“Cleanliness”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Spent 2 nights in this hotel with family - the plan was 10nights. The Lobby is lovely and so inviting with waterfall. However the room I had was small and very dirty. Old sweets on floor and stuck on bedding. My grandson was showered and sat in floor to play with his car and his clothes got black. Everything felt dirty and damp. You had to keep your shoes on. Lamp shades were not matching. There was no sheer over window so had to keep curtains closed for privacy as it was one thoroughfare to pool, which then kept it dark and miserable. Toiletries were limited. Toilet area was very small, there was nowhere to dress, there was no wardrobe just a rail by sink area. Nowhere to store luggage. Breakfast was limited choice and disgusting. The AC unit was very noisy which effected sleep. The waterfall bar looked impressive but lots of adults standing drinking in pool, there was no toilet close by which made it obvious they were using the pool. Tiki bar did do nice char grilled burger, however seating area was not clean and tables were not wiped after use. The only positive would be the location which is by the beach and boardwalk. Having stayed in several hotels in the states and particularly Florida - I was shocked at the condition and standard of cleanliness.

Room Tip: If you are not fussy on cleanliness and comfort - this is good locations for beach, Destin, Fort Wal...

We stayed there with our two small children and had a wonderful experience! The splash park and night time pool movie was the favorite of my daughter while my son loved being right on the beach. We had a beach front hotel and I was so glad we paid the little extra money for that view. The hotel is expensive but to me you are paying for the direct beach access. The rooms were a little on the small side but we weren't in our rooms for very long so that wasn't an issue. The breakfast at the hotel was very good and I loved that they didn't charge full price for the kids! We will def stay there again next time in Fort Walton area!

Room Tip: Get a beach front hotel!

This place had so many convenient amenities to it. We have 2 kiddos the pool and splash pad were perfect. Super easy access to the beach. We had a pool view room which had a beautiful view of the hotel grounds, pool, and bay across the road. Other reviews noted the rooms were old and small which they sort of are HOWEVER it was clean and we didn't come to hangout in our room anyway! Thanks for our enjoyable stay. Bbq hut was nice to have for lunch and there is a mini Alvins Island store on the grounds which was nice. Only thing we didn't like was the breakfast at their Garden Cafe. Bar on beach and in the pool were nice additions for my husband and I. Easy access to Destin just 5-6 minutes over the bridge.

Room Tip: Pool side view just as great as good as looking at the ocean.

I read a lot of negative reviews about this hotel but decided to book it anyway because of the great rate. I am glad I did. Yes the lobby looks like it was last remodeled in 1989. The rooms are not much better. But I did not go to Ft Walton to hang out in my room and watch TV. The hotel has great pools. We have a 2 year old and they have a kiddie pool and a splash area just for kids. The beach is directly in front of the hotel. We hardly ever had to use our car. We were able to walk to the Gulfarium, boardwalk, and Fuddpuckers. We did drive to the Destin harbor. It only takes about 10 minutes with light traffic. if you want an awesome room, then spend the extra 2k and book the Hilton in Destin. If you want and awesome beach experience for a cheap price then book this hotel. I don't know if the food is good at the hotel because we ate at the boardwalk everyday. The hotel also has it own Alvins Island. Don't spend the $30 to rent a beach chair for a day, just buy a $9 chair a Alvins Island. I also arrived almost an hour early and they still let me check in. There was seaweed when I was there, but it was also in Destin. We go to Destin every year and it is hit and miss on how clear the water will be.

Room Tip: We had a view of the pool. Make sure you do not get a view of the parking lot.

Don't plan on an early check in!!
Ocean was gross, covered in June grass/seaweed. Room service/nice. Pizza/greasy. Yes needs updated but not horrible. Air conditioners are loud, but I didn't mind it. BBQ is great! Beds comfy! Bathroom small. No one really hangs out in the rooms anyway right? If the seaweed is an issue, ( was for me) head across the street just past the thumb gas station. Public beach, not busy, no waves but can walk for several hundred yards on sand bars. Would stay here again, maybe not in June due to the sea grass.

Thanks for telling us about your visit. I'm glad that you found the calm, protected water in Choctahatchee Bay across the street when the Gulf had June grass. Mother nature is unpredictable, but late summer seems to be a safer bet for clear water conditions. Can't wait to see you next time!
