On the plus side…very clean, quiet, prettily landscaped, clean pool, attentive staff, charming vintage feel, low price for Marco. On the minus side…older property, no on site staff at night, doors open directly to the outdoors - this can be a concern for some single travelers. Our fellow guests were friendly and quiet at night. We'd stay again for a... More

We stayed here with three kids and two adults when we visited friends on the Island. The hotel is friendly and cozy. The service was good and you could borrow sun chairs and beach towels. For a short stay on the Island its a perfect hotel

This is a little gem of a hotel! My husband and I were passing through Marco Island and needed a place to stay on the spur of the moment. We didn't want anything expensive or too resort-y because were were only going to stay overnight and leave early the next day. We sat down in a bar that offered free... More

We were disappointed that our room was not ready when we arrived, especially because although our rental was for a week, we were only able to stay 4 nights, and we arrived 2 days after the rental began. We were there on business as well as for some R&R. We needed to spend 2 nights in one room and two... More

The place is very nice and it has a lot of facilities, making your stay nicer. Maybe it could use some improvement on the housecleaning, even though it might have been some rare mistake, as we stood two days, out of which we were disappointing with housecleaning the first, but everything was just great in the second. Anyway, a very... More

Fantastic stay, rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff are approachable and friendly. Towels,beach chairs and umbrellas are available free of charge. The setting on the lake is lovely with lots of wildlife to watch. Our only minor complaint is the swimming pool pump is on 24/7 and can ruin the otherwise tranquil setting, but you get used to it.
