The stay at the Holiday Inn Resort was amazing. I loved the ocean view. The rooms where very comfortable and spacious. I will definitely stay at this location the next time I visit Destin. Marquette at the front desk was very helpful and pleasant.

I visited Fort Walton Beach for a wedding. This hotel was perfect for the stay. Being on the beach was an amazing experience. Great hotel. Nice lobby, bar, restaurant, and pool.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cleo02 Wonderful bartending staff
The resort was in really good shape and it was a very relaxing atmosphere. I want to especially acknowledge the bartending staff who were awesome. Spent the afternoons at the Tiki Bar which is outside with a great view of the ocean and the occasional dolphins swimming by. Incredibly relaxing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by xxjamestxx Generally pleased, but with one exception.
In general, I was very pleased with my week-long stay. The staff were very friendly, the room was fine and had a wonderful view, and I feel I received a decent value. My one complaint, and it really did irk me, is that because mid-September is apparently considered out of season several amenities I expected were unavailable - specifically the breakfast buffet and poolside tiki bar. While I understand the need to control costs, the hotel does bill itself as a "resort". As I said, I was happy with everything we DID receive, I'm just disappointed for what we missed. Other guests we spoke to tended to feel the same way.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yasir_ be careful about some staff members
This is a good hotel- Pool is awesome- on the beach with access- in and out door pools- clean- enough parking- gulf view rooms- kids will enjoy as multiple activities for 'em- small gift/needed item shop inside resort- rooms are big- free parking
Cons- Have to pay for beach chairs- breakfast not free - some staff members are rude and do not care attitude, but some are very nice- don't expect anything if you are a elite member, request might be denied easily- gulf view rooms extra pay- book in way advance or just forget about any requests being granted-
would i go back?-- -may be, but it depends if i get a better deal/pool/onthebeach/better reviewed hotel somewhere else or not

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by lashermon1 Room not made up
Originally assigned room was not made up. I was reassigned to a room next to the elevator with a promise to clean the ocean view room and transfer my suitcase the next day while I was away on business. Upon return I was rudely told that I have stay in the room next to the elevator due to my government rate payment. My main disappointment was the lack of professionalism in communications. However, I was very impressed with one member of the front desk staff named Courtney, she knows the meaning of customer service and could provide lessons to the others. House keeping was also lacking, my room was not vacuumed, I saw bread crumbs in the same spot throughout my stay.
