5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Residence Inn at Sandestin is fabulous. Not only did you get a extremely great breakfast but on Tues & Wed evenings they prepared dinner and beer & wine from 6 to 7. Staff was really great. Close to shopping and restaurants. Perfect ;)

This is a very nice hotel located on the Grand Boulevard with a nice litte mall plaza and great restaurants nearby. The staff was very accomodating with requests. Staying here will also give access to the Sandestin Resort Community Area. Unless, you ride a motorcycle, which is prohibited on the resort property. We had already looked at a condo here, so we knew this ahead of time, and it wasn't a problem for us. (We were on a bike).

There are two things that kept me from giving this a top rating. First, our room on the first floor of the hotel was nice enough, but the road noise was horrible. It sits right off the side of Hwy 98 in Destin and the cars pass constantly, but there is nothing to block any noise. I didn't request a different room, because half of the rooms face the highway. Not sure this can be fixed. The only other item that wasn't quite up to our needs was the morning "included" breakfast. There was plenty of food, but there aren't very many healthy options. There were apples and bananas. At the previous Residence Inn at which we stayed the previous night, there was also some cantalope available.

Otherwise, this was a great location and nice hotel. Just ask for a room on the backside of the property.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the back side away from the road.

Rooms and location was great. Close to shopping and near enough for a quick ride to Seaside.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Rooms were decorated nicely and well appointed for the value.
Breakfast was on the weak side, not much fresh fruit and oatmeal was mush. The waffles were delicious however!

Room Tip: request poolside, not on busy road

Location was great. Hotel was clean and staff was friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was a treat, making your own waffles is never a bad thing. Outside common areas showing some deterioration in spots. Overall good value and convenient to everything.

Room Tip: Be sure not to get a room facing HWY 98. Busy, noisy all night and day!

We stayed here for a weekend and it was very nice, clean and awesome location. It's right in the thick of things and in walking distance to restaurants and shops. I definitely would stay here again on my next visit to San Destin. Though I was here about 2 yrs ago it was still memorable.

We stayed at this hotel on a recent spring break trip. The location is great very convenient to shopping and restaurants and not far from the beach. After reading the other reviews, (I thought ) I requested a room on a higher floor and away from the elevators. Upon check in we were given a room on the 2nd floor near the elevator, so i requested another room which we got on the first floor. Apparently the hotels puts guests who are traveling with their pets on the 1st and 2nd floor. I assumed that rooms that had animals residing there would be designated solely for customers traveling with their pets, that is not the case. Well 2 days later after we realized our room had a dog in it on the couch (there was pet hair everywhere) we moved to another room. Watery eyes and scratchy throat seemed to clear up eventually. Manager did send up a bottle of White Zinfandel, I'm a wine drinker and that's not my cup of tea but its the thought that counts.

Breakfast was average. We stayed at a Residence Inn in Ft Myers and really liked their breakfast but this one was just average, didn't think there would be that much of a difference..The pool area could use a bit sprucing up more modern chairs and maybe plants would make it more inviting.

Rooms are very nice but small...And the staff is very nice!

Room Tip: If you are traveling without a pet request a room on the 3rd or 4th floor to ensure a hairless room.

I recently stayed here for 3 nights and it was outstanding. I don't know how a pet friendly hotel is able to keep everything so clean, I did not see a single pet hair anywhere in the room. I was also impressed with the level of service. We switched from a single bedroom to a 2 bedroom suite after the first night, not only did the staff moved our luggage but to my amazement they actually setup the baby's play yard. I have every intention to stay here again next time we make the trip down to Sandestin.
