We wake tired from yesterday and the fact that both our air mattresses are punctured which makes for rough nights sleep. We are camped by sand dunes and a lake so take the air beds to the lake and find one hole in one and ten I the other! Spend ages tryjng to patch them up and go for a swim in the lake. Set off too late and only do 25 miles. Need a rest day soon legs are ...
... Old Town Inn) and found the rooms were not ready yet. Then over to the marina where we had a picnic lunch waterside.
Our next stop was just south of the river at the Sand Dunes. We "rode the rails". I was expecting more of a "thrill ride". Instead it was a really nice informative tour of the sand dunes with a few exciting moments. I learned ...
... nice little setting in the woods despite some of the creatures appearing to be currently "out of order'.
Made a quick stop in Bandon, OR a very cute town for you guessed it.. more fish n chips at the Bandon Fish Market. Yelp and our Road trip USA book have been pretty successful guides so far. Very pretty sea views on Beach Loop Drive of Face Rock and some other rocks on the way.

ONWARD TO THE PACIFIC!
Saturday morning, June 1st, we left the campground in time to be at the John day Fossil Beds visitor center when it opened at 9 a.m. - but the sign at the campground was wrong, and when we arrived, we found that the opening would not happen until 10. While waiting, that gave time for a short hike to the top of the hill for scenic views of the valley and a few wildflower shots. Then, an hour in 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.
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!!
