Decent hotel on beach

As beach hotels go this one is okay. They have a decent pool with great water slide and do offer activities and movies. The hotel was so-so for cleanliness. Our room was clean, but the property was not. There was a diaper shoved up in the stairs leading out to the beach the whole trip including other paper/beer can waste. There is a decent gym, kids arcade and they did offer a free movie rental upon check in. The price was average.

Our room had a kitchenette that was stocked with plates, utensils etc, a range and full fridge and microwave. Bring some items to cook, but if that's not your thing the food at the hotel wasn't too bad on price.

Overall good stay, bad room

The room I stayed in had its faults, the door was hard to open and close, the main deadbolt didn't work, the chain lock was broken, the fan in the bathroom was broken and cover was hanging down, the bathroom door was tough to open and close and there was some sort of equipment left in the room that I'm not sure what it was. The rest of the hotel was wonderful, with easy beach access, pool access and plenty for the little ones to do.

Fun girls getaway

I took my daughter here on one last vacation before she goes off for college. The location was great,staff was friendly. I wish the rooms would have been updated and a little more roomy. Only disappointment would be they did not offer free breakfast or good prices for family meals. I would stay again if I got another vacation package that included hotel, airfare and car.

Weekend getaway

Love condos but was unable to get one for just a weekend getaway. This hotel is older but severed our purpose just fine. Located directly on the beach and close to restaurants. Rooms were small but clean. Weather was great. Staff was helpful and friendly. Free beach chairs were a wonderful addition. The tiki bar was convenient for lunch and drinks. Two pools for those who enjoy swimming when the beach has red flags. We had a great time at this hotel.

The view was breathtaking. The room needs to be updated. Other than that I would defiantly stay here again.

Average at best

Hotel is in a nice location, but definitely shows it age. The room is small and run down. The room is clean, but has a used feel and look. Looks like there are some newer hotels going up in the area. The staff was friendly, but this doesn't make up for the condition of the hotel.

Very relaxing

Great service and very accommodating. We asked for a different room as we were first put in a room over looking the kids swimming pool. The kids were having an awesome time but we would rather have a quieter room. Our request was granted and we were moved to a lovely room overlooking a more quiet pool and the beautiful gulf. We enjoyed walking out to the beach and sitting in the chaise lounge chairs under our sun umbrellas. Also close to many wonderful eating places! Very enjoyable!

Absolutely worth the short drive to go to AJs in Destin for their daily happy hour which included live music everyday starting at 4:30. Great music, good drinks, awesome food and a fun way to meet the locals and other vacationers!
