Verified Reviews of Best Western Ft. Walton Beachfront Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great view, small pool, room cooler, breakfast okay, staff wonderful."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The view was beautiful. The chairs and towels were provided, which was a major plus! Check-in was late and check-out too early. Room was clean and spacious, but the air could have been cooler. Ice machines were only on even floors. It would be nice to have had one on our 5th floor. The breakfast was free, but the eggs, sausage and waffles had very little flavor. The main plus about this hotel was the staff. All the staff in every area were extra friendly. Parking was easy. Unpacking our car was easy with carts provided, as well as an outside elevator. Overall, I would not pick this as our first choice, but it's okay for a last minute choice when other choices are filled up.
