Yes they are. We had considered Ft. Walton Beach and we had a decent rate for there. I believe it was for the Days Inn and the price that was quoted was $75 a night. The manager there said that they specialize in family reunions. It still might be better for you in Pensacola because the Appaloosa (sp) County Airport is there. If I can be of help to you in getting a good rate let me know and I will gladly help. I have had some success at getting good rates. If I knew what your requirements are (accomodations, etc.) I could submit a proposal for you and let the hotels bid to get a contract with you. In the hotel business, family reunions are big business! To the industry a contract for a family reunion is guaranteed room occupancy. We are in Crestview not very far from Destin. We are using the Jameson Inn $65 and the Holiday Inn $74. These are prices that the hotels called and offered me. At first the Holiday Inn didnot want to come down from their normal $89 plus tax until their corporate offices got involved. We use them every other year and they donot want to lose our business because they know from our history with them that even tho we only reserve 30 rooms in advance, in the end we use just about every room in their hotel. That's a guaranteed full house for at least 3 to 4 nights. Let me know if I can help. (by the way for future reference this (Jessie) is a she not a (Jesse)he. Everyone thinks I'm a man. LOL.
