An older property but an excellent staff and great amenities. Two beaches chairs and an umbrella are included in the price along with a very good continental breakfast. The automatic pancake maker is impressive. View of the ocean was exceptional and access to the beach was quick. Location on Snata Rosa Island provides the beauty of the Gulf without all... More

I booked a room for my parents at Best Western in Ft. Walton Beach for the weekend after Labor Day because we wanted to avoid the holiday crowd. It was a great experience for my parents because the hotel is conveniently located right on the beach. The room was clean and had no weird smell. Overall, thanks to the location... More

The views are great on the water gulf side, and the beds are awesome. Breakfast okay. Great seafood nearby at Hightide. Walking to the venues is no problem. The serta beds are new pillowtop and after a fun beach day they wrap you in them.

Great hotel for the value. Great staff!!! (About the area: the beach + seafood were a nice surprise. The beach is very nice and the food portions at the restaurants are huge. Good value here as well.)

$117 a night for room without a view. Staff was very nice and accommodating. Free breakfast, free beach chairs and umbrellas, heated pool. We stayed a Friday and Saturday night in early September. Weather was perfect.

My family and I stayed at this hotel Friday, July 12 to Sunday, July 14. We chose this hotel because of the beachfront location, free beach chairs, free breakfast, and the mini fridge & microwave in the room. Considering the time of year and the amenities, the price could not be beat. Unfortunately the pros stop there. During our stay... More

Thank You for your review on your recent stay with us. We are so sorry that mother nature had put such a damper on our weather and our (normally) beautiful water. Our beaches on Okaloosa Island are just as emerald green as other areas on the Emerald Coast. We, however, this year were directly hit with the storms and as... More

Loved the balcony and views from our room. The staff was absolutely the best! They attended our every need. The room was clean and spacious. We stayed in 612 over the Labor Day Weekend. We will do this again!

We really enjoyed our stay here. Room over looked the beach with a nice size balconey. Large fridge, microwave, one-cup coffee maker and hairdryer. Beach umbrellas and chairs were complimentary. Close to Destin, Pensacola and Mobile, Alabama. Public transportation easily available in Ft. Walton and Destin.
