Stayed at this property for a quick gateway with family. We didn't have time to rent a home at the beach; so we decide to look for a hotel that will have have the amenities of a home away from home. Although, not a beach front property, this hotel is w/in a close distance to really nice beaches that only locals or people that rent the beach houses go to. This property is located aprox 6-8 miles east from Destin. It is remove from the hustle and bustle of "Downtown Destin" which is nice very quite at night. The staff maintains it very nice, they really want to accommodate your needs (extra towels shampoo, etc). Surrounded by an upscale neighborhood, it feels and look very private. Front desk is gracious enough to refund your cost of access to the Topsail State Park. The Marriott Residence inn brand also offers a complementary hot breakfast, so it gets you going right away, so you can spend more time at the beach. This property also had several restaurants w/in walking distance. We will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: north end rooms are very quite.

Newer Residence Inn directly off Route 98, close to a sister Courtyard. Very nice property, wonderfully landscaped, small pool and exercise area, small basketball/tennis combo court. Rooms are clean, modern, comfortable. We had a two bedroom suite which had 2 baths, 3 TV’s, dining and living areas. If you’re coming for a recreational visit- beaches are 15-20 minutes away but well worth the travel time- pristine sand and water. If you’re a runner/walker, there is a gated community that you are permitted to walk in (2 mins from hotel) which is a really nice 3 mile sidewalked trail around upscale homes and a golf course. Of all the Marriott properties that offer free breakfast, Residence Inns are the best- several hot choices, fresh fruit, etc. They also offer free light dinner typically on Mon and Tues evenings. Several restaurants within walking distance- to one side all there is is an Applebee’s. To the other, is several mid to upscale choices. We tried Triana, superb choice for Italian food that is surprisingly reasonably priced.

Good location...We stayed here because it was close to Sandestin Resort and Seaside, Florida. The breakfast was good, didn't use any of the dinners, pool was very small and didn't use it. Tried to use the gym but they didn't have weights...The bed was short for my 5'8'' frame and the 1 bedroom suite seemed smaller than other ones. Overall, good value, especially if you're just sleeping there and spending most of the day outdoors, which is what we did.

I originally booked the room for 5 nights thinking we would have beach access through the Sandestin Resort. Sometime after I booked it, that changed and I read that we would no longer have access. After trying to find another place with beach access and seeing the high prices we decided to just stick with this hotel since we had a rental car and could get around and explore several beaches. The room was spacious and comfortable and we liked having the kitchen. We bought a few groceries the first night to be able to make quick lunches and/or dinner. We still ate out a lot but it was nice to have the option to eat in the room if we were tired or just didn't want to have to find a place to go. The breakfast was good. Lots of options, although my husband was disappointed that they only had turkey bacon instead of real bacon (he LOVES his bacon!). When I booked the room it allowed me to put in a request for extra towels and a room on a higher floor. I chose both options. When I check in, I also requested a room away from 98 based on reviews I read here. She told me the room was away from the road. However, they gave me a room with no extra towels and on the first floor. It wasn't a big deal but I just found it odd that it would allow me to choose those options but then not provide them. The room was fairly quiet for most of the trip except for about 1 day when there was a yappy dog across the hall. I think he mostly only barked when he was left alone because the barking never occurred at night. Don't get me wrong, we are absolute dog lovers and have 3 of our own (who stayed home). It was just frustrating going to the room after a long day at the beach to rest up before dinner and hearing a small dog barking over and over again. This is why I requested a room on a higher floor but we didn't get it. We ended up spending the majority of the time heading to the beaches, shops and restaurants down 30A. We did go the movie theater next door one evening and it was really convenient. If you're just going to the area to spend all your time on the beach, then it would be better for you to just get a condo/hotel with beach access but if you're willing to drive around and do different things then this hotel would be fine for you.

The positives for this hotel: they allow pets (for a significant charge!), good housekeeping staff and decent breakfast. The negatives: no beach access, poor parking (I was parked in TWICE by other car and an RV, and front desk did nothing about it!), poor workout facility, noisy, VERY POOR CELL PHONE RECEPTION - IMPOSSIBLE ON AT&T!, lots of kids, and you have to PAY to do laundry. Again, the ONLY reason to stay here is if you need a pet friendly hotel. Otherwise, find a condo with beach access so you'll have true Destin experience. Definitely do NOT stay here on business.

The room here was beautiful and a very large room. We had a king size bed and full kitchen, with a fridge, stove, dishwasher, and microwave. There was a couch as well. The hotel itself is very beautiful and the room was very clean. The breakfast they serve is wonderful as well. Lots of choices for everyone, hot and cold choices both! The service was great as well. Everyone smiled and asked how we were doing, whether we were at the front desk or walking down the hall to our room. The location was perfect for us. It was less than a half mile from the resort our friends were getting married at and half the price! The price didn't seem outrageous for our location where we needed to be and the clean, nice hotel that we got. We will definitely be staying there the next time we visit Destin!!!

Room Tip: We got a studio King for 2 of us and it was more than enough room. We were on the second floor towar...
