We really enjoyed our visit to AMI and our stay at Driftwood Motel (it should really be called an Inn or something like that). lol Patty was so helpful from the time of booking and all the way through our week stay. We loved it's close proximity to everything and the beach is just a quick stroll down 52nd street.... More

Patti made us most welcome, first by offering to let us check in the morning after our 9pm arrival, then by being a guide to the area. The room was comfy and well-stocked with linens. There were beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas available too to take to the beach. Salt-water pool was sparkling and there's plenty of seating around the... More

Our RV had a breakdown, we were without our home while it was in the repair shop. Luckily the Driftwood had a vacancy and could book us in for 1 or 2 nights (we stayed the extra night)! What a find! Squeeky clean, close to restaurants and the beach, FAB pool! The room was huge and really was an efficiency... More

My daughters and I had such a great time and could not have been happier with our stay at the Driftwood Motel. The location is fabulous. The owner/manager Patty was there most of the time and very accommodating. There was a great pool,short walk to beach,access to all markets and island exploring. She provided beach chairs,umbrellas,etc.. Beds were comfy,everything clean,towels... More

Just getting ready to head home from a week at the Driftwood Motel with my mom and sister. We chose this location based on the other TripAdvisor reviews and could not have been happier here. We are 55, 29, and 26 and I think this would be great for anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing, home-like experience. We were in... More

The hotel is satisfactory. We have stayed at a few other places in Anna Maria but decided to make this trip at the last minute. Our favorite places were booked so we picked a room at the Driftwood. Our room was satisfactory. We asked if we could get a late checkout on Sunday morning(we would have even payed additional) because... More

This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island, and Patty made it a great experience! The owners really care about their property. The rooms are incredibly clean and it felt like home during our stay. They think of everything you could possibly need. Full kitchen with dishes, frozen mugs in the freezer, and chairs and umbrellas to take to... More

Traveled with my husband and our 4 children. Ages 17, 10, 7, and 14 months. The MOM in me gave the room the "no sock" test... meaning that when we checked in, I immediately took off my sandals and walked all over the room, feeling for any particle or dirt or grime.... nothing. I went to the fridge and opened... More

We have been going to the island for many years and usually rent a house for the whole week. We only had a 4 day weekend this year so needed to find a motel. I was a little skeptical about the pictures on the website but when I spoke to them they said everything had been renovated. I was very... More
