“Excellent Beach Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I give this hotel an overall rating of 4.0 stars! One of the best Four Points resorts I have ever stayed in. I really enjoyed this hotel, located in Ft. Walton beach right before the 98 bridge that takes you into Destin. I found this hotel to be in a very decent location if you are vacationing in the Destin area. The Hotel itself is very large and the grounds are well maintained and beautiful. We splurged for the oceanfront room which had a spectacular view from the balcony. The rooms are very spacious and appear to have been recently renovated. The oceanfront rooms have their own parking lot directly under the building with direct access to the beach and the pool. The beach in front of the hotel is very clean and has plenty of room to enjoy all of your family activities. Breakfast was outstanding, the hotel offers a full breakfast buffet for an additional charge and I would highly recommend it if you want an enjoyable breakfast with many options to choose from. The staff here at this hotel is well above average; very helpful and professional and they make sure you are well taken care of. The hotel even offers a unique texting service where you can text the front desk from your mobile phone to ask for assistance or just general questions. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a very nice resort on the beach right next to Destin. In June of 2013 there was construction going on at the hotel for a kid’s water splash zone in the center of the grounds. This hotel will definitely not disappoint.

Room Tip: ocean front rooms are worth the money

We stayed here during the Labor Day Weekend and it was a great stay. However we arrived a few hours earlier than anticipated and had to wait until the 4:00 check in time. We stayed on the 6th floor and had a beautiful view of the beach and the sunsets were amazing. The refrigerator was the perfect size. I will stay again but next time I will arrive right at check in and not any earlier.
One negative aspect was the gym area, not at all like I expected and needs to be updated.

Thank you for your reivew of our hotel. I apologize we could not get you checked in earlier. We always provide an early check-in if we have the rooms available but that is sometimes difficult to do in the busy season. We are working on some more improvements in our fitness center as well so I hope you will come back soon to see those. Regards, Jeremy Skinner - General Manager

The hotel is older but well maintained. The rooms face the outside rather than a hallway. But still very nice. The outdoor bar was great. But unfortunately it closed at 7 every night. That seemed strange, but the bartender said it was because they were a "family hotel." But they provided beach service until 5, which was awesome. All in all, a good place to be in the beach.

Thank you for such a great reivew. We do close Kiwis Tiki Bar at 7:00pm since it is surrounded by guest rooms and we don't want to disturb those rooms later in the evening. I am happy to see you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to your next visit. Regards, Jeremy Skinner - General Manager

This was our pre vacation before the week long family beac vacation in Destin, FL. It is an old property that has been upgraded but still lives with the old concrete structure. The staff was excellent. From the front desk to the ladies in the dining room for breakfast, everyone made us feel welcome. We hope to come back again!

Room Tip: Go for one of the end of floor suites !

The facility is somewhat odd looking. When you pull in there is a circular entry to check in and behind that are garden style (old school motel looking buildings with two floors) beyond that is a tired looking 6 story beach facing hotel. Upon walking in to the building to check in you get to appreciate the facility despite its aged facility. There are two pools, impeccably kept yards between the two old motel buildings and beyond that is the outdoor bar and beach. We had drinks at each of the bars and the bartenders were very helpful and gave great restaurant suggestions. We also ate the buffet, they could do better-eggs were left on the warming tray too long and were almost crusty and the fruit seemed like it was sitting for a while as well ( and we were there at 8:30 am).

Our room was in great condition, bed was very comfy and we really enjoyed the ocean view. Overall we found the staff very nice and helpful. Despite its ugly wrapper it is a nice facility and I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Join SPG and utilize the bump up to ocean front. I am certain staying in the garden units would have...

Thank you for such a great review of our hotel. I have shared your breakfast comments with our chef so she knows to keep a closer eye on those. We are undergoing some great renovations in the off-season that will greatly improve that "ugly wrapper" you mentioned in your review. We want the drive-up to be just as beautiful as the grounds and our guestrooms. Thank you again for taking the time to review our hotel. We look forward to your next visit.

Hotel was like a Motel. Clean but not worth it. Picture on website very deceiving. Would not stay there again. Construction going on in Hotel and next to it. Very humid and very outdated. Only lobby looked decent, room very old fashioned.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I apologize we did not meet your expectations. I think the picture you are mentioning in your review is the one taken of our six story beachfront tower. We do also have two buildings that have views of our beautifully landscaped courtyards and pool areas. We try to make that very clear on the room descriptions when you are booking so you know you are getting a "garden view" room and not the "beachfront view" room. We hope you will come back and try one of the beachfront rooms in the future and see if we can change your mind. Regards, Jeremy Skinner - General Manager
