We stayed in a condo style 2 bedroom apartment complete with a full kitchen. It is a short couple of minutes walk to the beach and restaurants. The hotel is older but it is very clean and suitable for families.

This is our second year staying with wakulla and it was great. The hotel may be a little older but the apartment style rooms are great. Outside barbeque grills for all the residents is awesome. A very family friendly and fun hotel. The flower & plant garden area is spectacular. 3 minute private beach access is unbeatable. The location is very central cocoa beach. It is close to all the cruise ships & only an our from Orlando.
What a great time. We will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms have full accommodations...including microwave, stove, & refrigerator.

We stayed in a two-bedroom suite for 5 nights. In addition to the two bedrooms, there was a living room with TV, a bathroom (of course) and a fully stocked eat-in kitchen - dishes, glasses, pots and pans . It was nice to be able to prepare our own breakfast. Two minute walk to the beach. Clean and basic accommodations. Great internet connection. There is a nice pool area with chairs. The staff is friendly and helpful. I think it is a good vale for the price. Would definitely recommend it to our friends and we are returning next year.

We stayed in a 2 bed apartment for 2 nights. Lovely space for our family of 4, with a pool view it was everything we wanted and more. Have to say this was great, just the thing we like in our family. Relaxed and carefree. A+++++.

My family and I stayed at the Wakulla Suites this past week and had a positive stay. We had chosen it based on reviews here and elsewhere touting it as a "family-friendly" location, and we were not disappointed on that point.

Below are the positive and negative aspects of our stay:

Positive stuff:

Price: we found a reasonable rate for our two-day stay
Company: the other guests were mostly families with children.
Space: our two-room suite was a perfect fit for our 5-person family
Cleanliness: The room and its other spaces were all clean; the pool and kiddy-pool were well-maintained, and the appliances were all in good working order.
Convenience: There is a small laundry room. We found the kitchen well-stocked with clean plates, cups, silverware, some cook ware, utensils, etc.
Staff: friendly and professional
Tropical garden, grounds: Very pretty, and there are several stainless steel propane grills scattered about. Lots of people use them to grill food.
Kitsch factor: there is a campy feel that we really liked about the place.

Negative points:

Disrepair: the decking around the pool is mostly pavers, and these are clean, mold-free, etc, HOWEVER, the wooden decking under the lounges is a major hazard. My son reached for a towel on the chaise and got a nasty splinter embedded in his foot.
Upkeep: the bathroom was clean but really outdated. The tiles looked dirty, but I found they were actually just worn in places. The sink was something normally demolished on HGTV.
Amenities: It would be great if this place had a small tiki hut or food service! There is no fitness center.
Beachfront: Okay, technically the Wakulla has beachfront, but most of the complex surrounds the beautiful courtyard and pool area. Most guests need to cross a small quiet street to reach the beach access. Only a small outbuilding occupies the eastern most part of the compound. However, it is not where I would want to be as the pool is the true draw.

Misc.

We used a Wakulla pack and play for our little guy and rented two chaises and an umbrella on the beach ($10-15 all day depending on the guy manning the rentals)

Would we go back? Yes, we are already planning to return-our 2, 8 , and 10 year old kids all had a blast, and so did we.

Room Tip: Lower level better for families with kids.

Upon arrival, we were told that we did not have a reservation, although we had booked our poolside room through Orbitz 2 months earlier. The hotel was very busy, but they were able to put us in a courtyard room, which was more than sufficient. The pool filled with kids gets very loud, so a courtyard room was actually better for us. It's a few buildings closer to the beach, too. Everyone at the hotel was very nice and accommodating. The rooms are very spacious, a small 2-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen. It was much more than I expected at a very reasonable price. Although dated, I would definitely recommend the suites for a week-long vacation. I would say here again and recommend it to friends.

Thanks very much for taking the time to tell us about your recent stay with us.

We apologize that there was confusion when you checked in and that we didn't receive your reservation from Orbitz. We are happy to hear that our front desk staff was able to accommodate your reservation anyway and put you in a courtyard suite which was a better location for your family.

We are thrilled that you would stay with us again and that you would recommend us to friends. Our staff members are wonderful and we take great pride in them.

Thanks again for letting us know about your stay. If we can be of any assistance, please contact us at 321-783-2230.
