Wonderful hotel with outstanding staff

Posted Apr 14, 2014
Pros: beach front location, balcony, decor, staff
Cons: The elevator was super slow, but this was a very minor annoyance.
Location: The hotel is on Okaloosa Island, which is in old Fort Walton. There was a large dining and entertainment center nearby, and the Gulfarium.
My husband and I, along with another couple, spent one night at this great beach-front hotel. I wish it could have been a week! When we arrived around 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, the front desk staff greeted us warmly and we were able to go ahead and check in. There was enough room availability that I was able to choose which floor to stay on, and I was booked on the highest floor. Our room had two queen beds and a balcony overlooking the pool and the beach. The decor was up-to-date and fresh. There was a mini fridge and microwave in the room, and a single-cup coffee maker. The balcony had two small chairs and a table. Everything was clean. The hotel itself is decorated in a "South Beach" Miami style, with pastel colors and art-deco design. It was really fun. There is an outdoor "Tiki bar" and there was a guy playing guitar poolside. There also is a colorful "Swizzle Stick Bar" inside that opens in the evenings with live music. The use of two beach chairs and two umbrellas was included in the price of our room, which is a HUGE perk! This can really add up if you are staying several days. There was another clerk on duty in the afternoon who provided us with suggestions for dinner and brunch the next day. We went to Pandora's steak house for dinner, which was outstanding, and Angler's for Sunday brunch - they open at 10:30. Again, great food and service there. Good recommendations. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Loved the retro look

Posted Apr 6, 2014
We stayed at this hotel for one night. Upon arrival, the front desk staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The lobby was very clean and so colourful. The pool was warm and clean. It was really nice to have the bar outside by the pool and the bartender made great drinks. We loved the live music as well! Thanks for a great comfortable stay!

Loud area

We had a room on the second floor, right above the bar on the weekend. Impossible to get quiet time to sleep until after midnight. Not an ideal family hotel room.

Wonderful hotel on the beach.

Posted Jan 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
Our stay was fantastic! We saw dolphins from our balcony. Both mornings there was a pod of dolphins playing in the water in front of our room. Can't beat being on the beach with a beach view for a great price. The room was very clean & the beds were comfortable. Free breakfast was good. The heated pool was heated to perfect temperature for our December stay.
