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.

Nice and convenient

Pros: Location on the beach is obviously a plus, free parking is always good and the friendliness of the staff was a big plus.
Cons: Breakfast seating area could be a bit bigger and more comfortable.
Location: Numerous restaurants nearby, many within walking distance; by beachwalk of sidewalk. Destin Harborwalk, shopping, national shoreline parks and golfing
Nice , convenient hotel for value conscious individuals,couples,families. Not the fanciest or most modern place I've ever stayed, but everything was clean, staff was very pleasant and helpful and when you add that to it's location I have no complaints. Complimentary breakfast was nothing exceptional; but more than adequate. Space for breakfast was "somewhat" limited but extra conference areas were made available when necessary.Would certainly consider staying here again if in the area.

relaxing stay at beachfront stay

Pros: Everything.
Location: Destin is 6 miles away. Lots of shopping and places to eat in Destin.
I would recommend this hotel if you are looking for a beachfront room at Fort Walton Beach at moderate cost. Complimentary breakfast is very good. Six miles from Destin. We will stay here again.

Perfect location

Pros: Location, price
Cons: Nothing
Location: Wonderful local restaurants and shopping options.
Beautiful beach and very friendly hotel staff. We had a nice stay and will definitely be coming back. Next time we will be sure to book an ocean view room. Perfect location to enjoy a day on the beach or take a short drive to local restaurants and stores.

Fantastic Views, Friendly Staff

Pros: The view and accessibility to the beach.
Everything about my stay at this hotel was satisfying. When I checked in i was asked if I wanted to upgrade my room to a beachside view and I am absolutely glad I did. The views on the 6th floor was spectacular and the balcony is very private. The drinks from the bar are expensive but very tasty.
