Hotel is located on the waterfront of Charlotte Harbor. It is adjacent to a large city park and is on the "river walk," and an easy walk to Fisherman's Wharf. Staff is friendly and very accommodating.

Good hotel with pleasant surroundings, clean, friendly helpful staff but it needs money spending on it in the near future, although we would go back again. The park outside is very good and a walk around the village and out to the pier is worth doing.

This is an excellent hotel. It's very clean with nice, updated rooms. Great views and there is a wonderful city park just outside of the hotel. This city is a little hidden gem. I'll definitely be staying here again in the future.

A nice room for the single night we were in town; fun colors, and the receptionist had a sense of humor: she gave us a Room with a View of the parking lot, and our choice of floors. Renovations are in progress, and the elevator carpet is totally trashed. Enjoyed the pool and the "eggs" at breakfast. No receipt if... More

This hotel has a fabulous location right on Charlotte Harbor in downtown Punta Gorda. The property itself leaves something to be desired. Has a tough time finding the "lobby"...you know, the area where you check in! Signage and other element are either confusing or missing, and I saw several other travelers mistaking one entrance for another. The property seems to... More

I stayed two nights for business last week and the lobby area is really tired, old and unappealing. I was not at all sure I was going to be happy with the room. The hotel is being renovated, and I was promised a renovated room. The elevator is not clean, really beat up and obviously used for construction purposes. But... More

The Punta Gorda Waterfront hotel is on the water. There is a very nice dock. Of course the hotel is older property but still very nice. What really makes the stay is great staff. Everyone was just wonderful. My cousin is a fireman in the county, and said the PG Waterfront was a nice place to stay. It is. We... More
