lani kai hotel

this hotel is in a good location. that being said the beds are awful. i belive original 1979 when it was built. every morning dead bugs all over the bathroom and all over. the staff is rude. the top floor food is great but staff awful. all the locals say" lani kai we dont go their" it is known for spring break madness. loud pounding music all day long it is very hard to even have a conversation outside that includes on your patio. try best western its similar in price and well worth a little more money.

Hotel is in disrepair, and had no amenities

- The door would not lock unless it was slamed several times. -The lobby offered no coffee. When I asked, I was told to go to the restaurant on the top floor and buy it. - No internet in rooms. It is only assessable in the lobby. - Allows their guest to party in their rooms, and let a band play loud music on the beach patio. This is not a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful view.

NIGHTMARE GET AWAY

THE ENTIRE HOTEL WAS DIRTY AND VERY NEED OF REPAIRS. ROOM DOOR LOOKED LIKE IT HAD BEEN KICKED IN 2-3 TIMES,BROKEN FURNITURE, LOOSE BACLONY RAIL. THE WORST THING WAS THAT WE LOOKED UNDER MATTRESS AND THE FIRST BED HAD DEAD BUGS AND A FULL WATER BOTTLE UNDER IT, BUT TO TOP IT OFF THE SECOND MATTRESS HAD A USED CONDOM UNDER IT. WE CHECKED OUT WITH IN 10 MIN. THE MANAGER SAID THE HOUSE KEEPER WAS TO SMALL TO LIFT AND CLEAN MATTRESS. I RECOMMEND DIAMOND HEAD RESORT DOWN THE ROAD..CLEAN AND LOTS OF FUN.

Unlivable

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at in my entire life. I would not recommend using this website for making hotel reservations based on my experience. This is not a hotel but a an unlivable space with a view of Fort Myers Beach. I cannot say enough to describe the terrible conditions and lack of cleanliness at this location. This website should be ashamed for having this listed on their website.

bed bugs & safety

Booked a king , god two ancient queens, very springy . I looked under mattress & noticed very "used" bed bug traps . Doors obviously broken at some point , you can see daylight through; no inside security lock that any low cost hotel would have . "Manager " no help on any complaint; & we're not " old fuddy duddies"!!!! Sorry!!

Shocked picture on computer not the same when seen

This hotel needs an upgrade seriously -the room we stayed in was ok but had an issue with the door shutting properly-almost like someone had tried to kick the door in at some point - really had to push it hard to get it to shut!!elevators were horrible- slow outdated n dirty. Food was good in restaurant but it was dirty. This place really needs a clean up especially for the price we got charged for the room. Won't be staying there again!!!!

Terrible experience

This place is loud and noisy; the young crowd is ever present. This was spring break while we were there. Police, and I mean lots of them, HAD to be present at all hours of both day and night. They had to patrol the beach, the motel lobby, parking lot, and especially the street in front of the hotel. The hotel has a policy/procedure in place where a tractor grades the beach at daybreak every day. No sleeping thru that! The hotel has an outdoor band stage that seemed to provide noise till 4am. The music quality wasn't the issue as much as the fact that the bass instruments reverberated all thru the building. Try sleeping thru that!!! I hated the place and will never go back.
