“Good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here because of the reviews. We are not disappointed. Good value. The breakfast is sufficient, rooms are clean, you can tell the older inn has had meaningful updates. For the price and good location, can't be beat.

Great location. Comfortable rooms. We stayed a night here while other family members were in a condo not far away. It was convenient to everything we needed. The beach is close and there is plenty to do in the area.

This small hotel is amongst the larger resort style hotels in Fort Walton but its location, cleanliness, and amazing staff help it rank up above those other hotels. With it being Spring Break 2013 I assumed it would be noisy however everything stayed quiet and no complaints had to be made. The room was always clean, with fresh towels and fresh linens and I have to say that I was much more impressed with their service than I had been at other hotels I have stayed at. The staff were all friendly from the moment that you walk in to check-in to the hotel to the time that you leave!!! If I could give this place more than 5 stars I would just so everyone knows that small things do come in great packages!!!

Room Tip: There was no issue involving location of the room as the entire floor was a family friendly floor.

We stayed 5 days, 4 nights...The hotel located, I would said it's right in the heart of Ft. Walton Beach. All Gift Shops, Restaurants, Attractions, Groceries... are just nearby, Ft. Walton Convention Center is right next door. The Hotel Staffs are nice and helpfull, great service. It has good hot breakfast, cerials, hot pancake...in the morning. The Hotel had 6 floors, all of the rooms are faced to East and West of the City, higher floor will give you better views. I was on 6th floor, so quite even during Spring Break Time and next to main highway. The room was clean, the beds were great so you can slept through the night. One of great thing was their Bath Towels are so puffy soft!!! They all were same quality on everyday of my stays!!! The beaches is just right the front of the Hotel, on the other side of the road. West of the hotel, just crossing the short bridge, you are is in the Old Ft. Walton Downtown. To the East, just for a short drive, you will be in Destin areas with big Outlet Mall, all kind of shops and nice sight-seeing on front beach road with convenience Public Beach Parks... About 25 miles from here, you should visited Water Colr and Seaside Towns(Seaside, Florida) and keep on East another 25 more miles, you will be in the "party city" of Panama City Beach... We were really enjoyed of our stays.

Room Tip: Higher floor better views. Better stay on 4th to 6th floor. I was on 6th(highest), so quite...even I...

Our stay was for Christmas week, a "staycation". We got a great rate. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room clean and comfortable. Fridge, microwave, coffee pot, hair dryer in the room. Soft, fluffy comforters on the beds -- NOT the nasty polyester bedspreads found in most economy motels. Pretty quiet. Safe, though right on the main thoroughfare. Near the beach, though this wasn't important to us. We were shopping antique and thrift stores and there were plenty to be found.

Continental breakfast was nothing to write home about -- standard store-bought pastries; cereal; (turkey?) sausage patties; biscuits & gravy; coffee & orange juice;hard-boiled eggs; waffles that you make yourself. Edible and worth it to save money, but nothing more.

A great place to stay on a budget.

We stayed only one night the first weekend in November. I had not been to the area for almost 24 years and I was somewhat overwhelmed by the growth in the area. What used to be a two lane highway(98) is now four lanes of a lot of traffic.The lobby area is nice,rooms were O.K. Do not expect a lot form the hotel.Internet service came and went. The young lady at the front desk(Jessica) was very nice,She was very helpful in answering any questions. You are just not going to find much in the area for less than 100$ /night.
