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.

For an older and smaller place, this hotel was very nice for the price. Considerably cheaper than the waterfront places just across the street, but very nice. Everything was clean and the beds were very comfortable. You can tell they have renovated recently and are making every effort to cater to their customers. Staff was very friendly as well. Would...

This is an older property, but our room had been renovated. The microwave was hidden in a cabinet underneath the tv, with no indication that it was there. I had actually called the front desk to ask why there was no microwave present, before being told of its location. The beds were comfortable. The breakfast was ok. The wifi was... More

Family stayed here while driving back to TX from FL. The beds are pretty comfortable but the rooms are very small, has fridge/microwave, breakfast was average, pool is tiny, and its an all around older establishment. Paid $200 a night, NOT worth it. Price is too high from summer and being a block from the beach I guess. I would... More

Loved the free wifi, which as you know is extremely important for teenagers! The complimentary breakfast was very good. We also spent a lot... More

I think this place was awesome because when compared to the surrounding hotels, the location was awesome, and I was pleased with the rooms and service. It's a good hidden gem in the hustle and bustle of the ft Walton/Destin area. Everything is really close, and it's right across the street from the beach. I will return next time I... More

Just wrapped up a 5 night stay with my wife and 4 year old son and couldn't be happier with our accommodations.

Room was kind of plain but had excellent views, TV, Microwave and dorm size fridge. Bed was very comfortable, linens spotless.

I have stayed here two years in a row for the same event. "Billy Bowlegs Pirate Festival". It is in a perfect place for this. Lots of Parking, easy access to resturants, bars, beaches and boat slips nearby. The rooms facing the sound to the east have a great view of the fireworks.
