“A little disappointing.”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

It was just OK. Polyester sheets. A tv so tiny you couldn't see it from the bed. No vent in bathroom/shower. Older...needs paint, carpet and updating.Breakfast was wonderful! Views were fabulous!! Won't go back but neat to experience.

We were guests at Henderson Park Inn from Feb. 21 to Feb. 25, 2012. We chose HPI on the basis of good reviews of other guests posted on Tripadvisor. All of the good things said are true. The inn is located on a beautiful uncrowded stretch of beach. Being at the north boundry of Henderson State Park results in a long stretch of undeveloped park south of the inn. The inn personnel were very helpful and polite. They went out of their way to make sure that inn guests were well taken care of and made to feel welcome.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The facility is excellent, rooms are lovely, the food is so delicious, and best of all - the staff. The reception staff are very accommodating and helpful, the staff in the restaurant are great and the housekeeping staff are great too! The hotel provided breakfast every day, a box lunch, a happy hour, plus bicycles! We would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I have stayed in many bed and breakfast inns over the last several years but have not stayed at an inn that offers the level of service found here. We had heard about this Inn but never had the opportunity to stay....the accomodations are sparkling clean, roomy, beautifully decorated and right on the beach!...initial impression includes fresh flowers, grapes and wine in your room! We were able to see and hear the waves from our bed, which looked out on the water with open terrace doors. The pampering starts at a beautiful breakfast buffet with cooked to order omelets, etc., and progresses through the box lunch you may order and they provide, to afternoon treats and happy hour to follow. Having said all of that, their most important contribution is their personal service and evident desire for your stay to be all it can be...they are gracious in spirit as they are gracious in service. After my huband sustained an injury from a fall on a city sidewalk, we found ourselves having a very different vacation than planned.....and are very thankful for all of the extra assistance the staff provided, whether late at night or during the day. They are all simply the best! And the beaches in Destin are, as always, the most beautiful you will find anywhere.

Room Tip: We loved our suite in the East building, but am doubting there are any rooms that wouldnt be desirab...

Everything I've read about the Henderson is true. I don't need to write another Henderson review about how good the breakfast is and how friendly the staff is because it's already been said over and over, but I'd thought I would add one about their customer service. We recently booked a room at the Henderson and when we found an issue with the bed, they promptly moved us into another room no questions asked! Turns out the bed frame was broken and not reported by the previous occupants. The staff at the Henderson worked tirelessly to ensure our stay was memorable and that all our needs were met. We would definitely stay here again!!

This was the best weekend gettaway ever. The staff was very customer focused and the location is perfect. The food was outstanding. We really enjoyed everything about our trip to Henderson Park Inn!! We will return for sure!!

Room Tip: Ask for a large balcony room when you make your reservation. Our balcony was fantastic.
