“Great Location at a Good Price”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I've stayed at the Inn on Destin Harbor twice in the last month, once for work, and again for pleasure. I was there only 1 night the first trip on business and 3 nights with my husband on vacation the second. The rooms are very small but clean. You really can't beat the location of this hotel for the price. It is within walking distance of numerous restaurants and the HarborWalk Village. There is a limited free breakfast daily and free champagne on Friday nights. Seems like they are trying for a boutiquey feel, it has a nice lobby area with couches and such overlooking the water which is very nice. It is definitely not a luxury hotel by any means, but if you need a clean, safe, hotel in a great location on the harbor, this is a great place.

Great value for the price! We are regular visitorsw to Destin, 2-3 times a year we go down, usually stay in a condo. This time we did a last minute trip to get away from the cold and stayed at the Inn on Destin Harbor and such a good choice! It is right next door to the Marina Cafe, one of the premiere dining experiences you can have in Destin, and also within walking distance of the Boardwalk on the Harbor.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast bar was well supplied and the cleaning people were available if needed, clean towels and extra coffee were there for the asking. We are not people who expect or want to have a fresh bar of soap every day, or even fresh towels every day and definitely not fresh linen every day! To us that is wasteful and we were very glad they weren't pushy about cleaning everything every day. If we wanted/needed it we just asked for it and it was done well and cheerfully too.
The bathrooms could stand some updating, but everything was clean and the beds were comfortable and for $50 a nite for a room with a Harbor, East Pass, & Gulf view you just can't beat it. We did and will stay there again and we have also recommended the place to our family and friends.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Harbor side have very nice views!!

We enjoyed our stay. To be honest we were little concerned after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor. However we had a good experience. The lady at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful. The room was very clean. The only issue we had was with housekeeping. They did not vacuum the floor or replace the soap. The girl at the front desk readily proved new .

First of all, I tend not to review a location on Trip Advisor unless I am happy with it. With that said, I was a little apprehensive about staying at the Inn on Destin Harbor because of the mixed reviews it had, but the rated were much more affordable than anywhere in Destin and this was a last minute trip. Needless to say, my apprehensions were put to rest.
First this is not a new property, so if you go in expecting that you may be let down. What it is, is an older, well maintained property in the heart of everything. From check in and throughout the stay customer service was excellent, and I was even pleased to receive a follow up email asking how my stay was.
I'll start with my room, we reserved a 2 queen bed "city view" room. Our room was clean and did not have any odd odors that many others seem to have noted on here. Housekeeping was attentive to our room and even arranged my son's toys on the bed while we were out. The bed was comfortable and everyone got good nights sleep. The carpet was clean and actually looked fairly new as did some of the other fixtures in our room. This makes me wonder if there is possibly a room by room update going on which could easily be a reason for mixed reviews. If I had to say anything slightly negative about the room, it would be that the tv was not a flat screen, BUT you are in Destin so is it really that important?
Breakfast. Breakfast was not an overly elaborate spread, but it was more than adequate and we all walked away satisfied each morning. Choices included fruit, yogurt, pastries, muffins, waffles, cereals, grits, bagels, and heat and eat sausage biscuits. There was a variety of juices and the coffee always tasted fresh.
The pool was nice. It was a bit of a hike to get to and from the pool, but it was nicely appointed and clean. The whole family enjoyed the pool, most of all my son who had a blast.
All and all, I was very pleased with the Inn on Destin Harbor. It is not a new property, but for what it is, I felt like it was a great value. I look forward to returning and will recommend to friends who are looking for a reasonably priced stay in Destin.

My boyfriend and I are travelling across the U.S. and have stayed at a number of places ranging in price and quality. The Inn on Destin Harbour is a good quality place at a great price and provides a clean, comfortable location with a great view of the harbour and sunset from your balcony. The staff are extremely friendly and Katarina in particular really made us feel very welcome, going above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. The four seasons it is not, but for the money you pay, with the views we had and excellent staff like Katarina we would definitely recommend it.

Room Tip: Always go for a sea view room.

I usually stay at Hilton Properties because the beds are so comfortable but this place made up for the beds in different ways. First, the front desk ladies were super nice and very helpful. They did everything they could to help with questions about the area. The view was really good, nice pool, harbor front access and activities were right out the back door! If you are looking for luxury, this isn't your place but if you are just looking for a great little place to stay and to be in good hands, this place has got you covered. Crazy little side note here: I suffer from Acid Reflux and woke up in the middle of the night choking! I went to the front desk and asked for milk and the guy went wide open to the back and came out with milk for me. I know that is an "out there" story but it speaks volumes to the way these people treat you! Great place!
