“Quaint little hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Hotel is smaller and older but renovations are in progress and are making a big difference. The location is great right on the beach with pool and beach access steps away. The staff is very accommodating and very helpful. Would recommend for family trip and look forward to returning again.

Deserves more than 1 star. Our room was clean (and that's a biggie for me) and the staff made us feel so welcome, i.e. very friendly, helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay a great experience. Definitely recommend to those on a budget! Will definitely go back. Thanks guys!

We booked this place for our family trip to the beach. We chose it because it sits on a very nice section of the beach. The issue I have with Driftwood is this: They knew that our room was jacked up and stuck us in there anyway. The overhead light did not work. There was a desk lamp and a floor lamp. The bathroom was a different story. A previous customer had jammed seashells into the tub drain. When you took a shower, the water would fill up past your ankles. Sand and other beach gunk was left in the tub because when the water finally drained, it left behind everything. I am not happy that the management and staff knew about the problems but offered no solution. Being moved to a new room would have been nice or receiving a discount on the room would have worked. This first experience is also the last experience.

This place is pretty nice for the price. The locaton is awesome. Everything needs updating, but if you are not an uptight jerk, it will suffice. The staff is very nice and helpful.
The rooms are more like apartments and I would come back.

I spent 4 nights exactly one year ago had a problem where I got hurt due to lighting in the stairway I got there this year and the problem was fixed as for bugs I did not see one roach or palmeto bug at all they are in contract with a specilist to prevent them which all places in Florida should only problem I had was they provide silverwear and dishes there was not enough for the whole family we had one fork the refrigerator was tiny we had a ok tv but I did notice they are in the process of replacing them. Guess we will have to try one more time to see if they get it perfect if not time to move on to the next one....I would recommend this place if your on a budget.

The rooms were dirty, bathrooms were not clean, sheets were yellow and dingy, and we had roaches inside and outside the room. The motel is old, which would not have been a problem if the rooms were clean. I would not stay here again nor will I recommend this motel to anyone.
