Best hotel in Destin?

A girlfriend and I are planning a trip to Destin for four days in March. Where's the best play to stay, considering that we can spend about $250/night? Thanks!

For the money I would try a small condo on the beach. We have been going to destin/Seagrove for years-----beaches are the best anywhere. You might look into resortquest .com for accomadations with pictures and rates. We have for the last few years rented thru owners at vacation rentals by owner -vrbo.com and saved money and have stayed in some very nice condos on the beach. There are lots of pictures and scuds of properties to select from. Have a good time

Take a look at The Pelican Beach Resort, website = www.pelican-beach.com Good location in Destin. The previous post is correct about getting a condo. There several available - Gulf Front is always great if it fits the budget. The resort I referenced has one bdrms with two baths. the units have balconies with excellent gulf front views! The location is good for resturants and night life.

Don't go to Pelican Beach Resort during March unless you are a college student. They are one of the very few places who rent to people under the age of 21. There is always some type of trouble. If you are a college student, you may want to look toward Panama City. They have more activities.If not, then you may want to call Newman Dailey Resort Properties, www.destinvacations.com. They handle a wide variety of properties, usually the better ones. Also, you may want to consider staying in Sandestin. www.sandestin.com. There is a lot to do there without leaving the property.

Agree with checking out Sandestin Resort. Depending upon when you go the traffic in Destin has gotten pretty bad. If you venture off the property at all you won't have to go far. There are alot of options for accommodations. Check out their site.
