The air conditioner never worked right. It was humid and hot each night even after speaking with maintenance after the first night. If you didn't lay on the bed just right, the lamp would flicker on and off. And the television in the bedroom had static on the majority of the channels. The hotel blamed that on the Cox service but the TV in the living area worked fine. The sleeping situation was miserable! For the money, it should've worked!

My room was a nice size, bed was good, restroom nice size and clean. I was on a working trip and at the end of my day when I returned to my room it always smelled bad. I was able to open the balcony door (nice weather) and solve this. I fill like the carpet was the problem of the smell. My room was close to the pool, it was nice that management would ask folks to leave the pool at 10 pm so that folks good get some sleep.

Staying at this hotel made me sign up for tripadvisor (thank you tripadvisor) and leave this review. Most of the time I`m using reviews to check the restaurants in the area, because I`m not very picky when It`s about booking a hotel right on the beach, how long you`ll stay in the room, right? My first stay at Wyndham and I can say that was excellent. I`m glad that we picked Fort Walton beach instead of Destin, don`t get me wrong I love Destin but fort Walton is less crowded and more family friendly.

My husband and I were in Fort Walton Beach for a few days. We decided to stay at Wyndham Garden, for convenience. Everything was a delight. Check-in was easy and cordial, every hotel employee from the front desk to the cleaning staff was a pleasure to deal with. We will definitely come back!

Room Tip: choose higher floors, you`ll love the beautiful view of the gulf.
