We stayed here for 5 days on vacation as we wanted to visit several places in the area. Getting to and from here was very convenient. And it is in a nice quiet area. We even saw 2 bald eagles on light posts at the school next door on occasion! The room was a bit strange though,

The room was clean and quiet. The bathroom was clean and organized. The bed was super comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again. I've stayed at a lot of hotels and this by far was the most comfortable.

I was concerned with the stay from the recent bad reviews. However all the remodeling was complete. Room was clean and quiet with cold a/c. The staff was always friendly and helpful. It was nice to have the free laundry facilities on site. The location is tucked away but still

This hotel is in a very strange location, if using Uber for transportation be prepared for them to have trouble finding you. This happened all week which was frustrating. We booked a room with two beds, upon arrival our room had one bed, they did bring a roll away. Also this

Hello, I'm very sorry to hear about your negative experience with us. Unfortunately we are tucked back away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Sanibel/Ft Myers Beach access nearby which does make it a little hard to find when not familiar or using gps. I am pleased to say we are done with our renovations so everything is looking fantastic and our Candlewood Cupboard is fully functional for your drink and snack needs. If you decide to stay with us in the future, I am certain you will have a great experience.
