“My favorite FWB hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I travel often to Ft. Walton Beach for business/to visit friends, and this is by far my favorite hotel in the area. The hotel is fairly new and everything about it is pleasant and attractive. The staff is friendly and very helpful, the rooms are nice and very clean(I particularly love the King rooms with jetted tub!), the bed/bedding in comfortable, the bathrooms are great, nice workout room, great (free) breakfast, and I love having a refrigerator and microwave in the room. The location is great, too--convenient to both Eglin Pkwy. and Beal Pkwy., the beach is *so* close, the mall is close. I love this hotel!

Nice clean place to stay. Liked large frig & Microwave. Would have liked wok desk. Good location. Liked fact entrance door would stay open. Tight fit for luggage cart. WiFi worked well. Why must reviews be 200 words?

I work with Florida Studio Theatre, a professional contemporary theatre in Sarasota, FL and we typically stay at La Quinta locations for our overnight stays. I will say this with out reservation that this location is always my favorite. The rooms are comfortable, the breakfast is lavish and the staff is amazing. Just this morning, I completely burnt my waffle in the waffle maker...I was engrossed in a debate on CNN. Deciding to go another route, I threw the waffle away and went on to eat some other items. The morning staff person brought me a new waffle, which I though was so kind and generous. That is something that is not in her duties, but her sincere kindness was such a treat. I would recommend this location to anyone coming to stay in the Ft. Walton Beach area! I can assure you my company will continue to stay here as well!

I really enjoyed my two-day stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and well-maintained from the rooms to the common areas. Dog-friendly, had a place to walk to the dog. I recommend it for anyone visiting Fort Walton Beach, especially if you have a pet.

This hotel was pet friendly, which was the main reason we chose it. Modern, newer, very clean. Basic breakfast, was kept up well. Friendly staff. They have an area next door to walk your dogs, which is basically an empty lot with a small green grass area. Needs more lighting in this area, as there was panhandlers across the road and also at the stoplight before you get to the hotel. I had my husband take the dog out at night, as I didn't feel safe going out by myself. Not directly on the beach, but a block or two away. Would stay here again.

Property was very clean, and the free breakfast a plus. Nothing fancy. Hotel room was clean and well appointed, and the hot water always available for the shower. Pet friendly was the main-attraction, and the easy access to the Destin area. Liza Jackson park was just a mile down the road for leisurely walks w/the dogs. One note...the beaches in Destin and FWB are NOT pet accessible. If you drive farther out to the beaches of South Walton off 30A, they allow dogs on the beach (but supposedly only for local residents w/permit..but we didn't have any issues the two days we were out there visiting w/o the permits).

Room Tip: Rooms on the first floor were easy access to the dog walking spot behind the property
