“Good Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2014

We stayed 5 nights and enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good and the staff(Katherine) was very attentive. The desk clerk, Holly, was very accommodative and friendly. The location is close to many restaurants and within walking distance to some great establishments. We would recommend this hotel and most certainly stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Stay on the back side of the hotel so you don't have the road noise.

The best part of this hotel is its location next to 'Brew Babies'. When we arrived there was a large group of teenagers (likely a sports team) in the process of checking in and that delayed our registration...which is understandable. The clerk (Spencer) was not very friendly. Our room faced the busy Cape Coral Pkwy and that created some noise (get room on other side if you go). The breakfast bar was also average. Compared to other Holiday Inns, this one is just okay. At check out, the lady on the front desk was eating her breakfast and also not too friendly.

We stayed two nights while visiting family. The hotel is clean and the staff kind.
The first night we needed to get to sleep early since my husband needed to be at the hospital by 5 the next morning. As we settled in the music started and was loud. Our room was facing the side road where the club/restaurant(?) was. I am guessing since there were sliding doors to the balcony it didn't block out the sound very well. We did fall asleep ( I decided to try to enjoy than fight it) and when I woke it had stopped. Didn't know what time it had stopped.
The next day I stayed behind and needed the air conditioner. It too was too loud which meant when I was watching tv I needed to adjust the volume up and down.
The bathroom light is connected to the fan and it too just seemed too loud. I would just turn on the hall light when I could.

The second night when the music started I wondered if I could just go with the flow again but we stayed up later and noticed at 10 sharp it stopped.

Buffet was good. First morning I had scrambled eggs and bacon the next morning they had sausage and omelets. I heard they switch it out so not to have the same everyday. Also we didn't need it but someone asked for the microwave and was told they had to take it to the kitchen and someone would heat it for them, the do not have one in the buffet area.

Other than the noise it is a great place to stay. Perkins is right across the parking lot and if you want to take a little walk you will find fast food restaurants.

I would stay again but maybe ask for a room on the other side.

Room Tip: We stayed in even number rooms where you could hear the music from the club just across the parking...

We stayed here my wife and I twice, both times the hotel room was clean and comfortable. The best thing was breakfast where Kathrine was fantastic. She was friendly, helpful and put out a great spread. We come to Cape Coral every few months and this hotel is our new stay, thanks to Kathrine she just makes our morning with her smiles and friendliness.

This was our third time staying here, and every time is very nice. We stay here when we come to the area to visit family. The beds are comfortable and always very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast is always wonderful. The best part of the breakfast is seeing Katherine, who took care of keeping the food stocked every morning. She was always smiling and making sure everyone had what they wanted. She was always a joy to see first thing in the morning! The pool is also very nice, and they have a small fitness room.

This was the first time we stayed at this hotel, and we really enjoyed it. We had made last-minute reservations to stay there for a few days while attending a family funeral, and the staff was efficient, helpful, and accommodating to our needs. Everyone who works there is friendly, and the staff who work the breakfast area take special care to make sure you have everything you need.

The only negative was that our air conditioning unit was leaking water the first night of our visit. Once we told the front desk about it, they had someone up to fix it right away.

We will definitely stay here again next year when we come back to visit family. It meets all our needs: the price is reasonable, the staff is great, our girls like the pool, the free hot breakfast is convenient, and they're pet-friendly.

My wife and I were tired due to the traffic. Once, we got to the hotel, the customer service at the front desk (SAHARA) is quickly processing us in and showed us to our room. The room is clean and comfortable. The staff members is very pleasant to help us and outstanding performance. I will definitely stay here again.
