Rogers City doesn't really have a lot to offer in ways of lodging but this seemed like the best choice and we weren't disappointed. The room had a great view of Lake Huron with a little deck. Only two bath towels, four would have been better, but I didn't call to ask for me. We made do. We didn't do...

Not too many choices in Rogers City. Stayed here Labor Day weekend and then drove up to do the Mackinaw Bridge walk. Much cheaper then motels around the Bridge. It is a older establishment. Rooms are okay, nothing fancy. Bathrooms were clean with the sink out in the main room. Very small balcony. View of Lake Huron is gorgeous. A...

Decent hotel. Very nice blonde lady was the only staff we saw. She was helpful &patient with us. Everything is quite old&needs updating. Creaks & makes noises at every turn. One sound woke us up at 3 am it was so loud. But it does have fridges & microwaves &a great view which is more than you can say for...

The second floor queen-bed room with a great view of Lake Huron was surprisingly clean. The decor is an eclectic mix of nautical and 80's kitsch, but the TV had good channel selections and the Wi-fi was strong. The spacious room had a small micro-wave stacked on top of a mini-fridge, plopped on the desk. Odd. Bring your own toiletries,...

We arrived after dark, and when we got to the room we could hear the waves on the lake, then the moon came up and what a wonderful nighttime view, only to be out done by one of the nicest sun raises I have ever seen. The staff were great the room and beds were great, a wonderful end to...

Chose this hotel based on previous positive TripAdvisor reviews and was not disappointed. The rooms were clean and every room has a balcony view of Lake Huron with the second floor rooms commanding the best view, of course. We were warmly greeted at checkin and we were reminded of the free coffee availability and free breakfasts. WiFi is free and...

We arrived later in the evening and although staff isn't 24/7, when they knew we would be late they left out a key for us. Room was clean enough, smelled a little stale as though smokers had used it at some point. Lake Huron is practically on the door step, so that was a treat! We woul stay there again...

This motel was a pleasure. The view of Lake Huron can't be beat! The room was spacious enough and had the amenities we needed for our stay. The only main issue we experienced was that they ran out of hot water for the showers twice, however, the motel was booked to capacity for that weekend too. The continental breakfast is...

The location overlooking Lake Huron and the Rogers City non-motorized trail is hard to beat. An indoor pool, wifi, and continental breakfast are all nice amenities. While just off the main highway and a building design that is a tad dated, the Driftwood Motel is a pleasant and relaxing place to stay if you are traveling to Rogers City along...
