We loved this motel. Plenty of room, excellent family staff and cleaner than any hotel or motel in Destin! I would highly recommend this motel to any family looking for a great deal vacationing in Destin. Steps from a beautiful beach and close to all restaurants and kids activities.

My girlfriend and stayed at a beach house they maintain across the street. We gave them a cash pet deposit and they said they would send us a check for it in the mail upon inspection of the property. After a couple months we hadn't seen a check in the mail and I gave them a call to let them...

This was our second time staying at the Old Pier. We loved it as much this time as we did last year. Mrs. Kathi is great and the accommodations were perfect. This is our go-to for our couple getaways. Can't wait to return!

Old Pier Motel is a great place to stay! Has everything you need and very close to the water! The property owner Mrs Kathi is one of the best and most personable people we've ever met! Great value for the money. Can't wait to go back. There's even umbrellas, chairs and wave boards you can use in case you forgot...

We are used to a beach front condo but couldn't get it for te full length of our stay. I thought I would be disappointed but it is super close to the beach. Really just enough distance to shake some of the sand off. It is nice that she shares her beach toys. I would stay there again.

Love this place. It is neat and tidy. Kathy is a hoot. She is very attentive to guest needs. The motel is walking distance to the beach. I don't believe there is a better deal . I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. I will be back.

My husband, son and myself stayed in unit #4 for 9 nights in December, 2014. We had a nice time in Destin and Kathi was very hospitable. The room was clean and just what we needed. The motel is tucked in behind other condos and very private. It was only half a block from the beach.

Before my mom passed, this was our annual getaway for the two of us and my kiddo. No fancy amenities but has everything you need and the comforts of home. Mom loved it here. I love it here. Small, quiet, quaint and a 2 minute walk to the most gorgeous stretch of beach in the U.S. At the end of...

We loved Mrs. Kathi! It was like staying at grandma's house. She was sweet and attentive. It is right on the beach and close to all attractions. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. Felt like a home away from home. It has a nice retro feel to it without being dated. It just felt like a community in...

“Unit 4 is on the end away from the office. Very quiet. Surprisingly we couldn't hear the people in the room next to us. I believe they also rent houses which we may do the next time because the prices were so reasonable.”
