Staff is spectacular! Always smiling and extremely helpful. While it is a little dated, we loved the decor of the lobby and direct access to the water & sand. We were here on business and feel we got a really good deal on the room. We would definitely consider staying again should we need to head to Ft. Walton again... More

The BW was cheery with great access to the beach. Our room was tidy and comfortable except that it was located right next to the very noisy pool equipment that hummed so loud we could not hear the waves. I'm sure other rooms on the other end of the hotel were fine, but we got the gumpy one.

The man at the desk was very kind. When we checked in we were offered an oceanfront room at no additional cost. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast was very good with many items to choose from. Helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel was a nice place to stay. The beach is beautiful, the breakfast is well done. The staff is very accommodating. The only short fall was the bathroom - it needs some updating. No ventilation, shower and sink fixtures did not work very well. Shower water pressure was good, sink water pressure was lousy.

Stayed five nights and enjoyed every minute! The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a beach front room and it was well worth the extra cost. The view from the balcony was picture perfect!

We had a wonderful stay at the Best Western at Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. Our room was upgraded to a gulf side, 6th floor affording us a vista of the water, beach and sun. We visited a neighborhood restaurant on the recommendation of our check in staff and found good food in a cozy atmosphere. We had lunch in Valparaiso,... More

The facility suffers from typical effects of salt air and a more casual way of life but the location and the staff just couldn't have been better. The price was very affordable, too. Room was comfortable; no issues and the view was spectacular. Staff directed us to various local seafood restaurants (Stewby's, A.J.'s and Anglers). Air museum is close by... More

My husband & I travel about 40-50 days every winter & have stayed in many different properties. We don't mind older properties if they are kept updated but we found Best Western Walton Beach in dire need of an update, right from the lobby to the rooms.
