Great location, just steps from the beach and within walking distance of town center. Hotel has beach chairs you can use which is a plus for travels who cannot bring their own. Rooms do not have coffee makers, coffee is provided right outside of pool near front office starting at 8am. Rooms are older but very clean. Wi-Fi is available... More

Clean, clean, clean! Owner is outstanding and accommodating. Step back in time to this great motel and enjoy. We stayed in the two bedroom unit with private balcony and view of the gulf. These folks know what they're doing. They even have beach towels to use incase you forgot yours. We will be back.

I have been going to this hotel for over 13 years. It is by far my favorite vacation spot, not just because I love Fort Myers, but because this hotel is a gem. Sheryll manages this place wonderfully. The cleaning crew is immaculate and always friendly. The hotel is such a short walk to the beach, and right across the... More

This is a clean, comfortable, family owned, old Florida style hotel. It is just a few steps from the beach and easy walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. A great family hotel. I highly recommend it.

We wanted to find a hotel early so we could see some of the sites and just called this hotel and reserved a room. When we got there at first site I was a little disappointed at first. When we actually talked to the owners and got in our rooms we were pleasantly surprised!! It was an older hotel but... More

Cheryl and Walt run a wonderful inn just steps from the beach. Had a wonderful time staying here. Reserved parking space for each room, immaculately clean, friendly staff, very comfortable beds, reasonably priced, and room amenities were just what we needed. Our stay could not have been any better. Will be happy to return soon!

The room was small, but big enough for sleeping! The AC worked well and the shower had hot water! The Inn provider beach chairs and beach towels! The Inn is conveniently located close to the beach and local amenities! We had our own parking space. Every room is pool side, but it is small!

Lovely hotel, stayed for 3 nights. Very clean and comfortable and just a short stroll to the beach. Choice of restaurants are about a mile away, nice to walk along the beach to or pick up the trolley bus which stops outside. Great pool and the owners are lovely.

Stayed here one night last summer and had an easy check in. The room was very nice and appeared to have just recently been remodeled with a new large fridge, microwave and large flat screen tv. The bath was retro, but very clean and functioned well. They offer chairs and beach amenities, but it rained the entire day we were... More

Extremely clean and neat place where you walk back past one or two other small places to the beach. The owners are retired folks from up north; very nice. The rooms surround a small pool and there are tables and chairs outside.
