Yes we are the closest hotel to Florida Gulf Coast University ( FGCU ) aka Dunk City! and the closest hotel to the Airport, Regional Southwest Florida International ( RSW), with complimentary shuttle service to either one and other local attractions. Thank you very much for staying with us and also letting other parents of FGCU students know about us too! We'll see you next time! Go Eagles!

This is a very nice clean Hotel. My compliments to the HG staff. Check in was a breeze. My special accolades to Steve , who told me about a great beach. Also Jerry the bartender, great pina colada. The king size bed was very comfortable. Bedding and linens very well maintained. Everyone was was pleasant and helpful. The only problem was the water pressure in shower. But I have noticed this at other area hotels. Bottom line is if your looking for an afforadable well kept, comfortable , close to restaurants and attractions hotel, make this a first choice.

What else can you ask for....CLEAN, QUIET, COMFORTABLE, and so CLOSE to AIRPORT Everything you want in an Airport Hotel for less than $100.00. Only stayed for 6 hour sleep, update my emails with FREE WIFI, and jump on the shuttle to the Airport... I'll Be Back to this Hotel...

Next time you should stay a little longer! Hang out by the heated pool or hot tub, have a drink at the bar or something tasty in our restraunt, the Great American Grill but, if your in a hurry, we can do that too!
Thanks for staying, saying, and we hope to see you again soon!

This hotel is conveniently located to the South West International Airport, With free shuttle service to the airport as well as the Gulf Coast Town Center it is ideal for the business traveler. Great Gym, Pool and Business Center. We also stay here on weekend get a ways throughout the year. I travel the state of Florida and this property is best overall value of any Hilton Brand.

My husband and I stayed a week here the first of April, we enjoyed the hotel and all it had to offer. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. Happy hour, friendliness of the staff and Gulf Coast Town Center across the street are worth mentioning as well.
Food at hotel was ok, although, try their loaded nachos during happy hour they were......yummy!

Spent one night there last Thursday before heading for our vacation. We used the free shuttle from Ft Myers Airport and checked in easily. Room was nice and in the location that I have on my HH account. Our major problem was the bar area after settling in. My wife and I got to the bar around 9:00 PM. There is a large sign advertising a Thursday night special until 10:00 PM. When I asked for the special, I was told it ends at 9 even though the sign says 10. Then the bar person left the area and we or anyone else who came to the area could not get served for approximately 15 minutes. This part of the facility was poorly run. I also felt the cost of the hotel was high compared to other hotels we have used over the years. As I said good hotel, could be so much more.

This hotel is a rip-off. expensive rates for a basic hotel and even then it doesn't include breakfast - that will cost an extra 10 dollars and its nowhere near as good as many that include it e.g. the great embassy suites and others. Agree with other reviewers that there is a huge management attitude problem here too. the amount they charge for phone calls is immoral - i thought the days of rip off phone charges were over but we lost our credit card while staying there and they still charged 75 dollars for 2 SHORT (they called us back) international phone calls!! And they do not show the phone rates in the room - so beware, its almost like they want to catch people out. Also on check out, we knew we were leaving a day early but had not yet informed reception. a guy was trying to check in but told it was full that night. being helpful I said "oh we are just about to check out one day early" - but receptionist said "no that rooms already taken" - impossible since we hadn't yet told her. presumably he had some kind of good rate and she wanted to get a better rate. The rooms themselves have a separate sitting area but there is no natural light so very gloomy. the pool is small and very noisy - traffic. Also although you are across the street from shops and restaurants its almost impossible to get there as you have to detour to cross extremely busy multi-lane roads at distant traffic lights. the mall area is huge and some of the best restaurants are a mile away! the hotel does run a shuttle to them but its a pain. we would highly recommend you do not stay at this rip-off hotel - stay in the Marriott courtyard instead which is on the edge of the shopping/restaurant area across the road

Room Tip: stay anywhere else e.g.the marriott across the road instead

I appreciate your review of your recent stay at our hotel. I understand that the international calls and breakfast cost were of concern. We are dedicated to offering a personalized experience and try to keep costs affordable in doing so. Would posting these charges on our website or at the front desk assist you in evaluating our services? We truly value your business and would hate to lose you as our guests. I can assure you that your feedback in all aspects will be considered. We hope you'll give us another chance to serve you.
