Review Summary


  • Excellent location overlooking Destin Harbor
  • Close proximity to local attractions such as HarborWalk Village
  • Big outdoor pool with views of the harbor
  • All rooms have private balconies
  • Free wine on Wednesday nights and free champagne on Friday nights
  • Free continental breakfast and daily newspapers
  • Narrow, but sandy strip of beach for sunbathing


Bottom Line

The 70-room Inn on Destin Harbor is showing its age, though it does have some appealing features including nice balconies with views of Destin Harbor and free drinks on certain nights. The central location -- near local spots like HarborWalk Village -- is convenient, and freebies include continental breakfast and daily newspapers. The outdoor pool with harbor views is a perk, and a narrow strip of beach is available for sunbathing. Rooms are older and quite basic, and bathrooms are tiny, but the property is well maintained; the hotel completed a deep cleaning in early 2012 and gave the building a fresh coat of paint.

Directly on Destin Harbor

Map of Inn on Destin Harbor

The Inn on Destin Harbor is centrally located in Destin's Historic Downtown Harbor District, tucked directly on the harbor itself. It's within walking distance of Florida's biggest charter boat fleet, dolphin cruises, and HarborWalk Village -- a waterfront shopping center featuring restaurants, live music, boutiques, and water sports. It's also near top-notch restaurants Marina Cafe, Destin Chops Steakhouse, and A.J.'s. Although Destin, the Florida Panhandle's main tourist destination, is a hot spot for beach dwellers, the Inn on Destin Harbor itself resides in an older neighborhood, with many buildings in the local area showing their age.
