Room was superclean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Every member of the staff that we encountered (including the room service personnel) was friendly and helpful! We had an amazing view of the beach on our private balcony. The lobby was decorated with beautiful colorful glass vases and interesting maps. I have been telling all my friends about this hotel...

We only stayed for one night but we can say - for the price: Great location. It is right on the beach and it is a beautiful white powder sandy beach with clear, turquoise waters. Price includes a really good continental breakfast. BEST coffee, better than SB. Rooms are nice and comfortable. Not the Ritz, but comfortable. Service is wonderful.... More

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and have always been well pleased. We stayed this time to get married on the beach in front of the hotel New Years Day! We will definitely be staying here in the future and highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay oceanfront in the Fort Walton Area!

We stayed here for proximity to the beach and to the excellent restaurants within a few blocks. It was a good choice. We asked for and got a room on the beach front. We would have wanted a window that opened so we could hear the ocean without having to open the balcony door. It was cold during our December... More

We recently stayed at this hotel and we did not get a gulf room view, which I think was a big mistake. Overall, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful, the colors were beautiful and the hotel's proximity to the beach can't be beat. My problem was that I found the hotel to be dirty, especially our room and... More

This hotel is perfectly placed with excellent beach access, lovely room views. Staff went over and above. Beds and linens were very comfortable and clean--overall it was very clean. The room was musty--probably due to the time of year and little air circulation. Reasonable price for a one night stay. The coffee wasn't very good and no tea downstairs evenings.... More

I was pleased with the hotel having stayed there over the Christmas holiday. The staff was friendly and helpful the whole week. The beds were comfortable and place was clean. It is an older hotel but enjoyed the decor and history around the place. Being on the beach was great and thankful for getting a room with the view of... More

Well to be honest I expected mediocrity when the wife made the reservations. I was pleasantly surprised indeed. The Bed was extremely comfortable so much now that the wife wants a new bed. The staff was awesome and very helpful. The surroundings and location of the motel was very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. IF/When we go back, we... More

Stayed Christmas Eve and Day and only wished we stayed longer! Service is amazing, rooms are huge and clean. Beds and pillows are comfy. The gulf view room is mandatory!! It was amazing to look out and see dolphins and listen to the beach waves from the balcony.

The location is great! The beach access is great! The view is even better! Now, I guess all the adjacent hotel that have beaches might be pretty similar in the view and beach access. Hotel room is just basic..nothing fancy. Can definitely come back to stay here. Was really glad to get a manager's discount for this off season.
