“Very Pleased with the Holiday Inn Sunspree Resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2008

My husband and I stayed three nights in a gulf front king standard room and were very pleased. The room was clean and nice with a microwave and small refrigerator. The 4th floor room had a great straight on view of the gulf beach and pool area. Looking left and right down the beach was somewhat limited but I was not disapointed at all with our view. The pool and grounds area were kept clean and neat as a pin. Mattress was perfect. We always take our own pillows, but we really didn't need them this trip. If you're not satisfied with the pillows in the room you can order different ones. We normally go for a condo but since it was only the two of us and were only staying 3 nights we decided on a standard room. For a longer stay or a larger party I would opt for one of thier suites with the full kitchen and seperate bedroom. Even with being accustomed to staying in a condo my husband and I were happy with this room.

Very nice and clean hotel. The website as always does make it out to be a little better then it actually is. Overall it was pretty clean and well maintained. My only gripes are that the internet kept cutting out for days at a time and also that the maid service chicks are beating on your door at 9 am. The beach was great to take our kids to and the hotel provides free umbrellas and chairs. There is also a pretty nice restaurant and bar inside the hotel.

An older hotel renovating as they can. Probably hit and miss with the rooms. Nice , convenient restaurant. The two pools and hot tub are large enough to accommodate many guests without feeling crouded. I imagine most people are there for the beach which is very clear and warm.

Stayed in the Penthouse becasue it has two seperate bedrooms, everything was great but it does have a roach problem and the pool closes too early. Everything else was great, beach is awesome, great access, food at grill was good, roomservice was prompt. This hotel is located alomost directly in the middle of this island, there are many other hotels to chose from.

We chose this hotel because Fort Walton is a little closer to where my Dad lives and was the cheapest rate we could find ($199/night). Hotel cleanliness, okay. I was sick within a few days there. Who knows if it was the room or something else. Also saw a roach in bathroom on our 3rd day there. Our kids did love the pool and the beach area was great -- clean, free chairs & umbrellas, $20 kayaking, and sand volleyball! Staff was friendly and helpful at front desk and restaurant, although the restaurant staff needed more help. Staff at pool bar were very unfriendly and seemed as though someone had a gun to their heads forcing them to do their job. Maid service woke us up 2 out of our 4 mornings!

If you have never vacationed in this area, I'd recommend staying in Destin. Beaches & water are MUCH prettier and the Holiday Inn there is very comparable rate-wise. Or, if you have a family or two, rent a condo; much cheaper! We've taken our vacations in Ft. Walton / Destin for about 8 years and will continue to come back! Overall, we weren't there for the accommodations - we had a great experience!
