i liked that it was close to the beach. i did not like the free breakfast....it was just cereal, toast, a few pieces of friut( apples, oranges...some were bad) coffee. thats it.

Toilet was loose. Drains drained slowly. Lock on door did not seem secure.

First off, I booked a room with TWO queen beds and when I went to check in they moved me to one of their sister hotels and not even comp me with the same room accommodations I originally booked. They didn’t call or notify me before hand and only offered a reason of “maintenance issues” for moving me. Let me add two other couples were moved also without notification before hand and the hotel we were moved to was rundown and also had men fighting in the parking lot with throwing beach chairs at each other, not a place I was going to stay at with my two children! DO NOT book this hotel, you will be highly disappointed. We did end up staying in Destin at the Henderson for the same price and their rooms were gorgeous along with the property! If you want a fabulous place to stay choose THE HENDERSON in Destin!!!!

I can't rate them. My trip was canceled Due to a hurricane

Was a mini vacation for my husband and myself! Price was right and room was sufficient for the time we were there! Enjoyed the gulf front balcony! Our room could have used a little TLC (broken floor tile and electrical short in plug) but was clean and comfortable! We would come back again when we are in the area!

The accommodations were nice and cozy and had all the amenities we needed.

The room was nice and the beds were comfortable. We checked in quickly, enjoyed our stay, and checked out quickly-zero trouble or hassle.

There was no bad experience. There was two bugs in the room but no big thing the staff was nice.

We will go back next year. Everything you need is close. We had a few problems with the bathroom and kitchen light. Call the front desk and someone's was right there to fix it.

We had a nice stay, hotel is located on the beach, rooms are big enough and clean. Bed was very comfortable. Stuff was friendly and polite. Downside - breakfast could be better. And paying way to much for beach umbrellas (what is not part of hotel but independent company ). Overall would recommend to my friends.

My husband and I decided to have a weekend away and go to work he beach . We chose this resort because of location and price . I will say we weren't expecting much with the room however we were pleasantly surprised. When we arrived we were greeted by a very nice check in clerk . The room had a full kitchen ( microwave, fridge/freezer , oven and stove ). The view was beautiful because it was right on the beach . It was in a great location close to all stores and pier park was only about a 5 min drive. The room size was perfect and we felt very comfortable. As a plus there was a breakfast every morning. The breakfast did not have a lot of options and was the same each day. ( bagels,muffins, cereal or oatmeal. All in all we had a great time at this resort and would go back .

The only suggestion I have is to do some work on the outside area. With a little effort the hotel could be outstanding. Maybe resurface the pool area. The small area between the hotel and beach stuck out as the most unattractive in the row of surrounding hotels. There was knocked down fencing and palm trees that have seen better days (no tops). There was absolutely no attention to the area. If that area was cleaned up it would make all the difference!! The room itself was VERY clean. The sink in the bathroom did not have any counter and made it a bit of a pain with four of us and our toiletries. The view was awesome and the staff could not have been nicer.

Great location. Great staff. Wonderful experience.

Mother/Daughter 2 day stay May 7 & 8 was perfect! We were there for the beach and relaxing. You are steps to the on site pool and beach. The pool isn't large, but a nice size to take a dip to rinse off, lots of chairs and towels. There are also beach chairs (rent $15 each/day) on site, includes umbrella. It was slow, so keep that in mind with rental price. 6th floor room was spacious, nice balcony and great view. Fridge, stove and kitchen stocked for 4. The bathroom was clean. Room service was in a rush, so just exchanged towels, no biggie. Check in and check out was smooth, no issues. We arrived early on check in day and were able to change on site and use the pool, thank you! Our room was also ready early, after a fully booked weekend, at 2:30pm. We had no issues with the elevator, would stay again.

Very friendly, helpful staff. Older hotel but had everything we needed. Allowed us to eat in as it had stove, burners, microwave, refrigerator. Good light in the kitchen. needs more light in the eating area. Would have liked a toaster. Good parking, safe with good lighting. Needs a suitcase stand. Air/heat/ cold worked well. Good shower. Did not take advantage of continental breakfast. Departed by 6:30. Does not open until 7:00. Too late for early risers. Check-in early as a room was ready. Desk was very accommodating, helped with Map Quest directions upon leaving. Had a great time with you

We did not expect much based on the prior posted comments. We were surprised to see that it had recently been renovated before our arrival. We stayed in mid Feb 2017 so not much beach traffic to contend with. The room was clean and the carpets had been replaced (lots of negative reviews before). Breakfast area was also renovated. It's a basic breakfast (muffins, cereals,oatmeal, ect...) but not bad for the price point. Don't expect a hot buffet style setup. Pros: Price, Good location, kitchenette in room. Cons: Rooms are a bit small

Very nice place to stay. Will probably come again and stay longer. Colleen and Janine were particularly helpful.

The view was really nice and staff was pleasant. However, the beds were very uncomfortable!!!! I stay in hotels weekly and this was not a favorite! There was also a lot of hair mixed in with our bathroom towels.

We sincerely apologize that the toilet was loose in the bathroom and that the drains did not seem to be working properly. We have alerted our maintenance staff and will be addressing this internally. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
