This is an acceptable hotel, but for the price compared to other Holiday Inns, (we paid $177) it wasn't a very good value. The good: -Room was clean. -Shuttle to downtown runs 24-7 and was very prompt and rider-friendly. (Randy is an excellent driver/guide). -Front desk staff was very responsive and welcoming. -We felt relatively safe on the hotel property.... More

The folks at the front desk are very nice. As a platinum level guest I was surprised to be given a goody bag with water and popcorn and my choice of breakfast for two or 500 points in my IHG account. I selected the breakfast. Our room was on the top floor and I never heard any sounds from any... More

We spent a week at this hotel, and while there were a few issues initially, there was always someone happy to help us with any problems. one of our two rooms was not ready at checkin, and we later discovered that the toilet didn't work very well. The rooms were supposed to be together but they were on different floors.... More

Great service, clean room, great location...had a great time staying here. Would recommend to anyone wanting to be close to the downtown area of Fort Myers.

It´s a well located place, close to downtown and close to restaurants and amenities, other than that it´s a normal sample of this Hotels. Try make reservations in advance as it´s always very crowded and maybe if you just show you will not find a room.

Should I start by saying maybe I caught them on a bad day.... no, there are too many things that just shouldn't have happened. Don't want to be a Debbie Downer but you have to know.

Sometimes a pleasant stay at a hotel can be marred by one thing. In this case it was the rude behavior of an impatient housekeeping staff. First the good: All of the front desk staff were super-friendly and very welcoming. Pool was nicely heated and staff was nice about letting us use it late as long as we were quiet.... More

We did a stop over here. Was a very good choice. Pro: laundry, close to Ford and Edison museum, clean and staff very friendly, warm breakfast Con: bathroom very small, only one wait person on at breakfast and food ran out fast. I would highly recommend this place for the price.

Clean and nice staff including breakfest for $90 a night a bit pricy but you get whist you pay for. Pool is small but nice and traffic is a bit much but not too bac for being a bit too far north to hit the beach
