This is a great value and location with very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were a bit worn, but spacious and very clean, with a fully stocked kitchen. And as a woman traveling alone, I felt completely safe. I recommend.

Simple check in, clean room, I would stay there again.

Convenient location, close to restaurants and beach

Came to DE to purchase a home. The Driftwood is conveniently located to our desired living area and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I hoghly recommend staying here.

The room itself is quaint and cozy with minimal decor that compliments the furniture. The bed and couch weren't something I'd buy for myself, but comfortable enough for our short visit. The real problems came when we realized that the staff were simply not motivated enough to actually CLEAN properly. Ants were a consistent sight for us during our visit, although in a very small amount (we killed about a dozen in a 3-day stay). We also found sizable garbage left behind by former guests when we were packing, underneath both the couch and bed. The dishes were mostly dirty before we even touched them, and the stove burners and toaster could use a good deep cleaning for crumbs, as whenever we used them the smoke detector began to go off from the vague smell of burning. The hot water also seemed to run out very quickly, within 5 minutes of a hot relaxing shower. Unfortunately this is my first negative experience at a hotel while travelling, and we wont be returning.

The place is perfect size for two people. Heat works nicely, it can be adjusted by the guest, so one can make a cozy little house. Having a full kitchen adds value to this place, full size refrigerator (lovely) plenty of room for keeping food,snacks and drinks. Very convenient location, everything is close by, groceries stores, gas stations, restaurants and beaches. Wi-fi is very fast One thing I would recommend. I have no complains about the staff but if having any issues with this place talk to directly to the owners. I met Mr.Lou and he is a very fine person, welcoming, easy to talk to.
