“Cracking place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment for 2 nights. Lovely space for our family of 4, with a pool view it was everything we wanted and more. Have to say this was great, just the thing we like in our family. Relaxed and carefree. A+++++.

My family and I stayed at the Wakulla Suites this past week and had a positive stay. We had chosen it based on reviews here and elsewhere touting it as a "family-friendly" location, and we were not disappointed on that point.

Below are the positive and negative aspects of our stay:

Positive stuff:

Price: we found a reasonable rate for our two-day stay
Company: the other guests were mostly families with children.
Space: our two-room suite was a perfect fit for our 5-person family
Cleanliness: The room and its other spaces were all clean; the pool and kiddy-pool were well-maintained, and the appliances were all in good working order.
Convenience: There is a small laundry room. We found the kitchen well-stocked with clean plates, cups, silverware, some cook ware, utensils, etc.
Staff: friendly and professional
Tropical garden, grounds: Very pretty, and there are several stainless steel propane grills scattered about. Lots of people use them to grill food.
Kitsch factor: there is a campy feel that we really liked about the place.

Negative points:

Disrepair: the decking around the pool is mostly pavers, and these are clean, mold-free, etc, HOWEVER, the wooden decking under the lounges is a major hazard. My son reached for a towel on the chaise and got a nasty splinter embedded in his foot.
Upkeep: the bathroom was clean but really outdated. The tiles looked dirty, but I found they were actually just worn in places. The sink was something normally demolished on HGTV.
Amenities: It would be great if this place had a small tiki hut or food service! There is no fitness center.
Beachfront: Okay, technically the Wakulla has beachfront, but most of the complex surrounds the beautiful courtyard and pool area. Most guests need to cross a small quiet street to reach the beach access. Only a small outbuilding occupies the eastern most part of the compound. However, it is not where I would want to be as the pool is the true draw.

Misc.

We used a Wakulla pack and play for our little guy and rented two chaises and an umbrella on the beach ($10-15 all day depending on the guy manning the rentals)

Would we go back? Yes, we are already planning to return-our 2, 8 , and 10 year old kids all had a blast, and so did we.

Room Tip: Lower level better for families with kids.

Upon arrival, we were told that we did not have a reservation, although we had booked our poolside room through Orbitz 2 months earlier. The hotel was very busy, but they were able to put us in a courtyard room, which was more than sufficient. The pool filled with kids gets very loud, so a courtyard room was actually better for us. It's a few buildings closer to the beach, too. Everyone at the hotel was very nice and accommodating. The rooms are very spacious, a small 2-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen. It was much more than I expected at a very reasonable price. Although dated, I would definitely recommend the suites for a week-long vacation. I would say here again and recommend it to friends.

My family and I have been going to the Wakulla since I was a kid. It has an amazing courtyard and a pretty nice pool, plus who can beat the beach right outside your door? The rooms come with a full living room and kitchen which is very nice when you have kids. They have 2 bedrooms. One has a king bed, the other has a double and twin in it. The closets are HUGE! We always put the crib in there for the babies. Not a 4 star resort, but a clean beach family friendly hotel.

Room Tip: We always ask for a bottom floor courtyard room. Easy access to the pool and beach without the stai...

We have been going to Wakulla Suites for 7 years. Initially it was only 4 members of our family. Now it has grown to a yearly event of up to 28 family and friends. The rooms are perfect for a family. Plenty of room with a full kitchen. Affordable and within a 2 minute walk to the ocean. The memories made here will last a lifetime for all of us.

My family stayed at the Wakulla Suites in June. Enjoyed our room, it was adorable and clean! Staff was wonderful. We arrived earlier than check in. We were still able to change into swimsuits and enjoy the beach, as well as get a parking pass. We plan on returning to Wakulla Suites and staying longer! Thank you!
