“Conveniently located and a fine choice in Deer Lake”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

the inn is well located. It's only a few minutes from the airport and within walking distance of most of Deer Lake's restaurants and a couple of grocery stores. My room (one double bed) was quite small, but it was clean and modern and the wireless internet worked flawlessly. Service was very friendly and helpful. It had the feel of a local establishment, which I like. I would definitely stay here again on a visit to Deer Lake.

We stayed in the two bedroom suite at the Driftwood Inn. Very nice unit. Large kitchen, fully equipped. Large jacuzzi tub with seperate shower stall. A great spot to stay while in Deer Lake. Barbecue, full size fridge, dishwasher, stove, etc. Good for long term stays. Staff friendly and helful. Barbecue as well and drive up unit. Very clean and comfortable.

This hotel had recently updated their rooms , including flat screens new bedding etc, its a ok spot for a couple of nights, they also have a really nice 2 bedroom suite with Jacuzzi tun separate shower table and chairs couch 2 flat screens all cooking utensils and kitchen, this suit has a small patio with a bbq you can also use. Although is hotel is very old it has be updated to a nice standard and also has Jungle Jims restaurant on main level and little Jimmy's Pub downstairs where you can get all the same food as offered upstairs, but it is also a bar with a few lottery machines and atm.

I arrived after 2:00am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning. The concierge was a very nice woman who checked me in quickly and helped my with my bag up one flight of stairs. The room was fine, facing out the front of the hotel but the view was only across the street (as I found out the next day). Comfy room, good sleep, great shower the next day. Recommended for late arrivals into Deer Lake.

We had a room booked for four adults, and when we arrived our room was gone. We booked a double room on a Wednesday morning and when we arrived at 5 oclock on Friday the room was no longer available. We travelled from Lewisporte to Deer Lake on Quad with friends and the receptionist told us that another worker had taken our booking. She made a mistake and booked us for a single room instead of a double room and that there were no double rooms left just that 1 singlr room. We would of gotten another room but this single room was the only one left!!!!!! I would never go to this hotel ever again. We didn't even get anything in return for this mistake, hardly even an apology........Very Poor Service :(

I noticed the awful smell in the hallway before we even came across the terrible smell in the room itself; it smelled like cat urine so badly we had to air it out with the temperature below freezing. The room was very small and poorly designed and cost FAR too much for what we got. And that a Jungle Jim was the only food option was also disappointing. I cannot recommend this place to anyone.

Our room smelled so bad from the chemical used to cover up the other stench that our noses and throats burned. The floor was rotten under the old carpet, so that it felt like we were going to go through the floor. The place felt so grungy, it was difficult to sleep. This place should be condemned. Also, there were no amenities, such as an iron or coffee in the room.
