“Re-visited for stay over New Year”
Reviewed 6 January 2012

We revisited the Lighthouse on Dec 27th 2011 to Jan 4th 2012, having previously stayed at this Hotel for one night on a trip in June 2011. This time we booked a Junior Suite and it was much better than the 'standard room' we had on our June stay. We had a room at the rear of the property which was quiet and private. The housekeeping service was good and every day left clean towels and made the beds etc. The kitchette in the suite was perfectly adequate, but the TV channels were a bit fuzzy. The Tiki Bar is really good, has a great atmosphere with locals and tourists alike, and the food is reasonable and good too. The pool was kept clean and was not at all busy even though the Hotel appeared fully booked with guests staying for the festive period. The Wifi is not as good as expected and a connection can only be achieved by being located very close to the Reception Office. The Hotel is not luxurious and shows signs of ageing and minor repairs are needed and visible in several places. Based on our stay this time we would use this hotel again as a base.

The Light house resort on Fort Myers Beach is a perfect location that is close to everything.
The resort is across the street from the beach but has the feel of a Caribiean resort. Clean and confortableand a verry good vibe! Several room types ,2 pools and a Fun Tiki bar for Football, music, and food

Room Tip: The front desk folks are verry helpful just ask back of resort will be more quiet

We had previously stayed here prior, and found the hotel quite run-down. We got upgraded this time to a two bedroom, which overlooked the tiki bar and pool, and found the hotel to be a quite bit better. They have enlarged the tiki bar, which makes it even more annoying (bad karaoke) and even louder than before. Parking is killer....it seems as if all the party goers (the day after Christmas) had secured hotel parking spots even though they weren't paying guests. Overall, we didn't eat there, or drink there, so I cannot comment on that. The room was great for a weekend getaway...fridge, microwave, coffee maker (with coffee, but no condiments...sugar or creamer) and the rooms all had tv's...albeit no remotes. Will probably go back again if the price stays in connection with the worth of the place.

We stayed here in mid-December for two nights - 2 adults, 3 children (ages 1, 3 and 6). A decent place to stay if you are passing by or have some other business in town, but if you are after a place where you can hang out all day, you will be disapointed. Worn-down rooms, (one of our bedrooms did not even have a window...), furnitures old and shabby and not so clean at all. Ok location close to the beach but also close to some major roads passing by your window. Nice, laid-back people in the reception.

It's a shame because we have been staying at the Lighthouse for the last 5 years and have spent thousands there, but never again. I paid for a king suite room, and got a filthy room with a mini fridge that had mold in the bathroom, ants, a half a roll of toilet paper, a ac that smoked and clunked all night, AND bed bugs. Discusting...I know. When I spoke to the woman at the front desk she said " we have had people in that room for the last week with no complaints." When I told her that I paid for a king suite she said " well it has a Kong bed in it." Really? Never again.

Just spent a great week at this hotel. We were 4 couples (mostly seniors) sharing 2 of the 2 bedroom suites. We are all from Canada, Toronto Ontario area. First time in Fort Myers Beach.
This hotel is centrally located within short walking distance to the beach, shops and restaurants.
The hotel is well maintained. No complaints. There is a lot of fun to be had at the Tiki Bar if you are so inclined. All of us thoroughly enjoyed the food and the entertainment. If you are a football fan then this is the place for you on Sundays!
All of us enjoyed swimming, mostly in the 2nd pool away from the bar which was a little quieter.
If you are interested in the casino cruise then it is also a short walk to the dock. (2 blocks)
Would definitely return. Very good value for the money!
