“EVERY BIT AS GOOD AS I REMEMBERED”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We've stayed here before and returned to spend six relaxing nights. It was every bit as nice as I remembered, a very attractive hotel, externally more impressive than your normal Hampton Inn. Internally, it's standard Hampton Inn - ie.smart and stylish for a mid-range hotel. Outside there's an attractive pool and terrace area, though we grew sick and tired of the piped music. Breakfast was fine, and the staff friendly.

It's about five miles from the beach, in a very quiet location with as-yet undeveloped fields around, and a Perkins five minutes walk away. We'd return again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

First time in a Hampton and very impresed with what I found. Easy to get to from the airport using the directions given on the hotel website. Plenty of car parking spaces and large welcoming lobby. Allocated a corner room on the 4th floor which was great, large lounge/tv area and separate bedroom. Bathroom was adequete and fine, nothing special. Big fridge and kitchenette area was a welcome surprise but as on vacation did not use.

Beds were clean and comfortable but not sure I need a post it note stuck to the headboard telling me they were freshly washed for every guest ( I would expect it, wouldn't you) Breakfast was served in the lobby was pretty good and what you would expect, Lisa & her team kept everything topped up and there was a change of hot items on each of the 3 days I spent here. Free USA Today a bonus as is the free wifi. There were also 2 computers in the lobby for printing your boarding pass or checking your email which was good. Pool was a tad small but usable.

Great location for Ft Myers beach and Sanibel beaches and plenty of restaurants nearby - do try Pinchers (went twice, 2 for 1 on house wines !) and Doc Ford's Rum bar & grille which was also good but a bit more pricey. Large Publix on the otherside of the junction opposite Perkins. There are lots of mini golf courses in the area and you are not far from the Miramar Outlets. Overall very impressed with the hotel & the helpful staff. All very relaxing.

Clean, and up-to-date, with a good breakfast (free), at $79 - a nice treat.

We were visiting the beach for the weekend, and rather than get a less than stellar gyp-joint on the beach, decided to try this sub-Hilton. It's only a mile or so to the beach.

Very worth while, and very satisfied with everything.

On November 2, I stayed at the Hampton Inn and Suites in Fort Myers Beach. Though I was disappointed that it was over a six mile drive to the Gulf beaches, it was a nice family style hotel that offered free breakfast.
Located at the crossroads of Summerlin and San Carlos, Hampton Inn had clean rooms, and the employees were all very pleasant. Its location made it convenient to reach Estero beach (at the end of San Carlos) and Sanibel beach (six miles straight down Summerlin).
My bid for this room was higher than it should have been for off-season, but I was looking for something last minute.

Dear Pam,

Thank you for choosing our hotel during your stay in Fort Myers Beach, FL. While we are not directly on the beach, we are convienently located on the crossroads to Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel Island and Fort Myers. During the busy season (December-March) our guests find our hotel's location to be great because you don't have to sit in the heavy traffic that builds up on the beach. We hope to have you back when you return to Fort Myers Beach!

My family was in Fort Myers for a wedding. I booked 2 suites at the Hampton Inn on Summerlin Road. I called to make the reservations because I wanted the rooms to be adjacent or at least across the hall. The rooms were at the opposite ends of the same floor. If the person taking the reservation would have said they couldn’t accommodate my request, I may have understood, but no message to that effect was stated; somewhat disappointed. As for the hotel, it was fine. Not on a busy road so quiet from road noise. Staff was friendly getting us extra towels and wash clothes. The breakfast was good. They had a variety of things everyday: cereal, breads, bagel, waffles, juice, fresh fruit, and some hot foods like eggs and bacon etc. The pool area was small, but clean. Check out was easy and without incident. They did miss my last name so I had to go to the office to find out why I could not connect to the free WiFi. Again, not a deal breaker, but an inconvenience. I would consider staying here again.

Room Tip: We had two suites. The rooms are nice for multiple people with two TVs if you have children or vari...
