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!!

... to some poor soul who walked all the way to the top. The Heceta Head Lighthouse is probably the most scenic we have seen -- a spectacular walk up to the bluff (150 feet above the sea) with breathtaking views of the ocean below. The 56-foot tall lighthouse was built in 1894 and is the most powerful light along the Oregon coast -- it can be seen 21 miles out to sea and is only stopped by the curvature of the ...

... opted for some taffy and I went into absolute bliss with kahlua crunch ice cream. The owner gave me a taste of salt caramel, which is their best seller. Then I spied blackberry ice cream. After a small taste of that I’ll definitely be back for more. When we lived in Oregon we loved blackberry ice cream.
We took a drive down to the dunes to see what a spectacle it was, and sure enough, another trip with a camera will be on our agenda. ...
