“Quiet, clean, great location, excellent staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

Enjoyed my stay at the Best Western, Ft Walton Beach. Bed was firm and comfortable. Shower had plenty of pressure. Large flat screen TV was nice, plenty of channels. The room was clean. The front desk staff was very attentive and helpful. The location is right on the beach, the back door opens onto a boardwalk and white sandy beaches.

I really enjoyed my 3-night stay there; wish it could have been a couple of nights longer.

Room Tip: Go ahead and pay the extra for a beachfront room, 4th floor or above.

My girlfriend and I decided to escape NOLA for a few days. Best Western gave us a fantastic deal on a Junior Suite Ocean View. Everything was amazing and we loved the stay at the hotel. The breakfast was great, the tiki-bar bartender was awesome, and the front desk people were exceptionally welcoming. We will definitely be back.

I just recently stayed in April for Easter. The hotel sits on a beach and the view is GREAT. Friendly, clean and very nice hotel. The room was clean and nice. The service for checking in great. The had a movie night for the kids every night at 6 30. They also had a happy hour at night and the bar was located outside next to the pool. Awesome hotel

We just completed a three-week tour that led us from Atlanta, Tallahassee, Fort Walton Beach, New Orleans, Darrow/Baton Rouge, Natchez, Little Rock, Memphis, Nashville back to Atlanta. We stayed here for two nights. The location is simply perfect - you walk out of the hotel and you arrive at one of the world's most beautiful beaches. The staff at the front desk is extremely friendly and helpful, exactly how customer service should be. The room was spacious, clean and we were very happy with it. All dinner options are available within a 20-minute drive. Just two things that could be improved:
a) Breakfast: There should be more tables and chairs, and the massive use of plastic should be decreased. Furthermore, the sound volume of the TV should be reduced.
b) We asked for a room with a view of the beach. We were told that the hotel is fully booked. However, counting the cars during both nights and looking at the empty balconies throughout both days we do not believe that.

Thank You for your review. We appreciate your kind remarks. Our apologies on the breakfast seating. We do have additional seating available. It would have been our absolute pleasure to have been able to put you in a beachfront room. We are remodeling and unfortunately we still had rooms that were having new carpet put in them. On your next visit we will be sure to assist you with a beachfront room reservation!

Kim, at the front desk, was cheerful and professional. It was our first visit to the area and she was able to upgrade us to a gulf view room which made our visit more enjoyable. The staff was very helpful with directions and local questions. The hotel is older but clean and in a great location. Beach access was close and easy. The complimentary chairs set up on the beach for the guests were a plus. The pool was warm and inviting. The music at the pool was an acceptable volume. The decor of the rooms was pleasant, beachy and comfortable. There was a tiki bar at the pool that stayed busy but was never loud or disorderly, it always had a relaxed atmosphere. And there was always complimentary popcorn. We will definitely choose the Best Western if we return to Ft. Walton Beach. Great visit!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the gulf cannot be beat!

I just checked in for one to stay for a work trip, and I can tell you I would stay here in a heart beat! Chloe and Kim were sooooo fabulous at the front desk. They were so warm and friendly and provided exceptional service!!! I originally had a room that faced inland and Chloe was nice enough (since I was staying for only one night)with to provide me a room that faced the beach to help me relax before work! I travel a lot for business and I have never had such warm, and friendly service. The room was clean and nice as well!

Room Tip: Rooms with a beach view really make it seem more like a resort

We had a lovely stay here and I have to mention Sue, Michelle and Paula at the front desk, who went out of their way to be helpful, friendly and welcoming. The first impressions of a hotel are extremely important and these staff members excelled. The rooms were clean, the beds really comfortable and the balcony was the outstanding feature. The hotel is right on the water and we spent hours watching the boats, sunset and sunrise from our balcony on the 6th floor. There is a coffee maker in each room and a microwave and refrigerator. The pool is large and heated - something I always look for when booking. The Ihop next door has a special breakfast for about $6.50 for hotel guests. The hotel is only 5 minutes away from the Edison and Ford estates, another big plus. It isn't the Ritz, but it is excellent value and we would definitely stay again (and I
