Best Western Fort Walton Beachfront: Stylish, swanky, and brightly colored

Could the decor in the lobby of the Best Western Fort Walton Beach Resort be any cuter? The playful colors–flamingo pink, key lime pie green, ocean blue–recall those days in the 1960s when travelers were just discovering Florida’s impossibly white beaches, turquoise waters, and fragrant orange groves.

Cheerful polka dots are everywhere! That’s my daughter in the chair–but it could just as easily be famed fashion designer Lily Pulitzer who got her start in Florida as a clothing designer in 1961. Her clothes made with gloriously bright pink, green, and turquoise fabrics would fit right in the lobby at the Beachfront.

Why go in the ocean when you can sit in these gorgeous turquoise blue chairs?

It’s a world of color at the Fort Walton Beachfront.
The pool sits right outside the lobby on the beach. Here my son contemplates diving in. He’s thrilled when he learns from the friendly woman at the front desk that the pool is indeed heated.

Comfy lounge chairs line the outdoor pool. On a warm sunny day, you just might be tempted to stay here all day.

My daughter tests the water. “It’s warm Mom! Come in!”

The Beachfront sits on a white, sugary beach.

Every room facing the Gulf of Mexico has its own private balcony.
