Our family of four - including two teenage daughters, ages 15 and 18 - had a most enjoyable and relaxing stay at this beachfront hotel. The view from our beachfront room was fantastic - surely loved the balcony that not only overlooked the pool, but allowed us to see what our daughters were doing out on the beach and gulf... More

The hotel is older but it was clean and a good value. The only negative was the lobby was unattractive. The breakfast was decent with plenty of seating. The hotel is right on the beach and the complimentary beach chair and umbrella is a nice amenity.

We stayed at this hotel May 14th to the 17th and had the most wonderful time! The hotel staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful! One day I called down to the front desk to ask for a few more towels, and when the man delivered them he refused to accept my tip! I've never had that happen... More

The free breakfast was good - my favorite choices included the waffle maker and the eggs and biscuits. My favorite things about this hotel by far were the free beach chairs and umbrellas available to all the guests, and the gorgeous view from the beach side rooms. I loved to open the curtains wide to see the ocean and leave... More

We had a great stay. Hiedi, Heather and Damen (with an E) were just great, nice and helpful, they truly added to our stay. The location is great, the view is wonderful. The perks are the best ever. The complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas by themselves is the worth the stay, the fruit flavor ice water in the lobby is... More

The staff here is extremely friendly and helpful. The free hot breakfast is awesome. The on-site lounge and tiki bar are reasonably priced and a lot of fun. It has amazing views and the gulf front rooms are the most reasonable priced in the Ft. Walton/Destin area. We actually had to stay in another accomodation on Okaloosa Island once because... More

Waterfront hotel with a cheaper price, but nicer hotels are just next door. The swizzle stick was tiny, dark and strange. Bath tub was huge, shower was hard to turn off and air conditioner wasn't that cold, couldn't set it below 65 and it was a warm 65 (I'm normally freezing).
