What a treat to stay here. Owners were very welcoming - accommodation was immaculate and was well situated . Very relaxing - breakfast was just perfect and gave a good variety for a continental . Definitely stay here if I returned to Fort Myers.

This is really a great hotel at a perfect location. Quiet area but very close to time square with restaurants and bars. It was also very close to the beach. The owners where always around and could help out if needed. Great breakfast, clean rooms and overall good service. We enjoyed our stay a lot and would like to recommend... More

Beautiful location. Two relaxing pools. Sun deck with view of the bay. Friendly owners. Cute and clean two room apt with balcony view of the bay. You don't need a car as everything is within walking distance however if staying a longer time I recommend it. Sanibel/Captiva island and Lovers Key beach are a short drive and worth the visit....

Our family (2 adult and 2 kids, 7 and 9 y/o) stayed at the Manatee inn for 7 nights. Such a lovely place! 2 blocks fr.o.m. The beach, one block to great restaurants. Just next to a calm harbour, lots of fish. We also had two manatees visiting and playing just outside. Our room, apt 3 was clean and spacious.... More

The Inn is expertly run by its owners. Everything is super clean and in working order. There’s a parking place especially reserved for each room. The breakfast is... More

Very friendly and helpful owners and staff! Our apartment was really nice, although the bathroom was rather small. Full kitchen and patio with pool and Bay view. Everything was well maintained and clean. The bed was very good and the free wifi worked very well! The location was great! Walking distance from the beautiful beach and nice restaurants. We would...

The owners deserve all the excellent reviews for this B & B Inn. My wife and i spent two nights here in June 16 and from the moment we arrived and the wonderful welcome and wow factor of both our room and the view to the moment we left, i can not recommend it highly enough.

We have stayed before and loved it, but the room we had this time (No. 2), was a little disappointing and smelt musty/damp in areas. Valerie was in charge whilst the owners were on holiday and helped us out with anything we needed. Breakfast is very continental/european. The grounds and pools are lovely and it is a delight to sit... More

We stayed for 5 nights in April and would highly recommend Manatee Bay inn. the owners are friendly and on hand in the office. Our room was spotlessly clean and we had a lovely balcony overlooking the bay. We drank a glass of wine on the dock one evening which was idyllic. Breakfast was superb, buffet style. included, ham, cheese,... More
