We drive (45-1hr) to Destin often to eat and drink at McGuires and we stay at this hotel every time. The staff is friendly but it (sometimes) takes a while to get checked in due to the lack of staff. They have an inside (heated) pool, outside (non heated) pool, and a small hot tub. The rooms are clean and... More

Stayed only one night but will definitely stay again when I come to the area. Small hotel with many comforts and ammenities of the big chains. Great friendly and helpful staff. Excellent value too! Free breakfast included.

We found the Summerplace Inn in Destin Florida through tripadvisor. The price is very low and we couldn't believe all the great reviews. We decided to spend one night and see how we liked it. We found the room so clean and so cozy that we extended our stay to include a second night. The staff is very friendly and... More

Stayed one night with my partner and was pleased with the service, room, and location. Even the free breakfast was decent--fresh waffles! They also provided free parking, which was nice. Check-in time is kind of late at 4 p.m., but they let us check in a little earlier without hassle. No major complaints.

This is my second year to spend a week at the Summer Place Inn in Destin. I love that the staff remembered me by name from last year (being a 60+ year old Grandma with a Harley-Davidson might enhance my visibility somewhat...). ~~ The only reason they didn't receive a "5" is because no one before me reported the burned-out...

My husband and I have stayed here twice and i has been so happy with everything each time. The staff is wonderful and rooms are very nice.

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
