As usual the staff was great and the hotel was very clean. I am not sure why they put gates on the stairs at the driftwood as they just make it difficult to haul stuff up and are in the way. The internet was improved vastly and the bed was comfortable. In all a great stay.

A very friendly clean resort with anything you may need within walking distance. We had 6 weeks of great weather and many beautiful sunsets. We will be back next year for 6 weeks. Yahoo!! The owners and staff are the best. I highly recommend Driftwood Lodge.

The staff,room and grounds are all excellent. Located close to good shopping, GREAT FOOD. When I go to Panama city, Driftwood is where I stay. No exceptions. Kitchenette rooms are the best. This is a top notch destination for families.

We have been coming to the Driftwood for 25+ years. It is our favorite place to come and relax. This year we were able to spend 2 months of winter here and it was very pleasant and the weather was delightful.

Although the Driftwood Lodge may appear unimpressive from the roadside view, be prepared to be pleasantly surprised. Our room was exceptionally clean and spacious and very well equipped. The view from our balcony was stunning and the resort property is adjacent to a beautiful, white, sandy beach. The property is tidy and offers all the expected amenities. The Driftwood is...

The indoor carpet was in need of replacement. Very dated furniture and small TV's. No where to store your clothes. No safe. Internet was great. Nice hot-tub and pool. If friends visit, they must pay to use the facilities.

Very nice family owned business. Very budget friendly. Nostalgic beach front property remincent of the days before high rise condo towers. Within walking distance to the pier and pier park restaurants and nice shops.

Rooms were clean and comfortable. Had all the comforts of home with full size refrigerator, kitchen sink, microwave and such. Loved our patio that had a picnic table and chairs to sit outside and enjoy the beach air and sounda of the ocean.
