Driftwood Shores Resort and Conference Center

Oregon, USA

The hotel

Every room at Driftwood Shores faces the ocean, and that’s what really places it on the map. In fact it’s the only oceanfront hotel for miles. They’ve maximised on this fact with a balcony or deck in every guestroom (along with complimentary WiFi and a kitchen or kitchenette), and a restaurant and lounge flooded with views over the wild sandy shoreline and dramatic Pacific surf. And you have 10 miles of beach-swept coastline starting just steps from the hotel, with the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area promising more sand-themed fun nearby. For a break from the beach, Driftwood Shores offers its ‘aquatic center’, with its heated indoor pool accessorised with a 15-seater hot tub, a children’s pool, and a mini-splash area for little ones, complete with water spray tunnel.

I will never stay here again. The room was very small. Motel 6 has bigger rooms. Very old. This place shouldn’t be called a resort it should be called a motel. The bed only had a sheet and a thin blanket on it. No extra bedding in room.

Hot tub and pool were open, with a 10 person maximum in the area. Room was definitely dated, but clean and everything worked. It was really nice being only a few steps to the beach. Had dinner from onsite restaurant in our room. Descent food. This was our first time in Florence but definitely will be coming back. If they remodeled or updated rooms, would be a wonderful place.

I'd like to come back when they're through with the remodeling but with a commercial kitchen that does not fulfill non-cross contaminated food for my Gluten Free wife, we cannot dine at the Surfside Restaurant.

Very unimpressed paid premium price $128.00 and was appalled that there was only two plastic 4oz water glasses and two papers cups for coffee, A very musty smell to the room. Also there were no chairs on the balcony. Once again I am reminded why I vowed not to stay here in the future. Burned again!!!!
