Historical Traveler Reviews Inn on Destin Harbor
Adequate, but not extraordinary
We stayed at the Inn for one night to supplement a 3-night condo stay. First impression of the lobby and harbor view were promising. Registration was ineffecient as we were told our room was cleaned, but they couldn't check us in until they entered the previous occupant's departure. We waited in the lobby 45 minutes. Our first floor, harbor-view room was clean, but basic (think Holiday Inn). Shower & toilet area was very cramped, and since the toilet had no lid, we had to be careful with our belongings. For the continental breakfast, we wanted to escape the tiny breakfast area and have our meal beside the pool, overlooking the harbor. It required going downstairs, walking to the end of the building to exit, and then walking back to the middle of the building for pool access. I'd recommend this location only to those seeking lodgings under $250 and needing a more flexible arrival/departure than condos offer.
We had a blast staying at The Inn. The service was great, very friendly and prompt. The view is very refreshing. It's right on the Harbor and it's walking distance to AJ's and other popular places. I would definitely check out The Inn on Destin Bay again when I return. Oh, if you're a golfer it's MINUTES from several great courses.
Wonderful location & incredible harbor view
The harbor view is phenomenal. The hotel is within a stone's throw of a lot of quality places to eat and drink in Destin like Marina Cafe and Harbor Docks. In my opinion, this is among the most convenient locations in Destin.
The staff was extremely helpful during a recent three night stay, and I experienced zero problems unlike I do at many hotels. This is an exceptionally clean hotel as well. I highly recommend it.
Love this boutique style hotel
My wife and I found this little jewel of an Inn this past February. We love the harbor views and the warm fireplace overlooking the harbor. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will be back in fall for the
Sea Food Festivel.
Hated the Inn!
The faculty at the Inn on Destin Harbor was terrible!! They gave misinformation and then charged us for it!!! I recommend going elsewhere!
A Great Place to Chill Out
I visited this hotel during a rainy, cold, January weekend and highly recommend it. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and down-to-earth. We asked for recommendations for restaurants and they gave us several great ideas, and told us about prices and locations, also.
The lobby area and breakfast area are clean, bright, and comfortable.
As 2 single women, we also felt very safe and enjoyed the fact it wasn't a mega-hotel. Parking was easy for us, but could be tight during the spring or summer.
As far as the rooms, they have obviously been refurbished, and the balcony rooms are great. We had 2 queen size beds, a mini-fridge, and
the usual ammenities. The only "minus" I saw was that the bathroom is
TINY...as in, the toilet is 3 inches away from the shower.
I'd advise you to spend the extra $$ for a balcony room. (In the winter, I think it was $10) Even on a cold winter day, we sat outside, enjoying the view (and a drink!) There is a junky boatyard next door, but otherwise, the view is good.
BTW, this really is a better choice for adults than those with kids. There is a small pool, and a TINY piece of "beach," (think: a large sandbox!) but I think kids would enjoy a real beach hotel or
condo more than the Inn.
Loved the views and service
This boutque hotel was a very exciting place to stay, the views of the harbour are more interesting than the Gulf of Mexico. All the boats and lights at night out side our balcony made it very interesting. The location in walking distance to the restaurants, made it convienent. The staff appeared to go out of thier way to insure my wife and I had a wonderful trip to Destin. This is the most unquie Inn we have ever stayed in. We will definately return next year!
We loved it
The hotel was clean and the staff friendly. At the time we were there they were doing much updating and cleaning, (carpets, etc). The view was spectacular, it was worth the upgrade! I would stay again.
The view makes this hotel
I found this hotel while searching for rooms in Destin and the website really appealed to me. I must say that when we got there, I was a bit disappointed in some of the features, however. For one thing, this hotel is small and far from new, meaning that it could use some major updating. It tries to look updated, but the musky smell quickly gives that away as do the carpets and inexpensive bedding. Also, the bath was extremely small with barely enough room to turn around. What make this place is it's view of Destin's harbor which is outstanding and that is why I have rated it above average. So, my advise is if you can get a room with a view of the harbor, go for it. However, if all that is left is a city view room, I think I would take my money elsewhere.
We had a great stay. The hotel was so clean and pretty. The hotel couldnt have been in a better location. Close to all the beaches and resturaunts we had a blast.

... days! How weird that I have more driving experience in America than the UK. I will definitely be driving on the wrong side when I'm at home, and what the hell is manual these days??? Destin was a good stopover and the beach was lovely, the weather is very temperamental and that ruined it a little. It's also quite commercial and 'chavvy' so I probably wouldn't go back but it was good to see. Next stop New ...
... and traditional than Seaside. The Red Bar is busy, noisy, and looks a bit of a dive, but the queue outside despite a 90minute wait to be seated hinted at the quality inside. We were not to be disappointed. My dish of blackened grouper fish (chunky fillet grilled with Cajun spices) was by far the best seafood dish I've ever eaten, and up there with some of the best food I've eaten, period. If you ever find yourself in that neck of the woods, ...
... traffic, especially since traffic through the panhandle of Florida is pretty much restricted to I-10. However, it is worse than expected. Traffic is incredibly heavy as holiday revelers head back to all points in Mississippi and Alabama. The impatient, exhausted, and probably still hungover drivers, with their various combinations of pick-ups, cars, RVs, boats, and trailers, contribute to the bumper to bumper traffic. ...

... them to learn.... Had a scare today with camper... Came back from seaside and only the back a\c was working. The rest of the camper was dead. Thankfully Haole was in the back where it was cool. And Rick was persistent and able to call Rocky Mountain rv and talk through options. Turned out it was the campsite 50amp hookup that was the problem. Very very thankful!! Going inland tomorrow for a kayak trip, looking forward to ...
