It was very clean and right off highway. There is no real dining room to have your breakfasts so you have to grab food and go back to your room. It was very hot as hallway have no a/c and the one elevator in whole building was very slow and hot! Also it is not "right across from ocean" as your view is other buildings actually on the water.
Very worth the money for one night before checking into our condo. We will definitely try to stay here again next year. Check in was easy Breakfast was great (waffles, biscuits, cereal, pastries, coffee, juice, etc) Rooms mostly Looked and felt clean Beds comfortable Staff very friendly The floor/carpet had my bare feet dirty after just a little bit of walking be around barefoot, but I'm not sure that can be helped because so close to the beach. Wasn't a huge deal, We just kept our shoes on once we realized it. It won't keep us from staying here again bc the rest of the experience was great.
This being a great Location was the only thing that saved this review. The stench of mildew was overpowering the room. It left everything feeling damp and musty. A good suggestion would be to install a dehumidifier in every room. I could not walk on carpet without shoes on. I will not be going back nor do I recommend to anyone. Hope this review helps someone who is considering this hotel.
The location is great, very close to the beach (we walked there several times) the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a bit smaller than we anticipated ( had double queen) we had 2 couples and it was a bit cramped with luggage and coolers. However for a quick stay the price was great and convenient for a very fast beach trip.
i liked the short breezeway type hallways poor parking lot
The beds were great! The continental breakfast was good. Sometimes hard to get out of parking lot due to traffic but manageable.
how close it was to the beach the construction in the arae
Price. Inclusive Brkfst. Location to Beach & other amenities Staff was friendly & courteous The Room Service started off OK but slowly declined. I.e. No bed making unless told, no fresh shower mat. Room seemed somewhat damp. Nothing dried out very well especially bathroom. Brkfst items declined after 9am on certain days. Poor ventilation thru-out. A nice heat lamp in bathroom would b ideal Condition of room clean but ceiling & curtains need upgrade
All the staff that we dealt with were polite and helpful. Rooms were clean for the age of the hotel. Close to public beach and restaurants. Easy location. Shower heads were weak and had a very wide spray. It was difficult for my 6 year old to wash her hair.
Beds were comfortable. Room was clean. Nice buffet breakfast. Clear pool. 1 minute drive to free parking for beach. 6-7 min walk to the beach from the hotel. All the staff were very nice. 5 minute drive to Destin with no traffic. 15 min drive with traffic. Short drive to the grocery shopping at Publix. Short walk or drive to restaurants. Room door opened to the open hall way.
Great location with a water view from the top floors. Building showing its age despite a modern updated feel. Some peeling paint in the bathroom.
-Quick entry/exit process (seconds for each). -Staff responded immediately to an issue with the TV and repaired within 2 minutes. -Bedding was reasonably comfortable. -It was clearly either a smoking room, or the previous tenant smoked in the room. There was no mention of that. -Small detail, but it seemed odd to not have even a small trash can in the bathroom. -Could use some modernization (mini fridge/microwave/coffee pot).
The friendliness of the staff
I loved the polite and friendly staff! They serve a huge breakfast with many choices! I absolutely LOVE that are truly pet friendly- and even have an area for walking your dog! So awesome! The hotel was so clean, and the pool was very nice! I will stay here again! They even helped us when we chose to stay another night, unplanned. They were quick to keep us informed and updated. Nothing that the hotel did was a problem. It was the careless, irresponsible people who were letting their dogs use the bathroom in areas that WERENT designated for dog use. And NOT cleaning it up. Those kind of people are the ones that ruin it for others.
Rooms were very nice if a bit small. Internet hasn't worked properly time we've stayed at this hotel. Even after notifying management. They responded quickly, but within a short time, the wife was out again. Pool was very cloudy this stay. Need to check on pool chemicals more often.
We loved the location. It was literally right on the beach! And Amanda was so great! Helpful, Friendly and went the extra mile to make us feel comfortable and happy!!
We like it very much it was clean and the beds were comfortable. All in all except for the weather we appreciate our stay at Hampton Inn Fort Walton Beach.
The friendliest staff I have ever experienced at a hotel. They hotel was very nice and very clean. I cannot believe how great and helpful the staff were. If you are traveling to Fort Walton Beach, this is the perfect place to stay. I did not have a single complaint about this hotel.
Beautiful decoration, nice pool, friendly staff. N/a
Our room was very nice with updated and furniture, full kitchen, comfortable king size bed and walk in shower and separate jet tub. Our unit overlooked the bay as well. You get all the amenities of Sandestin without paying the typical Sandestin price.
We only stayed one night. It was a shopping trip/beach trip. The room was much nicer than I expected. I did not realize there was a large balcony facing the bay. The room (a one bedroom suite) was comfortable, clean, and had plenty of space for two adults and two children. The kitchen was well equipped and had everything we needed. We liked the beach access at Finz, and spent the afternoon at the beach which was beautiful. There was a boardwalk with showers by Finz. There was a tram available, but we chose to drive down to the beach, and it only took a few minutes to get there,and there was plenty of parking. I would definitely stay here again, and I would recommend it, and actually I already have. There was nothing that I did not like about the hotel, I only wished we could have stayed longer but I had to be back home by Wednesday morning.
Great price for a beach front hotel - very clean with modern appliances. The bed is very comfortable and the staff will go out of their way to accomodate you. The walls are too thin and you can hear conversations in other rooms. Also, the elevator runs from the parking lot to all floors without stopping at the lobby floor first - this means that anyone can come off the street and gain access to all floors without any noticing. Need better building access security even though it is located in a relatively safe area.
The hotel was very clean, the staff was super friendly and I was very happy there was recycling going on.
This was the WORSE hotel I've EVER stayed at. I checked out a day early bc it was so bad. There was mold in the shower. Out shower broke twice and when we called the front desk to have them come fix it they were so rude about it. The room was dirty. The microwave and mini frig looked like neither of them have been cleaned in months. Please DO NOT waste your time or money to stay there! I hated the whole time stayed there...
The room was clean. The beds were comfortable. The water pressure was great. The staff was nice. The wood floors were really nice. It's a good place to stay for a few nights and it's about two or three miles to the Destin Boardwalk and beach. The outside of the hotel sourroundings looked a bit sketchy. The room smelt a little stuffy, so bring some air freshener. Be sure to request that the Air conditioner is turned on before arrival.its Florida & it's hot!
Very nice rooms The staff was rude
You could smell how clean it was, comfy bed, having a personal fridge and microwave was nice. Marble topped everything. For the money very spacious. Only one vending machine/soda machine and it's located at the front by the office. No other complaints really.
The hotel was affordable and the rooms were updated. The room wasn't very clean.. The floors felt dirty and it was obvious the side tables hadn't been wiped down as they were sticky and had drink rings on them. The comforter looked stained and dirty so we did not use, and they did not have any extra blankets. Luckily we had brought our own. We didn't end up needing it because the room was super hot. The shower curtain smelled of urine when showering.. And the blow dryer was sticky and dirty. Luckily we had brought our own. There was also hair all in the "clean" rags and towels. This would have been a great stay if hotel staff would simply take the time to clean and wash properly. A few extra steps could go a long way in this case. Overall, it was okay. Me and my fiance made the best of it as we were only staying one night. Wouldn't have wanted to stay any longer. It was the best price in the area for what it was, though. Definitely better than the Days Inn.. Would never stay there. Probably won't be back to Fairway Inn. By
Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff friendly to us. No frills but wasn't expecting that. Other reviews were bad and when I checked in there were two couples demanding refunds saying they couldn't stay there. Clearly they had a different experience than we did.
Very clean and bed was very comfortable. Liked the hardwood floors as opposed to carpet. Affordable There was no breakfast offered. Location to beach wasn't great. Definitely couldn't walk to the beach
It was a perfect place to stay, clean, friendly staff, extremely quiet, beautiful room. I would highly recommend it.
It was a nice quiet stay that was close to the airport. No issues.
I liked the front desk personnel. I enjoyed the internet. The bed was extremely soft. 27 inch television was small. Room not as big as most rooms with a King Size Bed. Small Microwave. Too expensive for a holiday period. Small outdoor pool.
