Where to Stay in Destin

Having never visited Destin before, choosing where to stay can be one of your most difficult tasks. With over 13,000 rooms available, making a selection that is right for you can be daunting, to say the least.  For more information, see our recent blog post…

Here are a few things to consider:

Beachfront properties:

  • Most beachfront properties in the city of Destin are vacation rentals rather than hotels. 
  • Many of the beaches in Destin are private and accessed only by the adjacent vacation rental visitors and owners. See public beaches…
  • If you prefer a hotel rather than a vacation rental, you will have more options in Ft. Walton Beach which is a short 15-minute drive west.
  • Miramar Beach is 15 minutes to the east and has two beachfront luxury resorts as well as several vacation rentals.

Since most vacation rentals are privately owned, the interior design can range greatly from room to room, even in the same resort. This will take a bit of research to find something that meets your travel needs.

Staying on a Budget

  • If you’re traveling on a budget, you may want to consider staying a block or two off of the beach. Hampton Inn and Suites is near Henderson Beach State Park with plenty of nearby amenities. Fairfield Inn and Suites is across the street from Henderson Beach State Park. It is walking distance to the beach if you have a beach wagon for toting all your essentials. Best to drive over if you have small kids. Check rates...
  • If you’re really watching your budget, Extended Stay America may be a better choice for you. It is very close to James Lee Beach Park and Crystal Shores Public Beach access points.
