Stayed 2 nights with 2 grandchildren. Very clean, great seafood restaurant attached and Ihop breakfast included in price of room. A bit of noise from nearby busy highway but would definitely return for another stay. Good location just outside of downtown Ft. Myers. Beautiful sunsets viewed from river view room location.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 30 December 2016

My Husband and I recently stayed at the Best Western Fort Myers Waterfront while visiting the area. Although our room was not quite ready upon our arrival (we were extremely early), it was well worth the wait. Upon check-in the Front Desk personnel were very helpful and quite pleasant. Our room was pleasantly quite large, had a huge bathroom and...

The rooms all share a terrific view of the river. They are comfortable and well equipped with reasonable rates. The balconies are a pleasant retreat to be enjoyed while traveling. I will stay there again when in town.

When you spend $200+ a night for a room it would be nice to have a decent brekfast. The French Toast is 2 triangles (1 slice of bread) at Ihop. The omlete doesn't even come with toast ($2 extra for toast) at Ihop! Pretty cheap. There is a Perkins just down the road from the Bset Wetern. Give people a...

Room was lovely with every room having a balcony overlooking the river. Dolphins swam up to breakwater and lots of birds too. Enjoyed walking around the park like setting. Beds were very comfortable. The bathroom had a window that could have been easily broken into, but otherwise very safe. Breakfast at the neighbouring IHOP was included, but was very basic....

Check in went smoothly and I was given breakfast coupons for the adjacent IHOP. I didn’t use the coupons, so I can’t speak to the breakfast. My room was on the 4th floor in the West tower. The building is old, though very solid. There was zero noise from above, below, or adjacent rooms. The furnishings were acceptable and the...

We come to Fort Myers nearly every year to see the Red Sox, even the strike year of 1995. This hotel is a good location for spring training visitors. No softball teams or spring breaker. But one word to the wise, stay as far away from Pinchers turned 3 Fisherman the last 7 years. The restaurant billows deep fried smoke...

Overall, a great experience. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Loved that the pool was heated. Dolphins swimming nearby added to the experience. Restaurant (Three Fishermen) was average. IHOP breakfast was nice but I'm not accustomed to needing to tip for a complimentary breakfast so didn't have any cash to leave a tip on the first day. I feel that...

We had a room on the 4th floor with a lovely view of the waterfront and saw a beautiful sunset. Was looked for a room with a chair as my husband sleeps in a chair but they only had a sofa bed which was sort of okay- would have preferred a chair. Room was very clean and spacious with a...
