I stay at hotels 2 nights a week for over 13 yrs all over the state of FL.This hotel and staff by far make my night enjoyable. They really go out of there way to make sure you are comfortable. Alexa is GM and just a really great person.Mia is upbeat and full of spunk and at the end of a hard day she kinda give's a boost. This hotel is by far the best I have stayed at. Thank You Alexa and your team.

Room Tip: Call ahead and reserve room.This is high volume hotel and rooms sell out fast because of great locat...

We stayed here for 6 nights as we visited this area. The had a good breakfast buffet that we used each morning with plenty of variety......sometimes the buns were dangerous. Nice lounge we used in the evening.
Then our rooms were ont eh 5th floor where the self serve washer and drier were so that was convenient. The beds were comfortable and hotel very clean. Everything was well run and the staff was very pleasant. It was also easy to get to different locations like 30 min to Sanibel or 20 min to the Gold Coast Mall where we had dinner several nights and 15 min to Fleamasters.
Right off I 75 so when we left it got right on and headed north.

Room Tip: I like the 5th floor

We enjoyed having you at our facility and hope you enjoyed your near week long stay in our area. Our breakfast offers a tremendous variety, and we like to keep it that way so that those guests such as yourselves never have to feel like they have the same old hotel breakfast every day. Sounds like you had a wonderful time and we hope you return to our area soon for more activities. We look forward to our repeat customers and would love to have you back!!

Hotel was a convenient location for our needs. We had a suite which was comfortable since we needed to be there for a week. Clean room, comfortable bed, breakfast too. All the staff at the Front Desk were always helpful especially the gentleman (sorry,don't remember name) during our late night/early morning check in on Feb.11th. Special Thank you to Debbie for the help with my business needs and fax I had to send. Would stay here again, thank you.

We had out of town guests and made reservations from them here. They said the staff was wonderful and the rooms were super clean. I would recommend this hotel to anyone as it is located in a central area.

I was instantly welcomed as a good friend instead of just another customer. The people at the front desk already had a smile on their face when I walked in the door. From then on it was as if the place was mine. A home away from home. I felt comfortable and was treated absolutely great. Outstanding experience!

Thank you for making our hotel your home away from home. We try to make sure our facility is as accommodating as possible because we do know how hard it is to have to travel and be away from friends and family. It really means a lot to have a guest say how our staff was able to make them feel as if this truly was a homey environment. We do appreciate all feedback and are looking forward to your return for our next reunion!!!! Spring Training is just around the corner and we would love to have you back in time to see a baseball game.

The staff was very pleasant to work with and helpful. Microwave and fridge in rooms. Nice pool. Great breakfast. There's a Starbucks across the street. And shopping, Target,Ross, Home Depot. The downside is the lack of food establishments. The tv could have been bigger, but thats minor.
Great place to relax and sleep.
