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

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

We stayed here for only one night but wish we could have stayed longer. The " Honeymoon Suite" had everything that we needed and then some. It was furnished with a tropical motif and was very spacious. It even had a separate living room. My favorite part is the dock just across the street that we watched a beautiful sunrise... More

We were staying in Florida for a couple of days over Christmas on our way to sailing in the Abacos, Bahamas. Wanted to stay in a place that reflected the charm of Old Florida, and the Driftwood certainly filled the bill! The property consists of several turquoise painted buildings which lend a tropical air. We stayed in Cottage 6 which... More
