“Outstanding experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Stayed here one night in January, in a Studio King.

Appears the rooms are brand new....or at least they looked and smelled new (3rd floor). While I was there, they were renovating the other wing on the 3rd floor.

Not a stain in sight on carpet, couch, furniture, bed. King bed was very comfortable, although the pillows were sort of flat. Shower pressure was good, Room set up was good. Big flat screen HD TV with HBO in the middle of the room, just turn it toward the bed or couch as needed. Kitchen nicely equipped. Internet was speedy and free. Room faced the courtyard and it was quiet except for someone walking by and talking on their cell phone, outside, at 7 am....I could hear them 3 stories up. Don't know if that says more about the windows letting noise in or this clown being a loud talker.

Workout room is nothing to talk about...about 5 pieces of cardio equipment and that's it. But you can run a 3 mile loop around the resort golf course right outside the door, the front desk has a map.

Breakfast was good.....set up is a little odd, so there were some bottlenecks around the hot food and juice, but overall, the usual --- waffles, oatmeal, eggs, meat, juice, biscuts (not fluffy, more chewy, but really good), bananas/apples, melon, coffee. Seating was fine.

Staff was very friendly. Parking was easy and plentiful. This hotel is a little outside Destin but I got Chinese delivered within 20 minutes of calling. Could have walked over to Applebees but didn't feel like anything from there.

I'd come back again!

Room Tip: Get one facing away from Hwy 98

This is the 2nd time that we've stayed at this hotel. It was good both times. Everything seemed clean and wow, can their staff put on a smile! Unlike the first time when we got a separate bedroom, we had one large room with an alcove for the bed. I didn't care for the TV set up. You must choose who is going to watch it - the one in the bed or the one sitting on the couch. Both couldn't watch it at the same time. We sometimes didn't get coffee in the room or shampoo but we managed. The breakfast is great and the breakfast staff couldn't have been more friendly. I have booked a third visit.

Stayed here because I always seek Residence Inns when I travel...However this perticular Residence Inn is better than any I have experience,"Bar none". I travel often due to my business.
The property was kept extreamly CLEAN, the staff always happy to assist. Service is prompt, and very very friendly. I hope to return to this hotel as often as I am able.

Room Tip: request a nice court yard location for quieter room.

The staff here has bent over backwards to make my month-long stay completely stress-free. The front desk staff has been great and has gone out of their way to help me on many occasions. They are both professional and friendly. The wait staff at breakfast and during evening social hour is incredible. They are always friendly and will even cook your waffle for you so you don't burn it. A couple of times I came down late on the weekends and they went out of their way to get me what I wanted for breakfast from the back. Room service staff is also very thorough and prompt. The location is good if you are working in Destin, but the traffic gets a little old if you are commuting to Eglin every day! In any case, this is the closest Residence Inn and it is a gem so well worth the extra driving.

Room Tip: If you like using the stairs, get a room in the east corridor. Rooms on the north side aren't s...

The Staff at the Residence Inn at Grand Blvd. are Great. The Front Desk is always there to assist guests with any questions or request that they might have. Breakfast is convinient for business travelers, The Residence is centrally located near the Fort Walton beaches, close to Pensacola and Panama city. I recommend the Residence Inn at Grand Blvd. in Destin, Fl to all my friends, family, and co-workers. You will find your stay to be a pleasant and relaxing one. The rooms have the essentials to make you feel like you are at home.
Stays might be short or long, but either way your stay at the Residence Inn is going to be great. Like I said before, I cant emphesize the friendly and helpful staff enough from the manager to people that service the hotel. They make you feel comfortable and are always there to help you with anything that you need. I highly recommend the Residence Inn in Sandestin, FL.

Close to everything and the customer service is second to none. Room was very nice except the carpet in the room was dirty. You are close to everything and the free breakfast is good. Other than the dirty carpet we were very satisfied with the hotel.

We stumbled on this Residence Inn on our way back home. It is in great shape, has super friendly staff, and seems like it is fairly new. It is within walking distance to upscale shopping and some fun restaurants. It is also convenient to the outlet mall. We didn't get to the beach this time, but were told there is a private lot to drive to and park close to the beach. The happy hour offerings and breakfasts are a little better than Hampton Inn--not gourmet, but good quick options. I will definitely come back, and next time, we might even bring our dog.
