This hotel is as good as the price the charge. The rooms really weren't bad at all the location is very close to the beach. It's in walking range of many restaurants and shopping stores. It looks a little ghetto but you can't beat the price. The breakfast could of been better but the staff was amazingly nice including the... More

I discovered this place a few years ago and have stayed several times since. It is clean and the beds are wonderful, including the linens. Very comfortable. My rooms have always had microwave, refrigerator, safe and coffee. Air conditioner is so quiet you can barely hear it. Breakfast is free, but I've never eaten it. The rooms are inside corridor....

Good place, Great value, and convenient. I stayed at this Inn while on vacation. Don't let any negative posts sway your decision to stay at this property. From the outside it is 6 stories tall and has the stairs and elevator on the exterior. The rooms are accessed via interior corridors. I stayed on floor 6 facing East. The room... More

Thank you Emerald Coast Inn for a wonderful time! Your staff from the front desk to the cleaning crew were super friendly and always helpful. Rooms were clean and beds were super soft. The pool was small but clean and refreshing. Free breakfast was always hot (could have used some scrambled eggs too) and the waffles were great. Plenty of... More

Rooms are decent size, but bathroom is very small and hard for 2 adults and a toddler to all get ready. Breakfast is free -- sausage, biscuits, gravy, 1 waffle maker, cereal, muffins, bread, and Danishes. All good, but I wish they had a few more options other than so many carbs! Breakfast room is small (4 tables) so make... More

We stayed here the night we flew in for the week and before we moved into condo the next day. It was fine for that purpose but don't stay here for your vacation. It's older, rooms are so-so, breakfast not worth fighting the people for (didn't eat it but looked bad). We could not wait to check out and get... More

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights while attending a wedding in Destin. I was very pleased with the rate for our king room considering that it was during the week of the Independence Day holiday.

Average hotel. Service was outstanding. Could us some updates in the room but clean and efficient. Close to everything so if you can brave the traffic you are set to shop, do some beach activities or go to a restaurant
