“Comfortable, after a long drive...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

This property was reserved for us by another travel companion. We were able to get a restful night's sleep once we got a room that was suitable. The first room we were given had not been completely cleaned by the housekeeping staff. I think it was a simple tagging mistake, but it did take us a little extra effort to get into our room. The front desk staff was very apologetic, and was very quick in getting the issue resolved.

Renovation of the fourth and the third floors are complete and nicely done. The room was nicely appointed. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Would recommend this motel for those who want to visit the Edison & Ford estate. Breakfast was delicious, and Ally the waitress was friendly and helpful.

The coupon for the menu order breakfast went a long with the price. Don't forget to ask for the $20 coupon.

What a totally unexpected find. Excellent service. Clean updated rooms. Efficient room service with delicious food. This is a throw back to the way Holiday Inns were run when I was a kid in the sixties. HIGHLY recommend this property.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Fort Myers Downtown Historic on a trip through Florida. It was not what I would consider Historic Downtown. The location was not that great. They are currently under renovations so I am sure they will be updating things. The room was a good size. The shower had a nice big shelf for our shampoo, conditioner, etc. The bad part about the shower was that it had a partial glass shower door & a shower curtain for the back part. The water just poured out onto the floor. We had to use all of our towels to soak it up. The HVAC unit was extremely loud & woke us up throughout the night. It would not keep the room at a constant temperature. We traveled with our 2 Yorkies. They are pet friendly however there were not any marked areas to walk your pet & no pet clean-up station so you can imagine the rest! I did like that the room we were in was tiled. That is much cleaner than carpet when staying in pet rooms. Overall the hotel was average. We did not deal with the hotel staff other than at check-in & they were fairly friendly. We would probably chose a better location next time we are in Fort Myers.

I stayed in this hotel after a family get-together in Sanibel. Worried having read other reviews, I was very pleasantly surprised. The staff were all extremely pleasant, especially Jen at the front desk and the waitress in the Grille. All went out of their way to make our stay special and we felt very welcome. It is on the main road, which is unattractive, however we got the free shuttle to the "historic" part of town - a five minute drive at most - downtown is full of eclectic stores and outdoor cafes (again with super pleasant staff). There is also the waterfront with a small marina. The hotel room was clean, beds comfortable and the pool area lovely. Thanks Holiday Inn staff:)

The hotel itself is not too bad, I've been stuck in much worse. Unfortunately the surrounding area is terrible. If this is "Historic Fort Meyers", they have a LOT of work to do.

The staff was very accomodating as we had to change rooms to get a different bedding configuration after check in. One of the few bright spots of the stay.

The room was fairly clean, with some updating. The Dunkin Donuts next door was handy.

There is NO reason to stay in this part of town. Look elsewhere.

Had to be one of the worst hotels I stayed at in Flordia. First when I checked in they gave me a occupied room. Next when we were sleeping our neighbors decided to start fighting at about 2am. After listening to this for about 30 min we called the front desk, which they tried to get them to settle. that went on for about another hour. But then oh no this doesn't end about 3 am there was a pool party to which our window was right next to. Called the front desk again to complain, and they said that it was ok for them to be in the pool (screaming) at 3 am. We got up and checked out because our plane was leavimg at 630 am. No apologies no nothing. This hotel is not for people that want to sleep at night. Will not be back.
