“Nice Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

We stayed in this hotel for six nights. The hotel was clean, and the house-keeping service was amazing. We stayed with a small dog, every day we requested early housekeeping and it was great. We had a balcony it was great however there were a lot of mosquito's and it was not enjoyable. The pool and hot tub is very clean.Overall nice and friendly hotell

Arrived on Sunday and just left today. What a lovely time at this lovely place. Room was tastefully decorated and comfortable for four (two adults, two children), overlooking the pool from our balcony. Towels are provided for the pool and also they gladly provided them for our trip to the beach at Captiva Island where we spent an entire day. Good breakfast choices, clean area, staff always on hand to replenish food items. Was a bit surprised that according to person at front desk Marriott would provide three bath towels for four people - but he gladly provided another towel when requested. Ice was provided at our departure to keep our food from spoiling on the ride. Thank you. Looking forward to my next visit.

Room Tip: Higher floors always better.

We were perfectly satisfied with our 2 night weekend stay. At about $260 all-in a great value at a popular Florida destination. The suite is updated and comfortable; excellent housekeeping services. The hotel has a very good location for visiting Sanibel Island or Fort Myers beach. One rainy afternoon we went across the street for a couple hours and shopped at the brand outlet shops. I have high expectations for a Marriott family hotel, so I would say within the average range for Marriott. The breakfast is included and it is convenient, average buffet set up.

This was our second stay at this trendy decorated hotel ,we once again had a suite as there was four adults and two lovely double bedrooms ,a great kitchen with absolutely everything ,full fridge ,dishwasher ,coffee machine and coffee satchets. The pool and hot tub is lovely ,pool area is very clean . There is plenty of choice for breakfast ,but get there on time as they clear it all away dead on time .There is a gym for those who need to exercise. The whole hotel is very clean and airy and brightly decorated .The staff are all very friendly and helpful.Would not hesitate to stay here again on my next visit to Florida.

From the moment we entered this lovely suite, I was disappointed that we were only staying one night. The rooms are beautifully furnished and it's nice having a kitchen. Our room also had a nice balcony overlooking the pool. The included breakfast was good with biscuits and gravy, eggs and waffles along with cereal, yogurt and fruit. It is right at the foot of the bridge to Sanibel / Captiva. If you are looking to spend some time in Sanibel, this is a nice option to save some money (I got a great deal on Priceline) and be comfortable. There is free wi-fi, or there are several computers in the lobby for guest use. There is a Publix right next door if you would like to get groceries or at least beverages for an extended stay. The Outlet Mall is across the street although we did not not go there.

What a great find! We would have loved to stay longer. The suite was fabulous -- including a full kitchen (with an oven). The pool and hot tub were lovely. The breakfasts were exceptional -- best we have had anywhere! The hotel even offers a free dinner/snack three nights a week. Everything was clean and the staff was very helpful and friendly. We will come again!

Manager and employees all very polite but I do not think we'd return. Upon arriving we were given a handicap room and we're not sure why. The room, while spacious and decorated beautifully, was a little dirty. There was food on the floor under my bedside table (maid did not move furniture to vacuum obviously) and the trash from a deoderant stick was stuck to the bathroom vanity wall. (I'll upload a picture). Breakfast on weekday mornings was leisurely and enjoyable. Breakfast on weekend mornings was a crowded nightmare with lines to get any food, grown men fighting over the waffle maker, and no where to sit. (I'll upload another picture) The hotel had free wifi which was complete garbage. Our devices constantly told us our connection was unstable and the Internet would not stream anything. True, we weren't staying here for Internet but it made trying to research restaurants and beaches a real pain. Ask for a top floor if you can. We stayed on the first floor and we heard EVERY noise above us. Some nights we couldn't sleep due to how loud the family was above us. Last night, there was literally screaming. We almost called the lobby just to make sure no one had been murdered. All that out of the way, desk employees were very friendly and very helpful.

Dear Valued Guest.....first allow me to thank you for taking time to post your thoughts on your recent visit.

I am truly sorry that you experienced levels of service that were not up to the standards of Marriott and certainly not what we are used to providing at the property level.

We did have a full house due to a big baseball/basketball tournament in town during the time you were here and we are aware that breakfast gets crowded in sold out situations. I would also like to add that last week we completed our wi-fi upgrades throughout the entire building.

I hope you can accept my sincerest apologies and rest assured, that your concerns will be addressed and we definitely take your words and concerns very seriosly. I hope that we can earn your confidence again, should you allow us the opportunity to welcome you back should your travels bring you to SW Florida, again.

Yours in hospitality,
Pam Miller
General Manager
