“Location is great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

This was our first time here and having Sanible Causeway at near distance was great. Fort Myers Beach is a couple of minutes away. There is a gas station, grocery store and a Chinese and sub restaurant at walking distance. It is located across an outlet mall and the rooms are equipped with fridge, over the counter glass stove, dishwasher and microwave. My room had a balcony with view to the pool. Breakfast was excellent and we can't wait to go back!

Full kitchen, free hot breakfast, across from the outlet mall, clean well cared for rooms, nice comfy beds. Nice pool , hot tub, great coffee, friendly staff, nice breakfast lounge, free wi-fi, budget rates. This hotel has it all, well except for the Sanibel harbour views. If you want the views, check out the Mariott Sanibel harbour, if you want the serviceable suite with a full kitchen, then welcome home. I normally like to only stay at 5 star plus hotels, but this one has everything going for it. There are bikes here for touring the local area too. If you want to take advantage of the free breakfast, make sure to arrive before 9:30 am, as they pack it up very early.
Well done residence inn, you made my stay very memorable!

This is the second time that we celebrated our anniversary at the Residence Inn - Fort Myers.
Chelsea at the front desk remembered us immediately and made us feel right at home from the moment we walked in. This time we stayed in a two bedroom, two bath suite with 2 patios overlooking the pool. It was wonderful to walk outside to the pool and have lunch on our patio. I love this hotel and would recommend it to anyone that wants that home away from home feeling and the convenience to Sanibel Island and the surrounding beaches. Gator Bites is within walking distance and it is a fun restaurant/bar with outstanding service. Right across the street is Tanger Outlets and I buy a new bathing suit each year at Swim Mart, I'm hard to fit and they always have the latest styles. When I come home everyone wants to know where I bought my stuff. You can always tell when a hotel has a really good General Manager because the staff reflects the management. I always look for an all suite hotel when I travel, but the Residence Inn is always at the top of my list. A special thank you to Chelsea, the GM, the new DOS and the housekeeping staff. You are some of the very best!!!!!!

Let me start by saying this hotel is tired. The furniture is worn, the carpets are worn and stained, and the grout in the bathroom needs to be redone. Having said that, the front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are equipped with kitchen items and a full refrigerator, and there's a supermarket across the street. Great for snacks and drinks. The room is VERY spacious, and the bed is clean and comfortable. Love the bike rental in the lobby. Easy ride to a nearby beach. Just a short drive to Sanibel/Captiva. Typical breakfast, but there are new items each day, and it beats a doughnut and coffee. Free parking. Outlet mall across the street in case you want to do a little shopping. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: If you want a balcony, better ask for it. I didn't get one, and I'm jealous of those who did...

Green Features: Love that this hotel uses low chemical gardening and non-toxic pest control. Florida has such an abundance of natural beauty...why screw it up with chemicals you don't have to use?

We booked a 2 room suite at this hotel on our return to Miami airport for our flight home. Very well furnished suite complete with kitchen & all the necessary pieces of equipment. Shame we were only staying 1 night. Typical buffet breakfast included in price although never seen French Toast before at these type of breakfasts. All in all a good choice, free parking & restaurants on site or nearby.

A typical RI in terms of amenities (free hot breakfast, full kitchen, etc.). Weekend pricing is pretty good. Parking and Internet is free. Close to the beaches. Walking distance to a couple of restaurants. Friendly check-in. Good TV channels. Comfortable bed. Good towels. Will return for future Ft. Myers trips.
