We came back later and the room reeked of dog urine.... More

This is a good value hotel for longer stays. The staff were great. The room was spacious and the facilities are good. Free laundry facilities is a bonus. It only takes about 10 minutes to get to Sanibel.

I've been staying here for 5 years and it has gotten worse each visit. This will be my last stay. The ice machine in the fridge never works. Different items are missing from the kitchen. The comforters are gross. I have never seen a property and it's service decline so much. They never even came to my room when asked.
