers... Basically the first time we really used it.
Restaurant: great food, best clam chowder I've ever had. Great views. Like I said before, the restaurant is small and older, but not bad.
Summary: no wifi, scary electrical, and very unclean bathroom. Great food, but I wonder what the kitchen looks like after seeing the rest of the place. Driftwood Shores doesn't have any competition in the area and it shows.
