We stayed here for two nights during May. The motel provides everything and more for your stay. The rooms are clean tidy and well furnished. Some great little additions like the iced tankards in the freezer, the beach equipment you can borrow (I could go on ) make this place somewhere to return to time and time again! Patty the... More

Small motel that couldn't be more conveniently located. Less than 2 blocks to beautiful beaches, great restaurants and shopping. Each room is set up as an efficiency with comfortable beds, full size refrigerator, stove, microwave and toaster oven. There is wall mounted flat screen TVs, WiFi, and air conditioning. Patty is the owner extraordinaire. The place is immaculate and she... More

Great room, clean, friendly, service provided by Patty was fantastic! Easy access to beach, restaurants and amenities. Free trolley on the island and bus service to Bradenton for ball games. We will be back!

We wanted to have a 5-day base of operations to scout out a 2017 longer-term rental. We were lucky enough to find a room at the Driftwood - our two kids and us. From the time we met Patty - the owner from New Jersey - she made our stay remarkable. It's a great location, a short walk to the... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Driftwood Motel. The motel is well placed for the beach and local bars/restaurants. It is clean and the rooms are very well equipped. Patty is on hand with advice and help if and when needed. The pool is a great end to a day on the beach. A great place to... More

What a delightful little gem we found the Driftwood Motel to be, located on Anna Maria Island in Holmes Beach, Florida. Only 6 units to the entire place, we found it absolutely charming and non-commercialized. Patty (the proprietor -- who calls New Jersey "home") sounds tough over the phone but has a heart of gold. She has thought of everything... More

We have recently returned from an amazing holiday in Florida. We chose to return to the area to stay at The Driftwood Motel (our third stay here.) Patty the owner and her family are lovely people and are very welcoming, they are always happy to help and give recommendations of places to visit and dine in. The accommodation is spacious,...

Great place to visit and really close to everything. Just one short block to the beach and chairs are provided. Would definitely recommend and also go back to this quiet and wonderful place. You can't go wrong with a stay in this place.
