“Great little Hotel”
Reviewed 14 September 2008

My husband and I stayed at the Inn on Destin Harbor. We had a great stay. The Concierge service made our stay so wonderful. The ladies at the desk made sure we got to eat at great restaurants, go to the best public access beach and the best dolphin cruise. We loved this hotel and didn't want to leave. It has 4-star service at a 2-star price. We will absolutely go back to the Inn on Destin Harbor.

We wanted to be on the water for our family getaway so that we could watch to boats, etc. We had stayed in Destin before and loved the area but not at this location. Everything was so wonderful about our stay!! From being greeted with champagne and chocolate chip cookies (something for everyone) on Friday until our checkout on Monday we had the most fantastic service possible from all of the hotel employees. Everyone there wanted to meet our every need and do it in a cheerful way! The rooms were lovely and the view from the balcony was amazing! The location was great for us because our older children, ages 20 and 19, could exercise nearby. We love the docks area and AJ's for eating and relaxing. The breakfast every morning was great, the muffins delicious and the coffee all day was a nice touch because if you wanted just a cup at night it was there! We all agreed that we would love to do this again when our schedules allow because we just fell in love with this hotel. Why stay anywhere else?

WOW!!! I can't say enough! After evacuating from LA, (with 3 cranky kids and a frazzled dog) we were so lucky to find Inn on Destin Harbor. From check in to check out, everything was perfect. The receptionist was awesome. She went above and beyond the call of duty to be sure we were comfortable. (Excellent Customer Servivce !) The owner was also great! A "Native New Orleanian" , I think...true hospitality! Good Continental Breakfast and a breathtaking view of the Harbor. Will positively stay with them again! (But hopefully not because of a hurricane.)

The little sand beach and the swimming pool was very nice, we really enjoyed it very much! I enjoyed the bayview from the room too. There was a firework that night. We can watch the firework on the balcony, which is very nice. But it is not as close to the nice beach as I thought. However, since we decided our trip to Destin in a hurry, I think this is a still a good deal! And I enjoy this is a local hotel too:)

If you can plan your trip long time ago and there are a bunch of people, try those resorts with real beach. However, this place is good enough for a romantic trip!

We arrived to a hotel that wasn't so pretty on the outside and we were quite early and knew we wouldn't probably be able to check -in any earlier than 3pm but we thought we would take a chance. We gave Justin our number to call us if our room would possibly be ready but we never received a call so we just enjoyed shopping and eating at Destin Commons. When we arrived at 3:05pm to check-in we were given our key to our room and we walked in to find a man standing in the window cleaning. We weren't quite sure if that was paint all over the balcony door but we were certain there was paint all over the sofa and the floor. I told him to go ahead and finish what he was doing and we would come back once he's done. I left with the intentions that the room would be sparkling once we returned. We began to take our tour around the hotel to see the view, the pool, and the so called private beach......After about 30 mins. we went back to our room to find that there was not much changes to the room as far as cleaning goes and there was still paint all over the room. I called the front desk and spoke with Holly and she quickly moved us to another room. She did explain they had to paint the ceiling but I didn't understand why they would put us in that room and not know that it wasn't ready. By the way I am pregnant so I didn't need to be in a room with fresh paint anyway. I was satisfied with the room we were changed to but the bathrooms are so small it's unreal!!! The rooms are not cheap (220.00 w/tax) but you are paying for the view. The view is simply beautiful if you choose waterfront. The city view rooms I wouldn't dare go for but I wouldn't stay here again.

  • Disliked — The hotel was very outdated and I had to go to the front desk to pick up towels the next morning.

My wife and I stayed at the Inn from 6/21 to 6/28/2008. We've stayed here before but it had been a couple years. There have been steady improvements to the lobby, pool area, and rooms. We selected this hotel because of its location - dive shops, restaurants/bars, and other attractions are all within easy walking distance and it has a great view of Destin harbor. Our main level harbor view room was well furnished but could use a little maintenance - the sliding glass door to the balcony did not seal well and the A/C unit was a little noisy. The beds were comfortable; the refrigerator, TV, and bath fixtures all worked fine. The bathroom is small but it would be difficult to remodel because of the layout/construction. The large balcony with table and chairs had a fantastic view of the harbor. It was perfect for drying dive gear, watching for dolphins in the harbor early in the morning, watching the fireworks on Thursday evenings, sunsets, and relaxing. The small beach area has tables, chairs, and umbrellas. The pool area was clean and had lounge chairs and a nicely furnished covered area. The free breakfast in the mornings had a good selection of juice, coffee, milk, bagels, muffins, danish, and cereal.
Suggested improvements include the addition of internet access (wired or wireless) and microwaves in the rooms.
We did have an issue when attempting to book directly with the front desk but we discussed this with the manager (Justin) when we arrived and he assured us the problem employee was no longer there.
In summary, while the Inn may not fit everyone's needs, it works well for us when we visit Destin for a scuba vacation and we will return in the near future.

We decided at the last minute to stay in Destin rather than drive home. Walked in and booked a waterfront room at a decent price. Loved the view of the harbor and the easy walk to restaurants. Room was clean, quiet, and desk staff friendly. Surprised to be offered sparkling wine in the lobby at check-in. Only complaint was my usual one- coffee weeeeeeak both in the room and at the breakfast. Suggest you bring your own if you care about a good cup in the morning.

Stayed January 2008
