We needed to get away for the weekend, this hotel was perfect. It is not fancy at all which we really didn't care about. It was clean and the room was very big, the furniture is old but who wants to be in a room when you have the beach as your backyard? They have a really nice seating area... More

Okay, I admit that my first impression wasn't so good. We had one of the rooms at the 1. floor and at least the bathroom needs an upgrade, but it was clean. A bigger bed in this room would be nice, since there is enough space. But we looked at the big room at the second floor and this is... More

Perfect place for a beach holiday. We are getting married next year on the beach and looking for places for our guests to stay. This is it! Right on the beach, newly renovated. Hosts were friendly and attentive-they walked us thru 3 different rooms. Very clean. Incredible views. So impressed!

When you go to Fort Myers beach, you need to check out this spot. We have stayed there many time and have the best hosts-Heidi and Brusier. They will keep you entertained your whole visit. Right on the beach, very clean rooms and the best Hospitality you could ask for.

My husband and I stayed here in September 2014 for a great week away while we celebrated our 228th wedding anniversary. We were able to bring both of our dogs with us without paying a outrageous price. We stayed on the first floor all we had to do is walk out the door and within a few steps we were... More

What a magical place! We had our wedding there 6/7/14. Heidi and Bruiser were so great at accommodating and helping. We had the immediate family staying there as well and everyone loved it!! They have great spaces and opened up the entire place for us. Highly recommend for a wedding, family reunion, friend reunion, or any getaway with a larger... More

My husband and I had a first floor room for a week in July. It was exactly what I'd imagine living on the beach to be like. We brought our two dogs with us, which was very nice as it can be difficult finding hotels that allow pets. The managers were very friendly and always willing to be of service.... More

I was looking for a place to completely relax during Memorial weekend. Didn't want to go up and down elevators, stairs with the kids dragging the luggage, the dog, etc. etc. This place is directly on the beach, steps from the ocean. This is a two story building and our room was on the first floor, as soon as you... More
