My husband, young daughter and I recently stayed at both cottages at the Old Pier Motel in Destin after a last-minute booking. We were recommended to this establishment by another hotel that was booked. We saw the other glowing reviews here on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed by our experience! The cottages were extremely clean and included full kitchens, outdoor showers, beach chairs and toys for our use, and comfortable beds. Beach access was very close (only a short walk) and the hotel was in a very convenient location. Best of all was the price - most of the vacation rentals charge twice what Old Pier charges per night! We had a blast and we will definitely be back in Summer 2014 for a much longer stay!
