“Great Value, Friendly Owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

At $75 my wife and I had expected something less than we found. The room was large, clean and tastefully decorated. Yes it is on Highway 101 but we did not find it too noisy. The owners were helpful and there is a coffee room available all day.

Nice size room upstairs overlooking old town Bandon. Right on hi way 101 with slider open pretty noisy. Owner very nice and helpful. Gave us extra coffee. Coffee maker in room single cup serving and had 2 packets in room. Had to pay for ice. Kind of unusual but only a quarter and room had a nice size fridge and micro.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms have views of Old Town and sunset

Hubby and I stayed here for our 24 year anniversary.. Lynne was amazing... sweet as pie... Our room was upstairs big and clean, smelled clean.. bed was comfy... everything was great... Lynne gave us some extra coffee for our room because I'm a coffee hog... We meet her son(sweet as pie too) and their 2 dogs Smokey and Bandit(awesome furbabies) such a nice family...the dogs filled the void for us missing our dogs while in Bandon...The next morning we meet their duck(I forgot it's name) but I did take some pictures of him/her in the pond... cute as can be... Lynne, I did come in the office to check out and say thank you and good bye but no one was in and I couldn't find paper to leave you a note, but thank you for everything you made our stay great!!!!!

Don't get to Bandon as often as I'd like, but always go to Bandon Inn and have never been disappointed. Rooms are clean and motel conveniently located. Owner is very informative and answered all our questions, plus offered a few places we hadn't thought of. Enjoyed Smoky, Bandit and Hayward. (2 great dogs and a funny little duck)

Located at the entrance of Old Town Bandon, the Driftwood Motel is a nicely upgraded older motel. We were greeted by the owner who was very pleasant and accommodating.The room was spotless and smelled clean. The queen-size bed was comfortable. The toilet and shower room was separate from the sink and vanity area. The vanity was large, which was a big plus as my wife and I bring just about everything but the kitchen sink. The tub and shower shined as if it had just been installed. Wi-Fi is available but we didn't use it. A continental breakfast was available with various beverages, fresh bread, muffins, bagels, yogurt, and then some. Not at all a bad showing. The winter rate was very reasonable. There are restaurants next door and directly across the street. For a pleasant and comfortable stay, this is certainly a motel to remember!
