Good value for the money . Location on the beach is the best feature. Older hotel that has been updated. We were there two nights. Our room was never serviced by the housekeeping service. Front desk personnel very friendly. Nice poolside bar.

If you come to Ft. Walton Beach for the beach then you will find one of the best beaches in the U.S. here! The hotel is very convenient to the beach but nothing to "write home about". The breakfast and the beach are this hotel's best features. There is also evening entertainment in the bar!

We had an ove view room during our stay. This place thinks of everything! Free popcorn daily, movies at night for the kids, free beach chair and umbrellas, decent breakfast, great beds. Parking was ample and free. My only complaint is that you can't see sunsets from this area. The beach was impeccable and way less crowded then our previous...

Vera at the front desk was very kind, helpful and wonderful. She made sure we had everything we needed and made our stay special. On the other hand, the woman who sets up the breakfast was very loud, hateful and rude. She has no value for the guests at this hotel. I believe her name is Melodie. We came down...

NIce staff, clean, close to attractions, easy beach access, they offer free breakfast. only downside is the ice machines provided aren't that great, most times ice was out and they don't have one in every floor. Overall is a great place to stay.

This was our first time in Ft. Walton Beach and the Best Western was really a great stay for us. We're geared more toward the family hotels and this one did not disappoint us - (9pm to 9am quiet time<G>). There was plenty of amenities, the breakfast was good w/lots of variety, and location was excellent. The added perk of...

This Best Western is a good value if you are looking for something directly on the beach. We only stayed two nights, so it was perfect for us. This is definitely an older hotel that has been maintained fairly well. We had a problem with a broken door handle and were literally stuck in our rooms until my husband figured...
