“Great staycation vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Great experience from the start. When we called Larry was helpful and bent over backwards to accommodate us. It was our 5th anniversary and we needed a "staycation" and found it at Legacy Harbour Hotel. Tinnete checked us in and made sure we had everything we needed.
Suite was clean, had a coffee pot, fridge, large closet and excellent view of harbor. Our room was extra large, walking distance to downtown, lots of restaurants and even walking distance to the Edison home. Friday night they opened the Tiki bar for beer and wine. We can't wait to go back again and see Larry, Tinnete and Jamie !!!!

Room Tip: Ask for a waterview room.

We wanted an inexpensive, but nice place to stay down the coast a bit from our home for a weekend escape. We found it in the Legacy Harbor Hotel - the staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms basic but clean, with a great view off the sizable back deck where we enjoyed evening cocktails and morning breakfast (served off the lobby - but we opted for the deck). Plus, a five minute walk to all the downtown restaurants and shops - we'll do it again!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the marina

We stayed in a room not on the water. Very clean, floors are not carpeted, bed was a little hard. We were there for a party so rather than drive home we stayed the night. Our friends stayed too. Their room was on the water, big patio, AWSOME view of marina. The pool is nice size, but the walls make it feel closed in.they offered us breakfast in the morning, but we left.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are on the water.

Let's start with the fact that these people are charging $190 a night for what amounts to an $89 room. From there, add to the fact that there is NO phone in the room (really?), NO coffee table in front of the TV, a mini coffee maker even though it's a suite, NO drain plug (only a rubber stopper) in the bath (God forbid you should lose a ring), and NO elevators (don't bring anything more than a carry on if you're on the second floor).

Add to that the fact that I complained that my A/C wasn't working and they never fixed it. AND, as the bow on the entire sorry package, the fact that the entire parking lot was SHUT DOWN for my entire stay and there was not even an offer of remuneration. And finally, there are no amenities, whatsoever. Oh, sorry, they have a pool, other than that, nothing.

Frankly, the place is clean and the staff is nice, But do not charge me $190 a night (over $600 for a 3 night stay) for a place that is FAR less valuable than any Embassy Suites. Yes, it's on the water, but I will be happy to pay for a cab and save $100 a night. I will not be back. $ for $, this place SUCKS.

Room Tip: Choose another hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Your comments are valuable and will help us in our continuous efforts to maintain and improve the service and property. I am sorry to hear your stay with us was not to your standards. We were never informed of your concerns till the time wrote this review before your check out. Per our verbal conversations and emails we did try and notify all guests of the parking lot re pavement. We have a large property and have several parking lots. All guests were advised to park in the marina lot during their stay for 3 days. The marina parking lot is 30 feet away. We did offer you compensation for this inconvenience at the time of your departure which was applied immediately. Regarding your concern with price, we do our best to stay in line with our competitors, the different seasons and what our property offers. We do offer different room types that have different price points to try and accommodate a range of guests needs. We do not have coffee tables in our suites, if a guest needs anything extra to make their stay more enjoyable please see the front desk and we will do our best to assist you with any of your needs. Since your visit we have replaced all the drain systems in all the tubs. We no longer have the older stoppers. All of our suites have large coffee makers and our standard rooms have the mini coffee makers. We do have extra large coffee makers upon request for the standard room guest. We also do not provide phones in the hotel rooms to keep them as clean and sanitized as possible. If a guest needs a phone we provide a complimentary cell phone for our guest to use during their stay with us (local and international). Please see the front desk for these. Thank you for stating that you were happy with our cleanliness and staff service. We are striving to make our property the best it can be. Again I apologize for any inconvenience you encountered during your stay. Please advise other guest to let us know as soon as possible if they are not satisfied with something so we may have the opportunities to fix any problems.Thank you for your stay with us.

Welcoming staff, great space with a lovely view of the harbor. Continental breakfast and area very accommodating for all ages. We had two suites housing 3 adults and 4 kiddos, 1-12 yrs old.
Kitchen had great supplies for cooking and cleaning up!
View from the balcony was stunning morning and evening.

Room Tip: We had two suites on the second level facing the harbor and sunsets! wonderful

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom unit with basic kitchen. Nice view of the marina with large outdoor patio. All staff members are very friendly and helpful. Location is perfect as you can walk downtown and enjoy all the restaurants and clubs in that part of Fort Myers.

There really is nothing negative about the hotel, but it's just a basic condo converted to a hotel. Off I-81 in Tennessee the same room would cost you $65 / night. I know it's all about location, location, location, but $350 / night plus taxes and fees is just plain overpriced for the less than impressive quality of the hotel property.

The wall A/C unit was too loud and obnoxious in 2 of the 3 total rooms. One of the rooms being a bedroom, which made sleeping a tad uncomfortable due noise.

All-in-all, a good, clean property in a good location. $150 / night for my room would have been a good deal. $199 would have been fairly priced.

For the record, the hotel was nearly empty.

What a pleasant surprise this place was. As others wrote, it was very clean, quiet and comfortable. We had 2 double beds and the bedding seemed new; slept well. The living area and kitchen were roomy and it was wonderful having a balcony overlooking a marina. Wish the kitchen had a blender and staples like sugar. The bathroom was small but updated and fine. We'd certainly stay there again!
