First of all Jonathan was extremely helpful with any questions or concerns we might have had(helped my wife with the shower the first day). I gave it a 3 only because it... More

TV remote missing. Microwave not working. Coffee maker not working. No water pressure. Room smelled horrible. Long path (scary at night) to the beach... not close to the beach as they make it seem. You can't even see the beach from the hotel. Don't let them fool you !! We were extremely disappointed !! If I had not brought my... More

URGENT!! An absolute MUST read if you are planning on booking Scenic Gulf Inn & Suites, for even one night!! Upon arrival of checking into a reservation made through Expedia for July 20th, 2014, there was an unofficial ‘note’ scribbled on some paper at the front desk stating “Out of the office, be back soon”. When the front desk person... More

Where do I begin? The room was in serious disrepair. The mattresses in my room were probably over 10-12 years okx and had virtually no center springs left. I did not gat any sleep as it was like trying to sleep while balancing on a mountainside. I'm so sorry that I had to put my family through that hotel stay.... More

My stay was July 18-20. Although I read the reviews before my trip, I figured it was just a "mad customers" that may have blew a situation out of control, got mad and wrote a review...personally I didn't think a hotel so close to the beach in a popular tourist area could be so horrible, so I went ahead &...

Our hotel room was DIRTY! Not just a little dirty, but unacceptably dirty. I agree with reviewers that say there are people sitting around and ..... I'm not sure what the are doing, but it's nothing constructive. I think they work there. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if this hotel gets rented hourly. You can only go uphill from... More

With the exception of the black mold on the ceiling and the messed up door to the balcony it was ok and the lamp that looked like some one used gorilla glue to fix the staff was very nice and helpful too.

We obviously had a better stay than others. We are use to what you get with a 1 or 2 star motel and we've stayed at 4 star. It has a board walk that connects to the beach which is about 250 yards long but a nice walk. Beach location was much less crowded than Destin beaches. Room was quite... More

This was the worst hotel experience of my life. Let's begin with people sitting out in front of the rooms with 40's in lawn chairs, etc. the security latch in the room had been destroyed as if someone had forced themselves into the room at some point. There was mold and mildew EVERYWHERE! The carpet looked as it had never... More
