This hotel has the potential of being a 4 star property but its a long way from it now. Positives - a great setting, a looks (from a distance), nice adjoining state park property, wonderful beach and water, OK breakfast, nice restaurant, free candy bars.

We love this place and plan to come back. The staff are friendly and greet you every time you walk by. The property is beautiful. A lovely inn with character right on the white sandy beach of Destin. I actually booked at the last minute, so had to change rooms a couple of times and every new room greeted us...

This is truly a unique B&B. We have been visiting the Gulf Coast two to three times a year for our entire lives, and we have never experienced a locale like the Henderson Park Inn. In fact, you can check it out the beach and grounds on the Inn's live webcam on its website. The luxurious and plush rooms, the...

My husband and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary so went back to the Henderson Park Inn. Everything was wonderful. From the greeting from the staff that were still there to the tray in the room with wine, grapes, chocolate and roses the Inn surprises you with the little things. Love the beach chairs and umbrellas just waiting for...

This is a wonderful inn, on the beach and in a great spot. Fabulous views, wonderful staff, yummy breakfasts. But it is not a 5 star, Ritz or Four Seasons. Rooms are good size, very clean, but a bit rustic. Best hotel in the area, and worth a stay, but don't expect a 5 star or the amenities that come...

Let me start by saying the folks at this hotel are delightful. It is a rustic hotel on a beautiful beach with the finest of powdery sand. We stayed in a corner room at over $500/night when you add the taxes etc. The rooms need work as does much of the property. Beds are comfortable and air conditioning excellent. Weekend...

We enjoyed our stay very much. We loved all the complimentary extras, such as wine in our room upon arrival, happy hour, drinks and snacks for the beach, beach chairs & umbrellas. The beach is beyond beautiful! Also, we liked the adults only policy. We hope to come again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Each guest is welcomed with a complimentary bottle of wine, fresh grapes and flowers upon arrival. Start your day with a complimentary full breakfast overlooking the Gulf of Mexico at our Destin beach restaurant. A delicious selection of cook-to-order omelets, made from scratch biscuits and gravy, fresh fruit, pastries, scrumptious bacon and sausage and so much more. Next, cruise down to the beach, but first stop by our community refrigerator to grab some beverages on the way down and then relax under an umbrella and on our complimentary beach chairs. Soak up the sunshine, go for a bike ride or take a long walk for a relaxing stroll down the beach. After you’ve worked up an appetite, stop in for a complimentary lunch (excluding holidays). For a quick snack stop through the lobby for lemonade and cookies as an added treat. Before dinner, mosey down to the restaurant for happy hour nightly while overlooking the Gulf Coast’s most beautiful beaches and colorful sunsets. Arrive back to your room after a day of relaxation and indulgence with gourmet chocolates and a complimentary turn down service. Each Suite is a perfect place to enjoy the charm and grace embraced by the peaceful shores of the Emerald Coast. Handicap-accessible units available. Come see why Henderson Park Inn is one of the hotels on the beach in Destin, Florida. ... more   less
