“Clean, Cheap and Friendly!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2010

We stayed here for 2 nights and had no problems. Our room was clean, the breakfast was good (waffles, biscuits/gravy, sausage, cereal, muffins, etc.), room was quiet and front desk staff was friendly and helpful. It is within walking distance to the beach, Boardwalk and the Gulfarium (all are pretty much across the street). It was the cheapest place we could find ($60+tax per night) and we were pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortable our room was. We will definitely be going back!!!

If i was stay in Fort Walton Beach again for vacation, I would prefer to stay on the beach. The hotel was very nice, friendly, and clean. I was just in town a couple days on business, so it wasn't worth opting for a beachfront hotel. Though, this hotel is fine. Breakfast- decent selection for a typical continental breakfast. Pool- small, clean, not crowded. Hot tub- indoors, clean. Rooms- clean, adequate, microwave & fridge in ALL rooms, obstructed gulf view in all rooms. Staff- very friendly, helpful.

Stayed at the Emerald Coast for 5 nights. The room was on the sixth floor and it was clean with plenty of space. The view from the 'deck' (a.k.a the sixth floor stair landing) was beautiful. You could see the gulf without any obstruction. It was within walking distance of the Broadwalk, beach and miniature golf. There were also several other restaurants and a grocrey store near by. Each morning breakfast was available with cereal, fresh fruit, toast, bagels, sausage gravy, biscuit, and fresh made to order waffles. I would definately stay here again.

Great party hotel! If you just want a good night sleep in a clean place, you'd be better off in your car. I left as soon as I pull the covers back. Internet didn't work either.

Stayed for 4 nights, had no problems. It was quiet as can be and the service was excellent. Breakfast is what you would expect for a hotel like this, but was fresh and adequate. We ate breakfast in the hotel everyday but one. Location was great, close to the beach, Boardwalk, Liquor store, Gas Station, Destin, and downtown Ft. Walton. Room was clean, smelled fresh, bed was comfortable, and everything you need is included ( Free Wi-Fi, Cable, Refrigerator, Hair Dryer, etc.) Room was plenty big enough ans A/C was COLD!! Will definitely return to this hotel on my next visit to Ft Walton.

Front desk staff very nice -- Rooms are clean , beds are very comfortale but bathroom tiles need to be replaced.

This is an OLD building - and it is really showing its age .. As with all older hotel/motels - the sound proofing was not a priority. So if you ae a light sleeper -- you might not want to stay here. Water pressure on the 5th floor was very weak.. I opted to not wash my hair for fear there was not enough pressure to get the shampoo out of my hair .

We could look out our window ( That does not open) andd see the beach across the street. Restaurants and "things to do" were near by.

We were up and gone beforethe "free breakfast" , so I cannot tell you about that

So all that being said , would we stay again-- yes , on a lower floor and with earplugs for a good nights sleep.

We were just passing thru and needed a place to sleep

I am shocked people wrote such positive reviews for this place. My room stunk so profusely of mildew, I could hardly breathe. Yeah, I paid $60.00 but it wasn't worth it. The food at breakfast was some nasty melted cheap snack cakes. Truly a dive. Stay away!
