“Overall great stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

My family and I really enjoyed staying here for 3 nights. For the price and location in relation to the beach, you can't beat it. Walking distance to a beautiful beach. We had an issue with noise really late at night and the front desk handled it promptly so that our children wouldn't wake. Would have loved to see a hot tub and more variety at the breakfast bar (maybe yogurt, fresh fruit such as bananas or apples, scrambled eggs...a little more protein). Overall, we both agreed that we will be using the hotel from now on for our vacations. Can't wait to see the renovations completed when we come back in a year.

Check In-Smooth until i got to the room- I was assigned a room with remodeling supplies in it; had to go back to front desk to get reassigned a new room-- guess what- no more king beds available. Strike One
Staying 3 Days for business- Internet connection worked less then half the time- Strike Two
Even though the hotel rooms seemed renewed with New Paint & Carpet- they put the old VERY DIRTY tables, chairs, and other furniture back in the room.
i left a pair of work shoes in the room- I called 7 different days at different times spoke with 3 different people - each time I was told that the housekeeper for the room I was in -- was gone for the day, was not in that day, had already left for the day & i was promised someone would call me back-- Have not heard back from they yet! Strike Three

This is an older 5 story hotel right across the street from the beach. It is going to be less expensive than those right on the beach of course. It is worth every penny you will pay.
The owners are really fixing up the place, when I was there the lobby was undergoing renovation. All the rooms have been redecorated and updated.

They have the usual free continental breakfast.

Good pool, nice place to relax.

I highly recommend this for those of us that do not what to pay for added luxury that you may not want or use or need.

The owners are very nice and very accommodating.

This place is great! The view from outside may make you think otherwise, but if you're looking for a affordable, yet decent place to stay, this is it! This place has great service, clean room, pool, hot tub, steam room, free continental breakfast, microwave, refrigerator, and Cable TV. The only flaw is that my wife and I woke up several times during the night because of people chattering in the hallway. It was as if the doors were left opened; even footsteps were heard clearly during the night, and I'm a deep sleeper! If they could make the doors soundproof, this place would be my top budget choice to stay.

We were going to Destin with our extended family for Labor Day weekend, but decided to go on a day early. We just needed somewhere for one night until we could check in at our condo. I was tickled to find such a great rate so close to a holiday weekend. My husband LOVES to fish, and this place is right across the street from the Okaloosa Island fishing pier. It was perfect for us. We stayed on the 1st floor. The room was very clean, really big, had a kingsize bed, and a mini fridge. My husband enjoyed the pier the next morning while I did a couple miles on the treadmill. The free breakfast was great too!! Thanks SO much for such a nice stay!! We will definitley be back!
