The rooms are nice, very clean and well kept. Bathroom larger than I expected. Water pressure in the shower was great. The restaurant has a great variety. The Whitefish dinner in a bag is to die for. I would definitely go back. Right across the street from the ferries to Mackinac Island.

The rooms are nice, very clean and well kept. You can't beat the restaurant, great variety and food. The staff and service was great, everyone was very nice and helpful. We would definitely go back. Great location to a variety of sites and only a short walk across the street to board the ferry to Mackinac Island.

On a recent trip to dive the Straits of Mackinaw, we chose to stay at this location due to it's proximity to our dive charter as well as boat launch to Mackinaw Island. The room was simple but well appointed. Bathroom was large and modern. Very impressed with the staff and their attention to detail. There is also a sports... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this motel. The rooms were very clean and a decent size. Nice closet space, but no bureaus. There is a nIce restaurant and bar attached to the motel. Would definitely stay here again as this motel is priced fairly.

I've stayed here many times over the years and it is consistently clean and tidy. The staff make you feel very welcome. Having the attached restaurant/bar is a big bonus when I'm making my plans to stay in St. Ignace, it makes things very convenient.

A friend and I were in the St. Ignace vicinity to attend a 50th anniversary celebration. We needed a place to stay before returning home. The two rooms that we had were very clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. Not fancy, but very nice. I'd definitely stay there again. We also had a very nice breakfast in the restaurant. Before departing,... More

Great place to stay. It's basic bed and tv and clean. Nothing fancy but we didn't need that. Sports bar restaurant has great food and plenty of tvs. Very friendly. Coffee pot and fridge in each room. Grocery store just down the road. Nice place to break up a drive going downstate. We will return again.

Dogs are welcome at the Driftwood Motel. They cost $10.00 each. It was $66.00 for my wife and I and our 2 Rottweilers. Very clean and comfortable and quiet. Outside there are many bags and disposal cans for dog waste. We will stay here whenever we travel from Bessemer to Allegan. We recommend the food in the adjoining restaurant also.

What can I say?! It was an all around memorable experience. The staff were so welcoming and accommodating, the bar has great drinks, and I slept like a baby! I don't remember the last time I enjoys a motel so much! I can't recommend this place highly enough for any of your St Ignace/Mackinac Island shenanigans! First stop, the mighty... More
