This is the second time we have stayed at Driftwood Motel. The motel is well placed for the beach and local bars/restaurants. It is clean and the rooms are very well equipped. Patty is on hand with advice and help if and when needed. The pool is a great end to a day on the beach. A great place to... More

What a delightful little gem we found the Driftwood Motel to be, located on Anna Maria Island in Holmes Beach, Florida. Only 6 units to the entire place, we found it absolutely charming and non-commercialized. Patty (the proprietor -- who calls New Jersey "home") sounds tough over the phone but has a heart of gold. She has thought of everything... More

Patty the owner and her family are lovely people and are very welcoming, they are always happy to help and give recommendations of places to visit and dine in. The accommodation is spacious,...

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!

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
