The hotel was really nice and affordable for a beachfront hotel. Family oriented which was a major plus. I really enjoyed the complimentary chairs and umbrella service especially with a one year old. The water was cold but the heated pool was really nice. It was our first visit but will definitely be back. The staff was very friendly and... More

This was the first time we've stayed here and it was great. My husband really liked setting on the balcony and looking over the ocean. The staff was very nice, and the kids loved the breakfast. The laundry room was very convenient, and it is always nice to just walk out and be on the beach. The only thing that... More

Ft. Walton Beach Best Western exceeded our expectations of a chain hotel. The price during spring break was very reasonable for a beachfront view with a balcony. We were particularly impressed by the friendliness of the hotel staff, the retro decor of the lobby & rooms, and the complimentary deck chairs with umbrellas set up every morning on the beach...

The rooms were ok and the hotel staff was great and very hardworking. The hotel manager was amazing and was constantly checking on guests and helping during busy breakfast times. We stayed for 1 week and only saw 2 housekeepers, which were the same ladies working at breakfast, so they definitely earn their pay (and good tips, hopefully). The room... More

Everything was great. The room was extremely clean and all the staff was extremely nice. We stayed on the fifth floor beachfront side and the view was amazing! The beach was very clean as well and two chairs and a umbrella was included. On this beach most people were dressed modestly which meant a lot. We will definitely be coming... More

The hotel is beautiful, many privelages but, if you are Latino please don't go there me and my family of 4 are hispanics and we got kicked out rudely by the manager. He was the rudest man I've ever met. And don't get me started on the bartenders, getting all the men drunk and being rude to the ladies. I... More
