Nice beach view here... But this motel was VERY run down and had some other major problems with our stay. I feel they are very dysfunctional here. Bartender charged my bar tab to someone else credit card and turned into a big deal. Will never return here.

Hotel's Favourite
My wife and I just returned from a wonderful stay at the Best Western. Check in was quick and easy. Thanks to the friendly staff at the front desk. We stayed on the 4th floor with a beach front room. The view was perfect. The room was nice and clean with a refrigerator and a microwave. The complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas was a big plus. One less thing u have to bring to the beach. I don’t remember his name put the man that does the set up everyday was great. We were able to tip him and he was very appreciative. Don at the pool bar was very interesting loved his stories. The hotel bar Swizzle Sticks was great, Big shout out to Mike the bartender very knowledgeable about drinks and he makes one of the best lemon drop martinis. The complimentary breakfast was good, hot food selections along with breads and cereal. Never had any problems finding a place to Park. We will definitely return next year.

Summer extends well into October here on Okaloosa Island. Our topnotch service and incredible location are the foundations of wonderful vacations. Thank you for sharing your late summer experience. Dan at the beach, Don at the Cabana Bar and Mike at the Swizzle Stick will be glad to know that they helped make your trip enjoyable. We look forward to welcoming you and your wife back on next year's return visit to the Destin-Fort Walton Beach area.

Everything was great. Hotel room was exceptionally clean. They had everything we needed. The beach was just a few steps away. Staff was nice and accommodating. NO problems with noise late night. Beds were very clean.

What a great location - close to everything. Staff was very friendly, nice and accommodating. We asked for the top floor when we checked in and they made it happen. The beds were comfortable and we had no issues with the internet. A huge plus is the hotel provides their guests with 2 beach chairs and one umbrella (already set up ready to go) so all you have to do is walk out to the beach and begin enjoying your vacation. There is a bar on the 1st floor that was packed every single night and featured live music. There is also a bar located poolside. About the only thing I can say needs improvement is the breakfast menu. Pretty bland and not a lot of variety - especially if you are staying there for a week like our family did. I would recommend planning a few breakfasts away from the hotel or bring food to eat in your room.

After hunting for good prices per stay during our vacation with friends we found Best Western to have the best bang for our buck. The Hotel itself is fine, just as well as the rooms though some things could be done for a better experience. The amenities offered were excellent such as the ocean side view, the pool and the pool side bar. This also includes the bar within the hotel itself. Breakfast is offered at good hours as well. Overall, our stay was great. Keep a look out for good deals and if BW comes up near the top of your list then feel free to book. We did and we had a lovely time.

Loved our stay here. The beach is right outside the hotel which is clean and staffed with super friendly people. Having a free chair/umbrella beach set up included was so convenient. Loved it!! Would definitely return and recommend.

Great location, friendly staff, clean and neat. I stayed in the king Jr suite, the view was amazing! Definitely recommend. This hotel is close to Okaloosa and Destin which gave us plenty of things to do.

The hotel was ok. The location for beach access was good. The hotel should be overhauled. The ceiling was bubbled in several places and the bed was uncomfortable. The table and chairs in the room were straight up ugly. So way overrated in previous reviews.

We stay here every time we are in the area for business projects. Great accommodations, friendly staff, funky little bar, and great ocean Gulf views. Very close to some great dining options too! It's a can't miss hotel.

Will definitely be back. The swizzle stick lounge was a fun. Live music every night! The views were amazing and the staff was friendly and helpful. Just a short drive to Destin. Definitely worth staying at
