“Nice quiet family fun”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

We stayed for Thanksgiving and it was great! The room was clean with a kithenette, the pool was heated and the views were great. Everyone seemed to be like us, families just getting away for the holiday weekend. We will be back

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor with great views of the pool and beach

My husband and I have been taking our kids and grandkids to Driftwood Lodge for many years. Typically, we visit Driftwood Lodge twice a year. We love the family enviorment, friendly and helpful staff, daily activities for children, clean beach, and making memories! I have shared pictures of my family during our stay. We hope you enjoy Driftwood Lodge as much as we do!

Room Tip: We have stayed in all the rooms; any room is a good room.

It was our first time staying at the Driftwood. It is one of the last remaining "Old Florida" motels around. The staff were so nice. The daily events were so nice all the "free" lunches and the Grandparents breakfast was great. The owner really knows how to cook! The best thing was most of the guest were middle aged mostly, so everyone mingled and played games and talked. Most of the folks there when we stayed, were repeat coustomers that have been staying every year for several years, so a lot of the guest actually knew each other. It was quiet and clean and well kept. The sun deck is great , we enjoyed movie night. Can't beat it free movie under ths stars, with free popcorn and even homemade fudge for the guest. I would highly recommend a stay here. We are already booking another stay. The best place by far. We go to PC every year, and have stayed at almost every place there is. If you are middle aged or just want peace and quiet without all the yelling and carrying on all night this is the best place.

Room Tip: Ask for a lower level. Every room has its own patio with a picknick table and benches and also chair...
