Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We were pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and you were able to experience our amenities here at WaterColor Resort. We look forward to your next stay!
A quick weekend getaway was cut short by a voluntary evacuation after two nights, but it was a wonderful stay at Watercolor Inn. The staff is great, accommodations even better, and the beach was exceptional.
Thank you for the great review, pointing out some of the best things guests enjoy at the WaterColor Inn. We hope on your next trip, you will have more than two nights to enjoy the amenities, such as our fine dining options, available at our resort. Again, thank you for taking to time to share your recent experience at WaterColor.
Wonderful place to stay. The facilities and amenities are top notch. Every staff member we met was friendly, professional and always helpful. We had a minor problem with where to park a small motorcycle trailer. The front desk and bellman quickly resolved the problem with no problem. Great to see staff at this level able to resolve minor problems and make decisions on the spot!
Hope to get a chance to return.
Thank you for the wonderful review. We are happy to hear that our staff were able to quickly resolve your parking issue. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
i spent one night at the hotel, arriving in a rain storm at 5PM. The room was great, The beach and view would have been spectacular if not for the rain. Walked to Seaside for a fantastic meal and found warm cookies on my bed. The bed and shower were very comfortable. I checked out at 7AM to catch my flight and was astounded to see a $25 "activity fee" added to my bill. I was told that this covered the use of the fitness center (which closed at 4PM and didn't open again until 8AM), the pools (again there was a storm) and other resort activities. I reminded them that I was NOT able to use any such activities - but they wouldn't budge. As I was spending several hundred dollars on the room already, this should have been included. Top notch hotels shouldn't "nickel-and-dime" their patrons. I subsequently wrote an email to the hotel manager and never received a response! Beautiful resort - VERY BAD POLICY!!!
We are sorry to hear of the issues you had with the weather and amenities during your short stay. In the winter months and times of inclement weather, the hours of our various outlets and access to our amenities may be limited. While our room rates may be more than most of the hotels in the area, we feel the amenities and location offered here are worth it. As far as the resort fee accessed, this is a standard practice at many resorts. Please accept our apologies - management does endeavor to respond to our guests in a timely manner.
Thank you for taking the time to post your comments.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience with this hotel for our anniversary trip. Everything from the staff, pools, beach, and food exceeded our expectations. All activities, such as the lake kayaking, fishing, and restaurants, including shopping at Seaside are all withing walking distance or a nice scenic bike ride. We are definetly planning on coming back with the kids. I've been to many beaches around the country; this is probably one of the best.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review and telling everyone that this is a “Beautiful Beach Resort” – we happen to agree! We look forward to your return.
Fantastic hotel right on the Gulf of Mexico, walking distance to Seaside and includes all of the amenities of Watercolor including Fish Out of Water, a fine dining restaurant with a great seafood menu. Views of Sunset are gorgeous. Beaches are beautiful and quiet for the most part. You have a private hotel for the guests of the Inn. Nice lounge, breakfast area, and staff.
We were pleased to see your review letting people know about our romantic options available at the Inn. We agree that our Four Diamond rated restaurant and proximity to the beach makes our resort a great romantic getaway in Northwest Florida. Again, thank you for your review and we look forward to your next stay!
