“Nice!”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

I booked this hotel using my Marriott Rewards points for a family vacation after noticing that it is located across the street from Henderson Beach State Park. As other reviewers have noted, this hotel is newly remodeled and was formerly a Comfort Inn. Everything about the hotel seems new. The staff was very attentive to all of our needs and couldn't be any more friendly and professional. Even the groundskeeper who was busy cleaning the parking lot as we were loading up the vehicle to go home, took time out to help move our bikes from the bike rack to the truck without being asked. We enjoyed the location convenient to the beach and the indoor and outdoor pools were also nice. Would definitely recommend to others.

This hotel is beautiful. Very clean. The staff is friendly and will help in anyway they can to make the stay great. The hotel manager is very caring. Breakfast is good. Overall it was a quiet place to stay even though they were booked. We were there 5 nights. Walking distance to the beach. Good location for shopping and food. I will stay here again for sure!

Room Tip: King suites have a pull out sofa bed... very small. Also bathroom is in the master bedroom off by it...

We went on a vacation to Destin for the first time and chose this hotel because it was across from the beach and seemed to be in the middle of the city itself. Our arrival was early but Ashleigh was so great and checked us in anyway. When we told her it was our first time in Destin she offered her local recommendations of restaurants, activities and even maps to places! She even gave our son a free frisbee when he started to get fussy, which as a mom free toys are worth their weight in gold. We also met Corey during our stay who was just as friendly. He seemed to know a great deal about the area and even advised us of current weather and traffic conditions. I really do think a staff can make or break a hotel and this hotel will treat you like family. As far as the rooms go, they were always clean and the beds were so comfortable! The AC unit does hum, but it surely wasn't loud enough to bother us and let's face it - this is a hotel where each room will have a separate unit in it and they're not going to be perfectly silent. We had such a great experience with this hotel and we will be going back before the summer is over!

Room Tip: They have balcony rooms on the front of the hotel that look out to the ocean... I can only imagine h...

this is the former comfort inn .has been redone as a brand new Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott.it actually feels more like a SpringHill Suites than a Fairfield. the breakfast is very different , much more involved than you would expect.great location in the heart of destin, quiet surroundings.very close to Wal-Mart (across parking lot) and shopping. definitely recommend it

We generally stay at Marriott properties when we travel. I used free night certificates for two nights here and paid for the third night. The service was very good. I was particularly impressed by the fact that the young lady at the desk remembered my name and greeted me by name every time she saw me in the lobby. The free breakfast was good and there were enough servers to keep the food filled. The comments about the A/C units were spot on. The controller on the wall clicks (loudly) to signal the unit to turn on and clicks again to turn the unit off. It cycles loudly and regularly all the time. It bothered my husband more than it did me.

I like to book at Fairfield Inn and Suites and Residence Inns because they both offer rooms that have a living area with a sleeper sofa and a private bedroom. This allows our family to travel together and yet have room to spread out (not to mention 2 TVs!). We decided on this hotel because we read that the Henderson Beach State Park was excellent and that it is literally just across the road. We have not been disappointed. In fact, we asked to extend our stay one more night and though the King Suites were booked, they found us a double Queen room and allowed us to move in early so that we didn't have to pack up and check back in after 4pm. Every staff member has been friendly and everyone has treated us very well. We're planning a return trip!

Room Tip: Elevators are in the middle. The King suites are best for families. There are balcony suites, but th...

I only write reviews when my stay is either exceptionally good or exceptionally bad.

A/c units was EXTREMELY loud. The fan can NOT be turned off. So, it blows all the time. It blows warm air from outside and cold air when a/c kicks in (after the room was warmed up enough). This cycle is repeated every 5 minutes. This is idiocy to warm the room first and than to cool it down.
The standard room is no bigger than a shoe box. it used to be a comfort inn. It needed to stay a comfort inn and not Marriott. Does not deserve to carry Marriott brand.
Will never return!

Room Tip: may be if you get an upgraded room you will have a better experience.
