I booked this at the last minute and as soon as we drove up, realized it was a mistake. As others have said, it is very old and the cleanliness is questionable. It may be that things are just so worn that they can't be revived, but to say that it is tired is an understatement.
The staff were pleasant but not around much, we went to the office 2 or 3 times to ask about something and they were no where to be found.

Our main complaint is the location. It is in the middle of a residential area, not near anything, and the beach that they tell you they are near is quite a drive and is a little spit of sand.

I see that others don't agee but I would never recommend this place.

Hello Guest. Thank you for taking the time to comment. We are, indeed, nestled in a quiet area. As our name and website describe, the ‘Hideaway’ has earned a reputation for this particular ‘hidden away’ quality, and tranquil surroundings. And although there are a few smaller beaches in the area, we are also within easy driving distance of world-renowned beaches such as Fort Myers and Sanibel.

Of course, we are sorry to hear of your disappointment. Our commitment to Guest satisfaction is our first priority!

Proprietor

We had a very nice stay at The Hideaway recently. Our suite was down-home cozy and comfortable. We made new friends at the pool, had fun trying out the paddle boat, and enjoyed our evening out on the back deck chatting with cool breezes, water views, and sparkly lights that set such a pleasant atmosphere. Mark and Linda went out of their way to welcome us and provided great service. See photos and videos of our trip:

Where else can you go and get free paddle boats, kayaks, barbecue area ?? Plus on our first trip they called us and told us what we had left behind!! I have never had that kind of service anywhere else.
The price is great. The service is outstanding. It is a low key, family atmosphere and we love it!

Room Tip: Room 9 next to the birds is much larger than some of the other rooms.

I stayed here with my fiance for 2 nights and we enjoyed it.

We really didn't spend much time in the room but ours was clean and well equipped with kitchen, fridge etc. Beds are comfy and the grounds are really quaint as the hotel backs up to the canal.

We enjoyed laying in the hammock and watching the boats go by.

The staff are super friendly and gave us a tour of the hotel. Small things like that make a big difference.

This really has to be the best deal in Cape Coral / Fort Myers.

We needed a place to stay before a week on Sanibel. Fort Myers beach is just tacky. So we opted for Cape Coral. We chose the Hideaway Waterfront Resort based on Tripadvisor reviews; once again thank you for a great place. Yes, it's dated but it's clean and in a safe neighborhood. My family and children stayed in a suite with separate bedroom (huge confortable king size bed) and children on fold out couch in living room. My parents stayed in an adjoining efficiency. The pool was good sized and felt great. As a bonus, use of kayaks and a paddleboat were included (and use of life jackets). My kids loved it. There is music at the pool (more of my parents genre) but we could still carry on a conversation. We would stay there again. Not the Hilton but a bargain in this area.
