Historical Traveler Reviews Driftwood Shores Inn Florence
Two thumbs way up.
What a pleasant and relaxing place. Right on the beach, every room beachfront, it was just so perfect and pleasant. Florence is a casual area, so even though Driftwood Shores bills itself as a resort property, it is as casual and comfortable as its surroundings. We spent four nights here in July 2004, and greatly look forward to returning. It's quiet, it's slow paced, and the view is unbeatable.
Worst Ever Hotel Experience
With years of countless stays at hotels throughout the US and abroad, we have never before encountered the shocking Attack, Accuse and Humiliate customer service tactics that were utilized by the Driftwood Shores Inn in Florence, Oregon. All this in order to avoid their taking responsibility for a mistake they made and making a price adjustment. This is no way to run a hotel. We found this experience extremely upsetting and demoralizing, completely ruining our enjoyment of this trip. Stay at this hotel at your own peril. If someone makes a mistake that hurts you, the staff will blatantly lie and defame you to save their rear, management will stand behind them, and none of them can be trusted.
The "gem" of the oregon coast...
Driftwood shores is our "home away from home" and we wouldn't have it any other way! My family and i have been out there many many times to visit my aunt (hi teresa) and staying at driftwood is a must---it just wouldn't be right if we didn't. We always stay in a suite with a kitchenette and two queen sized beds. did i mention that ALL rooms have an ocean view?!?! it is gorgeous, and the best part is that its not very touristy at all.
florence itself is so much fun, we always to go old town to shop and eat. ICM (international c-food market) has the best food on the coast. Yahacts, depot junction, and bandon all have cool little shops.
if you are in florence you have to visit the lighthouse. it is haunted and they give tours daily.
you can't go wrong with florence or the diftwood!!
We came to Driftwood Shores inn with another couple for a golf outing. We loved our accomodations. The rooms were immaculate and well equipped. The service and food exceptional and the staff a delight. We had fun with our food server, Lance. Hang on to him! We plan to return soon. Thank you. p
Rented 2 of the 3 bedroom units for our family of 14. Everything was just as we had hoped for. Beds were very comfy. Kitchens were aptly supplied. Plenty of room for all of us. Couches and fireplace made it very cozy. Best of all was the ocean right outside our door. Staff was very attentive and courteous. Great rate with the Entertainment Book We will return in the future.
One we will remember
We are of the older generation. We were very impressed with the beauty of the location and the cleanliness of the facility. We would like to return soon.
Worth the money
My wife and I found the rooms to be very clean and comfortable. All the rooms have a magnificent view of the ocean. Parking was at premium as they were undergoing some remodeling at the time of our stay. The only complaint that I would have is that there wasnt much selection on the menu at the restaurant. I felt the room rates are pretty reasonable for what you were getting.
What A View!
My wife & i have stayed at Driftwood Shores twice in the last year & have had excellent accomadations & treatment by everyone , even the seagulls that come begging at the window are polite. Our only complaint would be that parking gets tight late in the evening.
The worst stay in a hotel ever
Had two rooms as our son and his family were with us. We had rooms with kitchens. The rooms were not made up daily. Had a personal pillow with pillow case taken and never returned to out of our room. The rooms were not made up, vacuumed. The housekeeping staff were rude, smoking in the corridors. Our stay there was anything but pleasant. Have written to the manager regarding the matter and have gotten no response. Just "I'm sorry", which is sad since our tab was well over $1500. I would never stay here again...Terrible experience. Our son and family NEVER got clean linens and had to ask for towels daily. Housekeeping was a JOKE!!!! The rooms were rarely made up, we had to call every day...Our son and his family never had their room made up. It was AWFUL!! And this is a resort hotel...I think NOT! Would not reccommend this place to anyone!
We stayed in a 3 bedroom condo. The views were beautiful and the stay was perfect. A definate must for your visit on the beautiful coast of Florence!!

... large mammals. Most of them sunned on the rocks a few dove in for a swim. They were definitely a sight to see! The wind on the cliff was intense. The lady at the gift shop said I the winter they have gotten winds over 100mph. We were glad we stopped here. Next a stop at Cape Perpetua. We took a short walk to the edge of the cliff to take in 30plus miles of beautiful shore line. Then we trekked down the cliff to find Thors Well and we found it! It was low tide so you couldn't see the ...

After lunch we strolled along the boardwalk checking out the shops and the bridge. We even found Mo's Tavern. Homer wasn't there yet. Then stopped for an ice cream cone for dessert. It was so sweet. I felt like I was being courted. We found a channel 9 news crew by the boardwalk and pointed out the sun to them. The photographer was rather surprised to see the huge halo around it.
Today we stayed long enough to watch the Patriots win the game. We had to go to a sports bar at 10:00 a.m. pacific time - luckily they served breakfast and not just beer!! We didn't actually get on the road until 1:40 p.m. and as we drove we were in driving rain (actually going sideways) and heavy winds that made the trip a bit on the scary side. Especially as we traveled over a very tall bridge over a river open to the ocean and we actually blew over a ...
... area last night I planned a road trip that included the dogs, so Harley could get into the water. Aragon is another story, as we've mentioned before. We headed north out of WB towards Florence. After a short stop at McDonalds I guided us to the North Jetty in Florence. It was a rather remote area with beach access, but the wind was incredible. Judy had spied a more secluded beach on our way, so we drove back, unloaded the ...
We slept in a little since it was Sunday. We were in a nice campground, that we acquired free of charge conveniently. We probably should feel bad, but we're broke college students traveling the country. So around 830 we decided to get up & moving. We had some banana bread as we packed up camp and then before leaving the area, checked out the lighthouse which turned out to be the oldest in Oregon.
After the lighthouse, we headed to ...
