This is our third time here and it is still clean, comfortable and friendly. The pool is very warm like a warm bath. If you are looking for a new building this is not for you but if you like the old Florida charm this is the place. There are new bedspreads and new T.V's this year. You need to... More

This motel is in a nice location on the water, but there is much improvement needed. The rooms are okay size and convenient with kitchen, but not very clean. Gas grills are in bad shape and only got one to work (on 1 side only). Website advertises heated pool. I noticed a review on tripadvisor that said the pool was... More

I left a review of this motel with my opinion of the pros and cons of my stay there. As we all know, everyone has a different opinion and a different experience. I use TripAdvisor a lot and I hope for honest reviews, so I gave an honest review of my personal opinion of Banana Bay. That is what TripAdvisor... More

From All the Great Reviews we read about Banana Bay on T/A, I decided to call and personally inquire as to the availability & accommodations for our trip to Pt. Charlotte FL. I was immediately greeted by a very Cheerful, Friendly, Energetic person, Betty 'Boop', who quickly affirmed all of the great reviews we had read with precise answers to... More

First and foremost I am writing this review to express my gratitude to the Banana Bay staff for accommodating my husband, little one and I for the past two and half months. Our journey to Florida did not start out well. We sold our house in N.C. and the day before we had to leave our home of 28 years... More

My husband and I moved from Texas and stayed at the resort for almost a month. Great place to stay. Friendly staff. The new owner,Jo T, is wonderful. The staff went out of their way to make our stay a great one. This was our second time to stay at the resort. We would recommend this resort to anyone. Thanks... More

My review is mixed on this place. From the time I personally checked out the motel and reserved three rooms for family, to the time of our visit, the motel changed hands. So I believe the good reviews of the past may change. The pros: the motel is right on the river. You can sit and watch the beautiful sunsets... More

I stayed at this motel for 4 nights while looking at property in the area. They seems to attract extended stays. Several guests we met live at the motel. It seems many people start here while relocating to the area. This is a no frills simple clean place. The motel offers a pool and a very long dock with space... More

Very clean. Owners helpful and friendly. Most important they allowed us to bring our 2 babies....a lab and terrier. Room was spacious with kitchenette. We were able o launch our boat across the river and park it at the dock all weekend. Would recommend this place and definitely will be back! Thank you.

Wife & I had to go to Florida for some personal business / pleasure. Found this place and it was a great value. It was your typical mom & pop place. Nothing fancy. Just basics, but that's what we wanted. Right on Peace River. Great views, peaceful. Only thing we didn't like was the are pet friendly. Not my cup... More
