Rooms are clean and staff is friendly. We stayed here because we were using up RCI points and wanted a place in the Florida Panhandle. We had a 1Bed/2Bath Admiral Unit on the main level with a courtyard view. The courtyard is nicely landscaped, but if you can, I recommend getting a water view unit instead. The access to downtown...

Rooms are very clean and quiet. Location is right there at the tourist strip and close to good food. Resort is old and maintained well. Just needs to be updated and newer furniture, cabinets and baths. Wi-Fi works well. Plenty of parking available.

Nice and clean. Rooms are a bit small. We had 1 bdrm/1 bath. A little tight -- Maybe enough for 2 adults and kids, but wouldn't try to do 4 adults. A Few casual dining and activities within walking distance. Beach area is about 15 minutes away. Beaches are beautiful. All staff were very pleasant and helpful.

We go to the Marina Bay every year in July. It's an awesome older resort that is always maintained, clean and family friendly. The staff is friendly and always busy keeping the grounds. Maintained. We love to cookout on the grills provided. It's also relaxing to sit back with a drink and enjoy the awesome view of the Santa Rosa... More

My wife selected this hotel based on the reviews. For the most part they were on target. The hotel is on the main road just over the bridge in Fort Walton. First impression, this is an old hotel that is trying to hang on. The check-in was a little confusing, we had said four nights and the clerk entered it... More

My BF and I went on a romantic vacation. We chose this hotel bc we planned to site-see and spend more time on the beach than in the hotel. Our room was fairly secluded and we were not bothered by others. We did not have a fridge or microwave in the room and having that would have been helpful. The... More

We drove over from Panama City just to stay overnight because my husband had to catch a flight early the next morning. We used Expedia which probably explains the room they gave us. It was next door to the ice machine which cycles on every hour or so to make more ice. And we faced the lovely view of the... More

Love the view of the water. Well kept grounds. Love the 2 full baths. friendly staff. Great to have the"welcome breakfast" and learn what to do in the area. My only complaint is size of kitchen. No counter space but we only eat breakfast and lunch at condo so we work around it. They do have nice grill and eating... More
