“Wonderful family destination”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2014

My family stayed at this hotel for 3 days in early August. It was a wonderful vacation. This hotel has the friendliest staff! Everyone we came in contact with was so nice and helpful.

Pros
- Very friendly staff
- Free, filling, breakfast every morning
- The beach was easy to get to, safe and clean.
- Rooms are bright and cheery. They are clean and a refrigerator and microwave are provided.

Cons
- There is not a lot to do right around the hotel. We found ourselves driving to Destin almost every day for dinner and activities.
- The beach towels supplied by the hotel are not that great, I would suggest bringing your own.
- The pool is way too hot, it’s not refreshing at all.

I would definitely recommend reserving a beach-facing room. I didn't, but was able to get a free upgrade because they weren't too busy. The rooms are a little small and it made such a difference to be able to open the door and let in some fresh air now and then. It was also a great place to dry our swimsuits.

Room Tip: Get an ocean-facing room

I am from FWB but when we got to visit family, we always stay on the beach. We stayed at the Ramada for many years, but their rooms are getting old and tired looking. We decided to try the Best Western and we were delighted. We had a beachfront room on the fifth floor. The room was CLEAN and furnished well. Internet worked well and they gave us passes to the local Gold's Gym! There isn't a restaurant on site, but they do serve a nice breakfast. Gabriella and Chloe (at the front desk) were awesome...the rest of the staff were great too. We will definitely book our next trip there and we're already looking forward to it. P.S. The beds were very comfortable...better than most hotels we've been in.

Room Tip: Stay a few floors off the beach for a little less noise.

Good hotel for a great price. Much cheaper than several other hotels in the area considering they include beach service of two chairs and one umbrella per room. Everyone was very friendly and it was a convenient location to drive into Destin, Fort Walton, or Pensacola.

Room Tip: Beachfront views cost extra, but might be worth it just to have somewhere to dry towels out and enjo...

had a great stay room was clean and had a view of the ocean, the only thing I didn't like about it was the price they Quote me a price of a 178.00 per nite and when I went to check out it was 222.00 a nite and when I ask them why they said it was a beach front room and when I told them that when I made the reservation they said a beach front was 178.00 per nite......

We picked up a Hotels.com coupon booklet on our way into Florida and got this hotel for $90.00. It was excellent. 2 queens and a sofa was exactly what we needed. The staff was always very friendly, rooms were cleaned well. Just wish we could have stayed longer.
