This hotel is, in fact across from the beach but you have to walk down the street for a public access. I wouldn't recommend paying extra for the "gulf view" we could barely see the gulf through the building across the street. The beds were uncomfortable and seemed small for queen beds, after the first night we tried to upgrade to suite and there were none available. Upon calling they told my husband that in their computer they had us checking out that day. We had 5 more nights! They said it was a glitch in their system. Hotel was very clean, they seemed to be doing intense cleaning everyday we were there; elevators, pool etc. Our room was not cleaned on the 2nd day. (Maybe because they had us checking out that day?) Also, beware Hilton Honors guests, if you book through a 3rd party (Orbitz, Hotels.com, Travelocity etc.) you won't get your Hilton Honors points.

We stopped for 3 nights over the weekend as part of a road trip across the Panhandle stopping in nine hotels over 3 weeks and THIS WAS EASILY THE BEST! (okay - so yes it was the most expensive too). Right from the check-in 'Jessica' is worthy of a big mention - she really looked after us, changing our room choice and was so friendly with local tips and info'. Thank you Jessica - it went a long way to making our experience brilliant. The room, hotel generally, pool area, its location within short walking distance to Henderson State Park beach was all exemplary. The breakfast was also well above the usual hotel standards we experienced elsewhere. We also enjoyed chatting to the newly appointed Aussie manager who was very friendly too. What great place! Add to that, the beach sand and water clarity was the best by far of a dozen beaches we visited from the Big Bend to the Alabama border. Would love to revisit sometime.

New Hotel with easy access off Highway 98. Great Staff and comfortable bed. Only stayed one night awaiting an RCI property for a weeks stay at Destin. This is one of the nicest Hampton Inns I have stayed at in recent years. I will stay again in the future.

Stayed here Augut 6th-10th. Used Hilton Honor points to pay for the room so I cannot comment on the nightly rate or compare it to the price of other hotels.

This is a typical Hampton Inn with a few extras. Nicer fitness center than most Hamptons, wich had much more space and equipment than I am used to seeing at the other Hamptons where I regularaly stay. Also has a nice, large outdoor pool with lots of chairs and tables surrounding it, and grills available for guests to use. There is also a very nice, large seating area right outside the breakfast area, which is completely separate from the pool. Nice for eating breakfast outside. The best feature of this hotel is its proximity to the public beach access. You can walk to the beach in 5 minutes, crossing over Scenic Hwy 98, which is not very busy and can easily be walked across. Also - parking at this hotel is free. There is also free public parking on Scenic Hwy 98 near the hotel, if you have guests staying in other parts of Destin who want to join you. You can borrow beach towels from the lobby for free. Just don't lose them or forget to return them before you check out. There will be a charge. They also charge if you lose or forget to return your key cards, so keep that in mind. Most hotels don't expect you to return them, but I believe this hotel charged ten dollars a card if you didn't return them when checking out.

I have read some reviews with negative comments on the breakfast situation. We typically ate around 8:30 and did not have any problems finding a table or getting enough food. It was busy so you may have to wait a minute here or there to make your way to the food you want at the buffet, but it was not bad at all. There is also a small pantry with cold drinks and snacks for sale, next to the lobby desk.

The rooms are typical Hampton Inn style rooms, maybe slightly on the small side if you are not in a suite. Our room (Not a suite) had 2 queen beds, a TV stand, desk, and chair, and not much room for anything else. The mini refrigerator and microwave seemed to come standard in the room, but maybe check with them when you are making your reservation to confirm this. Bathroom was decent size. I was impressed with the TV channel selection. Had pretty much everything, not just limited to basic cable, sports, and news like a lot of hotels offer.

If you have a car, you will be a quick drive to a Target, WalMart, Publix, Walgreens, and lots of other stores and restaurants. The is a go-cart place right across from the hotel on the Main Hwy 98. The only big restaurant that you can probably walk to is the Back Porch, which is on the beach and is next to the public access to the beach.

I really have nothing to complain about. Room was clean, staff were friendly, and the location was great for easily getting to the beach, which was our main concern.

Room Tip: Only one side of the hotel faces the ocean, and rooms on the first and second floor of that side are...

My family and I are frequent travelers. We enjoyed this hotel very much. It was quite new, very clean, and convenient to the beach. The breakfast buffet was extensive and the eating area had plenty of tables and seating. We were able to carry our folding chairs, beach umbrella, towels, etc. to the beach without difficulty -- it was perhaps a 100 yard walk. The Back Porch restaurant down the street is convenient and has delicious seafood.

Our stay at this hotel was a sheer pleasure! We had a room with a gulf view, and the hotel was in close proximity to the beach, a variety of restaurants, and lots of shopping. The hotel was CLEAN from top to bottom, and the staff was very personable and welcoming. The breakfast area was well stocked, even with the high volume of guests staying there. The pool was sparkling clean and inviting I will definitely stay at this hotel when I return to Destin. It's a must !!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: Try to get the gulf view. Beautiful morning greeting!
