“Location but that is all”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

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.

My husband and I stayed in the executive king room and I must say it was very nice our room over looked the pool the room was very clean I could not complain, check in was easy very nice front desk workers. The pool is huge I was shocked very nice and clean has a towel station and their is a hot tub, they also have ping pong which was fun. the location is perfect not even five minutes to sanibel the outlet mall is right across the street and publix is next door. The price was awesome great deal you get a lot for your money here even free breakfast. I would highly recommend this hotel good price, great location, nice staff.

This hotels is an awesome place to stay. The rooms are not overly fancy but roomy enough, Bathrooms were very clean, all staff were excellent, pool was crystal clear and clean. Its great for anyone taking a vacation and just wants to have a central place to sleep and relax seeing that most people are going to be sight seeing and hitting the beaches ect...Very centrally located to Ft. Meyers beach(maybe 10-15min depending on traffic), 15 min from the rsw airport, and close to Cape coral and Sanibil island. My husband and I just wanted somewheres comfortable to stay after our day trips out and this place is perfect.. High thumbs up!

We stayed in an executive king room at La Quinta Ft. Myers for two nights. This was my first time at a La Quinta and I would say it met my expectations. The outside of the hotel is just okay but the rooms were actually very nice. They were clean and pretty new looking. If you plan on utilizing the pull out sofa, know that it is probably the size of a double bed. It is right next to the king size bed its not separated at all. We stayed at this hotel primarily because of the location. We visited Sanibel, Jet blue park, and Fort Myers beach during our stay- all within a reasonable distance 10-20 minutes. There is also outlet about a half mile away. The breakfast was descent- cereal, yogurt, bagels, and waffles. If you are looking to bounce around the area and a reasonable rate I would definitely recommend.

Stayed here in lieu of Sanibel to save money. Nice pool area, attentive staff. Only downside is lack of restaurants within walking distance. Nice and quiet in spite of a motel full of spring breakers.
