Property Description

Allow me to introduce you to our award winning Best Western, located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, on beautiful Okaloosa Island. Our “boutique style” hotel is just minutes from Destin, and within walking distance of many restaurants and souvenir shopping! Just minutes from the hotel shopping galore; downtown Ft. Walton Beach, Uptown Station, Santa Rosa Mall and in SanDestin Silver Sands Outlet and Destin Commons in Destin. This area was named "best beach and family destination" by Southern Living, for the eleventh year in a row! The Best Western has 99 spacious rooms located either gulf front, with a private balcony, or inland. All are furnished with one king or two queen size beds, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, high speed internet, HBO, iron/board, and hair dryer. Each morning we serve a complimentary deluxe continental breakfast. All guests enjoy our beachside heated pool and picnic area, seasonal Cabana Bar with Beach Butler and complimentary umbrella and 2 beach chairs! Be sure not to miss the Seafood, Billy Bowlegs, Musical Echoes, Mardi Gras, and Art Festivals, as well as the fishing tournaments and Emerald Coast Poker Run. There’s always something going on to entertain you! Our off-season is after Labor Day through March 1. This is a beautiful and economical time of year to visit. We welcome you to Okaloosa Island, where we have perfected the art of relaxation and southern hospitality.
