We stayed 3 nights Labor Day Weekend 2014. We were in town to walk the bridge. I am glad we stayed in St Ignace rather than Mackinaw City. It was quiet and MUCH less crowded. The shuttle to the bridge start line was within walking distance from the hotel. Hotel had free shuttle to/from the Casino. Our room was in... More

We stayed in room 120,which is a double room, we stayed there on aug15,16. We were there when all of the GoldWings were there which was very cool as there were motorcycles every were in St.Ignace. The Driftwood is right across from Starline and Sheplers ferries,so we sat out on the courtyard and watched the ferries come and go. The... More

So roomy you could pitch a curve ball from the front door to the back! The price far exceeded expectations, too.This definitely is value for money with first class shower and bed. Superbly located by the lake with terrific views, and just a two minute walk to one of the Mackinac Island ferries, and most downtown shops. Comfy, quiet with... More

Did I mention there was a huge bathroom? Personally I love that... There was a refrigerator and ample hanging space... The bed was comfortable and I felt the room was clean and secure. There is a bar and restaurant attached so you don't have to travel far for meals. Great view of the water.

I've stayed at the Driftwood many times over the years. The rooms are competitively priced, remodeled, modern and always clean and comfortable. The staff is always friendly. The motel is located on the edge of downtown and a convenient, 2 minute walk to a great restaurant and bar. I stay at the Driftwood whenever I am in St. Ignace for... More

The Driftwood Motel is a cute, old fashioned motel. All rooms are ground level. The good is the bathroom and shower which were nice and seemed to be recently remodeled. The beds were quite comfortable. The chairs in the room were rather old and not in good shape. The housekeeping service was good with the exception of the coffee maker... More

Cute, cozy, and clean. Newly remodeled bathroom. Very friendly service. Great price. Close to ferry lines. Good, cheap breakfast. Nice place to stay with a dog. Felt kind of retro, in a good way. Would definitely stay here again if we're in St. Ignace!

Have stayed here twice, the most recent trip this past weekend. Rooms are clean, beds comfortable and the attached restaurant has outstanding food. The only minor complaint is that their WiFi can be hard to connect to. Not enough of a problem to prevent me from staying here again, however. I have already made reservations for our next family trip... More

Nice little motel across the street from the water. Clean and friendly. Has a restaurant attached with adult beverages. Had a good breakfast before leaving for Mackinac Island. Boat ferries are right across the street. Beds a little firm. Good price.

This review is a difficult one to write simply because the restaurant and motels service was vastly different. The restaurant: Absolutely great. Quiet, fast, great food. Service was wonderful. Went in and out throughout our week of stay and had no issues anytime of day. Drinks and food were quality for the price. Ate at several locations in town and... More

hannah2-7, Owner at Driftwood Motel, responded to this review

Thank you for your recent review. I was pleased that you enjoyed the restaurant. I would like to apologize for the displeasure with your motel room. There is no excuse for trash being left in the room. I have taken this up with our housekeeping department. Unfortunately, this area has a decent amount of problematic insects, including ticks. We do... More
