Affordable and nice

Posted Jun 5, 2017
We chose the cheapest hotel we could find that appeared well maintained. You never know what you're gonna get, but we were not dissapointed. One of the best night's sleep we have ever had at a hotel and despite not having a good view, it is extremely close enough to drive two minutes to beach with free parking. We already decided we would stay here again in September when the prices drop even more!

Quick trip to Ft. Walton Beach

Posted May 31, 2017
The room was a good size and breakfast was very good with a good variety of options. Hotel was generally clean except the carpet was very dark color and did I not feel clean to bare feet. Bed was comfortable.

The good thing is it is close to the activities

Posted May 30, 2017
Not the greatest for cleanliness, very outdated and kind of over priced but it was in a good spot across from the beach and food area.

Small hotel with a great location.

Posted May 15, 2017
Pros: We liked the following about this hotel: It had everything we needed in a hotel room, it's location, it was clean, it's nice pool, comfy firm beds.
Cons: I think you have done what you can do with the property. Just maintain this property or it could quickly become a dump if neglected.
Location: The beaches, the Boardwalk, many restaurants, convention center, Destin, Fort Walton Beach, sailing, boating, shopping - it is in a great location.
This is a small hotel on Miracle Strip Parkway. It is next to the Convention Center and near the Boardwalk and many restaurants. It is a small hotel (7 floors with 70 rooms). The exterior structure is not beautiful but it is clean, safe, and well maintained. The lobby and breakfast area is small but very nice. Our room was small but adequate. It had everything you need - two comfortable queen beds, fridge, microwave, desk, and a good bathroom/shower. This hotel also has a laundry room with a washer, dryer, drink machine, and snack machine. It also has a nice outdoor pool. The front desk employees were friendly. It had everything we needed for our short stay.

Pros: very comfortable, great price, friendly staff
Cons: Nothing about the hotel itself, but it would be great if there were more restaurants nearby
Location: strip club next door- what is the deal with florida and strip clubs? 10 min walk to the beach
This is a really cozy place with helpful and friendly staff. It's a little bit of a walk to the beach and restaurants, but not too bad. Hopefully one day Ft. Walton Beach will decide they want to be a legit destination and put in a pedestrian bridge over the road., or at least make the 'walk' buttons of their crosswalks actually work.

A Good Hotel overall

Posted May 6, 2017
Many people these days expect a great deal from everyone. Emerald coast was an actual good hotel by an objective standard. Good rooms, Excellent staff and a solid location. It may be right across the main road from the beach but i don't see that as particularly a bad thing. The place has obviously been updated (i was there in the first week of May 2017) and i found it to have everything i needed and then some. The staff was friendly the few times we spoke because i stay to myself but i honestly could not complain. Would i stay again? Without hesitation, yup. I read a lot of reviews from hotels and such before i book a room and that's what led me to pick emerald coast. I love destin, it's quite and clean and everything is really close. I hope this review helps someone.

right across the street from the Boardwalk

Posted May 2, 2017
Cons: minor complaints but bathroom was small and breakfast options were limited for my tastes (no fresh fruit, no yogurt, same 2 cereals each day).
decent hotel across the street from the Boardwalk and the beach.

Cute Boutique like hotel

Posted May 2, 2017
Pros: Nice breakfast
Cute little hotel across from Beach. Great for the price! Friendly staff and easy check in. The breakfast the following morning was just the perfect set up. Just enough choices for a small hotel. Rooms are nice and clean. Will stay again.

Discusting

Posted Apr 22, 2017
When I checked in the clerk was not friendly. We went up to the room and opened the door and it stunk like mold. We turned the air on, which would not turn off, and when we got back it was worse. I'm pretty sure bed bugs ate me up all night and I felt like I had pneumonia the next morning. My whole family was sick. It was discusting and I couldn't wait to check out. We almost got up in the middle of the night and left it was so bad. I will never stay here again
