“Super vacation value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We stayed in this hotel with our two kids five and two years old. The room was clean but could use a little sprucing up. Shower also needs a little more power. The staff was super helpful and friendly. Located minutes from all the best places! Breakfast was super! We will definitely stay here again. Had a sofa bed but it was not comfortable to sleep on.

I booked this hotel online at the last minute on our way to Destin. We only stayed for one night, thank goodness. When booking, I put in that a search for 6 people and the two bed room came up. It didn't really have much of a description but I thought since I put in 6 people, it would have a sofa bed. Nope. We were stuck requesting a roll away bed and having our 6 year old sleep with us. The room was also musty smelling and the carpet felt damp. Other than that, the property was clean and staff was courteous.

This is a nice hotel in convenient location. It's right across from the street from the beach and great shopping at Destin Commons Shopping Center. There are good restaurants in the area as well, such as TGI Friday's, Olive Garden, and others.

This hotel was perfect. the property is very well maintained. The suites are of a good size for two aduts and two teens. The housekeeping staffing does a great job of ensuring your needs are met. The price was perfect, the pool and hot tub was immaculate. Not too big and not too small. The staff need a great job of checking is in and out quickly. The price was fair and what we were quoted. The property is located right behind a grocery store, publix so you can stock up with frig to help cut down on costs if necessary. The hot cookies every nice and the hot breakfast also help down on costs. The breakfast can be beat. The hospitality staff is quick to refreshen the buffet and everything is very tasty and the variety should please even the most picky eater. My kids enjoyed the make your own Belgian waffles. Some people complained about the wait but its only 2 mins, they were fresh, its only one machine and its popular, the hotel cant be blamed for that. I thank Country Inn for taking is in and making our vacation awesome. I highly recommend this chain.

We left a different hotel because of unbearable conditions and the employees and managers here at Country Inn were so very kind and helpful, especially in light of our last minute booking. They not only met the price of the hotel that we had to leave, but gave us adjoining king suites. Only about 6 blocks from the beach! Housekeeping was impeccable, breakfast was incredible with fresh fruit, cereal, grits, sausage/bacon, eggs, biscuits and gravy, waffles, donuts and more. The cookie jar in the foyer was a constant source of delight to our grandkids. I would definitely recommend staying here and we will continue to stay here anytime we are in Destin.

Grabbed this hotel as a last minute decision while on the road. Ended up with a king suite with pull out couch for the kids. Nice room but could use some updating. Kids loved the pool. Breakfast was average. Noticed security cameras in the hallways and elevators which made me feel a little safer. Overall, good enough for a night but not a whole week. Good location with stores and restaurants around.
