We picked Fort Walton because it's more family oriented than PCB. We loved our room and the stylish way the hotel was fashioned in bright colors. It reminds me of the Keys. Everything in our room worked perfectly. Check in and out were easy. The staff in the lobby were all great. I love that they had a movie for...

Our family of four stayed here for one night and that was enough for us. We had an oceanfront room with two queen beds and the room was unbearably small. Literally no room to move around whatsoever. Room was dirty and showed signs of wear and tear everywhere. No hot water in the shower. The AC wall unit leaked all...

We loved our stay here! Everyone from Steve at the front desk, Don at the Tiki bar, Danielle in the Switzel Stick, Alex the engineer to Jerry our cab driver was so nice and helpful. The hotel was clean, comfortable and decorated in a fun South Beach theme that really brought home the beachy vibe. Beds and pillows were comfy...

It had been over a year since our last vacation. The hotel we used to book had no vacancies. We have stayed in Best Westerns before so we decided to try the one in Fort Walton Beach. So glad we did! Everyone there was extremely friendly and the property was neat and clean inside as it was outside. We will...

When we pulled up, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I soon learned that exterior was deceiving. We stayed in an ocean front room with a balcony. Very comfortable! Clean, astetically pleasing, good colors with comfortable beds. Yes, the curtians could be updated, but how long are in the room anyway? It had wifi, and breakfast. Take your own...

Every staff member made this a truly relaxing & fun visit. Decor was cute "South Beach" inspired. Rooms were clean, beds comfy. Don the tiki bartender was nice & introduced us to Jerry the taxi driver. Good music in the Swizzle Stick lounge. Definitely would stay here again!
