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...

We stayed at the Driftwood Inn the room was very clean and cute, the people were very friendly, however the mattress in room 1 was horrible, it sounded like we were sleeping on bubble wrap.. it was very uncomfortable and the pillows were flat. The bathroom was so small you couldn't even open the door without hitting the toilet. You...

We just spent a couple nights at this Inn in Mexico Beach. When they say "on the beach", they really mean on the beach! We stayed in the "quad" house and once you step out of the back door, it's only about 50 steps to beach heaven! For those looking for a destination that's the antithesis of the Las Vegas...

Great place although not a B and B now. Great prices. Friendly owners. Great dog! Very reasonable. I recommend it. Not like a big hotel. I don't know what else to put in here so Roll Tide. If you want luxury, it is not here but if you want a nice place to stay, do.

We got a cottage here for a week to enjoy this forgotten coast. LOVED every minute of it. Dog friendly too. In the office is an official greeting team, Jojo the bird is beautiful, as well as Woody the great Dane. Cottages have everything one would need to be comfortable. Everyone on staff has been very friendly and helpful. Hope...
