"Drift Hotel"
The Drift Hotel was listed as a Bed and Breakfast. Boxed cereal, some kind of fruit and coffee. The people that ran the hotel were wonderful. The room was very nice.

"Great location to the beach and bars"
The hotel was very clean and nice. Location was perfect! Regina and AL were great hosts. My only concern was that my fiance and I felt we were Constantly being watched. They're on top of everything which is a good thing for the hotel but made us feel a bit uncomfortable. "I'm always watching you Wazalski, always watching" - Monsters Inc. This was our inside joke lol. Otherwise our stay was great and location even better. We would definitely recommend this hotel to our Friends.

This place is in a great location, just a stones throw from the beach and shops, restaurants. But still peaceful, room was a good size and very comfortable. it was very hot weather so the air conditioning was working over time and a wee bit noisy at night, but we highly recommend The Drift !!

"Hidden Gem!"
I was a little hesitant to not stay at a big chain hotel for my trip, but I am so glad I read the reviews and went with The Drift! Regina and Al are fantastic! The location is everything: right across the beach and a 5 min walk from the strip. They provided chairs and beach towels for us. The hotel is so quiet at night so you get a good night's rest! It's a 20 min ride from the airport and 10 min from las olas/downtown. Several great places to eat and drink around here, but away from the craziness of the strip. Bathroom is a little small, but as someone who travels to Europe and lived in NY this was not a deal-breaker for me. The courtyard is beautiful to sit and work or eat breakfast or just relax.

"WELCOME TO HOTEL BOOT-CAMP! CIGAR SMOKERS BEWARE!"
Started out great very happy to get away for the weekend. But in the morning I woke up went outside and got yelled at by the staff lady like if I was a little kid because she said SOMEONE saw me smoking a cigar in the terrace and that she specifically told me that smoking was only allowed in the smoking section behind the building. I explained to the lady," MAM I am 47 yrs old with 5 children I know the rules and you don't have to yell or treat me like a child and embarrass me in front of other patrons of the hotel"..And I told her I will write this in my review! Very unprofessional and discomforting to have such a staff member. By the way that's it as far as staff her and another guy. At the beginning when you check in it's like checking in at a military base. She told us not to expect much from the staff and to keep our rooms neat. NO ICE NO PHONE NO SERVICE All I wondered was were are the owners? The place itself is nice for a getaway but I felt very uncomfortable with the military treatment!

Response by The Drift Hotel
Thank you for your feedback. it comments like yours that ensure we continue to improve our customer service. It was not our intent to make you unhappy with your stay at the Drift Hotel. And in your case we missed the mark. Smoking on the property is not permitted except in the designated smoking area in the back of the hotel, away from guests and other rooms. As it is a older hotel we are very aware of smoking of any kind due to fire ,safety and consideration of other guests and the affect smoke may have on them.The overwhelming majority of our guests do not smoke. And the smoking of a cigar, 15- 20 feet from other rooms and guests could raise furthers issues for us. As i have enjoyed the odd cigar in may time, i wish we could have been clearer about the smoking section, which is a lovely spot at the hotel - with a great view and comfy chairs. Thank you for your business and please accept my apology if we offended you in any way. I am also sorry i was away during your stay but i was on a much needed vacation after our busy season. Best reguards chris

We chose this hotel so that we could be within walking distance of Sebastian Beach (which is only a block away). Al and Regina took exceptional care of us for the night. Superb service. We loved that the hotel lets you use beach chairs and beach towels for the day.

A wonderful hotel that I was so lucky to find. It was very tastefully decorated, clean and inviting, and close to the beach for sunning & swimming in the warm waters. The owners and staff were very nice and accommodating and the complementary breakfast was really nice. I would highly recommend the Drift Hotel for a stay in Fort Lauderdale.

The Drift Hotel was great! Great location, close to the beach,restaurants, and bars, but still far away enough that it's quiet. Free parking which was a huge plus. They offered free towels, beach chairs, water, and coffee at all times. Their breakfast options in the morning included cereal, pastries, fruit, coffee, and more. It was perfect to eat before heading out. All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

Love this little hotel. We stayed for one night in April before our flight to Jamaica the next day. Great rate in comparison to other nearby hotels. This little hotel is at a great location just a few steps from the beach, shopping, restaurants, and bars. Very clean and beautiful property and very nice owners. This was our first time in FL and had a great experience at the Drift Hotel.

We stayed here after a cruise to make better connections on the way home. Without a car, the location close to the beach, water taxi access, and lots of resturaunt choices was ideal. The room was small but recently renovated and well maintained. The staff was extremely helpful. They accommodated early check-in and late check-out, and even provided beach towels, chairs, and an umbrella.

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 place!!

"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.

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.

"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.

"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.

This Hotel was nice, but small room.

Another thing would be nice is to have a microwave SOMEWHERE..Maybe a pop machine available SD well.

"It's the STAFF that make the experience"
Lovely older property that is in excellent condition. Renovations are obvious, but some things like the in-wall air conditioners you just cannot 'update.' The property managers live on premise, and they are the loveliest couple. Regina and Al accommodated our requests, and even volunteered an umbrella when we needed to go out in the pouring rain (we left home in a snow storm, an umbrella was not in our baggage :-) ) Location is A+ - right next to the Ritz, convenient to all the beach front shopping, restaurants, etc. The property caters to adults - we were told under 25 don't rent a room there! We will stay again when we cruise next year.

THIS VINTAGE HOTEL WAS PERFECT! WE WERE TRAVELING FROM PALM BEACH TO MIAMI, AND THE DRIFT IN FT.LAUDERDALE HIT THE SPOT. SUPER COOL KING ROOM ON THE 2ND FLOOR, A MINI APT. COOL & CLEAN. REGINNA HELPED US WITH CHECK IN, AFTER FRESHING UP WE HEADED OUT TO DINNER AT OUTBACK, AND A QUICK DRIVE DOWN LOS OLIS BLVD, COCKTAILS AT THE MAI TAI WAS A TIKI TREAT. CLICKED ON THE WALL AIR CON. AND DRIFTED AWAY ON THE HUGE KING BED. WAIKING REFRESHED SUNDAY A.M. WE STROLLED ON THE BEACH, THEN DINED IN THE COURTYARD WITH A BREAKFAST OF COFFEE,JUICES, YOGURT, DANISH, & CEREAL. NO RUSH HERE, CHATTING WITH FELLOW TRAVELERS WHO ALSO FOUND THIS HIDE-A-WAY! THE DRIFT FEELS LIKE A TRUE VINTAGE HOTEL FROM 1940, BUT STOCKED WITH A MODERN VIBE. WE WILL MAKE THIS OUR HOTEL AGAIN, ON OUR NEXT VISIT TO LAUDERDALE.

We relaxed here for two nights whilst getting ready to cruise. Small boutique hotel-just far enough from main strip to be quiet, but close enough to walk to beach, restaurants and shopping. Great to purchase those items you need but can't carry on the plane. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was adequate with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, breads, coffee and tea. Just right for us. We will definitely use again when in Ft Lauderdale. Thanks Al!

I NEVER write reviews because I am too lazy, but this time I really have to. The bottom line: go to this Drift, you will not regret, in particular if you are a couple and in love :) The hotel is great, and the location perfect, but the owners and staff are those making the place so unique. They were extremely nice and eager to help with everything and made us feel so comfortable. We are very strict VEGANS and they researched places for us, we wanted a lighter to light candles, and the owner drove at 10pm to the hotel (they don't live there) to assist us. Apparently, it's a fire hazard so we could not do it, but we still appreciated him coming all the way. We loved everything about this place and hope to return in the future.

"Lovely hotel close to the beach"
Came to Ft. Lauderdale for a long weekend and found the Drift Hotel to be a clean, and curtious place to stay. The Drift Hotel is a bed and breakfast style hotel with clean rooms and a nice central courtyard. I've been to many of the other larger beachfront hotels on my other trips here, but the friendliness of Regina and Al is something that was more heartfelt than I've experienced at the larger hotels. There are some ammenities that are not available here which could be found at the larger hotels, but with the beach a block away and plenty of resturants within walking range, the Drift Hotel was the perfect choice for my trip.

"Sweet Spot!"
Dont get confused about all the negative reviews - The Drift Hotel was completely renovated in 2014, the bad reviews are probably for the former Gigis Hotel! We stayed a couple of nights at the Drift and had a wonderful time. Everything was new and tidy, comfortable bed, cable TV, a fridge, small but nice bathroom, beautiful furniture and a wooden floor. The housekeepers Al and Regina are very charming and always helpful. Breakfast was from 8 to 9.30 in the romantic court, you get starbucks coffee, muffins, cornflakes, juice etc. The location is simply awesome! The beach is a two minute walk away, a water-taxi station is nearby, and after a ten minute walk you are in the middle of Fort Lauderdales nightlife. We wish we could have stayed longer at the Drift!
