Best Western Fort Myers Waterfront

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Booked for 7 nights and enjoyed the entire stay. The hotel staff was very pleasant and helpful. The only gripe was the 3 Fishermen restaurant which was somewhat disappointing in the food quality and neatness.Overall, the hotel was very satisfying.

Space of room taken for ice and vending machine. No fan or window in bathroom.

We only stayed two nights and were going to a wedding, but the room was clean and spacious.

Way over priced for an old musty smelling "motel" room. Have you ever read the notice the hotel posts on your room door that explains the emergency evacuation plan and the maximum amount they charge for your room. My experience is that this amount is always outrageously high and far more than I actually paid. Not in this case. I was charged more than the posted amount, for a ground floor motel room that had a limited view of a near by restaurant storage room with it's staff frequently working out of. When I went through Orbitz to reserve this room on-line, I have to operate on blind faith that they with protect me as a consumer to ensure that I will pay a fair price for a good quality room. Orbitz let me down.

It was OK, but not great. Parking was not the best.

Breakfast at IHOP was Great! Our room and bed is the smallest I've ever had..the bathroom was big but shower had no pressure, and no plastic curtain. The room was small but clean.

Reminded me of my first dorm room. Very plain and inelegant. Did not conform to the pictures posted on line.

We froze- no blankets. I went to the front desk and was told they were all locked up for the night.

Room was fine - large, comfortable, on the riverfront. A bit noisy - road noise and other guests. Good breakfast. A bit expensive given the location.

Some of the parts of the hotel was dated. Pool was nice

Nicely situated near historic Ft Myers. Beautiful views of the river from the back of the hotel. It's way past it's prime. Room was dated. Bathroom needs a complete gut job. Looks like it hasn't been renovated since 1970. WiFi system was weak. Nice restaurant right on the property for seafood. Breakfast was across the parking lot from the hotel at IHOP. That was nice. Just know that it is a limited breakfast for hotel guests

Decent enough hotel- but be warned of booking through orbitZ or another 3rd party site, a "river view ", may only be a partial peek of the river. Ours, at the far end of the east tower, was mostly a view of the hotel facilities roof with a little bit of river. Staff was nice, room definitely could have been cleaner. Pizza box and a life of pizza on our balcony when we arrived. Beds were comfy! Desk chair was great if you have to do work while there.

Had a great time while staying at this Hotel. Pool, Bar and view was great!

Way better than expected.The sea food place is the bomb

Nice view, get a room high up and enjoy the breakfast included at IHOP

Easy to get to, close to all amenities. Nice views of the water. The breakfast could have had more choices so we went off site all but one morning.

it was comfortable and very pleasant my kids loved it and the pool

Great hotel experience, will stay again. Included Ihop breakfast each morning...huge perk! Several other great bar/restaurant choices within walking distance.

The hair dryer didn't work the first morning. And with 2 women getting ready to go to a Church service it could have been disaterous. The hotel was prompt in sending up a new dryer and had the problem fixed for the next day. Excellent service! Excellent view! Clean! Close to the different things that we needed to go too,

Only found this hotel by accident The services offered were exceptional Highly recommended hotel
