    Amazing Resort

    You cannot beat the combination or location price and quality. I won’t stay anywhere else again when in Vero. The on site restaurant is fantastic as well (Waldos)

    Can't be beat for the area

    My aunt & I have been patrons of Waldo's for years & decided to treat ourselves to a stay at the Driftwood Inn that surrounds our favorite spot in Vero Beach. We were not disappointed. I think the majority of the rooms has some view of the ocean & we made good use of our chairs in our patio area to enjoy our view. The room was cozy and had a dining nook, well equipped kichen and separate sleeping & living room. The sleeping area included pocket doors to allow for additional privacy. The shower was wonderfully hot. I would stay again without hesitation. It's right on the Vero Beach strip with lots of shopping and restaurants. I recommend Waldo's for lunch or dinner and across the street is the Lemon Tree for breakfast or lunch.

    Loved the property! Very clean. Room was ok but very clean. Planned on eating at the onsite restaurant however found out it was closed on Thursday which was when we were there. One night stay. Ate there on Friday and the food was very good. Was sad they didn't have chairs on the beach, however it was a beautiful place. Would go back again.

    The Driftwood is a fun place to stay. None of the pomp but all of the circumstances. It’s a great place for families.

    Charming, but a few warts.

    The property is older and on the national Historic Registry. It is well kept and maintained. Our room was spacious and had a kitchenette, small bedroom area, and a seating area. The kitchenette came stocked with towels, dishes, silverware, a full size coffee maker, and even dishwashing soap. Check in is at 4 pm and she. We arrived we still had to wait over an hour because our room wasn’t ready. The room was moderately cool but still a little muggy and sticky. The little window AC unit ran all the time but the wasn’t very cold. Be warned check out is 10 am and they appear to be militant about it. They called us at 9 am to remind us to be out of there by 10 am. Parking was nearly impossible and extremely tight. They appear to have a very popular pool side bar that many of the locals come to and they take up much of the parking. At the time of this writing Covid is still a thing and almost. No one except the staff and handful of guests were wearing masks. It was a bit unnerving. There is lots of shopping and restaurants within walking distance. The main pool is very popular and the drinks during happy hour are very reasonable. There is a second pool that is larger and much quieter if that is more your speed. We had mixed reviews about our stay and my wife wants to give it another shot. I am on the fence. Overall the property was very charming but things like tight parking can’t be fixed. Things like having your room ready should’ve been fixed.

    Head a great stay. Location was perfect. Service was professional. Food service was slow, but expected with the crowd. Overall, a great experience. Will be the first place I look when booking in Vero again.

    very comfortable and clean suite. Would have liked the restaurant to serve breakfast, but across the street was a very good breakfast restaurant.
