“Lovely Boutique Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

The Harbor View rooms have a beautiful view and this carries over to the lounge/eating area as well. While our room was spacious and airy (all rooms have balconies), I found the bathroom area extremely small. The breakfast was quite adequate, but the area became congested if too many people were eating at the same time. The open staircase to all the floors was very welcoming and conducive to taking the stairs rather than the elevator. Staff members were all very pleasant and helpful. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Fabulous view from water side.

I love this place - Inn on Destin Harbor. Your staff is one of the most professional, thorough, and courteous groups I’ve worked with. This is an immensely appreciated departure from some of the other venues i’ve used in the past. They follow up with detailed information, and even my most seemingly pedantic requests have been noted and incorporated into event plans. On top of their performance, the desk and housekeeping staff are outgoing, friendly, and thorough. My appreciate to Ecaterina and Alina, they are so kind, friendly and tolerant. They gave me excellent service including special training skills. Absolutely loved your hotel and staff. I travel every weekend and this has been the best experience to date. You have a professional staff and a beautiful hotel!

We have stayed at the Inn several times over the past couple of years. It is centrally located to most of the fun in Destin. The Harbor View rooms have a terrific view of the boat fleet. The Inn staff is very accomodating, and all are very pleasant. We have stayed in the dog friendly room, and even 'sammy' is made welcome. If you are looking for a 4 star, go on down the road, but if you are looking for a charming stay at a very affordable price, then spend a week here. We are already booking our next trip down in March.

Room Tip: Ask for the Harbor View, although they are slightly higher in price.

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!
