I paid $110 (taxes included) for a suite that would've cost me at least $150 at a more popular chain. The room resembled an Embassy Suites with a TV in both the living area and the bedroom. I will definitely be back!! There was nothing not to like.
Everyone was really nice and it's a great location for the pricing The gym was a little too simple
Staff very helpful. Clean facilities.
If you want a resort or luxury stay, not the place. If you want a hotel priced fairly and on the main road, this is it. Pros: renovated, fairly priced, friendly, conveniently located, full cable TV (not limited chain hotel programming). This hotel is recently renovated and looks nice. It isn't a luxury resort, so don't expect the bells and whistles of one. Check in was easy and the staff is very friendly. Room is exactly as I expected, new and comfy. I had no issues with the hotel or room. The bed is comfy enough but not the best there is, like a 4-5 star Hilton. But it is not cheap like a Motel 6. The bathroom looks nice, but the shower has a cheaper feel to it. None of these shortcomings is a deal breaker. The only bad area I experienced was hallway noise traveled into the room very easy. It sounded like my door was open and I was part of the conversation. Turing on the AC fan helped the issue but didn't solve if. Breakfast is complimentary and offers hot and continental offerings. Seating is limited, and I suggest arriving before 8am as everyone tries to eat after 8. If you want to go to the beach, don't walk. It is a little far and carrying everything will be tiring. I suggest going to Henderson State Park. Best beach in the area! And its across the highway from the hotel. The hotel is located in a good spot and easy to locate. I recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Destin for a bargain price. If you are willing to spend more, then get the hotel with the resort feel and resort price. Cons: hallway noise can be heard, small TV, not beach accessible.
Holiday Inn Express always seems to have consistently good hotels. After a string of 'not what we expected' hotels during our trip, this final destination was just what we needed! It was very roomy, clean, and inviting. The beds were comfortable and we loved the microwave/frig/coffee pot area with cabinets. \n \nThe hotel is not directly on the beach. However, it is only a block from the beach and it is a very easy walk. Breakfast was good and the staff was very nice. \n \nOur friends that we met up with paid $* a night for their condo. Ours was a much better value for the money and I would definately stay here again..... probably next year!
I was very impressed with this hotel. Beds were super comfortable, bathroom spacious, plenty of towels, etc. and temp adjustable right at your fingertips. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was the topper!! Nice little buffet with eggs, bacon, biscuits, sauage & gravy, bagels, enlish muffins, breakfast muffins, cereals, yogurts, juices...just everything...and it's FREE!! Couldn't ask for better than that! With it's location across from Destin Commons and other shopping strip malls, we will definitely stay at this hotel again.
although the staff was friendly, we were close to the beach and rooms weren't bad ~ there are rooms on that are allowed to smoke. The whole point of getting a 'non-smoking room' is because we didn't want to smell it...having rooms on the same floor that smoke makes that impossible.
The hotel was a couple of blocks off the beach with plenty of public access. The room was adaquate but the air conditioning could not pull the moisture out of the room so there was a distinct odor of mildew.
The hotel was quiet and well located to visit the area's many attractions. We stayed here to go off shore fishing for two days. We took advantage of the free breakfast before going fishing and it was a great selection each morning. This was the best free breakfast I've ever found at any hotel.
My boyfriend and I decided to go to Destin for the weekend with a couple of friends. My boyfriend's friend couldn't stop saying what a great location the hotel was in. It was close to the beach, Destin Commons was right across the way and Silver Sands Outlet was down the highway. We enjoyed our room and the beds were comfortable. I must say the only problem with was the noise up above our room. The hotel only has 3 floors our room was on the second floor and their room was on the third and they still heard loud noise above their room.
Good value for the economy price, nice pool for kids and pleasant but small lobby. There was no early check-in during Spring Break.
Stayed here several times and have always had a good experience. Rooms are clean and the complimentary breakfasts is decent. Best part is the 7 min walk to the beach. I will continue to stay here for future trips to Destin.
I didn't rate 5 because they were remodeling by the time we arrived. That was a bad surprise at the moment but they were prepared to handle the situation and they did it very good. They put us in a room away from the noise and actually we didn't any problem with this. The staff was great, they were very friendly and solved quickly a problem with the phone. The hotel is 5 minutes from the outlet center and very close to the beach. Lot of places to eat.
Upon check-in, there was a dirty washcloth still in the bathtub. During the stay, the housekeepers didn't empty a full can of garbage one day nor did they leave a bath mat or adequate toilet paper, resulting in a late night run to the front desk. The breakfast was decent each morning. If you choose to stay here, try to request the top floor---we were on the first floor, and Big Foot was in the room above us. The location was great---right across the street from the Destin Commons mall, and on the same side of the highway as the beach, which was within walking distance. Outback and Barnes and Noble are right next door, too. It was much cheaper than a condo, and if it's too cold to hang out on the beach anyway, why spend the extra money?
i would stay at the hotel again and recommend others to stay there also.
