“Vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We had a great time and the staff was very helpful. They told us of a place to go to snorkel and a couple of places to eat in Destin that were not fish places. We stayed here last year but for some reason, it was just better this time around.

This was my family's first time in the Ft. Walton Beach area and we just loved our stay at the Best Western. The hotel was great, the room was clean, beds great and the view from our room spectacular. Our boys loved being able to hop from the pool and just run down to the beach and jump in the waves. The hotel staff were wonderful, and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was great, and the popcorn by the pool a wonderful treat. I have to say that this was one of our best vacations so far. We definitely plan to return next year. You guys are doing a great job!!!

Room Tip: I would choose a beachfront room. It is definitely worth the extra money. The view is spectacular...

This is our 3rd time in a year to stay at this hotel. We keep coming back because we LOVE it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It has a perfect location on the beach. Close to everything we love at FWB. I can not say enough great things about this hotel. ITS THE ONLY PLACE FOR US.

We arrived an hour early and were quickly checked in, The staff was excellent. The rooms were clean,beds were comfy. My daughter loved the pool. They provide swim diapers and towels! Breakfast was great. My husband and I enjoyed a drink out on the patio and listened to the waves roll in. The elevator is a little slow and there needs to be another washing machine dryer added. Other than that no complaints.

What a refreshing change of venue! We were reminded of the "true" Florida hotels of days gone by when we walked into the bright, cheery lobby. This hotel was decorated in true Florida fashion with gorgeous wall colors and a beautiful glass collection displayed in the lobby. Adrianna, Gabriella, and Tobi at the front desk were so friendly and helpful upon check in. We were too early for our room, but, they held our luggage for us and encouraged us to take advantage of the beach and pool while we waited. The beach was FABULOUS! The beach service attendant, Dan, helped us with 2 complimentary chairs and umbrella. The bar was good, although a bit pricey. We had a most relaxing afternoon while our room was being cleaned….and it was very clean! The room was a bit crowded with 2 queen beds, a small table, chairs, desk and chair, fridge and microwave, but, very clean. This is an older hotel that has been refurbished, so there were some issues with doors sticking, some rust on hinges, etc…but..it was well kept, clean, and actually really quiet. Breakfast was nothing special, but, Nu Nu kept everything replenished and the coffee was excellent. We also enjoyed the fruity water that was complimentary in the lobby. The housekeeping staff were excellent and brought us fresh towels each day. I would definitely recommend this hotel with its great staff of people to anyone.

Just got back from here yesterday! I had a great stay and I really recommend you stay here. At the hotel you get a Continental Breakfast, there is a popcorn machine at the bar and you can get popcorn whenever you want, and it is right on the beach. That is probably the best part. Some of the hotels in the area you have to walk a while to get to the beach but this hotel is right on the beach. The hotel has a small but nice pool in case you get tired of the beach. There is a bar right next to the pool but some of the prices are a little steep. So if you want to stay in the Destin area stay here!

Very clean, on the water, good free breakfast. Made for fond memories with my three young boys.. The bedding was comfy. It is close to stores and has a fridge and microwave. It was on a pretty stretch of the beach

Room Tip: Family, weekend, waterfront, cozy
