Fort Walton Beach, Florida
Reviewed March 18, 2016

Location was nice, but I was accidentally or fraudulently charged for an expensive meal in the downstairs restaurant so my bill was outrageous. I reported the discrepancy to management, they assured me I wouldn't be charged for the meal. I was charged for the meal anyway. Will not return

The ocean view room with the balcony was nice. The too is just okay. The pictures make it seems like the water is really blue when it isn't. It's right on the beach. The pool is nice they showed movies by the pool. Pretty close to everything as well.

The mattress was unnecessarily soft and unsupported which created a big sink-hole in the middle of the bed. The bathroom was barely cleaned sufficiently. The maid left toothpaste residue from the morning, indicating sink wasn't cleaned. She left piles of HER...
