“Budget Friendly Accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Driftwood Inn is an affordable getaway for families of any size. If you don't mind cozy accommodations this place would work well for you.

My family of 5 have stayed in their suites and cabins during the summer months and have enjoyed our stay every time. The rooms can be quite cozy for a family our size but we were hardly indoors so we didn't mind. The decor and furniture are outdated and the rooms have an old rustic smell. I did appreciate the seperate bedrooms! The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare simple meals including a small microwave and coffee maker.

The great thing about this place is that they have a nice outdoor pool and a wonderful picnic area with bbq grills and picnic tables. There is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the sunset and also have a bonfire just literally across the street. The owners are very very nice and are always going the extra mile to make sure their guests have everything they need to enjoy their stay. Because of their generosity and kindness Driftwood Inn will always be considered for one of our many mini family getaways.

Room Tip: I prefer staying in one of their cabins.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in room 12 in august of 2012. If you go into this "motel" with high expectations you will definatly be dissapointed. Don't get me wrong its not bad but its also not good. The rooms are large but old, everything in it is old and dated including a bit of a musty smell. The room is clean enough. The location is at the end of Birch Bay strip so its a long walk but doable. This motel is the cheapest one in Birch Bay. If you go in with the mind frame that you are renting a cabin more on the rustic side you won't be disapointed. It does have a nice outdoor pool as well. If you are looking for a cheep place to stay its a decent value.
