It was ok for my purpose which was work. I was not pleased about the fact that I had to wait an hour to be picked up from the airport, but otherwise, it was fine.

Whoa!What a deal!

Came into Fwb a day earlier than planned for a stay in a condo in destin. Wanted a cheap room and stayed here for one night. Wow, for ONLY $56 TOTAL after tax, this hotel was an amazing value!!! The outside isn't much, but the room was extremely nice,updated,clean and had everything you needed. Fridge, microwave, free WiFi, and free hot breakfast.bed was very comfortable too. It's in a fantastic spot, right ok okaloosa island with great views and directly across from the beach. Staff was nice. HIGHLY rec for those on a budget, I'd say even a much better deal and value than most chain hotels. Not scuzzy like most value hotels!!!

Don't let the outside fool you... It's a little gem

The building is plain and seems like a typical 2- or 3-star chain that might be yucky potentially, but the lobby is modern, comfortable, newer, and spacious. The rooms have also been updated with similar decor. There's a gorgeous beach across the street and another behind the hotel a short walk away. The front-desk people were all very friendly and seemed to take pride in the property. The pool is small but clean and a good temperature. Breakfast was included and scheduled from 6-10, and it was a decent spread a little beyond standard continental fare. We were on a family leisure trip, and the hotel's location was perfect for us. We had a rented car and drove no more than 10 minutes each way to get to entertainment districts and shopping. I would stay here again if I'm back in the area.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

If you have space and can remember, bring your own beach stuff. Towels, snorkels, toys, etc. We spend money on this stuff on a day that would have otherwise been cheap but amazing on the beach. :)

great place to stay

This is the second time that I have stayed at this hotel. IT is clean and near the beach. The staff is friendly and helpful. I am giving 4 stars because this time my room did not have a microwave oven only a mini fridge.

Excellent

This was an excellent and affordable place to stay that's near the beach. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5, is because the pool was extremely small. If you prefer the beach to a pool, the. This is a great place to stay. Lasso the had a wonderful hot breakfast buffett each morning. I would book here again.

Very nice

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Breakfast above average and wifi signal good. If you want to be on the beach this isn't the choice, since you need to load up to get across busy highway to public access. Overall great experience.
