“A quiet getaway led by nice people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

We were looking for a quiet place at the Gulf of Mexico and got exactly what we wanted: nice, clean rooms (thanx, Marina!) and a staff which was helpful anytime (thanx, Lisa and Penny! Marlene, get well soon!). When we were talking to other guests in ft. myers beach they all paid more and got less. Even the residents who stumbled into us in the tiki bar at the lighthouse resort a few blocks away told us we made a clever choice. The white beach has been cleaned every morning, the pool was small, but nice. The EBH is in walking distance from the cheap restaurants in ft. myers beach if you want a "normal" lunch/dinner, you´ll find a 7/11 (24/7) across the street. Only 30 minutes to the malls/outlets if you wanna go shopping or relax on the beautiful islands Sanibel/Captiva (check out the Bubble Room and the Mucky Duck). This place is also very family friendly as we met quite a few there (from the US as well as Europe). Nothing to complain about. J & A (Soest/Germany)

Room Tip: Get a two room apartment, the fridge and the ac in the one room are a little bit loud for European e...

We were just there for 5 days with 2 kids. The location is perfect. Close enough to the action, but the evening was still quiet for the children to sleep comfortably. We enjoyed the beach toys available for the kids and the pool was the perfect temperature. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

Upon arrival they had gifts for my kids, popcorn for the microwave, friendly staff that went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed and a super clean room. Throughout our stay they were wonderful and accommodating to our every need. The hotel is located near the pier, walking distance to shops and ice cream stores.

If I go back to Ft Myers beach I will definitely be staying at Edison Beach House. It was an outstanding experience.

Room Tip: there are only 4 floors with 7 rooms each. All the rooms are nice

Perfect location and the suites were really nice. They have full size appliances and a dishwasher and get this, washer and dryer :-) They even supply the coffee filters, dishwashing powder and laundry detergent. What more could you ask for? It was so nice to get up in the morning and not have to leave the suite to get breakfast. We sat on the balcony a lot to look at the awesome views and we could sit on the bed and view the gulf. This was also one of those places where, when we got there, it was exactly like the photios online. We've all been to those places where the actual place does not resemble the photos online, but this is not one of them. Also, they have the friendliest, most helpful staff. As I said, we loved it here and will be staying here again next year.

Thank you for the great review. All of the staff at the Edison Beach really appreciate that our guests enjoy the service we provide. We also like to provide every amenity that our guest could need, leaving the our guests to be able to focus on relaxing and getting a nice tan. Our location is the best on the beach. A short 2 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants but still quit at night. We believe that the only pictures that should be posted online about us should be real pictures. There is nothing worse than renting a hotel room based on online pictures that deceive customers. That is why we only post real up to date pictures of our property.

My wife and I have stayed here in late February and early March for the last five years. Nothing but the best in all our stays. Staff treats us like family, and the owner Larry is the nices person you could ever meet. Really makes the Kentucky winters bearable. Just made my 2015 reservations. I have to say the worst part is packing up to head back home.

Room Tip: The pierside room view over looking the Lynn Hall Memorial Park was most entertaining.

My wife and I stayed here for just one night this last weekend. It was fabulous. We stayed in a Studio Suite on the 5th floor. Great view of the Gulf, Times Square and the Pier. The room was marvelous with a very nice bed, a full kitchen and a fantastic balcony. Very relaxing and wonderful getaway. The best was the service, incredible front desk, very nice people all around. Offered additional coffee to us and a choice of soaps for the bath. Really above and beyond. I highly recommend the Edison Beach House and we will definitely be back soon for a weekend getaway to enjoy the property for a longer time.

Room Tip: All of the rooms have a Gulf View.

This is our second time staying at EBH. We had a two bedroom suite. It was just as wonderful as it was two years ago when we went. We ate in our room for every meal (Publix is about 2 miles down the road), which help financially being a family of 5. The rooms were clean, roomy, comfortable and inviting. Our favorite part is the poo/beach set up. While sitting by the pool, you are only feet away from the beach which makes you feel as though you are still a part of both. The beach is only steps away, which makes it nice to easily go back and forth. The pool is a little on the small side, but it doesn't fill up to much which our kids liked. We love that the pier/Times Square is only minutes away too. There are live bands, street performers, plenty of ice cream shops and beach shops too. We definitely plan to go back next summer!

Thank you for the great comments. Our location is one of our best features. Located directly on the beach you can swim in the ocean and in less than a minute you can be swimming in our pool. Having the shops and restaurants close by are a real convenience too. We look forward to seeing you next summer.
