Nothing special. Just an expensive hotel with a view of the beach.

Our room smelled. Cleanliness wasn't all that great. But it didn't stop us from enjoying our vacation. We had a nice beach view. I'm still not sure if it was worth it. The room was super super tiny. Same with the bathroom. There was a short narrow hallway into the bedroom. There was a small fridge and sink in the hallway. Be warned. There is a $160 cleaning fee when you leave. What really got me is a heading they wrote in their guest packet that said "Throw away your trash and put the dishes in the sink and fill it up with water." Please tell me what the $160 cleaning fee is for? Overall, I give this place a 2 star. Maybe 1 but since I had a good time in Destin, I'll be nice. Forgot to add, do not expect to BBQ there. The grilling area was a little lame. We were the only people there. They had what looks like a small pond but it was empty and a sight for sore eyes. This is just a hotel to stay with a nice view. Don't expect anything else. Also the booking process was a pain in the butt. They canceled my reservation twice. Had to go through a headache and finally got the room with a 3rd try.

great family getaway

Because of Tropical Storm Lee we had to spend more time than usual in our Condo but it was great we had free movie rental and enough room that we weren't cramped. Plan to return next year. The only down side was after arriving at Surfside I had to pay an additional $142.00 for cleaning and other fees and I wasn't expecting it. Otherwise we had a great time.

Nice! Nice! Nice!

The hotel suite was very nice and clean. The view was breath-taking. The layout of the room was awesome, you could lay on the bed and see the ocean through the wide windows. The balcony was very big. There was a table out on the balcony. But I was disappointed that we did not have a table in the room. There was only table lamps for light. The room needed more light. I loved the way we could walked across the bridge to the beach. We had complementary beach chairs and beach service. :) The restaurant was very good and reasonable. The view in the restaurant was awesome too. The staff was very friendly. We stayed in a one bedroom, one bath hotel suite. I was surprised with a clean-up fee when I checked in. The website did not mention it. (Unless I missed it, somewhere in the fine print.) The clean-up fee was mentioned on other condos.

Nice hotel, bad "cleaning" fee

The Surfside Beach Resort is a nice hotel with a friendly staff. At check-in time I was surprised to find that I had to pay a $72 "cleaning" fee on top of the $152 I had already paid in advance for the room. Really? I'm staying one night. I'm not a teenage spring-breaker. Unfortunately, there would be no refund on a cancellation so I went ahead and paid the fee but thought I would pass along a warning to others. I expected to pay a higher rate due to the timing of my stay, but this hotel was definitely not worth $225 a night.

worst hotel ever

i just wanted to say its the worst time ever that i made a reservation through this website, as when i got there, they told me that i dont have a reservation in a first place, and then they made me pay 70$ check-in fee, and the room wasn't remotely close to what it is in the picture or as i ordered, so i won't make a reservation ever again through this website and to that place specifically..

Very clean, very pretty. Would be difficult to cook much in the kitchen so plan on eating out. Front desk help was outstanding.

Clean Crisp and Courteous with a view

I loved the room and the view. The staff was extremely friendly. Outlets and Destin Commons and restaurants were convenient. Stairs to beach were almost impossible with a handicap but a convenient drive to a public beach with a ramp. I will stay here again.

Short beach vacation

We do very little traveling. Compared to hotels we have been to, the rooms were very nice - much more space to move around. The kitchen was very well equipped, but our use of it was minimal. It took a bit of getting used to providing your own toilet paper and washing the towels, but it was nice having the washer and dryer. The beach chairs and umbrella were a real plus.
