“this business is dirty and depressing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 January 2012

I had reservations for 2 nites. When I drove up it was very depressing and no way I was to stay there. ( I have no problem staying at 2 plus rating hotels). This hotel should be rated less than two. I walked in the office about cancelling rsvp. It was totally cluttered, items piled all over and the maintence guy was running the desk at the time. Smoke scent from him was horrible! The exterior walls, doors were dirty. My thought is 1st impression is about a 3 out of 10. I dont want to think what the rooms were like. Luckly I could cancel and went down the road. If I would have stayed there, it would have been a depressing vacation .

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel, located in a Cape Coral residential neighborhood. When we arrived, we found that our suite (#207, on which these comments are based) was much like what we'd seen on the hotel website. The Hideaway's unassuming self-catering comfort suited us well. Located on the Rubican (Cape Coral's largest canal), the Hideaway features sandy ersatz beach (with Adirondack-style sand chairs and bean-bag shuffleboard), dock, deck with barbecue and seating area, heated pool, plus free Wi-Fi, kayaks, and paddle boat. The decor is quirkily estate sale, not everything matches, but we found it clean, comfortable (Select Comfort adjustable bed!), and ideally situated for our needs. We also had plenty of privacy. Not only that, the Hideaway offered us the use of their corporate discount for car rental! (And we also assume the owners, Mark and Linda, were responsible for the beautiful weather.) Recommended!

Stayed December 2011, travelled with family

The rooms were nice and staff were VERY helpful. Only one room when we checked in but staff moved us to bigger room for next night.

Location:
The hotel is located in a residential area. When you pull up there is no sign of water anywhere however there is a small canal behind the hotel that leads to open water. We did not like the location though we decided to tough it out (wine) and make the best of it rather than ask for a refund.

Staff:
Obviously a privately owned establishment. They were friendly enough but check-in had an odd flow. It appeared to be a family endeavor with grandma living on the bottom floor with a cage full of parakeets.

Cleanliness:
As out of date as the room was (circa 1970) cleanliness seems to go hand in hand. The room did not have a clean feel.

Summary:
If you can't afford better and you want a place with a kitchen then this may be your place. It is old and run down. In comparison, we stayed at a beach condo the night before we stayed at the Hideaway and paid an additional $20 to get a room with a gulf and granite everything. Just sayin...

Basic suite with kitchen facility - small family run establishment offers good and personal service - we did not stay long but certainly will consider return and recommend for vacation travel - traffic in and out of Cape Coral a bit of a hassle but quiet neighbourhood with easy-to-reach restaurants is positive.

Our second week long visit to the Hideaway. We love the location..we can walk to the little downtown area for restaurants and shopping. The beach is lovely and only a five minute drive away..the resort is a two level motel of vintage charm. The canal out back is beautiful and jumping with fish. You can kayak, paddle boat or sun. The pool is in the front and the water is very warm {84 degrees when we were here}. The music is soft and easy listening. The neighborhood is residential and very safe. Rooms are spacious, provide refrigerators, stoves and are cleaner than some of the well known big chains we stay in on other trips..all around a pleasant getaway for people who are looking for a quiet, peaceful vacation.

Room Tip: request a guest room..much larger..worth the few extra dollars!
