Hotel property is clean and comfortable. Location is so so but price makes up for a little extra drive. Staff friendly and helpful. Not too far of a drive from beaches and dining. Met my expectations and breakfast options plentiful

Visiting friends at Labor Day on short notice, I used Marriott's website to book the room with my Marriott Rewards number. This hotel is on the north side of Fort Walton Beach, in Shalimar, about ten minutes north of the beach. I got a great deal on the price, literally 1/3 of the going rate on the beach for the...

The hotel was in a great location. The staff promptly delivered a pack n play we requested. The only negative is the bar located next door. They had live music, which is great, but not when you are trying to get two young kids to sleep. We would still recommend this hotel, but ask we recommend you ask for a... More

We stayed for two nights at this property, and we were very pleased. We were visiting in Destin, so the hotel location was not great for us, but, we like Marriott properties, and the drive to the hotel was not really much of a negative for us. Check-in was simple, front desk staff was very hospitable and the public areas... More

Overall, the hotel was nice and clean. I read a review that said not to stay in a room that faced a neighboring lounge so I stayed on the first floor. There is a lot of traffic on the first floor and the lounge wasn't noisy. So if I stay there again, I will take my chances with the lounge... More

The staff exceeds our expectations every time we stay in Shalimar at the Fairfield Inn! They are extremely professional and more customer oriented than many of their competitors. I'm always making changes to my reservations as my work requires and they work closely to make sure my room was held for my arrival. Our family knows we will be treated... More

We had the best experience staying at this hotel. The room looked to have been recently remodeled, it was clean, quiet, and the hotel is totally non-smoking. The staff was excellent, exceeding all expectations. So as not to be "over the top" with this review, about the only thing that could have been better would have been plusher towels as... More

Property has been fully remodeled recently, and looks great! About 15 minutes to the beach. Burger King right across the street, several restaurants within a mile radius. Didn't use the pool. Wifi was fine for the limited time I used it. Breakfast was good, in line with Fairfield's new hot breakfast offerings. Our single King room was a tad in... More

Beautiful remodeling just completely. Lovely staff, very attentive. Expanded hot breakfast choices-oatmeal, scrambled eggs, bacon, and waffles. Beautiful rooms, well designed. Well insulated property, no traffic noises. They've also got a mini-market near check-in with quickie food choices-heat n eat, ice cream... nice touch. WiFi flawless, always a business bonus.
