We stayed two days just prior to Christmas. Very quiet time, didn't seem to be very busy although there were several cars in the parking lot in the morning, just never saw or heard anyone! Breakfast was typical Hampton Inn style. Didn't appear to be a big staff, always saw the same friendly faces and I guess that is a good thing! The breakfast lady was very pleasant and insisted on making my waffles each morning. Hotel itself was clean and comfy. Location was close to the my son's apartment and convenient to the air base and Northwest Florida Regional Airport (VPS). We plan on going back to Niceville in the summer and plan to stay here again.
