Right on the beach for perfect sunset and sunrises in the fall. Dolphins even swam by in the mornings, playing close to the beach. Great walking on the beach as well for that morning exercise! Nice to have a breakfast too!

Good breakfast and service of the staff. Rooms are dated but that was the only drawback. Internet and view of water were both great! Bed was comfy and wife had no complaints. It does the job especially for the location and price. I think it meets expectations.

I would recommend it to anybody! The rates were affordable for the time of the year. It was directly on the beach. I also love that it had an outside and inside entrance. The breasfast was awesome and fulfilling.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly front desk representative! He was also kind enough to move me to a room with an ocean view, which was an added bonus considering I was traveling alone. The hotel itself isn't overflowing with updates, but it's certainly clean and fits the beachy look altogether! A short walk out the back... More

A great retro stay. The view from our balcony was amazing. Just steps away from the beach. Amazing umbrella and chairs for white sandy beach enjoyment. This is a real jewel located very close to good eats and and Destin without all the mob of people. Breakfast was adequate with a good variety. The shower had wonderfully HOT water with... More

This hotel is just a very short walk from the back of the hotel. The beach is a sugary soft white sandy beach and what even makes it better is that the hotel provides beach chairs and umbrella free. Yes free. Their is also a small pool located between the hotel and the beach. We stayed in a nicely beachy... More

The front desk was very accommodating, we were three hours early for our check in time and they already had our room ready for us, the room was very clean with a beautiful view of the Gulf and the white sand beach. They also have a nice heated pool for the cooler evenings and they provide you with complimentary beach... More

Awesome beachfront hotel amongst the many condos. Staff was outstanding, friendly and very attentive. Room was clean and comfortable with a fridge and microwave. Free breakfast was better than expected. Pool area was clean with quite a few lounge chairs. There is an outdoor bar (I believe they said that it was open seasonally) as well as a small indoor...
