Great place to visit and really close to everything. Just one short block to the beach and chairs are provided. Would definitely recommend and also go back to this quiet and wonderful place. You can't go wrong with a stay in this place.

This is our second time staying at this motel and it is extremely clean and comfortable. They allow you to bring your dogs for a small fee. The owner is always onsite and helpful. We will be back again soon!

The room was clean and spacious. It was only 2 blocks from the beach and the owner was very helpful! Told us of things we should see while on our stay! WILL COME BACK! I would recommend this place to anyone!

Patty was over the top great. The rooms were clean and very homey. 2 blocks from the beach and I suggest the Monkey bus for rides. I would stay here again hands down. Lots to do within walking distance and very reasonably priced for the value.

Spacious, great decor, fully furnished with everything you will need. We enjoyed cooking out with the gas grill near the pool. Walking distance to beach. Beach chairs and umbrellas provided. Complete privacy. Patty was... More

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

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
