“Awesome and affordable!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2012 via mobile

This was an awesome place to stay! We get all the pluses of location at an EXTREMELY affordable price. Kathi is wonderful and as a previous reviewer stated treats you like family. Every suggestion for places to eat were great! We sat on our patio area almost every night, we cooked out twice. Perfect! We were able to do two activities, pontoon boat renting in Panama City Beach and a 6hr fishing trip. If we paid what others had to pay elsewhere to stay we would not have been able to do those things! Bedding was really crisp white clean and we slept like rocks, comfy! Bathrooms clean, overall great! She provides you with toys, chairs and umbrellas. Our friends stayed last year and loved it also. Very consistent service!

Best bang for your buck! For half the price you would pay to stay anywhere else in Destin you get - A two minute walk to the beach, a spotless efficiency​ apartment,​ a gas grill outside each unit, owner provides umbrellas,​ chairs, sand toys, boogie boards, etc. AND last but not least, the owner Kathy is sooo nice, helpful & will treat you like family! We will be making many return trips to Old Pier & will be spreading the word to all our friends & family.

You do not get a ocean view whatsoever, but we don't go to the beach to look at it! lol
However the location is private, quiet & the area feels completely safe. And again, only a two minute stroll & you are at the beach!

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.
