My boyfriend and I chose this hotel because of the good reviews. It didn't disappoint.

The people at the front desk were very nice and attentive. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. The rooms were nice, and I liked that the sink was in the bathroom.

The beds were fairly comfortable. I generally prefer a softer mattress, so they were a bit too firm for me. The pillows were very soft and there were plenty on each bed. The coverings and sheets on the bed were fresh and clean. Although pets were allowed and we were placed on one of the pet friendly floors, we had no issues. The room was a bit stale smelling when we first entered but turning on the A/C took care of that.

The free breakfast was quite good with a fairly large selection. Biscuits, gravy, sausage patties, eggs, hash Browns, cereal, yogurt, bagels and breads, juice, coffee and waffle makers. Everything that I had was tasty.

On to the negatives. The location is a little sketchy. It's not in the best area and if you end up on the sides that face the road, it's really noisy. However, it was a five minute drive from public beaches with plenty of parking and not far from some shopping areas. Wifi signal was also very poor and disconnected frequently. The only other issue that I had was with smokers. If you ever walked out the side door (right by the pool) , you had to make your way through a cloud of stink. Designated smoking areas should be away from exits.

It was a pleasant enough stay. If I'm ever back in the area, I would stay there again.

Room Tip: When reserving, make sure to specify if you don't want to be on a floor allowing pets. Rooms on...

We stayed in this Ft. Walton property on the Trip Advisor review. The location was a real disapointment. The review gave me high expectation and the property was just was really a did not live up to the great review that I read on this web site.

We liked the location on main highway.The breakfast was great! A variety of food not just the usual bagels and cereal. We brought our dog with us and our room needed cleaned so we contacted the front desk and they told us to take the dog for a quick walk and our room would be cleaned right away! We will be back!! Great customer service!!!

I love this hotel! The staff are courteous, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. The hotel common areas are clean, modern, and pleasing to the eye. The rooms are spacious, clean, and have comfortable beds. Flat screen TV, mini fridge, mircowave, and FREE wifi are a plus. Did not use the pool, gym, or business center, but they seem adequate and well-maintained. Definitely the best hotel in Fort Walton Beach!!!

Room Tip: Request a non-pet room if available. But even "pet" rooms are so clean you would never gue...
