“Cheap hotel great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

First time being in the area, I wanted to go to Sanibel Island but not pay the prices to stay there. Tip top hotel was a great location, small but did the job, it was clean. We only stayed for a night. Did a mini fishing on the dock late at night since they have a marina, even enjoy a little pool time. It's off a busy road but Didnt bother me at all when I was in the room. I would say they need wider curtains. But I would stay there again.

We had a room on the 1st floor next to the road. We experiented a lot of noise during both nights. Traffic, A/C, fan in bathroom, refrigetator roaring every 20 min. Besides that the room was ok. The staff was friendly and the motel had a small self service laundry.

Super clean suite at a great price! Bus to the beach across the road five day pass for $3.00. Very good bar food right next store and a gourmet grocery and wine shop within walking distance. Great sea food less than a mile away
Well equipped kitchen with full size frig. Small tables on the balcony to enjoy morning coffee or night time wine. Staff is friendly and helpful, but only on site until 8 pm.
Cons no beach chairs or beach towels

Room Tip: Ask for the second floor closer to the marina than the highway on the office side.

We reserved a boat for july 2nd but the weather was terrible. We called that morning to reschedule and the manger was very understanding and willing to work with us to reschedule (at no cost) We ended up rescheduling for the 4th. When we arrived i remembered this place from years past as Ashely Oaks.. let me tell you there is NOTHING that resembles that place. Everything is clean, pool looks great, outside is spotless. Back to the rental. The boat is exactly what i expected out of a rental boat.. we did have a mechanical issue, however the boat idled and ran fine so we did not call or bring it back, and we did not ask for any refund. basically it would not get on plane, but worked just fine for trolling the back bay. On a side note, they tell you that it is $5.00 a gallon if you fill up at their dock, and they even recommend several other marinas to fill up at, but they don't tell you they charge you for the oil to mix in the gas. which was another $8.00.. again not a big deal but would have liked to know, and at 4.85 a gallon at other marinas $6.00(with oil) is not a bad deal to not have to deal with the gas traffic at another dock. Overall this was an enjoyable day, the family had fun and we returned safe. the staff is extremely friendly, accommodating and said they will have that boat looked at and fixed right away and i believe that they will.. The Tip Top Isle/ boat rentals is a nice little inn to anyone wanting to have a hassle free vacation.

My husband and I had the guest suite. It consisted of a living area, a small dining table, and a TV. We also had a very well equipped kitchen. There was a separate bedroom with a small air conditioner and a TV. Both beds were queen size. The rooms were very clean and spacious. We stayed there because we were scheduled to go on the Key West Express boat to travel to Key West the next morning and the boat dock was only about a mile and a half away from the motel. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. We were given extra pillows as my husband needed them for his back to help him sleep due to his condition. I just loved this place and will be going back again soon. I agree that there is some noise on San Carlos Blvd. but did not have any trouble sleeping. Very reasonably priced as well. Great restaurants nearby.

Clean and spacious room for a great price! Met up with our friends staying in a resort on Fort Meyers Beach a short distance a way during spring break - the price for their accomodations were triple our cost so we were very grateful. I imagine at other times of the year the traffic is better and the commute could take less time. Staff was very friendly and most accomodating - we discovered once we got home that we left some items under the sink in the bathroom and the manager is shipping it to us! Thank you, we would stay here again!

Room Tip: Street traffic is noisy - might want to request a room further from the street if this would bother...

Wonderful place to stay. Clean, large rooms. Staff very friendly and accomodating. Located on a canal with boat rentals available. Rates were 4hrs for $99. Stay two nights or more and get free use of kayaks.
Continental breakfast at the office. The only draw back was the noise from San Carlos Blvd. We didn't have the AC on and slept with the window opened so I would assume that was why it was noisy. (DA)

Great restaurant next door.... Bayside Grille.

Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I liked the ground level.
