The great things about Gondolier Apartments are that the price is very affordable and the location is three blocks off the main shopping street in Naples. The owner is super friendly, and happy to help with anything you need. The buildings and appliances are older but clean and serviceable. It was a bit like going back to my grandfather's cabin...

What a sweet spot on the middle of Old Naples, a understated gem in a city full of pretense. Just blocks from the beach, shopping and restaurants you can walk everywhere. Simple, friendly, honest and clean. Henry the owner is absolutely wonderful, and many of the other guests have been going there for many years. I am looking forward to... More

In the area of Hi-Rises, over run with Condo's and ridiculously priced hotels this was an incredible find. One story old Florida Style Motel, seems a rather harsh word to describe it. My unit was like stepping back in time. Full kitchen, living room, separate bedroom and bath, lots of closet space, and fully equipped kitchen. It was wonderful. A... More

The owner is a delightful character and tries to provide guests with many amenities. Most guests stay for extended visits and are comfortable with the old kitchy furnishings and look of the 1950's style motel. The exterior and grounds are well kept. The ground is covered with gravel that gets tracked into your unit constantly if your shoes have ridges... More

One of the best kept secrets in Naples is The Gondolier Inn on 8th Avenue South. It is a taste of Old Florida in the heart of Olde Naples, and it's a pleasant walk to the beach, 5th Avenue (restaurants and shops), Cambier Park (band concerts and art shows), and the 3rd Street Historic District (Naples Pier, Saturday Farmer's Market,...

I found the Gondolier through this site, called the owner and left a message; Henry called me back within minutes. Though he prefers longer term rentals, he worked with me and put me in a vacant unit for a few days. Liked it so much I extended my stay. What I liked has been mentioned in other reviews and is...

great location, short walk to beach and downtown & shopping. Very friendly owner operator. Rooms have retro look and are small. Made me feel like I was in Key west. Owner has beach chairs, umbrellas, books to borrow.

I loved this small old motel in Old Naples, located four blocks from the beach, and three blocks from the shops and restaurants on Old Naples’ 5th Avenue. The Gondolier was built, and has been owned and operated by the same family for 55 years. It’s located in a very nice residential neighborhood. The rooms are retro – the dining... More

Location is the winner. We parked the Car on Day 1 and didn't really need it for the 3 days that we stayed. Walking distance to the stunning Naples beaches. The owner had a trove of beach related items, Chairs, Lilo's etc. that he was more than happy to lend to us. knowledgeable and friendly owners that are very accommodating.... More

It's all about location at The Gondolier, and about old Florida tradition. The Gondolier is reminiscent of the 50's, slightly faded and appealing, set among the mansions of an upscale neighborhood. Henry Harer, the proprietor, is hands-on, happy to supply everything from beach chairs and towels to glimpses of Naples history. The property is well-maintained and within a five to... More
