Stayed at the Emerald Coast for 5 nights. The room was on the sixth floor and it was clean with plenty of space. The view from the 'deck' (a.k.a the sixth floor stair landing) was beautiful. You could see the gulf without any obstruction. It was within walking distance of the Broadwalk, beach and miniature golf. There were also several... More

Great party hotel! If you just want a good night sleep in a clean place, you'd be better off in your car. I left as soon as I pull the covers back. Internet didn't work either.

Stayed for 4 nights, had no problems. It was quiet as can be and the service was excellent. Breakfast is what you would expect for a hotel like this, but was fresh and adequate. We ate breakfast in the hotel everyday but one. Location was great, close to the beach, Boardwalk, Liquor store, Gas Station, Destin, and downtown Ft. Walton.... More

Front desk staff very nice -- Rooms are clean , beds are very comfortale but bathroom tiles need to be replaced. This is an OLD building - and it is really showing its age .. As with all older hotel/motels - the sound proofing was not a priority. So if you ae a light sleeper -- you might not want... More

I am shocked people wrote such positive reviews for this place. My room stunk so profusely of mildew, I could hardly breathe. Yeah, I paid $60.00 but it wasn't worth it. The food at breakfast was some nasty melted cheap snack cakes. Truly a dive. Stay away!

My husband and I and our small children (ages 3 and 5) stayed at this hotel when on vacation to attend my husband's sister's wedding. The hotel was comfortable and clean. The continental breakfast (with fresh waffles) was invaluable for my morning coffee and to placate my kid's first thing in the morning hunger. The location was fantastic and we... More

We stayed at this hotel for four nights. Our room was clean and the beds were comfortable (very important because I have a back problem). Even though on the main highway we heard no traffic noise (our room was on the 3rd floor) The room was equiped with a fridge, microwave and a coffee machine with pads for Wolfgang Puck... More

We were very impressed by the excellent service we received. We were very tired and had to book this hotel at the last minute. They allowed us to check in three hours early and the receptionist was very pleasant. The room was average, but the location was great. There was no charge for the highest speed wireless access I have... More

I just got back from a weekend stay at the Emerald Coast Inn and Suites on Okaloosa Island and felt compelled to write a review. This place is great as long as you understand what you're getting. If you are looking for a place on the beach, with a great view, and a resort atmosphere then you need to look... More

Wow, after scanning these reviews, I feel as though I must have stayed at a different place from those who are giving this "hotel" 5 stars. First, let me say, I am not a hotel snob. My husband and I are in our mid-20's and have stayed at our fair share of Holiday Inn/middle-of-the-road places. This is my first time... More
