We decided to come to Ft. Walton for the weekend on a whim and decided to book a room at the Wyndham because they were the only beachfront hotel with a heated pool that had a room available and it was the last open room! We spoke with Sherry at the front desk who was extremely helpful and answered all...

First impressions are everything, that being said once I walked through the doors and up to the front desk, I smiled and explained to the young lady at the front desk, my name and that I had a reservation, she barely looked at me and said "Picture ID and credit card" and that was it, not another word!

Good place to stay. Only problems were very slow service in the restaurant (which is run by a third party) and almost zero wifi connectivity (in the lobby of all places and in my room in building 3). This being said, I would consider staying there again.

The Jr. Suite was roomy enough, bathroom was VERY small! Carpeting needed cleaning and the kitchenette was adequate but one of the cabinet door come off. On the day we were leaving the elevators were not running, so even though they carried the bags down for us, it was still as walk down step stairs for ourselves and our 80...

Room was fine. Called down to ask for a room service menu/restaurant menu so we could plan breakfast. Front desk clerk stated that the menus run out quickly and he would see if he could find one. No further contact. We ate offsite.

I chose this hotel based on value and location. The accommodations were comfortable and the staff was attentive. Since we were on the Gulf of Mexico side the view and sunsets were amazing.
