Recommend updates. Room was clean enough but needs paint both on walls and rusty appliances. Bolt lock didn't work. Bathroom had some mold spots. Check in was easy and very helpful with area info. Ok for short stay, view from deck amazing

I was a little taken back by the need for renovation at this motel, but I have to tell you that I think it's a gem in the rough! Staff was pleasant, room was big, daily room upkeep was great, and we were ocean front! We were steps from the beach! Next time we come I hope the rooms have... More

This is a small, old Florida style motel. Down to the 2 chairs by the front door. Nothing fancy, just a clean beach side room. Go in knowing this and you won't be disappointed. If we're not renting a beach house, I actually prefer these types of motels vs fancy, schmanzy hotels that you have to trek through the lobby... More

What a great little spot, right on the best white sand beach of Ft. Myers Beach. Staff is excellent - rooms recently renovated, great pool, full kitchen - you can't beat it for the price. Very affordable. And did I mention it is directly on the beach? Great time!

This was a last minute booking, based on a previous cancellation. We had a "credit" with the Inn and booked at the last minute. The reception staff was friendly and had a sense of humor! The room was clean and had an amazing beach view and was directly on the beach! There is a clean pool at the front of... More

It all depends on what you are looking for. If you are coming to Florida to spend a lot of time in your motel room and are concerned about water spots and some rust on the outside of the refrigerator, this place is not for you. If you are coming to spend time at one of the most beautiful beaches... More

Called the number and was instantly greeted with a friendly voice. Arrived early and checked in. Not the most updated hotel, but it was quaint and clean. Room had a small kitchen that we cooked all our meals in. Pool was a bit small. It was heated, so it felt great during a cool November day. Shopping center was minutes... More

Our family really enjoyed being close to the Gulf of Mexico. The owners were friendly and the staff were helpful. We had decided to stay another night and they even left us stay in the same room. We were close to a Publix so that helped us save money instead of going out to eat all the time.
