Great place - you will enjoy it!!

Beach was great even though we couldn't really use it because of the storm. Friendly desk people. Room was old but clean and great location to beach. Would stay here again.

love it all

Beach front

Close to beach and pool very nice hotel close to all the attractions on the beach

A little on the run down side.......................

Our original hotel had maintenance problems and we were upgraded to the Driftwood Lodge. It was amazing!! Our cabana was literally steps from the beach!! Would definitely stay at Driftwood Lodge again in the future!!

Very friendly staff. Loved the room. They are getting a new roof, so you have to walk around to get to lobby. Great experience for me

Old school, but modern enough. Recommend this place for an authentic Panama City experience.

Location, location, location!! Very close to beach which we enjoyed so much. The weather was beautiful. The cleaning of our room could have been better. For example, the bath tub was not touched some days. We used public transportation, which was a little hectic at times. We would probably rent a car next time so that we would more easily be able to visit more great restaurants in the area. We did use Uber.

On great beach, close to good eating places and Walmart and Target, be sure to get a room with kitchen if you don’t plan on eating out every nite, esp to go to Buddy’s fresh Seafood market and buy your fresh fish/lobster/shrimp, a few fixings can be bought, have them steam them (they use fresh butter, spices, lemon, pepper) take them to your room to eat with whatever and whomever you want. Love 💕 it all and the bronze tan you take home is a bonus!!!

Very nice place directly on the beach. At no time did it seem crowded and you almost had the place to yourself! It's a block or two away from the pier so very walkable and some laid back restaurants nearby. For spring break it was a pleasant surprise to find no crazy crowds like we have encountered in the past. Propane and charcoal grills, hot tub was nice, several pools to choose from, viewing decks. As a guest you are able to use the facilities at the Osprey. Not spotless but it is on the beach so you cannot get around the salt air that rusts bolt, etc. but you can tell that they are really making an effort to keep the palace in good order. To the staff, keep up the good work and we will return the next time we are in PCB!! THANKS!!

Was a great stay except for the early checckout. 10am is too early of a checkout. I will seek out somewhere else where I do not have to get out of the room so early

Step into the Driftwood Lodge and you are transported back to another time. It has a feel of a hotel before all the generic high rises existed. 2 floors all with Gulf views, 3 heated pools, a very large grill area, kitchenette with full size fridge and private seating areas. The staff was very friendly offering afternoon popcorn and coffee in the morning. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Nice place for couples and families. No Spring Breakers running amuck. We will definitely return!

Very cute and quaint, grounds were very well kept. It's older but well kept, clean and in close proximity to everything. We booked it last mintute and it was perfect for our needs. It's close to the street so it was a little noisy at times but too bad.

This location is right in the heart of PCB. Close to all the fun attractions, right on the beach. Our trip was a quick weekend getaway. The staff at the Driftwood took great care of accommodating our short stay.
