“Relaxing view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My husband & I spent 3 nights at the Hideaway in late February as we wanted to visit Sanibel Island & did not want to spend Sanibel prices for accommodations. We were pleasantly surprised to find this hidden waterfront property with much more value for the money than anyplace closer to Sanibel. We had a studio room with full kitchen, full size refrigerator, dishwasher & full size stove & a king size bed. Nice big closet & nightstands for storage as well as TV armoire. Our TV had some issues and the owners took care of the problem in a timely manner. The pool was heated, the back deck area faced the canal with Tiki huts & plenty of seating as well as a hammock for relaxing. Although the weather was fairly cool while we were there, we spent a couple of evenings enjoying the back deck which was lit up at night so we could enjoy the waterfront & the moonlight. The owners made lots of suggestions for restaurants within walking distance and sights within the area. A nice quiet residential neighborhood surrounded the property; Cape Coral is an affordable alternative to other more crowded nearby areas like Fort Meyers & Sanibel. We always enjoy supporting family run businesses whenever possible instead of the large hotel chains as it makes travelling much more memorable.

Room Tip: All the rooms overlook the heated pool area to the front & the waterfront is to the rear of the...

It was in a great location and the owners were very helpful. I was not impressed with the lack of cleanliness of our room and even had to clean the soap scum off the tub/shower myself. Even older hotels can be clean and fresh smelling.The onsite washer/dryer was nasty looking so we went to the laundry mat at the end of the street and it was actually in much better shape than the hotels.but it was more expensive which was fine with me.

We stayed there for a week in Feb. '13 and had a great time. The owners Mark and Linda and their son, Kyle, were great. They are always there if you need anything and are more than happy to answer any questions about the area. We drove down from Minnesota and brought our boat since the Hideaway has boat docks. It was so nice to hop in our boat and take off.

The back area is very lovely - large deck, beautiful canal, sandy area, lots of seating, and a nice grilling area. The pool area is very nice also - nice music always playing and all the other guests were very friendly and enjoyable.

We definitely plan on returning!

We stayed at the Hideaway Resort for 3 weeks in Feb (along with our Shiu Tzu Bailee.)
What a beautiful, relaxing place; Also quiet. The maids & other help were also very friendly. We have never had such a relaxing vacation even though we did lots while there. We golfed, rode the bikes, went for walks, swam in the pool; also went to the beach about 10 minutes away.The deck area by the canal is beautiful; great for sitting out before ending the evening or during the day. Also enjoyed just sitting in front of our room enjoying the view & relaxing. Out back lots of chairs, shady areas or sunny areas during the daytime, hammock & bbq area; had our lunch there many times; small sandy area & dock. We were able to fish as well as just relax. The motel has a very clean, heated pool; good music playing also. Also books, puzzles & games available to use. We used their bikes to go riding a few times.The owners, Linda and Mark & their son Kyle are very friendly & helpful. Also very approachable if there is anything you need. Will help with directions, or recommend a restaurant if needed. Shopping, lots of restaurants nearby.We definately want to return next year & have already given Mark & Linda the dates. Would highly recommend this motel to others. It is minus 3 at home right now. Sure wish we were at the Hideaway.

This is a family operated motel style hotel with about 14 rooms/suites on two floors. Mark, Linda and son Kyle are always there to be of assistance to make your stay enjoyable. We were in a suite, 108, on the main floor. There was a living room, kitchen and bedroom with king bed. We heard no noise from other rooms although a number of guests were accompanied by their pets.
We enjoyed the relaxed and quiet atmosphere of the place. We loved the pool which was very clean and kept heated; there were a number of chairs, tables with umbrellas. On the canal side there was either shade or sun and again plenty of comfortable chairs.
There was a beach about a mile away, Publix grocery nearby and numerous restaurants. Hideaway Waterfront Resort was much more relaxing than staying in one of the chains.

What an adorable place!! I especially loved the back deck area. This is a Family run place with clean comfortable rooms, HUGE back deck overlooking the canal, Gas grill for your enjoyment, (Coin) Laundry on site, Boat slips available, wi-fi, and a 6.6 foot deep heated pool. I have Back/Neck issues and am happy to say the beds are very comfortable. It was great to have dishes/utensils, an actual stove, microwave, fridge and coffee maker as well as coffee and dish detergent in the room.
I was even allowed to print my boarding passes in the office which saved me money. A ride to the airport upon departure was arranged for us and we were given recomendations for a great local restaurant as well.
Lots of little extras make it a "Homey" place to stay.
Oh, and staff is honest-I left cash and credit cards in my purse and left for several hours to return to a clean room and all my valuables still where I left them! Good value for the money...

Room Tip: Suites have a Sofa and Loveseat with separate bedroom and Guest rooms do not.

Other reviewers have pointed out that this small motel that has many charming features and owners that care about your comfort. I agree with them. It's a little "old" in some regards, but charming, well located, and comfortable.

I told the owners I needed a strong wifi connection, and they placed me in the room directly over the main office, where the router is located. I had a strong signal, without any interruptions, during the entire week I was there.

I recommend this lovely motel if you are looking for an alternative to the chain hotels.

Room Tip: Ask for a center room if wifi connectivity is important to you.
