My family stayed here over Christmas (I know, I'm sorry it took so long to write this review), but I felt it was worth writing. We stayed in a few places throughout Florida (Naples, Clearwater, and Orlando)... this place was by far the worst hotel and it was also the most expensive. When we called to book a room, we were quoted one price, but when we checked in, they told us the price was higher and it was their policy to raise the price (I didn't deal with this directly, but this is what I understand was the problem... in any case, it didn't sit well with me).
The room wasn't anything horrible, but it wasn't great either (see pics of the bathroom that needs some attention).
Pros (or at least not completely horrible):
The beds were comfortable enough.
The fridge was nice to have.
The room size was big for 4 adults.
The pool area was nice and the location of the hotel was really ideal to walk to the main part of Ft. Myers Beach (which in itself was kind of run down and disappointing.. maybe because it was winter?). The beach was nice.
For an old shower, the pressure wasn't too bad and the water was nice and hot.
The A/C unit was a bit loud and it rattled a bit too much.
The whole check-in scandal.
The room had a musky odor to it (even for a non-smoking room).
Key access was a regular key instead of a card access (less secure in my book).
Bathroom was in need of some rehab.. rusty and grimey (bring your own shampoo, conditioner and hair dryer... none of these are provided).
Overall we survived the stay, but I was happy to move on to a new place. I'm still ticked off at the whole price check-in thing.. buyer beware!
