Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Summerplace Inn

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person. This is the most recent visit:
"You Will LOVE This Destin Gem!"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Summerplace Inn is a unique property: bigger than your average inn, more intimate than a big box hotel; close to everything, but far from the tourist traps. This hotel has a vibrant young staff ready to assist you with your stay. Every morning they serve a deluxe continental breakfast to get your day started. You can walk to the beach, or sit by their outdoor pool. Rainy weather can't stop the fun...they also have an indoor pool! Sports families will appreciate that the hotel is adjacent to the Track Family Recreation Center. The rooms are well decorated and maintained. You will love the Summerplace Inn and will understand why year after year, families make this their DESTIN-ation! The ONLY reason this hotel was not awarded 4 points was because it is limited service.

"Slightly Above Average."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Our hotel experience was slightly above average, but not extraordinary. The breakfast was only an extended continental breakfast and we were under the impression it was a full breakfast. The rooms were generally good, but we did find a hot dog bun under the bed of one of the rooms that had apparently been there for a little while. One room also had a telephone that did not work. We were with a group that had rented 13 rooms and the rooms were good as to appearance. The hotel is in a great location and convenient to many venues in the area. Overall, the lodging was good and would possibly stay again if we are in the area.

Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. We appreciate your recent stay at the SummerPlace Inn. We do advertise a hot deluxe continental breakfast and often rotate a hot item everyday. Hot breakfast items range from Hot waffles, sausage biscuits & gravy, or sausage & eggs. Overall, we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and will consider us again. We will make sure that your next visit is better than ordinary!
