Stayed here only because pet friendly hotels are so scarce. Previous reviews pretty well warned of the lack of maintenance. Our AC unit worked but poured water onto our patio making sitting outside less than desirable. Too bad! View is wonderful of Harbor but who their feet soaking in moldy water? The mattresses were sagging and old. Bed Linens were... More

Guys will like this if staying over for fishing trips out of the harbor. Rooms nice, bathrooms tired. For the price this is a great stay. No problem staying here again. Not a place to take your "princess". Great walking the boardwalk along the harbor as it is very convenient to all the restaurants and bars.

From entering the hotel it was notes to be poorly maintained. The carpet and laminate flooring were water damaged and warped. Our room had I filled holes in the wall, pain stirrers acting as wall anchors in the bathroom, the shower plumbing would pull from the wall when adjusting the shower head and to top it off, housecleaning basically only...

We had theft of $3,000 of camera equipment from room. The room was supposed to be on security camera as it was close to front desk, the manager is has still not returned my call to fix this situation. Beware. Do not leave any belongings in room even if you are just stepping out for 10 minutes. Sad you can't... More

There is obviously a misunderstanding on how these events took place. In our records, you returned to your room from dinner around 7:00 pm. At 2:00 AM, you noticed your camera was missing. You stated that the camera equipment had not been touched, but the camera was missing. Our Night Auditor started to call the police so they could right... More

We stayed for the Memorial Day Weekend. Upon arrival and stepping out onto the 5th floor balcony, a dolphin jumped in the harbor! Although the hotel is dated and the bathroom is TINY, we enjoyed our stay. The staff were great. The view from the reception/dining area is nice. Not great were all the steps down to the pool deck...

We really enjoyed staying at this small hotel. We stayed on the 5th floor overlooking the harbor, and definitely recommend getting a harbor room. There were beautiful sunsets every evening which we enjoyed on the deck with a glass of wine and a gentle breeze. The bathroom was clean, and had a strong, rain shower with plenty of hot water....

Checked in and within ten minutes, a knock at the door from other guests attempting to check into my room. Sure enough my room key and their room keys had same room numbers. Concierge Paul quickly contacted and apologized for that little mistake. The room is extremely small. There are bird droppings all over the balcony and chairs. The sofa... More

We found this hotel on the internet. Its a old hotel that has been cheaply redone. In the rooms there are lots of things are very dated. Bathroom is very tiny. Added sprinkler system is an eye sore. If your looking for a place like the quality of a Motel 6 you won't be disappointed. The view and location are... More

After the recent rain storms on the gulf, were so pleased to enjoy beautiful weather, water and blue skies for our trip recently- a welcome break after a stressful work week. We've stayed at the Inn on Destin Harbor several times, and it's one of our favorites in Destin. It did not disappoint. The staff is always so nice, and... More

This hotel is a great price! On the harbor, great view! Great free breakfast in the nice looking lobby. Little beach and pool. Rooms are not great by any means but they are clean! Friendly amazing staff! This is an old hotel and definitely not a 5 star resort but it's quaint and charming. For the price you can't beat... More
