Recent guest reviews

Upon arrival, we realized this property is far from chill and relaxed. There about 40 people at the beach area and the pier celebrrating a birthday with loud music ton of coolers and multiple bbq-s setup. It was far from the quiet, relaxed atmosphere that was this hotel advertised as. If you’re looking for a classic Florida Keys experience, this hotel is not the place to stay at. Don’t be fooled by the pictures and videos (like we were).

Everyone was wonderful, helpful and friendly

The room is not worth more than $ 75 a night and im being nice, you get a broken squeaky bed, bad matress, noisy traffic no stove just a single hot plate, no place to sit except a for a tiny and i do mean tiny dinette set. Cheap Cheap Cheap i paid $400 a night

The room was clean but we were very disappointed in the size of the king “suite” I would hardly call it a suite my hubby is 6’5” and had to leave the bathroom door open to sit on the throne.. Decor was cheap and flimsy the bikes were worn out and the bike trail was not rideable close by… it was a cold windy day so the beachfront was not working for us either the view was beautiful!! We got nice pictures but that was about it if you want to go out for dinner be prepared to drive a short distance… we could not wait to leave our 3 day stay a big waste after a 25 hour flight off to key west !!

I loved the hotel itself. The area around the property was all private property. There wasn't anywhere you could go except for a walk along the highway that didn't cost money.

We had an excellent stay at the Drift. It was a great place to just relax and be away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The property was clean. The dock was very nice to just relax and take in the surroundings. The front desk girls were so nice and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

What a quaint beautiful laid back little hotel. Exactly what I would picture in the Florida Keys. Highly recommend!

Cleaning help gathered outside early each morning and talked loudly ..very inconsiderate of guests.

The property itself is quiet and pretty, easy to access and was a great location for getting to many acticities or dining quickly.

I liked that you could fish and snorkel in the water right off the property. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The Drift has the old school Florida one~level flat roof motel vibe but the property is so inviting and cozy. The room is basic and clean. We slept well on the beds. Looks remodeled and offers nice soaps and shampoo. Free kayak and bicycle use and nice beach front with plenty of shade all around make it that much more desirable. My only complaint was no microwave or community kitchen available as we had leftovers we wanted to reheat. But that wouldn’t keep me from returning.

The location was really good

one level, kayaks, beach, dock, parking outside of room

Had its own private beach with nice deck.

Hotel and Beach were very clean. I love the atmosphere and the people. Would definitely go again.

The property was beautiful. It was incredibly peaceful and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be coming back.
