We arrived in Destin two days earlier than planned and had to find a place to stay since the hotel we had reservations for later in the week was booked solid when we arrived. They recommended Old Pier.
It is like an apartment with a kitchen, full refrigerator, living/dining area and a nice tv. It was clean and quiet and the owners were so nice!
It is very close to the beach and tucked in between other hotels. It is worth checking out. The price was extremely reasonable. We were not disappointed.
