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!!

... with a chicken leg in it, leave it out for 5 minutes, pull it in and toss back all the females but keep the unlucky males of required size. There were a lot of crabs in that bay! We saw a couple of sea lions cruising around hoping for some fish handouts.

... this bane of Canadian existence, we headed out Tuesday morning only to have our fruits and veges liberated by the border guards who thought we deserved a vehicle search. Didn't take long before we were happily on our way to Daybreak Cohousing in Portland.
We had a lovely bottle of wine and talked with Ric*******e of the "burning souls" who started Daybreak which was being constructed in 2008-09. Probably one of the worst times in recent history because of the ...

When we got back to our site I could not believe how frikin' cold I was, why why why did I cancel my own summer....what have I done!!!! I bundled up, double jacket, hood, hat, gloves and then hid in the car to soak up the residual heat still inside ...
I have to start today with saying, "I MORE DAY!!!!" This time tomorrow I'll be sitting with Dan and Lysse and I'm so excited--I can hardly stand it!!! I have loved every minute of this trip(well almost) but for me the biggest excitement is spending time with Dan and Lysse. We haven't seen them in ...
... interesting wave phenomenon that blows water like an old steam engine. The pictures do not convey the noise of the splash and boom that goes along with the wave action. We could have stopped every couple minutes to take pictures along our drive today, the views are that amazing. The storm that kept us in the campsite for a couple days did us a favor because it really made for wonderful views of the wild sea.
After we set up for the night we went ...
