My family and I just got back from a weeks stay at the Holiday Inn in Fort Walton Beach, FL. This Holiday Inn is old and the rooms are really small. We had a suite room with a gulf view and I really wanted to be able to cook at least breakfast in the kitchen and I was not able... More

Just back from a 2 night -end of Memorial Day weekend- (Sunday and Monday nights) stay at the Holiday Day Inn resort. Rooms were plenty big for the 3 of us fitted with a larger than normal mini fridge and even small table and chairs. We had a non-gulf front room but the view of the waterway was lovely as... More

I was planning to take a trip in august to Fort Walton Beach, FL, but due to work schedule I had to change it to July 11th. That was not a problem so I thought. Once I called the hotel and asked about changing they said sure we can do that but your rate will increase $130 per day because... More

Dear our guest; We are sorry that we were not able to honor the same rate when you wanted to switch your reservation date. Our property is located in a destination area. As a result, our rates have seasonally fluctuated. For the lowest rates, try to book your reservation during our slow season ( Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb). We... More

Bathroom mirror fogged up regardless of whether the bathroom door was left open. There was no bathroom ventilation. Ice machines weren't working. Room lighting was inadequate.

We enjoyed a quick 'getaway' the last weekend in April. The desk personnel were friendly and helpful. Our room was nice and clean. We enjoyed having an oceanfront room.

We enjoyed our stay here. We had a gulf-view room and had plenty of amenities to make for a great vacation. It was off-season so not so crowded. One complaint is that we are not smokers (triggers asthma), so we got a non-smoking room. We could not fully enjoy our time on the balcony over-looking the beach because of the... More
