I reserved the room a month in advance, then called on the morning of arrival to confirm the reservation. I was told everything was good. I did not arrive until that night at 10:00 PM. The desk clerk gave me my room key and when I got in the room I realized it was QQ instead of the K I reserved. I went back to the office and told her this was not what I had reserved. She said that's all that was available. She said my room had been given to someone with the same name. My name is Labonte -how many of those have you seen running around? Strike One.
The next morning I found the manager at 0930. I asked her what had happened, she told me my room had been given away "by mistake". I said okay. I told her I did not want any room service because I was leaving the room and I have a small dog I did not want frightened with maid service. The manger informed me that it was hotel policy that I had to have room service. The floors must be vacuumed every day. She continued to explain to me the dog had to be in a kennel or in the bathroom while I was away. This was not the policy when I had previously stayed there last year. Strike Two.
I asked the manager what time housekeeping would begin. She said 10:30. She volunteered to clean my room first or last. I asked her to do it first as I had an appointment at 12:00. She said no problem, the room would be first and I could leave the dog in the room, just be sure to bring a kennel next time. At 11:15 I went to the office to see what the progress was, she said to call her if someone was not there in 5-10 minutes. At 11:35 I went back to the office and asked where everyone was at, the Manager did not know. I reminded her that I had to be across town at 12:00. She told me to go, that I would get no service. So I spent all morning at the hotel accomplishing nothing instead of going to the beach as planned. Strike Three.
On a positive note, the staff was courteous. The hot water was plentiful and the showerheads were of the "big, sunflower" type. The pool appeared nice from a distance and the rooms were recently redone. They were clean and the beds were decent.
The only other concern I had was the neighborhood. I would advise being aware of your sorroundings at all times.
All in all, a decent place for the money, I just won't be back because of the pet policy. Most of the time, when we come to Ft. Myers the only reason we get a hotel room for two nights is because we need a place for our dog to be safe and comfortable while we are at the beach.
P.S. I payed for my room with my personal card and I still have to see if my business card was charged for the reservation that was given away.
