My wife and I have stayed here twice, and we had a great time each time. The view and beach access are fantastic. It is within walking distance to a great restaurant, and easy driving distance to any restaurant in Destin. Get an upstairs room.

We came back after staying last year! Great price and attentive staff. Can't beat the fact that you are right on the beach at such a great rate! No room service but you are located near several stores and restaurants! Clean hotel - we will certainly be back next time!

This is a great place for the price. It is located within minutes of any type of restaurant. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Walk out your back door to your private deck on the beach. Will definitely be returning.

This old motel on Scenic 98 is a diamond in the rough. It's in a great neighborhood, no where near any of the mega-places, steps to the white sand beach. We practically have the place to ourselves as this is the off-season. Weather has been foggy and misty in the upper 50's. Breaks in the wet give plenty of time... More

unfortunately poor weather for our 2 night stay so we couldn't enjoy the wonderful patio right outside our room on the beautiful white sand beach. The room was a bargain as it was off season. The only reason I didn't give it an excellent rating is the bathroom and shower were hobbit size and the bed in our room (#7)... More

We were at Sea Oats in October and had a better time than we did in August. Everything was perfect, our usual kitchenette, the water, the beach...even the weather cooperated a lot better on this trip. As always, the staff were very nice. The only way it could have gotten any better was for us to not have to leave.... More

We were not going to stop in as the sign said "Motel", and my husband and I were looking for something romantic…this place was PERFECT! It was clean, staff was friendly and it was really quiet and relaxing. Rooms are right on the beach…do not agree with someone who stated it was not on the sand…this hotel has decks right... More

Stayed on the 1st floor 1 bedroom, kitchen. Our parking spot is right outside our door. Perfect location. Our patio steps right out to the white sand beach! Love Sea Oats Destin! Will definitely stay there again.

I traveled to Destin, Florida this past week (10/12 - 10/19). The weather was great, the high - mid 80's, lows - mid 60's. We stayed in unit M-3. This is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. I was shocked at how modern it was on the inside. It looked practically new with tile floors, new appliances and updated island... More

This is my 3rd time here and we keep coming back. It's a step back in time to a small hotel on the beach. It's totally perfect for a quick get away or a long vacay. The staff is super nice and everything is clean.
