The room was clean and that is about all. No shampoo, no clock, no coffee in room, the free wifi only worked when they turned in the parking lot lights. They didn't honor their coupon in the hotel travel book. The continental breakfast was a sugar glazed bun in plastic. Very poorly represented.

We were extremely pleased with our room. The housekeeping service is EXCELLENT, and I should know, having once owned my own cleaning business. Even though everything looked clean and smelled clean, I had to see for myself. I retreived my own cleaning supplies and went to work...ALL FOR NOT. I am elated to report that the only speck of dust... More

Very basic hotel. There was NO breakfast as advertised, unless you consider a packaged cinnamon roll equals breakfast. The bed was very comfortable. AC unit cooled the room down quickly. The staff was pleasant. The bathroom was okay....but no shampoo :(

We checked in late night after a drive from Jacksonville. It was clean, bed was comfortable, but no iron in the room. Perfect place to sleep, then get back on the road. It is on the main strip of Lake City, easy to find.

The motel is what it is. It is an older motel in need of updating and TLC. Having said that, it is relatively inexpensive, convenient to the highway, operated by pleasant folks, and okay for a one night no frills, you're on your stop.

For $50? Two queen beds, microwave and refrigerator (we'll see if it actually works or not)... no breakfast or in room coffee but across the street from Walmart (of course...) and half way to Orlando... it'll do!

We went with friends to the Florida Folk Festival and stayed at the Driftwood Motel in rooms six and seven. These rooms were an excellent value. Plus, the inkeeper cared and provided friendly, caring service. I phoned ahead to make sure all was in order with our reservations, they were, and the innkeeper made special effort in turning on the... More

Stopped here for one night. We needed a hotel that allowed pets and that had reasonable rates and this was a great choice. The owner/ operator is friendly and helpful; the room we had was very clean and we heard NO road noise, a/ c worked great. This is an older single level roadside motel, probably build in the 60's...

We were driving through Lake City to a job and this motel looked nice. We called around and the Driftwood was very affordable. We looked at a room before we checked in and it was surprisingly clean and comfortable for a mom and pop spot. The clientele seems to be workers and older travelers. The site is quiet and relaxed....

We had been traveling looking for a home in different areas of Florida. Staying at hotels can be costly. We picked up a hotel book for the area and found this one, The price with the coupon was $39.95 per night. Was leery of this price so we checked first. Went to the desk and they would not accept our... More
