“Hospitality Rules”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Everything about this hotel is special and even more, hospitable. From the sales team to group sales and corporate meeting space, Toni Richardson (sales manager) excelled in offering accommodations and hospitality to the group that I catered in her space this summer.

We chose Best Western in Fort Walton Beach to lodge during our weekend of our wedding. They were the ONLY hotel on the beachfront that cooperated with us regarding all the components and details that go into a wedding. They did not charge extra to use the beach in front of their property. They did not give us a problem with our wedding guests. They served us promptly with every request that we made with a pleasant attitude. The entire staff here went above and beyond all expectations here. The honeymoon suite (only 2 in the entire hotel) was amazing. Very clean room, deep jacuzzi tub, beachfront view, flat screen tv, refridgerator, microwave, and very spacious. The tiki bar was a very pleasant experience in its own. The bartender Don is an awesome character and will surely not be forgotten. The hotel has a bar inside of it called the "SwizzleStick Lounge". Its a lil small, but the service is amazing and there is live music every night. Upon check in, we were pleasantly surprised to see our names on the marquee outside at the best western sign, hadn't even checked in yet. This hotel's management really knows how to throw in lil tidbits here and there to make sure that your stay is well worthwhile. I highly recommend this location, this hotel, and i will surely stay again.

This hotel is a great stay. The rooms were very clean, not moldy or musty smell like most beach front hotels. The beds were very comfortable and linens clean. The breakfast was more than continental and a great way to start the morning and it was free. There was a pool bar and one inside for those of us who enjoy a cocktail while on vacation. The staff was very friendly. Kudos to Heather at the front desk. She went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. She also recommended a great local restaurant that was fairly priced, family friendly and great food. See my review under Ft. Walton Beach restaurants.

Room Tip: Ocean Front is the best!

I loved loved this hotel. The staff was so friendly and helped everyone right away. Anna and don and another blonde at the cabana bar was awesome!! The rooms were very clean and well kept. Loved the pool. Every where I looked there was staff cleaning or just working together to make everyone's stay great. Every staff member spoke to me every single time they saw me. I will definitely stay here again!!! Oh and I don't know her name cut the girl that helped me when I checked out with long blonde hair was fantastic helping me with my cabana t shirts I bought 2 Instead of one!!! Canaba bar was also fantastic!!!!!5 stars!!!! The asst manager was great also!

I stayed there for memorial weekend. I was impressed at first. However, on our last say we encountered a very big bug which was the size of a big roach. This really affected our first visit you Destin. As for me returning to this hotel after what we went through the chances are not good. Very dissatisfied.

Thank you for your feedback. We are truly sorry about your run in with one of our Florida palmetto insects. I can reassure you that this is a rare occurance. We do retain a professional pest control company. We hope this will not deter you from a future visit.

This was a great hotel, very reasonable prices, the rooms are fairly basic, but very clean, and really how much time do you really spend in the room on vacation. What makes the hotel great is the staff and location. The staff is great from the cleaning ladies to the beach attendant. They bend over backwards to make sure you are taken care of. You walk out the back door and the beach is right there and if you get tired of the beach, you can just hang out at the pool that has a Tiki bar with a great Bartender, The hotel is in walking distance of a couple of great resturants and you a very short drive from everything. But again the staff here really makes this a great place to stay. We had such a great time we plan on going back in July.

Great customer service and great location. The beach gorgeous and the water was clear and felt awesome!!! I cant wait to return in a couple of months. I have to admit I was a little worried about the hotel because of some the previous reviews, but I'm glad I took a chance and kept my reservation. The rooms were clean and the view from the balcony was refreshing and gorgeous, This will be my new home away from home. Good job Best-western!!!!!!
