"Fantastic Hotel"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Apr 23, 2014

My family stayed at this LQ for a week in September to allow for attendance at a church convention in nearby Destin. Our church members were offered discounts at condos IN Destin, but they essentially required closer to a 10-day stay with long-term advanced reservation and an uncompromising deposit and payment schedule. I say that to say this....I hate feeling "controlled" by anything, especially my accommodations provider. Anyway, this LQ located on the main highway/street in the are and was really easy to find. We found the hotel to be immaculate complete with high-end finishes and beautiful furnishings. We were traveling from Texas and arrived in early evening after 12 hours on the road, so it was nice to be greeted by a super friendly and extremely helpful front desk agent. Ultimately, the agents acted as unofficial guides for the local "can't miss" attractions for us to see while in town. The entire staff was great and our overall stay was fantastic. There were 5 of us, so we required a cot. Initially, we were afraid we'd feel cramped with said extra accommodations, but it acted merely as additional seating when not in use by the sleeper. During our stay, we found out about the apartment on our floor that could easily accommodate larger family groups (7+ people) if needed. We never took the time for breakfast, but in passing, the area was large and offered a variety of warm eats. My only "complaint" at the time would be the struggle to connect my Apple devices. We were told upon check-in that it was a known issue, but there was a "work around". If nothing more, it was a bit of a let down only because I'd have a random idea and want to modify my business website and designs immediately and couldn't. Even so, I give this LQ 5 stars. Think about it....this is Florida!! You have beaches within a mile or two and unlimited adventure just across the bridge....put the laptop down and enjoy!! My family did and has absolutely no regrets :-)

"Great stay"

Although the price was a bit higher priced than I'd hoped for, I have no complaints about the hotel or the service. The front desk staff was very friendly and professional, and when checking in, we were given the type of room that we requested. There is a doggy area out back across the parking lot that even has poop bags and a garbage can in place which is great. It is fenced on 3 sides and is quite a ways from the street so it feels secure, but I couldn't help but think how great that it would be for dog owners if there was one more length of fence in place so that the puppies could be let off of the leash for a spell. That might be asking a bit much, but it wouldn't take much to accomplish and with all of the dog owners that stay there, I'm sure that it would be appreciated. With or without the extra fence, I'd stay here again anytime and would recommend it to anyone else as well.

We travel on business and stay at this LaQuinta Inn & Suites very frequently. We have only had a good experience staying there. The staff is awesome and the rooms are very spacious and clean. They have the best breakfast of any of the LaQuinta hotels that we have stayed in. We highly recommend this hotel for any enjoyable stay.

We usually travel with our dog and search out LaQuinta's for their pet policy since they are extremely pet friendly. Due to Florida's seasonality, the price for this trip was on the high side but still a great value compared to other hotels in the same area. As always the staff was helpful and smiling. The breakfast was on the thin side but adequate.

We spent two nights in a suite at this hotel. It was very clean and modern. The staff was pleasant and the views from our room were fantastic. We could see the sound and the gulf. It was very convenient to dining and just a short drive to the island beaches. I would recommend this hotel for anyone interested in exploring the area. We avoided some of the spring break craziness of Destin while still being able to enjoy the warm weather. There are many public access points to the beaches on the island so using the beach was not a problem.
