This is a family owned, 1960's era MOTEL with approx. 16 rooms, and has a small restaurant directly next door. There's indoor and outdoor eating that boasts a great view.The motel has its own private docks for their guests and a pool.
It's located on 9140 Gulfshore Dr, and corner of Vanderbilt Beach Rd. N. Naples,FL 34108. (239) 597-2551.
We come to Naples several times a year and have stayed at many of the resorts and hotel ie.The Ritz-Carlton, The LaPlaya, Vanderbilt Inn, The Registry(back in the day!), and some private homes and condo's. But for the last several years we continue to go back to the Lighthouse.
The rooms are a nice size, with livingroom,dining area, king bed room , and the full kitchen, full bath, are furnished with everything you'll need. There are window a/c units in the one bedroom and could be a problem if you're sleeping hot in livingroom and cold in bedroom!
This motel has been so successful because the owners and on site managers run it as their home, (since it is), and keep it clean...inside and out! This is not party central, so don't come here expecting drunken, all nighters and jumping off the balcony into the pool type thing. It's not going to happen.
The people that vacation here feel like its OUR home too.
There are MANY REGULARS that come back year after year and stay for months.
The location is excellent! You don't pay for hotel parking.
You are a short walk, just cross the street, and you are on the beach. No driving involved.
There's a nice little family owned Palm Beach Cafe within walking distance, right next door. They have a delicious selection of breakfast, lunch, pizza, ice cream, not too pricey.
Be sure and visit The Turtle Club directly across the street for some beach front dining and drinking. The view is breath taking and so relaxing.
