“Ok location good price”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Hotel property is clean and comfortable. Location is so so but price makes up for a little extra drive. Staff friendly and helpful. Not too far of a drive from beaches and dining. Met my expectations and breakfast options plentiful

Visiting friends at Labor Day on short notice, I used Marriott's website to book the room with my Marriott Rewards number. This hotel is on the north side of Fort Walton Beach, in Shalimar, about ten minutes north of the beach. I got a great deal on the price, literally 1/3 of the going rate on the beach for the weekend. The hotel property was manicured, with palm trees and nice landscaping, and a sparkling clean parking lot. The hotel lobby was clean and had trendy decor. The staff were welcoming and wonderful. The room was immaculate and quiet as can be. We were on the third floor at the back, overlooking the Cheers lounge next door. No noise detected. Will stay here again when I'm in the Fort Walton Beach area.

The hotel was in a great location. The staff promptly delivered a pack n play we requested. The only negative is the bar located next door. They had live music, which is great, but not when you are trying to get two young kids to sleep. We would still recommend this hotel, but ask we recommend you ask for a room that is on the main entrance side, not the pool side. FYI: the music stopped around 10pm.

We stayed for two nights at this property, and we were very pleased. We were visiting in Destin, so the hotel location was not great for us, but, we like Marriott properties, and the drive to the hotel was not really much of a negative for us. Check-in was simple, front desk staff was very hospitable and the public areas were recently renovated and looked very good. Our room was very clean and comfortable, and it was also recently renovated. I will definately plan on staying here in future trips to the area.

Overall, the hotel was nice and clean. I read a review that said not to stay in a room that faced a neighboring lounge so I stayed on the first floor. There is a lot of traffic on the first floor and the lounge wasn't noisy. So if I stay there again, I will take my chances with the lounge noise. Other than that, the hotel was clean and the staff was really nice.

Room Tip: Stay on a floor other than the first.

The staff exceeds our expectations every time we stay in Shalimar at the Fairfield Inn! They are extremely professional and more customer oriented than many of their competitors. I'm always making changes to my reservations as my work requires and they work closely to make sure my room was held for my arrival. Our family knows we will be treated exceptionally well and look forward to our visit. Clean and recently renovated. Great work everyone at Fairfield!

We had the best experience staying at this hotel. The room looked to have been recently remodeled, it was clean, quiet, and the hotel is totally non-smoking. The staff was excellent, exceeding all expectations. So as not to be "over the top" with this review, about the only thing that could have been better would have been plusher towels as found in more expensive hotels. They did appear to be almost new, just not thick. Really not that big of a deal. We will be staying at this property again.
