Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Beachside Inn was great. The location was perfect. Loved that it was pet friendly. Kellie, in the front office, had such a great personality she was friendly and helpful. The room was very nice and a great size. The property was kept very clean. Enjoyed our visit and will definitely be back!!!

Our last stay at the Beachside Inn was the end of May the start of June 2014, so just a few weeks ago. We got married on Crystal Beach just across the street. The Beachside Inn is pretty much our 2nd home. We have stayed 6 to 7 times I think..heck I have lost count. They accommodated our friends and family too for the wedding weekend..10 rooms total they let us rent out. Peggy and Kellie who work the front desk are the absolute best people you will ever meet. When they let us check in our room they had all types of snacks for us, treats for our dog Lola and cups, wine and a sand bucket with a heart and our names in it. What a personal touch and a great surprise it was. The Team at the Café treated us like we were the royal family the entire time we were there.

We had breakfast, lunch, and dinner there most of our stay there..the food is great and fresh every day..fresh fruit juices which are made while you wait. I don’t know what more to say about the Beachside Inn I mean we have stayed there so much that should say it all. Not to mention it is located on Crystal Beach and in my opinion is one of the nicest beaches on the coast. No worries we will be back probably about in a month or so. Give this place a shot…just stay 1 night…I bet you will stay there again

Room Tip: Honest the upstairs and downstairs rooms all face the same direction and all are the same size as fa...

From ease of getting there to quality of room, staff, beach distance and pool you will not go wrong staying here. We have stayed here multiple times and will continue to do so, Staff is always friendly and will go to great lengths to make sure you have everything you need. Can't wait to make another trip!

If you've tried finding a motel for a few nights in the heart of Destin "condo-land" you know of difficult it is. My wife and I wanted this area because it is much more quiet and laid back than the typical beach area. The property is well-maintained and you can't ask for it to be more conveniently located. We were worried that our room was located next to the upstairs restaurant, but as promised, all was quiet by 11:00 at night. The street side cafe is a go-to spot for smoothies, icy drinks and sandwiches.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced, conveniently located and well kept motel in the quiet part of Destin, this is a great spot!

Start with a superb location - right across the street from the public beach access - add a charming room with a big comfortable bed, all very clean, and then sprinkle with southern hospitality and the result is the Beachside Inn. This is not a modern, sterile hotel nor a bed and breakfast. It is an old fashioned motel with modern conveniences that's laid back and perfect for this location in Destin. People are walking the streets at all hours, there's a bike rental place right in the same building, a sidewalk cafe where you can have coffee and see the gulf and an excellent restaurant. The staff is outstanding - friendly and helpful. Our room was cleaned every day, fresh towels and coffee were refreshed, internet worked, flat panel TV worked well. It's pet friendly which is very important to us. Where we stay is an important part of any of our vacations. We like luxurious 5 star hotels when we're in the major cities in Europe, B & Bs when traveling the countryside like Ireland, and now this charming motel in a beach town like Destin. The only downside is the parking as the restaurant and motel share the same facilities.

The location of Beachside Inn offers a more peaceful setting for a motel than the highway in Destin. Across the street from beach access, we were able to take beach walks as well as use the wonderful walking path along the street. Convenient biycle rental, cafe and a restaurant allowed us to park and walk instead of fighting traffic. The furnishings are modest. The bed is excellent and the shower nicely redone with good pressure and plentiful hot water. The a/c was very good, not too noisy. As for being a bed and breakfast, that is a bit of a stretch. A large loaf of very yummy bread was in the room when we checked in as were coffee supplies. However, the supplies were not replenished daily. The desk did accomodate us when we asked for coffee supplies for the second day. The lobby has coffee and pieces of the bread but not a continental breakfast. The front desk is manned for regular office hours, not open early or late. The staff are very pleasant and cheerful. Parking is shared with the restaurant, so before 9 it can be crowded in lthe evenings. The weather was cool so we did not swim, but we did sit on the pool patio and enjoyed the sun. The pool deck is elevated offering good privacy. The property was adequate for a two night stay, but I would choose somewhere else for any longer.

I called to book and was pleasantly surprised when I spoke with someone on site. I believe I spoke with Kellie the first time. I made several calls afterwards and every time I was more certain that I had made the right choice for our Destin stay. The staff was extremely friendly and willing to help in any way. When we (myself and 3 teens) walked through the door we all were VERY pleasantly surprised at how nice the rooms were and how clean they smelled! The furnishings, the linens (which we wanted to take home with us) were above expectations. We were even treated to a loaf of delicious breakfast bread. One day I was in the room working when the room was being cleaned. The gentleman and lady (they were a married couple) were quick and thorough. They were very hospitable and friendly. The room next door was occupied by a family and their dog Dexter. Dexter didn't like being alone but the staff was very attentive to seeing that his barking did not disturb the guests (as were his owners). The only thing I know of that could have been better was the internet service. Throughout the stay it was sporadic as it would come and go but even with that we will definitely be back! The pools and the hot tub were beautiful. The walk to the beach was very insignificant. I recommend this to anyone that wants a nice, reputable, clean and friendly environment for their stay.
