We had a great stay at the hotel. The staff was very friendly. The rooms were clean. Thete were grills for us to use to cook out on. The pool was a perfect temperature. The beds were comfy. We would certainly go back.

We were very impressed with the very professional and friendly staff, especially Bonnie, who went out of her way to make sure our stay was excellent. The location was great, close to driving across the bridge to Ft. Myers Beach, as well as Sanibel Island. The hotel was very quiet and located off a main highway. Loved this hotel and...

Quiet and nice area not far from stores and outlets. Just 10 minutes to Fort Myers Beach or about 15 minutes to the beautiful Sanibel Island. Candlewood Suites have nice and helpful staff. Great with free washing machines and dryers.

I would likely try another hotel on the next trip to Fort Myers. I would like to emphasize that the staff was awesome and always greeted me with a smile. I questioned the initial cleanliness of the room (cleaned it myself to be sure) and the space is outdated.

“Although the room AC was a loud, the room itself was very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of towels, kitchen utensils, etc. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family. We loved the "family atmosphere" of the hotel and the incredible staff.”
