Stayed here in the dead of summer on a business trip and was on the ground floor. I don't know if it was an issue with the AC or just the right combination of heat, humidity and the AC but the entire room was wet which made it very uncomfortable. I was only there for three nights and was working... More

Staff is very friendly, rooms are good-very good. Pool is great and this area of the beach is perfect. I stay here every time I come down for a meeting at Eglin AFB. Hotel honors the government per diem rates. Breakfast is not included, but the restaurant prices are reasonable.

You get a friendly smile and welcome the moment you walk in the door. I was upgraded to a Junior suite room with a view to the beach and tiki bar.
