... which would have been expensive to outfit.
They have a lovely mature tree which they sited the buildings around; and they have extensive landscaping including the boulevards around the complex. Surprisingly they were not required to provide on-site parking. That is the benefit of having an approving authority that understands the benefit of putting pressure on vehicle allowances.
We had 2 nights here so we took the opportunity of the slack day to go ...
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 ...
... The guy had us in stitches telling us about the letter he just wrote to a swanky hotel that they had stayed at in San Francisco because of some issues with the valet service. The guy had such a dry sense of humor that was hilarious. What Fun!
Also wanted to show you ...
... spotted a couple of whales-another first for me.
We also went to the sea lion caves (which we got to see for free thanks to our volunteer friends), and that was pretty awesome. I couldn't stop thinking that it was created by Disney though. Back at camp and too full for a real dinner after our big lunch, we sat at the fire and had snacks that we dug up with some wine for Bess and me. We loved seeing them again. Next time Tom will be retired and we will have more ...

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.
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.
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.
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!!
