“Getaway to Destin”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Clean and comfortable lodging with great views of the harbor in Destin. Friendly and accommodating staff and continental breakfast each morning. Adequate parking and close to a number of acceptable dining options. Seafood markets are close by for that package off shrimp you may like to bring home.

Great view overlooking the harbor at Destin. Very friendly staff. Walking distance to many attractions like boat rentals, paddle boards, pirate cruises. There are a lot of restaurants close by and even a great one next door.

Room Tip: the higher the floor the better the view.

Hi, arrived as planned and had booked a more expensive room with king bed and harborview. Brought our small dog, so pet friendly room. Checked in, went to room 302 and had to go back to desk to get windex, tv screen and mirrors was so mucky, couldn't even see the pciture- hair from previous occupant in sofa bed, kitty litter against bad wall, looked like the staff had done once over very quickly with vacuum. Well, no cleaning staff on so we cleaned for about an hour and got the muck off. Housekeeping and call from manager promised the next day. Didn't happen, but what is the absolute worst is that the a/c unit just reeked of dog urine. Didn't notice the first day because we had slider door open, and a/c not really on. Plus room smelled heavily to windex. The next night we used a/c more and the room just reeked. Apparently some dog had marked territory in the vent which was close to the floor. Carpet was vacuumed but needed shampooing badly.Our feet filthy from walking on the carpet. Couldn't even breathe in the room for the smell much less sleep. So checked out the following day, two days early. Girl at desk very apologetic, promised call from manager when he came in, no call, apparently no concern. The view from the balcony is awesome, but we had to clean the balcony first. Place is older, few outlets. our mini-fridge held together with screws at top. It's nice, don't misunderstand, but not clean at all and apparently that "concierge service" promised in the brochure is an absolute crock. No one even cared to call us. Will not return, would not recommend this hotel. Too bad because if clean, it would have been great.

Room Tip: king room, harborview is great, but I'm telling you- it's not clean at all.

This hotel is in a great part of Destin. We were able to walk to a bunch of restaurants, bars and cute shops. We had a room over the harbor. It was a simple room, but it was clean and the view from our balcony was amazing. Definitely worth paying extra for the water view. Waking up on the harbor and looking over the balcony has the feel of waking up on a cruise ship docked at the port. Everyone we talked to at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. Be sure to ask them how to walk to the Harborwalk village by way of the waterfront boardwalk and they will point you in the right direction. We were also excited to discover Friday night is complimentary champagne night. We will be back for sure.

I arrived at this hotel on Friday and the room attendant was still cleaning our room. We got our room key 30 minutes after check in time and there was a dirty sock laying on the bed. The room was really dingy and smelled really bad. The sliding glass door was ridiculously loud when opened. The furniture was falling apart. We had to use the heater at night and it smelled like a urinal. The "private" beach was covered in cigarette butts. They consider themselves to be a boutique hotel. I'm not sure how this is or has ever been considered a boutique hotel.

The Inn on Destin Harbor is a great deal for Destin - fantastic location, amazing views, and super easy to find. We watched the sunset from our balcony, and were blown away by the incredible view. The are restaurants and paddle board rentals right next door, and you are within easy walking distance of the entire harborwalk / boardwalk area. The building is a little older, yes, but it's been nicely maintained, and the lobby and pool area are spotless. This is a family owned and managed business, so I feel good about staying here and supporting the local community. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Definitely opt for the Harbor View.

The Harbor View rooms have a beautiful view and this carries over to the lounge/eating area as well. While our room was spacious and airy (all rooms have balconies), I found the bathroom area extremely small. The breakfast was quite adequate, but the area became congested if too many people were eating at the same time. The open staircase to all the floors was very welcoming and conducive to taking the stairs rather than the elevator. Staff members were all very pleasant and helpful. It was a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Fabulous view from water side.
