Check in went smoothly and I was given breakfast coupons for the adjacent IHOP. I didn’t use the coupons, so I can’t speak to the breakfast. My room was on the 4th floor in the West tower. The building is old, though very solid. There was zero noise from above, below, or adjacent rooms. The furnishings were acceptable and the king bed was nice and firm. The spacious room has a coffee maker that perks a single cup using a small pouch of coffee. The room had a microwave and refrigerator. The room was clean with a couple of exceptions. There was a nickel in the floor when I arrived, a bit of mold/mildew in the tub and sink overflow drain, and a couple of splatters behind the bathroom door. The sliding glass doors, bathroom window and entry door were not tightly sealed, allowing noise to enter from outside. The AC worked well and leaving the fan on helped cover some of the outside noise. My favorite feature of the room was the balcony looking out over the Caloosahatchee River. There was a very busy restaurant – Three Fisherman, on the property. It took me less than 10 minutes to reach downtown Ft. Myers each morning. Wi-Fi and parking are free. With upgrades to the windows and doors & improvements to some amenities, this property would even better. The towels were polyester cotton, tissues were poor quality, and the trash bags were a size too small so if you dropped something in the trash basket, the bag collapsed into the basket. Ice machines are not located on every floor. The sole luggage cart was missing in action on the morning of my departure. The TV had a lot of channels. When I accidently changed the remote out of TV mode, I never got it back. I had a satisfactory stay for a reasonable price. less
