Great hotel at a great price. We've paid a lot more for a lot less in the past. Very clean and quiet which we weren't expecting since it is a pet-friendly hotel and was completely booked (lots of dogs and kids). The rooms are a bit narrow but still a good size. We had two queens, fridge, microwave, armchair, desk & chair, and a flat screen TV. The air conditioner is loud and jarring when it comes on but we quickly got used to it. The surroundings aren't the nicest but not terrible and we never felt unsafe. Destin is a short drive away, a straight shot east on Miracle Strip Pkwy. Lots of shops and local eats along the way. Unfortunately we didn't get to try out any restaurants. We ended up spending our days on the beach (stopped at Publix to filled our cooler) then came back to the hotel and passed out. Woke up around 11pm and had Wendy's for dinner.
The best part of the hotel was breakfast. We arrived around 8am and asked for the nearest restaurant expecting the typical continental breakfast. Boy were we surprised! The breakfast area was spacious and clean. The food was delicious and there was something for everyone. Coffee, hot chocolate, apple & orange juice, tea, apples, bananas, oranges, biscuits & sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, sausage, bagels, danish, muffins, raisin bread, yogurt, grits, oatmeal, cereal, and of course make-your-own waffles with syrup, strawberries, and whipped cream.
Loved the hotel and planning on coming back.
