Welcoming, well located and full of character
We are really glad we chose the Drift....very friendly and welcoming.....just a short stroll to restaurants and of course the beach. Our room was large and full of character and the internal courtyard makes for a quiet stay. We would definitely return.

Nice hotel
Overnight stay before a cruise fron Ft Lauderdale. The hotel is conveniently located, reasonable taxi fare both from the airport and to the cruise terminal. The rooms are quite spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are OK, but not luxurious. The staff, Regina and Al, are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also quite decent, better than what I have learnt to expect in the US. Overall good value for money.

Small and friendly
We stayed in this hotel for a week. It is a small hotel a block from the beach which has lots of bars and restaurants. A continental breakfast was included and this was served in the courtyard which is a well maintained area with lots of trees. The owners are very "hands on" and obliging, Regina and Al kept our room clean and were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has no pool but this was not a disadvantage and probably was one of the reasons it was quiet. My only niggles were the lack of a phone in the room although Kim and Chris were happy to let me use the phone in their office and the WiFi which was only accessible in the courtyard and not in the room. That said, it did not detract from this pleasant boutique hotel and our room which was large and very comfortable.

Relaxing and Welcoming Hotel
A very relaxing hotel with a lovely courtyard. Our room was one of the nicest we've ever stayed in - like a boutique hotel with a homely feel. The breakfast is minimal, but for the price the hotel is great value. It is in an excellent location - very near to the beach, shops and restaurants (and a Starbucks). The staff were really friendly and welcoming - would definitely stay there again.
