“Great hotel with great location”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

Great hotel and great location! This hotel offered fast check in, large suite with small kitchen, updated television to serve the bedroom and sitting area rooms. The king size bed was not comfortable at all! Neither my husband or I had one good night sleep during our stay. The hotel was full so we had to remain in the same uncomfortable bed. The hotel had many guests from the east coast that were there to avoid the heavy snow at their home town. Except for the bed, we had a good stay here. The weather changed and all of the bridges were closed due to the ice so we had to stay an additional night. The hotel offered great breakfast, evening horderves and wine. The breakfast area was very spacious, comfortable and clean. This area workers did a great job on keeping the tables clean and bring additional food out to avoid it from being out. This hotel was next door to a shopping area, movie theater, and great restaurants. It was a short drive to Destin area. Hotel had free parking and plenty of room to park. Great hotel! We were there on a business trip for a few days but we would definitely visit again rather it's business or personal trip.

I am glad that you enjoyed your business stay with us at the Residence Inn Sandestin. Thank you for your comments regarding the breakfast, social hour and appearance of our Gatehouse! The breakfast team we have is exceptional and thank you for recognizing their hard work and great service. I regret that you experienced discomfort with the mattress type in your room - I hope that you will be able to join us again soon so that we can make sure you are more comfortable! The ice storm was certainly not something you would expect here in Florida but I am happy that we were able to accommodate you during that time. I hope the next time you are here that the weather is nicer so you can enjoy our gorgeous beaches and parks!

We are on military assignment from India and are here for past more than 6 months along with our families.Residence Inn is The Place to stay.There are other properties like Hilton etc nearby but no match to Residence Inn.Hospitality wise, the staff, let it be front desk or house keeping are extremely warm, cordial and meticulous. They understand your day to day need and go out of way to make your stay comfortable. Morning breakfast with wide range of spread is out of world and evening socials are real feast with wine and beer.its a real treat.Rooms are the beauty of this Hotel, well equipped with all the basic amenities you can think of like flat screen TV, big double door fridge, dish washers , microwave,closets, bathrooms with nice big bathing tub,reasonably size kitchenette. The property is well equipped with basket ball court, swimming pool, Jacuzzi and gym. It is recently renovated and is a great location with in the Grand Boulevard areas, lots of great mouth watering restaurant state of art cinema theater and a large Premiums Outlet Silver Sand with every possible brand, if you want to shop.All this makes residence Inn most preferred place to stay with extremely affordable rates.All thanks to Mr Ron Couget and Jeff League, Men behind the show, all ways on there toes just to make stay of each and every guest as comfortable as possible .YOU GUYS ROCK.... ! It was more than a home for us,Most memorable stay of my life. thanks guys. God Bless

This new Residence Inn is a great place for vacationers and those on business. The property is fairly new, and is a great location near the Grand Boulevard areas, shops, beach access and a large Premiums Outlet is you want to shop.

The staff is excellent, very cordial and the proprty immaculate. It has all the Residence Inn creature comforts, like a pool, sauna and exercise room, but is modern and inviting.

The breakfast there is a step above and the staff is extremely accomodating and the food choices quite nice. In the evenings, the management host BBQs, and other events.

They only downside is you are a mile or so from the beach, but there's state park access and public access as well.

I'd highly recommend this property when in the area.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are nice and sunny.

We just completed a long term stay at this hotel and did not want to leave! EVERY single one of the numerous staff members did their very best to make us, and all other guests feel welcome, as well as do an outstanding job for their particular area of responsibilities. What a well managed hotel!!! The rooms and common areas were just newly renovated, along with lots of new landscaping completed outside. New road, drainage, sidewalks, lighting, trees, shrubs and so on. Even a brand new quiet park across the street.
We loved our newly renovated room. Very comfortable, great design and colors, as well as functional, including the small kitchen. Windows open and have screens for those who want a little fresh air. We had outstanding internet which is always important to us. USA Today newspaper, as well as daily and weekly local papers were complimentary.
The breakfast each morning was very, very good, and the breakfast staff was the best we have had at any hotel to date. Very friendly, and all did their best to make sure all guests were happy with the numerous choices of hot or cold breakfast items. Our favorite was ready made hot oatmeal along with their blueberries, walnuts and fresh fruit. Must say though, when we had scrambled eggs and potatoes they were excellent. Lots of other choices available such as parfaits, waffles, Canadian turkey bacon, muffins, bagels, yogurt, just to name a few. The coffee was also excellent, and after breakfast was available 24/7 in the library. Also, a couple of weekday nights social hour type food events each week, even beer and wine for those who wanted it. The brand new lobby, library, dining and food areas were all very nice.
The location of this hotel was excellent. We enjoyed walking up Grand Blvd. to the numerous very nice restaurants, as well as the new theatre. Mitchell's Fish Market for lunch was our favorite restaurant. Lunch available until 4pm, and just a 5 minute walk. Be sure to ask for the complimentary sourdough french bread. Take out also available. The Publix grocery store is also just up the street, and the fairly recent new Walmart is just 1 1/2 miles East of hotel. Baytown Wharf and Silver Sands Premium Outlets very close by, and 30A makes for an easy drive.
This hotel exceeded our expectations, and we plan to return often.

We stopped in Destin on our way back home and decided to spend two extra nights ( total 4) at this lovely Residence Inn. Located on a busy hwy right at the edge of a fabulous shopping center with good restaurant choices. The breakfast which is included each day offered good quality and assortment. The staff were very helpful and even brought beer over to us on a tray one night during a social event ( also included a few nights a week). The front desk receptionist gave me a coupon book for the outlet mall a few miles away and suggested a lovely beach to go to that was quiet and had free parking. The room was comfortable and quiet ( we were on the quiet side). I loved sitting out at the pool and noticed there was a pickleball court next to it. We had no problem with the two buildings but the weather was nice. My only criticism is that the parking seems tight and they could use a canopy over the entrance. Great place to stay in Destin and economical too.

Room Tip: Ask for suite on high floor and not on hwy

Thank you so much Lisa! I am happy that we made such a great impression that you extended your stay with us. Thank you for taking advantage of the lovely social hour events that we promote in the hotel as well as the breakfast. The front desk agents here are well versed in the area and it seems like they took great care of you, offering you deals to the outlet mall as well as information about local beach access and dining. I understand your comment about needing a covering at the entrance of the hotel - you never know what to expect with Florida weather. I will look into your suggestion. Thank you! I hope that you will be able to join us again in the future!
