Perfect for our trip. Extremely clean and comfortable room. Nice pool and there was a nice beach entrance directly across the street. It’s our favorite beach with beautiful white sand an crystal clear emerald water we have visited quite a few in Florida.. We have been coming to Desti.n for 40 years. This is the first time we were able to find a vacancy at the Beachside Inn , but we will definitely be back. Close to shopping and our favorite place to eat Dewey’s on the Bay.

Loved the service, when the pass code wasn't working at first the staff there was polite and super helpful in getting it fixed and it was done really fast. Location was amazing, It was nice and quiet and even took a night stroll to get some snacks and was relaxing hearing the ocean that was just across the street. Beds were comfortable and water pressure was nice and the shower was large. Also loved the little Cafe attached on the corner, they had great coffee and was a great start to wake up to and have a stroll on the beach.
While the room was nice it was quite echoey and bare. Just a personal thing to be honest, kind of wish was a bit more warm and inviting. However I was glad that there wasn't carpet as it was much easier to clean off the sand.

The rooms were clean and attractive.
The only downside was that sound traveled easily from outside.

Location of the beach across the walkway. Center of all the action in town.
No breakfast and nighttime dinner took a lot of parking space from hotel.

I recently stayed at Beachside Inn and the first thing I can say is WOW!!!!!!! This amazing property has everything you need. You are right across the street from the gulf with a restaurant and café on location. You are walking distance from other amazing restaurants and shops. The rooms are beautifully done. They did a great job on the renovations!! I loved the shower pressure in my room. Everything was top notch! Especially the customer service. Hind, Kellie and Angi do an amazing job. ?? I will definitely be back!

Really enjoyed my experience at Destin's Beachside Inn. My room was very comfortable and clean. With exra touches like coffee and an amazing fresh loaf of breakfast bread that really started my first morning off right. A fabulous restaurant right there. Pleasant pool area overlooking gulf. And a wonderful little breakfast/lunch cafe as well. Staff was great. Very friendly and helpful.

This is our 2nd time to stay at the Beachside Inn in Destin. Our stay was wonderful. Our room was nice and clean. The staff at check-in was friendly and informative about the weather (it had been storming all day on the check in day but the following day was projected to be beautiful). We love this hotel because it is family-friendly and has quick beach access. We had no complaints about noise or trash. We have decided that this hotel will be our "go to" place to stay in Destin. We love it and can't wait to visit again!

With a location that is close to most attractions and across an easily crossed street the beachside inn is perfect for that long weekend. The attached restaurant "Camille's" is good, but that is a double edged sword. If after a day at the beach you don't feel like going out for dinner you can eat there and not feel like you have missed out. On the other hand it is good so it's popular and if you do go out your taking a gamble on if you have a spot to park when you get back. That is the only problem we have had in 7 years of staying here and really it's not much of an issue.

Very nice room, good housekeeping service, clean and crisp room! Very easy access to the beach..just cross the street! Restaurant has good food. The front cafe has all kinds of goodies for breakfast and lunch. Great fruity sangria! Easy parking. Also close to shopping malls and Cracker Barrell if you want to drive out for a big breakfast.
This was our first time in Destin and we were extremely pleased with this little beach town and gorgeous beach. We will be back!

Thank you so much for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! We can't wait to see you next time! Thanks again, Kellie Hudson-Innkeeper
Très bon rapport qualité-prix.
Appartement très propre.Literies confortables.
Les 'moins': multiples chiens + 1 paon bruyants jour et nuit. Douche petite. Accueil par la mère de l'annonceur ne parlant que le portugais, ce qui impacte un peu l'aspect convivial.Mais l'annonceur à toujours répondu en francais à nos demandes via mails et textos, et en anglais par téléphone.
Le logement est vraiment super. Nous y avons passés d'excellentes vacances. Nazaré est pleine de charme et les commerçants souvent initiés à la langue française.

This is my 3rd or 4th stay at the Beachside Inn. This time I was greeted with delicious Breakfast loaf and an escort to my room by the manager to ensure everything was in place and working well. The pool was wonderful as was the restaurant. Walked across the street and took a nice long walk on the beautiful beach and watched the sunset. My only complaint is that I was not able to stay longer!

We arrived in Destin one day early of checking into our condo and our realtor set us up at this Inn. It was very roomy and clean. It had a Nice upgraded bathroom with a roomy vanity, a small fridge and microwave along with a small table and chairs ... and the bed was one of the most comfortable beds that me and my husband have ever slept on!! It is also pet friendly which frightened us a little but the floors are tiled and the baseboards are white so you know and feel that it is sanitary! It has a very nice outside pool and Jacuzzi. And then to top it all it has a fabulous restaurant right down the porch's walkway! And the desk clerk Peggy was very sweet! So would I recommend this place?~~You Bet! :) ~~ A couple from N.C.

Can't speak highly enough of this property. All other reviews were spot on. Somethings not mentioned in the other reviews (or I missed) that were pleasant surprises was the refrigerator and microwave and the lovely loaf of cranberry bread from a local bakery. Will stay again next year.

Since I booked last minute I was desperate to find a place that allows pets and didn't require me to book a week. When I came upon Beachside Inn I wasn't blown away by the way it looked from the outside but the reviews were great so I booked 3 nights with them. It was the weekend of July 4th so the rates were high but we were very pleased! Minutes away from the beach and the room was nice and comfortable. We will book with them again!

The Beachside Inn is located in a quite section of the Destin area. The staff are very nice, the rooms are clean. This is hardly a bed and breakfast by any stretch. The room's "mini kitchen" is a small refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and toaster. Breakfast is a loaf of good, fruit bread left in the room with a plastic knife - one per visit. Fresh coffee supplies were not provided for subsequent nights. We did get additional coffee from the front desk, but catch them early in the afternoon as the office closes before 6. Parking can be an issue in the evening as the adjacent restaurant customers use the motel parking lot. The bed is comfortable,hot water and pressure adequate. The a/c is efficient. This is not an elaborate property, but is adequate for a couple of nights. Any longer stay and a condo would be a better option.

We took our teenage grandchildren during the school spring break. Arriving at 11:00 PM (pre-registered/paid) we found access extremely easy with a clean and comfortable room waiting. Being in our mid-seventies parking and room access was not an issue. There was plenty of dog walking space on the grounds and in the neighborhood for our dog. We found both the staff and other guests extremely friendly and accommodating in the family oriented facility. While not on the beach, one had to simply cross a safe two lane road with little traffic to miles of beach 24 hours a day. We let safe and secure in the hotel and the surrounding neighborhood. The two pools and hot tub (some what small) were pleasant to use, especially when some strong winds because of the protecting shoulder-high walls. We found the cost extremely reasonable; given the atmosphere, accommodations, friendliness, service and access to the beach a real bargain! Not only have we highly recommended Beachside Inn to friends and colleagues but we plan to return in our future visits to the area.

We could tell that the new owners had improved the property from our stay 2 years ago. Nice colors and fresh paint. Housekeeping was improved too for the week we had stayed. We really enjoyed it!!
We did recommend it to a friend that stayed there a month before we arrived in Sept 2013.

The hotel is very nice. Not fancy, but clean, comfortable and well equipped. Very nice pool and right across the street from beach access. The staff is first rate. Only downside was the noise. The afternoon I arrived, they were mowing and blowing. Don't understand why it was required that they blow the sidewalk in front of my door 3 times in 15 minutes. They also allow pets and it seemed that about half the rooms had dogs in them so there was some barking. All in all, I'd stay again.

Just back from a 5 night stay at the Beachside Inn. The location is awesome! Across a quiet street from the most beautiful beach in the us. Close to great shopping and plenty of places to eat, get groceries etc. Beds were extremely comfortable! Wish they had more comfortable seating instead of just 2 hard wood chairs and a table. Rooms were clean. Suggest getting room away from resturaunt end due to some noise in the evenings. Parking can be an issue until it closes about 10p. We were there at spring break and they do not rent to young adults which is very nice. Included continental breakfast was ok. We would go back if it were just the two of us. For a family I would recommend a condo. Location is wonderful!!!

We chose this place because it is sooo quaint! We got married right across the street at the beach under the pavillion. Of course our original plans were to be barefoot in the sand, but there was a huge, electrifying thunderstorm right at ceremony time. No problem! The girls at The Beachside Inn are so wonderfully accommodating that they helped with a back up plan just in case this happened. This place is so clean and our room was adorably prepared for our wedding night. I love this place. Kelly and Peggy are awesome. I can not wait to go back. Thank you Kelly and Peggy!!!

Though this is an older property, the rooms were all freshly remodeled. With 3 options for eating on the property, we enjoyed a lovely coffee shop for breakfast, sussi bar and Camille's for dinner. All offered a variety of wonderful entrees.

Cute hotel and service very good. Loved the easy access to beach and easy walk to our son's house on Barracuda. Loved the quite surroundings in October!!
If it was in the comfirmation e-mail that we needed a code to open lock box after hours, I missed that, however someone else opened it to get their room key, so no problem but I would suggest making that very clear to other newcomers. Also, short hours for front desk help and she was very good when we were there in the day but we were gone with family several days all day long and was not open yet the morning we left on 10/9.
When we changed rooms to get a king bed, room 106 did not have a seal on bottom of outside door so was somewhat noisy. (Didn't see that seal was half torn off til day we left.)
Good experience and will stay there again.
Food was good at Carmilla's but even though there were a lot of empty tables, hostess sat us in a noisy spot by the door initially.

Wireless Internet situation is a Deal-breaker. This was a working vacation and I could not work in my room. Service was intermittent but mostly disconnected. Peggy had to open guests rooms over and over again to reset routers - tooo unprofessional, even for a mom & pop establishment. Things needed in room: hooks in bathroom for swimsuits and wet towels; door jamb so big heavy door would remain open while loading and unloading items from room, power strip so coffee, toaster and microwave could run at same time (and have a place to charge phone/ipad, etc without laying them on floor or climbing behind bed - maybe in tv cabinet). Great restaurant; cool coffee/wine shop w/continental bfst included; quick access to all maor shopping; walk across street to Crystal Beach where my family stays but loved having my privacy - and no 7 day minimum.

We've been staying at the Beachside Inn since my child was 4 and he's now 15! I love the place because it is very convenient to everything most especially to the beach.

Perfect location...right across the street from the beach. Staff was exceptional...very cordial and helpful. Rooms were much better than chain...very clean and neat. Good outdoor (or indoor) restaurant on the corner. Will be staying there again. They have a few rooms for pets, so they have to be OK people.

The room was as cleaner that you would expect after having people walking from the beach right to their room. We really appreciated the fridge provided. The staff was knowledgeable regarding local seafood markets. The only draw back was the bed. It was an odd combination of sinking into a memory foam but firm.
Loved it. Great location. We are hoping to return with friends next year.

The service we received from Mrs. Jessica was above and beyond ! She is a very polite person . She had answers to all of our questions! We loved the condo, it was very homey and comfortable. As I said it is the perfect location to shop ,eat , or to walk across to the beach ! We will definitely come back every year!!! The only thing if I had to say was a problem was people in upstairs room were very noisy . But again it's vacation and I'm not complaining about any of that because we enjoyed it anyway ! I'm sure that's what they were there for also !!

Could not have been better for us. Location was excellent, the perfect distance to the beach and stores. The restaurant on property was truly 5-star.

Visiting the Beach Side Inn is an outstanding pleasant experience. Our dog is welcomed and for us that brings us peace of mind. The innkeeper takes special pains to make us comfortable with Fresh Flowers in our room. Daily maid service that is above average. Continental Breakfast with. Home made over sized muffins and pastry. coffee & fresh Orange juice. The rooms have a decided English country air along with the flower boxes and hanging plantings that trim the balconies. Enjoyed the pools and hot tub. Did not want to leave. For a vacation of this quality with the luxury of a beautiful Beach. The inkeepers are the hostess with the mostest. This is an Island type of vacation without expense of leaving the Good old USa. For an affordable,comfortable, pampered stay.

This was my family's 2nd stay at the Beachside Inn and it was just as good as the first time around.

The room was always clean upon our return in the afternoon.

We were only there for one night, but the service was very friendly. The room was nice, clean and spacious. The location was great. It was right across the street from the beach and this area was very quiet at the time. I will definitely look this location up again if I come back to the area.

We knew the location from previous visits. Just needed a room for a couple of nights prior to access to another house rental.Room was clean and very nice.No big issues there. Wireless internet was medium at best. Was not very stable and access was intermittent. This is a very important service to us. We both require access for work and also personal contacts.We did not get room service. Had to get towels ourselves and then desk lady came down and got trash. This was also not a huge deal to my wife and I.Lastly,friends stayed in room one night as well.They paid $40 less per night than us. They stayed one night, we stayed two.You tell me? Not good business practice. A few dollars difference is no big deal, but $40/night, gets my attention. Desk person never offered to reduce rate.I guess you take what you can get, huh. Location is a wonderful spot and we have eaten at Camilles many times and will probably continue to do so. The next time I attempt to stay here though,negotiations will be a bit more detailed.

Starting at the front desk ..friendly and helpful. The lobby was clean and brochures with all the local activities available. The hours to the restaurant was explained and recommended by the desk clerk. I did not use it but the coffee shop was good with plenty of choices of coffee and pastries.
The room ...clean, new paint, large and everything worked. Slight issue with internet but resolved quickly by the friendly lady at the front desk. One complaint....the room smelled a little musty at first then around 2:00 in the morning the room freshener wore off and it was obvious previous smokers had used the room. Our friend in a pet friendly room did not have that issue. It was a very slow weekend so could not tell if it would be noisy. Not convenient for walking everywhere unless you like walking neighborhoods (which I didn't mind) However it was a close walk to the beach, which was not crowded. The sunrise and sunset was magical. The price was acceptable for the time of year. I would stay here again..but take air freshener!!!

I loved the big room, 10 ft ceilings and having a door to the dressing area. It took 2 minutes to walk to the beach (which had a picnic area, bathrooms and showers). Our first vacation without the kids, had a wonderful time. Absolutely will stay there again.

With Eunice so efficiently helping me with my reservation, including 12 rooms, dinner reservations for 38, and all of the details for the memorial weekend for my Mom, I knew we had chosen the perfect place. Eunice does a terrific job to make the traveler feel important, comfortable, and welcome from booking the reservation through checkout. Anything we needed during our stay was taken care of by "just asking Eunice". The rooms were very pretty, with such comfy and quality linens, and no amenity was missing. The coffee shop was great and the restaurant (and Chris Knight and his kind and friendly staff!) did a superb job serving us all and putting up with the confusion and excitement that comes with that many people. Your location is great for a quick walk to the beautiful beach and the walkway and showers made it even easier.
Thank you ALL for EVERYTHING...WE WILL BE BACK!!!

This really is a motel, but the rooms were clean the location to the beach was excellent for the price. A small cafe makes light breakfasts and lunches easy, and the beach access is right across where they have public showers to wash your feet. Overall a nice place.

My wife and I agreed that this was a great spot for our first vacation to Destin. The beach was very accessible--we could carry all of our things across the street (a street that is not very busy on that end). The cafe had great danishes for breakfast each day and we found the hotel to be pretty centrally located--very close to the beach and easy to get out to the main road for restaurants or attractions. It's a pretty small hotel, which we liked because it was not noisy and we didn't constantly hear doors slamming like you do in the bigger hotels.

This is a great, reasonably priced (for Destin)motel.
We stayed with our 15 month old son and we had a great time!. The beach is literally right across the street with great access, a little pavilian with bathrooms and tables. Theres no long walk to get to the water (which is great if you know how much stuff a toddler needs to carry to the beach!)
The hotel was neat and clean, the pool looked great (unfortunately we arrived during a rare cold spell in April - so did'nt get to use the pool - but we didi use the hottub! NICE & hot!)
We would deffinately recommend and stay again.
