“Amazing service and location”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 via mobile

From the minute you walk into this place you will be amazed. Personal service from a very well trained and happy staff, to thoughtful details of everything that makes a place a home. Right on one of the most beautiful beaches we have found in Florida. All combine to make you promise yourself that you will be back!

We loved everything about our stay at HPI. The location is perfect...close to restaurants and shops but feels like you are secluded. Every staff member was friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed visiting with the breakfast staff. We took advantage of the bikes that are available and rode on the bike path for 14 miles. It was a little chilly while we were there but still warm enough to enjoy the beach. We look forward to coming back next year.

Henderson Park Inn Bed & Breakfast is a hidden gem. After a long day traveling, we were greeted by an upbeat clerk in a tastefully decorated lobby. Although small, it is homey and comfortable. A young man helped us with our luggage and we were shown to our corner King room with fireplace and balcony. It was featured in Southern Living. We had a beautiful view of the beach and ocean. The bed was very comfortable and the room quiet.

The room was beautifully decorated with a couch, desk, great chair with foot rest, and a large screen TV. There was a gas fireplace and ceiling fan. There was a refrigerator and bureau In the entryway. The bathroom was spacious with a Jacuzzi tub and a small shower.

Breakfasts are delicious. Chef Greg Dupas and Chef Lee are busy greeting each patron. Luch orders are taken the night before and are served “box” style. There are games available for guests as well as DVDs.

Chez lounges and umbrellas await you on the pristine beach with its powdered white sand

Room Tip: Ask for a king corner room with fireplace

My wife booked this on-the-beach B&B. Now I owe her even more.

Henderson Park Inn is a classy, comfy, friendly and cared-for bed & breakfast on a quiet stretch of the beach in Destin, where sandpipers and gulls and anglers and beachcombers and gin-clear water all come together.

We arrived three hours before check-in time and were still happily welcomed to our ready executive king suite. Check-in was super simple and we got a quick, personal tour of the main building and how things operate there.

Our room (#212) was in the next building on the 2nd floor. There's an elevator and stairs. A large balcony overlooking the beach with an unobstructed view rounded out this very nicely done, large room with Keurig, Jacuzzi/shower, microwave, fridge, armoire, flat screen TV, artwork, work desk, easy-to-get-on wireless 'net, and great bed. A bottle of wine and grapes were on the bed when we walked in.

The view from the balcony was pretty sweet, set up so we got the sunrise and sunset, although not simultaneously.

At 3:30PM the giant deck attached to the main building is visited by guests after the free drinks until 4:30PM. The dining room serves a great breakfast with omelets and other eggs to order, plus waffles, all sorts of fresh fruit, pastries, potatoes, grits, sausage gravy, bacon, ham, sausage and on and on. The breakfast chef and his team are superb and friendly; the chef uses some of his old family recipes, like for the grits and sausage gravy; he is clearly beloved by returning guests. I personally want to have his children.

Henderson Park Inn makes good picnic lunches for guests, too, all included in the price.

There are beach chairs and umbrellas for guests and lots of big towels, plus free borrow bikes. A fancy coffee machine with coffee, cappuccino, and lattes is there as well. We did not eat in the Beachwalk Cafe this time but will the next.

Finally, the inn is located directly adjacent to Henderson Beach State Park and offers easy access to all the good restaurants, the Harborwalk, etc., including the newly opened Margaritaville a la Jimmy Buffet for all you parrotheads.

We'll be back.

My wife and I stayed @ HPI in early Feb; looking for a quiet, restful get away. We could not have chosen a better spot. The property is near all things "Destin" but it's secluded location ajacent to Henderson State Park affords it a privacy that likely doesn't exist anywhere else in the area. The 2 main buildings are located directly on a very beautiful & private section of beach. Our room was gulfside, 3rd floor in the main building with a stunning view. The room was huge with a king bed and ample bath with whirlpool tub. HPI is an all inclusive property with your nightly rate including a large & very nice breakfast, boxed lunch, free afternoon happy hour, free beverages & snacks plus use of the hotel's bicycles. Use of beach chairs & umbrellas is also included. The hotel is for adults only so not good for families with small children but it is a great stay for couples. The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating plus the resturant on site is one of the top rated ones in the area. If your looking for a place to enjoy the beach and recharge this is it.

My wife gave me (us) a weekend at this place for my birthday. SO nice. Free happy hour, free breakfast and lunch, free beverages and candy 24/7. Private beach with free beach chairs and umbrellas. Access to everywhere. Seems expensive, but when you count all the free stuff, not so bad. Visits there have been offered as a prize on Kelly and Michael. Couldn't recommend it more highly. No pool or fitness center - who cares?
