“Beachfront property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

We had a wonderful stay at the Best Western at Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. Our room was upgraded to a gulf side, 6th floor affording us a vista of the water, beach and sun. We visited a neighborhood restaurant on the recommendation of our check in staff and found good food in a cozy atmosphere. We had lunch in Valparaiso, Florida so we could experience another Valparaiso.

The facility suffers from typical effects of salt air and a more casual way of life but the location and the staff just couldn't have been better. The price was very affordable, too. Room was comfortable; no issues and the view was spectacular. Staff directed us to various local seafood restaurants (Stewby's, A.J.'s and Anglers). Air museum is close by with about 20 airplanes outside - a fun trip, too.

My husband & I travel about 40-50 days every winter & have stayed in many different properties. We don't mind older properties if they are kept updated but we found Best Western Walton Beach in dire need of an update, right from the lobby to the rooms. We had a gulf view room which had an amazing view and was very clean. However someone had tried to freshen it up by painting the bathroom door white, which would be OK if it was kept clean. The back side of the door was black (gross). The frame of the mirror in the room was also painted but not very well, looked very unprofessional. The breakfast was mediocre and the seating area small & uncomfortable. Would probably find another place to stay if was in the area. Not sure how it's rated #2 in Fort Walton

I was traveling though the area and called for a last minute reservation. I spoke with a very nice front desk attendant that apologized for not having a beachfront room available, this was understandable as I was calling after 8pm the night I wanted to check in. She held a room on a courtesy hold for me. Upon arrival I was greeted by the very nice lady that made my reservation and her co worker. I was very impressed by how welcoming and friendly they both were. This staff really has the "customer service aspect figured out "!. I had occasion to speak with the General Manager and it was evident that great customer service starts at the top at this hotel. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. I felt like the parking lot was very secure and safe. I was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful rate. This hotel has a GREAT location right on the beach.

Room Tip: Even if a beachfront room isn't available don't discount this hotel. The rooms that don'...

We had a great experience. The hotel is a little older, but it's staff understands that customer service goes a long way to making any hotel stay great. They were so helpful and pointed out nearby restaurants and attractions and went as far as to surprise my husband and I with a bottle of champagne for Valentine's weekend. Great staff and you couldn't find a better place to catch an Emerald Coast sunrise or sunset. Thanks BW staff!

Spent two very nice days at the Best Western Ft. Walton Beachfront Hotel. The hotel has a great location right on the beach. A heated swimming pool is also available. We had an ocean front room overlooking the pool and beach. The beach area here is suburb with very soft white sand. Although the water was cold, it is February, but the surf was mild making for great beach walking.

The room was fairly small but well decorated with a spectacular ocean view. The lobby area was colorfully decorated and staff was very pleasant. All in all a very good place to stay.

My husband, adult daughter and I stayed at this hotel for a long weekend in January. The beachfront location is quite spectacular! The weather was cool, but we took a long walk along the pristine beach and enjoyed the beautiful sunset on the gulf. The hotel was reasonably priced, the room was clean and the staff was attentive and very helpful. When we checked in, our room was upgraded to an oceanfront room with a balcony. Very generous and fortunate for us! I do not disagree with other reviewers that it could benefit from a bit of updating, but this was not important to us. Breakfast was complimentary and was comparable to that offered by other hotel brands. All in all, we were quite satisfied with our stay at the Best Western Beachfront.
