“Great Motel and a Great Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

Last week my wife and I spent three wonderful days at Ft. Meyers beach. We stayed in the Best Western Plus on the beach. We could not have found a better motel. All of the rooms overlook the beach. From the time we walked into the front lobby until the time we left it was nothing short of being a great experience with this motel. The staff was friendly and gave out information when we needed ideas about places to eat, visit and tour. I never once saw anyone at the front desk that seemed to be rude or put out over any questions we had. We were there to renew our wedding vows. We went to the edge of the water and recited to each other how we felt. The beach is white, clean and added a great back drop for out vows. We are not a young couple but this motel just made us feel young again. Our room was perfect. It was clean and appeared to have been recently renovated. We both agreed we could not have found a better place to stay. We want to go back again but I would not consider staying anywhere else. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will only go back when they have a room for us. Once you have stayed at the Best Western you will not want to stay at any other motel. You have to see the place to realize how beautiful it is. Of course Coco added a little flavor to the lobby. In fact it talked to us on several occasions. Thanks go out to the staff and all of the people that helped make this such an enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor so you can see the ocean and of course the sunsets.

Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review during your weekend visit to Fort Myers. Unfortunately, I believe that you have our hotel confused with the BEST WESTERN PLUS Beach Resort located on Fort Myers Beach. Although both of our hotels do offer a number of the same amenities like 40" Flat screen TV's, a free hot breakfast and free wireless internet, we cannot compete with the beautiful sunsets of the Gulf Coast. If you ever decide to venture into Fort Myers and you are looking for another Best Western, be sure to some visit our hotel. Thanks again for your review and have a great day.

Just arrived home from staying 3 nights at the Best Western on Ford Street Ext. The hotel was well kept and clean. The breakfast was adequate and the housekeeping staff did a nice job. Most of the front desk staff was fine. We had issue with one of the front desk girls. She was horrible (probably why she worked nights). We were in Ft. Myers for a softball tourney. There were 3 teams staying at the hotel. It rained so a lot of the parents and players were hanging in the lobby. Voices were normal and NO ONE was getting out of control. She called the police to get everyone out of the lobby because she thought it was noisey. Her favorite word was NO and her 2 favorite phrases were "Corporate Policy" and "Ft. Myers law." If it was policy and a law why were we able to swim in the pool and sit in the lobby after 9pm on the 2 previous nights. I have a call in to the Assistant Manager to discuss the matter. If you don't want groups then don't take groups. I will also be calling Lee County Sports to advice them of the situation. Hopefully they will drop them from their hotel list!

We stayed here for the first time and found it to be very good.
The check in and check out were both without problems - the staff were friendly and quick.
Our room was comfortable with a coffee machine, flat screen TV, refigerator, microwave, ironingboard and iron.
There was wi-fi which was working throughout our stay.
Breakfast was included in the price and there was a reasonable choice of food - hot and cold.
There are plenty of restaurants in the area and easy access to local attractions.
I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

We had room 115 and that bed was awesome!! Girl at front desk was very friendly and hooked us up with some killer Mexican food. Room was very clean, breakfast was good. We could not park at our window which we did not like but it was fine. What's up with the water pressure in all these places??? Shower pressure low here too but the nice bed made up for it! Cost us $80.

Stayed with our family of 4 on our way from the Keys to Orlando. Easy and quick to get to from I75 without being next to the motorway. We got a nice and clean room with 2 queen beds. Very comfy beds. Ok free breakfast with great, cook-you-own waffles. Children enjoyed the pool (even though it is small). Perfect hotel for a 1-2 night stop. Overall very good value for money!
