It had been a few months since we had stayed at the Driftwood Motel and we were in desperate need of a visit. As we arrived we felt a breeze from the Indian River and were greeted by Brandy (the dog.) Everything was right. The cottage, as always, was clean and welcoming. The motel is a fews minutes from great... More

This place is a great bargain. I recommend unit 3. You have three exposures, all with views of the water, which create nice cross breezes. We had cocktails every evening on the little patio overlooking the water. Laid back beaches are just minutes away over the bridge. The owner was very accommodating. She even picked up a grill for us... More

If you want the experience of "Old Florida" then this is the place. This is our 3rd year at this motel and we love it. It is a laid back, relaxing place to stay. The rooms are clean and the owner comes to the motel every single day! If you are staying for multiple days you will not have a... More

We wanted to experience the coast, flora and fauna and some vintage USA and you have all that here in Jensen Beach. The units are extremely clean, comfortable and a good price. You will not find cheaper in such a good location. Irene and her husband care for this family owned motel and nothing is a trouble. WiFi available for... More

First, let me say the review from "portpatrick" makes me sick. I'm glad the owner of the Driftwood posted her response. We visit at least twice a year. We stay for a month in the winter and usually 1-2 weeks in the summer. If you want a fancy pants room with a mint on the pillow and someone to hold... More

We are an older couple with a dog returning to the Driftwood for the third year, staying nearly a month each time so far. We have stayed in two different units (5 & 6) and each year we have noticed nice improvements to the property and rooms. We love the quaint "old Florida" feel. Our rooms have always been spotless...

We booked and paid for a night by credit card so had no choice but to stay or pay again elsewhere. I did not find the place charming or clean. The furniture and fittings were very worn and old and it was definitely not clean. The fridge had not been cleaned and there were things in it from the previous... More

I knew when this couple arrived there was going to be issues. A short time later they called me to say the carpet had an odor and the carpet was less than one year old and had just been cleaned. I had not yet charged them for the room as he had stated in his review. I told them they... More

This a very relaxing,clean and friendly place to stay. I would recommend this to any one. My husband and I have been on a road trip since January 23rd and have stayed in Double trees And LaQuintas and they were all nice but our very favorite is Driftwood in Jenson Beach. The owner is Irene and she makes you feel... More

It was my first time staying at the Driftwood but I knew the stay would be pleasant based upon the photos and history of the motel. I was not disappointed. I arrived late and Irene made sure the room was open and I had everything necessary for my stay. The views were awesome of the river even though I did... More

We were supposed to be in a different room but a mistake was made and it was given to someone else. The owner was very apologetic and gave us a discount. I'm guessing it was because the room they gave us was very clean but VERY old. The cabinetry and kitchen were so old that it was comical. I'm hoping... More

I apologize for not meeting all of your expectations. Unfortunately, the room we had reserved for you had a stay-over that we could not get to move to another room. It is the peak of the season and we had open was the one we offered you. Most of our rooms are fishing-camp style rooms, meaning everything is spotlessly clean... More
