I stayed at the Wakulla for 17 nights from August 24th to September 10th, 2010 and enjoyed my stay very much! The rooms are just awesome. Spacious with two bedrooms and a full kitchen, they easily fit four people. The staff was very courteous and friendly from the time I arrived to the time I left. When I needed something from them it was done within 10 minutes of my call.
My room was in the back courtyard area of the hotel on the second floor (just as I requested when I made the reservation back in July) which, according to the hotel's website, is the most quiet area and that really is true. Not once was I awakened by any noise from the street or other hotel guests. The rooms are well insulated so no noise could be heard from neighboring rooms or the street (except for the garbage truck at 10AM). The beds are comfortable and make for a good night's sleep. The fridge in the kitchen is great, it'll keep your beverages nice and (ice-)cold.
The room itself was very clean. Not once did I see a single bug. The cleaning staff cleaned thoroughly and vacuumed every day so the beach sand that was carried into the room during the day was gone the next.
The location of the hotel is great. Even with the rooms that aren't in the beachside building, the distance to the beach is minor. it's a short 1 to 2 minute walk from all the rooms of the hotel to the beach. The street you have to cross isn't a busy one either, since it's a dead end leading to a gated building next door. Though I did not have a direct beach view from my room, once I stepped out onto the walkway outside of the room I could see the beach (and the beautiful sunrises) from there.
There is no restaurant at the hotel itself but there are a lot of restaurants within walking distance as well as grocery stores and two 7eleven. So if you get hungry you can easily head to one of the restaurants or go grab some food at one of the grocery stores and cook up something in the room's kitchen. The hotel offers free wireless internet (which admittedly got a bit slow on the labor day weekend because the hotel was fully booked and a lot of people were using it) so if you have a laptop with you or own a smartphone check the internet (google maps for example) for restaurants near you.
If I'm in need of a hotel in this area again I'll definitely check for available rooms at the Wakulla first. A great hotel at a great price!
