We booked two rooms at this establishment. We got lucky they were next to each other. The rooms were good size. Then you had its fun. In one room there was a couch with questionable stains so I didn't want to sit on it. I didnt also want to take my shoes off because of the disgusting carpet. in one... More

Having pre booked for two nights, my friends and I arrived at the motel at about 4pm-5pm. There was no one in the reception and after about 20 minutes of trying to raise someone, one of my party went through to the back of the reception and woke the manager up. He was very laid back and gave us the... More

Do not book a room here. Three weeks ago, my husband and I booked a room at the Estero Bay Motel. The location was optimal, it looked cute from the pictures, and the website promised some great accommodations. When we got there, it was a huge disappointment to say the least. "Pure horror" may be a more appropriate way of... More

Don't bother making a reservation at this hotel! Oh, they'll make it - but they won't KEEP it! If someone comes along before you do, they give your room away! Read on - there's plenty of reviews here that say the same thing. We pulled in 5 pm on a Saturday evening and they pretended they didn't know anything about... More

I reserved this motel for a wedding in town because it didn't cost an arm and a leg and it allowed dogs. By the time I read the reviews, I had already booked and every other place that allowed dogs was full and I was stuck with it. Do not go into it thinking it will be better than expected.... More

Had reservations for holiday weekend but when we arrived we were told there were no rooms available even tho there were no cars in the lot, no one in any of the rooms, and the sign said vacancy. The manager denied he had confirmed the reservations from 3 weeks before but didn't know how to answer when I showed him... More

We arrived at 6:00 on a Saturday night and were told that they did not honor Orbitz reservations despite the fact that I was holding it, complete with confirmation number, in my hand. They said they didn't have any rooms but we found a listing for it on Expedia for four times the price we had reserved for. Orbitz was... More

The furnishings and bathroom fixtures are older (like the 1960's), the bathtub/shower was surrounded by dark mildew stains (so bad I couldn't bring myself to take a shower), and the walls were extremely thin and I could hear everything going on in the room next door. The breakfast consisted of low quality muffins and cold cereal. I couldn't find any... More

I stayed three nights and found the room clean, comfortable,and quiet. The bed was comfortable and the in room coffee, refrigerator, microwave were sufficient. The continental breakfast was simple, but enough for first thing in the morning. The management was friendly, accommodating, and welcoming.

We stayed in this motel for one night in August and were really disappointed of the quality we got for the money (145$ for a double bed room). The worst part of our stay was to wake up from the bed and see the creature we were sleeping with: BEDBUGS! This room was probably no 19. We got at least... More
