“Stay at Best Western”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

The man at the desk was very kind. When we checked in we were offered an oceanfront room at no additional cost. The room was nice and clean. Breakfast was very good with many items to choose from. Helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

The hotel was a nice place to stay. The beach is beautiful, the breakfast is well done. The staff is very accommodating. The only short fall was the bathroom - it needs some updating. No ventilation, shower and sink fixtures did not work very well. Shower water pressure was good, sink water pressure was lousy.

Stayed five nights and enjoyed every minute! The staff at the hotel was very friendly and helpful. I stayed in a beach front room and it was well worth the extra cost. The view from the balcony was picture perfect!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. What a good find this was! We had a great check-in experience. The reception staff was very helpful and extremely friendly! During our stay, they were always there with a smile and assisted wherever they could. Even when we were just slowly passing by the reception desk, every time there was a 'another great day in paradise' greeting.
We booked a water view room and checked into our room on the 6th floor - with balcony. The room was good size, very clean, nice and comfy beds, and a clean bathroom. Everything what we were hoping for. Yes, the décor is 50th/60th time but my wife and I all of a sudden felt much younger!! Including the decoration in the main lobby follows this decorative style. Very nice! A couple of other reviews mention that an update would be in order (carpets etc.) They are right now in the process of renovating - including new carpets etc.
The wifi in the room was a bit weak but worked well. The included breakfast was good with a change of items every day.
Overall, the hotel is in a very nice location, right on the miles long white sand beach. There is a heated pool and cabana bar adjacent to the hotel's Swizzel Stick Lounge. My wife and I had a couple of great evenings there. Don, the bartender, is a real pro, very friendly and personable. In no time one gets into conversation with other people at the bar. What a great entertaining place - with an entertainer - every night from 8 to xx.
We were reluctant to leave but the responsibilities were calling. If and when we get back into the area, we will definitely stay there again. We will also recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: Definitely a Gulf view with the balcony!

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
