We were on an impromptu visit to Ft. Meyers Beach and chose this hotel from the reviews read on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed, nice little place that is on a lovely property on the water of an inlet. It was within a very short walk of the beach, restaurants and music. It is an older motel, but the rooms... More

Situated on the edge of an attractive lagoon and within walking distance to shops, restaurants and a gorgeous beach. The motel had a gift shop where the office was located snd it was full of souvenirs and pirate memorabilia. Friendly, helpful... More

The motel is great and could not ask for better people there. The gift shop is one of the best on the island and best prices too. It's in the middle of everything. Two pools and the rooms have that island feel. We just love the Shipwreck. Most of the rooms are off the pools. We live in North Fort... More

We live close by in Fort Myers but wanted to get away for the weekend on our boat. They had plenty of dock space to accommodate boats.

We have stayed on Fort Myers Beach several times and have tried other hotels, but this was by far the best stay yet! The room, view and the location were excellant. We are getting ready to book again....one last trip before summer ends. Jaye was very nice at check in/check out....love the store too!

Small pool. Few amenities. Small and dated rooms. However, super nice staff, real cozy place, and within an arm's reach of the beach and a wide choice of terrific restaurants. A view of canals, palm trees, and gorgeous sunsets. Can't ask for more than that! I appreciated the diligence, honesty, and consideration of housekeeper Nuria who found my treasured necklace...

They were doing some remodeling, but that did not keep us from enjoying our week. Very attentive staff. Will go back. Plenty of eating spots near, and just a short walk to the beach. Just look for the Shipwreck Store, as the checkin is in there.
