Beacon Motel
Ranked #45 of 47 Hotels in Fort Myers Beach
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We stayed at this place for one night, and I am glad we only had to stay there for one night.
Extremely noisy at night from the bars nearby. Extremely noisy in the early morning because of the pickup trucks. Won't stay here ever again.
The property has direct access to the beach, which is a plus. Close to Time Square. Good for people like to have late night drinking.
The room and facilities are very basic, but very clean. Nothing unpleasant in terms of the room.

A pleasant place in a fabulous location, right on the beach.
Not 'luxury' but honest value and a very pleasant staff, particularly Lyndsey, who made every effort to see that I had the room I wanted.
Would not hesitate to revisit at some stage

The hotel is old and the remodeling could have been done a little bit better, but to stay in a 2 bedroom suite in the heart of Ft. Myers beach it is well worth it. We were able to get a room for under $100, try that anywhere else for a suite. If you want to enjoy the nightlife this is the place to be, if you are looking to read a book and enjoy a quiet night not the place for you, plain and simple. We will make this a regular place to stay when we want a night out on the town.

With all the stress in life we decided to hop in the truck and head down to Ft Myers on a Frideay morning just for an over night get away. When arriving the place we thought we would stay was disappointing so we started looking and found The Beacon, we stopped in they had one room left with a king size bed we took it and had the best 24 hour get away the room was very clean, bed very comfortable and the Manager and her daughters where as nice as they good be so we decided to come back for a 3 days wkend during the Shrimp Festival can't wait to get there.

I have stayed here numerous times over 30 years growing up. The first time that I took my 3 young kids alone our plane was delayed. The lobby closed at 10 and our flight would not get us there until 12:00 so I called. They said what room number to go to and they would unlock it for us and to just check in in the morning. We got there at 1:00 am and was so grateful to have a room unlocked, lamp light turned on and a key for us. Where do you see that anymore? Beacon is great for kids as you just walk out of your room to the beach. Don't have to deal with elevators and busy hotels. There are rafts and boards for you to use. Staff is very friendly and helpful and clean rooms. Take the trolley to the grocery store. Our room just had fridge and microwave but we bought deli food and heated up or sandwiches to save on the cost of food.
