“Clean hotel, modern, great when traveling with pets.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This hotel was pet friendly, which was the main reason we chose it. Modern, newer, very clean. Basic breakfast, was kept up well. Friendly staff. They have an area next door to walk your dogs, which is basically an empty lot with a small green grass area. Needs more lighting in this area, as there was panhandlers across the road and also at the stoplight before you get to the hotel. I had my husband take the dog out at night, as I didn't feel safe going out by myself. Not directly on the beach, but a block or two away. Would stay here again.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

Property was very clean, and the free breakfast a plus. Nothing fancy. Hotel room was clean and well appointed, and the hot water always available for the shower. Pet friendly was the main-attraction, and the easy access to the Destin area. Liza Jackson park was just a mile down the road for leisurely walks w/the dogs. One note...the beaches in Destin and FWB are NOT pet accessible. If you drive farther out to the beaches of South Walton off 30A, they allow dogs on the beach (but supposedly only for local residents w/permit..but we didn't have any issues the two days we were out there visiting w/o the permits).

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor were easy access to the dog walking spot behind the property

This was a very clean hotel. Tastefully decorated. Staff was very friendly. If you travel with dogs this is a great place to stay! Very pet friendly. Breakfast was very satisfying and filling, full array of items. We stayed over Christmas and the staff was very kind, no bah humbugs! Lol. Will definitely stay again.

We have made many trips to the beaches of the Florida panhandle. From Panama City to Ft Walton Beach this is the nicest hotel room we've had without paying a bundle. We've stayed at six or seven other places in the area and this one has the best value for your dollar. For the past few years we've been traveling with our aging Chihuahua and La Quinta Inns have been a moderately priced pet-friendly place to stay. This has to be the best La Quinta Inn we've ever seen. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was great, we got a King with a sofa sleeper. This was a smoke-free hotel and the management enforces it! The breakfast buffet was good, but make sure you try the Donut Hole in Destin. This hotel is not a resort, nor is it on the beach, but it's close to Eglin AFB, Destin shopping, public beaches, and lots of great sea food. We'll be back going back real soon! See you there.
