No bugs. Lied to about shuttle to harbor
The good: Wonderful view of the harbor, nice pool, the bed was amazing, the staff was helpful, no bugs The bad: the Main reason we stayed here was the free shuttle that was advertised and we were told about by staff multiple times and proximity to Harbor Village. What was advertised as a “free shuttle”, was non-existent… I feel we were lied to, as they didn’t run either of the days we stayed… very disappointing actually!!! We could have stayed closer and had no issues. The room was dated with a lot of the ceiling broken and missing. Breakfast was just meh but McDonald’s is close. Destin is always a favorite though.

Basic room, great view, great staff
Clean & basic. (No dresser or drawers for clothing.) The bed linens were very soft. The harbor view room was nice with a balcony. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Check it was quite a mess, they could not get the key cards to work, also my name and the number of days was wrong so they had to redo everything so we had to wait around 45 minutes to even get into our room.

New Deposit Policy no longer a place to stay
They charged us $250 deposit on the room already on the $180 room fee for one night. Told us it would be refunded upon checkout. Next morning they told us the room had to be inspected before the refund. My husband us on blood thi ners. Apparently he scratched himself during the night. They found 3 miniscule blood spots on the top sheet. Told us they would have to send out the sheets to be washed and the card would be charged for the cleaning and the balance refunded. We have stayed there before and never went through this. We will not becoming back to this site again. I can see the deposit if we were rowdy people, but we are elderly and stay here to enjoy looking at the boats. Never again.
