Overall the stay was a great experience. First off the hotel is easy to find in the line of beachfront hotels being the 3rd or 4th one down the road. It's one of the smaller ones but doesn't take away from anything in fact it might add appeal. The breakfast area was full but not overcrowded. It was what you... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on a last minute getaway. The hotel is very well kept and clean, but is not new and showed some wear in a few minor places. The room was very comfortable and a nice size. We booked a "no view" room but got a room with a window. I don't think I would have... More

We've stayed in Ft Walton beach before at more expensive hotels but this was great. The hotel is small and cozy. Not a big party hotel. Great amenities like free breakfast, Free Wi-Fi, free beach umbrellas and chairs, two bars, very comfortable beds, super friendly staff. No gym but they offered a family pass to Gold's Gym if we wanted... More

I'll just start off by saying this place is just mediocre, nothing special whatsoever but it gets the job done. Merely a motel 6 but beachfront. My family and I stayed 4 nights here last week. This was our 1st trip to Florida. Now here are my personal pros and cons. Pros - check in was fast, beds were comfy,... More

We stayed 4 nights here for our family vacation. Found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. Loved the beach was right out the back door and Dan is a great guy that sits up chairs and umbrellas for guests on the beach. So handy!! The bar had great drinks, breakfast good, fresh water and popcorn available. Enjoyable!
