“We Loved It.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2008

Ok - it's small but it's quiet. The rooms are large and it has a microwave and small fridge. They have a beautiful pool and courtyard and it's just a quick walk to the Waffle House and a little longer walk to Red Lobster. Very close to the beach and the Strip. I will stay there again and I will recommend it to others. The only small complaint is, the doors were hard to open, but being on the water.... wood swells.

Stayed May 2008

by far the worste hotel ive stayed at. I felt like it was a place that gets rented out hourly and I just felt dirty. Our lights flickered in the room when they were on too. pretty freaky.

It was HORRIBLE! I had young children with me and the person checking us in was swearing then saying oh, sorry don't want to offend anyone! OVER AND OVER!

Our room! OH MY, open the door to the nasty smell of must! That room had the worst musty smell ever!! The sheets were NOT on the bed all the way that is cause they didn't fit! The bathtub was full of hair. The floor was full of hair.

Phone didn't work, no phonebook! They are keeping you here! Maybe you will clean up the dead lizard that has fallen to shreds when you try to get rid of it.

The toilet had the last guys leftovers in it. It was just not a good hotel!!!!

  • Disliked — it was just bad!

we picked rodeway inn years ago on our first trip to fwb. the pool was very small. the room was very small and smelled of pine-sol. the lighting was dim, i think so we couldn't see how really dirty it was in spite of the pine scent. luckily we had only booked one night and were able to move to holiday inn the next night. after several years and different places we make the nautilus condo our vacation home for a week every june now. never had any problems there and love it. fwb is a little far from the action in destin but makes for a great family vacation.
