This place is the meaning of hidden gem!!! Service from Lien and Pat was outstanding. Couldn’t ask for better hosts! Location. Right in the heart of the beach area literally 3 minutes from beach and 30 seconds to restaurants but super quiet. Free parking as well. Hotel. Rooms are rustic but very clean. Fridge, and small kitchen. Bbq for guests to use which was great as we cooked dinner in one night. Has a great Florida feel to the property as beautiful gardens. Simple complementary breakfast each morning to Overlooking the water way, we did see a couple of manatees. Plus the two pools were so nice to sit and relax in. We loved the upstairs room as quiet and lovely sitting on balcony

Amazing little place just a stone's throw from the busy bars and restaurants but somehow feels remote! Great room, pool, breakfast, hospitality, easy parking, access to beach equipment.... they have thought of everything - thanks again Lien and Pat!

The ratings on Tripadvisor prompted us to reserve this B&B for 3 nights. We were so lucky to find availability. Lien and Pat greeted us and instructed us to park right in front of our lodging. The room was furnished nicely and thoughtfully. The view of the back of the inn looked like a paradise with 2 pools and plenty of lounges and seating. The landscaping is the pride of the owners . The day starts with a lovely breakfast served between 8:30 and 10 am either inside the breakfast room our outside. Location is so convenient in walking distance to many restaurants, shops and 5 min. to the beach . The Manatee Inn will be on top of our list when we visit Ft. Myers Beach.

As many others have stated, the location of this small inn is practically perfect. We really appreciated the ability to walk just a few minutes to get away from the hustle and bustle of the beach area. It was so quiet and calm, we couldn't believe that we had just been in the crowds near the beach. The room was spotless. The beds were a bit soft but we both slept well. Because of Covid measure, breakfast at the inn was not being served.

Three of us retirees from American Airlines stayed here in December and what a charming studio and lovely owners of this hidden gem. It is close to many restaurants and walking distance to the pier and beach. The place has two pools and lovely views of Manatee Bay. We will hopefully return soon for a time of relaxation and fun!

My family and I absolutely loved our stay at the Manatee Bay Inn! Amazing location right by the beach but set back just enough that its away from all the bar and night life noise. We saw Manatees in the lagoon almost everyday we stayed there!! Owners are super nice and rooms are super clean!

The location is good, just around the corner from bars and beach but still quiet. Checkin was ok. The dock is great to sunbathe on, watching the boats and wildlife apart from the days the workmen were working there which was a bit annoying. we were not told this. The room. Was clean but smaller than the pictures portray and dark. the bathroom was really small with a pretty poor shower. The kitchen area was fine with a full fridge and cooker. Bed small and sofa knackered. No safe. Air-con was just awful. Really loud. Badly needs an update. Thought this place was expensive for what it is. Found cheaper, bigger and more up-together in the Keys which is renowned for being expensive.

My husband and I stayed for three nights while celebrating a friend’s birthday. The room was clean, ample size, and well equipped with a regular size fridge and kitchenware. It’s pretty basic and not fancy but very comfortable. There are two small pools that are very clean and quiet. We ate our breakfast outside which included fresh fruit, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, bread, cheese and ham. One afternoon we spotted a manatee!!! A five minute walk puts you right on the beach and by plenty of restaurants. The owners are THE BEST. So accommodating, personable, and nice. Thank you Lien and Pat, we loved our stay at The Manatee Bay Inn.

Great stay in cute little apt on lagoon two mins from town square. Dock on lagoon with furniture umbrellas and tables was what we were looking for. Dolphins even swam by the dock. Unit was very clean and nicely decorated.

Clean & comfortable with friendly staff and owners. Each room has a great view of the inlet bay and very clean. Seriously clean. At most beach hotels there always seems to be some leftover sand on floor - Not at Manatee Bay Inn. They also have a good continental breakfast each morning along with 2 small swimming pools (one heated, one not - something for everyone). Every moment was pure bliss! Thank you Valerie, Hong & Mayan!
