“Good Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

We had a problem with the A/C in our room , we were moved to a better room at once. The help is friendly and wants to please. great location, and clean rooms. The rest of the rooms need to be upgrated they seem to be about 1/2 finished. View is great. The balcomy needs a screen door so that sea breeze and wavy sound can be better enjoyed.

Room Tip: 4th floor or as if upper floor has been upgraded yet

I have stayed at this place three times now and what a little gem it is. Situated right on the beach of Okaloosa Island where you have access to one of the finest white sand beaches in the world. Staff is kind, helpful and very service minded. If you don't feel like walking the few steps to the beach, you have a nice pool area where you can enjoy the sun with a cool drink from the Tiki Bar.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with balcony facing the Gulf!

My wife and I went for our 37th anniversary, and being the age we are we didn't need a whole lot of activity other than toes in the sand and cold drinks in our hands. This location was perfect for this. The hotel was great, service was very good, the beach was uncrowded, can't ask for more than that. If needed there were plenty of tourist distractions just a few miles away in the Destin area.

Awarm and beautiful place to be. Water clear and sand is white. No heavy tides and the hotel was clean and friendly. Colors were warm and quaint but everything was clean and well kept.
A few needed repairs were being done but staff was what made the vacation great. Dan on the beach was absolutely great. Quiet lady at breakfast was super. No negatives will go back again.

Room Tip: Make sure your as high as possible and face the ocean.

I searched for weeks for a reasonable hotel room since a condo is more than I needed. It was a pleasant surprise to find a reasonably priced hotel ON the beach that included breakfast and beach chairs. The building is old but well maintained and clean. Staff is friendly and we enjoyed our weekend get away. Our room (421) faced the street and was pleasantly quiet. However, the carpet needed a shampoo as my feet kept turning black. Overall, a good value and pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Save the money and skip the balcony. My street facing room was pleasantly quiet.

Currently at hotel second of three night stay. Reserved months ago and requested fourth floor room. Was given a second floor room which would have been okay except for the fact that our room is right above the lounge and we cannot even enjoy the balcony because of the loud music and people. Door is closed and we can still hear the very loud music. Also the lock on our room stopped working and had to be replaced. We're here last year at this same time and really liked it. Nice to be on the beach, but this visit is extremely disappointing.

Stayed in several Best Western hotels. This one is average. The really great things about this hotel is the staff and the location. Gorgeous beaches in this area and close to the boardwalk/pier area (withing walking distance down the beach). This hotel just needs a good scrubbing.
