“Paper thin walls!”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

We chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Deer Lake airport (Deer Lake Holiday inn not open when we made the booking) and the shortness of our stay at the place (less than 12 hrs). Even though the small bathroom seem to have been recently renovated, carpet in the room looked worn and the walls were paper thin. We had an early morning flight to catch and had a hard time sleeping with the noise of doors slamming and people talking. Not recommended.

This is a very average hotel, with no real things to distinguish it good or bad. One complaint I have is a hotel should not advertise it has wireless internet if it cannot provide good service. We had a lot of trouble connecting and maintaining connection, and the desk clerk told us lots of people just come down to the lobby to use their laptops becasue of poor service in the rooms.

The staff was very welcoming and eager to help which was great, they printed me directions and weather information. The room however was average at best. While technically clean-ish it had an odd odor and was just very dingy. The beds are hard as rocks and mine had a nice tilt to one side. This is definitely a "don't remove your socks" kind of place.

the inn is well located. It's only a few minutes from the airport and within walking distance of most of Deer Lake's restaurants and a couple of grocery stores. My room (one double bed) was quite small, but it was clean and modern and the wireless internet worked flawlessly. Service was very friendly and helpful. It had the feel of a local establishment, which I like. I would definitely stay here again on a visit to Deer Lake.

We stayed in the two bedroom suite at the Driftwood Inn. Very nice unit. Large kitchen, fully equipped. Large jacuzzi tub with seperate shower stall. A great spot to stay while in Deer Lake. Barbecue, full size fridge, dishwasher, stove, etc. Good for long term stays. Staff friendly and helful. Barbecue as well and drive up unit. Very clean and comfortable.

I arrived after 2:00am on a Saturday night/Sunday morning. The concierge was a very nice woman who checked me in quickly and helped my with my bag up one flight of stairs. The room was fine, facing out the front of the hotel but the view was only across the street (as I found out the next day). Comfy room, good sleep, great shower the next day. Recommended for late arrivals into Deer Lake.
