This hotel is in a good location. There is a Publix right next door which is very convenient. Not too far from Sanibel or Fort Myers Beach. We had a lovely view of the Gulf from our window. Bunche Beach is 2 miles away which is beautiful although not your typical beach but more of a preserve. Great for fishing!... More

This hotel is convenient to the Sanibel Causeway which is the best thing about it. The negatives: The hotel itself is showing its wear. Carpets are in much need of cleaning both in the hallways and rooms. When I check into a hotel, the first thing I do is search for bugs. I will not stay in a room if... More

Being in the area, for a week, a Residence Inn was a good choice for lodging. This location (one of three in Ft Myers) was best for our visits to a sick family member in Ft Myers while still being able to cross the Causeway for trips to Sanibel-Captiva. A hot breakfast is available daily and a few nightly offerings... More

Great breakfast. Hot and cold options make you own waffles. Pretty pool with nice hot tub. Super staff. Helped us find place to watch a women's World Cup came. Visiting family at Shell Point. Very close. Even the pull out bed was nice. Full of families in the weekend.

We spent one night at this very clean and save Hotel. Around everything you need from food to shopping or the beach. The people were nice and very helpful. We highly recommend. Average breakfast but included in price. Comfortable rooms with all you need from fridge to microwave. Not 4 star of course but reasonable for the money.

Close to the Ft. Myers airport - on our way to Sanibel - not far away at all. Lovely rooms, bedding, and bath - loved the toiletries and soft towels! Easy drive to area restaurants and groceries. Even walked to some. The breakfast the next day was yummy, but so many people - more tables/chairs would've been nice. Would stay... More
