We checked in on Friday night around midnight and the young lady that checked us in was great!! Very upbeat and happy. If you select a lower level room, note that chances are you will be on the first or second floor and you will not have a view of the beach or if you do it is a very... More

Visited this area as our 1st choice for a short beach adventure was unavailable. What a pleasant surprise! From check in to check out, entire staff was friendly, helpful, and courteous.

Very nice accommodations on the beautiful white sand beach in Fort Walton Beach. Our room was large and very nice. The 2 pools are very nice, but the best feature is that gorgeous beach. We arrived early and our room wasn't ready, but we were given beach chairs and an umbrella. so we could enjoy the beach all afternoon. We... More

The suite was wonderful. We had full view of the beach and a very short walk down to reach the sand and Gulf. We had peaceful walks along the Gulf every evening. The pools are centrally located and warm. There are activities most nights for kids and families. Internet is slow, as it is most other hotels. Luckily, we didn't... More

We arrived early, yet the staff allowed us to check in 1.5 hours in advance of the scheduled time. The people at the desk were warm and courteous and gracious, and seemed genuinely concerned with how we perceived our accomodations. We went into the 6th floor suite and were totally amazed at the quality of the room. We entered into... More

This hotel has a great location right on the white sand beaches of Fort Walton. Not a ton of things to do in the immediate vicinity as far as night life goes.
