Great Hideaway Spot
It was a very pleasant stay. For the price it was very accommodating. The only downfall is the limited parking, but that's what you deal with on Ft Lauderdale beach. We will definitely visit again soon.

Not a good hotel experience
I arrived after hours to stay at The Drift Hotel. My name was in an envelope with all of check in instructions. I received two keys only one worked. I specifically asked and paid for a King bed and received a double room with no welcome basket. I don’t know if my room was cleaned. I called the after hours number and no one picked up, left a voicemail and no one returned my calls. The next day when I talked about my experience to the front desk agent, he dismissed it with excuses. I will not return to the Drift Inn in the future.
Amber, us1 night trip
Fair 4.0
We get to the room and there was a distinct smell. I thought it was because they just renovated it and I wasn’t worried about it since we wouldn’t be in the room much. Later after we get back from dinner we noticed a cockroach on one of the tables. We tried calling the after hours number no one answered... we ended up packing our belongings and putting them in our car. We contemplated on sleeping in our vehicle but we just drove 17 plus hours so we decided it was just one bug so we stayed in the room and checked everything else before bed. We woke up the next morning early. The room was so humid it was disgusting. The smell grew even worse. We showered and retired our keys to the front. I will never stay here again.

Hotel had advertised wifi in rooms, water and ice and coffee in lobby. Property had none of the amenities. Upon arrival receptionist was rude. Very unprofessional.

Great price and location
We had a great stay. Rooms renovated since last time we were there. We have stayed her about 4 times and being gone most of they day doing activities and going to the beach can’t justify paying resort fees and parking the bigger hotels charge.

Loved it!
It's so close to the beach and the beds we're so comfortable. I wish they had an ice machine but the fridge iced my water so it was ok. I was very pleased with my stay. Will be coming back.

Very good 8.0
It’s a great place to stay with the beach across the street, that was an A+, very clean with renovated rooms. The only concern I had is that there was no complimentary coffee in the mornings not even a coffee maker in the room. There was coffee makers on the small lobby but never with coffee.
