Hideaway Waterfront Resort & Hotel
Ranked #3 of 6 Hotels in Cape Coral
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Low cost hotel, about the level of a motel 6. The bed was old, the pillows bad, and the grounds look like they are kept up by your junkie next door neighbor. Spent one night trying to find a local alternative to the chain hotels, but looks like I will be back at the Hampton.

This place was fantastic, what a find! Our 'room' was essentially a small apartment with a big lounge, kitchenette, huge bedroom overlooking the water, and spotlessly clean bathroom. This place has its own dock and offers FREE kayak hire, fishing from the dock, bicycles, parking spaces, wifi, BBQ and sunloungers. A good pool as well for such a small place!

We were made to feel welcome the moment we arrived, the owners couldn't do enough to assist us. We ate breakfast out on the deck watching fish jump in the water. I only wish we could've stayed longer and tried out the kayaks.

We have family in the Cape Coral area and have stayed at the Hideaway several times. On our last visit we brought our 2 small dogs to stay with us. We have been in a number of hotels/motels that are pet-friendly but not so clean; in most of them I would not walk on the carpet with bare feet. The Hideaway is an exception - immaculate tile floors, linens, and furnishings, though not that new. The motel was built in the 60's I think, and the wall airconditioners are a little loud, but that did not prevent us from getting a good nights sleep. We will definitely be back.

We found Hideaway Waterfront Resort and Hotel while searching the internet for a place to stay on our way home from Tampa. We usually stay in chain hotels so we were at first hesitant to try a new place but the thought of sitting on the dock, kayaking, and fishing lured us in!! Although we only spent 1 night ... it felt like we had a week-long vacation! We will be returning soon. I think Hideaway will become our regular get-away spot!

We stayed here the week of 7/16-7/20/12, it is a very nice motel hidden in a residential area. It was quiet, clean. The staff was very nice. I loved the back of the motel, being on a canal with a large deck, hammock, plenty of tables & chairs. We had the chance to use the gas grill out back, had a wonderful steak dinner on the deck by the water. I loved that everything you need is there, dishes, linens, stove, fridge, microwave, glasses, coffee maker. If you are looking for a hoity toity motel this isn't for you, but if you want a clean friendly place to stay this is it. We would definetely stay here again. Thank you Linda & Mark.

This is a family-run resort and Mark, Linda and Kyle epitomize what the hospitality business is supposed to be. They really care about every detail. The place is not cookie-cutter modern, like all the chain hotels. So it that's what you are after this isn't your place. The Hideaway has a charm and comfort that reminds our family of more relaxed, happier times. Sitting poolside or on the deck overlooking the canal, we slow down and begin to savor time together. For us, this is the only place to stay in the Cape Coral/ Fort Myers area.

My family had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff and owners really took good care of us. The apartment was clean, inviting and had plenty of room. All the amenities were designed for comfort. We used the grill, full kitchen, kayak and the pool as well as the grounds. My Husband and daughter had dolphins come up to their kayak while paddling through the canal. We had five people stay in the room and there was plenty of space for everyone. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for anyone who loves a taste of old Florida and the feel of a private resort.

Room Tip: Doesn't matter which room you choose. All the rear windows face the canal and the place is quie...
