“This is by far the best Inn/Bed&Breakfast on the Emerald Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2012

The friendliness, professionalism, and attention to detail were over the top. My wife and I stayed in the Presidential suit, and it was just that, fit for a president. It's a couples dream. Very romantic, and very secluded. Our stay was in November and the water is crystal clear this time of the year. The temperature was around 75 degrees and the water was tolerable but only a few were brave enough to go in it, and I wasn't passing up the opportunity to soak in the salt water. We will definitely be back again, but be sure to book in advance, and there's only one presidential suite, but I highly suggest it, and the price is very reasonable.

Room Tip: Only one Presidential suite, but from what I saw and heard from other guest, all the rooms are excel...

I spent a couple of nights at the hotel while in Destin for a friends wedding. The staff was courteous at check-in. The breakfast buffet was very good and the staff was always helpful and attentive. The wine and grapes at check-in were very nice after a long drive. I had a second floor room with a nice view of the gulf. My wife has some knee issues and the lack of an elevator was a small issue but could a major one for people with limitations to movement.
My wife went to watch the sunrise on the beach and the staff turned on a propane heater and offered cocoa and coffee and a large blanket. I would strongly suggest that since it is gorgeous.
Overall, it was an excellent weekend at a great inn.

Room Tip: I loved the second floor oceanfront room, but be aware that there is no elevator if movement is imp...

Had a wonderful long weekend at the inn. The staff if great, friendly and helpful. We were outside when a storm hit, and the staff was waiting for everyone with towels so we could dry off. The food is amazing. They have free waters, sodas, candy bars, DVD rentals, and games.

The bed was too high, Mattress was uncomfortable A.C very noisy and the balcony was so small it only was good for one person at a time.to sit out on it. We were in the second building and it was not handy to be a part of the Breakfast or Happy Hour . Room decor is dark and old. Certainly not a 4 or 5 star hotel..

Room Tip: Be sure your reservation is in the Main Bldg. There should be a pool,but there is none.

We just came back from Destin. We researched to find the best fit for us and thought of hotels, condos, etc. We thought going the BandB route was the most romantic. We hit the jackpot with Henderson Park Inn!!!! The room was a little expensive, but it was one of the exclusive rooms, there are different ones, from $150 a night. If you can afford it, get the corner room, it was amazing. Breakfast and lunch are included with the stay as were the unlimited snacks, cookies, lemonade and happy hour. They have a fabulous restaurant on site, and also a million other places to eat within walking distance. The staff is the friendliest, hardest working, go-out-of-their-way incredible. Give them a try, we will definitely go back!!!! They don't have a pool or gym, but who cares!!! lol!!

Room Tip: ask for the corner room. it has uninterrupted sunset views, a perfect balcony and great bed.

The Inn is perfectly located next to the park and is the first place I've ever stayed that long without ever leaving the property. Small enough for excellent personal service, yet provides all of the amenities you would ever want or need. The rooms are perfectly appointed and is a perfect place for adult serenity on the beach. The restaurant is outstanding for dinner, while the Inn provides an excellent cooked to order breakfast buffet as well as great choices for boxed lunches, cookies, and lemonade at mid-day. The rooms and lobby areas provide all the bottled waters, lattes, sodas, and candy bars you can handle. The place is actually a value when you consider the amenities. I'm sure this place has lots of repeat customers and I am already planning a second trip. It's perfect for couples, family get togethers, girls trips, or any other group who wants to spend quality time together in a perfect inn on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Just listening to the waves and looking at the water was entertainment enough.

Room Tip: All of the rooms appear to have good views. There are two buildings, East and West. The West buil...
