HORRIBLE!!!!!!! This place is awful, dirty, & nasty! Yes, it's on the beach & when you look out the door you see BIG sand dunes! Party Central! I neatly ruined my family's vacation by booking this place! My son had an asthma attach soon after we checked in after entering the smoke infested room! It was filthy & dingy! I... More

This is the only place that my fraternity ever stayed at that invited us back, and not only did they invite us back but did it year after year. They catered to us as though this was our place, and it was while we were there. The security guard, Frosty, made sure everyone had a great time and the police... More

This place is horrible! They made NO repairs after Hurricane Ivan several years ago. You will probably get an infection from the mold so stay away! They didn't even bother to replace the stairs on the boardwalk to the beach. Sandbags were stacked up against our doors. We turned it over to the BBB. Please do the same if you... More

We did not go to Fort Walton for a luxury hotel stay. We went for the awesome white beaches.... more family oriented and less populated than other nearby commercial beaches. What we found at the Sandman was exactly what we went for. Now about the hotel suites themselves. We got a 3rd floor balcony suite. The suite is NOTHING FANCY... More

This room isn't quite the world class place that some people look for; however, if you're on a budget and want to spend your money on better things, it's well worth the price. If you get one of the top floors your looking right at the gulf. I would stay here again.

This place is not as shown on their website. It's dirty, falling apart, not directly on the beach and we had no hot water and they didn't know when the maintenance man would be there. We arrived at 9pm so had to sleep there and then checked out first thing the next morning! I don't usually leave reviews and comments... More

If you are looking for a great place to stay that will not take a bite out of your budget...This is it. The Sandman- Ft. Walton- is on Santa Rosa Blvd. They have a hotel but we always stay in the suites. With the suite, you get the usual bedroom/s, & bath plus, you get a kitchen with a stove... More

Listen people this place is not a place you want to stay. Dont be fooled by the pictures on thier internet site, the pictures make the rooms look great but they are not. Walls and floors were dirty, Sleeper sofa was smelly and very dirty. The dead bolt locks on the doors did not work from the outside so the... More

I suppose it was the dirty floor. As my friend's twin 9-month old boys crawled around the carpet during the first 10 minutes of our stay, we thought "Oh, how cute!". When we picked them up we said "Oh, how rude!" Their hands, knees and feet were black from years of accrued filth. Disgusting. Maybe it was the "kitchen". 3... More

My family’s stay at the Sandman Motel was awful. From the moment we made reservations until the time we checked out, we found the staff to be curt and inflexible at best, rude and unprofessional at worst. The carpet in our room was filthy, leaving our socks and feet black. The kitchen was poorly equipped for any endeavor more complex... More
