Room we stayed in was at edge of beach - a great location!! Room was clean had refrigerator, coffee pot and microwave. There were grills. Tables with umbrellas and lounge chairs were available right outside our room. It's not a fancy hotel, clean and family friendly. We highly recommend.

We were super impressed with Driftwood Lodge. The view of the beach was priceless and literally steps from our door. It was very kid friendly and they even hosted an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos. We will undoubtedly return.

The room was clean and smelled fresh and the view of the beach from our second floor room was excellent!! It was in walking distance of Pier Park. Perfect place on the beach and everyone was very friendly at the Lodge. We only went over 30 years ago once to Panama City Beach, it didn't seem family friendly, but it...

The customer service was great. The room and view was wonderful. I would recommend to anyone. We went for our spring break with the children. They really had a wonderful time. We wasn't ready to leave as usual.

Traveled for a weekend vacation. Great view and loved that I could walk out onto a deck with lounge chairs or just a few more steps and was on the beach. Also within walking distance of Pier Park with lots of shopping, restaurants and bars. Will definitely plan to stay here for future visits.

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.
