We couldn't be happier with our stay! Regina and Al were beyond helpful and welcoming. We would return to Ft. Lauderdale just to stay with them again. Well done!!! It has such a cozy feel to it and is super quiet but right in the middle of the action. If you are tired of the regular chain hotels and want something with a unique charm. This is the p […] lace!!

"Our three night stay at the Drift Hotel"
The bed was very uncomfortable. Too small, too soft, pillows too big, too high off the floor. That was the smallest Queen bed we ever were in! There was only one towel rack and the sink was too small. No place for your toiletries! However, the breakfast was good, nice selection, and the staff was very helpful and friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Try the Drift!"
A great place to stay and avoid the crush and cost of larger hotels in the Fort Lauderdale area... close enough to everything that you won't feel out of the loop, though. Clean, quiet, and comfortable. I'd definitely go back, if I were in Ft. Lauderdale again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A small gem in Fort Lauderdale"
Great location, great price, great hotel! We are not fans of huge resort hotels and found the Drift Hotel to be perfect. One short block from the beach and you are away from the insanity of Spring Break crowds. It has a great courtyard for relaxing or enjoying the free breakfast. They also provide towels and chairs to bring to the beach. The staff is […] great too. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Drift Hotel"
Would come to this hotel again, clean, great staffGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most enjoyable stay."
Beautiful, quaint hotel near beach, restaurants and shops. Owners were very personable and accommodating. Continental breakfast in courtyard was better than any bigger chain hotel. Would definitely recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Love this Place!"
My husband and I stayed one night. We came arrived early from the airport. Since our room was being cleaned, they offered to let us leave our luggage in the office and go out to get lunch. We were also allowed to leave our luggage in an unused room after our check out, until we were ready to get a taxi to the cruise ship. They staff is friendly and […] very accommodating. The decor of this place is so relaxing and cool. The patio area has several bistro table sets in a shaded tropical setting. Our room was very clean. We were allowed to use their beach towels and chairs for free when we went to the beach. This hotel is one block from the beach and restaurants and few blocks from the intercostal waterway. It's location is a big plus! We will return to the Drift Hotel on our next visit to Ft. Lauderdale. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and staff"
The location is terrific - half a block to beach. The rooms have been renovated and are nice. The bathroom floors need to be redone. There is a nice quiet courtyard with chairs and sofas for relaxing. Breakfast is continental - nothing special. They could use some hot dishes like instant oatmeal or waffles. The coffee machine is a plus. The staff […] could not be more helpful. They were always available to fill any need. There is an storage room for luggage and for a last shower after you have checked out. That was helpful, since we had a late flight. They even provided large towels for the beach and sand chairs.

"Our stay at The Drift"
Everything about the hotel in terms of cleanliness, appeal of room & location to the beach was perfect for us! The rooms are on the smaller side but still really cute & perfect for the two of us. The only downside to my stay was the service. I stopped in early to figure out how check in will work since I had trouble with the phone number listed & was […] questioned about 1) my age (even though I was handing my license over to be copied) and 2) if I was there for Spring Break as it's not a "Spring Break Hotel". Not a huge deal, but as a paying guest who is there for a relaxing stay, I appreciate being treated with the same respect & friendliness all other guests are granted.

"Osis Drift Hotel"
This hotel is a little oasis within a nice courtyard, where we would have our breakfast sitting out in the courtyard. Nice beautiful decorated room with wood floor and cinder blocks in the closet. No swimming pool, but only steps across street to the Ft. Lauderdale Beach/Park. The management staff is very accommodating to our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very helpful, accommodating, and warm with us for the entire stay. The location was perfect- a 2 or 3 minute walk to the beach and ocean front restaurants and bars. The hotel itself is small and cozy, with a nice, private outdoor seating area. The rooms were tidy and well kept. It was a great deal for the price. Reginal and Al were hospital […] and always happy to provide. We would certainly recommend and return for another stay at this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"more than what was expected"
The place is great if you are looking for a cozy place to sleep and relax, from the reviews I read I was kind of nervous thinking it was going to be dingy, but it was not, the bed comfortable, and the room smelt fresh, there is not many amenities offered there is coffee and bagels in the morning which is great to get the day started but the beach is […] right down the street a three minute walk and shops and restaurants a 10 minute walk, it was a nice hotel and I would recommend it and would stay again.

"Newly refurbished, nice small hotel"
We stayed at the Drift Hotel in Nov. 2014. The hotel must have been renovated this summer, everything was like it looked on the pictures of the hotel, big bed, lots of pillows, white blinds, dark floor. Parking was available in front of the hotel. The staff was very kind, always open for a little chat. The hotel is located close to the beach, it's only […] a short walk. Also, there's a stop for the water taxi closeby. In the evenings, we walked to restaurants and bars in the area. The hotel staff gave us a map with all the important stuff, it was very convenient. The hotel breakfast was similar to the breakfast we received in most other US hotels: A lot of food and drinks came in plastic containers. If the space of the kitchen allows it, it would be great if some of the plastic containers could be replaced with glass in the future, makes the juice taste better :) If in the area again, we'll definitely pick this hotel.

"Good to stay, pretty staff , good location"
Extremely positive management and stuff. But more facilities needed like security. Also, Hotel entrance should have solid flooring . Tile flooring singing when laguage wheels running on. Air condition fan coils placed not good and noisy. No hair drier.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Piece of Heaven"
We stayed at the Drift Hotel for a long weekend to get away from the cold weather in NY. The Hotel was recently renovated and was perfect for what we wanted, a place to stay near the beach and restaurants/activities. We had thought that not having a pool would be a issue as my husband gets very antsy just sitting at the beach, but the location allowed […] us to visit the local pubs, bike, fish, and eat great! Complimentary parking was a plus, but a car is not necessary in the Fort Lauderdale beach area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Here for one night stay following return from a cruise, Hotel staff was very helpful as well as cheerful. Enjoyed the convenient location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Cute and Clean"
This is a little mom and pop place that provides a nice clean place to stay. No frills , but close to the beach and places to eat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay there again"
Close enough walking distance to bars n eatery. Bathroom was small no sink/counter space for your stuff had to use toilet seat lid. No fridge to keep water bottles. No breakfast. Thin walls you can hear everything. But other than that very clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice new Boutique hotel on the beach"
Pleasantly surprised to find and quiet and restored Florida art deco hotel a few steps from the beach. Lots of improvements in all areas of the hotel - and the room price was good value - the rooms are nicely done - i would say appropriate for the hotel and everything in the room was functional. Finally the location cannot be beat. Drift hotel is all […] good in my books! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautifully renovated and upgraded"
Pleasantly surprised to find a beautifully renovated small boutique hotel just half a block from the heart of the Ft Lauderdale beach, bars and restaurants. The hotel has been completely redone and upgraded and the room was very comfortable and the staff helpful but new. It had a authentic feel to it and it all seemed to work.I booked on a introductory […] rate as they are just opening up. The location and quality of the room is why i would recommend the hotel. I will be back with my partner. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location for Ft. Lauderdale Beach Strip"
When I picked Gigi's I read the reviews before hand. I knew the location was great and close to where I needed to be. I also knew that I would only need to stay there for a place to sleep one night. If you plan on staying there for any time other than sleeping - don't do it. If you need an affordable place to stay within walking distance of the heart […] of the Ft. Lauderdale strip, and you are not an absolute clean freak, then it may be worth the money you save. FLL strip is not cheap, so saving money on the hotel was worth it to me.

"Old school Florida hotel"
Gigi's is like a beach hotel I used to go to in the 80's. It is small and nice. If you want a Hyatt, look elsewhere. It does have need some work in places but we still loved it. Our favorite thing was breakfast. It is very simple but everyone just eats around a single table in the shady courtyard. We met such nice people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a dump."
First and last time I'll let Expedia pick my hotel. The website for Gigi's Resort by the Beach was totally misleading. It looked cute and quaint; it was tacky and run-down. Our bathroom wasn't clean (the manager was apologetic - he cleaned it himself), there was no hot water, there weren't even glasses or soap in the room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Creepy manager walked in without knocking"
Manager walked in without knocking and we checked outGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Beach location."
Great spot for 2 or 3 nights. Needs a lot of cosmetic work. Owner is a great guy!! Beds were clean. Definitely not the Hilton.Genuine Expedia guest review
"need to improve"
close to beach but place needs lots of updates, room was not clean, place needs lots of repairs, lacks amenities, seek others before booking here.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gigi's London Room"
My husband and I stayed here only for one night it was such a cute place the owner is a very nice man who lives on site. We woke up in the morning to fresh coffee and bagels. Overall the experience was great.We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel manager was very rude. Room was not all that clean. But location is difficult to beat. Would not stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Staff was so welcoming and accommodating. The room was unique and comfortable and private.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A More Quiet South Beach-like Location"
I was impressed with the location overall. They were more than happy to let me do a late check in, the room was quaint, much like it would be better suited to be an apartment. The neighborhood was great, wonderful food, the boardwalk, we had a real nice time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location for price"
The location is superb. Free parking is a huge plus for the area! The employee was super nice. However, the room I was in needs a DEEP cleaning. For the price, an excellent value but be prepared to do a little cleaning yourself when you arrive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not clean, old, never going back nor suggestingGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room in terrible condition"
From previous reviews I did not expect the room to be in good condition. But upon arrival I saw yellow spots on the toilet seat which were no doubt urine. Disgusting. There was foam on shower curtain. Bed sheets did not look clean and I don't really believe they changed the sheets. The curtain rod was broken and fell off. I dont have problem with old […] rooms but at least make it clean! To be fair the location was really good and the hotel has free parking (although when I arrived on july 4th it was full) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Classic art deco"
For the money an excellent experience. Not a $400/night big towels and lots of staff place but quaint and relaxed. Staff was most friendly and eager to help. Not fancy, not high end, but comfortable. Excellent location. If you're looking for a fun, low cost place , this is it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gigi's what a deal"
We had a wonderful get away weekend all to ourselves at Gigi's, or that is how it felt. We don't need fancy to be satisfied and that's a good thing. Not fancy, simple and wonderful, much more our style!!! Manager was beyond awesome, making coffee early for us once he realized we were up and going prior to scheduled breakfast time. The best grapes I […] have ever had.... Will do it again!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Shady smelly cracked celing room"
Admittedly, the clerk was very nice in that we booked late and he waited for us to arrive. Yet, for a B and B breakfast was not served until 8 and we had to leave at 7 for a flight out of FLL. He said he would come down by 7 but we didn't see him when we were hurrying out away from the room around 7. The ceiling was cracked and chipping. It smelled […] like a hospital or nursing home. The air conditioner blew right on me in bed. The bathroom was very hot. We were so skeeved out we didn't even want to use the shower. It was definitely not worth $143 for nine hours of non-sleep because we were so freaked out by the place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not to be recommended"
The general condition and appearance of the hotel was poor. Our room was just acceptable. The bathroom was absolutely appalling! The ceiling had a large damp stain which was bulging. The toilet roll holder was broken and stained. The faucets were severely stained with limescale and goodness knows what else. There are broken wall tiles. Finally the presentation […] of breakfast was minimal in quantity, the facilities where to eat are poor. The only option was to eat outside and no provision for eating inside or under cover in adverse weather conditions. I would not recommend this hotel at all. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
