If you are traveling you the Fort Myers Beach area with people you care about...this is a warning to not stay at this facility. When you first go to check in you will wait at least 40 minutes. The health inspectors would have a field day with the lack of maintenance. You're room will be stuffy, your "beach view" you... More

My three friends and I the last few years have done a girls weekend. We found this place online and it looked quite and nice for a girls get away. When we got there we had to wait 30 minutes to check in because the manager Bonnie was "too busy" to come check us in. We stood there and watched... More

We stayed there for to weeks in May 2015. All rooms are all really nice and very clean. We were lucky to have room No. 11, the little cottage with a balcony overlooking the pool and the beach; this is also a perfect place for a honeymoon! The staff (Bonnie, Heather and Lindsay) are very friendly and helpful and take... More

We read the previous reviews before booking this hotel and it seemed as if people either loved it or hated it. We are in the group that loves it. The staff was absolutely wonderful! This is not a four-star hotel but our room was clean and spacious. Everyone that we met was super nice. The pool was wonderful and the... More

My husband and I stayed at the beacon last week and it was the best vacation we have had in years. Bonnie, lindsey and heather were amazing. They went out of their way to make our week enjoyable. This is the best place on the beach hands down. The rooms are so clean and the bed was so comfortable my... More

The management was absolutely rude and disgusting. They even used profanity towards us. We had 4 moms with our 4 daughters on our spring break. They ridiculed us for having fun, degraded us and our daughters. Bonnie the manager went around telling other guest how terrible we were. Bonnie even showed another guest our daughters room, which was messy from... More

The pictures they post make the place look super nice. but let's get real it's trash, the staff is trash, the so called breakfast they give you is trash, and the people who work there are trash. The manager Bonnie needs to be let go, she calls people names and then threatens to kick you out. She is an awful... More

We stayed in this hotel with our six month old baby in one of the rooms on the ground floor. He was coughing all night because the room was very dry. We all slept terribly. The room was not clean or pleasant to stay in. And for $190/night, they tell you they don't provide shampoo "at this rate"!! For these... More

We liked our room, it was clean, we had beach view and access, parking, breakfast included, but felt very expensive! The room has a very loud AC, which I thought I would mind; turns out I was thankful for it, once I went to the bathroom, I realized how loud it is out there at night! It has a bar... More

Bonnie and her daughters do a wonderful job at the Beacon Motel. From the location, breakfast, clean rooms, and the new pool were all wonderful. What a great place. Where else can you BBQ, sit outside and talk with other travelers and enjoy the beach out your back door? It has a lot of charm.
