“Terrific Staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The staff were helpful and very friendly. The harbor view was worth the extra $10.00. The room was only average, but a good price. Had a little problem with the bedding, and the manager immediatly came and changed them for us and appologised. Continental breakfast is included and on Wed. 5-7 pm free wine tasting in lobby and on Fri., champange. Location is good and close to many wonderful restaurants and shopping.

Me and my family stayed in this hotel last weekend and that was awesome. The place is so cozy, location is nice, lots of restaurants close by (McGuire's is the best, be ready to wait in line though). Staff is great, specially Kate and Alina, they were really helpful and accommodating.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a room on the harbor side.

Checked in and was upgraded to an Harbor view at no charge, entered room only one light worked, refrigerator did not work and bath tub was full of hair! Called front desk and was moved to a new room that had lights that worked and clean tub. The lobby of this hotel is nice but that is where it ends the rooms are old popcorn ceilings with stains and cracks, the carpets are old and dirty. The fixtures and outlets are old and cheap. The breakfast was decent and in a nice room looking out over the harbor. I again say the Staff was very friendly and accommodating but the owner needs to invest in this property - it needs help. First time in Destin and this left a very bad impression on us.

Thanks for your feedback. We love our staff and its so nice to hear our guests do too! We've done some upgrades in the past couple weeks, including repaving the parking lot, new lamps with multiple outlets on their base, new paint, etc. And we have plans for more improvements. We'd love for you to come back and check it all out!

My wife and I have been vacationing over the past three weeks staying at hotels in Florida on the Atlantic Ocean's sea shore with breath taking ocean views. With the Christmas vacation drawing to a close, we headed back to the Mid West. We headed west across Florida, driving on Highway 98 hugging the Florida Panhandle's southern coastline with its peaceful views of the Gulf of New Mexico.

While surfing the Internet for our first nights stop in the Destin/Ft Meyer area, I came upon the Inn on Destin Harbor hotel with beautiful pictures of its location on Destin's harbor. Since we were trying to hang on to hotels with nice water views we made our reservation to stay there. We were not disappointed. We had a room with a balcony over looking this beautiful harbor sprinkled with its gorgeous yachts. The lobby and the continental breakfast areas also over looked this scenic view.

The bonus to our stay at the Inn on Destin Harbor was the pleasant friendly welcome we received during our check in from the receptionist, Katrina. We found that same friendliness from the other hotel staff during our breakfast and check out, as we said our good buys to Florida and our recent found memories of the past three weeks with her beautiful sea shore views.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have the view of the harbor

Check in was fast. Luggage rack was helpful. The room was very nice with a king bed, coffee maker, couch, and a great view of the harbor from our private balcony. There was sufficient security locks on the door. The rooms had inside entrance and an elevator. The room and public areas looked to have new carpet. Dogs are allowed for a fee. We also enjoyed the breakfast in a nice , but small area overlooking the harbor. Checkout was a breeze. Will stay here again.

Room Tip: Harbor side is about 20.00 more per night, but if view is important it is worth it.
