“Definitely Look Forward to Staying Here Again!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Room was superclean, bed was comfortable, breakfast was delicious. Every member of the staff that we encountered (including the room service personnel) was friendly and helpful! We had an amazing view of the beach on our private balcony. The lobby was decorated with beautiful colorful glass vases and interesting maps. I have been telling all my friends about this hotel and will continue to recommend it to anyone I hear will be traveling to the Panhandle! I truly hope to be able to stay here again in the future!

We only stayed for one night but we can say - for the price:

Great location. It is right on the beach and it is a beautiful white powder sandy beach with clear, turquoise waters.
Price includes a really good continental breakfast. BEST coffee, better than SB.
Rooms are nice and comfortable. Not the Ritz, but comfortable.
Service is wonderful.
If you are looking for something economical on the beach and close to restaurants, this is a great place to stay at. Try to book a room with a view to the beach.

I have stayed at this hotel numerous times and have always been well pleased. We stayed this time to get married on the beach in front of the hotel New Years Day! We will definitely be staying here in the future and highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay oceanfront in the Fort Walton Area!

We stayed here for proximity to the beach and to the excellent restaurants within a few blocks. It was a good choice. We asked for and got a room on the beach front. We would have wanted a window that opened so we could hear the ocean without having to open the balcony door. It was cold during our December visit, so opening the door was an invitation to cold winds. Overall, the hotel is on the older side and shows it in various ways. But the staff was friendly and helpful throughout. We quickly realized our room had a refrigerator with a loud buzz. We asked for and got a replacement quickly. We arrived late and were hungry; we were directed to the nearby High Tide Restaurant and had a fine meal. We asked about the oranges available in the lobby and were directed to a nearby local produce market. The hotel has a heated pool, which got a few takers. It has a breakfast brunch that doesn't win awards, but it will do in a pinch. It has a bar that seemed to pack in a locals crowd. And the beach, well, it was great, despite the cold. We found the beds clean and comfortable. Overall the facility was cleaned and well maintained, but it shows its age (don't we all).

We recently stayed at this hotel and we did not get a gulf room view, which I think was a big mistake. Overall, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful, the colors were beautiful and the hotel's proximity to the beach can't be beat. My problem was that I found the hotel to be dirty, especially our room and overall, not very well maintained. For the price though, you can't beat it, being beachfront.

This hotel is perfectly placed with excellent beach access, lovely room views. Staff went over and above. Beds and linens were very comfortable and clean--overall it was very clean. The room was musty--probably due to the time of year and little air circulation. Reasonable price for a one night stay. The coffee wasn't very good and no tea downstairs evenings. Breakfast was usual hotel fare. We would return happily!

I was pleased with the hotel having stayed there over the Christmas holiday. The staff was friendly and helpful the whole week. The beds were comfortable and place was clean. It is an older hotel but enjoyed the decor and history around the place. Being on the beach was great and thankful for getting a room with the view of the beach!

Room Tip: Room on the higher floor gives a better view when on the beach side!
