The staff was amazing. The grounds were beautiful. Very nice pool. Disappointed that the motel was so far from the beach and beach access points. Very close to shopping and restaurants. It is an older motel and the AC/Heater was very loud. Had to unplug it as it still made noise in the off position. We had a couple of... More

We stayed in for a couple of nights while on our trip through Florida. All ladies there were very friendly, room was very nice & clean. We din't book it in advance just walked in when we were driving past. The area surrounding the appartments was beautiful. Can't find one negative thing to say. Would definitely recommend this place.

Had the stand-alone cottage with king size sleep number bed. Very large clean room, new laminate floors shiny and clean. Small fridge, sink, microwave, silverware, corkscrew and wine glasses. In the back was like being in a nature preserve. Really nice staff. On call after 8PM. But beware, world's smallest bathroom (with a really nice shower, however). Could have used... More

Stayed here last year and I NEED TO COME BACK SOON! Unbelievable get-a-way... great staff, great rooms, great grounds, hammocks, kayaks, flowers, bbque grills, and tranquility... complimentary wine was wonderful while enjoying the art gallery. I can't say enough about this place except that I will be back soon!

Awesome staff! They had delicious cupcakes in the Office :) Wonderful amenities; kids loved the pool and we enjoyed sitting by the river. It was very peaceful and relaxing, yet very close to shopping and restaurants. We will definitely come back here and highly recommend the Kona Kai Motel!

My wife and I stayed here last weekend and had a marvelous time. The motel staff was cordial, helpful and always willing to take time to answer our questions, make recommendations and offer directions. We recommend the Island Cow restaurant for breakfast (walking distance), George and Wendy's for lunch (1.5 miles) and the Fish House for a casual dinner (right... More

Check in was easy and quick. I had booked a suite and it was spacious with the living area, kitchen area and bedroom. The seating area in the living area was not comfortable; although spacious, it was banquette style and the cushions over the boards was not enough...it was quite hard and uncomfortable. There is no maid service, so you... More

My husband surprised me for our 15th anniversary with a trip to Kona Kai motel in Sanibel Island. The room was perfect. The kitchen was cute and quaint. The bed was really comfortable. We rented bike and rode them everywhere. This motel was close to all of the restaurants. The beach was minutes away.
