We stayed here for a week while attending to some business in the area. The room was spotless, the bed - extremely comfortable - although one side was pushed up against a wall which didn't allow one of us to get into bed from the side.... There's a microwave, full size fridge, two burner stove, dishwasher, toaster, small drip coffee...

I stayed at Candlewood Suites for several weeks while in the process of moving. Everything about my stay was great. The hotel is clean and I felt safe - probably two of the most important features when choosing a place to stay. Sanibel and Fort Myers beach are about 10 minutes away and you'll pay a fraction of what it...

We stayed at this hotel for six days for a sporting event. This trip required that we visit several different parts of Fort Myers for sports events and this hotel was centrally located although there were not a lot of restaurants directly beside the hotel. The airport was about ten minutes away and it was located in a secluded and...

“Although the room AC was a loud, the room itself was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, etc. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family. We loved the "family atmosphere" of the hotel and the incredible staff.”
