“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

Very convenient hotel to Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel (closest Marriott to the Sanibel bridge, I think). Great breakfast and lots of good options nearby for other meals. The grounds are very well manicured and great for sitting out at night. There is a great bar across the parking lot -- Gator Bites. Great food, fast, friendly service, and an outdoor area. This hotel is a great option for convenience to Sanibel and Fort Myers.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a balcony

We were visiting the Ft. Myers/Sanibel Island area and this hotel had everything we were looking for: location, balconies, breakfast and close proximity to Sanibel/Captiva islands. My husband and I as well as our daughter and grandkids were visiting the area and use this hotel as our home base and we have to admit this hotel had it all - the suites were compact but I never felt cramped, our balcony overlooked the pool (ask for that at the front desk) and, in the distance, was the Gulf as well as the causeway to Sanibel Island which was a nice 'perk'. Breakfast was terrific with a lot of selections and plenty of room for everyone, the front desk staff were very informative and told us 3 great restaurants (which we tried) which were all terrific. All in all, I would definitely return to this hotel as well as the area, in general!

We were delighted with this property for several reasons. The one bedroom suite was just perfect for my husband and myself. It was great to find that it was just across the causeway to Sanibel where we went to the beach to relax. The staff was most willing to help to make the guests comfortable of possible. There is an excellent buffet style breakfast each morning that is better than most hotels. Although the hotel was completely full, it was still generally quiet and not crowded feeling. The staff at the front desk is very willing to make suggestions for restaurants(which were all good). They even offered us the use of beach chairs and shelling equipment. That made our outings special and we so appreciated all of the efforts from the staff to make every thing as we would like. Great place to spend some time! The presence of a very professional manager seems to be a very good influence on the overall smoothe functioning of the hotel. We hope to return to this hotel.

Made a last minute reservation when we realized we would not be able to get to a friend's home in Naples FL before too late. We were warmly greeted by the front desk personnel (two lovely ladies) with warm chocolate chip cookies and immediately given our room keys and very good as ice on dinner. The room was very quiet, well appointed and comfortable. The dinner recommendation was also very good and within walking distance. Definitely will stay here again when in the area.

We spent 2 nights at the Sanibel Residence Inn. The first was the evening before our early morning departure on the Key West Express and the second was upon our late-evening return 2 days later. Where do I start? We were soooo impressed! The location was great. Right on the entry to Sanibel Island, across the street from an outlet mall, next to a Publix Grocery store and a casual restaurant. Our suite was beautiful - large living room/kitchen and 1 bedroom with 2 queen beds with a balcony overlooking the pool/hot tub/basketball court. We had our bicycles and asked if we could leave them stored while we were in Key West. Of course! We noticed there was a bike path that went right by the hotel. When we asked about eating dinner, the desk made reservations for us at the Lighthouse Restaurant right down the street. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The free breakfast buffet was amazing. Lots of tables in a large, sunlit, attractive area. Eggs, potato and sausage mix, waffles, fresh cut fruit, and other things you would normally have, but with extras such as French Vanilla cream for coffee as well as 2 other choices, nuts for waffles, hot chocolate, choice of 2 different syrups, several muffin choices that were not pre-packaged, etc. Several times, someone came to our table to take dirty plates and ask if we wanted more coffee! We noticed dinner was also offered a couple nights each week in the breakfast area. Check-out time was not until 12:00 noon, so we spent a delightful morning lounging by the pool before we left. I can't say enough good things about our stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in a room with a balcony overlooking the pool - loved it.

This is our fourth stay at this hotel - we couldn't be happier.
Since we need a handicapped room, everything was perfect, especially the walk- in shower.

The front desk staff were very pleasant, especially Cheryl and Tim??
I mustn't forget the breakfast staff, especially Shannon and Rita.
Shannon always greeted guests with a smile and a "good morning":
Overall, we had a very pleasant stay every winter, and look forward to future stays.

This was our second visit to the Residence Inn at Ft. Myers-Sanibel but it will not be our last. We stayed for three weeks and loved it. The accommodations are very comfortable, the amenities are excellent, and the staff is just terrific, friendly, pleasant, proactive, and responsive. The value is excellent. It's the staff that brings it all together. The best example is a woman who works the breakfast area. Her name is Shannon and she was welcoming, solicitous, helpful, very hard working, and seemed to genuinely enjoy her job and her guests. The Fitness Room is excellent, as are the pool and whirlpool. The only real complaint we had, and it is more of an annoyance than anything else, was the selection of television channels. It was limited and did not include PBS or MSNBC and the only movie channel was HBO. But that was minor. This is a great hotel for families, people traveling with pets as we were, and couples. It's also located within easy access to Sanibel-Captiva Islands and Ft. Myers Beach. If you get a chance, stay there!

Room Tip: There are no bad rooms.
