“Nice Break before a family week”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was our pre vacation before the week long family beac vacation in Destin, FL. It is an old property that has been upgraded but still lives with the old concrete structure. The staff was excellent. From the front desk to the ladies in the dining room for breakfast, everyone made us feel welcome. We hope to come back again!

Room Tip: Go for one of the end of floor suites !

The facility is somewhat odd looking. When you pull in there is a circular entry to check in and behind that are garden style (old school motel looking buildings with two floors) beyond that is a tired looking 6 story beach facing hotel. Upon walking in to the building to check in you get to appreciate the facility despite its aged facility. There are two pools, impeccably kept yards between the two old motel buildings and beyond that is the outdoor bar and beach. We had drinks at each of the bars and the bartenders were very helpful and gave great restaurant suggestions. We also ate the buffet, they could do better-eggs were left on the warming tray too long and were almost crusty and the fruit seemed like it was sitting for a while as well ( and we were there at 8:30 am).

Our room was in great condition, bed was very comfy and we really enjoyed the ocean view. Overall we found the staff very nice and helpful. Despite its ugly wrapper it is a nice facility and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Join SPG and utilize the bump up to ocean front. I am certain staying in the garden units would have...

Thank you for such a great review of our hotel. I have shared your breakfast comments with our chef so she knows to keep a closer eye on those. We are undergoing some great renovations in the off-season that will greatly improve that "ugly wrapper" you mentioned in your review. We want the drive-up to be just as beautiful as the grounds and our guestrooms. Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel. We look forward to your next visit.

Hotel was like a Motel. Clean but not worth it. Picture on website very deceiving. Would not stay there again. Construction going on in Hotel and next to it. Very humid and very outdated. Only lobby looked decent, room very old fashioned.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize we did not meet your expectations. I think the picture you are mentioning in your review is the one taken of our six story beachfront tower. We do also have two buildings that have views of our beautifully landscaped courtyards and pool areas. We try to make that very clear on the room descriptions when you are booking so you know you are getting a "garden view" room and not the "beachfront view" room. We hope you will come back and try one of the beachfront rooms in the future and see if we can change your mind. Regards, Jeremy Skinner - General Manager

I pretty much agree with the good and the bad reviews on this hotel. The only way that this is a real value is if you are an SPG member and can get the cash+points. Spending full price on a beachfront room or using 10k points is just too much for what you get. The hotel is decent, although motel style. You do get the traditional four points amenities and a soft bed to sleep on, but the hotel itself is aged and for some reason our room was oddly humid. So humid to the point that any papers we had laid out felt like it had gotten wet then left to dry. Its a short drive to the main strip of Destin and if you stay here, I highly recommend driving down there as the water is more "emerald" We ate at The back porch and checked out Henderson state park which are nice.

Thank you for your review. I know the humidity here is very different if you are not used to it. If you leave your sliding glass door open that faces the water it can definitely get in your room more. As far as the water, the gulf area has seen more seaweed this year than usual. It is not concentrated in any one area and can change in a matter of hours. I apologize it was not more clear during your stay. Regards, Jeremy Skinner - General Manager

Had a great stay, although just one night, but was super pleased. We were in a two queen corner suite, which is the way to go, as it has a very large balcony, with a dining size table, four chairs and two lounges.

The room was nice and large, very new, granite counters in the bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen also had an almost full size fridge/freezer, microwave and bar with two nice barstools. With a separate sitting area with a sleeper sofa and large flat screen, and also the bedroom area, with another flat screen, there was plenty of room to spread out, with a family of four (12 and 15 year old daughters).

The view was perfect, less than 50 yards from the water and right by the pier. The Kiwi pool bar/grill was great, very good food, and John the bartender there treated us like regulars, so friendly.

Ashley at the front desk saved the day, though, when I called from Atlanta to see if we could get early check-in, as our teenager was not feeling so great. After a quick check, she said they had a room like we had reserved clean and ready and we could check in at any time. And this was at 9 a.m., folks. Our daughter was able to go straight to our room when we arrived, sleep the balance of the day and we had a great evening after that. It's not always possible to accommodate requests like that, but it sure did save a whole day of our vacation, so big thanks!

The grounds were lovely, very clean. The pool looked nice, although I didn't use it, just the beach. We probably won't stay here again, because we find it easier to go the condo route. But we were very pleased with our day/evening there.

Room Tip: corner suites are very roomy

We also used our Starwood points for our vacation. This was our first visit to Fort Walton/Destin. First I do have to say we got lucky and had beach front room. The room was o.k., being a affialated with a Sheraton didn't seem to look like one. It was easy to get to the beach and get to both of the pool's. They did have a shower to wash off the sand. The bar by the beach did close early by 7p.m.(what's the point to have a bar by the beach when you can't enjoy being outside having a drink). They did have a restaurant/bar inside which did not have any drink special's. I did enjoy the breakfast buffet but I thought it was a little overprice for me especially when you are feeding a big family. They staff seemed somewhat friendly. They cleaning service was not up to standards. The sad thing was we were unable to enjoy the beach to much do to the seaweed problem they had due to the rain they were getting.( You have to blame mother nature on that.) The sand was pretty and soft. They do have a exercise room which was nice. Also they did have a Pirate to come out to perform a magic show for the kids which was fun. Overall it was o.k.,might give it a second chance in the future.

Thank you for your review. I have seen several comments about the seaweed and we did have more this year than usual. Unfortunately, all of the hotels and condos along the gulf had the same problem. We make sure there is always a restaurant open on property but we do close the tiki bar as it gets close to dark. Our bar and restaurant inside stays open until 11pm though. I hope you will come back and give us another try so you can see the beautiful water. Regards, Jeremy Skinner - General Manager
