Good 7.4 From 1,638 reviews

Very Good 8.0
The place was clean and the people were nice. Location on the beach was great and the pools were fun. I thought it was reasonably priced.

Fair 4.0
ITS A Rundown MOTEL
Well just know that you will more than likely not have a beach view as the photos show. These are just motels with a pool in the middle. I paid too much a night for the lights to barely work and the room to smell like mildew. And bed smelled awful too and slept fully clothed to avoid my skin touching the filth. There is NO Parkong after like 8PM so I had to park next door to the motels.

Nice hotel but not enough staff.
Brandy, us1 night family trip
Exceptional 10.0
On the beach, clean, updated, would stay again
In reading past reviews, we worried that the rooms wouldn't be updated. We got a fully renovated room, so that was great. The bed was too soft for our liking, but the place was clean and the location was great. We didn't want to be in the jammed-up Destin area, so Fort Walton Beach was perfect. This hotel is tasteful in decor, their staff are pleasant, and we would stay here again. For us, this hotel was a good overall value.

Poor 2.0
Never again
I wish we had stayed anywhere but here. It’s extremely dated and falling apart despite what pictures depict. Only the outside areas are updated. The AC in the room did not cool for the entire 4 days and the staff couldn’t care less. There was no fan or vent in the bathroom so it stays hot and humid in there and air can’t move in or out. There was no elevator, just exterior stairs. They have no microwaves period. There was not one in the room and my daughter asked the front desk if they had one she could use and they told her no, that it was “illegal” for them to let her use one. Seriously??? Good grief, they have no clue. She said what if we had an infant and needed to heat a bottle and the woman said maybe stay somewhere else. Wow. The beach is pretty, but it is just as nice at every single other place to stay there. We will never be back, even if it were free.
