“Location Great, Rooms need Help”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2007

No one could argue, the location on Fort Myers Beach is great, how could it not be? The grounds are nice, as well as most of the staff, Thanks Kevin, Dick, and Queenie! Joy at the front desk Clearly stands out as Not part of the positive attributes the hotel has to offer. Breakfast is great providing the elderly man is there. Don't bother if the housekeeping staff is in charge. The rooms do need TLC, Non working bathroon fan, lights without proper coverings, rooms without any decor, greasy dust on cabinets, tv's not receiving reception, blood stained sheets, broken down pillows, cockroaches, poorly stocked kichens, loosely mounted cooking units, yes some of these are Florida hotel violations. I'm not sure who is in charge of regulating the pool temperature but TURN IT DOWN when it is warm outside. This hotel is rated 2 ** that is a generous rating.

  • Liked — the beach
  • Disliked — attitude Joy had and safety violations room had

My husband, 5 year old son and I stayed at this property at the end of October, 2006. The hotel website and other travel sites said that the property was sold out. I called the hotel directly and they had rooms available with a cheaper rate ($99-$119 weekday/weekend). The room and property is very clean. The only complaint we have is the pool is too small. The ocean in Fort Myers is very green and murky with a lot of seaweed on the beach so we used the pool much more. Make the trip to Sanibel and Captiva Islands. The shells are awesome. The mime on the bike at Times Square is hilarious. Overall the trip to Fort Myers is a good one especially for families.

My sister, brother-in-law and myself stayed for 6 nights 10-1 to 10-7, 2006. The hotel was very clean, loved our oceanfront room with balcony, staff at front desk were wonderful, housekeeping was magnificent. no problems at all. They had a wonderful continental breakfast each morning which we enjoyed outside in the beach chairs or under the thatched hut. Their pool was very clean, the grounds maintained every day. Nice flowers and bushes. We loved seeing "Coco" the parrot in the lobby every day.

Overall, we could not have picked a better place and would recommend this hotel to anyone. We would love to go back someday.

This was my very first trip to Florida and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The prices were GREAT. The rooms are clean and well maintained. Every staff member was kind and so eager to help in any way needed. The view was fabulous. The room ammenities were wonderful. The beach, pool and outdoor areas were very well maintained. We were close to stores and restautrants. I traveled with my best friend on this trip and I am already planning a family trip next year with my children and grandchildren and wouldn't consider staying anywhere else but the Best Western.

From the moment we checked in, we were made to feel at home and welcome here. One of the easiest check-in's we've had. The lobby was clean and inviting; the grounds beautifully landscaped, and the room light, airy and very clean. My husband was impressed with the extra clean bathroom, fluffy towels and very comfy bed. The bathroom was small but adequate. There was a nice kitchen (which we didn't need) with a full size refrigerator, microwave, dishes, etc. Would be great for families with kids, or folks who like to have some meals in the room. We spent a lot of time on our ocean front balcony (all rooms oceanfront), and sitting in the spacious lawn chairs under dozens of majestic coconut palms. The night lighting on the palms was an awesome sight....they don't have lights on the balconies or the beach, so you can sit and enjoy the sounds and sights of the gulf without being blinded. There are facilities for cooking out or piicnicking under the tikki huts, as well as a lovely pool and assorted other activities. Two newspapers are at your door each morning. The continental breakfast is so-so....pastries and fruits, coffee, juices. If you want a substantial breakfast, there are restaurants within walking distance at Times Square. Two restaurants we enjoyed for dinner were "The Bridge" and "Snug Harbor"...both waterfront, both feature fresh seafood, both nearby. We are early diners and were pleased that both these restaurants offer Early Bird Specials.....

The hotel seems to have an extensive staff that was always working mowing, blowing, trimming, watering. The place looked well loved and cared for.

The fishing pier is nearby, and there are little shops and restaurants surrounding it.

Fort Myers Beach in general was "seedier" than we remembered. Lots of construction, renovation, changes going on. They, like Tybee Island in Georgia, seem to have gotten greedy. Everywhere you go you pay $5 to $9 to park.....they want your tourist dollars, but seemed to be trying to make us feel unwelcome. You get a parking pass at the hotel, and the restaurants do have some free parking.(if you know where to look) We just walked a lot.

September was a great time to go....prices are lower, less crowding, and the weather was knock-down gorgeous! (We had an awesome bright rainbow out over the gulf one morning that stayed a good 30 minutes. Glorious! If Ft Myers is in your plans, be sure and check this hotel.

  • Liked — hospitality, views, cleanliness
  • Disliked — smallish bathroom
  • Tips/Secrets — book direct with hotel, ask for "best rate"

My hustband and I stayed here for an end-of-summer long weekend. The pictures on the web-site don't lie. The lobby is beautiful but it's the rest of the hotel that really counts. We are not smokers but had to stay in a smoking room because we took our dog. There was very little odor of smoke in the room - almost unnoticeable, and the room was very nice, comfortable, and well- equipped. We had a fabulous view that made that kept us drawn to the window. Breakfast was more than adequate and staffed by a very friendly gentleman. The grassy area under the palms with the adirondack chairs was a great place to unwind. It was great to swim in the pool without leaving sight of the beach. The beach had a lot of seaweed on it and it would have been nice if it had been raked a low tide but that still didn't spoil the experience. Restaurants and shopping are nearby and you can walk to many of those places. We would definitely return to stay again.

Stayed August 2006
