Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Independently owned, eco-friendly hotel
  • Decent-sized outdoor pool with lounge chairs and indoor pool
  • Rooms have 32-inch flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
  • Free daily continental breakfast
  • Tiny fitness center with 2 treadmills
  • Convenient work desks with ergonomic chairs

Cons

  • No direct beach access
  • Some worn furniture
  • Right off highway
  • $30 pet fee
  • Beds have comforters, not duvets

Bottom Line

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.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

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.

  • Just over a mile's drive from Destin Airport
  • 73-minute drive from Panama City-Bay County International Airport
  • 90-minute drive from Pensacola Regional Airport
  • Less than a mile's drive to Big Kahuna's water park
  • 5-minute drive to Henderson Beach State Park
  • 10-minute drive to area restaurants
  • 15-minute drive to outlet shopping at Silver Sands or Destin Commons

 Bottom Line

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.
