“Stayed here happily 24-28 Feb 2014”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Hotel very accurately described in it's listing. Located in Ft Walton beach, just a bridge across from the islands and beaches. Clean. Friendly. Pet friendly (though I didn't travel with one and was put on pet-free floor). Quiet. Convenient to airport, Eglin base, beaches, shops and restaurants (esp. Burrito del Sol!!!).

Hot breakfast each morning, though as expected, not too much to offer a plant-based eater aside from fresh fruit (apples, bananas, oranges) and toast. Coffee always available. Didn't use workout room but it looked clean and adequate. WiFi connection strong and fast.

Staff friendly and helpful with guiding a first time visitor on things to see/do. Probably a good location during peak season to avoid beach/island traffic except on days choosing to head that way. Traffic heavy on beach road in off season when needing to turn left so can only imagine during peak season.

No complaints. Met or exceeded expectations. Would stay here again and recommend to other business travelers.

Room Tip: Just let them know at check in whether traveling with pet or not.

What a difference from one (worst) La Quinta in Baton Rouge to this hotel!! The manager had housekeeping get my room ready immediately upon early arrival, so that the room would be close to my father's ADA room. The staff was VERY accommodating and polite. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The breakfast was very good too. And I found a bill under my door when I arose the next morning. I just wish we could have stay a couple of days more. I was helping to move my dad to FL. I would highly recommend this hotel. Nothing to complain about here! I will book this hotel again if I go back there - maybe vacation. A La Quinta favorite!!

Room Tip: we were on the first floor and I did not hear any noise. Very good security.

Everything was just right, just as the pictures reflect. Great pet-friendly place. And I love a hotel that welcomes pets as much as this one does. Good on customer service. GREAT breakfast. Fantastically close to the beaches--about a five-ten minute drive to some of the prettiest beaches anywhere.

This is a great place to stay with your pet. The staff is pleasant and helpful. The rooms are clean. The property is beautifully landscaped. The pool area is especially. It seemed to be a newer La Quinta.

Everything a tired traveler could ask for: pleasant, helpful personnel,squeaky clean rooms, large bathrooms, microwave, fridge, all the amenities,beds and pillows so comfortable you hate to get up, very quiet, HBO and Starz, and to top it off, a full breakfast with tasty sausage, eggs, yogurt, anything you want. Also offered a pamphlet on fun places to see and go to have fun.
