Overall this hotel has an excellent location, but has a few issues. While on a weekend vacation with my family we encountered a few issues that I'm not accustomed to when staying at Marriott properties. The internet TV would not work in the room and after reporting it and their guy coming to try to fix it, he was not successful so we were limited to what we could watch on tv at night. The HVAC in our room was leaking water badly on the floor the last evening of our stay and we were only inches away from it soaking one of our suitcases so that could have been a bad experience, but got lucky. Also one of the night we had some neighbors both above us and next door that were very loud and hitting the doors and floor where for over an hour it was very unpleasant and not what I'm use to at a Marriott property as well. My final issue was with the outside pool. It was on the greenish side and needed a good cleaning. The inside pool was fine and ended up swimming there instead, but would expect better pool maintenance for a Marriott hotel. Now for the good. The breakfasts were good and they used products that had good flavor and many name branded items saving us on having to go our and eat breakfast. They had a little bit of something for everyone and the gentleman manning the breakfast area was attentive and nice and handle any and all requests quickly. The ladies at the front desk were friendly and welcoming too and appreciated that as well. Overall the room was fine other than the issues stated above, but I didn't sleep great and woke up most mornings with mild back pain, but I've grown accustomed to that when sleeping at hotels. The hotel is right across the road from Henderson Beach, but you can't walk over there and have to drive your vehicle and pay the $6 to access the beach there. The hotel is also within walking distance to Walmart and a couple smaller restaurants like Wingstop. There are plenty of restaurants in the area as well. I would return to this hotel due to it's location and overall acceptable stay, but I was expecting more from the Fairfield by Marriott and they do have some things they could improve on.

This is one of the cleanest hotels we have stayed at. Everywhere you looked they were cleaning and disinfecting. The rooms are a little dated, but spotless. They were very cautious with breakfast service and went out of their way to make everyone feel comfortable. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is across the highway from a state park with fabulous beach access.

We booked a Gulf view suite with sofa bed on hotels.com. But when we checked in, we got a Gulf view suite with no sofa bed. Talked to the front desk and they said there was an error on the hotels.com order. Called hotels.com and they confirmed their error and got a rebate from them for the price difference.

The location of the hotel is nice. Across the street is a park, so you can have at least a partial view of the ocean, even though there's a road in between. There's a Walmart within walking distance. And the mall is a short drive away.

They were doing outside construction while we were there. Generally, it was unobtrusive, but we did see a lot of ants in our bathroom. Guessing they were looking for a new home with all the ground being dug up outside.

Having a Gulf view does have a drawback since the road noise is pretty loud, no matter what time of the day it is. Glad they had good curtains to block the sun in the morning.

The manager, Jeff, was very attentive and helped out in areas wherever he could, including maintaining the breakfast area.

Room was nice overall, but wish there were a few more USB outlets, instead of just the ones on the clock.

Door to the back entrance was completely locked most of the time, so it was a bit inconvenient to always go out the front door to get to the back parking lot.

Overall, had a good stay with some small inconveniences.

Marriot platinum member w/ extensive domestic travel: Despite turndown services requested (you must opt in to housekeeping) no one came. Upon request we were told to come down and get the towels ourselves. Room smell slightly mildewed. Room was charged in advance through Marriott Bonvoy App despite there being no indications of that anywhere that I could see (I may have missed it).

Property is very well located and price is reasonable despite all this though. Based on the limited amount of available Marriott properties in this specific area and price range, I would probably come back.

Overall, the staff seemed to lack a “give a ****” which, if fixed, would make it a mid 4/5. Anecdotally, friends in the area have said the same thing about the front desk when they have stayed here (no acknowledgement by staff upon entering the building).

It was just a one night stay but it was perfect. The room was immaculate and everything worked perfectly (TV, microwave, a/c etc etc). The bed was medium firm (perfect for my sore back), the bedding was clean/fresh/crisp (not sure of the correct term for bedding). 3rd floor shower had good water pressure and the bathroom was spotless. The staff really knows their respective functions and performs them exceptionally well, check-in was less than 2 minutes, check-out was less than 10 seconds. The breakfast served was hot (and apparently unlimited) standard buffet breakfast style but..... everything was fresh..... no old fruit and no stale bread products. I know they're all little things but add them up; the stay was great.

This is a great hotel in a central Destin location. Our room was spacious, modern and well designed (lots of desk space/shelving for you to put your stuff) with a super comfortable bed and good bathroom. Although we paid less than $100 per night, there were lots of small touches (cookies at reception, plush linens) that made the hotel feel a little more luxurious than other hotels we have stayed at in this price point. This is highly recommended!

We booked this hotel for a wedding we were attending. We paid extra for a room with a balcony and gulf view. The gulf view was obstructed by trees and the balcony faced busy Emerald Parkway. Do not book these rooms for the extra cost. The road is extremely noisy. And just not worth the additional cost. The front desk staff is awesome. On arrival we met Jordan. Very pleasant and our room was ready early. We could not get onto the free WiFi and later were told we should have logged into the WiFi that said it cost $4.95 a day. It apparently is free once you put your room number in. Better instruction at check in would have been nice. On departure we met Angela Marie Paisley at the front desk. I had seen some ghost ants in the room. These are common in Florida but other guests may have been more upset. She was immediately apologetic and let's say she did the right thing. Breakfast was just okay. Location is good. Some things within walking distance.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your most recent stay. As you noticed when you were here, we are in the middle of completely revamping the exterior landscaping around the property as we complete our renovations inside and out. I apologize that the view was obstructed, that will be changing very soon.

I hope you will stay with us again when you are back in the area so that you might see the changes we will have completed and have a seamless experience we are committed to providing.

I stayed in a corner balcony room for 3 nights. The sofa & table/chairs were a little dated, but the room itself was quite nice, the bed was good, and everything worked. I was especially pleased with the shower.,. a small thing to note, but so many hotels have those wimpy "rain showers" and it's hard to feel clean. These showers were great.

People have criticized traffic & the "Gulf view" rooms. If they looked at the map they would see that the 6-lane Hwy 98 runs between the hotel & the Gulf. This is not a beach front hotel... but it also doesn't have the high beach front prices and it's convenient to everything.

During Spring Break & holidays I would not recommend the balcony rooms that face the highway... but there's no way I'd go anywhere near Destin during those times anyway!

Staff was professional, friendly and welcoming. Lobby, dining area and room were spotless. The dining server was especially professional in spite of covid requirements making her job more challenging. Housekeeping and front desk staff were spot on.
This hotel has some street noise, but is ideally located. Walk across the street to a State Park on the beach, minutes from any activity or dining you can hope for.
This hotel is now on our list of good places to stay when want to be near all the good stuff, but don't need to be directly on the beach.

I was in town for two nights visiting my father and booked the one bedroom king suite, just for myself. The room was very clean, the staff friendly, especially the breakfast attendant.

I was shocked when I came back to my room on the first day and my bed was made and towels replaced - that's an amenity I hadn't seen since before 2020.

I saved money not booking a room with a balcony or a view because the hotel looks over a highway before the park.

I took a short drive to the park and paid the $4 single person admission to walk the nature trail on the dunes and watch the sunset. The beach was lovely.

The best part of all is that my bed and pillows were really comfortable. I'd gladly return to this hotel.
