We made a last minute reservation and were pleasantly surprised that this motel was better than we expected. Our room was comfortably equipped with two queen size beds, a fridge, TV and a functioning wifi. It also opened on the pool rathet than the parking lot. Laundry facilities were available on the second level and there was a grill nearby where we had breakfast and dinner one evening (not remarkable but decnt). We were so comfortable that we decided to stay a second night, which happened to be the yearly light parade and fireworks display to crlebrate Thomas Edison, a Ft. Myers resident.
Location was good for me. Front desk staff were friendly. The room was very basic. No iron, old decor, no phone, crappy pillows and no Guest Services guide/booklet. Wifi was hit and miss. When I went for breakfast there was nothing and I mean nothing left except for coffee which was good. When I asked the staff about breakfast he just mumbled something I couldn't hear and didn't even look up or offer to get anything else. I thought it was pricey considering it's a budget hotel.
This was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. I guess you get what you pay for. We stayed two nights and thank goodness it was only to sleep. The room was in pretty bad shape, towels were paper thin, wifi didn't work, and the breakfast was waxy tiny donuts, white bread, Tang , and coffee. I felt like we were in a very seedy movie. Never again.
Mr. Patel was a great help to my wife and I when hurricane Matthew was headed for West Palm Beach and we decided to shutter up the house and go west to N. Ft Myers. The predicted path would take the storm into West Palm and then up the East Coast. At the last hours the storm jogged a bit north and missed our area where we live. We left early and arrived in N. Ft Myers without reservations on Tuesday. The night clerk check us in but failed to put we would be staying more than 1 day. The next morning we had no room because of his error and Mr. Patel had 39 confirmed reservations and no room for us downstairs and non smoking or even upstairs and smoking. However, he called me in the room and worked out with a person a room change and kept our room rate the same. Our room was 100% great. Everything looked new. The pictures do not do justice to the room we had. It also has a great restaurant right next door to the lodge. We stayed until Friday morning after the storm passed and look forward to going back again and staying there and enjoy the great attractions near by like the Shell Factory. Tell Mr. Patel the Durels highly recommeded the his place and appreciate his great service. By the way housekeeping is terrific.
This place advertises truck parking. Yes for smaller U-haul sizes trucks not tractor trailers. The gentleman that checked me in said I could park next door if I was gone by 7:30am which i was so no problem. The lobby is small and that's where breakfast was servred. Not much just drinks and pastries. Room was adaquet for a trucker. Alot of workers staying here.
My wife attempted to stay here until she met the man at the counter and saw the room. The man was rude and smelt. The room was dirty and in disrepair. The pool was not working either. We immediately asked to cancel our reservation but the man refused. We did not even stay here and they charged my card anyway (completely illegal).
After travelling all day and being tired we Booked in here for one night and that was enough. Wifi didn't work, room was old and grubby, breakfast is almost non existent . The area didn't feel very nice.
This was a very bad stay for the price. The bathroom had a leak from upstairs when they showered/bathed. Two sets of towels in a two double bed room. And a couple of the lamps didn't work , they appeared to be falling apart. And during the night, some kids were playing around after we went to bed. No consideration from staff.
I was very disappointed in this hotel. The room was nasty. The mattresses had plastic on them. The curtains had holesin them.I swear I smelled urine in the pillows. I'll never stay in another place like this again. It was run down and seedy at best. Even the hotel lobby looked seedy. The carpet was so gross I never took my shoes off. It was nothing like it's website portrayed. How can they advertise a place like this to families? This was NOT a family place. :(
Was forced to stay there on the evening of Feb. 9th 2015 due that all the other hotels were full in fort Meyers. was charged $150 for the night. it was stinky and looked like it hadn't been cleaned at all. pulled back the top sheet and a big glob of black hair was there looking at us. We slept in our clothes on top of the bed. We had 1 wash cloth and a towel did didn't match. No ice bucket and no telephone. Did not think that Choice Hotels would have something that bad in their group.
