I am writing this review from the room itself. The staff is friendly and quick. They checked- in us two minutes. Clean rooms with elegant decor. Generally hotel rooms have a typical odor but this room has none whatsoever. Best carpets I have seen so far in hotels in U.S.

The staff was rude on the phone when we asked about checking in early and when we checked out. We were assigned a room and it looked half cleaned then someone had stopped and left. They reassigned us to a different room which was directly next to the breakfast area which meant at 730am it was extremely loud. We could... More

Rooms are clean and modern. I got a suite with an attached sitting/work area. Not cheap at ~$200/night. Breakfast is typical plastic breakfast familiar to those who stay at the Hampton Inn. Scrambled eggs were particularly bad but they had good greek yogurt.

We stopped here to break up a long trip. It is clean and the staff friendly. There is a sports bar just steps away, which was nice since we were to tired to get back into the car to find a place to eat. The rooms were nice and clean. Beds a bit firm for my liking. Breakfast was good,... More

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.

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
