I arrived here late on a Friday night, late check in was not an issue. The staff was pleasant in bar, motel& restaurant. Rooms were clean& they are definietily pet friendly. Small rooms but great value especially for a quick stay. In the restaurant the waitress I had (Roxanne) was wonderful& the next week when I stopped in again she remembered my daughter from previous week. Great service:-)

My husband I stayed at the Driftwood Hotel last week. We were on our motorcycle, so were looking for a place that had restaurants and bars close so we could walk. The hotel was very clean. There is an excellent bar and restaurant on site. There is a small park across the street with a nice clean beach area. A very nice choice for our stay in the U.P.

When my husband and I are heading to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan for our annual camping trip, we usually stop in St. Ignace for the night before continuing on. When we do, we usually stay at the Driftwood. It's so convenient to be able to park the car and then have dinner and drinks at the attached sports bar and just walk on back to our room. During our most recent stay, I ordered the fish taco (yum!) and my husband ordered an old favorite - the mushroom swiss burger (on the menu it's called the Ohio State burger, but I hate to say that out loud). The rooms are clean and the price is not too bad. Nothing fancy, but reliable.

Not by any means a luxury motel/hotel, however for a basic clean well maintained motel, this is the one. Rooms are older smaller in size, however very clean with direct access to your car in front of each room as well as a great reasonable quality restaurant on site and separate sports bar. Is located directly across from two of the three ferry lines that run to Mackinac Island. The staff is very warm and helpful. They offer a $3 discount on each ferry ticket at the front desk just for the asking. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 122 and 123 are probably the best rooms, both have two beds for up to four people.

When my wife called for reservations we reserved a room with 2 double beds, when we checked in we had 1 double bed. The room smelled very musty with an overbearing odor of Fabreze! The window blinds would not close, had to turn each one by hand. I realize this was a holiday weekend, but, should have been better prepared. Had someone from an ajoining home blocking part of the driveway all weekend. All in all less than pleasant stay.
