Everything about the property and the staff was great! Had a spacious room with a great view! My only criticism would be the room decor, needs to be updated!

Everything was great here. Free breakfast- 0k. The only thing needed would be a choice on meat items for us protein junkies such as sausage and/or bacon.

GREAT LOCATION

Pros: We liked the staff.
Cons: MATTRESSES
Location: Easy assess to all the highways. Spent time in DESTIN - favorite area was the harbor walk and MC GUIRES.
The hotel has a great location on the beach. It is older with a 50's motif, which is quaint. However, the mattress also felt like it was from that time, too soft and very lumpy. I did not sleep well. The breakfast was always the same and very boring. The eggs were on the rubbery side or maybe old and the sausage patties too dried and no taste. When you spend a week it would have been nice to see a few different items. I have stayed at many other BEST WESTERNS and the breakfast was great. The staff was very friendly and very helpful in answering questions and giving directions. We enjoyed our stay after we stretched out the kinks.

Just Okay

Pros: Breakfast, front desk staff
Cons: cleaning staff, maintenace, noise level
Location: Near Miracle Strip Pkwy in Fort Walton Beach
Hotel is looking a bit dated. Lights in the bathroom didn't always work, housekeeping knocked a window curtain off its track, which I reported and maintenance did a somewhat sloppy fix. The remote for the TV didn't always work. Found hair in the shower the first day. Also, the walls are quite thin. I heard snoring in the adjacent room the first night, and spring break guests rolling in and making noise the other nights. Breakfast is plentiful, though the hot food was lukewarm. Front desk was friendly.
