“Our Room was HUGE!”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We stayed for just one night after a week on Sanibel and attending a MN Twins game. We had a suite that was actually two very large rooms. The room was very clean, and nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very nice too. This hotel is conveniently located just off I-75. We will definitely consider future stays when in the Fort Myers area. It is also pretty near Jet Blue and Hammond Stadiums.

The hotel was clean, and nicely updated. My room had a fridge which is always a nice addition. The front desk was very friendly and the taxi driver who I believe he said works there doing service work that drove us to the airport was so friendly. Highly recommend him even though his card reader didn't work and we had to scramble to find some cash. The hotel is located across the street from some places to get food and also a Target which I thoroughly enjoyed. The breakfast was also good and the lady working the area kept the tables clean and everything tidy.

The service was very good and forthcoming. The breakfast buffet was large and featured a nice variety. Our server Lea was very kind and took great care of the buffet. The hotel is located near the shopping area and highway.

We run a travel program for Spring Training called Red Sox Destinations. We have over 10 different properties that we use in Fort Myers and the Holiday Inn E&S Forum is by far the best one we use! They go out of their way to create an awesome experience for all of their guests. They create Red Sox themed rooms with towel alligators for each one of our guests arriving, and our fans are over the top about the experience! I have faith in them to go above and beyond.
Nicole Logan has been fantastic to work with. I stayed there myself for a week and couldn't recommend a better place. I'd recommend a stay with them any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

Wow!!!! I am completely speechless, and would like to thank you for the wonderful review. Here in Lee County, we take our sports very seriously and always market ourselves as not only a tourist destination but truly a sports destination as well. The partnership with the Spring Training teams is one that is one we truly feel strongly about so to hear that from an industry professional is wonderful. We have a lot of fun with the people coming down with the packages and love making the most out of it for the guests. Those guests are coming here to make family memories and it is nice to see that we can help them with that process. I think everyone from age 8 to 80 has raved about those alligators and taken a photo or two, so we will continue to provide them with their Florida pet while they are in their home away from home! I will be sharing this review with all of our staff here at the property, and wish you all a successful 2014 this baseball season!!! Go SOX!

Stayed here for a week with a baseball team of 34 players, the staff was wonderful (especially
Marisol and Dawn) and they were able to assist us whenever we had questions or issues. Rooms were great; all the employees (from the manager to the front desk to the housekeepers) were very accommodating and help us whenever we needed it.
We are looking forward to returning again next March.
Thanks for all your hard work and making our stay a great experience!

When it comes to team bookings, and taking quality care of guests they are two of the best we have ever had at this property.

As a corporate trainer who travels the south Florida area conducting numerous trainings, I've had quite the variety of experiences when reserving meeting spaces.
That being said, I couldn't have been more pleased with the professionalism and service I received from the team at the Holiday Inn Express. During a quick visit to view the property and to discuss our needs for meeting space, the catering manager, Nicole, gave me several options and made me feel certain our business event would go without a hitch. The day of our event was no different. Nicole and her team made sure we had everything we needed and were more than willing to assist us whenever we had a question. I couldn't come up with something to complain about even if I tried. I'll definitely be using this hotel again when we need to host a small-medium sized event in the area.
Keep up the great work.

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to our review. We appreciate our guests taking the time to post about their experience in staying at our facility. Nicole does a wonderful job ensuring all of the events at our hotel go off without a hitch, in this day and age where so much is done in a less face to face approach, it always reassures our guests with the personal attention and interaction she provides to each of our customers. Thank you for choosing our location, and we hope to keep this partnership going for a long time!!!

I had to travel to Ft. Myers for work so my wife came with me and we stayed a couple of extra days to explore the area. I wanted to use points and this hotel came up as a reasonable choice. Although the location seemed a bit out of the way, it turned out to be very convenient to the airport and access to the freeway, beach area and Sanibel Island was very easy. There is no dedicated restaurant but they have a "typical" basic free breakfast. There are plenty of decent name-brand restaurants nearby. It is a newer facility and the rooms were actually better than those of the Crowne Plaza we had stayed at while I was working.
