“Great place to stay for business.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012 via mobile

This is exactly what the business traveler wants with one exception, a decent gym. The hotel is well maintained, in a great location close to I-75 and great restaurants. The beds are comfortable and the breakfast is great. Just please add some working equipment to your gym so we can keep up the workout when away on business.

Thank you so much for your kind and honest review. I wish we had known during your stay that you had a problem with the fitness equipment, we surely would have taken care of the issue immediately. I greatly appreciate the fact that you did take the time to post about the experience and we have already addressed the issue that I am assuming was with one of our eliptical bikes in our fitness area. It appeared it had somehow come off of the track, which would most definitely cause an issue with the operation. I am so glad we were able to remedy that problem, and really look forward to your giving us the chance to redeem ourselves in regards to our fitness area on your next return to Fort Myers. The next time you are in the area, it would be great for you to check out the Lakes Park or the 10 mile linear park that is great for walking, jogging, or cycling. Thank you again for your patronage and we look forward to accommodating you in the future if the needs arises. We really try to exceed all customer expectations, and when we fall short it is not something we take lightly, once again we appreciate all feedback, and will make it up to you on your next trip!!

Stayed there for 2 weeks due to a death in the family. The staff was very helpfull, courteous and friendly. Breakfast with Gloria B was always great, super friendly, she kept it clean and stocked and would always engage my 10 month old son. My overall experience was really great, the room was kept clean and all my needs were always met.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss, and I am so glad that you were still able to have an enjoyable experience at our facility through your difficult times. I am glad you loved the breakfast and hope that in the near future you are once again able to come to Fort Myers with your child and appreciate all of the fun family events that our county has to offer.

We thank you for your business, and all of your positive comments. Our sincerest thoughts are with you and your family throughout your grieving process. Your time spent in acknowledging your experience at our facility has not gone unnoticed.

Thank you so much for reviewing our location! I am glad you chose our facility for your business travel needs. I hope you had a chance to use our great business center and don't forget to ask about one of our spacious suites the next time you need a place to spread out that also is large and private enough to host an informal meeting.

Clean room, very comfortable bed, clean pool, minimal traffic noise from the freeway. Nice clean pool and functioning fitness equipment (more often than not the gym equipment at hotels is broken), and a really good breakfast. The in room coffee has to be made one cup at a time, which is a pain and there was no creamer and sugar - but that wasn't a big deal since coffee was available in the lobby.

Thank you for your great review on our location, I am sorry you were not provided with enough creamer/sugar for your coffee. I do understand your point of the coffee being one cup at a time, the reason for that is ensure our guests experience having the freshest coffee possible at all times! If you are one of those fast coffee drinkers, I realize that it can be frustrating when you need that extra caffeine (like I do to start my day) or multiple guests needing coffee. I will note all of your feedback, and we look forward to seeing you the next time you are in our area! We appreciate your business.

I stayed there for a weekend getaway in one of the suites with a spa tub. Very relaxing! The staff at the front desk was very friendly and the housekeeping did a nice job....right down to straightening my shoes for me. It's the little touches at this hotel that makes it a win for me. Will definitely stay again.

Thank you for your review on our hotel! We always try to exceed guests expectations but until we receive comments such as yours, never have 100% confirmation that we are doing that. I am glad you had a positive experience and hopefully we will see you again then next time you are in this area, and we will reserve one of those comfy jacuzzi suites for you once more!! I will be sure to pass on to our housekeeping staff your kind words and thank them for your level of service.
