We arrived on Friday to stay 7 nights. We mentioned Kelly had saved us a special room dur to my husbands medical condition was told she no longer worked there. They did look and found where she had put a hold on it. Room was nice. View was great but here is what happens. Every morning at 7:30 they have... More

Beautiful view but the roof top area is in need of some repair and we waited almost 1 hour 45 minutes to order and eat. We were hoping to watch the sunset on the beach and instead waited to pay our Bill. Good for a party crowd but not a family

My husband and I stayed for four nights. Upon check in the front desk was not very cordial. We arrived at 1:30 and was told we couldn't get our room until 3:00. We were supposed to have a king room but ended up with 2 full size beds. The beach view from the room was great. The room was clean... More

We did not stay at the Lani Kai but we spent the day on the beach here at the recommendation of friends. The building itself is kind of a comical looking 1960's tourist trap, throwback and is very gaudy. I was a bit reluctant when we pulled into the parking lot and a somewhat frightening character with a cigarette hanging... More

This is about the BEST hotel for beach location! The hotel is older but adequate. They can charge high prices because of where they are. Special thanks to JOHN, KAREN AND CRYSTAL for their friendly service! We stayed 8 days over March Break and had no problems. There was good security and control. Of course if you choose to go...

Four of us stayed at a room here during spring break. The hotel is aging, but it was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the shower was great. If you have kids & any modesty whatsoever, don't stay here. If you like to party, this is your place! The atmosphere is pretty low key, so if you're high maintenance, go... More

We spent one night at the Lani Kai Island Resort Hotel during spring break timeframe before flying out of the airport. It was a decent price for being right on the beach and in the middle of Ft Myers Beach; we also made a spur of the moment reservation. Our room had been redone recently, beds okay, new couch and...

The hotel is in physically poor condition, while some minor upgrades have been made to the rooms, they are still dated. The AC in my room barely functioned and was quite noisy. The public areas are in horrible shape, the paint is peeling off the walls, the elevators are frequently broken. Any of the enclosed areas smell strongly of mold,... More

A defective door kept us out of our room for over two hours at 1 AM. Rather than comp our group for having us out on the curb in the middle of the night, we were forced to move into another room at no discount. The assistant manager, Brad, told us "S**t happens" and that we could talk to the... More

Their website is such a lie. Instead of Bellhops, there's ex-convicts standing in the drop off area wearing cargo shorts and red t-shirts with "STAFF" across the front that yell at you if you look at them wrong. They also walk around the property and tell you what you can't do, even if you're not breaking any rules.They sell the... More
