I usually do not write reviews, but this would do ANYONE reading this a diservice. This was the most HORRIBLE hotel I have been in. I was in destin looking for hotels to house some of my wedding guest in June. I suspected this place was was slightly below average, but I did not expect to see what I saw.... More

Ramada Limited Destin is a good place to stay on budget. Relatively quick access to the beach, lots of shops and fast food around. Since we were there off-season, they gave us a huge room on the 4th floor with a balcony and a better view. We were able to see a little bit of the ocean from the room... More

After reading reviews I was scared that I made a mistake by booking this motel. Room was larger than expected, had mini kitchen and mini living area. The walk way to the beach was very convenient. The sofa bed had minor holes in upholstery but didn't bother me cause I didn't intend on sleeping or sitting on it. The phone... More

We booked this hotel on the phone a month prior to our arrival. The price was great compared to other rates that you will find on the beachside. The best thing about this hotel was the friendly staff, easy beach access and free breakfast. Although this hotel is on the beachside...there is not an actual "beachview" from the balcony..or even...

After reading some bad reviews, I must admit that I was nervous about our stay. We were in town for a friend's wedding and were traveling on a budget. For as close to the beach as it was, I was very pleased with the price. As much as I would love to rent a house directly on the beach, as... More

Two months before I even left for Destin, Florida...I called the number for this hotel and I spoke with a man named Charlie. Over the phone, Charlie gave me what I would call the best customer service I've received from someone who wasn't even guaranteed that I would be *his* customer. I was looking for prices for a place close... More

The best part about my trip was the service I received from Charlie Little. His customer service was excellent. The room is no frills. It was clean and it had a shower. I wanted to be close to the beach without paying too much. This room was great for that. If you want to hang at the beach all day... More
