Vacation was end of May. Weather was perfect. Beach was perfect. Hotel was perfect. Located right on beach. Beach Umbrella, to chairs were provided. Also as a bonus, breakfast was provided. Parking was convenient. Would definitely stay here on my next trip to Ft. Walton

This was our second trip to the Best Western at Ft. Walton Beach and it won't be our last. We enjoy the convenience and the amenities of having two beach chairs and an umbrella included in the cost of the room. The breakfast is adequate, the hotel is clean and the staff are very helpful!

My husband and I decided to go to Ft. Walton for a vacation getaway before hurricane season. This was our first time there and was definitely worth the 9 1/2 hour drive from Texas. White sandy beaches and no seaweed. The weather was great. We recommend getting a beach front room. Definitely work the price and try to get on... More

Thank You for your review. We appreciate your choosing our hotel for your vacation stay. It is quite true, our area offers so much for folks who are not inclined to go to the beach. Fabulous restaurants, attractions and shopping are all within quick driving distance. Something for everyone! Please do come and visit with us again. More

Beachfront hotel so I assume all the rooms have a balcony and sea view but you should ensure you get one as the view is amazing. Hotel has direct access to a stunning beach and free beach chairs/umbrella. The price is mid-range and that is what you get. Decorations are probably not to everyone's taste and the complimentary breakfast is... More

We opted for this Best Western after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Everything you read is true. Wonderful ocean view from our room's balcony. Fabulous drinks and entertainment at their outdoor, and indoor, bars. Movies shown at night. Free breakfast, fresh popped popcorn you can take to the beach. Unbelievably helpful staff. Fridge and microwave in room, comfortable, queen beds. Great... More

Stayed on top floor, beach front, and it was better than expected! The crowds were very light this time of year (first week in May) so we walked right into all restaurants and stores. Hotel has a small pool plus beachfront- they also provided a large umbrella and two chairs on the beach per room- not sure if that is... More

This Best Western had very good prices, compared to the other hotels and properties in the area. The location was ideal - just west of the bridge from Ft. Walton and right on the beach. Dan the beach man was very friendly - he made sure you had your own umbrella set up with beach chairs. That was a nice... More
