At least our fifth stay, and not disappointed; the hotel was at capacity but the good spirit of all who work there made it another enjoyable weekend. Cheryl at the front desk remembered us from previous visits, and along with others on the team was eager to make it a positive experience. Our queen bed suite allowed for plenty of... More

We stayed at this property twice last year and were excited at the opportunity to return to the area, this time for a 4-night stay. We were attending a sporting event, so we left early and arrived late each day, but we still were able to enjoy ALL this hotel has to offer. The rooms are very spacious and well-appointed.... More

Residence Inns are usually a great choice when you want a larger suite and a kitchen so I was a little disappointed that the living and dining area in the 2 queen 1 bedroom suite was on the small side and that the kitchen did not have an oven like other residence inns. On the other hand, the location of... More

Stayed here with my family in late June. We were very impressed with this property, particularly the staff, decor, location, and pool area. Hotel is in a quiet area of Fort Myers across from the Tanger Outlet Mall. Location is convenient, as there is a 7/11 and Publix next door. It is a very easy drive to Fort Myers Beach... More

Reserved through Hotwire and got a very pleasant surprise. From the outside the hotel looks a bit boring, but looks deceive. On the inside it was fresh and modern. Very pleasant and friendly staff and our "room" was a large one bedroom suite with nice, modern decor. Poolarea was also neat and modern with a cabana with toilets and shower.... More

Our second stay at this property in the last 2 years, as it's VERY convenient to Sanibel and located in a nice quieter section of Ft. Myers. Rooms are RI-typical.. lots of space, full kitchen, plenty of room for the family (recommend a room with balcony for a little extra breathing space). Property is neat and clean, staff was fine......

I wish I could give a 3.5 rating. The hotel is better than average but not very good. We booked the room at a great price that we found using travelzoo. The hotel location is a 5/5. It is located right before the Sanibel causeway. My husband and I went to 6 local beaches in our week stay and all... More
