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.

Nice Place, nothing fancy

nothing special...was passing through on the way to visit relatives. the place was fine, although the roadside location was noisy, and the other guests even more so.

Nice stay!

Hotel lobby was very nice and the rooms were comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful. Best part was the electronic directory in the lobby which detailed attractions, restaurants, bars, grocery stores, etc. that were in the area and convenient to the hotel. Will stay here again!

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Skip the continental breakfast (which was good) and eat instead at "Another Broken Egg" in Destin. Takes about 15 minutes to get there from the hotel, but the food was SUPERB!!! Well worth the drive.

Good beds

Good beds, but the bathrooms have paper thin walls. Commons area is not much to enjoy. Good place for a nights rest, but not much else.

Friendliest Staff on a 38 day trip

They checked us in early when we arrived ahead of schedule and switched us to a room with a gulf view when we asked if one was available. It was a bargain price as well. The front desk personnel were all very friendly and helpful. In the morning the gentleman at the desk even made waffles for all of the guests. He was so friendly it was like being guests in his own kitchen. The location was convenient to the beach and ammenities.

Unbeatable location for the price

When we first checked in we were given a smoking room. When we returned to the front desk and explained we needed a non smoking room they explained that thru Orbitz we were only garenteed a room, not necessarily a non smoking room. They did however make every effort to get us into a non smoking room even tho they were booked full for the weekend. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way for us and for others that I saw while we were there. The lady that took care of the breakfast even spoke multiple languages and tried to address people in their native language if she could in the mornings. I would definitely stay at this hotel again. We have family in Ft. Walton Beach, FL and we will be returning to visit them a few times a year.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

The hotel was right on the main road and everything you could want was just off this road. Some of the restaurants were even within walking distance.
