If clean, comfortable, and convenient are all you need in Destin, Florida then the Candlewood Suites may work perfectly for you. The hotel is just a short hop from the outlet mall, a few blocks away from the bay (and a nice park), and has a Melting Pot restaurant located on the adjacent property. A nicely designed dog walk is...

My husband and I were on a Gulf Coast road trip and arrived in Destin, Florida without reservations.

It was roomy, very clean and comfortable with both HBO and Encore....

Nice place not on the beach but on the main highway not far from outlet mall and San Destin properties. The hotel was clean and easy access. The beaches are a short drive and the cost reflects the difference.

We recently stayed at this property for three (3) nights. The Candlewood Suites is a good, basic hotel. It is set up for the business traveler. That being said, housekeeping only occurs once a week. However, you can get clean towels and sheets as often as you like. Having the kitchenette (full frig, sink, microwave and 2- eye stove top),...
