Overall this hotel was fine. The room was exactly what was shown on their website. The breakfast was standard for this kind of hotel however they did add a little something to the eggs each day for variety. The evening meals were good (the kind of food you would eat at home) and salad was always available with them. The location is quiet and there is not much noise between rooms (except the bathrooms). The airconditioner was very loud so we ran it in the day and shut it off at bedtime.

The location also provides easy access to local highways and the freeway. It was a good location as a base for our activities but the beach was a half hour drive when traffic was good. Because the beaches are on the outlying barrier islands with restricted traffic flows, it can be very slow getting on or off the islands. This wouldn't be a good location if all you wanted to do was go to the beach.

Shoeless Joe’s next door was good for a drink or meal and while the food was fine at Cantina Laredo the atmosphere was sterile and uninviting and the drinks were really expensive. There are several other restaurants nearby. The mall is mostly upscale shops but a nice place for a walk. There is a Fresh Market in the mall which also catered to the upscale clientele.

The hotel actually had two issues.

The first was the outdoor dining area only had two large (around 8 person) resin tables. This was great for large groups or the long term residents who hung out together. However there was no place for a couple or small family to sit outside and enjoy their meal or beverage.

The other big issue was that smoking is allowed everywhere in the outdoor spaces. Even if one of the big tables was available they smelled of smoke which doesn’t do much for my appetite. Every place at the hotel with somewhere to sit and enjoy Florida had an ashtray beside it including the pool and hot tub.

If you spend most of your evenings out walking or in your room, or if you’re a smoker or you are not sensitive to cigarette smoke, this would be a great place for you.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the stairwells, the doors are very load when the close.

Ample refrigeration, good cooktop, spacious, excellent sleeping, near most attractions; this place is a gem. Daily (free) breakfast; weeknight (free) buffet dinner; every staffer gives you the time of day greeting "good morning, etc).
This is where we will stay for all future spring training trips. JetBlue Park (Fenway South) and Hammond Stadium (Twins fans friendliest) minutes away and the Bell Tower complex is a huge and varied food, shopping, and entertainment area.
Best Fort Myers stay ever.

Room Tip: First floor most convenient

We have stayed in many places but this Homewood Suites was far and away the best of the best. This was our first stay and we found the accommodations as well as the staff to be excellent. The rooms are really spacious and well arranged. The place was full of guests and we had a room pool side, however the room was so quiet, we couldn't get over it. I am a very light sleeper and didn't hear a sound. The breakfast included was a full breakfast that was great. We didn't get a chance to have the light dinners, but will certainly stay again and try this out too!

We have been staying at Homewood Sutes in Ft. Meyers for several years. The entire staff is very accommodating and always friendly Donna, Leo, Carlos (maintanance) and all of the staff are excellent!!! . It's like coming home every year when we get there
The only reason we don't give this property "excellent" is that it could use some referbishing and new mattresses. The food this year was the best ever!. I hope we can repeat our three weeks for many more years!!

Room Tip: We love the rooms that have a Pool Door!

We have been coming to this hotel since 2001. The atmosphere is a home one! Spent 2 1/2 months here just recently. Everyone from Lee the manager, Kim Alberto the F & B Supervisor as well as her staff, Carlos and Daniel were terrific. Front desk staff, as well as Maintenance staff including Carlos and Craig did an excellent job with our needs. Our housekeeping staff as well always was there for us.... Special thank-you to front desk Kristin for phoning me with an important message! We will be back next year for a month again!

I stay at the Homewood Suites whenever traveling to Ft Myers. The staff is exceptional and the accomodations are great. The pool area is so relaxing...you would never realize you are so close to a major road and shopping mall.
Lee, the General Manager is very accommodating..as is Donna on the Front Desk.
Pablo is relatively new...but was so welcoming and sincere in his ensuring we were always helped. Craig from Engineering was awesome. He did everything from take us on the shuttle to help us with checking out.
Thanks for making our family vacation so enjoyable!!

We traveled to Fort Myers for spring training for our son's college baseball team. This hotel is situated basically on the outskirts of a mall. It's in a quiet location and centrally located to just about any activity you are interested in doing. There is an excellent, wholesome breakfast in the morning and on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, there is a welcome home reception (enough food to cover dinner and alcoholic beverages if you so desire). Our room was made up early every morning. We were very pleased with our stay at this hotel and would not hesitate to return there in the future.
