Reviewed 30 November 2008

We had a very very good time on our 40th anniversary!
We couldn't have had a nicer time
All of the staff was so freindly and nice like family!
We will never forget our trip, from MISSOURI
They even surprised us with a bottle of champaign on ice with
2 goblets
We will always stay there again!

I have stayed with my family at this hotel 2 times now and the first time was during there slow time so they stated that that is the reason that they have nothing as in ammenities. Ammenities being the simple stuff like breakfast. Now there is a difference between an older hotel and a dirty hotel, and from my experiance on the first stay and they second stay it was apparent that the hotel manager did not take pride in his hotel. Now I have worked in a hotel prior to enlisting in the Army and can and will say that appearance is a big part of a hotel chain. Now I am deployed and my wife took my daughter and her parents to stay at the hotel one last time as a "you know maybe it was just a bad experiance lets give it another chance". Now the room was falling apart there was urine stains all over the bathroom, which were not stains it took just a little water and rag to clean. The towel rack above the toilet was hanging by a thread, etc...... The hotel employees were unfriendly and all in all this is a hotel that I would not recommend as a choice to bring your family. Now you know the saying you get what you pay for but I have to say that this hotel is over priced for what you recieve while staying there.

We had planned to go to Destin to snorkel. The hotel is very close to the jetties and allowed us to park our jet ski. There is a ramp to put in on the Harbor Walk which is an easy walk from the hotel. They charge $10 for the ramp and $20 to park the trailer but since the hotel is so close, you can drive back and park and be picked up on the small sand beach. The people working the desk are really really nice. The rooms are OK but the view is amazing. Tons of million $ boats, pretty water....the pool area is nice, has music and a little canvas gazebo with cushioned furnature, not just plastic chairs. There is a seawall on part of the property and a place adjacent that is a litle beach area. They told us we could beach the jet ski if we wanted. There is a sandy area above the seawall w/umbrellas and chairs at no cost....kids could dig in the sand....it is nice. Definitely get the balcony overlooking the water rather than the street. Harborwalk has tons of bars and restaurants, a lot w/music and you don't need to drive to get there....also there is a handy liquor store just across the street. This was our first time to Destin and unfortunately the weather did not cooperate for snorkeling so I can't review that but we will try again and definitely stay here. Breakfast had lots of choices and was good, the best part is the eating area overlooks the harbor and has big windows....they also have a few couches so you can hang out in bad weather if you want to escape the room....everything was clean, we can't wait to go back.

We were at The Inn for 2 nights to attend the Seafood fest. The location is fantastic for the festival and all that the Harbor has. Easy walk to lots, of dining, drinking and fun. There is a tiny sand "beach", but you can't get in the water there and a cute little pool. The views of the boats and the Gulf beyond was very nice.
The staff, esp. Susie (although she was the only one we saw) was super! Nothing but nice,helpful and super down home friendly. Big continental breakfast was also included.
The downfall was the room. The carpet was stained in areas, and there was peeling wallpaper. As someone had said before it was the smallest bathroom I have ever seen (but hey I understand that) Also the mattress was pretty darn bad with a dent in the center.
If someone took this place under their tender loving care it could be a super cute boutique Inn and with the progress at the
Harbor could be a romantic little stop or the perfect spot for a party weekend.

  • Liked — Convenience in walking to Harbor

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.

  • Liked — Small and quiet, comfortable
  • Disliked — bathrooms a bit small, ok for 2 people though

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.)
