Beachfront hotel so I assume all the rooms have a balcony and sea view but you should ensure you get one as the view is amazing. Hotel has direct access to a stunning beach and free beach chairs/umbrella. The price is mid-range and that is what you get. Decorations are probably not to everyone's taste and the complimentary breakfast is... More

We opted for this Best Western after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Everything you read is true. Wonderful ocean view from our room's balcony. Fabulous drinks and entertainment at their outdoor, and indoor, bars. Movies shown at night. Free breakfast, fresh popped popcorn you can take to the beach. Unbelievably helpful staff. Fridge and microwave in room, comfortable, queen beds. Great... More

Stayed on top floor, beach front, and it was better than expected! The crowds were very light this time of year (first week in May) so we walked right into all restaurants and stores. Hotel has a small pool plus beachfront- they also provided a large umbrella and two chairs on the beach per room- not sure if that is... More

This Best Western had very good prices, compared to the other hotels and properties in the area. The location was ideal - just west of the bridge from Ft. Walton and right on the beach. Dan the beach man was very friendly - he made sure you had your own umbrella set up with beach chairs. That was a nice... More

My family and I stayed here the weekend of my wedding and it was awesome! The place was very clean and the staff was awesome! Matt was very helpful in getting us checked in and helping us to extend our stay for one night! I highly recommend staying here for your vacations!

Beach front rooms with balconies 200 feet from the Gulf. Saw dolphins three days out of our five day stay. Good free breakfast. Free umbrella and beach chair and poolside bar that makes beach deliveries. Indoor bar with entertainment nightly. Every member of the staff is a professional and more friendly, courteous and knowledgeable of local restaurants and attractions than... More

I loved that the hotel offers guest 2 beach charis and one umbrealla. I wish the hours were longer as this service is only available from 9-5pm. At 5 pm they start to pick up the chairs and umbrellas. I did love the Tiki Bar. The bartender was awesome. The hotel breakfast wasn't bad especially considering it was included. I... More

We've stayed here several times because it's right on the beach & I love the colorful retro decor -- but our stay was marred by the stench not only of other guests smoking cigarettes outside on their balconies but even disgusting cigars. Wanted to leave door open to balcony but the smell...yuck. Would stay here again only if they disallow... More
