Rock Lake Resort harkens back to an earlier time. Our sixth stay in th last 12 years, and we love it. Kid friendly. Fed fish and turtles, swam in the pool, played tennis and pingpong, canoed out Chief Bowlegs Creek to the river and had real dolphins swimming and surfacing alongside, hiked the nature trail with my five-year-old to see...

We travel often and generally find that most of our stays are good, some better than others. However, this place was the most miserable night we have spent anywhere. The mattress was like sleeping on a pillow, way too soft, so we ended up sleeping on the floor. The overhead light glared like you were caught in headlights. The shower... More

We recently spent 5 nights (March, 2014) at RLR. In a year's time if you asked me where we stayed in Ft. Myers I bet I won't remember. Why? Because there's nothing terribly wonderful or disastrous about it. Yes, the sound of the water/dolphins is relaxing. Everyone seems to use/enjoy their patios that surround the little lake, esp. for coffee... More

This travel court style hotel would receive 5+++ if it was closer to beaches and not as close to run down area. Wonderful, caring employees and the hotel was a delightful blast of the past. Beds very comfortable.

We stayed at the Rock Lake Resort (RLR) because of the great reviews and price of the stay. When we got there it looked nothing like the photo, the place is pretty run down and if you are not paying attention you will drive past their little office. We did not rent one of their cottages but instead we renting... More

I came during peak season so I over paid for the room. Moreover, I was disappointed when I book the room because, I thought I was getting a room next to the man made lagoon. My room was very clean, comfortable, however, outdated. The lady at the desk was very sweet and professional. It was better than staying at any... More

Been staying here since January from Ohio and the rates are great for high season. I use a wheelchair so I got #16 which is wheelchair friendly. The bath is very large with grab bars in tub and by toilet. Not a roll-in shower if you need that though. Never had any sewer smells. I have enjoyed watching the fish... More

...before you book this motel and especially if you have a baby/small kid. The smell of Chlor is terrible and if you plan to share the bed with your kid just forget it as it is too small. Besides that, the furniture are too old with broken parts - avoid rooms 20-22 as the noise from the street is really... More

We stayed for one night and it was raining so we didn't get to enjoy walking around the lake, but we did enjoy it from our covered patio. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and bathroom were clean and welcoming. The office is across the street (one way) and not easy to get to if you... More

Many years ago when my grandparents traveled by car to Florida from Maine, they would stay at "motor courts". This little gem is exactly that, and was built in 1947, which makes it an official Senior Citizen by American standards. It is important to remember that when this motor court was built, Palm Beach Boulevard was narrow and ran in... More
