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.
