“Warning ...........Hotel Under Renovation”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Warning ...........Hotel Under Renovation

****Do not go to this location if you expect to be able to get any sleep

People renovating this hotel were allowed by Management and Owners to start work at 6:45AM on Saturday and Sunday. Banging Loudly, Playing Boombox music, laying tiles, dropping bags of mortar.

Refrigerator in my room not working.
No forks to eat Complimentary Breakfast!!

Total Lack of Respect and Consideration for the Customer.

These People even asked if we wanted to upgrade for a Valentines Day Special $10 for champagne??? Is this a Romantic Place to Stay... I Do Not think So!!

Called Customer Service and all they do is take down your comments. No Quality Guarantees at Quality Inn!!

The Bayside has a pretty nice location, and the rooms are big. It also has a huge 70's vibe - so if you dig large crt tube TVs and pastel corridors, this place is for you. The rooms are a little run down - not a lot, but what you would expect from an older property - and are very clean.

The wing of rooms on the West side, along the Bay, is completely closed. They are doing a complete remodel of the hotel facilities, building by building.

I booked a bay view room on their website, but none are actually available until the work is complete So forget about a bay view until then.

I found the staff helpful, but the facilities worn. But a good location for FWB area, close to everything.

I stayed here about 5 years ago with my family and it was much nicer, it was older then too but just seemed cleaner and friendlier. I was there this time with family and granted it was the "Off Season" but that's no excuse.This property has gone down hill A LOT. The room was ok but the carpet was very dirty and smelled of mold and cigar smoke. The bathroom was very small and the toilet wouldn't seem to flush right. The shower was dirty and you could tell it was part of a much older building. I seemed to have run out of hot water during my shower and none of the outside doors locked behind you. The television was a small 32 inch tube style TV.(Come on... this is 2013 get a flat screen) I only stayed one night then checked out and moved to another hotel that was cleaner. The breakfast was ok but was told several of the people had quit and one of the construction guys was fixing the breakfast area food. It was a little weird. I doubt I'll be going back unless they do some serious renovating.

Room Tip: Get a newly renovated room or stay somewhere else cleaner...

I have stayed at this loacation on a regular basis since 2007. It is in an excellent location for travel in the NW Florida area. The rooms are rather larger than avarage, with many nice ammenities, such as micro and fridge.

The downside it that this is an older property, and it does need some renovation; the plus side is that this property was just purchased, and the new owners plan a major renovation.

Everything is clean and well maintained, but it facilities do show signs of wear. It is not new, but it is nice.

It is right on the bay, and while not on the Gulf, you are on the water with nice views from the bayview rooms.

If your travel takes you to the Ft Walton Beach -Destin area, take a look at this location. It has a lot going for it with location and the views.

Room Tip: The second floor of the the bayside wing is really nice.

Had to find a place to stay for the weekend for my friends wedding. It was cheap the breakfast was good and the pool was nice. It could have been a little cleaner but all in all it was nice and the staff was super friendly.
