If you are looking for a little piece of paradise on the Indian River in Jensen Beach, then look no further than the Driftwood Motel. Family owned since 1958 it is Florida charm and hospitality at its finest. Our one bedroom 1/2 duplex was clean and well equipped with comfortable beds and adequate space for all four of us. The...

Since I was born an raised in Florida the Driftwood took me back to my childhood of the '50 and '60's. A great little motel that has spacious room in a beautiful setting. Thank you for keeping part of Florida's history as it was but with remodeled and updated amenities.

There is only one place that my family stays when we visit the Jensen Beach/Stuart area and it's at the Driftwood Motel. The cottages are always clean, kept in great condition and well-maintained. The proximity to the water is hard to beat. My kids love the dock and were excited to see all kinds of fish and water creatures in... More

Thank you for your great review. It's always nice having you and your family at the Driftwood. The fishing pier is always a hit with the children that stay. Reading your review brings me back to the days I was a very young child fishing off the pier at the Driftwood with my Granddad and Uncles..My Grandfather and I would... More

My wife and I stayed at Driftwood Motel on May 23. The cottage we stayed in was spacious and comfortable, with several sitting areas, an eat-in kitchen, cable TV in several rooms, and well-done finishes in the bathroom and kitchen - definitely not what you typically have in mind when you think of "motels". While those amenities were great, though,... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights the first week of March. We had an absolutely fantastic time. The cottage was extremely clean & it was extremely nice to have cups, plates, microwave etc. We had a great time enjoying local attractions and the beach was only a 5 minute drive away. Lots of great places to have dinner... More

We stayed only for a night. Cottage was very clean and the grounds are well kept. Great location close to the heart of town with a beautiful waterfront view. Owners very relaxed and worked with our schedule when check in and out.

We desired a room with a view in the Port St Lucie Florida area and stumbled upon the Driftwood Motel along the Intercoastal waterway near Jensen Beach. It's a fine place to stay. Everybody with a vested interest in the place was very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. My wife, me, and our two Basset Hounds had a... More

This was our 5th visit to the Driftwood; 3 weeks each time until this year when we stayed for 6 enjoyable weeks. We were pleased to find a new flat screen TV and lamp in our favorite Unit 6. Owner Irene, her husband Bob, and Deb, the cleaning gal, have always been accommodating, fixing problems promptly (broken sink stopper, hard-to-crank... More

We stayed one entire week in Cottage 9. Freight trains went by SEVERAL times a night with whistles blasting - thought I was ON the train. Not warned before hand. As we sat outside, we had a wonderful view of the dumpster. Had to move our chairs to the parking lot to see the causeway bridge and water view. The... More

It's disappointing to get a negative review. As you can see most of my reviews are very favorable. I have had customers returning for over 30 yrs. The Chamber of Commerce refers their friends. In fact I have a couple leaving Wednesday after a month that get tearful when they have to leave and have booked for next year for... More

The Driftwood motel & cabins is a very special place. The cottages are lovely and very clean and cozy. The views are spectacular. It was a very peaceful and tranquil atmosphere. We stayed in cabin 8 for two weeks and did not want to leave. Have already booked it for next year. Irene, the proprietor was very accommodating. The Driftwood... More
