Old Pier Motel is a great place to stay! Has everything you need and very close to the water! The property owner Mrs Kathi is one of the best and most personable people we've ever met! Great value for the money. Can't wait to go back. There's even umbrellas, chairs and wave boards you can use in case you forgot... More

We are used to a beach front condo but couldn't get it for te full length of our stay. I thought I would be disappointed but it is super close to the beach. Really just enough distance to shake some of the sand off. It is nice that she shares her beach toys. I would stay there again.

We loved our stay at the Old Pier Motel. Ms.Kathi is Amazing. We actually called her Gram'. The motel is very clean. She definitely takes pride in being a business owner. Hospitality was Great!!! We will definitely stay here when we come back. You don't rent from someone like Ms.Kathi very often. :) THANKS GRAM' for making us feel at... More

Love this place. It is neat and tidy. Kathy is a hoot. She is very attentive to guest needs. The motel is walking distance to the beach. I don't believe there is a better deal . I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. I will be back.

My husband, son and myself stayed in unit #4 for 9 nights in December, 2014. We had a nice time in Destin and Kathi was very hospitable. The room was clean and just what we needed. The motel is tucked in behind other condos and very private. It was only half a block from the beach.

Before my mom passed, this was our annual getaway for the two of us and my kiddo. No fancy amenities but has everything you need and the comforts of home. Mom loved it here. I love it here. Small, quiet, quaint and a 2 minute walk to the most gorgeous stretch of beach in the U.S. At the end of... More

We loved Mrs. Kathi! It was like staying at grandma's house. She was sweet and attentive. It is right on the beach and close to all attractions. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. Felt like a home away from home. It has a nice retro feel to it without being dated. It just felt like a community in... More

Only a few blocks from all the shopping and restaurants and a 1/2 block to the beach.The owner Kathy was funny and friendly.Constantly cracking jokes. I am glad that places like this are still around in the... More

Stayed here for 6 days at the beginning of July. This place isn't the Ritz Carlton but it is so worth the value. I got a great price from the owner Ms. Kathy. Kathy is very nice and so is the rest of her family who helps her operate the hotel. The room is extremely clean. Everything you need for... More
