“Great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

We stayed at Beacon motel for a week in February and really enjoyed our stay. The location to the beach and all the activities was perfect. Our room was clean and we'll supplied. We found the staff very friendly also. Our stay for next year is already reserved.

I read the last three reviews and they sound nothing like the experience that we had at this motel. We were there the first week of May and the people running the place (including Bonnie) were very pleasant people. The location was perfect; right on the beach and close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants at Ft Myers Beach. We were very comfortable in the suite-like room. I would definitely consider staying at this motel in the future.

Room Tip: There wasn't a fitness center, but we weren't wanting a fitness center. I rated Fitness Cen...

Watch out for the white trash crackheads that run that nasty place. Old lady bonnie yelled and screamed at everyone!! No manners. The other younger crackhead had her drunk friends there and her 6year old running around the pool with no supervision. Rooms were gross...at least there was a view.

We found this motel in a great location and more reasonably priced given the time of year. The room was not ready we were told until 3 because it was being cleaned. We had been at the pool and beach all day and finally were let in at 3 pm and found the bathroom uncleaned. The bathtub was filthy and the shower did not work. When Bonnie, the manager came to address the issue, she agreed it was not clean and told us we would have to wait for the maintenance man to get back to the island and she could not say when that would be. The maintenance man came hours later and rigged up duct tape to hold the knob in the shower up to allow a shower (after we had gone out for the night). He came back at 8 am knocking on our door (check out is 10 am) to fix the shower. None of us 3 women could shower after all day in the sun. No apologies were made, no offer or discount on the night stay, but when we approached the front desk in the morning if we could at least get a late check out, we were told, at most 1 hour. We asked for pool towels and she told us we would have to return them at 11 am check out. We couldn't even use a towel for a little bit after our experience? The young front desk girl was rude and unapologetic. It is very obvious to me that the folks here do NOT care about your experience or if you ever return. Obviously, we will never be returning.

Room Tip: Make them give you a CLEAN room!

After staying here the night...(Very noisy and loud) we departed the next morning. 1 hour later I realized I forgot my phone in my room. I called the owner but she refused to go to the room. She didn't have time! She said that "IF" she found it she would send it to us.. If stolen that she couldn't do anything about it. She was very very rude and abrupt. (The owner). We reported this to a police officer that said that we can go small claims on her. What a shame...... She does not value her guest!!!

Room Tip: Check around there are better places to stay! They rent to college students that party all the time...

My husband and I just returned from Ft. Myers Beach staying at the Beacon for 10 nights.....had Unit 1 with a living room, gally kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. The sheets and towels smell wonderful and clean...the bed and breakfast is right in the heart of all the action.......we were very comfortable......only 14 units.....on the beach with a swimming pool.....breakfast room (continental)....Bonnie and her daughter are very friendly and accommodating....unlike a big hotel.......easy walking to everything........

Only negative is the "Cottage" two doors away with a live band every night...........

If you want a small hotel right in the heart of the action where all you have to do is walk back to your room and not worry about drinking and driving, this is the place for you.....
