My husband and I stayed for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We could not have picked a better place for this occasion. We stayed in the Executive suite. The room was great, the service was wonderful and you can't beat the location. The breakfast and lunch service was great and they have beach chairs and umbrellas as well as bicycles available for use. Really enjoyed our stay and hope to return there in the future.

Room Tip: I would recommend spending a little more for one of the upgraded suites in the east building. Much m...

Our 2nd stay, and it won't be our last! Wonderful, professional staff that is always there to make your stay amazing. You need something, just ask! I hate to name one staff member as "special" as they are ALL wonderful... We stayed in room 212 located in the 2nd building. These folks know what most of us are looking for on vacation. We tried the Beach Walk restaurant this trip and had a wonderful dinner. I just can't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting Destin. We look forward to returning in October. Thanks to ALL at Henderson Park Inn for taking such great care of us, you are the best!! :)

Room Tip: No fitness center.... take a walk on the beach for a good "workout" No swimming pool...

This is very hard to rate. As reported by nearly everyone else, the service and food are just excellent. We did not eat in the restaurant for dinner, but the breakfast and the crew that makes/serves it is absolutely wonderful. The box lunches for lunch are just perfect. Loved the tiki bar happy hour each day. Just a wonderful perk! The candy bars and drinks available throughout the day are another wonderful perk. The rooms however, ugh…super small, musty, and very outdated. We stayed in a junior suite. I cannot even imagine what the mini would be like. We could hardly both be in this room comfortably and that's not an exaggeration. The carpet was a outdated shag like carpet so I was scared to death to walk on it barefoot. As in a lot of beach properties, I would suggest tile flooring or something similar. Carpet has no business here. The bathroom was hardly big enough for one person and also very outdated. The bed was very uncomfortable, just lumpy and worn. This was our first vacation in years (unable to take for a few years for different reasons). I would love to make this a yearly vacation but am hesitant to do so unless the rooms have been updated. If that is done this would easily be a 5 star!

Room Tip: If you have a lot of money to spend you would certainly benefit from the bigger, nicer rooms in the...

We have been to the Destin area a gazillion times but never stayed here. WHAT were we thinking! If your soul needs a rest, you have a special celebration, or you just need to get away. This is your place. Great place to spend your 33rd wedding anniversay as we did! The nicest people you will ever meet work here. We had the absolute worst weather the 4 days we were there, but they have plenty to do or....the best place to just Relax and do nothing. Can't say a bad word about our stay, oh except To Much Rain! :( We will Definitely be back!

Room Tip: Room 203 ~beautiful room~ Best room to see the most awesome sunset~ Its a corner suite~

This is a remarkable property with excellent service. Breakfast made to order or a buffet, boxed lunches you order the day before are all included and a free happy hour at the tiki bar. Adults only hotel.

The staff is excellent, and you are steps from the beach. Chairs, umbrellas and a fire pit.

We love B&B because of the smallness and charm. We were disappointed to learn that a large company has bought the hotel and has plans for a major condo / resort / golf course / hotel that we feel would ruin the beauty of this hotel.

The plans for a monstrosity hotel type resort at the Henderson Park inn property have been going on for several years. Luckily it seems to have stalled a little based on, litigation and community protests.

We hope it stays small and charming.

Room Tip: 3rd floor do not have a full balcony in the main house.

Following a hectic schedule at the Mardi Gras in New Orleans and Mobile, Destin was an ideal place to wind down before our long trip home to the UK. In particular, the Henderson Park Inn offered the tranquility we sought, with staff that could not be more helpful.

We were greeted with a friendly welcome and were shown to rooms which were spacious with a balcony overlooking the white sands of the the beach that stretched as far as you could see in both directions.

Overall the food, staff and facilities were excellent and we hope to go back in the future.

Highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone looking for a romantic getaway. The staff and accommodations are excellent. Great location also. We are looking forward to returning in a couple years (or sooner).
