I would never stay at this location ever again even if it were only 10$ a night. Overpriced. The bed was awful. Everything there looked like they bought at a yard sale , old and dirty. Our stove still had, what looked like, spaghetti meat still on the stove from the previous guests. The floors felt so dirty that I...

This is a review of the hotel rooms not the cottages. We were traveling with our 19 year old daughter so we needed 2 beds and were told the cottages wouldn't work. Here are the good things about this hotel: 1. Location-the walk to the beach is super short. 2. Beautiful grounds- there are a ton of places to sit...

The rooms are simple, with small kitchenette. Great staff. We enjoyed the simplicity and beauty of this Inn. If you want peacefulness and relaxation, this is a great place. There is No pool or Jacuzzi, but, who wants that? The Gulf of Mexico is steps away, and the water is refreshing and warm this time of year.

We stayed at the Driftwood after a failed tenting trip at Indian Pass Campground (think bugs and rain). We had our dog with us and they were the only pet friendly hotel in the area with availability. If I'm not mistaken Driftwood has comparable prices to the El Governor and it's certainly a lot nicer in that the rooms have...

My husband and I stumbled across the Driftwood Inn 18 years ago. We were headed to Destin for a weekend stay and the red tin roof of the Driftwood caught our eye. We decided to stop and check it out. We're so glad we did. We feel in love with the place instantly. We were looking for a quite, relaxing...

Our visit to The Driftwood in Mexico Beach, FL was delightful! If you want a great relaxing beach experience in a unique setting, this could be exactly what you're looking for. The beautiful beach is literally steps from your room. The grounds are so interesting with beautiful palms and well tended gardens. There are numerous places to sit on the...

Disappointed, I was hoping for so much more. The location is fabulous. Right on the beautiful white sand Mexico beach. Idyllic setting but so disappointing inside. Room 2 ground floor is clean but so very tired and musty. The mattress is ancient, creaky and very uncomfortable. The bathroom is also clean but very tiny. No tub little claustrophobic and old...

A wonderful place to unwind and relax. We stayed in the cottages and had a wonderful view of the beach along with the landscaping and the 24 purple Martin houses that were swarming with activity. If you are looking for a place to relax, this is it. Mexico Beach is not touristy and commercialized as it is separated from Panama...

I'm leaving a rating of 2 because it is truly a lovely charming quaint inn but unfortunately housekeeping stole an expensive outfit that I mistakenly left in the closet. We were taking a road trip through Florida and stayed 1 night at Driftwood Inn with my family. We fell in love with the location and the setting and quickly agreed...
