We frequently add a day or two at this hotel when we spend our week-long vacations on Sanibel. It works perfectly for us as it is also pet friendly. The rooms are clean, there is plenty of parking around the perimeter of the hotel. The pool is large and great for families. People seem to like the breakfasts, but I... More

This is my favorite motel near Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island. If you can't afford to stay on the beach this is a great place. Always get a room that overlooks the pool. Very nice pool setting and tropical. Great food for breakfast and it is free. Nice up to date rooms. Have stayed here several times. Prices are... More

Stay elsewhere! The rooms are dated, more importantly the bed is terrible. We stayed 2 nights and both of us woke each morning with terrible pains in our lower back which does not happen to us at home or anywhere else we stay. The mattress needs to be replaced. Also the shower water pressure is very weak, complained about it... More

Stayed over New Year 2015. One might have expected lots of noise considering new Years but hotel nice and quiet for the kids. Pool great - lovely and warm even in late evening. Service and front desk staff awesome. Second time back here. Perfect location to Sanibel beaches.

We booked a king room for seven nights, but checked out after one night! If it wasn't already late at night, we would have left immediately! Upon arrival to the hotel, the rude desk clerk, Nicole, informed me that I would need to pick the 2 days that I wanted my room to be cleaned and when I told her... More

Location and price were very good, if you are spending your time outside of the room. Room, smelled stale and looked dated. Bed very comfortable and very clean. Housekeeping run raged, (5 nights, one visit from housekeeping) big property, not enough staff, I guess-not their fault, managements! Pool & spa were great-big pool, nice and warm. Loved that.

We checked into our courtyard (pool) room on January 2nd. Unpacked all belongings and sanitized the room's 'touched' items. The view and usage of the pool is what any Florida trip was all about. By the next morning we knew our A/C had died so we contacted the front desk. After 2 hours of their maintenance staff attempting to repair... More

In the beginning I was concerned about the out side doors. They were not an issue. Our door opened into the pool area. The staff was friendly. The hotel is very centrally located to the beaches, shopping and plenty of places to eary.

We stayed in the La Quinta at the foot of the Sanibel Island bridge, this location was great for our needs, rates were reasonable, especially for the long weekend after the New Year. The room and bathroom were very clean, and the mattress and bedding comfortable. The complimentary toiletries were extremely small in size, the soap and shampoo so miniscule... More

Check in is @3:00pm but our room was still not ready at 4:15 when we arrived so we had to wait 25 more minutes. We also noticed an old smell in the room. Hotel was full so it is what it is. Not Sure if I will use this hotel and one of the reasons I chose this one was... More
