Its always sad to leave a vacation at the end of the week. We didn't really worry about how the ride down would go, we knew we would be tired but we figured it was the best solution for little miss, the ride home on the other hand scared the living heck out of me. There was no real way to drive overnight this time around. We decided to wake up at 5:00 and head out as early as we could. ...
... was absolutely mesmerized. She spent the whole rest of the cruise pointing to dolphins and birds as she saw them, giggling and smiling, dancing and waving to everyone else on board. Once we got back to the harbor we had two different groups of people tell us she was the hit of the trip (which of course made my heart swell with pride).
I would highly recommend sea blaster for dolphin cruises, they make it so much fun ...
... right back down to the water and went in up to her knees. We were so excited, keep in mind, up until this point in the week, if the waves even touched her toes, she instantly took off in the other direction as fast as her little legs would take her. I ran so quick to catch up with her that I didn't get a chance to grab my camera so I didn't get to get a picture of her :(. From that point on she loved the water, mommy's little girl loving ...
... Beach for dinner to try another one of the restaurant gift cards we had. This time we ate at The Original Waterfront Crab Shack. It was a cute little side of the road seafood place, great service and delicious food. Little miss gobbled up 3/4 of her grilled cheese sandwich and hubby and I both ate every last bite of food on our plates. It sits right on the marina, so another amazing view to eat dinner to. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Comfort Inn Destin
A Very Pleasant Place
Hotel was better than I expected. Extremely clean inside and out -- pool was very nice and staff was extremely friendly and helpful when we needed directions and other info. Would definitely go again!!! Just a short drive to the beach, could walk if you wanted to but we were afraid to brave the busy traffic.
Way over priced for distance to the beach
This hotel is too far from the beach. You have to cross 4 lanes of BUSY traffic then walk thru the state park. If you drive it is $4 to park. We had a balcony room and yes I could see the water but I could also see the tractor and equipment the park uses. It was so noisy from all the traffic that you really couldn't enjoy it. The breakfast was very basic and the pool was nothing special. You can do much better for the money in the Destin area
Great place to stay
As other reviewers have posted this is a great hotel to stay at. It is new and all rooms have a refrigerator and microwave. The location is perfect and there are many places to shop and eat close by. The room was so comfortable we stayed in two nights and just ate in the room. If you are in the area be sure to go bike riding on the 30A bike path and visit the beautiful communities in the area such as Seaside and Watercolor. If we ever go back to Destin we will definitely stay at this hotel again.
We loved this place! We got a suite (400) with a large balcony overlooking the ocean. It's across a busy street from Henderson State Park. The two pools were wonderful and clean. The indoor one is heated and located beside the well equipped fitness center. The whole place was just immaculate and very well decorated. The staff was extremely friendly, and the deluxe breakfast was far better than those continental breakfasts of stale bagels and watered down orange juice served at most hotels. The only negative thing I can say about this place is that it's a bit tricky to pull into the drive when returning from the beach because of the location of the redlight and the grassy median blocking the way, but hey, that's not their fault, right? We would definately recommend this hotel to our fellow travellers and will certainly stay here again.
Great Place to stay!
Very clean, nice room and decor. Good breakfast, walking distance to the most beautiful beach. Lots of great places to eat close by. Our family had a great time!
Stayed here for 9 nights in July & will be back next July!!!! This Comfort Inn is absolutely terrific!!! Rooms were great, staff was extraordinarily friendly and extremely accommodating, the continental breakfast went way beyond the normal, pastries, cereal, juice, coffee. It is not oceanside, but is located directly across the street from the Henderson State Park where you will find an awesome beach. Has an indoor heated pool and outside pool. Exercise room, although I was too lazy to use it, LOL. I will stay at this hotel again and again and again.
The Comfort was comfortable!
We loved this hotel. Very clean rooms. Big bathroom. Pool was also very clean - not one bug or speck of dirt in it. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Free breakfast had many choices. The only drawback was that it was not oceanfront to walk to beach. I would go back again.
Nicer hotel than we expected!
We stayed there on Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is MUCH nicer than I had expected and the staff was friendly. The only negatives: we were first given a room already occupied (the staff apologized and fixed the problem immediately) and that you have to drive everywhere - but the cab service in the area was great and the hotel overall is in a great location (minus the highway). We enjoyed the beautiful beaches nearby - great food (try the sushi restaurant next door and The Back Porch on the beach for lunch). Great deal for a very busy weekend!
Best Comfort Inn I know of!
Destin is a beautiful place and this is a very nice comfort inn. It is not on the beach, but you can walk or take a short drive to the public beach. It is surrounded by nice restaurants and shops. For a comfort inn, this is the best one I know of!
Great Place to Stay!
We stayed at the Comfort Inn in Destin this last week and we know why it was rated so high..The rooms were very clean. It had a small refrigerator and microwave in the room. It had an indoor and an outdoor swimming pool, exercise room..Everything was very nice and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only negative thing at all I can say, and it is minor, is that you will need to drive across the street to the beach. It might be within "walking distance" , but you have to cross a very busy highway to do get there. The staff even advised against walking. But overall, it was great and we would definitely stay there again!
