“Great value - beautiful surroundings!”
Reviewed March 4, 2010

This place was GREAT for the price. It's not for party animals, it's a retirement resort but my husband and I (in our mid 20s) loved it for a quiet time. Rooms are average, need some updating, but for $50/night you cant beat it! Minutes from several beaches and lovely surroundings on the grounds. We would wake up, get cofffee and walk the grounds - you see manatees and dolphins in the early am, definitely worth getting up at 5!! So beautiful and quiet, we truly enjoyed just relaxing here.

Reviewed August 24, 2009

The Guest House is located in the gated Shell Point retirement community. The community is AWESOME with a marina, community garden, orchid greenhouse, small beach, woodshop, model train exhibit, salon/spa, pool table, library, gym, swimming pool, gift shop of residents' handmade crafts, shuffleboard courts, walking trail, transit, cafe and fine dining restaurant. The Guest House is a typical two-story block building with standard motel rooms. The staff and residents are very welcoming. The location is great - just before the causeway to Sanibel and a few minutes to downtown Ft Myers or Ft Myers Beach. The community is very quiet so if you're looking for a relaxing place to stay this is it. The streets roll-up around 9pm so if you're a partier or have wild kids this probably isn't the place for you. We're 30-somethings and really enjoyed our stay.
