So I'm a little biased bc this is my hometown! It's the happiest, loveliest place on earth! We love to escape big city living in the Carolinas and enjoy each breath at the Driftwood Inn! It's within walking distance of all things casual/beachy and high-end is available, if you're looking for fancy. Perfect beach escape!!!❤❤

If you enjoy historical, with modern convenience this is a place for you. Steps from the beach and a very good restaurant named Waldos with a great view of the Atlantic. My wife and I stayed the month of January and had a great time. There is shopping just across the street and many restaurants within walking distance.

Don't stay in their cheapest room! They truly need a makeover! We stayed in a 1 bedroom with a kitchen and 2 bathrooms right off of the check in area. We really enjoyed the unit (F116) and had no problems with it inside. The main parking area outside the unit is where anyone is allowed to park that goes to...

Thank you for your review, we always appreciate hearing from our guests. Glad you liked your room, the cottages are some of our most popular suites. Parking IS a problem although we do have three lots to accommodate our guests, but sometimes that means parking in the farthest lot from your room which is what it sounds like happened to...

This hotel is historic, but updated. It was great with a pool in the middle of the hotel and the beach just steps away. Our room was decorated in true Floridian fashion. We are a laid back couple and just go with the flow and this was a nice getaway.

This place was so cute and reasonably priced. Restaurant and bar were great and affordable. The outside dining can't be beat. Right on the water. Room had full size fridge and stove. The beds and pillows were top notch. Slept like a baby. Could hear the ocean from our room. So much history and in close proximity to other restaurants...

We spent one night here on a trip along the east coast of Florida. This place is amazing - so unique, quirky, beautiful. With numerous rooms and suites to cater for everyone. The on-site bar/pub/restaurant was perfect for one night, for beers and food, with friendly staff and good grub! The views of Vero Beach were stunning. Our room had...

Well, this isn't your typical timeshare resort. Dating back to the 30's this place is pure old Florida. Located on the beach there are 4 building, 2 old and 2 new ( 1980's new). Two pools and a very very active bar, that is packed with locals nearly every day. Music on Sundays and at least three other nights. Food...

Funky, eclectic oceanfront resort with two of its buildings listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. 100 rooms and suites of varying sizes all with some kitchen facilities. Old Florida at its best, rocking chairs in front of every unit to gaze at the ocean while enjoying a beverage from the on site restaurant, Waldo's, the last of the Great American Hangouts! With 9 buildings on the property, there is something to please nearly every taste. Located right in the heart of the beach business district there are more than a dozen restaurants and lounges within walking distance and a newly renovated city park right next door with wonderful playground equipment for the kids.
