Found a great deal on Booking.com for $104/night, so we tried SummerPlace out. For our needs, it was perfect. The rooms were large enough that we weren't cramped and stepping on each other. The bathroom was large, and the king bed was decent. The sofabed was a bit worn, and the toilet liked to backup (never overflowed), so those were... More

Initially upon seeing this is #7 in trip advisor and reading reviews, my husband and I thought this place was a steal at $99 a night. I was so proud for finding this "deal". Upon checking in, the front desk receptionist was so sweet and HELPFUL to our family. We were able to go to our room a little before... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and although this place is not beachfront, it is literally 3 minutes down the road to Henderson Beach, which I loved. (Beach across the road is private for the resorts only) The rooms are pretty standard for a hotel, decently cleaned, pretty good sized bathroom, and free breakfast which consists of waffles, muffins, bagels, oatmeal,...

Stayed in a Traditional Room: 2 Queen Beds. Room was clean, no complaints. We had a room facing South towards the highway. We did not have a balcony, but I feel like it was not needed, nothing to look at besides cars. Would stay again.

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
