I just returned from the Lani Kai two days and let me start off by saying I had read reviews prior so I knew what I was getting into. Having only planned this trip a month in advance and not wanting to spend $300 or $400 a night, this was pretty much the only option and honestly, I still feel... More

Where should I begin? The horrific vomit smell as you enter the resort? The filthy bathrooms? Oh wait, how about the stream of bugs crawling around on the nightstand and end table? Upon noticing the bugs, we quickly lifted up the mattress to find BUG TRAPS!?! While I packed up and gathered our children, my husband spoke to the manager... More

If you are looking for a sterile, predictable “cookie cutter” Holiday Inn-style hotel, the LANI KAI at Fort Myers Beach AIN’T IT!!! However, if you want a very charming, unique, medium-size (80+ rooms) Hawaiian-themed hotel-resort with beautiful Hawaiian murals and vibrant colors everywhere, inside and out, you just might love the LANI KAI as much as we do. My husband... More

Horrible experience. The view from the hotel is actually lovely. The remainder is horrible. Hotel itself is old and dated. Hotel not worried about being clean. Wifi is limited to lobby area only and you'd better bring your own portable device. Parking is horrific. Don't ever leave the spot, once you do they sell your spot to anyone who wants... More

First of all to the locals around ft.myers this place is known to be the worst hotel on the beach. I am younger and can party with the beat of them but even I was overwhelmed by it all for the fact I couldn't get good rest here. We stayed Friday and Saturday night and from the moment we got...

WORST HOTEL EVER! We had problems from the very start. First, upon arrival we discovered we only had electricity in half the room. A call was made to the desk and a maintenance person was sent to try and fix the problem. He was unable to fix it and we were told that they needed to come back the next... More

After hearing the horror stories of this place, I was skeptical, but I was curious to see what it was like and I couldn't beat the price for an ocean front room. I was very happy with my stay here. The room had clearly been renovated since past reviews because everything was very clean and modern-tile floors, new bathroom, and... More

We have just had 3 nights at this hotel. It is one of the biggest and busiest especially during spring break ! We had a room on the 3rd floor which gave us the most amazing view of the beach the party scene. We did not realise that most of the spring break party goers where here,however, it was great... More

Perhaps available rooms in the high season should have tipped me off, but ratings weren't that bad. The hotel was full of spring breakers and the unfortunate souls who booked the hotel as well. The room was dirty and outdated - but the sheets were clean / yeah? The beach is beautiful and right out the back door - but... More
