“Great Couple of Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2010

My wife and I live in Cape Coral, FL. Every now and then we like to go somewhere close, stay at a hotel, and just get away. I was a bit surprised when my wife suggested we spend a couple days before Thanksgiving at the Best Western on Ft. Myers Beach!

Well, I thought, it's an easy drive, just over 20 miles from our house, and it might be fun. I was very happy with the check in process, the room and amenities. We had a "standard room" on the 4th floor. (All floors face the beach.) It had two beds, a full kitchen and large bath. The housekeeping staff excelled in their efforts to provide, not only clean rooms, but all the "extras" you may need. The pool is heated, which is good for this time of the year. Our pool at home is really too cool to get into now, so the use of their pool was fun. We slept with our balcony door open so we could hear the waves at night; very relaxing. The continental breakfast was great!!!! Last, but not least, the prices were fantastic!

All in all, we had a great time, and are looking forward to returning when the need to, "get away" arises.

I stayed there for two nights in October, and no doubt we enjoyed our stay there. The staff is incredible helpful and the location just couldn't be better. The beach is AMAZING and the pool is also great. The free internet in the lobby is a great plus too.

Breakfast was ok too, though I have to admit it kind of shocked me that all the cups, plates, fork and knives were in plastic... In times like today I think it is an absolute must for hotels to show the example and to think about the environment. That's the only thing I have to point out about this hotel, I hope something will be done about this.

My husband and I just spent 3 nights here and I wish we could have met the manager so I could have told him/her it was the best managed resort/hotel we have ever stayed at. Everything was perfect from the gorgeous oceanfront rooms to the most beautifully landscaped lawns. Every staff member we met was courteous, smiling and helpful. The included continental breakfast provided toast, bagels, donuts, pastries, cereal, yogurt, boiled eggs, grits, waffles, juices, coffee and tea. The heated pool and pool area was kept immaculate. A wonderful unexpected bonus was Coco the Amazon who lives a very charmed life at the resort. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Thank you so much for the great review, I wish we could have met you as well. We were at the Best Western Convention in Vancouver B.C. having a great time and attending many Education Sessions and finding out what direction Best Western will be leading us into the future. Guest satisfaction was #1 on the list and it looks like we are on the right track.
Take care and Coco says Happy Holidays.

Just got back from a few nights here and it was awesome! The beds were comfy and it was nice having a full size fridge and microwave. The beach was clean and it was just a short walk to the pier. We even saw dolphins swimming by. The grounds were nicely kept. We just wished that they kept the pool open later!

Clean, perfectly placed, up to date. Didn't use the small, fully-equipped, efficiency kitchen but it is a nice accommodation. Granite counters in kitchen and bath. Tile floors and no odor of salt spray or mildew. The beach is far superior to Sanibel. Beautiful view of the Gulf and the grounds are almost to Disney standards. I have a hunch this property is managed by the same company as "Pink Shell" just a little further up the beach. The only change I could recommend is dropping their "pet friendly" designation. Although neither existed what could be worse than bed bugs and flees!

Can recommend restaurants of Charlie's Boat House a few miles to the South and Pinchers just back over the bridge.

Just returned from a great day break in SW Florida, 10 at this hotel. The location is great with direct access to the beach from the garden and pool area, a short walk gets you to all the bars and eateries. Staff are well trained and keen to please. As the hotel has just completed a refurbishment everywhere was crisp and new. Free internet in the lobby a great plus. All rooms have ocean views which is great when you get up in the morning. You cannot miss the resident parrot Coco who entertains you whilst on his perch in the garden and greets you when you check in, great fun. We will be going back in the near future.

I took my family to Ft. Meyers Beach Resort last December, and have a repeat trip scheduled for this year. The hotel has the best beachfront of any of the hotels in the area, especially the Pink shell which is dirty and stinky. My kids wouldn't even walk any further when we got near the PS. The swimming pool at the Best Western Resort was fabulous for the kids to get some play time in away from the sand and was very clean and quaint. Every room here faces the water and we had spectacular sunset views each and every night. The location of the hotel to restaurants is great, not right next to them, but just a short walk to several great seafood joints, a taco joint, pizza places and even a DQ not too far away for a little ice cream. The pier is also just a couple blocks away as well. We could not have been happier with a fully loaded 4-star resort, this was exactly what was needed for our family. Oh, and we grilled steaks and burgers one afternoon on the gas grill right down by the shuffle boards and the beach. If you want the beach and not a bunch of crap you'll pay for and not use, go here.
