There isn't anything really special about the hotel but it is a great place to stay. You cross US 98 at the light so it's a 10 min walk to the beach. We reserved online so check-in was easy. The hotel was clean and only a 5-10 min ride to restaurants and shops. They allow pets but I'm unsure of... More

It's not the Hilton or anything but it definitely is clean and friendly environment. A short walk to the beach. Swimming pool and Jacuzzi were not over crowded. Balcony room was on the front so you can see the beach from your room

Convenient hotel in the middle of Destin. Rooms were decent. Beds comfy. We arrived at 2 pm and our room was not ready which was not a big deal since checkin is 4 pm. We stayed in a 4th floor 2 queen room which is called a suite I suppose because of the balcony. It was roomy enough for 3... More

The room was clean. It could... More

This was my third stay at the Summerplace Inn. We snagged an awesome deal on Priceline.com (2 nights for $112). Curb Appeal: Clean and inviting. No trash with freshly manicured landscaping. Entry: Clean. Smells fresh. Entry door could use cleaning. Hand prints were obvious, but no biggie. The furniture in the lobby was clean and not worn. There was even... More

This is a fairly nice place to stay. It is about 15 min walk from the beach so you aren't able to see the beach while here. We are here during spring break but we don't see the usual spring break part crowds here. We are in a double queen room and it is very comfy and clean. The continental... More

Great Place to stay. I can not believe the deal we got. Do not pass this hotel up. The staff is great, gave us directions to the places that we were going while we were there. The location of the hotel is in such a great spot. Can't wait until our trip back this summer.

In Destin, this is a great place to stay. The staff is outstanding. The amenities are great as well as the price and visitors its across the street from the beach. There are plenty of hotels on "98" but this is the best one we have stayed in and mainly due to the excellent staff!!!!

Stayed the week before spring break and the hotel was great. The breakfast in the morning was great. The hot portion was not the same every day and the waffle station was great. Staff are friendly and very informed. Price was great and the only complaint was the small airport behind the hotel a few blocks but the planes never... More
