This place was by far the most welcoming i have ever felt staying at a hotel. Right when we walked in we were greeted by Marco. We asked if we could be on the highest floor. He was like sure, here you go. We took our bags to our room and went down the the bar. Christina was just opening...

This property suited us perfectly. Attractive pricing and clean and comfortable. Breakfast was decent for a free meal. You are entitled to a complimentary beach chair and umbrella with your stay. Staff was helpful in finding a restaurant serving Thanksgiving diner during out stay. Perfect beach to view from our balcony and the room was clean and had no odors....

This is our second time here. Very friendly staff, the beach is fantastic even in November. Christina always makes us feel special and makes the best cocktails! We have a blast here and will be back again.

We had a great day watching football poolside, enjoying our day on the beach with free chairs and umbrella, comfortable beds and rooms. The breakfast was presented well and the lobby had a very quirky, Floridian feel. However, there is a bar off of the lobby and the music kept us up until midnight. So, if you want an early...

Very disappointed in the stay we had in this hotel and will never be back until the staff and hotel is cleaned and the quality of food in the morning on the breakfast bar is edible to eat and by that I mean the eggs.

Right on the beach for perfect sunset and sunrises in the fall. Dolphins even swam by in the mornings, playing close to the beach. Great walking on the beach as well for that morning exercise! Nice to have a breakfast too!

Good breakfast and service of the staff. Rooms are dated but that was the only drawback. Internet and view of water were both great! Bed was comfy and wife had no complaints. It does the job especially for the location and price. I think it meets expectations.

I would recommend it to anybody! The rates were affordable for the time of the year. It was directly on the beach. I also love that it had an outside and inside entrance. The breasfast was awesome and fulfilling.

Upon arrival, I was greeted by a very friendly front desk representative! He was also kind enough to move me to a room with an ocean view, which was an added bonus considering I was traveling alone. The hotel itself isn't overflowing with updates, but it's certainly clean and fits the beachy look altogether! A short walk out the back...

A great retro stay. The view from our balcony was amazing. Just steps away from the beach. Amazing umbrella and chairs for white sandy beach enjoyment. This is a real jewel located very close to good eats and and Destin without all the mob of people. Breakfast was adequate with a good variety. The shower had wonderfully HOT water with...
