We stayed 5 days, 4 nights...The hotel located, I would said it's right in the heart of Ft. Walton Beach. All Gift Shops, Restaurants, Attractions, Groceries... are just nearby, Ft. Walton Convention Center is right next door. The Hotel Staffs are nice and helpfull, great service. It has good hot breakfast, cerials, hot pancake...in the morning. The Hotel had 6 floors, all of the rooms are faced to East and West of the City, higher floor will give you better views. I was on 6th floor, so quite even during Spring Break Time and next to main highway. The room was clean, the beds were great so you can slept through the night. One of great thing was their Bath Towels are so puffy soft!!! They all were same quality on everyday of my stays!!! The beaches is just right the front of the Hotel, on the other side of the road. West of the hotel, just crossing the short bridge, you are is in the Old Ft. Walton Downtown. To the East, just for a short drive, you will be in Destin areas with big Outlet Mall, all kind of shops and nice sight-seeing on front beach road with convenience Public Beach Parks... About 25 miles from here, you should visited Water Colr and Seaside Towns(Seaside, Florida) and keep on East another 25 more miles, you will be in the "party city" of Panama City Beach... We were really enjoyed of our stays.
