Positive Reviews

The staff are super friendly.

The hotel's employees get consistently high praise for making guests feel like family. The bartenders are chatty and entertaining, while the helpful beach attendants are great with kids. The housekeepers do a great job of keeping the place clean too.

It's conveniently located for a family vacation.

With the private beach just down the walkway and many restaurants and attractions nearby, the Best Western Ft Walton Beachfront is ideally situated for the whole family. Kids enjoy the Gulfarium and Big Kahuna's Water Park, while others might prefer a round of golf or a windsurfing or parasailing lesson.

You get some unexpected free extras.

If you're used to paying extra for beach chairs and umbrellas, you'll be pleasantly surprised to see the free facilities set up on the hotel beach and around the pool. Your children can enjoy free movies with popcorn, as well as games, coloring and other activities. Unlike many hotels, the complimentary breakfast includes a range of hot dishes.

Negative Reviews

You might find the décor a bit dated.

While many guests find the cheerful, tropical pastel-toned furnishings and paint work put them in vacation mode, some say it's a bit too 1990s for their tastes.

The lighting could be brighter.

Although reviewers were overwhelmingly pleased with the size and comfort of their rooms, some did remark that the light bulbs in both the room and the bathroom were a bit dim.

A sea view always costs more.

The rooms at the front of the property have balconies overlooking the beach, but these are priced higher than those without a sea view. Some repeat guests and members of Best Western's loyalty program reviewers were disappointed to find that they also had to pay extra to upgrade, even though plenty of rooms were available.
