convenient to Trolly or beach. Had a 2 room suite that was perfect for our stay. Stayed here several times. Excellent place for price and convenience. Nice staff. Has free laundry facilities which come in handy for beach towels. They also have a lending program. Includes beach chairs, toys, kitchen gadgets. Great idea. Free video library. Lots for kids.

We luckily found this hotel at the last minute and wow what a great place to stay! Traveling with three kids under 5 we needed exactly what we found here, home. The separate bedroom allowed for uninterrupted naps while the fully supplied kitchen allowed me to cook for our picky eaters. The free laundry was a huge bonus and made... More

Stayed one night in March 2015. The hotel is located just off the road heading to Sanibel in a quiet medical park area. The staff was friendly and the room was comfortable and in very good condition. I was traveling solo and stayed in a room with one queen. The bed was comfortable, but one side was pushed up against... More

We arrived at approx. 2:30 pm and waited for our room until 5 pm. It is clean and comfortable. Some of the front desk staff are extremely courteous and professional while others need to polish their skills, for example, when someone is asking to replace something in their room, one really shouldn't say, "What do you want?" The small gym... More

After a 15 day cruise from LA to Ft. Lauderdale, we decided to spend some days in Southern Florida, Sanibel Island, and maybe a trip to Key West. The reception staff was great and very kind in helping with local directions and possible adventures, since both my wife and I had not spent much time in Sourthern FL. The motel,... More

I recently stayed here for 10 nights on business, at the AAA rate of $75/night. I wanted a place with a kitchenette, to save on meal expenses. The room had a full size refrigerator, microwave, stove top, dishwasher, but no oven. It had all the necessary dishes, utensils, pots/pans for basic cooking, even had some tupperware for storage of leftovers.... More
