We stayed here on our way to Sanibel Island. Got here late (about 11 pm) Called to let them know we were coming late. When we arrived, Ryan the front desk associate had everything ready and was very helpful and nice. We went down for breakfast at 6 am and everything was plentiful. The breakfast attendant was really nice and worked diligently to replenish all the breakfast items...sausage gravy, biscuits, eggs, bacon, turkey sausage, juice, cereal, pancakes, bagels, toast, coffee, etc. The rooms were large and nice with mini fridge and microwave. We would stay here again, it was great!

My family was having a event and we needed a nice and safe place to stay and this hotel was great, kid freindly and adult freindly I was feeling like I was in the privacy of my own home. In the rooms were large and clean, this is what I call a hotel. Thanks Arleen Moore for recommending this hotel it was great.

I stayed at this hotel one night and was pleased with the service and amenities. The room was clean and comfortable and the reception was welcoming. The breakfast was excellent and attended to by staff who kept the area restocked and clean. I would stay at this hotel again in future. It is also conveniently located to shopping and restaurants.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property on your recent trip. The breakfast staff here always does their best to try to ensure our guests are taken care of, and it does get a bit challenging on those days when we have bus tours or teams but they always seem to pull through. I will be sure to share your kind feedback at our weekly staff meeting, and we hope that you can return again sometime soon. We know those Canadian winters can be brutal, so that may be a wonderful time to get back to the States!!!

There were pros and cons to this hotel. The pros were the comfortable bed with nice sheets, firm and soft pillow selection, refrig, microwave and coffee maker in room, comfortable arm chair and ottoman with good reading light and table next to the chair, nice size desk with free wifi, plenty of drawer space in the dresser, a towel rack for the hand towel in bathroom (my prt peeve when there is none), plenty of vanity space for toiletries, a large walk-in shower (no tub) with a strong water flow. The cons were: small closet with no door, old TV compared to most hotels, room temperature difficult to control. Most annoying was the maidenly slow elevator. Only one of two worked during our entire 3-day stay. It was ALWAYS crowded AND shared by the housekeeping staff who took up the entire elevator with their large cleaning carts during prime checkout time when people need to get on the elevator with their suitcases. There was NEVER anyone at the reception desk. I don't know where they were hiding. It took 10 minutes for a desk agent to appear at 4:00 pm when I wanted to check in. Breakfast was Ok if you like muscling your way thru crowds of people to eat average food. Only one tiny bar of soap was in the bathroom. The soap had to be moved from sink to shower.

Room Tip: Get a lower floor so you can use the stairs and not slow elevator if you're in a hurry.

Had to stay while doing some remodeling. I could not believe how courteous all the staff was, and helped with any need I had. The entire staff treated me like family. I think I will just stay and sell the house!!

Recently I stayed at this motel and had a GREAT time! I was here visiting family in Ft Myers & Cape Coral. I stayed for 3 nights in a king suite, which was very spacious. I wanted to say thank you to the staff of the hotel, for making my stay extra relaxing. Especially the man at the desk, who was kind enough to give me great places to have dinner as well as printed directions. The motel is located right off the highway making it very easy to travel to the airport, which is only a few minutes away.
I will definitely return on my next trip.

I am not sure if you were talking about Ryan or Carson but both are great team members and always go the extra mile for our customers. There are so many great things to do in the area and we love making recommendations for travelers to experience what Southwest Florida has to offer. It is surely a laid back treasure and family friendly destination. I will share your great review with my team at our weekly service meeting and I hope we see you back soon!!!
