Great hotel for a long weekend at the beach. Some hi-lights from this hotel: the restaurant is delicious, fun things to do at pool for kids, movies, mermaids, pirates. Bartenders fun and make delicious drinks. Close to great restaurants. We had 2 rooms, one room was fine but the other smelled horrible! They brought spray to try and cover the smell but it didn’t help after a whole day they offered a new room. So they did fix the problem. We would stay here again.

So disappointed! I wrote a review a few years ago and never responded because I thought that maybe things would be better. We checked in today on points and they tried to charge us $900.00. We couldn’t understand what the clerk was saying for his mask. We had to ask over and over what he was saying. He never removed his mask so we could hear him. He had to get someone to come help him. We still couldn’t get an ocean front room, even though we are Spire members. Spire should trump everyone else. Couldn’t even sit at the bar outside. Off my soapbox!

We had a wonderful stay at the Holiday Inn Resort Fort Walton. The hotel was in good condition and we were happy with the cleanliness of our room as well as the common areas. We had a room on the parking lot side of the building so we didn't have a balcony but beds were comfortable, there were plenty of pillows and good space for luggage and beach accessories. The only negative about our room was the comically small TV set. The pool and hot tub area were great. The pool was a nice size, kept at a comfortable temperature and we were usually able to find a seat at the pool. The direct beach access was very convenient and the beach itself was perfect. We ate several meals at the onsite restaurant. The food was surprisingly good and kids under 12 eating free was a nice perk as food can get expensive. Parking was included and there was enough food and attractions within walking distance that we didn't need to drive too often during our stay. Overall, we loved the hotel. There was a relaxing, laid-back atmosphere with plenty of things to keep kids busy. I can see how someone without children might find this place a bit crazy but for our family it was perfect.

My husband and I spent a total of nine nights here and loved everything about this gem! Beautiful pool, beach is a step away and the staff was amazing! If you are looking for somewhere local to eat, Stewby’s has a great fried fish of the day. Thank you everyone especially Stephan for making this feel like home. We will definitely be back as soon as we can.

It‘s nice to the sit on the balcony and look over the endless ocean in front of you. You don’t have this marvelous view if you pick a room to the parking lot side. Pool area with waterfall and lazy river is nice, but nothing beats the beach. Bar music is sometimes a bit loud. Rooms are standard, nothing special. Housekeeping is currently limited due to Covid-19. A few restaurants are in walking distance, although one needs to take the car to cross Brooks Bridge to downtown Fort Walton, or even the East Pass Bridge to get to Destin. All together it’s a good place to stay for a few days. We’d come back for sure if we are in the area.
