The Driftwood Motel is a cute, old fashioned motel. All rooms are ground level. The good is the bathroom and shower which were nice and seemed to be recently remodeled. The beds were quite comfortable. The chairs in the room were rather old and not in good shape. The housekeeping service was good with the exception of the coffee maker which was never cleaned (we stayed 4 nights). The housekeeper just replaced the actual coffee packets but did not provide new creamers, stirring sticks, etc.
The motel's greatest asset is it's location which directly across from the ferries to Mackinac Island and a small beach on Lake Huron. St. Ignace's downtown with restaurants and shops is also within easy walking distance.
