On a motorcycle trip, booked a single person room. Room was small, but clean. Place was sold out. Front desk people were very friendly. For what it cost compared to other hotels in the area, it was a steal. No breakfast included, but this property has a restaurant/bar attached. The food was very good and reasonably priced. The parking lot... More

This was a very comfortable place to stay while traveling. Clean and updated rooms with Wi-Fi available. Nice grassy area out front (probably was a pool at one time) with wooden chairs to sit in and watch people come and go from the ferry to the island. I would stay here again.

Wonderful location in St Ignace -- so glad I found it on the internet. Log cabin feel with wide covered porch in a one-level structure. Our queen bed room was huge. In addition to the room where the bed, table & chairs, TV, etc were, we also had a huge walk-in closet which was more than ample space to put... More

We have stayed at this facility before, and have had consistently pleasant stays. Not so this time. We had booked our reservation in advance and arrived after 5pm; all the rooms were occupied, save for ours. The area has been experiencing higher than normal temperatures, and we unfortunately had a room without a working air conditioner. I will say the... More

Driftwood Motel was fairly easy to find. It's directly across from the ferries, so very convenient when going to Mackinac Island! Driftwood is pet friendly. We brought our 2 dogs with us for the weekend. The room was nice and the price was great! Having the restaurant right across the parking lot was nice, too.

I wasn't expecting much when my husband booked this motel for our trip to Mackinac because of the price. Boy, was I wrong! This motel exceeded my expectations. It was very clean and extremely dog friendly. My dog even got a goody bag at the beginning of our stay, which included treats, a ball and info for the nearest veterinary... More

This is a real great bargain, restaurant, sports bar, and directly across from the ferry to the island. We spent two nights here and enjoyed really good meals and service at the Sports Bar. My suggestion would be to move the table and chairs outside the rooms (corner patio) to the grassy area. There are several rooms affected by late... More

First time I stayed and I will definitely be back. The room had a comfortable bed, nice little table and fridge. It was a spacious room probably could have used another piece of furniture. Very clean....Had a problem with TV getting stations but would not discourage from retuning. The price was phenomenal. ...Staff friendly. Would recommend.

The entire establishment is literally gleaming, it is so clean! We stayed in a "fancy" hotel the night before last, and the Driftwood blew them away! The service, the food and convenient location to great stuff to do made our trip amazing!
