Best Western Ft. Walton Beachfront

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel was on a beautiful beach close to restaurants and entertainment. Highly recommend!!

Overall it was good but the decorating in the lobby and bar area is very poor and dated. The room décor was fine but the whole place looks like it is deteriorating. Maybe they are in the process of remodeling. If they are, that's a good thing.

This hotel is Awesome. Right on the beach & very nice, clean room. Breakfast was excellent. We will be back again.

We felt welcome the minute we walked in the door. Enjoyed the hot breakfast every morning and The view of the beach was fantastic ! Room was clean and comfy and the staff are great.We are already planning to stay here again when we get the chance.

I was presently surprised to find this little jewel among all the hotels available in this area.

Excellent and welcoming staff. Even when a minor issue occured at 11 PM, the night manager went out of his way to help resolve the issue. When the parking lot was full due to people who were not guests parking in the lot, the staff made every effort to find a place for us to park. The morning breakfasts were always fully supplied, right up until the closing time. There was never a shortage. In addition, we appreciated that there was ice cold water supplied in the lobby at all times.

We loved this hotel! You can't get much better than the beach access with complimentary chairs and umbrella and the free breakfast was amazing. The hotel staff went above and beyond. Can't wait to book our next trip!

We recommend this place ,exactly view to the beach,my wife and I enjoyed this place very quiet,the front desk very friendly, hot breakfast we recommend when you visit this place booking your room question that this front view to beach....we return again.. Noelia and Felix Monreal, from texas...

Friendly staff, weather was horrible, but it's not their fault! Beds were so comfortable and their pillows, well let's just say I wanted to take them home! The swizzlestick bartenders make awesome drinks!

This is a peaceful getaway with all the services you need for a good price. The beach chairs are complimentary, the breakfast is good and hot, with cheerful people around, and it is a full service accommodation all year.

We were in town for a wedding and wanted privacy away from in-laws. Staff was welcoming and offered upgrade upon arrival. Breakfast was typical continental but fresh. Fruit infused water was a highlight. Beach view is phenomenal.

Hotel location was great,just a short walk to a wonderful beach,Dan was awesome with the beach chairs and umbrella.The whole staff was great and very friendly.It was hard to leave the beautiful beach each day.The very best continental breakfast I ever had.

We had a wonderful time. Hotel was clean, the staff was friendly, and the view from our room was exquisite. Highly recommend this hotel

L8ved the atmosphere and the staff. Really enjoyed the Swizzle Stick bar. The peiple made our stay well worth it.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This has great location and close to beach. Very nice place and will recommend
