Went Memorial Day weekend for the first time to the Fort Walton/Destin area. Loved my stay. Perfect location, just outside all the hype in Destin allowing you to get away from the crowds, yet at the same time, close enough where you can jump right back with them when you want. Super friendly staff, super clean rooms, super clean csrpet... More

Hotel was what you look for when traveling. Staff was friendly, room and bathroom clean and the bed comfortable. I was not expecting the fridge and microwave in the room, which was nice, even though I didn't use them. I stayed in a room with king bed. Room isn't spacious but adequate. Did not use any of the hotel amenities,... More

The hotel is clean, comfortable, and staff is professional beyond words!! Everyone I came into contact with had a smile on their face and greeted me making me feel welcome! The breakfast was delicious, the pub next door is a great choice for food and beer, and the location to the air force base is second to none. I rarely... More

I appreciate every little thing you do to cater to travelers who want to feel at home. Bed was comfortable, shampoo and lotion were not generic, and there were lots of outlets and a mini fridge. There was a crack in the tile on my shower wall, but the room was otherwise spotless. There was even a comment card with... More

This hotel was recommended through a booking agent for the cheerleading competition we were attendeding. We traveled several hours to get there to be told that we would not be accomodated because they could not find my name in your system. I provided a confirmation with this hotel's information on it; confirming the reservation to be told that "this is... More

We were also extremely disappointed to learn of this unfortunate incident with your cheer group. We understand that when your room was booked through the third party Booking Agency, a confirmation number was generated through their system, which was then provided to you. It is very upsetting to know that you traveled all that way only to find out that... More

This is hotel is spotless and comfortable. Amy at the Front Desk is the epitome of customer service; polite, friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was delicious with some of the best coffee ever.

The hotel met or exceeded my expectations in all areas, and I'm PICKY! :) The hotel was recommended to me as I was driving, and just hours out.

I was very comfortable in my week long stay at the Fairfield which put me minutes from the Eglin West gate. The bed slept very well. I was given a suite and the extra room was useful (a love seat on which to relax and watch TV). The shower was always hot enough and strong enough for me. The front... More

Title says it all. Eglin AFB west and TAC gates are just a few minutes away. Air Force Armament Museum is close, too. Beaches are close but far enough to not be in "tourist rate" range. There is plenty of dining/shopping within a 5 to 10 min. drive. Hotel is on a State Highway so access is not a problem... More

We stayed at this hotel to be relatively close to Destin, FL, we discovered it was about 20 minutes away with traffic; not that convenient but we made it work. The hotel is beautifully landscaped and very clean inside and outside. The hotel staff was very friendly and courteous; they went out of their way to make us feel welcomed.... More
