“Great location and pet friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

This is an older hotel that is family owned. We had some issues with repairs that needed to be made in our room which was very frustrating and disappointing but I must give credit to an excellent manager that made things right. The hotel is in an excellent location, walking distance to plenty of good restaurants and it is clean. Parking is easy. The pool is nice and the lounge chairs are comfortable. If you travel to Destin with your pet and want a great view of the water, this is a good pick.

First of all, it IS kind of a luxury ,boutique type place.it's not until you see the flat screen t.v. duct taped to the top of the fire place that you begin to notice somethings going wrong here...great views of the harbor for sure. super staff,VERY fast wifi, and all in all a quirky,Destin, funky sort of place..."water front "means "harbor" not ocean, and "city view" means motel 6, not Manhattan. Would I stay here again? Probably! Its just the frat house approach to decorating that's got me a little thrown off here....

After reading this review, I immediately went to the lobby to check out the duct tape job on the flat screen, but was relieved to not see any. Perhaps there was an issue that day and if so, it's long been fixed. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave this review. It gave us a laugh too!

This was our fourth time staying here and we have loved it every time. We always get a harbor view and live on the balcony. This year we were able to watch dolphins playing in the harbor. They have a great pool and the front desk has always been super nice. We can't wait to go back in a few months!!

We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your (4th!) stay with us. The harbor view is beautiful and it's always good luck when you see dolphins out there. Hopefully you'll see them again next time! We look forward to your return!

We were very disappointed in the room. Beds poor, windows rattled, could not wait to check-out.

The staff was very friendly. Great view of the harbor! Breakfast was okay, easy parking, only 1 small elevator.

Great harbor view. Very close to walk to all of the action down the road. Our room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed watching the goings on outside on the balcony. The breakfast was fair. For the price I cannot complain. I see room for improvements in the quality of the furnishings and overall upkeep but appreciate z smaller hotel as well.

Stayed here only because pet friendly hotels are so scarce. Previous reviews pretty well warned of the lack of maintenance. Our AC unit worked but poured water onto our patio making sitting outside less than desirable. Too bad! View is wonderful of Harbor but who their feet soaking in moldy water? The mattresses were sagging and old. Bed Linens were clean and towels adequate though. Very friendly staff at check in and checkout. I won't come back unless the place was overhauled.
