My wife and I stayed here for these past three nights as out of town guests from Cleveland. It's been years since we stayed here after hearing and reading about this Motels decline in quality. Without a lot of options in Rogers, we stayed in room 219 and were pleasantly surprised. Yes, it is dated. We used to stay here... More

We stayed here over the weekend. It is a great location for hiking, walking, shopping, eating, drinking, biking and of course the LAKE ; need I say more. The hotel has somewhat aged, but the room was clean. Service from Trish was wonderful, hospitable, courteous and very pleasant. We enjoyed our view from upstairs room # 216, I will attach... More

Great location. View of the lake and a short walk to the shore. Park right outside your room. Nice staff; friendly. A step above the typical non chain owner operated motel. We paid $75 in late October. Free breakfast was adequate but nothing special. Clean but just tired. We would stay there again.

Very mixed feelings here. I wish I could give a 2.5 rating, but I bumped it up to a 3 because my experience may have been a fluke. The location is wonderful. I woke up with a beautiful sunrise on the lake and it's right near downtown. The breakfast was really not bad and the coffee was good, and I... More

We ended up at the Driftwood after our car unfortunately decided to break down on a Friday afternoon and ended up being somewhat stranded in a city we knew nothing about until it was fixed. The Driftwood was actually the third motel we tried to get a room in - the other two along US 23 either didn't have a... More

A very nice, quaint and friendly, small town motel. Don't expect a lot, but you'll probably get what you paid for: This isn't the Grand Hotel in Manhattan. But the staff are exceptionally friendly (as are most people in Rogers City). The breakfast room is small and although it's not gourmet, most people should be able to make due with... More

Road weary after over 3 weeks on the road we riding around Rogers City when we found the Driftwood Motel. It is located on Lake Huron. We did not have a reservation but Heidi treated us like we were family. The motel has a continental breakfast available, the rooms were large with a balcony and a great view of Lake... More
