We spent two nights at Wingate Inn by Wyndham here in Destin. We enjoyed our stay there, but we decided to spend another night near the beach (although the weather was primarily overcast) and they didn't have vacancy. They indicated that the Comfort Inn was their sister hotel and made a call to see if they had a vacancy. They had the space and we moved over here for our third and last night near the beach.
The Comfort Inn is also a very nice mid-range hotel like the Wingate, however, there were some differences.
Location: The Comfort Inn is about two miles East of the Wingate, right on Highway 98, a little further from central Destin, but definitely closer to the more popular parts of the beach. It is also significantly closer to the Silver Sands Factory outlet mall which is very popular with my wife and the hundreds of other women who frequent it. I must admit the Sony and Bose stores, get my attention too. Wal-Mart is less than one block away and several restaurants are within two miles going west and four miles going East including a PF Chang's.
Outside Appearance: The appearance of the place is impeccable from the outside. No physical deterioration, the grounds are well kept and it is nicely light.
Inside Lobby: Clean, modern and fresh. The room where complimentary breakfast is held is off to the right. The front desk attendant was warm and inviting. She informed us that we were being given the same discount that the Wingate gave us ($70 a night) with a Florida roadside hotel coupon.
Hallways: Simple, clean and well lit.
Room: The furnishings were not fancy, however, they definitely were not cheap. The beds and the entertainment credenza were of quality as well. The room itself was definitely smaller than the Wingate, but it was more than comfortable. They had paintings on the walls and the wall covering material was intact with no rips or tears. We felt quite comfortable at the Comfort Inn of Destin.
This hotel has both an inside and outside pool, wireless internet service and the rooms appear to be well insulated. We didn't hear as much noise from other guests as we did at the earlier hotel.
For the price I think this is a good value for a hotel. I noticed rates around $129 when I went on the web So I know that we got a deal.
I'd recommend this one, just as I would their sister hotel, the Wingate.
I took a few minor photographs.
