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 The inn needs a facelift as the rooms are looking outdated and furniture in sad shape.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

There is no dining room or bar so you are on your own as far as eating and drinking. Coffee in morning in lobby. Rooms are... More

We wanted a quiet relaxing beach vacation. Well, the beach was quiet and relaxing but our room #14 was clean but had old uncomfortable furniture that needed updating. We were told it had a fully stocked kitchenette. Well, the first morning we went to make coffee at 6:30 am and no coffee pot and very few other supplies to cook... More

My son wanted a relaxed beach wedding. This spot was perfect for our needs. We had around 100 people attend. Our wedding guests stayed on property and made a mini vacation of it. The rooms are large and fully equipped. We cooked our meals here and enjoyed fantastic scenery and sunsets every waking moment. Staff was more than accommodating, David... More

We were greeted in the lobby by jojo the parrot and he waved as i took his picture. The front staff didnt appear rude as some reviews have stated but dry. What do you want from people its probably boring sitting there all day. Anyways, she seemed to be helpful enough for us. The room was average but comfortable and... More

Mexico beach is so incredible and this inn is the perfect place to enjoy it. Earlier in the day I actually was disappointed in what's seemed like miles of condos, then we drove into Mexico beach and wow! Just what we were looking for. Quaint, a little eccentric, and so welcoming. Love it!!! Great service, great price, clean rooms, great... More

This is a great place to go if looking for a relaxing place away from your hectic life. Very quiet sleepy beach town during our visit August 2013. Room was fine for two people, futon located in kitchen area. Cottage #4 right on the beach. Loved the gardens and shade areas. Wonderful being greeted by Woody the Harlequin colored- Great... More
