My wife and I did a little 2 nighter this past weekend and has been our 4th time there this year and our 12th since 2008. I know it sounds cliche but Henderson Park Inn (or HPI, or Henny P's as we call it) is truly our home away from home. The staff: Tamee, Natalie (Red), Natalie (Blonde), Amber, Nick, Lance, Betty, Wade, Chef Greg (breakfast guy) and the ones I forgot to mention are a major reason why we keep coming back. It is hard to put into words but Henny P's is a state of mind or a place of being, not a destination. My wife and I consider ourselves beach lovers and for the most part are the only type of vacations we take. We have been to Maui, Aruba, Cancun, The Bahamas, South Beach, Marco Island, Key West, Palm Beach, Siesta Key, and keep coming back to HPI because of the above people I just mentioned.

The location next to the park is unbeatable. Happy Hour at The Tiki Bar is complimentary and we often see familiar faces in the clientele that keep coming back like we do. Stocked fridges with bottled water and candy bars can't be beat. Chef Greg makes the best breakfast in the morning which is also included.

Nick is the bomb...he works at Beachwalk and makes the best "Black Raspberry" Martini's. The Kung Pao Shrimp is to die for and Wifey loves the Crabmeat Springrolls.

I can't say enough about the staff and we will see you guys in May....(or maybe sooner.... :)

Room Tip: The Executive Suites in the east building on the second floor (bigger balcony) are my fav

I like the "Henny P" nickname! Thank you for all the kinds words you said about our staff and property. We really do try to be that "home away from home." We hope to see you again soon!

My wife and I have a condo in Destin, FL and love to stay in the area. We were recently traveling there, but our condo was rented at the time to someone else, so we decided to stay and Hendersong Park Inn on the recommendation of some friends. We were totally blown away! It had the feeling of a great bed & breakfast, except right on the beach. The room we had was HUGE, the bed was fantastic, the free candy bars in the fridge were an excellent touch and the staff was SO FRIENDLY. Even the food was great, with a omelet station breakfast included with your stay and the excellent and top quality dinner dining (was expensive, but food and service were top notch... try the fresh catch!). We loved this place.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Honeymoon" Suite.... downside was no direct view of the water.... upside was the room was HUGE and NICE.

The Henderson Park Inn has become a traditional hotspot for my husband and I. We've been two times and plan on going back every year...here's why: included in the price of your room (we always stay in the Honeymoon Suite as it's quiet and huge with a large flatscreen TV, fireplace, wet bar and frig. and a huge king sized bed) you receive a full-blown custom breakfast every morning cooked by the inn's chef, cookies in the afternoon, complimentary candy bars and cold sodas and bottled water all day long, cocktail hour under the Tiki bar every night which includes not only beer and wine but several other beachy cocktails. The Beach Walk cafe serves up the best steak and lobster we have ever eaten! Every day you are given a "boxed lunch" that you choose from a large menu the night before. Trust me, this is not your typical box lunch. This hotel has its own private beach...no one under 25 yrs. is allowed in the hotel so it's a quiet, peaceful setting...your beach umbrella and chairs are set up for you every morning on the sugary white beach. Big fluffy towels are at your disposal every day for soaking up the sun. Every year we go we meet new or return customers vacationing there...we make new friends every year. Here's the other thing...there's no reason to leave the premises...everything you need is there...and when we go to the beach...we STAY on the beach...even though there's plenty of shopping and other restaurants close by.

Words cannot express how Awesome this Place is. We went there for our Honey Moon in beginning of October 2012. First of All We left a Rainy Georgia, but as soon as we got to the Panama City/Destin Florida Line it was like the skies had opened up and we were on our way to Heaven. I was so excited, that I made up a song and dance and sang it the whole time we were there about Chillin on the Beach! Chillin on the Beach! We stopped at a Dollar General to pick up some nick nacks and My Goodness that has to have been the nicest and Cleanest Dollar General I have ever seen. Anyways, finally we were on our way to Destin and the Henderson Park Inn. When We arrived it was Love at first sight. We were treated like royalty. Awesome Room w/ B-E-A-Utiful Coastlne Views, we requested Breakfast in Bed (Which was Delicious by the way), All-In-Clusive snacks (Candy bars, Bottled Water, Sodas etc.) Delicious Lunch w/ cookies, Lemonade and Fruit, All the Sights and Sounds, Clear Water, Beach Chairs w/ Umbrellas All the Attractions Sights and Sounds, Bells and Whistles! AAAAAAH! WE CAN'T TAKE IT! WE CAN'T TAKE IT! WE CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK AGAIN. Not one day goes by where we don't talk about Destin. And a Great Thanks to the Staff at Henderson Park Inn you Guys are Beyond Awesome! Thank you for Making our Honey Moon a Very Memorable One.

We just happened on the Henderson Park Inn driving along the coast, and what a gem! We checked in for one night, ended up staying 2 nights... left for Pensacola area, but had to come back for 2 more nights because it was so fantastic! Everything was amazing, from the friendly staff, private decks with gulf view, to wine and grapes on arrival. The beach and water was beautiful...got some great body surfing in. Full breakfast including omelets made to order every morning was outstanding, and happy hour at the "tiki bar" was very fun. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and will certainly be back!
