Across the street from Destin Beach
Located across the street from Destin Beach in Okaloosa County, Comfort Inn Destin offers close proximity to fishing docks, shopping, and restaurants. It's within walking and driving distance of attractions like Silver Sands Outlet, Kelly Plantation golf, and Henderson Beach State Park, which features 6,000 feet of white sand shoreline along the Gulf of Mexico. This beach and fishing community is known as the "World's Luckiest Fishing Village" and is popular among vacationers for its white-sand beaches and multitude of fishing fleets.
The Comfort Inn Destin's 100 rooms don't stray from the hotel chain mold. Rooms are clean with private balconies, mini-fridges, and microwaves, but decor is outdated and beds are topped with comforters, not duvets. Excellent freebies include Wi-Fi, a hot breakfast, and daily newspaper. The outstanding feature of the hotel is a big outdoor pool surrounded by palm trees, and there is also an indoor pool and fitness center. But the hotel is not located directly on the beach (it's across the street), and some guests complain of highway noise.
