Will Return Time and Again.
All of the staff we encountered were friendly. The property is very well maintained. Beats the tar out of the high rise internment buildings all around. And our balcony view was delightful.

Scenic Jewel with personal touches.
My family and I had a wonderful time at your location. We liked it so well that we intend to come back here pretty soon. I've already send pictures off to other family members and they will probably join me on my next visit. We really love the way you keep up your grounds and we just like to say keep up the good work.

perfect for families with small children
My husband and I just took a family vacation with my one and four year olds. This place was FANTASTIC! The location was perfect. our room was a two minute walk to the beach. the hotel grounds we're perfect for our little ones, they could run around the sundeck and play in the kiddie spray park. the kiddie pool was perfect because it is zero entry and only 3 feet deep. it was heated and perfect for us! the beach was right there and perfect for short trips to play in the sand between naps and potty breaks. although the driftwood hotel was smaller than several others around us and a bit outdated it was for sure the best place for our family being that we have two little ones. the only downfall was our room had a tile floor that was dangerous because of how slippery it was once it was got wet and with frequent trips to and fro the pools and beach the floor did get wet at times. the that being said the room was clean and the tile floor definitely attributed to the overall cleanliness of the room.

Excellent and Extremely Clean!!
We booked this last minute and wasn’t sure what to expect because the pictures show the old style comforters but let me tell you, this place is SO clean and the next morning we saw housekeeping taking the comforters to be washed. You could walk barefoot and not get sand on your feet, so unusual for a beach hotel. There are 2 pools and a hot tub that looked very nice but we didn’t have time to use them. The sitting areas outside were great. I enjoyed sitting in the rocker watching the waves roll in. Most rooms looked to have a front and back door and at the back door there is a picnic table and chairs to enjoy being outside and the view. There was a kitchenette in our room with cups, toaster, coffee maker, silverware, etc with dish soap and a sponge. We would definitely go there again. The walkway to the beach was great and not too long, which would be great if traveling with an older person. Upon check in, the guys were very friendly and even walked us to our room to make sure we found it ok (it was at the very end of the building away from the main one). My only complaint was they recommended a restaurant (Diego’s) that was closed and being remodeled. We walked down there only to find that out. I would just recommend they be a bit more informed and on the off season, call ahead as we found a lot of places were closed for the season.

Amazing place to stay!
The hotel room was very clean and well accommodated! Microwave, toaster, mini fridge/freezer, small bar area to eat at and dresser with extra pillows and blanket. Common areas are very nice. Patio with covered areas, rockers, outdoor kitchen, and lounge chairs. Very close to Walmart and Pier Park! The only downside I had was my room did not have a beach view as described, but it was right by the patio which had amazing beach views! I will definitely stay here again.

Great motel
Every one was friendly. For an older motel the room was nice and clean. It had some updated features. I loved the daily free popcorn and watermelon. Def a great escape from monster hotels where you feel like an ant
