    Not much!! The Lobby door was locked when I arrived at 7:14 pm. I had to beat on the door for minutes bvefore a man showed up. The drapes on the window were hanging askew/filthy. Ironing board but no iron.packets of condiments for coffee were so old they were dirty an hard as a rock. Plumbing in bathroom was broken and hardly worked. Bugs were crawling in the shower.Entrance door lock was hard to secure, door was loose and I didn't feel very safe. Looked like no one had vacuumed under the bed for a year!!

    See above. Seriously, I am not making this up or even stretching the truth. I almost left without staying, but the weather was bad and I had a 2hr+ trip , traveling alone. I,m 71 yrs old. I would never recommend anyone stay there....ever for free! I didn't expect the Waldorf for $64,but this was rediculous!!

    Lock on door was not secure. The 6 white towels were 6 different hades of white, All of the electric appliances were attached to one extension outlet. Not sure how safe that was. Shower curtain was moldy.

    The staff, were very friendly and wished to be accommodating. The rate, even with 11% tax, was much less than any other venue. Room included large TV, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer, microwave, and small fridge. Very quiet, with comfortable bed and clean, tho' antiseptic smelling sheets.

    Reason for low rating....FILTHY, including walls, ceiling, carpet, furniture, lights, telephone, bathroom--and smelling moldy, dirty, nasty, helped somewhat by turning on air-conditioning. Also, drain closure in tub had been removed, and bath/shower toggle in spigot, permanently GLUED in "shower" position, so that one could only take a shower, not a bath. Definitely would NEVER return, nor recommend, without major, total renovations, which I would have to actually see first, in these areas.

    Directly outside of my window was a broken down shopping cart, and other junk. The pool (Memorial Weekend!) was not functioning, no water in in.

    The room was filthy, and the sheets were stained. The dead bolt was broken and the shower was disgusting. The room smelled really badly and I was frightened to stay there.

    I came down to Maryland to do the Chesapeak Swim and this was the closest hotel I could get to the swim and I was still forty minutes away. The room was alright, needs to be updates and new carpet. The price was good, it did serve our needs for the one night.

    It's the only budget lodging in the area.

    Driftwood Inn is filthy and falling apart. The room reeked of cigarette smoke despite being designated as a non-smoking room. The carpet was dirty and sticky; the bedside table was sticky; the sheets were stained; the walls were covered in discolored patches; and there was a cotton swab left on the floor. There was a ragged hole punched in the bathroom door, and the shelf next to the sink was collapsing. Most ridiculous of all was the fact that the drapes weren't wide enough to cover the whole window, so there was no privacy in the room.

    There was nothing we liked about Driftwood Inn and glad we only booked 1 night. According to locals, this place is "Crack Corner" (relating to drugs). Room was poor and dirty, lacked security as door hinge was missing, pool was empty with a little green water, multiple cig butts outside the door and overall a dump. Photos attached. Suggest Booked.net take this property off their website as reflects poor quality control on inventory on their website.
