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 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

All the name brand hotels I normally stay at were very price, so we took a chance on this place. Looks like the hotel is totally run by a husband/ wife team. They even to the cleaning and making up the rooms. I was pleasantly surprised. While I would not rate this place 4 stars if it was a Hilton... More

The customer service is despicable. The owner refuses to let you cancel your reservation. If you call and cancel and are told that is no problem he will still charge your credit card. RECORD YOUR CONVERSATION.

I stayed there 3 days for some cave scuba training. The room was clean, but not fancy. Could park right outside the room. The motel is a single level. Was nice to not have to carry 100's of pounds of gear up & down stairs. Very convenient. Close to great restaurants & across the street from a Wal-Mart. Equal distance... More

Pictures are worth a thousand words. Well we asked for non smoking and the room didn't smell to bad. However upon opening bed we found burn holes in the covers. Ceiling in bath has paint falling off. This being said, the motel is old and needs a lot of fixing up. Since this isn't cost effective this will be a... More

Older motel fairly clean. Bath could use a mildew/mold treatment but not terrible. Everything else clean, carpets clean enough for bare feet, bed comfortable. Better than you would expect for $45. No breakfast or toiletries but quiet and check in was quick and staff pleasant and courteous. We were able to see the room before checking in which is always... More
