In town for a special event located near the hotel, but prior ratings did influence my choice. They did not disappoint. The lobby, breakfast area, and other common areas were very clean. I was very pleased with my room. The bathroom was immaculate and well stocked with towels. The bed was very comfortable as were the pillows. The refrigerator was a great convenience to have as I like to bring bottled water with me. My only complaint was that the curtains are decorative only--they are only about 18"-24" wide and you have no way to darken your room or provide privacy at night. I had the same issue at another hotel chain...not really sure why they are doing that now. Otherwise, for an "in town" hotel--highly recommend! If you plan on going to the beach, I would choose something closer to the beach as traffic was thick headed that direction.

First I would like to Thank you for sharing your experience at La Quinta Fort Walton. I noticed you addressed an issue with Black out curtains.

Black out curtains are located behind sheer curtanis closer to the glass. We do apologize for not making it readily visible.

We have corrected that by keeping Black out curtains partially closed in all our guest rooms, so that it can be seen.

Thank you for bringing it to our attention. At La Quinta "WE ARE HERE FOR YOU"

I was looking for a nice place to stay for a few days before school started. I wanted a hotel with a pool, not far from the beaches and restaurants-this was it! The hotel is located close to everything: the beach, shopping, restaurants and our friend that lives in Navarre Beach. The property was great and the staff was friendly.

Room Tip: If you don't have a pet with you, as we did, request to put on a non-pet floor.

Customer service front desk was always helpful and kind. Breakfast was very good lots of choices. Refrigerator worked great and room was quiet. We stayed for 2 days and really enjoyed it here. It's a short drive to Destin and Beaches.

For the most part we enjoyed our two night stay. The weather was good so we were able to enjoy the pool & spa. The location, although not on the beach, is a good "central" location. It's close to many good restaurants & shopping. We liked the proximity to Okaloosa Island & city parks. (Many w/in walking distance. It's close to Eglin. The hotel is about halfway between Pensacola & PCB! Our manx cat loved the view out the window. There were a few barking dogs & dog altercations however mgmt. called a family back to the hotel to quieten their pooch!! Nice! While we were there, there were a few LARGE rowdy groups that "took over" the pool & spa. We didn't particularly like the fact that some people had their babies in the spa! The water was way too warm for babies..you can use your imagination what might be in that water! Several children were unsupervised and obviously could not swim! (One of the women...a mother I presume, told her children to "hold on to the side of the pool!") I know the hotel mgmt. can't control everything, but it was getting a little out of hand. Other than that, we had a good time!

I stayed with my family for three nights at the La Quinta - Ft. Walton Beach and we were very satisfied with the hotel. From check in, to restaurant recommendations, and accomodating us for an extra day of stay the staff was very kind and helpful. The breakfast was normal hotel breakast fair and satisfied everyone. We chose this hotel for the price and the amenity of the in room fridge. It was nice to only have to eat dinner out as we used the fridge to house our snacks and lunch supplies. The only negative is the hotel is about a mile from the closest beach access - it was not a huge issue, but for a runner who wanted to get morning beach runs in it was inconvienent because to get to the beach you had to travel busy Hwy 98. I would return to this hotel if in the area and recommend it to friends and family.
