The Driftwood Lodge is a decent motel and I enjoyed my stay. The Driftwood is clean, affordable and has a great location! It's right on the beach and its a couple of feet from Pier Park! Driftwood even has plenty of grills for the guests to use, gas and charcoal grills. Next time I will definitely cook out, while enjoying... More

Awesome as always. Love this place and all the staff!! The new updates were very nice. This is truly a family owned and run motel. It just wouldn't be summer vacation without staying here. It is always well kept with a warm family feel. The BBQ dinner night was Great food at a great price. Don't miss out.

Went with my wife and daughter. Hotel is not new but very well maintained. Location is the best, we were lucky and got a room one step from the beach. All other rooms are also very close. Rooms are clean, not too large but with enough space. It has microwave, fridge, toaster, sink, some cutlery, can opener too, small dining... More

I was looking for a place exactly like this. Independent on the beach. I felt like I had been thrown back to the 1960s and that is a compliment. The room was spotless with terrazo floors and large verticle blinds with a perfect view of the beach that was right out the door. I met repeat guests that had been... More

We were looking specifically for a family-oriented small hotel to spend our vacation since we have a 3 year old in-tow. I've been to PCB many times, back in my early 20s when I was a partier, and stayed at the East end of the beach, near Club LaVela. I wanted something very different. Someplace where my daughter would be... More

Driftwood is a older resort but well maintained and our room was fresh and clean but spartan. We would have enjoyed the weekend more if it wasn't so damn cold. If your looking for a nice clean and reasonably priced place to stay near the Panama City Beach pier Driftwood would be a good choice.
