The motel is clean and mattresses are new. We rented two rooms 5 & 6 and both were identical in being well maintained. The squeaky hinges were did need oil on their new doors. Many chain hotels do not have a refrigerator and microwave and they did have that. I would stay here again as long as they kept the... More

The Driftwood Hotel is a great place to stay for a traveling night. It is located close off the interstate with easy access. The price is very good and it is a very clean motel. It is one story so you can park in front of the room. The beds are comfy enough for a good sleep. All in all,... More

When I got off the interstate at 1 a.m., I stopped at one of the chain motels. They quoted me $65 for a room on second floor, overlooking the pool, making a special note that I wouldn't be able to see my car. I decided to drive on toward town a bit. The Driftwood Motel looked like a nice enough... More

I can't believe someone wants a good,free continental breakfast at their rates. I have stayed at this motel twice in my summer travels.The bigger hotels were booked,so we gave it a try and was very pleased.Clean rooms and a huge ice machine by the office!

Driftwood advertised free continental breakfast which was deceiving. They provided coffee and cookies only, on a stand by the check in desk. The room was clean and beds comfortable, but had no amenities other than bed, tv, bathroom,shower and sink. Not worth the price compared to other hotels in the area. AAA this does not deserve a 2 star rating... More

This would not be a place I would stay at again. The rooms were not in great shape and not as clean as I would expect. The bedsheet had a cigarette burn hole, the toilet had not been flushed from a previous guest (or housekeeping), the TV reception was horrible, and the carpets were not swept well. No extras in...

Very clean motel - rooms have been freshened up - very clean - I only wish they'd have softer mattresses - but for $36 a night - who's going to complain

We stayed at The Driftwood while looking for a house or land in the area. Always found the management pleasant and the room clean and well maintained.

We stayed here last year after arriving in the middle of the night....no reservation.....no problem. The room was reasonably priced, clean and safe. It is no frills but it is a decent night's sleep. I kept their business card to return there again when traveling. It is also AAA approved for those who are members like we are.
