My wife and I were delightfully impressed with this motel. We were looking for a cheap place to stay near Sanibel and stumbled across this place. I'll do pros and cons here. Pros: very warm and helpful staff (I think it was the owner, he even remembered my name the following day), nice and clean rooms with tidy and new... More

I called the day before we needed a place to stay, as our travel plans changed quickly. The owner was so accommodating and helpful. We booked the room and then as fate would have it, something came up and we could not travel to that part of Florida after all! I did not want to call and cancel, as I... More

I found this great place by accident (but I'm so glad I did)! Hotels.com messed up my reservation at another hotel that was actually full on the date I needed to stay. So.. They booked a room for me at Tip Top Isles at the last minute. It was easy to find and The customer service was great! In fact,... More

After researching several options to rent a boat, Tip Top Marina got us with their "lost leader". The signs at the road indicated boats for rent for $99. After talking with the Manager, I believe his name was Jimmy we decided against the $99 boat as we wanted music etc. We ended up spending $175 and it was worth every... More

Good bare bones motel close to Ft Meyers Beach. The fellow who checked us in ... recommended The Beached Whale... and we had a blast there and the food was fantastic. Room was clean, good shower...little tiny TV but good reception

No frills, but it was close enough to hop a trolley to the beach, and the staff was friendly. We were in tone for a spring training game and this was a nice halfway point between Hammond stadium and Ft. Meyers beach. The room could have been cleaner though...bare feet on the tile floor left us all with gritty, black... More

In the bustle of Fort Myers Beach,this was a really quite hotel. Close to the beaches, but far away from the drunk spring breakers, this place was the perfect compromise. The beds were comfy, the room larger than I expected and very clean. I was very relaxed and slept soundly. Also great if you plan on using the Key West... More

Exactly what you would expect from a low cost hotel. Price was right and was very close to beaches. It worked good for us as we only needed a place to rest our heads for a few hours. Kenny at the desk was very friendly and knowledgeable. Hotel bathroom was bright and clean. Floor was swept but made our feet... More
