Can't decide which hotel....

We can't decide, between The Naples Beach Hotel and Golf Club or the Cove Inn. The Cove Inn is far more reasonable priced with much more diversions in terms of bars & restuarants to walk to, but the Beach Hotel is on the beach....(We don't mind walking to the beach though)...Which should we choose?

The Cove Inn is more like an older motel situation with boat docks. I hear the restaurant is diner-like, but no first hand experience. It will be a long walk to the beach from the Cove. The Beach Club is for the most part, beach-front and more of a resort situation. Beach Club offers an outdoor bar area on the beach for sunset and often has live music. The Cove Inn is on a canal in the bay area with boat docks and a tiki bar. Another option is Naples Bay Resort that is on the Bay also distant from the beach; however I hear they offer a shuttle to both the beach and 5th Ave and 3rd St in the evenings.

We stayed at the Cove Inn last July and it is a great place to stay, Views from the balconies are lovely, it is a 10 mins walk to the beach, the restaurant (the dock) is superb and it is a 10 mins walk to Tommy Bahamas. The accommodation is 1st class as is the price. We would stay here again when we return to Naples.

I agree with 5startraveller, check out the Naples Bay Resort which I have found cheaper than both NBH and the Cove Inn. You can spend your days at the beach beside the NBH and use the Sunset Bar (which should be rebuit by now!). The pool and spa at the Naples Bay Resort is better and there is a Bonefish Grill on site.
