I grew up staying at this hotel during spring break and summer time. As a child and teenager, it was just what we wanted. Now that I have a family of my own, it's a little sub-par for our taste. The high rise condos next door and on the strip tend to cater more towards the spring breakers and college students. I think I am ready to advance to a resort or condo further down the beach because the rooms are very outdated and the traffic is terrible. Good beach location. Too much money for what you get...

Room Tip: Book the largest room you can afford. They are all SMALL....

We stayed at here for 3 nights - GREAT location. We walked to Pier Park everyday! The rooms are clean and very roomy! However, the bathroom is very small and does not have a vanity to sit anything. The parking is very minimal and tight - we were in a SUV and depending on the space - stuck out in the road. Staff is very friendly and helpful! The water was also a brownish color - claimed to be in the entire city as they had just moved to a new system. Beachs are beautiful - just make sure you are on the 2nd floor or beach or you wont have a view - palm trees have grown up and the views are limitied to the beach!

Room Tip: Stay in cbana on beach or 2nd level - there is no elevator!

My husband and I stay at Driftwood Lodge 3 or 4 times a year. We go off-season when the weather is still warm but crowds are down. It has a home away from home feel. We love being able to walk to the pier and Pier Park without getting in a car to fight traffic.

this was the 2nd time we spent a week there, and as always we love it. If you like a smaller, family owned atmosphere, kind of place this is it! We will be back again next year!. We are so glad our friends who have been going there for 20 years turned us on to it!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room anywhere! we always get the suites
