We got a cottage here for a week to enjoy this forgotten coast. LOVED every minute of it. Dog friendly too. In the office is an official greeting team, Jojo the bird is beautiful, as well as Woody the great Dane. Cottages have everything one would need to be comfortable. Everyone on staff has been very friendly and helpful. Hope...

I've been to the Driftwood many times, but our trip this summer was another great memory. If your looking for all of the state of the art amenities and 1000 things to do. Mexico Beach and the Driftwood Inn are not the place for you. But if you want a nice, clean room, amazingly relaxing atmosphere and the easiest possible...

Took 20 minutes to find someone to check us in. Bathroom was in need of repair. (Toilet ran off all night long. Water controls spewed water.) We spoke to the main office about the issues and they were quite rude even argued it was fine. It was never fixed. Found the owner to be very hostile as well. A guest...

This was our first visit to Driftwood in for me and my sister. We were unexpectedly surprised by the beautiful location, the Inn grounds and the room. We stayed on the beach, room #15. The view was spectacular! The room was clean and very roomy for 2 people. Very beachy and nicely decorated. It was nice to stock the fridge...

We just got back from our time there on Oct 14-16, 2016. It reminded me of my days as a kid living in Sarasota. Great beach, beautiful landscaping, simple and old rashioned room #3, with very friendly and laid back staff in a quite, small town. Just what we needed to get away from the pace of Atlanta.

We've been coming to Mexico Beach and the Driftwood Inn for 10 years and it's never a disappointment. You enter your room on the street side and open to the beach side with beautiful plants and garden areas on both sides with porch swings, seating areas where you can take a book or take in the view, fountains and other...

My husband and I were there the weekend of September 24th. Quick trip for some peace and quiet. Much more subdued atmosphere than Panama City Beach. The grounds of the Inn are absolutely lovely with lots of butterfly friendly plants, wind chimes, etc. The view of The Gulf Of Mexico from out upstairs balcony was beautiful. Staff very friendly.

We were driving to Saint George island and decided to get close, as our rental house would not be ready until the next day. We had our dog with us so were referred to the inn by another establishment. They had a 2 bedroom house available and as we were traveling with another couple....this was perfect. The house was open...
