I stayed here one night in a ground-level room whose back door opened on a pretty patio next to the Gulf shore. Dog-friendly, the floors and walls are lined with clean, white tiles. There was a nice kitchenette built into the room, and the rest of the room was furnished with large antique pieces (a huge bed, a murphy bed,... More

We got married at this beautiful place 9/26/15 and it was perfect! Peggy, Amy, and Shawna are so generous and helpful with everything. They help as much or as little as you wish. We have been coming here for almost 10 years. When we first met Peggy, we were being evicted from the area because of a hurricane and Peggy... More

Shangra-la oasis on Gulf of Mexico! Beautiful, gorgeous and clean. Family owned. Don't miss this one - it's the best in The Panhandle! The gardens and gingerbread trim and decor was perfect! Laurie Fabick

We were very pleasantly surprised by this inn. We selected it because it is pet friendly and got a lot for our money in many ways. The room was spacious and clean and in good repair. The view was fabulous, with our room overlooking the garden and the beach. I loved the birds all over the property with the bird... More

Where do I start. This is our favorite place to stay at Mexico Beach. We come here as often as we can because we love the closeness to the beach, the staff and accomadations. We enjoy the older funiture and feel like we are in what Florida must have been like 50 years ago. If you want entertainment Panama City... More

Red tide cut visit short & we were allowed early departure with no penalty though this isn't advertised; historic building & beach access are appealing but crowded location (ad photos misleading) town is disappointing --too busy. Lobby is cluttered, room was large but bath tiny, full kitchen w/ coffeemaker but not even coffee packets! (Coffee in lobby but not as... More

We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay at the Driftwood Inn. From the very accomidating staff, the cleanliness of our cottage, the antiques and rustic feel of the cabin, the beautiful grounds with gorgeous plants, fountains and statues, swings to the beautiful beach front. We got married right out front! We will definitely be back and will refer... More

Enjoyed our visit at Driftwood as usual! Staff (including dog and bird) were all cheerful and helpful which was welcome. As I have said before in earlier reviews, Driftwood is a bit out of step with the expected beach accommodations, but in a good way. We always have fun here! It's all about location. 4 stars for that alone.

This place is very charming and quaint and sits right on the beach. It is a welcome respite in a world of cookie cutter motels. Sit on the porch outside tour room with a glass of wine and listen to the waves break on Mexico Beach. You are 8n your own little world. Very relaxing.
