I got this hotel through Priceline’s express deals. After booking I found the hotel to be cheaper on the hotel’s website. Was able to get a small refund through Priceline due to that.
The hotel’s room was clean, I always check beds and bathroom for hair first. There is a small fridge, microwave, and keurig style coffee maker. The a/c was cold and provided the right amount of noise so I could sleep. I travel with a sound machine but didn’t need it. Beds were comfy with 4 pillows per bed. The only issues I had was the shower head wasn’t great, sprayed on the sides but not the middle. The shower drain was slow to drain. The plug in the bathroom did not work. They don’t provide many complementary toiletries so bring your own if needed. There was a small bar of soap, one shampoo, and lotion. We were on the third floor right across from the elevator. It only bothered us once when a young kid was being loud. We faced the back of the hotel with no balcony access. We did not use the pool, gym, or get breakfast. We were told breakfast was grab and go due to the current situation. Overall it wasn’t a bad stay. The do have luggage carts and parking was not an issue.

This is a budget hotel , I gave it 4 stars for being that. Check in was easy and room was available at 3pm although check in is at 4pm. Room was clean and smelled fine. There is age showing , couch is old with some wear and tear , bathroom soap dish cracked. You get 2 towels which was fine for us. Bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was packed each morning so we skipped. My husband did say the coffee is great. They got a cute snack area that you can purchase beer , candy or a toiletrie you might of forgot. You might want to ask for a room farther away from the fun zone next store. We were the closest room to it and you can hear it if u try. But it did close at 9 while we were there and wasn’t an issue. Overall an enjoyable experience and for the price you can’t beat it. The beach is directly across the street but u do need to drive it but it’s a very nice beach , great for sunsets. A ton of restaurants close by , the back porch restaurant has great views from every table right on the beach if u want to splurge.

SummerPlace was a good value for what we paid for a five-night stay. All the staff I talked with were pleasant and helpful. The room did initially have a bit of strong smell, I think from cleaning products, but we got used to it right away. I am not a big breakfast eater, and the breakfast was fine for me, although I didn't care for the scrambled eggs. Although the pools are rather small, there is a heated indoor pool and an outdoor pool, which my kids enjoyed (the heated indoor). So although it worked for my family, if you want a 4+ star hotel, this is not your place.

I will say the location is nearly ideal for everything we did in Destin. There is cool go kart track/arcade/mini golf place next door (3 tracks actually, we rode on all 3), and there were two restaurants we easily walked to (we recommend the Back Porch, and it's on the beach), and we even walked to the beach from the hotel (although not carrying all the beach chairs, umbrella, etc).

My wife and I stayed here 10+ years ago and it was very nice. We booked again and we were given a room on the far left side on the 4th floor near “The Track” and it was horrible. You would think that during the Covid-19 / Coronavirus time they would clean the rooms better. The first thing I noticed was how filthy the lamps, ceiling fans and bulb covers were in the room. The next thing was the bathroom floor. The shower curtain was short and water got in the floor after my shower. I cleaned up water with my used towel and it was disgustingly dirty and full of hair after I picked it up. I decided to just clean the whole floor. Also there were hand prints everywhere.

Get ready to listen to the go carts at the track run until late late in the evening. Probably not as bad on left side of hotel.

The biggest issue I had was a light that shined directly into our room all night. So bright that I woke up at 3:30 and thought the sun was up. The curtains do not even block out all the light because they do not cover the whole window. You can also see the filth on the windows that have not been cleaned in a long time with that light shining in.

We won’t be back.

Stayed here Thursday, July 28, 2022, through Saturday, July 30, 2022. Hotel was clean and front desk personnel was polite. On the main drag in Destin so of course it is extremely noisy. It is also located beside "The Track" and you hear go carts and whistle blowing until late night. You could also hear doors slamming at all hours. Hotel was full and with only 1 elevator you had a long wait to get downstairs. Free breakfast was a draw, but the dining area was small, and it was hard to get a table. Limited items - eggs, sausage and you could make your own waffle and toast. We ate the first morning but skipped it the second morning.

There was an indoor and outdoor pool, but both were so small it was hard to get in and swim due to the number of guests. The hot tub was luke warm at best and was nasty.

If and when we return to the area, we would not stay here again.

Gosh where to start. My husband and and I had a very important Retirement Party to attend and after driving 6 hours we got to our original hotel which turned out to be a disaster. The people weren't nice, room wasn't ready, we were told to leave and come back.
Well, with only a couple hours left until the party I quickly went online to find a hotel in the same price range. This awesome hotel came up with a fantastic weekend rate. I reserved it! We raced over to the hotel which had a warm welcome from Alex and Kristina.
They were soooo amazing. I didn't notice that check in wasn't until 4 so as soon as I seen the sign I started panicking. Alex stepped right in and put us in a different room (because I accidentally picked a disability capable room) within 10 mins we were upstairs getting all ready for our party.
Not only were the employees extremely professional, caring, and lifesavers.....but the room was great. Clean. We had a great view. The amenities there are amazing even though we didn't use all of them. They offered breakfast and a huge selection of it at that.
We definitely recommend this hotel!
Thank you again Alex and Kristina. Also to Jenny the GM for having outstanding employees

SummerPlace Inn Destin is a great stay. We booked for 3 nights, even with a packed hotel, plenty of parking and no disturbance from neighbors above/below or beside. The front desk staff was courteous, Curtis in particular was very polite! Breakfast offered a few hot items (eggs, sausage, make your own waffle) as well as some cold/ grab and go items (muffins, bagels, english muffins, yogurt, cereal). The location is great for dining, entertainment and shopping however there is no ocean view.

We sere shocked and felt uncomfortable that during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, not a single hotel staff member wore a mask at any time during our visit. During a global pandemic, the hotel's priority should be to keep guests safe, and this property showed a total hygiene fail: no masks, no indication of extra cleaning/sanitation protocols, no contactless check-in, nothing. If stores in the area have mask-wearing employees, why can't the hotel? The hotel itself was attractive enough and offered a good rate for a central location (if you don't mind driving everywhere). I liked the guest room decor and bath amenities, too. But I wouldn't stay again just based on their lack of concern for guest safety.

Horrible experience! The room wreaked with a strong pungent smell of smoke. This was advertised as a smoke free property. My wife is allergic to smoke so we complained to the front desk and they came and sprayed the room the room with "odor ban." We were restless all night. We asked for a refund so that we could go to another hotel but we were denied. The guy at the desk was extremely rude and the hotel manager was also very insensitive and condescending. The sofa was torn and the phone in the room went in and out. Also, there is only one tiny cramped little sweat box that they refer to as an elevator. We usually stay at a brand hotel but we were here for Memorial Day weekend and wanted to stay an extra night so we took a chance on this "knock-off" hotel. Overall this was the absolute worst hotel experience that we've ever had! WARNING: Please do not book this hotel.

This hotel is exactly like the pictures they have posted on their website. The staff is fantastic. Daily breakfast was good. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate was offered all day long in the lobby which was very nice. Hotel is very clean, and room smelt wonderful. Hotel is pet friendly which is a bonus. Hotel is walking distance to the beach. Would definitely come back and stay again.
