The hotel was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed there multiple times and said how wonderful it was. It is a great hotel for the location. The hotel is old, but they did update some things with it. It looks like the tile floors are new and the bathroom was redone. I did have some difficulty getting... More

I have been staying at Banana Bay for nearly 3 months, and I absolutely love it here! I would recommend this small resort to anyone who loves being on the water without the commotion and distraction of a typical tourist location. The owner Anand and his mom are so gracious and helpful...always! The grounds are very cute and well manicured.... More

I thought this place would be the perfect place to stay and does have weekly rent which is even better. Yes they accept dogs, even better but their rooms have cobwebs and are dusting and not kept cleaned. Always had to ask for stuff because noone checks on you. The manager is nasty and judgemental along with the owner son... More

Where the good reviews come from is a mystery. We were looking for a place we could do self-catering. The recent renovations and kitchenettes seemed ideal. In fact the renos are limited, they didn't extend to the bathroom door that didn't close, or the historic (2) kitchen chairs, on castors with cracked plastic seats or the feeble water pressure in...

Great view of the harbor, nice clean rooms, great staff! I really love it here! The view is amazing! Restaurants close by, mini put put golf next door! My very first morning here I walked out on the dock and seen a dolphin playing in the water!

I've staying at Banana Bay for almost two months, and I highly recommend the locale to everyone. The Manager/Owner Anand and his mother are extremely pleasant and very accomodating. Always friendly and eager to please! We have small dogs and are pleased at how pet friendly it is. Gorgeous view, directly on the bay with a great pier. Rooms are... More

Banana Bay, is absolutely beautiful. The management is beyond understand and will work with you under any circumstance. The view is amazing, and they accommodate to any and all of your needs. The rooms are up to date with flat screens, Wi-Fi and brand new AC's. I couldn't have stayed at a better place (:

I was visiting Port Charlotte this week and needed a room to rent for a couple of weeks. I paid for my room in advance each week. A few days into my second week the manager came to me and said I had not paid for the current week. I showed him the receipt but he still questioned my payment... More

I came for business and my husband came for fun. Such a charming hotel. Newly remodeled kingsize waterfront room with a kitchenette was our home for 2 nights. Fishing off the 500 ft private pier kept my husband busy. The owners were super nice! Very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. Was a taste of old Florida without the... More

We stayed just for one night. They are renovating the rooms so we understand that our small room still needs some TLC but the location couldn't be better!! The owner and her son are amazing people: friendly, ready to help you. Notice the towels were not in good shape and they change in a minute with a lot of apologies.... More
