This was our third stay. While we like it for various reasons, the place could use some updates.

The bed was not comfortable (mattresses needed to be replaced). Microwave was not working. Bicycle seats were broken on some of the bikes. Staff was friendly

Wyhdam Ft Walton Beach

The beach was very nice the hotel staff were also very nice. The hotel itself was very outdated. The gym equipment was purchased in 2001 and for the most part did not work. The washers and dryers mostly did not work. My tub, sink and toilet were leaking. For the price, unfortunately I was disappointed. I hope I at least get rewards points for staying.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wyndham Garden. Our suite was roomy & the beds were very comfortable! Our only slight complaint was the beach service. The complimentary chairs & umbrella were put out late at 8:30-9. We always waited on them but other than that, a great place!

Rooms are a little run down. Balcony door had issues and did not shut well. Hotel lay out is odd.

There was quite a wait for those checking in. Check in wasn't until 4 which if taking an early flight, can be difficult waiting for a room. We had several hours to kill before we could get into the room. But the staff at the registration desk was helpful in expediting for us. Cleaning rooms didn't happen for us until after 4 pm. By that time we were ready to leave the beach and clean up for dinner. I think they were just short staffed. But the staff was all very polite and the hotel itself had a lovely view and 2 pools. No complaints there :)

Great value for the price !

Hotel was clean and well kept. View was amazing and the highlight of our trip. The room could use a few minor updates such a ceiling paint. Overall the location was easily accessible with fast working elevators and friendly staff. Hot tub appeared rather dirty throughout our stay which was kind of a bummer. but the pool was nice and clean.

Never again

Pros: Location. Staff
Really disappointed. Every problem blamed on the fact that we were there "out of season." No carbonation for soft drinks/sodas. One night no pizza or chicken available from the menu. Restaurant not opened for lunch, just breakfast and dinner. Restaurant understaffed one evening with only a bar tender and waiter. Would only make 15 chairs available for use on the beach, when at least twice that many were wanted by lodgers,

Pick a different hotel

Pros: My departure
Cons: Make sure stuff works, train the staff
A little cool in Florida on this trip, heat did not work, air handler was so loud you could not sleep, refrigerator extremely noisy, room service would not answer from room, refused my order when I went down to place it in person Never send anyone you like to this place
