Great place for family or couples vacation - we always enjoy our stay here. Best staff at any hotel anywhere around. Great breakfast, clean rooms, and right on the beach. Chairs and umbrella are included in the room price. Bright decor keeps everyone happy. Nightly movies for kids and daily pingpong on the patio. Pool is heated and always clean.

I enjoyed my visit at this hotel and will return next year!! Few complaints, but staff made sure complaints were resolved. Great job to housekeeping, bar tender at the tiki bar, young man that put umbrellas out and majority of the staff at front desk. (John) Oh...and young lady that served us on the beach...great customer services!! Highly recommended!!

Our room was on the 4th floor facing the beach. Great view. The beach was really nice and it was a huge plus having reserved chairs and an umbrella. Much preferred staying here than Destin - less crowded beach. Not sure why a previous reviewer had problem with seaweed; it's there one day, gone the next - Nature at work!... More

While attending a business meeting in Fort Walton Beach a colleague suggested we stop by the poolside happy hour at this hotel. The "tiki" bar is amazing and the bartender Don is one of the most customer focused individuals I have ever met. It would be worth staying at this hotel just to hang out with Don! Due to his...

This Best Western is one of the best hotels in this category. The price is great and although the room is not huge or brand new, the amenities and the service of the staff was exceptional. The room staff kept our room clean and tidy without any undue interruption. The room's mechanical items were in perfect working condition, and the... More

Staff are friendly, professional and very knowledgeable about the surroundings. James and Meghan and sometimes Bruce are like the google of this hotel. The room however was in a very bad shape, some things did not work and the noise will wake you up. Housekeeping was horrible, I had to constantly go to the front desk because they forgot to... More

We booked this hotel last minute! We were on the second floor and the view was very pretty. Room/hotel decor needed to be updated, but it was still a comfortable place to stay overnight! The price/night was a little high in my opinion, but I guess we were basically paying for the view, which was great!

Great view of the gulf but the wifi is horrible..... Room was okay, not what I expected. Daytime staff was not so nice. Was not able to change my reservation because I booked a non refundable room for a cheaper price but at the end of the day it end of being costly because of the inconvenience. Air Conditioner unit...
