I was suprised by the service, we were always greeted with friendly faces.. We had help from Miss Larson, and she made our stay great and was always very helpful and accommodating.. the rooms were kept clean and we didn't feel cramped like we often do in other hotels

SPI is known as one of the best kept secrets to local residents, sort of like that trendy restaurant that nobody wants you to know about. I've recently stayed there and referred business associates for lodging there as well, and it's for good reason: its simply the best mix of luxury and value to be had in the area, period.... More

We arrived at Destin too early for check in. The front desk clerk took my phone number and called when a room was ready. The courtesy continued throughout the stay. A great clean room with all you could ask for in amenities. The continental breakfast was great with a good variety. Last but not least the price was very reasonable.... More

This is a nice hotel. It's a couple blocks from the beach, with probably a 10 minute walk as you have to cross down at the stoplight. They offer a nice breakfast with a decent amount of seating. Very family friendly. They have a fantastic pool and the staff is extremely nice. About the only downside is the amusement park... More

Although this is not exactly a beach-front property, the location is quite convenient. Close to Harbor area, close to SanDestin & Miramar beach as well. The best part is Henderson Beach State Park which is just half a mile drive from hotel and which has plenty of uncrowded clean and quiet beach. We were booked through Windham rewards program here...

We arrived at the hotel on Aug. 13, 2014. When we arrived we had to wait for about 10-15 Mins. for someone to come to the front desk because as we were informed she was doing laundry and also had to take care of the front desk. Then low and behold, the very first room we were assigned had someone's... More
