Bottom Line

The Carillon Beach Inn is a 70-room, all-suite property with modern furnishings and sharp decor located on Lake Carillon in a sprawling, village-like resort complex. While the location doesn't offer direct beach access, the sand is less than a five-minute walk away, and guests get access to the many amenities of the Carillon Beach resort community. Suites are immaculately clean and comfortable with kitchenettes featuring stainless steel appliances. Cute, playful touches include sand dollar and fish-patterned pillows and chairs. Some suites have lovely fireplaces and outdoor private Jacuzzis, while all are equipped with flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. While there are few options for nearby off-site dining, Sweet Taste Wine Bar is located within the property.

Carillon Beach Resort Inn


In a quiet, residential resort community off I-98

Carillon Beach Inn sits off I-98 in a quiet pedestrian-friendly resort community, about 40 minutes outside of Pensacola and Destin. The resort complex, really more like a small village, includes several condo complexes, a small shopping center, a beach club, park, and the 13-acre Lake Carillon. Guests will have to venture outside the community to experience more dining, retail, and amusement options.

The Florida Panhandle, also called Florida's Emerald Coast, is known for its amazing beaches stretching several hundred miles along the Gulf of Mexico.
