Great layout loving rooms and great location. Nothing I didn’t like

Convenient location, friendly staff. Rooms were spartan but clean and served their purpose. The bed was particularly comfortable. Nice job all in all at Dolphin Key!

The room was clean and in good working order. For the price, I found this to be a great place to stay.

The room was fresh and clean. The location is convenient to everything.

Friendly staff, nice pool area. The cleaning crew was great, there were in and quickly and effent.

First the room key wouldn’t work. Went into the room the tub was full of black hairs, the soap was open and a towel hanging on the shower rod! Hairs on the sheets!! They switched us to another room, it was a little better. Breakfast was awful awful, They served a plate of cold scrambled eggs, a deep fried potato stick and 2 dried out sausages. Cold coffee, nothing else, no juice, no fruit, nothing else!! Very dated place that they call a resort! It’s no resort!!

Clean and staff was helpful great location within walking distances of many of good restaurants, pool area was great plenty of patio furniture and tables for a group to sit at night under palm trees....very nice If you like to drink frozen drinks and live music they have a very large outdoor bar.

motorcycle noise from 10pm till 2am motorcycle noise

If you're looking to hang out at the bar it's great. Location is great, Walking distance to tons of restaurants, bars etc. We went to the bar/restaurant our first night there and it was ok. We brought leftovers back to the room and went to sleep. When we got up the food was covered with tiny bugs, similar to minges. We should have put the food in the mini fridge but there is no microwave to heat it up so we threw it away. The other disappointing thing was a tiny tv with limited channels. There wereno sports channels and no CBS affiliate. The room was relatively clean. The Harley's that left thebar at midnight were pretty loud. You get what you pay for. If i was going back today I'd probably look elsewhere but if you're just looking to get away and hang out at the bar this is the place for you.

Staff best ever,clean, friendly , felt like home away from home,storm was the best.

UPDATE - Orbitz will NOT give me a refund for my stay at this bug- and bodily-fluid infested motel because the motel offered us another room to stay in and we refused. Look at the pictures and ask yourself if you would have stayed in another room. Also, I have a video of a bug crawling across the wall as soon as I walked in. BOTH of our rooms looked like this, by the way. Orbitz does NOT care about its customers.

Easy check in Clean room Might want to replace fan in bathroom. Very loud and disruptive

The room was great, friendly staff and great pool area. Our room was poolside and on the weekend it was kinda loud, but the music ended by 10:30-11, so it really wasn’t a problem. We would definitely stay there again.

It was a nice hotel. We were only there for sleeping and it was plenty comfortable!

Hotel clean, staff courteous. Unique resort with heated pool and Tiki bar. The breakfast was minimal coffee, toast, OJ, muffins and egg rounds but no English muffins or bagels to make a sandwich.

We arrived for a 4 night stay at 1115pm. Great reception and very helpful. He mentioned the tiki bar and that they had live music. We thought that's great if we decide to go to the tiki bar. Turns out, we didn't need to because we could hear it every night, including the drunk people shouting. When I booked the room it didn't mention anything about the fact that sleeping wasn't going to happen until the bar closed, otherwise I would've picked a different place. Finding out the night we arrived didn't help because nothing else was available. The room was okay. Floors needed to be mopped. There were ants everywhere. Housekeeping couldn't check the toilet paper until we were just about out. And then they couldn't be bothered to put it on, but left us a roll. Appreciate it. One bed hadn't been turned, as it had sand in it from precious guest. And the pillows smelled musty. But we decided to not worry about it, because we weren't on vacation for the hotel. Parking. The tiki bar used virtually all of it, so I had to park in some gravel lot for 2 nights. And one morning there were empty beer bottles by my car. Awesome. Overall, the owners want a resort, and a nightclub. Both don't seem to work well together. We thought about complaining, but after digging into the reviews, we realized that the management wouldn't be concerned, as these same complaints have been brought up over and over. And shrugged off. Won't be back.

Very convenient location if you’re looking to stay at a unique venue and still be close to everything. The staff is extremely nice and the Timi Hutt, oh man the Tiki Hutt; such a charming spot with live music, great food, and ice cold drinks! I definitely recommend the Dolphin Key Resort to any travelers coming to Fort Myers/Cape Coral.

The images are deceiving. This place is your classic two star motel. Is sandwiched in two vacant parking lots, creating a terrible view...very desolate looking. Stains on bed cover as well. Was really gross. Tiki bar was okay...again, not as advertised. Would never stay there again. Rip off.

We are very sorry for the computer glitch of trying to check you in to a room that was already occupied. (the reason the key didn't work in the first place) Nothing said here about the cleanliness of the room we moved you in to once the error was found?
