“Jess is the reason to stay here!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

We stayed at Beachside for 3 nights. Just checking in made me glad we chose this Inn. Jess is a ray of sunshine and I don't think she ever quits smiling. The check-in process was quick and the rooms are just fine. We had a king-size bed, small microwave, small fridge, coffee maker and free coffee and muffin from the next door cafe. The location is fine, the beach is just across the street. The swimming pool is just beautiful. It isn't cheap--we paid $677 for 3 nights. But, it is on the old highway and away from the heavy traffic. We chose this Inn so we could bring our pets. We didn't bring them after all, but we love to support pet-friendly businesses.

The Beachside Inn is fantastic. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are clean. It's location on Crystal Beach is a bit off the beaten path which is nice but it's also convenient to the rest of Destin and very close to lots of shopping. The beach is right across the street and there is a view of it from the pool. Camille's is upstairs in the same building. This restaurant is awesome. We ate there 3 nights in a row. Each meal was excellent - some of the best i've had in 15 years of vacationing in Destin. It's nice to be able to get a great meal without having to drive after spending all day at the beach/pool.
The only downside is road noise. The Inn is located at the corner of Old 98 and Hutchinson. Hutchinson turns into Danny Wuerffel Way (Mid Bay Bridge) which is a pretty major thoroughfare. Also, we were there during the week and when the garbage truck arrived early one morning, it sounded like it was driving into our room. Other than that, it was a great experience and we would definitely stay there again.

We found the Beachside Inn listed on a Bed and Breakfast site. I would not consider it a true B&B, but they will give you vouchers for a continental breakfast at the restaurant on site if that is of importance to you. We preferred to go out to some of the local restaurants for breakfast instead. The room was very spacious and very clean and without blemish that we could see. King bed had a pillow top mattress of some sort because you sank down into it and were comfortably asleep in no time. The Inn is located just across the street from a public access point for Crystal Beach. It took maybe a minute to walk and be on the snow white sugar sand. We have been to Mexico, and the blue clear water here can't be beat. The Inn has a very nice terraced two level swimming pool and hot tub with a waterfall from the upper to lower level of the pool. The staff was so gracious and friendly. We are definitely going to be returning to the Beachside Inn in the future. It is a great relaxing getaway.

Girls in the front office (Jessica & Peggy) were super friendly and accommodating! We finally got to bring our dog with us on vacation. I was afraid the rooms for pet owners would smell like dogs or not be as nice, but we were pleasantly surprised! Room had a microwave and small fridge, small table and dvd player. The hotel is a stone's throw from the beach which was a big plus. There is a lovely coffee shop here with friendly folks and a yummy restaurant right upstairs (Camille's). I would definitely recommend this place!

Overall this hotel was a good choice for our small beach wedding ceremony and reception. We had our wedding on the beach access across the street from the Inn and our reception at Camille's. The food was amazing! All our guests were pleased with their meals. The manager Chris was very accommodating and helpful too.

My only real complaint was the room location they gave us. It was between the office and a loud group of teenagers staying in the room next to us. You would think they would have thought ahead since we reserved our room and wedding there months in advance and given us the best room they had. Also, when I called the front office to ask to have our room cleaned the receptionist said OK but then no one ever came so I had to go get fresh towels myself from the office. We only stayed two nights but upon leaving we realized on the card hanging on the door you have to flip it to let the maid know you want your room cleaned. Out of all the many hotels I have stayed in this is the only one where you have to ask for cleaning service. The floors were really dirty too, even on the first day we arrived, I think that it would be best if they get area rugs for the rooms to trap some of the dirt. The bed was really comfy.

Overall the location is amazing, the kayak/bike rental shop is a great feature, the staff is nice and food at the restaurant and cafe is great. I would recommend the Beachside Inn. They just need to work a little on their "polish."

Room Tip: Request a room far from the office.

I hesitate to share how special this Inn is for fear it will be discovered by the masses....all I can say is Beachside Inn is quaint, a rare find for the price. It is a small inn, conveniently located within walking distance to the beach. The housekeeping is outstanding as is the staff. We will be returning soon!

Room Tip: While the rooms are comfortable for sleeping, there is no ocean view and there are no sofas or comfo...

We just had a quick nights stay here. The room was lovely and charming, very large with nice decor and furniture. It's a small motel, older, but with lots of charm. The pool area was a little dirty around the steps and pool (cigarette butts, sand, etc), but really neat because it had 2 tiers. The room was really super clean except the edges of things. The only real problems we had with the room were: they need to clean better around the edges of things-bathroom sink in the corners had a lot of small hair and dust, the window seal and edge of curtain had lots of dust bunnies, the bed pillows are super stuffed and uncomfortable for the neck and the bed squeeked when you moved. The bed was very soft though and comfortable. The lady who checked us in was very nice and helpful. She was fun to talk to. The beach is across the street with public access. You can just walk over. There's a really cute little restaurant under the pool area where you get a free muffin and drink for breakfast. REALLY GOOD! We didn't try the open evening only restaurant upstairs. We went to the Crab Trap Restaurant down the road (really good). Anyway, we would stay in this hotel again in a heartbeat! (Just wipe the sink down) lol.

Room Tip: If you stay in the lower level rooms, you can park right outside your door! Hooray!
