“Good spot for those not part of the Spring Break crew”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

My husband booked this hotel because it was a bit cheaper than some of the other resorts in Fort Myers Beach. We booked through travelocity, then after we checked in, noticed a $116 fee from them. We thought we'd already paid in full, so we asked about it. t's the 'resort' fee. Hmm...not sure it was very resort -ish, but oh well. Just seemed kind of tricky.

Overall it was a good stay. The traffic was so bad on Estero Blvd that the 1 mile from the bridge to the hotel took about 30 minutes to drive - PAINFUL. But we were able to walk everywhere. The beach is literally off the back of the hotel, so that was nice. Not enough chairs for the beach, mostly because went down early and would save five or six but not use them until late in the afternoon. We had a toddler with us, so it was nice to have a bathtub for baths and a little mini kitchenette and be able to walk to the beach and pools within 30 seconds.

Great restaurant across the street (Chucks), great ice cream across the street (Royal Scoop), great breakfast place across the street (Heavenly biscuit), liquor store across the street and a grocery two blocks down. If you walked not even half a mile towards the time square area, lots more food options.

My biggest peeve with teh place was the house keeping. A couple days we were in our room when they came by (naptime), so you'd think they'd come back (we put in teh sign that said service please) or the next day come earlier, but no. And each time something wasn't cleaned. For example, the first time we had put the towels we didn't want on the floor - like had egg bits all over it from our toddler, but it was folded up and put back in teh bathroom. Ick. So then I started piling dirty towels by the door. Then the next time waste baskets weren't emptied, and we had food and poopy diapers in them. and a few other things like that.

Like other people said, not near the Spring Break crazies, the hotel was pretty well sound proofed, and the shower always warm (though the water pressure was terrible).

We stayed at Neptune March 9-13, 2013 and were note disappointed. With having 2 children the two heated pools and beach at your doorstep was great. The staff was pleasant and answered any question we had and the property was well maintained. Lastly it is a very easy walk to the pier where the action is but you are far enough away that it is peaceful.

The Neptune is an older hotel that has been recently renovated. Accomodations are small but the room was clean and a few feet away from the beach. Prices were reasonable. The swimming pools were well maintained. The only downside is that Estero Blvd is the main strip and traffic is bad on Friday and Saturday nights.

I stayed here for a long weekend in March over Shrimp Fest (never had heard of it, but its a big deal in these parts!). This was a girls weekend, 5 high school friends (now in our 40's). We loved the fact that the beach was right out the door. The sand is beautiful as well.
We walked to restaurants (traffic is horrible) and strolled the beach. You can walk across the street to grab a bottle of wine, and the groceries for the kitchenette. Conveniences are nearby- yet you are not in the 'spring break party' part of the beach (so its quiet at night).

Only drawback was there was no balcony/patio. We would have enjoyed that for our happy hours. They also need more lawn chairs for the beach.

This was my second stay at the Neptune, and I would return again. The rooms are clean, 2 nice pools, beautiful beach and excellent front desk staff, especially Fred and Kathy. My only complaint was we did not get the room we had requested ( second floor, close to the beach) and were told we would be getting.

My wife and I went for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The location was great with grocery stores and restaurants nearby. The hotel is on the beach and the rooms were nice, like new and very comfortable, with kitchen facilities also. It was a very pleasant and convenient place to stay. IWe both look forward to going back for future stays there.

Room Tip: Ask to see a couple different rooms and choose the best one.

I stayed here for a long weekend over Shrimp Fest. I was not that familiar with the area but chose Neptune Inn based on other reviews. This was a great place to stay. We had a kitchenette which was very helpful. The room was clean and the beds were updated. Part of the sofa looked like it might have seen better days but it also looked clean. That is really the only bad thing I can say about this hotel. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Parking was assigned and in this area that's a big deal if you have a car. There were plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance. You could easily walk to the pier and center of town. There are 2 heated pools and chairs and towels are provided both for the pool and for the beach which is right out front. The shrimp fest parade going by was an added bonus and confirmed how quiet the hotel is because we barely heard it in our room and our room was closer to the street than beach.

Room Tip: The suites are very nice to have a bit of separate space. If you don't mind stairs, get a room...
