Verified Reviews of Best Western Ft. Walton Beachfront

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Wedding Block"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I had a wedding block for my guests here and for the ones who did end up being able to stay, it was fine. The only issue that I had was that due to the coronavirus my wedding was canceled on Friday and instead of refunding a lot of people who were coming up on that day, they still charged them even though this was something completely out of our control.
