We needed to book a hotel for Memorial Weekend to attend a wedding in Destin. Many places were requiring a 3 night minimum and we really only needed to stay the one night (since we are returning for my sisters wedding and staying for a week in a month). I have driven through Mary Esther on the way to Destin many times. It is small and clean and only takes about 15-20 minutes to get into the heart of Destin (Mary Esther is right before Ft. Walton along the main highway). We have stayed at Hampton Inn's before and have always been pleased. The rate was good and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The beds were nice and we slept nicely. The rooms have a fridge, microwave, and coffee pot in them. The lobby was very nice and the complimentary breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The staff was pleasant. The pool was clean. There are drink machines, snack machines, and ice machines on each level. It is not located on the beach but is not a far drive. We would recommend it and would stay again.

I would not recommend staying at this hotel unless you are a chain smoker, with a nose that is non-functional Highway noise could make it difficult to concentrate, do work, or sleep if on the highway side. Desk is situated by the air conditioner so you either freeze or suffocate when you turn it off. Staff is pleasant and desires to please, but hotel needs to be far better maintained. Location is adequate Complementary breakfast is average to above average for a Hampton Inn. Staff was understanding and helped me find the room with the least smell. I gathered that they had received comments regarding smell and noise from prior guests. I would have moved to another hotel, but those nearby were booked for the Memorial Day Weekend.

I had a wonderful stay for 11 nights. The room was quiet and clean and the bed was so comfortable and I slept well every night. I also felt very safe and secure. The housekeeping staff was very courteous and kind. Thank you!

Free breakfast; close to Hurlburt and Eglin. Per diem rates. Many places to eat close by, drug store next door, and a laundromat within one mile. Hurlburt Field main gate 5 minutes away. This one has it all.

Not representative of Hampton Inn brand...very tired hotel, outside entry and very small rooms. Poor value for the $121 govt rate. Sign for a new one going up .5 mile west on US 98...will be a welcome change.

This is my second time staying at this hotel. I stayed in October 2012 and returned 4/16 to 4/26, 2013. My second stay topped the first. This is a Hampton Inn Folks, it is not a five star Hyatt but you get five star treatment by the staff. Check in was a great experience very pleasant clerk who had a positive attitude and went out of her way to accommodate my room request. I interacted with this same clerk when my key was demagnetized and she was pleasant both times. She also handled my check-out and again was extremely pleasant. The room appeared to have been upgraded from the last time I was there. It was immaculately clean and there was a small yellow sticky note left by the maid telling me that the sheets and Duvet had been recently changed and was clean. The room smelled nice and the king size bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept on. Pillows were also nice and fluffy. Maid service was outstanding, the maid really cared about how the room looked, my wife made the bed one day and when we came back the bed had been REMADE with hospital corners by the maid--classy. Bathroom was spotless and it was returned to spotless condition daily. Outstanding room service. Hotel offers free hot breakfast and the breakfast lady, Alma I believe was her name, was on top of it every day. She must be a morning person because she was cheery at 0600 and pleasantly greeted everyone and offered advice on area attractions and made sure that you had everything you needed. Not once did I see any food items run low. In addition she kept that breakfast area immaculate and promptly cleaned the table when folks left. There are downs to the hotel however, it is right on 98 so you do get the road noise throughout the evening and early in the morning. All the hotel rooms face the outside and the pool is small. It is a small hotel but the staff makes the place a gem. I rather stay in a place like this with five star service than in a five star hotel with sub-par service.
