I was very disappointed with the overall condition of the hotel. It's not the worst I've ever seen, but for the price and the location I was expecting more. There was no phone in my room and the one outside barely worked. The free breakfast was very unhealthy and didn't look sanitary or fresh. The hotel staff was very unprofessional and mean spirited. […] However, things got better on the second day. The hotel is perfectly situated on the beach, walking distance to everything which is why I chose it in the first place. If you can overlook the small stuff as I did, this isn't a bad place to stay. Very secure and quiet. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Funky but very comfortable and very nice ownership"
I enjoyed this room very much. Great location. Very nice owner. Very funky motel but clean and convienent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very disappointing :("
The good thing about my stay here was that i just needed this hotel for 1 night because of a wedding i was attending and i didn't want to drive back home drunk. I understand when a place is old, but what i do not understand is when you let-the-place-go into shambles. I stayed in the Venice room, the roof was showing signs of mold and it was peeling […] off the ceiling, there was no wifi. For the price I paid here, i could've gone to a closer place from where the wedding was taking place and paid less, but i chose this one because it had 'nice pictures'. Never Again..

"THIS HOTEL IS HORRIBLE DONT WASTE YOUR TIME&MONEY"
the windows were broken, AC not working with cracks in the walls and what looked to be molding on the windows. Owner told me and I quote "Window is not broken its just cracked" REALLY!! there is a piece of the window missing!! horrible we went to the Westin near the beach best decision ever dont let Gigis ruin your vacationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
No one was there when we arraived.we check the room and it s smells and every thing was old.the breakfast was terrible.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Gigi's was an historic inviting landing spot amidst the family oriented life of the Fort Lauderdale Beach community. The quaint quiet location was the perfect setting to rest your head comfortably at night ready to have a quick bite and head to the beach the next morning. Great location and excellent hospitality staff I will absolutely return for a […] stay when next I find myself in For Lauderdale. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Gigi's was very friendly and convienant for the price we payed. The location was perfect! Walking distance to the beach, restaurants and shops. The hotel is old but clean and comfortable. I would definetely stay here again and would recommand this hotel to other guests. It's a great deal for the price. They also have a continental breakfast and free […] parking space.

"Great boutique hotel near the beach"
Great hotel. Clean room, comfortable bed and wonderful service. The free breakfast from 8-9:30 was good. Al and Regina were VERY nice, they really made you feel at home. The Drift also has free beach towels to borrow and being only 1 block from the beach. They have an outdoor shower and offered to hold our bags so we could enjoy the beach even after […] we checked out. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, though it may not be great for families with young kids. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"hotel close to beach but needs reno"
wasn't as the photo shown very disappointed. Didn't have a good selection in breakfast varieties.The comfort was ok and ok sleep such as room size.BUT bathroom very old.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Could have been Cute"
Sort of art deco place with the potential to be really pretty and in an outstanding location. But drab, dull, rather grubby in a way that the owner's smile couldn't overcome. Breakfast was poor.Genuine Expedia guest review
"okay place to stay but a bit messy"
we booked this place for 3 nights for a two double bed room and arrived at 11PM. The staff was really nice and helpful. But room appears to be a bit small and floor was not too clean. Considering the price we paid, this is probably what we can get. Overall I would say it is an okay place to stay close to the beach if you don't have a better choice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good location, friendly helpful staff, in need of some upgrading on the room front.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Do not believe the pictures or descriptions. This place is dirty, rundown and not at all what I expected. Do not stay here it is nasty, rotten floor boards moldy walls with holes, rust stained tub and filthy. Do not stay here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bon rapport qualité prix"
Nous sommes resté au Drift avant de partir en croisière, petit motel super chaleureux et très comfortable. Situé à 2minutes de la plage, restaurant et magasin tout près. Je recommande cet hotel sans hésitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Två som trivdes fint."
Fantastiskt läge, nära strand, restauranger och shopping. Hotellet är gammalt men fint restaurerat. Rummet har bra standard och är rent och prydligt. En sak vi saknade var handdusch. Fanns bara takdusch. Fin och lummig uteplats. Bra frukost, gott kaffe. Kaffe fanns tillgängligt under hela dagen i receptionen. Lugnt och tyst på nätterna. Ett hotell, […] litet och mysigt med en mycket serviceinriktad ägare och personal. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Ett mycket bra och trivsamt hotell nära stranden o restauranger. Hjälpsam och mycket trevlig personal. Inga problem med sen incheckning. Vi kommer absolut att bo här igen. Tips på en bra restaurang i närheten 150 meter imot havet. CasablancaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Flott beliggenhet til en fin pris."
Fin pris og perfekt beliggenhet. 2 minutter til den beste delen av stranden (syntes vi, da ettermiddagssolen her ikke ble sperret av de store hotellene). Mannen du møter da du sjekker inn er så søt og behjelpelig med alt. Rommene er store nok og det føltes helt ok rent og ordentlig. Fin ventilasjon. Frokosten var ingen høydare men ok som magefyll før […] du rekker fram til lunsj. Dusjen vi hadde (bodde på Marokko-rommet - alle rommene har forskjellige navn og tema) trenger definitivt et nytt dusjhode. Var så lite trykk at vi ikke klarte å spyle bort all sanda fra kroppen en gang. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Für den Preis echt in Ordnung."
Es war jetzt nicht das beste Hotel in dem wir geschlafen haben aber unser Zimmer war total in Ordnung. Der Besitzer ist sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend. Ganz allgemein ist das Hotel für den Preis in einem guten Zustand. 1 Woche würde ich nicht bleiben aber für eine Nacht war es mehr als ausreichend. Man darf sich nur nicht allzu viel erwarten man bekommt […] kein Hilton! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The worst ever"
We knew it wasn't a 4 Star hotel, but was still surpprised, that a hotel could be so dirty. The breakfast was a laugh. We had paid for 3 nights but did only stay for 1 Night. We have been around the world and stayed in over 200 hotels. This was the worst ever.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Camera e toilet molto sporche. Colazione misera e preparata solo con prodotti confezionati da supermercato, niente di fresco. Luogo silenzioso, quartiere tranquillo. PESSIMA SCELTA, mea culpa...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oh my god... never again!"
Ok... I'm trying to remember why did I book this place???? During our on the road travels we alraedy saw some disgusting places... but this... oh no! No thanks! The manager was really friendly, but that's the only positive thing I can say about this place! Our room was located on the second floor with a small lobby in front of the door... this was smelling […] of pee: really horrible! Than we entered the room... the first I though was "this looks like a room of an horror movie". I won't list everything that was bad (manily... everything!) but the worst was that the whole area (including the bad, the toilet, the floor, the tub, the sink... EVERYTHING REALLY) was covered with wings of a not specified insect! Not just few wings... they were really everywhere! And what about the "continental" breakfast???? No, really... make yourself a favor... everywhere else but here! And it wasn't really that cheap!!! A catastrophe!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location - Great Value!"
03/29/15 JohnMuskokaW Bala, Canada
Highly recommend this bed and breakfast retreat, which is perfectly located to enjoy the beach and all that is FUN by the beach. Great restaurants, like Casa Blanca and Coconuts to name two. The Elbow room if you want to party! All just down the streeet. The rooms are romantic, (i saw a few), and it's nicely quiet there, no downtown part noise.... and we loved the courtyard gardens (breakfast and chillin) giving you a sense of privately being in your own little resort. In the end, save money staying here and spend it eating in great restaurants and partying in the bars. Thanks to Regina who welcomed us and helped us enjoy our stay on Fort Lauderdale.
"Over the top friendly service"
03/29/15 Diane S Lincoln, Alabama, United States
This newly renovated hotel had nice clean rooms and a friendly staff. We met the owners and they were eager to please and were willing to listen to suggestions. We enjoyed our breakfast everyday on the patio. We would definitely stay here again!
"They know how to please you."

The drift hotel it´s very well located, clean and cosy. The owners are good people and they know what they are doing. We´ve been there with our daughters and both Sofia and Inês love them, especially Al and Regina a couple from Brasil that works at the Drift and were very helpful. As a family we clearly recommend the Drift expecting to return back there soon.
"4 Day Stay"
03/26/15 Greg H Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Wonderful place, wonderful staff. Very accommodating & friendly. Lots of nice little extras (beach chairs & beach towels provided at no extra cost. Only a short block from beach. Even though we unknowingly booked our trip during spring break the hotel was peaceful and quiet with nice courtyard. Nice place to sit and eat the complimentary continental breakfast to plan your day. The room and bathroom were clean and well stocked with lotions, shampoo, conditioner and soap and makeup wipes. Allowed us to store our bags, take showers and change on our departure day even though we were already checked out. Regina & Al (managers) are the best. Friendly and accommodating.
03/25/15 Lynne S Genoa, Nevada
Al and Regina were so welcoming and attentive. Arrived early and without us knowing Regina had our room done up immediately, so we didn't have to wait for 4 hours. Kim helped so much printing boarding passes and calling for a taxi to the airport. Thank You! Great location, water taxi convenient with a "whistle stop at Seville St., just a block from the hotel. Al was so kind and loaned us his personal umbrella for the beach, a life saver! Great having beach chairs and towels provided and easy continental breakfast. Most of all room was clean and nicely framed large mirror in rm. 14. Courtyard peaceful with simple Zen-like blue pottery driftwood centerpiece. Thank you all for your hospitality. Our to go to spot in the future!
"Great find cozy boutique hotel"
03/20/15 Charlene B Bangkok, Thailand
This quaint hotel was awesome along with the owners Chris and Kim and caretakers Al and Regina. They went out of there way to make sure you had everything you needed. Great continental breakfast along with laundry facilities. They took pride in the cleanliness and condition of common areas. One block from the beach and within walking distance to all amenities. Free wifi in the courtyard. Definitely an awesome find. We'll be back!

The Drift is a little boutique hotel a block from the beach and very close to the the cruise ship terminal. It is reasonably priced and the rooms have been nicely renovated. The staff are very attentive and really friendly. Thank you Regina and Al for being so accommodating and showing us the beautiful suites where we will definitely stay on our next visit to Fort Lauderdale.
The Drift Hotel is a beautiful little botique hotel located a block from the beach. We stayed at the Drift before our cruise, great location close to the port and came back for a few extra nights after our cruise. The staff are wonderful and very accomadating. We stayed in two different rooms and both were very nice, my wfe loved the beach decore. The Drift is a fantastic choice, resonably priced and very nice.
We stayed the night before our cruise, and also booked for the 3 nights after our Cruise. We had found this hotel on line through one of the many booking websites.. We had said that we will stay the first night, and if we do not like it, we will cancel the second half of our booked stay... We arrived very late at night and instantly fell in love with the place! When we went in to our room, my reaction was, this place is so lovely!! It is so quaint and airy! The next day we left for our Cruise and met Al, what a lovely man! Everyone is so friendly and wants nothing more then to please.. Yes, there are rules at the hotel, such as no noise, but definitely for the best.. We happened to be there during "Spring Break", and thankfully there was absolutely no partying going on at this hotel! We returned after our Cruise for our three night stay in room 10... So big, and I love the decor! So much nicer then the "Typical" hotels along the beach front! It is such a short walk to the Beach, and located in the nice part of town!! We loved this place and the absolutely friendly people there! We will be back! A absolute must stay!!
"HEAVEN on Earth"
03/16/15 donnafw Williamstown, NJ
The Drift Hotel is a beautiful quaint hotel nestled in palm trees, a block from the beach. Amazing Service from Regina & Al - They made me feel like I was staying at my favorite Aunt and Uncle's home! Property immaculately clean, Beds were so comfortable with my adult daugther calling her sleep in them "magic" So close to many restaurants that we walked to a different one each night (stayed four nights). Also perfect for my daughter to walk to the Night Clubs & Shopping on the strip yet I had the quiet of a boutique property. I highly recommend The Drift - it is certainly my new Florida vacation property!!
