URGENT!! An absolute MUST read if you are planning on booking Scenic Gulf Inn & Suites, for even one night!! Upon arrival of checking into a reservation made through Expedia for July 20th, 2014, there was an unofficial ‘note’ scribbled on some paper at the front desk stating “Out of the office, be back soon”. When the front desk person (and only person working the entire hotel) did return ‘JONATHAN’ began screaming and yelling at me, the customer, who was getting ready to shell out close to $200 for one night. He was obviously completely drugged completely out of his mind and on some serious amphetamines by his complete conduct, language and demeanor. I guess that’s where he had been the entire time he was ‘out of the office’, getting high so he could come back and ruin the night of people vacationing in Destin. No DOUBT, has been doing this for quite some time and he knows he can get away with it. These are exact quotes from ‘Jonathan’ upon our checking in to the hotel obviously provoked by the weed, meth and probably everything else in the book that he was on that evening - 1. “You can call back here in two weeks and I promise, I’ll still be working here” 2. “You leather faced *****expletive, what are you..60?” 3. “I don’t know where you come from but we don’t roll like that here in Florida at this hotel” 4. “You steroided out midget” . 5. “You know what, you don’t have a reservation anymore at this hotel, I just cancelled it so good luck going and finding another hotel you 60 year old man”. I then asked for him to call Expedia and he would not even do that saying he would have to hold for 50 minutes. His totally ridiculous and drug induced actions and the Scenic Gulf Inn and Suites Hotel on Hwy 98 and Scenic Gulf Drive in Miramar Beach, Fl (Destin Area hotel) have all been reported to Expedia, Travelocity and all other on-line consumer review forums such as Yelp and Trip Advisor. If the owner of this hotel does not immediately terminate his employee ‘Jonathan’ on the spot, his business has ZERO chance of success because I promise, this review is going to run off thousands and thousands from anyone even looking at this hotel, even for a one night stay out of desperation. Motel 6 looks like a 4 star hotel compared to this absolute dump and the personality and professionalism of the ‘boy’ running the front desk name Jonathan fell in line with exactly all of the reviews and what others have posted on Trip Advisor over the past entire summer of 2014. People don’t take the time out of their busy schedules to write reviews such as this unless they are completely warranted. Not ONE single good review has been posted on this hotel or Jonathan so take EVERYONE’s advice and do NOT even give this place or Jonathan a second look. He was the most unprofessional, insulting, uneducated, rude, crude and foul mouthed little boy that my wife and I had ever seen in a service type industry and hotel. She was in shock and scared for her life witnessing his demonic behavior and the filthy language spewing from his mouth. Every single place and person that we met the entire week in Destin and Miramar were FANTASTIC but Jonathan and this hotel were bad enough apples for the entire city. I plan on calling back every single week just to see how long Jonathan still works there but then again, with as many drugs as he does, he probably won’t be around long to even show up for work..if that’s what you call it. I’ve been all over the world and I’ve NEVER had this bad of a hotel experience or a person as pathetic as Jonathan. He is one of the ROOT causes of this hotel’s continued problems. Protect yourself and your family. STAY AWAY!
