If you are looking for an on the beach hotel in Ft Walton and a good value, this Best Western is the place to be. We just spent 3 nights there. Honestly, no complaints. What's most important to me is safety, cleanliness and service. We felt safe, the room was clean and we had no service issues. Our room did... More

The Best Western is the quintessential Florida beach hotel. It packs all of the amenities of a five star hotel into a relatively economically priced and welcoming hotel that is the perfect place to bring your family and build lasting memories. The people are what takes the hotel from good to great. The front desk employees made me feel welcome... More

The front desk staff was so friendly! Also the bartender, Lisa, at the Cabana bar was AWESOME and super friendly! The view was great. There were chairs and umbrellas on the beach for us to use. We will be back for sure!

We stayed two nights in June mid-week and in general were very happy with the property. The beach is as gorgeous as advertised. They serve a great free breakfast and generally keep the place sand free. However, we were surprised by the lack of restaurants within the area. It seems there are more condos on that side of the island... More

One the best locations for a hotel, best beaches, best amenities, and the best staff and friends on site! During my stay I enjoyed the best beaches around relaxed all day while I had a beach butler brings drinks out to the bar, watched an amazing wedding, and now can't wait to get back the beautiful emerald green waters.

This was our second time traveling from Wisconsin and staying at the Best Western FWB (we came last year at this same time and loved it). This year was better than last and I can’t imagine staying anywhere else. As a kid, my parents would always rent the super-fancy condos IN Destin but after staying at the BW, I don’t... More

The hotel had a very nice breakfast bar included and provided umbrella and chairs on their private section of the beach! The staff was very friendly and attentative. The rooms are nice and designed for a beach front (SAND) hotel.

We love this hotel! Whenever we come to this area we always stay here. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly, and Dan beach man is awesome! My kids love being able to easily go back and forth between the ocean and the pool.

Good value. Staff was friendly and helpful. The beach was very clean and the included chair service and cheap kayak rental was a great addition. The rooms were clean and comfortable. It's been nicely renovated and I'd be glad to recommend this place and stay here again.
