Dwayne OsterhoutGeneral ManagerIn June of 2021 it will mark my second year with Nationwide as the General Manager of the Fort Walton Beach property. I have enjoyed my time with this company in a large part do to the support we receive from upper management all the way to the CEO of the company. If I ever have an issue or concern with any aspect of my day to day operations I get immediate response from my Regional Director of Operations and if she can not provide an answer she get’s one. The Benefit program across the board is one of the best I have seen in my over 37 years in the business and I started out with Corporate Hotel’s like Hyatt Hilton and Marriott. Coming from Full Service Convention Hotel’s and Resorts I have learned all about top service and high expectations. Woodspring Suites is a special Brand with in the Choice Hotel’s offering less frill but at a great price and still maintaining a high standard just like the “Big Boys” in business like those Corporate Hotel’s I mentioned earlier. I would recommend working for this company to anyone and prove to be a strong mentor to anyone coming on board. Good Luck to you in your career in the Hospitality Business !
Crystal TackettGeneral ManagerPrior to my employment with Nationwide Hotel Management Company, I held numerous titled positions with different hotel chains, but there was never an opportunity for growth – my most recent position being an Operations Manager at a Mid-Service Marriott. Two years later, I found myself in the same position at the same hotel. I was continually passed over, or not even considered for advancement. In August of 2019, my General Manger was promoted to the Reginal Director of Operations. That was when it became clear that I had a chance to reach for my goal, and I applied for the GM position. I underwent a series of interviews and was chosen to be the General Manager of the Dayton hotel. This is my first time as a GM, and I have to say I love it!
