The staff were very pleasant and courteous. Very welcoming. Our room was perfect! The bed was very comfortable and the room was exactly what we expected. The grounds were clean, well kept, the beach area was very relaxing. Enjoyed our morning coffee out in the chairs on the covered porch! This is a wonderful place to stay! We’ll see you again!

Really Loved the beach area and ability to swim/fish/snorkel. Very quiet and secluded. Good location. Loved the smallness of the motel- not tons of people, very quaint. Rooms were not clean though. I think they just sweep each time. Our feet were filthy so had to wear socks/shoes inside. (And socks got filthy. ) You could also tell based on the amount of dirt on the baseboard edges. It had been there awhile. The rooms were updated, but very much a “surface” update- new furnishings, etc. The windows were inoperable.(which made it hard- there was no bathroom vent and you couldn’t easily open the window so it got crazy hot inside when showering. ) The door to the room was almost impossible to open/shut because the door handle hole was cut too close to the door edge so to open or close the door you crammed your hand every time. We learned to only open it from the back side and time it so you wouldn’t get hurt. The rooms had very little light and minimal natural light so very gloomy. One of the beds was elevated for some reason at the foot side so had to sleep with pillows at the foot of the bed and feet towards the head. For towels, you put your dirty towels in a plastic bin and leave it outside your room and they leave fresh new ones in the same bin outside your door. I’m hoping they wash the bin before putting new ones in, but based on the floors I’m guessing not? It’s too bad, most are easy fixes... could be a great little place if the inside matched the outside.

The Drift Hotel was a great find and the perfect place to stay. The property was small, clean, and looked newly renovated. The property offered several fun amenities including a fire pit, a small beach, and a beautiful pier. Being a small hotel, the place was quiet even when fully booked.

It has recently been painted and a few upgrades. Our toilet in our updated room did not flush properly. The room next to us had parties every night even though there was a noise ordnance starting at 9 pm. It was priced decently and the beach was very crowded with guests. It was overall a decent stay but the likelihood of staying here again would be small

I chose this hotel based on a 4.4 rating on Travelocity versus a 3.9 for the Marriott which was within walking distance of the dive shop where we were diving. I am not sure what this Marriott looks like inside but its proximity to the dive shop and restaurants is enough for me to overlook the 0.5 difference in rating. I also wonder how the Drift received a 4.4 since it was clean and the staff was friendly but the rooms are spartan without any real clothing storage space and there are no restaurants or stores within walking distance.

nice hotel, beautiful view and clean water to swim, snorkle or kayac. first night we did not get the room we were supposed to get (junior suite with a big bed and a sofa) and get a room with 2 small beds we never asked for, and our bed was too small and not confortable. but the second night we got our junior suite and it was great. they alos had some live music by the dock that was very nice.

They double booked the room and i had to find another location. Looking back it was probably a good thing because the place was not much to look at.
