Stay away from this hotel
The guy grumbled the whole time because I booked with I know he put me on the third floor and there's no elevators just because I booked with my room had no desk and the hair blow dryer was broken the heat was completely off when I got in there the heat is baseboard I had to turn it on there's no way to regulate the heat so either I would be very hot or very cold. I will never stay at the Driftwood again and I recommend removing the listing because they do not seem to be welcoming to people nor do they represent their place adequately with broken items in the room and the room's not matching the description. I needed a desk for the reason I was here and rather I had to pull the chair up to the edge of the dresser. The dresser smelled like vinegar I was not able to put any of my clothes away because of this.

If you needed towels of anything during the stay you had to go to the front desk to get it they advertise daily maid service but did not offer it I would say at best this hotel was $50 over priced per night for the same nightly rate you can get a way better nicer and cleaner hotel down the road the only good thing about this hotel is it’s within walking distance of everything the beds was not comfortable every time he moved the bed squeaked the floor squeak as you walked on it you could hear the other people in the next room

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at The Driftwood. It definitely is a lot more of a humble and dated hotel than we are used to but the ease and friendliness of check-in, central location, and shuttle service from airport really made up for it. Thank you to all the Driftwood Hotel employees for a great stay!

No maid service. If I needed a clean towel or coffee each morning, I had to go downstairs to the front desk. What hotel does this?? Shabby furnishings. Smelly room. Beds would rock if you sat on the end of the bed. TV didn’t work. Asked them to fix it with no response. Finally got them to put us in another room, which was cleaner and had newer furnishings and tv worked.
