Positive Reviews

Great location near the beach

One of the main selling points of the hotel is its central Fort Myers Beach location. Guests state that the property is just a few short steps from the beach, while the Times Square area – which has a healthy selection of stores and dining options – is also only five minutes away on foot.

Polite and helpful staff

The staff generate positive comments from guests staying at the hotel. These comments paint the customer service as being accommodating and friendly on the whole.

Negative Reviews

Outdated and uncomfortable rooms

Travellers are letdown when seeing the condition of the hotel's rooms. The rooms are described as dated and in need of revamping, with the beds especially lambasted for being overly hard and uncomfortable.

Hygiene issues

Guests are critical about the general hygiene standards of the hotel. As well as the lifts and corridors receiving negative comments about cleanliness, in-room issues such as dirty floors and bugs are mentioned on a frequent basis.

Bothersome noise

According to feedback, noise is potentially a significant problem at the hotel. Alongside reportedly having no policies against noise, the bothersome sound of others staying at the property – plus external sources like traffic and music – can be disruptive to comfort levels.
