“Good location, good value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

This was our first stay in an Extended Stay America. Our hotel was in a great location on highway 98 in Destin. The room was as avertised, king bed with kitchen facilties, good TV and generally good value for the money. However, out sheets were worn out so thin that you could see through them and the bottom sheet did not fit, kept coming up a the corners during the night. The pool was closed, so we couldn't go for a swim - maintenence they said. In summary, we liked the hotel and might stay there again if only for the location and the price.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay. I am so glad that you liked our hotel's location and our affordable rates. Still, please accept our apologies that the pool was out of service due to a maintenance issue during your stay and that the sheets on your bed were not in line with our company's standards. This is not the norm, and I will be working with our housekeeping staff to ensure this issue is corrected.

Thank your for staying at our hotel. We hope to see you again soon.

Staff was great. Hotel is located in a good area. Everything is close by.Rooms are very small. There was an unclean odor in room. Not sure how well rooms are cleaned. Found items in drawers left by previous guests. Hotel ran out of ice and towels.

Positives for this hotel are: 1) Good location 2) Takes pets 3) staff are eager to help. We got a reduced rate through my husband's employer. Our mini dachshund was $25 extra per night. We were put in a smoking room because of Labor Day bookings. Room was pretty clean and did not smell like smoke. Everything worked. Had a pair of Yorkies in the room next to us. Someone brought them along and then left them in the room all day--they barked up a storm. If you plan on taking your dog and then leave them in the hotel room all day, either stay home or leave the dogs home. Long halls with lots of rooms--halls were clean and quiet. Room had a microwave, toaster, fridge, stove, sink and small table w/2 chairs. Dishes/utensils were for 2. Small coffee maker on counter. Everything was clean. Bathroom was clean. Clean towels were furnished. You make your own bed, take out your own trash, clean your own dirty dishes, you get the idea. This is extended stay. If you want it done for you, you pay extra. If you want clean linen, you pay extra. Did not eat breakfast at the hotel, so cannot rate. Coffee made in the room was good. Did not swim, so cannot rate. Despite having a pet and smoking room, our room was clean and did not smell. The dog did not go crazy when he smelled the room. He did not try to "mark" everything in the room (good thing). I would recommend this hotel for longer stays, but be advised you'll be doing a lot of things yourself. Ask for a room away from the pets. We were on the third floor. No bugs or creepy stuff in the room at all. Air conditioning worked well. Parking lot was clean. I would recommend this hotel.

For Labor Day weekend, we decided to stay here, since its within budget! Minutes away from beach, Destin Commons Mall and Sandestin Outlet.

If you don't mind making your own bed and taking out your own trash and bringing your towels to the lobby to be exchanged for clean towels, it's not so bad.

When we arrived, the room was ready, clean, all the plugs worked, and had clean towels. It was nice of the front office to call to make sure we had everything we needed when we arrived in our room.

It was nice that the room had a pot, pan, 2 plate and utensils, but I wish there were a few more.

Because it was a great location and within my family's budget, I wouldn't mind staying here again.

P.S. It's pet friendly here!

Aside from the fact it looks NOTHING like the pictures on the site, the room never got cool. Stayed really humid and moist. Dishes that were for use were greasy and nasty. NO housekeeping, which was my mistake for not reading the fine print. No vent in the bathroom, well there is a hole up there, just no switch. Pool clearly hasn't been cleaned in a while, a green slime was growing around it. Breakfast was all pre packaged items. Only good thing I can say is the ladies at front desk were very pleasant.

Positives for this hotel are that it has a good location and that the staff were very pleasant. Check in was easy and quick. We had booked non-smoking room, given smoking room that was very stinky. Smelled stale and like an ashtray. Hallway was dirty, with trash on the ground. Two people were talking in the hallway near the pool door with a dog laying on the floor. Got in the elevator to head up to third floor and the elevator had trash on the floor and smelled bad. Room was clean and is stocked good if you need to stay a long period. Has fridge, sink, stovetop, dishes, pans, microwave. Rooms are very small. Bathroom amenities include two bars of soap, nothing else. Room smelled stale and dirty. Hairs in the bed. Did not swim, so can't comment on it. Breakfast room was also dirty, tables extremely worn, breakfast includes pre-wrapped muffins, bagel, cereal bars, instant oatmeal, coffee, apple juice, orange juice and milk/cereal. Parking lot was also littered with overflowing trash cans and lots of cigarette butts.
Avoid if you can.

Room Tip: Room on back side of hotel has not traffic noise. Pet friendly.

I just returned from a visit to Destin, booked this room through travelocity and noted I wanted a Non-smoking room. I was placed on the third floor which smells like a casino. From the time the elevator opens, you will feel as if you are in a heavily smoked casino. I cannot complain about the customer service of the hotel staff, they were nice and apologized and stated they had alot of complaints when third parties book the rooms, this happens often. I had to wash every item we took to get the smoke smell out of our clothing.

So, unless you book this directly from the hotel, my warning to you, is don't book it.
