Stayed here for 3 nights just to get out of Atlanta for a while. The property is clean inside, and the parking lots are well kept and guarded. The rooms are a little run down but nothing shocking - the property is located right on the beach so you can expect some mild moisture and little spots of rust here and there on corners of doors leading outside, but again, it isnt anything shocking or surprising. The rooms are well kept and things look as if they are around 15-20 yrs old, the rooms have had a facelift since being built so that is apparent but like I said, for what you pay and being that it is a beach motel, not a resort, this is pretty standard.

What we were really impressed with was the staff - EVERYONE is really friendly from the housekeeping to the front desk. All were very helpful and everything ran like clockwork. The hotel has a nice spot of beach which is pristine and reserved just for guests - this is really worth the price of admission by itself.

Even though we do not have kids, the hotel is very kid friendly and seemed like a good family atmosphere. If you are looking for an adult friendly venue, this is OK but probably not for you - shell out the extra cash and stay in Sandestin if that is what you want.

Room Tip: The lobby is loud during the evenings and up until about 11PM as there are video arcades, etc. in it...

We arrived in Destin a day early and decided to check in here as it was 11:45pm and we were exhausted. Room was fine - didn't observe the rest of the property. Severely over priced. Not my idea of a place to lay my head, but in a pinch, it was ok.

I just got back from a short mid-week trip with my husband who was in Destin for meetings. This was one of the only hotels we could find anywhere near his allowed price range. We got a king room, which had a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and a sink in a wet-bar type area. The room was quiet and pleasant to spend time in. There is tons of shopping and food at the intersection with the hotel. Destin Commons, an upscale shopping area with food and a movie theater were kitty-corner to the hotel, there were 2 restaurants on the same corner, more across from that including a Cracker Barrel if you don't want to eat the free breakfast. There is also a grocery store, yet more shopping and a Walgreen's on the remaining corner. I would recommend getting your beach umbrella and chair at the grocery store, best prices I saw. The beach is a less than 5 minute walk as is Camille's which is a lovely restaurant. Not at all too far to walk with your beach goodies for the day.

A pleasing hotel close to anything you might need as shopping malls and restraunts are all walking distance, some without having to cross main highway. Beach is within walking distance, but very limited parking available at beach if you cannot walk the distance. Hotel room is small, but comfy. Bathroom walls could stand repainting. Staff is friendly. Would stay again for value as rentals during the summer are quite expensive in this area.

We stayed for 3 days in June & the location was great. In the middled of everything including resturants & 1 1/2 blocks from shopping mall with theater. The beach was about 3 long blocks away but walking distance to a public beach. Breakfast was OK with scrambled eggs, fruit, cereal & pancakes. For a family with children it will save some $$. The room was clean & comfortable & the service was good. I lft my pillow behind & to my surprise a few days later Martha the front desk receptionist cld me & made arragenments to get it to me at a low cost. I though they just through it away. Overall it was a great choice & good value. I would consider staying again.

Room Tip: They recomended a higher floor for less noise & we took the advie with no issues on noise.

Great value & stay in a quiet, clean room. Breakfast, as always at HIEx hotels, was wonderful. Staff super friendly.

Only a couple of blocks from public beach and also near shopping and restaurants. Only a few minutes' drive to Sandestin.

Overall very pleased & would stay here again.

My husband and I we're originally planning to stay at this hotel. We had rented a condo from VRBO.com, but when we arrived there at 11 o'clock at night and saw how disgusting it was we got back in the car and started looking for hotels. Some people I work with had stayed at this hotel, so we decided to give it a try. By the time we got there it was midnight. The man at the desk was so nice! They only had one room available which was a suite. After he heard our story he let us have the suite for the week for the same price as a normal room. The suite was as big as the condo we had originally rented. All of the staff we encountered, including the manager were super nice and accommodating. We're obviously clean freaks, because we wouldn't stay at the original condo. The room at this hotel was exceptionally clean, and well maintained. I wish the hotel was actually on the beach, but public beach accesses are only a few blocks away. Overall, we had a very pleasant stay and would return again.
