Great place to stop- many restaurants nearby. The Hotel is always clean and the bed are comfortable. The breakfast had a nice variety. The pool is clean. The only issue is that we had some pretty slow wifi.

I stayed overnight on a business trip. The room had recently been remodeled and was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and there are plenty of restaurants close by. I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in the area.

We needed a break on a long road trip and decided to stay here based off the reviews. I was a bit skeptical as it didn't have that much outside appeal (looked old and was the old-style motel), but we had an infant and dog so were desperate. Previously we had stayed at a LaQuinta and it was a HORRIBLE...

We are rewards members and did know that Best Western is improving all of their properties so when searching for a place to stop on our way back we decided to stay here.

Our room was really clean and nice. Beds were really comfy and pillows were awesome! It was a pretty quite night even though the hotel was booked , we didn't hear anything. I would stay there again.

A truly humiliating experience-- I am a loyal platium status member I have stayed at this property 5 or 6 times in the past.

I always show my dogs picture...

After a six day, five night trip to the Fort Walton Beach area, we had our best experience with a hotel, here. Terrific staff and the rooms and amenities were well above the balance of the trip. Two thumbs up!

Stayed here last week. You guys saved our trip. We had checked into another hotel over in Decatur only to be so disgusted by the condition of the room and property (and scam artist calling the room) that we requested a refund and left (I'd never had to do that before, so believe me when I say it was horrendous)....

My family and I stayed at this Best Western on our drive from Ohio to Florida. There are many hotels in this area and from the outside of the building- it looked a little old and not as nice as the others in the area. However, all the rooms have recently been updated and it was very clean. My kids...
