Excellent condition for a building built in 1957. Recently renovated. Motel and grounds were very clean, staff was very friendly and easy to deal with. We will stay again. I recommend the cabana rooms, they have a great view!

This was the 3rd time for us staying here, and every time it's consistently a great experience. This is not one of the Mega hotels or chains, this is a more laid back and comfortable experience. The hotel staff make you feel like your family and will go out of their way to make sure your experience is great. Another...

Motel is right on the beach, within walking distance of Pier Park, and close to Publix grocery store. Rooms are clean and cozy. Internet is spotty. Staff is really nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

The Driftwood Lodge is a partner property with the Osprey Hotel (adjacent). In fact, they use the same office (at the Osprey) and guests can use the amenities of either property.

We spent Saturday night there and it was just a perfect weekend. The three pools, hot tub, the large sitting areas and location made it so enjoyable. Clean, safe and very family friendly.
