The prior reviews were spot on about this place. While older, the rooms are super clean and the staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. The location is perfect with a trolley stop right outside the door. Miss motels like this that have charm. We'll be back.

King size bed, full kitchen, great pool, such friendly people.....amazing value for $79. Why would anyone stay at a hotel? Will definately be staying there again. Thank you for a great stay

I didn't know what to expect from this small hotel across from Ft Myers beach and on the bay. Beautiful sunrises over the bay from my room had me up early every morning. Sunsets over the gulf. Quiet and lovely. I'll return for sure!

Stayed here for 5 nights. Our room was small but equipped with what we needed. First thing I noticed was that the electrical cord for the air conditioner ran under the door. This allowed a good sized space under the door which let a few lizards in the room. I don't think this set up is totally up to code!... More

I had read positive reviews for Dolphin Inn before traveling to Ft. Myers Beach with my family and thought we would give this Inn a try. The prices were fair but I had no idea what we were in for during our stay. We reserved 2 nights and looking back now wish we hadn't stayed there at all!! Room number... More

I stayed for two nights in a bay room view with a queen size. The room was small but equipped with everything that you need ( from small fridge to toaster, plates and wine opener) the room was all freshly painted in white and the bed extremely comfortable. The view of the bay was very nice and quiet. Direct access... More

My partner and I visited here for one night on our way down to Key West last year. So things may be a little different now. When we first arrived were shown a room that was ok. We soon noticed a strong smell of cannabis. It was coming from the adjoining room occupied by a large family with young children.... More
