5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

This was our 2nd time staying here and we love this place. Location is excellent, room is clean, view is awesome, staff was wonderful with all our requests. I can't say enough good things about this place! We had our 10 yr old daughter and her friend with us and we have company visit us twice with no problems from the staff. We will be coming back again!

We just came back from an almost three week trip in Florida with our ten year old grandson. We started in Orlando, drove to Fort Myers, on to Key West and then returned up the Atlantic Coast to get on a Disney Cruise. The five days that we spent at EBH were really my husband and my favorite part of this trip. We spent five days here and its was so wonderful to sit on our porch in the morning and night...one night was so magical as people were setting off little gas lit balloons to the night sky which we sat and watched until we could see them no longer. We loved walking along the beach to dinner, getting up early to look for shells. It was all just perfect and I was so glad that we did not stay in Sanibel which had been my first choice....but now I think it would have been too quiet. Staying near more of the action in Fort Myers Beach was perfect for us. It was great to be able to set off when we left with all of our clothes clean thanks to the washers and dryers. The 7-11 across the street allowed us to get some quick breakfast items. We took the Key West Express to Key West from here which was a perfect plan if you want to visit there......we had no trouble getting a taxi in the early am to take us to the dock and then, after two nights in Key West, we rented a car to drive up the keys and north. We would return here in a heartbeat....if we did not live in California!! It was extremely hot and humid when we were there and is air conditioned with wall units......it worked but was a little noisy.....that little negative did not impact our experience.

Best of this hotel is its location as it is two blocks from everything there is to see in Fort Myers Beach (restaurants, the pier, 7/11). The property is on the beach, you can see the ocean from any of the rooms. They clean the beach area in front of the hotel every morning and the beach is just a hop away. Apartments were very clean and service from the front desk was personal and attentive to details (you get to pick the brand of soap you want!). Apartments are fully equipped with everything you will need during the stay, just buy food at the local super market and you can fully cook (if this is something you want to do). Two cons: 1. the decoration of our apartment was old looking with furniture that looks cheap and outdated 2. our apartment did not have central A/C and the bedroom A/C units were a little noisy. Overall, this is an excellent option in FMB is you are traveling with friends and/or family, planning on going for a weekend or a week, and want a fully equipped apartment.

We just returned from Ft Myers Beach and stayed at the Edison House. The location is great, walk to everything in Ft Myers. It was very clean, the staff was helpful. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of space. The kitchen was just right for that situation - and also there is washer and dryer. Great value. I would definitely stay there again.

This is my 11th or 12th stay at EBH and it is always been the best place to stay on the beach. From front desk check in all the way till check out it has been an excellent vacation there. Any time I need something extra ask a housekeeper and I get it. The housekeeping staff go out of there way to make sure the rooms are super clean and you have everything you need. The front desk staff do everything to make your stay comfortable. Thank you Marlene and Lisa. There is no way I can say anything negative about EBH. I have stayed in many hotels over many years and this is the best. I cannot wait to come back but I want to stay longer the 8 nights. Keep up your fantastic work EBH stall.

The Edison Beach House was an excellent place to park ourselves for a week. Having laundry and a full kitchen made staying on the beach enjoyable since we were full of salt water every day and did LOTS of laundry. The staff were exceptionally friendly and professional. The rooms are furnished with just about anything you would need down to needles and thread even a stapler! Since it's right on the Gulf of Mexico the daystime views are fantastic and the sunsets unreal. The beach is groomed each and every day. If there was a concern the maintenance was there in a very short time. Loved it!!

Room Tip: We loved the full front view of the Gulf; however, the rooms that are back a bit further are also ve...

Air conditioning inadequate. The water pressure was barely existent. Great location, lots of nice touches but air and water ruined our experience. We really enjoyed walking to the bars and restaurants, but the temperature in the room was uncomfortable.
