Had problem at check-in due to Google wallet I think. They had wrong cc on file. Took long time to get sorted and we had to go thru it again at check out. Still waiting to see if charges clear. Otherwise, hotel was fine. 6th floor. Good view. Close to beach. Possible downside: strip club next door, though separated by... More

We booked this late in the game so the places right on the water were sold out. We were stuck with this place for the rate range and location we wanted. The exterior is shockingly unattractive and I was a little nervous about it as I was traveling alone with children. Turns out the staff was friendly and the rooms... More

This was a great hotel to stay in for one night. The beach was super close by, the rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. There wasn't anything really remarkable about it, but I don't have anything negative to say either :)

We searched and reviewed so many sites looking for an affordable place to stay in the Ft Walton area. Trust me- spend the extra money and avoid this place. It had a creepy air about it. The breakfast area was so tiny and the boasts about a hot breakfast are nothing to brag about. The waffles were good. The linens... More

All of the hotels in the area were either booked or ridiculously expensive for a one night stay. We walked in and they had a vacancy. The outside of the facility looks a bit run down but the inside of the room was restored, clean, and comfortable. The bed didn't have that old 1970s blanket on it and was very... More

Good breakfast and great beds. Friendly staff helped us with find our way around the town. I will try my best to stay again the next time we're down from Arkansas. Even though the room wasn't spotless, it was still clean enough.

I stayed at this hotel while I was in Fort Walton Beach for a week long class. The desk staff were friendly and helpful. My room was dated, but still clean and comfortable. The wifi worked well and the breakfast was okay.

I stayed here in early april for spring break and it was terrible, there was sand everywhere even in the sheets. The entire hotel had a musty smell. There was cockroaches everywhere. The air conditioner was broken and our view was a dumpster.?..... wow I paid my hard earned cash on this dump. There was mold in the bathroom and... More

I booked this hotel through hotwire and was pleasantly surprised. Check in was pleasant and appears to be a family owned business. On the second day, our remote stopped working and my boyfriend called the front desk and they were there within minutes and got a remote to work for us. I know it seems small, but it was awesome...
