“Asked to stay longer - it was that good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

When we arrived on Thursday we were exhausted and Heidi checked us in promptly and gave us the name of two nearby restaurants for supper. When we told her we might like to stay an extra night, she took our name for the waiting list. Luckily she called the next day and confirmed we could stay another night. She was super and helped us several times during our stay. The rooms are a bit worn, but clean and fine for us. The beach service is spectacular! Loved chilling on the beach on my chair and private umbrella that was provided by the hotel. We aren't "beach people", however, we are definitely coming back to this hotel and Ft Walton Beach. Loved It!

Room Tip: Get a balcony!

Stopped in with a coupon from travel booklets picked up at gas stations. They accepted it even though it wasn't to be used until March (which I didn't see because all I saw was ocean front, good price) and this was mid January! They were so accommodating and let us stay for the 4 nights we were in the area. It was beautiful, room very nice, workout room nice and the staff exceptional. The food and bloodmarys were yummy. I think everyone felt sorry for us Wisconsinites! Planning on going back next year.

Room Tip: We had ocean front with a balcony, two chairs and table on it. Perfect for the two of us and the vie...

Had the joy of staying at this hotel April 13, 2013 for one night. Upon arrival Damen was getting off his shift and Heather was coming on. Needless to say, both of these individuals demonstrated old fashion customer service... the type of service we just don't see that often anymore. Not only is customer a big factor, the hotel is well maintained and I just love the color schemes.

Thank you to Damen and Heather for making my stay the most enjoyable one I've had in a very long time. Keep Up the Good Work!

LOVED, LOVED our stay. We were attending the Doolittle Reunion and had so much fun with the wonderful staff. They added so much to our visit! Felt like we were staying with "family". The hotel reminds me of Alice in Wonderland:) Our room was comfortable and had a beautiful beach front view (thanks Toni). Everything felt clean and fresh. Again, the ENTIRE staff was a delight. Don't remember everyone's name but just wanted to give a shout out to all of you. By the way, Ellen, if you get the chance to read this, I wanted to tell you that we bought Stretch a hat at the luncheon. He "insisted" we take his (from his unit).....................hat exchange (Sam loved it!!!) Again, I would reccomend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a friendly, helpful staff and a very nice place to stay in Fort Walton Beach. Hey guys, did you see the front page of the paper.................couldn't help myself, got very emotional!!!! Sheila from Maryland

Room Tip: We were on the 4th floor, over the pool...................no problem!

My family and I really loved this hotel! We loved all that was included and the accommodations! The free beach chair and umbrella was great! The fact the front desk provides beach towels swim diapers and cribs blew us away! The entertainment was great! Definitely already planning our next weekend stay in may!

Clean rooms, quiet hotel, right on beach, friendly staff good value. Spent $119/night for 3 nights. Manager upgraded to ocean view for no extra charge. Probably because they were not that busy. I wish there was a hot tub, but the pool was heated and the kids liked playing ping pong. Nothing fancy but for a beach front property it was a great value. But don't go next spring because I don't want it to be busy...I want to get another great deal :) P.S. Search hotel promo codes on google. I ended up getting 15% off (thats why the room price was so low)

Stayed here 5 nights mid March and enjoyed every minute. We had a beachfront room on the fourth floor with a fantastic view. Even though this hotel is a little older, our room was very clean and it had a new mattress (very comfortable) and television. The staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as pleasurable as can be. All personal, including reception desk (especially Heather & Leah), continental breakfast attendants (sweet Aricka), bar staff, maids, and even Beach Butler Dan, were helpful, courteous and always cheerful. We truly appreciate all of your hospitality!!! During our stay we went on a full day fishing trip with "One Shot Charters". We were extremely pleased with Captain Adam Peeples, who is professional, polite and knows where the fish are. We caught tons of fish!!!! Here is his website and phone # for anyone wanting to have a fun & successful time fishing in the Ft. Walton Beach area www.oneshotcharters.com (1-850-585-9436).
Thanks Again, BW Ft. Walton Beachfront Staff, for making part of our anniversary vacation a memorable one, we look forward to returning.
