“Great place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

We look forward to returning again next year! The hotel is in a great location, close to everything. The beach is across the street and beautiful. Lot's of shops and restaurants to choose from. The hotel offers a variety of items for breakfast, which is great when you are there for several days. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. If you are looking for an affordable stay, convenient to the beach and things to do, then this is the place for you. We had an awesome experience and look forward to returning again.

This is a very nice clan and friendly place to stay. The rate very very reasonable, I check rate in Destin and they were very high. Staff was very friendly and rooms very clean and beds were changed every night. Nice pool and good parking. Would stay here again. Just over the bridge from great dinning and great shopping. I would recommend eating at McGuires for the best steak in the world and AJ'S for the best seafood and The Shed for great barbecue

We stayed here and were very pleased with the entire experience. The staff was polite and helpful, the rooms were clean ,comfy beds ,cold air,very nice for the price. The owner was also there and very hands on he was helpful with suggestions of resturants and attractions that were near to us . Breakfast was very good not your average continental though it offered much more . This place is a family place but we will also return for a weekend get away just my husband and me!!!

Room Tip: we stayed in room 604 very nice !!!!

We've been coming to FWB together for 20+ years to fish and vacation, and we have always stayed at Emerald Coast, because of all the things included in the ratings above. What more can one say, except that the staff have ALL been the greatest to work with!

Room Tip: Just let them know your needs/wants.

This was my fiance's and I first time to stay at this hotel. Overall the service and the hotel itself was very clean and nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that wants to be close to fort walton beach and destin.

Room Tip: Do not book online. Go into hotel.

Stayed here in april, and chose it based on reviews and how close it was to the beach from the hotel. Location was good, but not a lot real close. Most everything you would want to do or places to eat are in destin about five miles away. Check in was quick, lobby seemed nice. Pool is right by the road and very small. Was clean though. Hallways to rooms are paved, not carpet and doors are always open. This makes it very easy to hear people talking in the hall because everything echoed. First night was pretty quiet, no problems, but the next three nights, these young people that had separate rooms were constantly going back and forth slamming doors and laughing and yelling in the hall, all the way till 2am each night. Did not sleep much. Rooms was clean except toilet was not. They even wrap the toilet with a paper saying its clean but it wasn't. Everything else was ok. Beds are pretty hard though. Breakfast was si big dissapointment. We planned on eating it every day to save money, but we couldn't. Juice is some fake orange crap. Sausage patties tasted sweet and not like sausage, gross. Waffles were gross as well. Batter was old and nasty. Only thing ok was buscuits and gravy, but barely. So dont expect a good breakfast. If you are on a budget and want a decent hotel close to the beach then I would recommend this place.

I really like everything about this hotel...If you traveling on a budget and can not spend $$$$ at a 4 star hotel, this is the place to be in Fort Walton. The room was very clean, they offer a continental breakfast, the service was great starting from the front desk people to the room service...Excellent! They did everything they could to make our stay memorable. Thank you all!!

Thank you so very much for the outstanding review! We are so happy when one of our wonderful guests take the time to let us know about their stay. We are hoping you tried the Fresh Waffles or even the Sausage and Biscuits on the breakfast bar....Your kind words are music to our ears! I hope you come back soon. Bobby & Staff....
