Reviewed April 27, 2014

Hotel is pretty new. So looks modern and clean. Friendly people. Breakfast is OK, but could be a little better as daily missing some product. Acoustic isolation is deficient. Poor gym, not even a couple weights, just elliptical, seat bike and treadmill.

We travel down to Ft. Walton every year and decided to check this new Holiday Inn Express out. What a great decision! The rooms were very clean and spacious, beds and pillows were so comfortable, and breakfast was great! I slept so well on the pillows and bed after a 10 hour drive down with the kids. The interior design of the hotel was very modern and felt very hip and new. Breakfast was great with a variety of hot and cold foods. Everything was so clean inside and out. Paula, the front desk clerk, was very helpful at recommending family friendly restaurants and activities for the kids. Check in with her was also a breeze and took just a few minutes, which was great since we arrived late at night. Will definitely come back and stay here!!

We could not have asked the staff at this HIE to be anymore attentive or to have been anymore welcoming. Our room was exceptionally clean, spacious, the beds were extremely comfortable, loved having a choice of pillows, and we had a microwave, refrigerator, and coffee pot. The breakfast provided each morning was really good. Convenience to Eglin Air Force Base, where our grandson is stationed, and to the beach was a plus for us. I did have some issues with the internet, but when I needed it and was unable to connect from our room I would go to the business center down the hall. Parking was really convenient, too, which is important for us. We stayed 5 nights and would definitely stay here again the next time we visit the area.

This is what every hotel should aspire to be: clean, well maintained, friendly and with a great breakfast. We have a 2 and a 4 yeard old. Rooms were spacious, crib was new, beds were comfortable and it had a microwave and a fridge. It was a few miles away from the beach but not enough to bother us. The staff was friendly and helpful with plenty of suggestions on what to do with our kids on rainy days. We had good internet even on the third floor. The room was quiet and we had more sleep there than in our own home. Overall, we would stay here again any day.

We started our stay at a different hotel and moved here after one night. This HIE is a nice new hotel. The rooms were very clean and spacious and the staff was very helpful and attentive. Location-wise it's not terribly close to the beach but it was a good stay for our family.

Absolutely love this place. Great staff nice stay. If you want a awesome breakfast or lunch go to the Neighborhood Cafe which is right down the street from here. Look it up you won't be disappointed. I would recommend this to everyone especially for the price. Again lovely staff and a great breakfast lunch place right down the street. Sorry to keep rambling but trying to meet the minimum to post lol

On the surface, this hotel looked appealing. It is new and clean. The rooms are decent size. Breakfast is great. There is a small fitness room. But the walls are paper thin; the front desk staff is abysmal; and the maids are bullies. We stayed there for 5 days to attend a funeral and visit with family. Two of the 5 nights had unbelievably loud people checking in at midnight and getting up at 4 am. Numerous complaints at the front desk brought no relief. The staff acknowledged that they had many complaints! Another night at 4 am and we were awake again. You can hear every conversation in the room next door. Then, because my daughter dirtied a towel with make-up, the maid decided to punish us by removing all towels from the room. Yes, you heard that right. She intentionally removed and did not replace the towels. Don't waste your money. There are plenty of other hotels in town.
