I can't decide whether to give the Driftwood a three or a four rating. Rogers City is a small town without any grand tourist attraction so I think I will grade the Driftwood slightly on the curve and give it a 4. Anyway, the motel's staff is pleasant. The rooms are clean and more than adequate, but not exactly overly... More

I've been staying at this motel off and on since they built it many years ago. Easy check in, clean rooms, pool, and a stones throw from a bike walking path, with on walking distance off the down town area. One of the most beautiful sun up's on Lake Huron. I highly recommend this motel summer or winter.

We had the best time at the Driftwood. Best hotel view we have ever had! All rooms overlook the beautiful bright teal blue Lake Huron. Walk to the beach, play in the waves and have fun! All employees were super nice, and we especially enjoyed the beautiful indoor pool and hot tub. Rooms are a little older but super clean!... More

My Husband and I and two children under three stayed here while visiting my Uncle. The motel is in a great location, 2 minutes from town and right on the lake(balcony view). It was very warm while we visited and the A/C and lake were perfect relief. We even got to view the meteor shower during our stay. We had... More

Most years I take a driving trip (two or three days) through northern Michigan and I always try to stay at the Driftwood Motel. I just stay here one night and very much enjoy the view of Lake Huron from my room. There is a pool and spa here (I am told) which I have never used. I like to... More

Needed a place to stay with our 2 dogs. Rooms have view of Lake Huron and it is in walking distance through some brush and across a small, paved pathway - not bad at all. Restaurants in the area close early, couldn't find food after 8pm. Bathroom is very small, like coat closet small. Lots of cracks in the walls... More

This location was perfect and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Nice pool and spa area. Beautiful view, clean room. we were at the end by the pool and the doors were open so it was a little loud but once the doors were closed you didn't know they were there.
