Wyndham Garden Fort Walton Beach - Destin FL
Ranked #5 of 30 Hotels in Fort Walton Beach
Reviewed 24 July 2017

We were there for our 35th anniversary. The first room we had was pretty disappointing. Too many things not quite right about it for what we paid. We stayed one night and I asked the manager if we could get a different room since the first room (in bldg C) was not what we thought we were getting. She was very gracious and understanding and she moved us up to the 7th floor and the room was beyond what we had hoped! That was worth the money we paid. The staff at the desk was very friendly and helpful. They manager, Lori, went above and beyond to make our stay a happy and memorable one. Gina, was the one that suggested this new room. We left a very happy customer. The pool was awesome and at night they show movies on a huge outdoor screen by the pool. You can see it from some of the rooms. too. I would just as to see photos of the room you are booking to make sure you're happy with what you're getting. All in all it was a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: our first room was in Bldg C and we weren't happy but we got moved to a better room

PROS: A great spot directly next to the beach and super close (within minutes) to most (if not all) of the area's main tourist attractions (the aquarium, boardwalk, parks, etc.), along with the strip where all the stores and restaurants are set up. The hotel, along with a dozen others, are on a strip of island, so no loud noises in the mornings or at nights. Peace and quiet, and the beaches are as "private" as you can get, and though we were there on the weekend in July, plenty of spaces and then some.

Location, location, and location was why we chose this place, and glad we did. Check-in/check-out was super easy and housekeeping was super accommodating with towels, etc. There's an arcade for kids next to the gym, and the pools were a hit. Free DVDs and bike rentals, and the TV had HBO. Vending machines didn't always work, but eh, they have a restaurant in the lobby that had great service and a mini-store next to it where you can buy drinks. The ground staff were all pleasant and said "Hi" whenever you passed.

Great time here if you're not a new traveler who needs your hands held for everything. We wanted to do our thing and hot have to drive more than 30 minutes to do them, and that's what we got.

CONS: The place can feel a bit dated, especially the suites. Carpeting was a little tired, but the standard rooms were pretty clean. Elevators take forever, but then, they usually do everywhere, don't they? A great excuse to use the stairs. :)

OVERALL: Good value for the location and atmosphere, with everything we wanted to do a short drive away.

We had a great stay at this hotel. The staff was amazing, the room was very clean and the view of the beach was breath taking. Only had on small issue and it was due to the weather. I want to thank Valarie, Mandi and Gustav were outstanding in the front desk. And our house keeper Wendy did a splendid job in the room. My kids loved the free movie rentals. #noregrets

My place was not ready on time. We had roaches in the room and one was on my headboard when I woke up. I did complain to desk and they sent someone to spray. The cable was not working the first night but they fixed it. They did not offer anything for the uncomfortable stay and I will never stay there again.

When we arrived we reserved a deluxe king room and got a standard king. They said they could change our room,but gave us a rollaway bed. On top of that, there were roaches in our room and it had a musty smell too it. The staff was friendly. We just wasn't satisfied with the room at all. It was definitely not worth the price.
