We stayed here for one night on our way home from vacation in southern Florida. The room was a little rundown and certainly not worth the price. They had steam cleaned the rugs that day and the carpet was still wet. I had to wear my shoes all evening! Even the bed felt wet! I would not recommend this hotel... More

Arrived at check in and the front desk was very helpful and willing to provide area information. The outside of the hotel reminded me of cheap apartments but once we stepped in the room it was very nice and clean. The air was cold and the water in the shower was nice and warm. Breakfast was decent, a couple cereals,... More

I expected a much nicer hotel. This one was nice. But if I come to this area again I will stay in a different motel. The rooms are nice. But the Air Conditioner is very loud. You have to go outside to get ice. When I checked in I noticed that they had received a Tripadvisor Award. Now I will... More

Pleasant, clean, modest, renovated older hotel . Beds were elevated and comfortable, shower curtains hanging from curved rod had clear panel for increased light, breakfast mini buffet offered oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, waffles, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit, baked goods. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Short drive to public access beaches and pier. Great views of 9pm wednesday night fireworks from... More

This was our first time staying at Emerald Coast Inn and Suites, and will be our regular location for the future. Facilities was great, staff was friendly, helpful and available, bed was very comfortable. Overall the experience was perfect in every way.

Booked a two day reservation at this establishment. They have a 48 hour cancellation policy and they REALLY do mean 48 hours in advance. I apparently needed to cancel my reservation by 3 p.m. I called to cancel at 3:30 p.m. They agreed to cancel my reservation but advised they would still be charging me for the first night! I...

Compared to nearby hotels, you can stay here for less. So, what's the tradeoff? Compared to the more expensive hotels: - lobby doesn't look as fancy and modern - room, however, is clean and comfortable - - very nice room - to get to the beach you have to either drive 1 minute (there's plenty of parking at the beach)...

Went for a weekend trip with my boyfriend. Very dated and old. Run down fencing around a tiny pool in the parking lot. I had to knock on glass for the man to come open the door of the office (no lobby linked to rooms). We got to our "smoking" room and the smell was so strong it knocked you... More

Room was clean, bed very comfortable, staff very friendly. Agree with earlier reviewer about the disinfectant smell. Some parts of the hotel look a bit dated but overall I enjoyed my overnight stay here and it was good value. I would stay again. The road outside takes a bit of crossing to get to the beach but there is a... More

Came to Okaloosa Island on a lark when I had a few days off. The first hotel I stayed at, in Destin, was kinda yucky, so I looked for another one. This one seemed to have best reviews of the cheaper ones, so I booked a room online. First off, very, very nice people run this place. It's a weird... More
