“Very clean in great shopping location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

We stayed here for a week while on a work trip with my husband. The hotel was very clean, the staff was excellent and it is in a great shopping area not too far from the beach. We enjoyed the pool and the large lobby. Great stay.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor on the end facing the golf course. The highway is very loud when you are...

Quality customer service because of staff at the front desk and management (Brandi). This hotel is excellent! It is so big that you are not ever running into other guests and it feels private. The rooms smell clean and fresh and new. This is important to us -smell. We visited the full week of July 4th which is of course PEAK, busy season and they made this stay comfortable! We have recommended them and we will be back again soon.

You cannot go wrong with a stay at this location.

Room Tip: Facing the golf course on an upper level.

Stayed here for 6 days with the family. Great hotel, clean rooms and friendly staff. The pool area is awesome as well. Kids loved bouncing from hot tub to pool. The new cafe is wonderful. Breakfast each day was perfect. It allowed us to eat and be on our way quickly. Perfect location within distance from dozens of public beaches. We liked the fact that it wasn't in a crowded part of town. The shopping center within walking distance with plenty of restaurants, stores, and Publix was great.

I would highly recommend staying here whether or not you are a marriott rewards participant.

Spacious, clean rooms. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The lobby has an excellent, new concept that is a cafe, bar, coffee bar with nice seating. The breakfasts we had there were all very good, fresh fruit, freshly scrambled eggs, breakfast sandwiches, Starbucks coffee and a limited wine/beer cabinet. It is convenient, clean and modestly comfortable, along with the rest of the lobby, which had computer access, books, reading areas and is nicely laid out.
Location is OK, it does not have beach access. You have to drive for that.
Overall Id give this 3.5 to 4, the 3.5 because you come here for the beach, but have to drive several miles to a public beach.

Thank you for your post! I am glad that you had such a pleasant stay at our hotel and felt that you were receiving the most bang for your buck! We are so proud of our recently renovated lobby area - especially the "library." We encourage our guests to lounge with us and peruse our shelves for reading material. You can even borrow the books and read them in your room! While we are a short drive to the beach, I hope you will consider staying with us again soon for your Destin vacations!

My husband and I stayed at the Courtyard for a long weekend. It's very close to public beaches - 5 min drive and also to beaches with restaurants - Whaletales and Pompano Joes. Parking at the public beaches is a premium so leave early or go late. The hotel has a great bar and restaurant if you don't want to go out. Ask for a balcony room away from hwy 98. Service and cleanliness were excellent. We did stay on the 3rd floor and never used the elevator (slow) unless we had luggage etc. Pool and workout facilities are nice. Never a crowd at the pool. This hotel is out of the major hustle and bustle of Destin which we liked. A few very nice restaurants close by - Stinky's was one of the best but also check out Vue on 30a for a nice romantic dinner.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony away from hwy

We were here for a short visit of three nights. We were greeted with big, friendly smiles, and our check-in was quick and easy.

Our room was very nicely prepared, and we were able to settle in. One note: when we first entered the room, we noticed a strong deodorizer smell. We opened the balcony door and let the room "air our" for about 20 minutes, which helped a lot. The next day, we asked the front desk staff to direct housekeeping to nit use the deodorizer; they did not use it again and we had not further issue with it. We appreciated the staff's ability to communicate with housekeeping and take care of that for us; some hotels can't get simple things like that done.

IMPORTANT: Marriott Platinum Elite Members do not get a free breakfast here. I drove west about 2-miles to a local Panera Bread and enjoyed a bagel and coffee there.

The beaches are only 2-3 miles away.

Our stay was uneventful, which is a good thing. We highly recommend this hotel and would certainly stay here again.

I stayed here for two nights while visiting family in the area. The location is adjacent to the Sandestin Resort and a major highend outdoor shopping complex within walking distance. While the traffic in the surrounding area is heavy during the summer, it is far enough away from the outlet mall about two miles away. The hotel is not on the beach, but there are several local parks on the beach within a few minutes drive.

This hotel is very well kept and maintained and appears to have had a recent renovation as all the funiture and carpeting looked brand new. The facility was very clean and maintained indoors and outdoors. The lobby has plenty of seating areas to relax and offers a number of books to read. There is a nice outdoor pool with adequate seating and shade. There is also a hottub and separate kiddy pool.

The staff here was very friendly and accomodating, and I hope that I have many opportunities to stay here in the future.

Thank you ATLtraveler766! I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! I think our location is perfect too - we are just far enough away from the hustle and bustle to not be bogged down by bumper to bumper traffic. But we are still close enough to access all of Destin's wonderful offerings! I am glad that our team was able to take great care of you and we can't wait to have you stay with us again!
