This is an older building, but has been well kept. It has a fun "Florida" décor with bright colors. The lure of course the Gulf of Mexico. The water is probably less than 100 yards away, with a great outdoor heated pool in between. Our room was one with a balcony which is "protected", which was useful as one day...

Made reservations four months ahead of time through Expedia for a beachfront room for four nights. This trip was a special anniversary trip. I was given the choice to pay right there or pay at the hotel when I arrived which is what I chose to do. I was asked to provide a credit card number then. About a month...

We booked this Best Western for one night the end of February and wished we could have stayed longer. When we arrived we were very impressed with the Mid Century Modern decor in pleasing beach and sea colors plus the view of the pool and sand dunes was so inviting. Our room had a beach and gulf view with a...

All in all this property was a good fit for us. It is an older hotel & is definitely not fancy. Very basic but that is what we were looking for. We had a beachfront room on the third floor with a balcony that looked out over the pool & the beach. Our balcony only had 2 chairs on it....

This hotel is right on the beach which is why we chose it. Good choice! Room was clean and bed comfortable. Staff is friendly, breakfast is typical, but good and varied. There is plenty of seating for breakfast. Pool is heated and clean. Just over the dune walkway behind the pool, you are on the beach. Starting in March the...

We needed a hotel for a business trip within the confines of our budget and this hotel did so. The decor is a bit dated though beachy. Having a balcony in the room was a plus and access to the beach even though we had no time to go to the beach. The breakfast area is quite small, but they...

Would stay again, great hotel staff, clean, comfortable. Beach front views with easy access. Nice balcony rooms. Hotel is a great value. Clean heated pool for early season swimming. Free breakfast. Nice little bar. I will be back to visit one of the best beaches in Florida. Can't go wrong with Okalooosa Island or Best Western.

We stopped in here on our way back from Disney World, just so we could say we had been to the Gulf. Amazing place. We loved the Hotel, staff was extremely friendly. Wish we weren't so tired, we would have stayed longer!
