Nice and quiet with comfortable rooms. My wife is handicapped and we were able to borrow a Beach Wheelchair at one of the realtors in town (I wish I could remember). Ask at the desk, they may know where.

Reminded me of my childhood trips to Florida. It may be showing its age but so are we. It's called patina. There are so few of these places left. This place is all about the beach. Can't beat the view or ease of access. Out the back door and you're on the sand. Clear, calm water with a very private... More

Okay people, if you want a circus type place to stay, go up to Panama City!! People complain about the most stupid things. Yes, this Inn is in a different time zone where relaxing is just the thing to do. The rooms are clean and the furniture is antique. You are on the ocean front with million dollar views any... More

There were 3 couples in our group and each couple had a room. We all enjoyed our stay and enjoyed the time with owner and staff. They were all great. Rooms were very nice and clean. Beach was GREAT. Staff recommended the Internet Cafe and it was very good also. This was the third year for one of the couples... More

OK, so it's not the Ritz Carlton, but Driftwood is interesting. The Staff (including the very large and noisy bird) leaves a bit to be desired. I got the distinct impression that most of the guests are returning and "know the ropes". I traveled with my daughter and this was our first stay. Later, her comment was like it felt... More

We rented cottage #4 for 2 nights, right on the beach and perfect for us! Queen bed for my husband and I and futon for our daughter. Nice full kitchen too. Definitely recommend! Adding photos of the property and inside of the cottage. Chairs on the porch with coffee and breeze... Heaven :)

I have to pretty much agree with the last review written about the conditions of the Driftwood Inn but have to say what a perfect beach location and outside property this is. The inn needs a facelift as the rooms are looking outdated and furniture in sad shape. didn't have a cleanliness issue with our cottage. this is just such... More

Wow. Southern charm is limited to the dated facade. The space this "Inn" occupies on the beachfront is the only reason it remains operational. Sure the flowers are nice, the decks, and outdoor spaces are welcoming, but that's the end of anything resembling comfort. The staff are all frowning. One brief conversation with the owner reveals why, I no longer... More
