“Nice place”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

Convenient to Sanibel and Ft Myers Beach. Room was very clean. Beds were comfortable. Great looking pool and hot tub. The service desk was helpful. Plenty of parking was available. Check in was quick and easy. Only slight negative was a fairly slow elevator.

This is a motel style hotel (in other words the room access is from the outside) - which gives additional opportunity for bugs in the rooms -- which we dealt with our entire stay.
We had one day that house keeping didn't even clean our room (nor the rooms next to ours - I heard them complaining too) - when we complained to the desk, they were very apathetic about the issue.
The location of the hotel is great - with easy access to both Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach (although during peak vacation time, getting to Fort Myers Beach you will fight a lot of traffic).
They have a great pool area too.
The continental breakfast is pretty minimal - DIY waffles, cold cereal, hot instant oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, fruit.

My daughter and I stayed at the La Quinta Sanibel Gateway for four nights last week. The rooms were nice, bed very comfortable, very good location, and a wonderful pool. Breakfast could have been a little better but as it was complimentary it was fine. Would definitely stay there again!

My wife and I stayed 7 nights while on business in Ft. Myers. This is an older property, but it was well kept and very comfortable. Our room was cleaned everyday while we were out. The breakfast was very adequate, with fresh local citrus served daily. It's in a convenient location to Sanibel, Captiva and Ft. Myers Beach as well as close enough to downtown, but off the beaten path a little. I had a slight issue with the layout of the shower...no flat places to put soap or shampoo, but other than that, we were very happy.

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.
