Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindi15 Pleasant surprise
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Ft. Walton when it was on Okaloosa Island. That property was "fine." When we arrived to this property, we had no idea the outstanding upgrade you had made. It's beautiful, clean and sooooooooooo much better. The lazy river is an excellent addition. The beach area is great, although we thought the umbrella and chair rentals were pricey. Other than that, everything was fantastic. Martisha at the front desk was super nice. Letty served our breakfast and works very hard and has a pleasant attitude. The people at the pool bar work hard and seem to love their job. We will DEFINITELY stay at this property again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cindi15 BIG SURPRISE!
When we made this reservation, we had no idea that this hotel was comparable to a very popular resort in Destin owned by a competitor. In fact, this hotel is BETTER because you're not "nickled and dimed" your entire visit. Parking is free and other amenities are. When we arrived, Matisha greeted us warmly, professionally and made me truly feel welcome. She obviously loves her job. The room was OUTSTANDING!! For this price, I was amazed!! The pool area is second to none! Other resorts might have larger areas, but this was EXCELLENT. I love the music you play and you truly provide an area of relaxation. The Lazy River is AWESOME!! The beach area is great. It wasn't overly crowded and it is very well kept. We didn't rent a chair and umbrella as they were quite pricey. We thought that would be included in our stay but it isn't. The food that you can order from the pool area is DELICIOUS!! The beer was cold and the drinks were fantastic. The staff was SUPER friendly, but obviously short staffed around the grill/bar. I had to wait a long time for a sandwich but it wasn't the staff's fault. They were super nice. Letty served our breakfast on Saturday morning and was very kind and pleasant. When staff members have such a positive attitude, it adds to a pleasant experience. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. Stay there again? WITHOUT ANY DOUBT!! Recommend it to others? WITHOUT ANY HESITATION!! I already have told MANY friends how wonderful it is. THANK YOU!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmiy very inviting hotel
This hotel is very welcoming..Front desk staff was great and upgraded us nicely. The room was clean and bright. The manager of this hotel is very hands-on with his staff and will make sure his hotel is well run. The only thing that was sad here was the food service rest, rip-tide. The food was just ok and the service was very slow. We ordered a seafood dish and they gave us spaghetti sauce for dipping?
The pool area is clean and well kept. Easy access to the beach. Beware no chairs from hotel to beach area you must rent them for $30/daily, they should give you a break if you are a guest here. This was suprising to me since this is a resort hotel and thought rather pricey.
Bar staff was great and drinks were awesome....

EXCELLENT!!!! From the minute we pulled into the resort -from the soft music playing to the quality of everything. The ENTIRE staff -from the minute we checked in until we checked out genuinely seemed just as happy to be there as we were. We were there for 5 days and my husband and I found everything to be of excellent quality. I have stayed at holiday inns before and this has to be the best one so far. We will definitely stay here again. The only complaint I have is that we had to leave and head back to the real world. My heartfelt thanks to the entire staff for excellent service from the beginning of our stay until the end.
