We rented this place for the pool, which was closed for cleaning. They did what they could to have it opened for us as soon as possible and gave us a small discount for the inconvenience. The staff was beyond pleasant and attentive. Rooms were great.

The motel was beyond what we expected,the staff was very friendly and the room was really clean and up to date and the location was great because it was easy access to either Fort Walton or Panama city beach and the view from our room was awesome will stay there again for the next family vacation and recommend it to anyone.

Strange to have exit door to east of pool walkway non-functioning so that push bar on inside of door does not work. Card reader on outside did open door. Temperature control of heat for room hard to control, just kept throwing out heat, set at 71 would go to 75 (by my own thermometer)

The good: Room was clean and comfortable. The ac worked well. The balcony was nice. The tv worked well. Microwave worked well. Shower was hot and had good pressure. 11am checkout was nice. Hotel had good hot tub, and two pools. Breakfast was good! The not so good: The wifi was not very strong or very fast on the 4th floor. I purchase the romance package, which included wine, chocolates, flowers, and rose pedals on the bed. This was nice except that they left the price tag on the flowers. The balcony didnt have the best view, the building looked a little dirty from that perspective. The blinds to the balcony door did not work, which made it bright in the morning. The mirror was a little crooked which bothered me.

Destin Beach get away

Pros: The friendly staff. They were able to give me directions on places to go and also was prompt to fixing the slow drain in my shower.
Cons: more selection on the breakfast.
Location: we was across the street from the beach, Big Kahuna water park, Jim n' Nick bar b q, other sea food resturants.
The staff was really friendly, the front desk found a room available for me to check in early since we got there before 3 pm. This hotel had great amenities for the 4 days we were there. I was on the first floor and to my surprise, I didn't really hear the noise of guest coming in and out. Breakfast every morning, laundry room and indoor/outdoor pool. Walking distance for the places we wanted to go. All in all it was a great trip.
