We stayed here for 4 nights because we made travel plans at the last minute and hotels on the beach were booked. We have stayed at La Qunita in other areas and had a good experience. Not so at this one. First the good - it is close to both Sanibel and Ft. Myers Beach. That is all.
This is an old motel, rooms facing the parking lot, one elevator for a 3 story building. The rooms are worn and need major renovation. The only nice feature is the ability to drive somewhere else quickly. Our room had several holes in the ceiling and walls that had been poorly patched. The bathroom is worse, broken fixtures, noisy plumbing.
There is no service. They apparently only clean the rooms when someone checks out. We only had housekeeping come in the room one day out of three. They come by at 4 pm and give you some towels, that is it. You can hear everything going on in the adjoining rooms. We got up early and went to the beach every day so we only had to regret the accommodations when we came back at night.
There is no business center so if you need to use a computer to check email or print boarding passes you are out of luck. I can't remember staying at a place that didn't have this available.
The breakfast area is setup as a bar but there isn't any service for it. I guess at one time they served drinks at the bar but no longer. The breakfast offering is typical for interstate motels and the one time we sat in it to eat they were out of most items at 8 am. We had to ask them to restock which they did. The coffee is served in an old coffee machine that looks like it is leftover from the 60s. It tasted like instant coffee mixed with hot water.
