“Great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

Great place to stay in Destin Fl. Just a few minutes from the beach and dinning. Outstanding guest services, staff was very friendly and helpful. Will highly recommend SummerPlace Inn to my family and friends.

It is difficult to find a good place to stay for a day or two at a reasonable rate in Destin in the summer. The condo fees for cleaning and other fees add up, so this is a good choice. I liked it over the Holiday Inn. Not on the beach but the state park is close as are other access points. WARNING 2 hours in the sun here can burn you.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review about SummerPlace Inn. We pride ourselves on offering more than the other select service hotels in Destin (such as the Holiday Inn Express) and a higher quality of service as one should and would expect when visiting Destin in the summer season. Thank you also for sharing some great advice to future guests in the area - as a vacation spent burnt - can be a truly miserable experience. We remind all of our guests - USE SUNSCREEN! This guests advice is one we share as well! Again, thank you for sharing about your experience here at SummerPlace Inn and we hope to see you again in the near future!

Best Regards,
Mistelle Langen, General Manager

Our stay was great the staff was so nice & helpful, this is our 2nd timeits on a busy street but its near were everything is located in walking distance. To get a better view of the Beach stay on the 4th floor facing in front, you will get to see all the whats happening outside. but you will have to walk to the beach, you just have to cross the Emerald coast & its busy. but its worth it. I also like the inside & outside pool & breakfast. I would stay again.

Room Tip: stay on 4th floor.

Overall, this was a very impressive property in Destin.

The bed was firm but comfy with really good pillows. Bathroom had a great shower.

Breakfast served our purpose with adequate choices including eggs, sausages, variety of cereals, waffle machine & plenty of fresh fruit.

Sadly, we had only a one night stay. If circumstances allowed, we would have stayed here for a longer period.

We are so pleased that you were impressed with your stay at SummerPlace Inn. I am very happy to hear of your satisfaction with our bedding and pillows. We just changed out all of our pillows in the hotel - now offering two different types of pillows in every guest room - and we hope all of our guests find these new pillows as enjoyable as you. We hope that if you have the opportunity to return to Destin that we are able to offer you great service and comfort on your stay as well! Thank you for taking the time to share about experience with us!

We booked via Travelocity and so I wasn't expecting a room with a balcony or a high level floor. We were facing the back. No complaints. The room was very clean and modern. Our fridge wasn't working but the front desk was right on it, and by the time we returned an hour or so later, it was up and running properly. The beds and pillows were comfy and the staff was really nice. It's close to everything and you can walk to the beach. The free breakfast was nothing to get excited about but I'd stay here again, definitely.

Room Tip: Don't pay extra for a balcony room because you won't really get a view of the beach, if that...

Thank you for sharing about your experience at SummerPlace Inn. The greatest compliment is when guests share that they will be back to stay with us again. Please know that if we have rooms available - we are always happy to place our guests with their preferred views. On your next visit - please let us know in advance if you do prefer a room facing front so that we can make a notation and try to accommodate that request :)

We asked for a quiet room, as we'd been travelling all day. We expected some traffic noise, given the location, but it was louder than I've ever experienced in a similar location, ie on a busy road. Upgraded windows would be a good idea. But on top of that, the hotel is right next to a go-kart racing track, which kept on going til about 10.30pm - so much for a restful evening after a long day's driving.

After the noise from the karts and traffic had started to die down, we were awoken by noises that sounded like power tools, or a dinosaur with a cold, but which we worked out were plumbing noises from other rooms flushing toilets.

Breakfast, described in the hotel's own publicity as "deluxe" or words to that effect, was standard "free" hotel breakfast, but with less choice than you find at the cheaper hotel chains - definitely nothing special.

We booked this place in a hurry and based on its Tripadvisor rating, which must be based on facilities we didn't use, as I don't think it is deserved for its rooms, location or breakfast.

Room Tip: At the back, away from the 98, and away from the go kart race track. It'll probably still be no...

I am sorry that you did not have the restful vacation you had hoped for when staying at the SummerPlace Inn. We strive very hard to meet all our guests expectations - and sometimes we are unable to deliver the service and product our guests desire. I deeply regret that we seem to have failed you during your stay.

As the general Manager of hotel, I can be very critical. My husband and I vacationed in Destin the year and stayed at the Summerplace Inn. You can not go wrong. Clean rooms, great staff and close to everything. Just a hop, skip and jump from the beach. Thank you for a great vacation Summerplace! We will be back!
