We stayed here for 10 days the last of December 2012. We booked this hotel as it was close enough to Sanibel Island / Captiva Island. The staff were very helpful, I believe Charlie was his name and he was extremely accommodating. We travelled with 2 smalls kids aged 6 & 3 and we found that this hotel suits our...

We are Family Friendly! With an outdoor pool and the beaches just minutes away, I am glad your family had a great time. Our staff treats you like you are staying in our home. Just a short drive to almost anywhere in Fort Myers, we have a great, quiet location suitable for families or local business people.

Got a great rate here and stayed just 1night although would have been happy to stay longer. Not a wonderful location but fine if you have a car. The suites have a kitchen, sitting area as well as a bedroom and bath. Would have no hesitation in staying again.

Luckily, we are in a cul-de-sac and all our rooms are very quiet. There is no street noise like some hotels off the highway. Next time, ask for a room overlooking the pond so you can see the turtles, the alligator and all our Florida wildlife.

Close to trolly stop for beach. Great pool and deck area. Rooms clean and well cared for. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It's nice to have kitchen area for breakfast and snacks. Only complaint I have on this chain is there are no ice machines. The ice maker in frig isn't adequate for a cooler

Being 4 miles from Fort Myers Beach, a short drive to Sanibel Island, and minutes from Downtown, makes us central to all Fort Myers has to offer! Beach, Shopping, Restaurants, Night Life, I hope you bring comfortable shoes on your next stay!
