We arrived at Avalon Landing RV Park Sunday afternoon. This is the park our Adventure Caravan starts from on 27 Feb. We decided to arrive a couple days early so we could go to the cemetery where Ray's parents are buried, get the truck serviced and see friends. The RV Park is located off I-10 just across Escambia Bay. It is a short drive into Pensacola and Milton. A really nice clean park. It has ...
Never changed the alarm clock and woke up early for a breakfast. Then Coach Crawl to go through all the different units. We had a group shot photo. Then for a Soup Supper catered. Very hood homemade soup and desserts. Hung around for a little karaoke. Ate dinner with Jim and Nadine, Lester and Margaret. Pooped ...
... to dinner, Mary and I did a little touring of Venice, a city with a history dating back to the late 1800's, the downtown area is well planned and neat with the main street full of interesting shops and a lot of foot traffic. We took a short, cool windy walk on the beach. A surprising number of faithful beachgoers were bundled up and sitting on the beach. Where is the Florida weather?
... write home about but the food was worth the stop for sure.
We woke up Sunday to clear blue skies without any clouds in sight. I was so excited for a day with a high of 60 and 0% chance of rain. We started the day with a good four mile run on the beach which felt incredible. We ran past the towns mentioned earlier that had enormous houses and picture perfect gazebos overlooking the gulf. Even with the perfect weather, the beach was very quiet because ...
... br> We are all four sitting together, but are making the trip in different ways. Shannon (school counselor) and her mom are driving (Griswold-like) from Florida to Vegas before taking a bus to the game and back. Anthony will be flying out from Atlanta on Sunday and will meet me in Los Angeles. Flights out to LA were pretty easy to find. Flights BACK the next day were priced in a silly way, and by the time I got my tickets, I would not ...

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Ft. Walton Beachfront Fort Walton Beach
We stayed 7 nights Sept. 19 2003. Oceanview is the only way! Very clean rooms and overall well kept. The staff is freindly and helpfull. Great pool and wonderful beach. The swizzle stick is handy for bar time, daily specials..
Enjoyed my stay!
I stayed here Veterans Day Weekend, 2002. Originally booked an inland room but was treated to a free upgrade to a beautiful ocean front room upon arrival. Rooms were clean and well kept - decorated in pleasant beachy pastels. Staff was very attentive and helpful. There's a free breakfast in the art deco lobby every morning which is simple but adequate. Hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of shopping, restaurants and area attractions. The Emerald Coast is Florida's best kept secret. Would definitely stay at this hotel again!
Stayed at this hotel last August (Aug 2002) for my 4 year old daughter's first trip to the beach. At $140 a night I expected much more! The elevator was very hot and stuffy. The desk staff was not exactly up to speed. There was only 1 washer and dryer for the entire hotel adn they were almost blanketed in sand. I only used teh dryer to get the worst of the damp out of our swimsuits before the trek home.
Wonderful view, great deal
Our family stayed here over spring break in April 2003. After a mix-up over our arrival date, the manager gave us a gulf-front room that was fantastic! Easy walk out to the most beautiful beach! Breakfast was basic but plentiful, and the only two negatives were that we were directly above the lounge, and it got a bit noisy a couple of nights, and the staff was a bit slow to take care of a sanitation issue in the pool. Overall a wonderful stay. If you go make sure you get an upper floor away from the lounge, especially on the weekend.
We traveled for the first time to Florida and the beach, it was the first vacation in 10 years for our family. We had requested a nonsmoking room and was told when we got there that there were no nonsmoking rooms and we would have to stay there. When we got back to our room, the maintenance guy was spraying Febreze all around, nice gesture, but now the room smelled like smokey Febreze. There was mold on the plastic curtain on our window, and the laundry room was very dirty not to mention the fact that there was only one washer/dryer for 6 floors of rooms. The one thing I can say about this experience, is that the bed was comfortable.
We stayed here the week of June 22,03. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Our oceanfront room was great. Enjoyed the continental breakfast each morning. Nice pool and the hotel employees where very nice. Would definitly stay here again.
The hotel is clean and bright but I got gyped by the hotel and Orbitz. For $140 a night I had thought I was booking an oceanfront view but was given a room overlooking parking lot. They were not very helpfull in trying to rectify the situation. My contact with the ocean was limited.
My husband, son, infant son and I stayed here last summer for a week. This is a very nice hotel. It is kept very clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Finally a mid-priced beachfront hotel with some style. This place looks awesome! The decor is right out of a hip George Jetson movie, funky colors, fun look and beautiful beaches. We loved the friendly staff, made us feel so welcome the week were there. Why can't other hotels get this? Just be friendly and nice to everyone and they will love you.
Done in a very 1950's art deco, think the Rat Pack, style with bright pastel colors everywhere, the Best Western in Fort Walton Beach is a hip place to stay. Great views of the ocean are available, and man is that water pretty... Emerald green and sugar white sand beaches that you thought were only in post cards.
