I want to ask someone that how was his journey but the drive is too short to be considered as journey. What other word I can use instead of it?

Trip, usually.

Occasionally I've heard "short hop", but that generally refers to short airplane trips (which are no longer very short at all, thanks to the security lines).

You could ask

How was your trip?

However, if the person is simply arriving at your location from some other place, and drove to your location, you could also ask:

How was your drive?

Hope this helps.

An alternative answer could be a jaunt - Noun: A short excursion or journey for pleasure.

Usage - "The store is just a quick jaunt down the road."
