Awesome place. Very clean!

Had a great time everything was great including service pool entertainment and food would definitely go back

Everyone at the front desk was so sweet. The room was clean. Everything was sanitized. And the pool area was great. We will be back.

Wonderful staff. Thanks for making our stay great. :-)

Our stay was fantastic! The staff was super efficient and friendly. The rooms were very clean and beds were very comfy. The lazy river style pool was wonderful and the beach was literally a few yards from the pool and dock. I would definitely recommend this facility and will make plans to return!

Kid friendly with all the extras. Loved the movie nights at the pool. The views were amazing and the location was excellent.

Do not arrive early hoping for an accommodating staff for an early checkin. Check in is at 4pm and they will not give you a room until then. The property was very nice. The pool was heated and not crowded even during Spring Break. The beach is right at your footsteps. The restaurant had great food and kids under 12 eat free. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Hotel is located within a 5 min drive to Destin.

My children booked us for a surprise one night staycation at the Holiday Inn as we're local to this area- to get us out of the house for an evening and near the beach. The hotel was so wonderful and we enjoyed ourselves so much that we decided to add on and stay another night. We will definitely return here for future getaway weekends free of stress!! The staff was very friendly, professional, and accomodating. It was a little too cold to swim outside, but the indoor heated pool was a bonus!!

The lobby is spacious and welcoming with lots of windows that look out onto the pool and the beach. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately, some front desk staff were a bit distracted and not as attentive as they might have been. When we arrived, the person at the front desk was on the phone and did not look up or acknowledge us in any way until she finished with her lengthy call. We soon realized we did not have an ocean-view room but with another $20.00 per night (this in spite of the hotel being at 30-35% occupancy during out stay) we were given an ocean view. Overall, most of the staff made us feel welcome and even helped locate scotch tape so we could finish wrapping gifts for our grandchildren - much appreciated! A suggestion - perhaps a little refresher for staff on responding to guest questions. We had called ahead to ask if the hotel had an airport shuttle and were told "no" which is correct, but it would have been more helpful to be told what options were available (shuttles from the airport, etc.).

I stayed two nights for a professional meeting. The staff members were all pleasant and welcoming. On my second night, a huge rainstorm made it hard to see as I was driving back to the hotel. I mistakenly drove my rental car onto the building site next door and got stuck in a sand dune. ( Really!) I got out of the car and hiked to the hotel in the pouring rain and asked for their advice. They said "Eddie" would know what to do, and he did. " Eddie", a man about my age ( meaning not young) walked with me out to the sand dune, assessed the situation , and pushed the car out of the sand, all the while acted like these kinds of things happen all the time. I was, and am, hugely grateful. Very very nice place. Thank you "Eddie".

It's very new so the property is in perfect condition, but it's clean, simple and cheerful decor is what I like te most. Just a happy place with happy staff. Oh, and the beach, pool, rooms and everything else was excellent!
