Every single person who is working here is exceptional. Tons of energy and it looks like they love to work here and they love their customers. This is my place to go in Fort Myers during Spring Training, and it is highly recommended.

Quiet, clean, secluded and excellent value. This is an extended stay hotel so it includes kitchen facilities. It is in a somewhat secluded location so it is very quiet which I liked. That means no bars, restaurants or shopping within walking distance. We do not spend a lot of time in the hotel so it is a great home base....

The minute you arrive at the hotel and check in you feel welcomed. The hotel is clean and quite. We prefer the suite with a bedroom because if someone is tired that person can go to a separate room and lay down. I like to walk and near the hotel there is a very nice park to walk around.

Good lending closet of beach chairs, blender, sun umbrellas etc.. As an extended stay facility, cleaning is weekly but you can exchange towels as needed and put out trash daily. Friendly staff, heated pool, grills and free onsite laundry.

The staff was great! Very friendly. The room was nice and clean. Only complaints are the ice maker in the room didn't work and there was no information in the room for what the tv channels were. The workout room was nice, laundry room was good. Also, enjoyed the pool and the grill area. Would stay there again.

Great place, great staff and nice and quiet area. Easy and short drive to beaches on Sanibel, Captiva and Ft. Myers Beach. Shopping and good places to eat are close by. We stayed here in early March. I wish the pool area had afternoon sun.

This was the second consecutive year that we stayed at this hotel. Was a convenient location for places we did day-trips to. Traffic on the main street (Summerlin) was heavy but traffic flowed reasonably well. Since Summerlin cuts diagonally through town, it was our preferred method of driving. Of course, beach travel in the opposite direction was also quite convenient....

The "suites" in the hotel are really one normal size motel room with a small kitchen facility included. The bed is closer to standard size than queen and one side of the bed is against a wall - when two people expect to sleep together, one has to crawl over the other or climb in from the foot of the...

Made this reservation for a last minute trip and was pleasantly surprised. Close to Sanibel without having to pay the island prices. The full kitchen is a great asset for a longer stay. It's set back from the road in a corporate park so not terribly scenic, but awesomely quiet. We'll stay here again when back for a longer period.

This is a very, very basic, no-frills hotel. The room (419) was clean, but the fridge door had been bashed and the bathroom tub and door need repairs. The bed is up against one wall, making it difficult to get in and out of. For the price, some major updating is needed. Staff is friendly and helpful. I'd stay here...
