Booked this hotel due to its proximity to Sanibel Island. It was a great location and very close to the causeway. Several great restaurants and shops were nearby including an outlet mall across the street and a Publix next door. The hotel is a little worn, lobby and breakfast area were lovely but the elevators need new floors and the... More

Free breakfast was fine and nice bonus of appetizers and wine beer or soda before dinnertime. Staff was very friendly and nice. Location was convenient and across from outlet mall. Close to Ft Myers beach. Suites are spacious and updated. The only thing keeping this place from a 4 star is some cleanliness and updating needed in the lobby and... More

The hotel's location is convenient to the Sanibel Island causeway. However, that is the only nice thing I can say about this property. First, the hotel property maintenance is subpar. The A/C unit in our room was extremely loud and the room temperature did not reach the set temperature. Both resulted in a lack of sleep on our part. Also,... More

I'm not going to rate this location as high as I usually do (I pride myself in finding great spots to stay) but I wasn't totally unhappy either. Like others have said the hotel is priced right, the breakfast is fine, staff was friendly, and it's location is very convenient to Fort Myer Beach, Santibel, and downtown Fort Myers. My... More

Our room at this hotel was very nice with 2 full bedrooms and baths and a full kitchen and 3 tvs. Breakfast was good with new hot entrees daily. But if we had to do it again we would stay at the Marriott resort about a mile closer to Sanibel which is right on the water and has several restaurants... More

This is one of the closest hotels to Sanibel without the high prices of staying on the island- We checked in on a Sunday- there was some issues with the 4pm check in, but they made up for it with a late check out when we left. Our room was very nice- we had 2 full bed & bath rooms,... More

I stay at Residence Inn a lot. Room was great as normal. Great breakfast bar with sausage and eggs. Room numbers were very confusing 329 was at the other end of hall nowhere near 328 and 330. This could be organized better than the current version.

We have stayed at this hotel five times annually for extended periods, every December. I was slightly wary this time when I had read several of the bad reviews and was anticipating that I would have some negative issues. This worrying was completely in vain.
