“Needs a lick of paint”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

The reception area and the rear of the hotel are well maintained, but the room and balcony we were given were slightly grubby and in need of refurbishment. The sliding door to our balcony had no lock, was covered in dirt and didn't actually slide open without lifting it up.

The beds were fairly comfortable and there's a decent selection at breakfast, although quite how the scrambled eggs resembled and tasted like air I'll never quite understand.

Beware that quite a lot of the local bars and restaurants in Destin are closed between January and the start of March. Golf at the local Kelly Plantation is HIGHLY recommended, and the two girls on reception were very friendly and very helpful.

WOW I realize this was a 2 1/2 star hotel; if nothing else I expect for the room to be clean and odor free. We checked in and the room had a bad odor like mildew in it, when you sat on the bed you sunk in the middle, you had to climb out. The bathroom is so tiny you could barely turn around in it. The best thing about this hotel is the view which was very beautiful. Also the management staff was excellent in trying to assist us. They were overbooked and that create just a mess. We called and complained and they actually changed our room to a room with chipped paint all over the balcony and dead bugs in the bathroom. So keep in mind we have just driven from Chicago and are really exhausted. We talk to the manager and he offers to give us a free night and champagne if we stay. Well we figure we would try to deal with the originial room with the odor and the rooms weren't very clean at all. Oh don't let me forgot none of the room have hangers in them. So we proceed to go back to the 1st room, open the balcony door so I am not overwhelmed by the odor-we figure it is only 2 days we will deal with it. Well we get up the next morning (or at least my husband did I didn't sleep at all), and the water is off - we can't shower. OMG I had it - we checked out immediately and went to the Holiday Inn on the Beach - which was very nice and the room smelled wonderful. If the price was $40-$50 ok maybe, but they were asking as high as $149 per night. Give me a break - I would be super pissed had I paid $149 for this room. There are plenty of hotels in Destin that are much better than this. I am sorry management and staff may have been very nice but the hotel should at least be clean.

There was no water shuttle as described in the info for this hotel. And the "private beach" was on the harbor NOT on the Gulf! No microwave in room. Did enjoy the balcony on the harborview which I paid extra for. The pet floor seems to be a scam of sorts as the hotel clerk seems to be on this floor ALOT with paper in hand. This area is not a pet friendly beach area. I suggest Dauphin Island as they do have areas dogs are very welcome on their beaches.

Room Tip: Harborview view rooms are nice and all rooms in this hotel seem to have a balcony.

We stayed there during a weekend getaway. The hotel was very clean and the beds were really comfy! It is located right on Destin harbor within walking distance to many restaurants as well as Harbor Walk Village. We will be staying there again.

I enjoyed a very comfortable stay at the Inn on Destin Harbor the first weekend of October. The room was very comfortable, great views and a lovely breakfast in the morning. I was especially impressed with the great recommendations for the weekend. The front desk informed me of the Destin Seafood Festival and the Seaside Market both were a lot Fun! I will definitely return next year to enjoy Destin at a great value hotel. Thanks!!

Room Tip: Thumbs up for the pet friendly floors!!
