This is not a beachfront establishment. No view of the water but only a 2 minute walk and your on the beach. The place is extremely dated, 1970's called, they want their motel back. The double beds were rickety with obviously older spring mattresses. The décor is "vintage." Our TV had blown speakers. Our room was on the bottom floor... More

My wife and I like to come here when we have a free day. The place is comfy, near the beach, with a friendly staff. While it's not a high end place, we enjoy the people who stay there as well as the friendly staff. It's a clean, we'll kept get away, which we enjoy.

We had the pleasure of staying at this great little place in Fort Myers Beach. It has about 20 rooms, is a VERY short walk to the beach and has a great pool.

I stayed for 4 nights with my 21 year old granddaughter. The coffee put out by 8AM and delicious was a nice wake up. Staff couldn't be nicer and gave tips on nearby places to eat.

Unfortunately we stayed only 1 night there as a stopover. This hotel was fantastic. The room was nothing fancy but really cool. A big frigde into, free coffee in the morning, direct pool access, walk to the wonderful beach was approximately 2 minutes and last but not least free parking.

We've stayed here twice now, once in the two bedroom and this time in the one bedroom. Both are very nicely decorated, very comfortable furnishings. Full size appliances in the kitchens made cooking and cleanup great. There's a very nice private pool for use by guests at the condos; just great for those days when you don't want to be... More
