  • Family with children
    10.0

    It was very close to the beach and so very comfortable...The pool was so clean and the beaches no nice. I loved that we didn't have to rent beach chairs and it was included. Staff was so nice.

    The only thing we would change is the breakfast area was very cramped. It was hard to get around, and they served the same thing every day.

  • Family with children

    Had a good breakfast and location. The building was a little bit old, but everything else was good.

  • Family with children
    9.0

    The beach of course! The staff were nice and the breakfest was good.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Love the location...the beach is beautiful.

    The breakfast bar was fair, but the way it was set up created a log jam of people that led us to leave to go to the Waffle House which left me feeling that I did not get my moneys worth. The eggs were awful.

  • Single

    The beach is fantastic. The hotel is exactly what it advertizes: the best price in Fort Walton.

    It is just a beach hotel, do not have too high expectations. Breakfast is modest.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    What I liked best about my stay at the Best Western Fort Walton Beachfront Hotel is that it's right on the beach! The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. I liked how they had a refridgerator and microwave in the room. The continental breakfast provided was very good. My family also loved the complementary beach umbrella and chairs that were available to us on the beach. An overall relaxing place to be! :)

  • Family with children
    6.6

    This hotel was convenient to restaurants, shops and entertainment as well as located within steps of the beach. The housekeeping staff was excellent and went above and beyond to meet our needs. Front desk personnel were polite. The breakfasts were nice, with hot and cold choices including waffles as well as a variety of juices and coffee and tea.

    We were told at check-in there would be beach-side service of drinks and snacks served at the complementary umbrellas/chairs at the beach every day with hotel staff coming by to take our order, but there was no service and the umbrella attendant didn't know what I was talking about when asked. For whatever reason a beach hotel has carpeted floors in the rooms is beyond me, but the carpet was understandably sticky and dirty.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    For this expensive location, it has the best value.

    This location (area) is extremely overpriced for the amenities, beach, etc. It is the best value for the area. I have paid less for hotels in Hawaii that are beautifully located and much nicer. I just don't feel like I got my money's worth.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Beachfront location was great, complimentary umbrella and chairs on the beach a big plus. Very friendly staff.

    Room felt a little worn, didn't feel real clean. Breakfast was very crowded and not set up very well.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Very courteous hotel staff. Nice continential breakfast! Very clean rooms and excellent prices to stay on the beach. Will definitely be staying here again!

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Beds were very comfortable, beach was beautiful, use of chairs and umbrella were included. That is usually an extra charge.

    The breakfast was free but wasn't very good.

  • Couple
    6.6

    Front desk staff very kind and professional, hotel lobbey and pool area attractive

    Bar tender at pool was rude as well as the singer at the poolside. Hotel was overpriced for the area

  • Family with children
    6.2

    The location on the beach was good. I guess it was a good value in comparison to the price of other beachfront hotels.

    The staff didn't make it real clear as to how to get the free beach umbrella and chairs. The continental breakfast food was good, but the layout is very unorganized. It is a very small space with little counter area so people are grouped together and waiting on one another to move in order to get their turn at breakfast.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The hotel was clean and it was a great value since it was right on the beach.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    We had a pleasant stay, the staff were accomodating, helpful and friedly. We will definitely stay at this hotel again.
