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

The hotel looked nice from the website and had good reviews. We pulled in after dark to check in - within a few minutes of being there a fight broke out in the entryway and 3 people were arrested. After double booking our room, they "upgraded" our room to a suite. Our room smelled of stale cigarette smoke and was... More

I fell for it, I read the good reviews and saw the decent rates and figured this place couldn't be as bad as the bad reviews said. I was wrong !!! This place is a complete zoo, the rooms are old and poorly maintained. Yes the have put flatsceens in the rooms, but the AC is noisy and ancient. The... More

We ate dinner at the Lani Kai Restaurant. We had a great server named Chuck. Chuck made sure everything was perfect and we were all impressed by his knowledge of the menu and described everything so well. I actually took his suggestion and tried the red snapper and was very happy. Thank you for a great meal and fantastic service

My husband and I stayed there when we got married. Our 2 children and their families also stayed their. Rooms were clean and nice. Almost all rooms have a balcony. It is located on the beach, a short walk to downtown fort myers. Will be going back this year to celebrate. The onside restaurants are good.

I would give this hotel a 2.5 if I could. Don't get me wrong, we had fun but would not stay here again and, I suspect that most people who stay at the Lani Kai never return. First, I can't remember any hotel ever that didn't offer some kind of free coffee no matter how bad it is. Second, No... More
