On a highway in Destin
The SummerPlace Inn is located in Destin, one of Florida's most popular tourist destinations and home to one of the state's biggest fishing fleets. The inn is located next to a major highway, which guests must cross to reach the beach. It's also next to a go kart track and fun center.
The Florida panhandle, also called Florida's Emerald Coast, is known for its beautiful beaches stretching several hundred miles along the Gulf of Mexico.
The 72-room SummerPlace Inn in Destin has the look and feel of any number of chain hotels scattered along the Florida Panhandle, but it is actually an independently owned property. British-Colonial style rooms are priced friendlier than at nearby resorts, and the hotel has eco-friendly policies. Perks include a free daily breakfast, two pools, and free Wi-Fi, but some guests complain about the lack of direct beach access.
