The facility was CLEAN!!! I want to say it was recently updated. Our room was very nice! Entry and bath had tile while the sitting area and bed area had clean carpet. A/C kept the room nice and cool, was great to come to after spending the day on the beach. One thing that would have made our experience better would be a more firm mattress, the one we had was like sleeping on a marshmallow.

I have been avoiding Florida's beaches since the uptake in the delta variant of the corona pandemic infection. The loose nature of the state which is enhanced by the governor's stupidity, has made it persona non gratis. However, some friends I hadn't seen in over 10 years were vacationing in the Destin area, so I took a chance and made a quick trip down there. Passing through Destin a few months ago, I noticed a lot of new hotels. The Hilton garden inn as well as the la Quinta, are very new.
However I chose to stay at the Holiday inn Express, because of my familiarity with the place, and it's more economical price than the other two hotels mentioned.

Location-the hotel is located near a popular intersection that has an outback steakhouse, a cracker barrel, a Publix supermarket, a first watch restaurant for breakfast, and an entertainment complex with the movie theater. There's even a bass pro shop nearby should you need Beach equipment. One good thing about its location is that you can walk to the beach which is about three short blocks away. So you don't even have to move your car.

Hotel-the hotel itself was clean, and rather basic, but quite comfortable. The parking lot is kind of small, but there seems to be space in the strip mall next door.

During a recent birthday trip, we stayed at this Holiday Inn location.
I had requested a lower level room because I was pregnant and didn’t want to use the elevator. The hotel made sure I was on the first floor, and the breakfast host, “Andrea” was very kind and accommodating as well. The location is PERFECT. It’s a 5 minute walk to the beach and within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The rooms were clean and the whole staff was masked. I was very impressed and would return again.

We have stayed in several IHG properties and have been pleased with each. The only good things I can say about this particular Holiday Inn is that the staff here was super friendly, the bed comfortable, and breakfast distribution (with COVID rules) very efficient. The furniture in the rooms was old and the loveseat stained. There was only one small elevator and it opened right by the cleaning closet. The cleaning closet door was open and you could see the towels, cleaning solutions, and other things were in total disarray, including things on the floor. The cleaning carts were out in the hallway making navigating the hallway very difficult. The room smelled of smoke, yet it said all rooms were non-smoking. I was extremely uncomfortable and did not want to stay when we first came in, but we had no choice as there was no where else to go before our vacation rental home was ready. This room was very expensive (we even had the IHG reward discount) costing the same we paid for the IHG Crowne Plaza in Rome, Italy (over $300 for one night!). We will not stay here again. We did not get what we paid for.

Thank you for your candid review. I would like to start by apologizing for your stay not meeting your expectations. We are 100% non smoking hotel however sometimes people do not follow rules and smoke. We do charge an extra $150 to someone and then the room goes out of order for a few days and has extra cleaning done. I really am sorry if the room may have had a smokey smell to it. I am pleased you still found the staff to be wonderful. But would like to also apologize for any inconveniences due to the cleaning carts. I will share your comments with my team in order to provide better service in the future. Sincerely, Andrea B. AGM

The hotel was great but the front desk clerk was rude. I was checking out and asked for 2 bottled waters. The lady said they didn’t offer bottle water and told us to go to the vending machine. The day before when we checked in the lovely ladies working the front desk offered us bottled waters and told us if we needed more to come on down. So I don’t understand why we were told no to water the following day. I felt discriminated against. The lady working the front desk on 2-2-2020 needs to be looked into.

Thank you for your candid review of our hotel. I would like to apologize for the rudeness of the front desk staff the morning of your check out. We do not usually supply bottles of waters for our guests but have been giving them at check in for our Rewards members. We do have vending machines to purchase water from but if a guests comes up and requests to have a bottle of water and in your situation we do give them out and you should have been given one. I am so sorry for the inconvenience this may have caused. I will share your comments with my team in order to provide better service in the future. We do hope you would give us another chance in the future to show you that your stay was an exception. Sincerely, Andrea B. AGM

Beware!!! The hotel staff made unauthorized $50 charge to our bill AFTER they gave us our receipt that was left under our room door. We had no idea until we checked our bank statement the next day. Another couple we know who stayed there said they were charged $50 for early check in but they were told that upfront. We were NEVER asked nor told there would be an extra fee for checking in an hour early and we would not have agreed to it. If that’s why we were charged the extra $50, then we should’ve been given a $50 credit for checking out early too, since we left by 8am! What a scam!!! Anyone staying here needs to ask for another bill at the front desk on your way out and not rely on the one they slip under your door. Total scam!

We recently had a two-day stay at the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Destin E - Commons Mall Area, and it was a perfect spot for our little beach getaway!

Our room was clean and comfortable, with all the essentials we needed for our stay. It wasn't the biggest, but perfectly adequate for a two-night trip.

This hotel is a great choice for anyone looking for a convenient and affordable location near the beach and shopping. The staff was friendly, the breakfast was good, and the room was clean. We would definitely recommend it to others!

We spent five nights at this hotel for my husband's 50th birthday. The staff is friendly, the room is clean, the bed comfortable, and the location is perfect! Three blocks to the right is the beach and one block to the left is all kinds of food and shopping options. We will definitely stay here when we visit Destin again.

Average hotel, be aware they use fragrances on their sheets and pillow covers. Smells really bad and for those who have allergies, you should avoid this hotel. Also this place is under renovation, their tv's are not mounted to the wall. They sit on the desk.dresser

Just an ordinary Holiday Inn Express. We arrived late at night. Given room as far away from elevator on third floor. We ended up dragging all our luggage up the stairs. No mention of our IHG Rewards Club Elite status. The front desk clerk was not very personable or welcoming. Made me feel like I was a bother to her.
Breakfast was decent given the CoVid situation with some hot food choices. Would most likely look elsewhere if ever in the area again. Just did not feel very welcome or appreciated here.

No I am sorry but we are not located directly on the beach. We are 2 blocks from the public beach access and only takes between 5-10 minutes to walk.

I would say no. The queens are a little small. There was no pull out couch in our room either.
