Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Had a blast with the grandkids!
I'm a widowed grandmother of four and decided to take my grandkids including my daughter on a nice vacation. I've always wanted to share a special moment I had on the beach with my late husband. My husband and I traveled to Golf Shores, AL, stayed on the beach and had a balcony over looking the Gulf of Mexico. I loved that trip and always wanted to do it over and over again. Unfortunately, I never got the chance to do it again with him so I decided to do it with my grandkids but my daughter suggested we go to Ft. Walton Bch instead and I'm happy she did. Ft. Walton Bch was prettier, we had a lot to do, lots of entertainment for the kids and the pool was great for them. I felt safe and I knew my grandkids were ecstatic. The staff was very friendly and welcoming from the moment we got there. When I returned home my grandkids thanked me for taking them on such a wonderful vacation. They have returned to Texas since then but I'm happy to know I brought them joy and happiness by sharing this wonderful moment. Thanks to Holiday Inn Resort, Ft. Walton Bch, FL "I had a blast with my grandkids!"

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Scriv Relaxing stay but expected more
We enjoyed a short trip but expected more out of the resort. The food and facilities were excellent. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The food service staff did not pay attention to their stations and we waited too long for refills, etc... The price of the resort requires more activities and improved ambiance to make it a value. We will be back and give it another shot!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fiveatthebeach New Fort Walton Hotel
The Holiday Inn Resort Fort Walton Beach is a relatively new property, with terrific staff who are obviously very well managed. The resort is clean and comfortable, with a great pool and excellent white-sand uncrowded beach access. The room and bathroom sizes are a bit on the smaller scale - and definitely go for the ocean view rooms. All-in-all, a wonderful simple, affordable family vacation spot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redbugchick Comfortable bed and great service
This is the second year in a row we have stayed at Holiday Inn Resort in Ft. Walton Beach. Everything was always neat and clean and the service was great. The only thing that would have been nicer was to have an ice machine on our floor. We stayed a full week and only went out to eat 2 times. The restaurant is great and very reasonably priced. Overall, great vacation. Are thinking about bringing our kids and grandkids next time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by IHG Platinum Elite member It's worth to pay extra for what other hotels don't have
Lazy river is what we can't have at any other hotels, so we chose this hotel regardless of the higher price.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kevin W2014 OK Stay
This hotel is right on the beach, has a nice pool, and many of the staff are friendly. The rooms are not bad, but the bathroom needed a little more attention. The staff members at the front desk were absolutely awesome, especially Zac. He was very attentive to our needs and he was courteous, friendly, and genuine. The waitstaff in the restaurant were friendly, but were not very attentive to us or anyone else. It took forever to get the food. In my opinion, the rooms are very overpriced for what you get. Don't expect the lap of luxury, but if you want a place to stay on the beach with no frills, this will work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Reesa11 Great stay
Beautiful resort on the Gulf of Mexico. The property is very clean and well kept. Beautiful private beach. Chair and umbrella rental was a good value for the week. Pool was clean. Outdoor bar was nice but closed very early. I enjoyed the fact that there was not a lot of people around and was relaxing. It is definitely more of a family centered hotel rather than for couples. Lots of kids. They had a movie each night for kids out by the pool. I ate lunch pool side two days and this was good. Rooms were clean. Did have to ask two days to get my room cleaned and new towels as it wasn't done by mid afternoon, but other than that I had no issues. Hotel was very close to everywhere we were interested in going to. I would recommend hotel and would go back. Best things were cleanliness and proximity to the beautiful beach.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheryl_68 Awesome Stay!!
This was our Very first Family Vacation and we couldn't have been more pleased. My husband and children have never been to Florida or seen the Ocean and were not disappointed. The staff were courteous and friendly and the rooms and facility were clean. We hope to come back again next year.
