Fourth time we have stayed at this hotel. Staff is always friendly, rooms are clean, and there are never any surprises. Right on the beach, and easy access to shopping and dining. We enjoy the on-site bar.

ft. walton beach trip

There was a palmetto bug in our room. We were going to check out but because our reservation was through O travel site it was a hassle. They moved us to another room. We also had an issue with our car- it was very small for a sedan and had transmission issues. I did report this to the rental car.

A great, reasonable beach hotel

Had a very good experience at this hotel. Having been bumped off of a flight after a stay at a nearby resort property, this hotel offered a pleasant, low-key contrast to the resort experience--which feels kind of like a concentration camp for tourists. The prices are quite reasonable, the rooms clean, pleasant, and comfortable, and the staff are first rate -- friendly and helpful in the extreme. If you want a place to stay along the white beaches and emerald waters of the gulf coast -- without breaking the bank and without staying with hundreds of corporate conference attendees in a tourist gulag -- I highly recommend it.

Great hotel right on the beach

The room was comfortable and clean. The best part was that it was right on the beach and it came with 2 beach chairs and an umbrella that was already set up for you each day. The breakfast was OK, but not great. It was a continental breakfast along with a waffle maker and luke warm eggs with sausage or bacon, but better than having to go out for breakfast. We would stay here again since the location was great.

Great Location. Hotel could use a few updates.

Location was great. Sea grass (seaweed) was horrible. Everyone in the area said this year was the worst they have ever seen. Breakfast was nice and beach staff was great. Nice to have chairs and an umbrella set up and ready to use at no additional charge. Room could use updates, carpet was dirty and knobs on drawers were loose. Staff was friendly and just a short drive to most everything.

was good at one time.

Shower dripped non-stop. Refrigerator was so loud had to have them bring a new one. And we didn't even use the refrigerator. But beach service was great. Bar was great. Rooms just need updates.
