Across Street from Beach, Good Value

We slept at the Emerald Coast Inn and Suites and spent all remaining hours on the beach, in the stores, and at restaurants. The rooms are clean, the beds/pillows ensure a good night sleep, and the included breakfast fills the tummy.

A great experience

This hotel was very nice. The room was clean and ready when I arrived. I didn't see the staff much, but they did a great job cleaning the room. Around the hotel it's full of other hotels and tourist spots. The Gulfarium is just down the street which is a great family attraction. This hotel is centrally located so it's a quick drive to both Desin and Okaloosa. The view from my room was of highway 98 but beyond that it was the gulf. There is a pier just across the street that you can reach the beach from as well. The hotel was clean, well-kept, and in a great area. I would book here again in a heart beat.

Good place for the price

We stayed 4 days here as our "home base" as we explored the area attractions. It is well situated in the middle of everything and was easy to get to and from. The room was clean but average, The beds were comfortable. Really good breakfast came with the room and coffee pot & coffee available in the room. Both were much appreciated. Everyone were very friendly and helpful. Yes, we would stay here again.

Great Value!

Very pleasantly surprised with this hotel. Would highly recommend especially for families who like beach getaways with an eye on the budget. Large room - great internet reception - microwave and refrigerator. Located next to the Convention Center and within walking distance (just across a busy highway with crosswalks) of the pier, beach, gift shops with Publix a 5 minute drive away.

Awesome Hotel!!!!

After reading many reviews on this hotel, I was skeptical about staying here. But once we got there, the location was great, staff was very friendly, and the room was excellent! Only about a 3 minute drive to the public beach. Breakfast was fair, nothing special though. Many complaints I read were about the room, but ours couldn't of been any better! Definitely will be staying here again in the near future!

Great Stay

This is the second time staying at this hotel and I have to say its perfect for the price and location. The free breakfest was perfect and not to mention the distance to the public beach was walking distance. Dont expect a amazing view but expect a perfect location for being in the middle of everything fun there is to do in Ft. Walton/Destin, FL.
