I stayed at this hotel June 28-July 3 and had a good experience overall. The hotel is well-maintained inside (not dated), and basically the same level outside. Every member of the staff I interacted with was kind and professional -- some were downright friendly. The hotel was really full the majority of my stay, so there was a day that cleaning was delayed, but it happened eventually. The beds are pretty standard, nothing fancy. The elevator is slow, take the stairs if you can. There are a few restaurants within walking distance and the ocean is also walking distance (5-8 min in the sun), but even around July 4 there was plenty of parking at the public beach (Calhoun) access nearest this hotel. I would say that the balcony upgrade isn't worth it since your view will be of the parkway and the go kart track next door ("Slow down! Slow down! Slow down when entering the pit!"). However, from inside the room we were NOT able to hear the go karts and we were the closest room to The Track. The free continental breakfast was sufficient. I don't mean that in a bad or good way. I partook everyday and never went away hungry. There was a lady who restocked the whole time. However, they only have one waffle iron and with the crowd that was insufficient. My only complaint was that they wanted to charge us $75 for late checkout, when originally we were eligible for a free night. Now it was my fault that we didn't pre-book that so I'm not holding a grudge about it. And Destin was busy at the time, either way the $75 wasn't worth it to us so we left. (I believe that's the idea.)
Overall, better amenities, staff and atmosphere than other chains at the same price point.
