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.
