“OK, nice view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2009

We stayed 1 night in a std dbl room. It was clean and adequet, but kinda old. The hotel is nonsmoking. Good location near tons of restaurants, on the harbor.

I got the impression that it's a family run business and the owners are slowly refurbishing the place. Some things done, others not. OK for 1 or 2 nights.

They accepted our well mannered pets and I truly appreciate that. Staff was extremely nice and helpful.

Stayed July 2009, traveled with family

This hotel is right on the bay providing a beautiful view if you get a room on the bay side. Check-in was smooth and friendly. The owner even called us and personally invited my wife and I on a ride on his boat to show us around the bay. The room was clean and serviced each day (we would always leave the service room hanger on the door when we left). The hotel provided us a bottle of wine as a gift to celebrate our honeymoon. The hotel was built in the 70s but couldn't ask for better service and hospitality.

When we first arrived we got started on a somewhat sour note as the on line booking was incorrect. My first thought was, "Oh no! This is not how I wanted my vacation to start out." However, after some debate and confusion our needs were definitely met. Great sunset views, clean room and service, great continental breakfast. I highly recommend!

The entrance to the hotel was horrible. Parking lot was busted up macadam. The lobby and breakfast room were fine. Good variety of food. The staff was helpful. We told the maid to wait until we returned from breakfast before cleaning the room and she never did anything. No beds made, no towels. We had to call the desk to get a new supply of towels. The bathroom was a joke! Only a tub and comode, but you had to practically sit on the comode in order to close the door. For the price you pay, it was definately not worth it. Would not stay there again. Also, room above us was extremely nosy each morning around 2:00. Told the staff, but nothing was done.

We stayed at this roach-infested motel for 2 days. When we arrived, we received the wrong room, and the front desk attendant went to check and make sure we had the right room. Even after she checked the room to make sure it was correct and it wasn't, she said that it was. Well, it was not what we confirmed on the phone 2 months prior to our trip and she said that "NO ROOMS ARE GUARANTEED". What is a confirmation for and why did they hold our credit card for 2 months? That, to me, is a guarantee.
False advertisement is what it is, to a TEE!!
After we checked out, we found out that instead of re-imbursing us for some of our troubles, we were charged the re-imbursement fee and then I was charged a fee on top of that from my credit card company for going over my limit, thanks to these fine people at (THE INN).
I will never stay anywhere close to this place again and it is all because of a lousy piece of crap that worked the front desk on the day of check-in. Destin is my home but they have made it Very Difficult for me to EVER stay in DESTIN AGAIN. All of the staff should be fired. No wonder all of the foreigners have taken over 3/4 of the hotel industry. At least they know what they are doing.

You get what you pay for cheap, cheap and nasty.1960's model that has never been remodeled. Stain beds, dog pee on the carpets and bugs. Pay a little more and move up to at least a hampton inn or fairfield inn .

STAY AWAY!! There is NO WAY this is a 3 start hotel! OMG!! We left becuase it was so BAD!! We didn't care that lost money. You won't believe your eyes! Doesn't look anything like the photos! The sliding glass door wouldn't open nor would it close, It stayed open 1" and the water had dead fish floating in it. This was worse than a 1 star. I'm not kidding. The phone didn't work, it was filthy, there was dirt on everything, I can just imaging what was crawling in there! Horrible! The main floor women bathroom was missing a door so they put up a shower curtain. The handle was missing on the other door so someone added a screw.
The staff could care less when we asked if all the rooms were as bad they said everyone has different opinions of what is nice and laughed at us. Not to mention the barbells in the girls nose and ears were real nice too.
Save your money go down the street to the Marriott. It's $20 more and it's really nice.
This place will give you nightmares!

I'm not using Bookit anymore they have given me more lemons!! EUWWWWW!
