... path we took did all of these things. But, rather crucially, it was not the path we intended to take. Perhaps more crucially, it wasn’t a path at all! It took Chris quite a while to notice the warning signs. Slippery rocks, the lack of any other footprints, signposts… the fact that we were expecting to do about 0.5 miles extra and we’d been walking for half an hour without finding the other path…

... through the various exhibits. T'was fascinating!! We saw STUFF, stuff that dates back to 3-400 BC and paintings from the 1500 to the present from a variety of names I know you would be familiar with like Picasso, Monet, Chagall. The etching included in the attached photos is by Picsso and is in their themed area about food and poverty. It is an amazing print; the first he ever published. It is very accomplished with a lot of subtle touches and very expressive of the ...

From the campground we walked to the beach. It amazed me that we could be in pines with a river behind our camp spot and then a couple minute walk be on the beach. I had never been anywhere like that before and I was in awe. The dogs also LOVED the beach! It was fun to watch them run and play. The next day Bess and Terry took us on a tour of the area. We went to the town of Yachats and ate lunch over looking the ...

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!!
