We were able to check in a bit early, which was a plus. Once we got into the room, everything was clean and in order. The hotel is a good value, and the beach is a short distance away. We drove to The Boardwalk (very close) to gain beach access. We also walked the pier there - amazing! Definitely not... More

The hotel has dark and dingy unlit outdoor halls and feels unsafe. I asked to switch to another room on a higher level and could not, so I left after 30 minutes to find a nicer place where I didn't feel like I would be at risk if I left anything in the room.

We visited Ft Walton Beach in July this year. We stayed at Emerald Coast Inn and Suites. It is located directly across from the beach. The room were clean and cool.

We checked this hotel out online pictures were very deceiving. Also we talked to a hotel representative, we were told there was a walkway to the beach. When we pulled up to this hotel, it wasn't what we expected. The pool was more the size of a plunge pool and there was no walkway to the beach. So we went... More

We sincerely apologize for your experience at our hotel. Please feel assured that this is not the way we intentionally conduct business. As far as the hotel advertisements on third party sites, we guarantee the pictures we post are taken at the hotel and reflect nothing other than what is being offered in fact may not reflect our recent guestroom...

We stayed 4 nights at the Emerald Coast Inn & Suites. Very clean rooms, great location, helpful staff, & the hot breakfast was great. The only advice I would give is to make the breakfast area bigger. It was hard to move when more than two families were eating. Will definitely come back!

This hotel was very clean & staff was so friendly. It is right past the bridge that goes from destin to ft walton on the ft walton side. So it's just minutes from everything. It's Right across the road from the beach & many great restaurants. We loved it. Very comfy beds also.

We decided to stay over the weekend and the hotel at which we were staying was completely booked. So we looked around and found this nice, little hotel. It is located across the highway from the beach and has a beachy feel to it. The hallways aren't air conditioned, but with the doors open, the sea breeze blows through. The... More

Stains on bedspread, hair in the sheets, appeared to be blood splattered on ceiling, view of overflowing dumpsters, & pool was the size of a hottub. Would not feel comfortable sending my 15 year old to the car alone in this area. The two good things about the motel was comfortable mattresses and they didnt argue when I asked to... More

This is by no means a luxurious hotel, but our room was clean, bed and pillows comfortable, good breakfast and friendly staff. Location is not on the beach but right across the street. We have no complaints. We enjoyed our stay.
