“Good value and close enough to beach.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

No frills, but it was close enough to hop a trolley to the beach, and the staff was friendly. We were in tone for a spring training game and this was a nice halfway point between Hammond stadium and Ft. Meyers beach. The room could have been cleaner though...bare feet on the tile floor left us all with gritty, black feet. Yuck. Also the pictures of the room online showed a kitchen area and a loft...neither of which were actually in the room we got. It was just okay for the money.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

In the bustle of Fort Myers Beach,this was a really quite hotel. Close to the beaches, but far away from the drunk spring breakers, this place was the perfect compromise. The beds were comfy, the room larger than I expected and very clean. I was very relaxed and slept soundly. Also great if you plan on using the Key West Express. You can park at the hotel for free (just take a taxi over) even if staying in KW for several days. I would definitely come back if I ever came to Fort Myers again.

Room Tip: The street traffic can get noisy, so if this bothers you, ask to be farthest from the street. Keepi...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

Exactly what you would expect from a low cost hotel. Price was right and was very close to beaches. It worked good for us as we only needed a place to rest our heads for a few hours. Kenny at the desk was very friendly and knowledgeable. Hotel bathroom was bright and clean. Floor was swept but made our feet dirty after shower, so probably wasn't as clean as it looked. Also, the AC is very hard to figure out, as another posted noted. We got it to beep and light up but never did get it to go on and I had to get up a few times during the night to open the door for air. All in all, I would stay here again if I needed a place to crash for a few hours, but probably couldn't stay more than a night as the mattresses are soft as marshmallows...

Room Tip: Check in before 5pm to get a lesson on how to use the A/C.

The people that wrote the last review must have had to many drinks the phone # is on the front door of the office there is night manager there to. The AC units work on remotes you must point them at the AC unit to turn them on next time try not to have to many drinks so you know whats going on instead of giving bad reviews

Room Tip: Try the loft room

My wife and I booked a trip on the Key West Express ferry, it leaves early so we wanted a room close by the marina. Tip Top was recommended by the KW express and we received a discount on the room. When we booked we were told that the office closes at 6PM so we arrived just in time for check in. The room was bare bones but clean. The hotel offered us a place to park our car free of charge, and the staff was very friendly. However after dinner and drinks down the street we got ready for bed and the AC didn't work. The office was closed and didn't open before we left so no help there, it was a long and sweaty night, with so much traffic noise we couldn't leave the window open. I understand it was off season and only two people in the Inn, but they should have at least left an emergency number for problems!

First time being in the area, I wanted to go to Sanibel Island but not pay the prices to stay there. Tip top hotel was a great location, small but did the job, it was clean. We only stayed for a night. Did a mini fishing on the dock late at night since they have a marina, even enjoy a little pool time. It's off a busy road but Didnt bother me at all when I was in the room. I would say they need wider curtains. But I would stay there again.

We had a room on the 1st floor next to the road. We experiented a lot of noise during both nights. Traffic, A/C, fan in bathroom, refrigetator roaring every 20 min. Besides that the room was ok. The staff was friendly and the motel had a small self service laundry.
