Friendly, accommodating staff!Upgraded us to room 304Excellent room Excellent! Extremely CLEAN

Hot breakfast/Good coffee Cable TV SOFT BEDS! Ac & heater works great I slept great Bright white clean linens with nice, heavy comforters Plenty of towels and towelettes 5 star all around Thank you Hampton for providing a good stay!

Delanea Ouellette

Nice place; very clean – nice breakfast, great coffee!! Great location for our visit necessities as well Didn’t get to use it but nice pool area Friendly staff and nicely appointed room

Only “bad” thing is be sure to turn off the “master switch” by the door in the room, otherwise the bathroom light will come on by motion sensor in the middle of the night and is quite blinding It would be a better idea to have a “night light” scenario if you’re going to use a motion sensor I’m pretty much never disappointed at Hampton Inn when I travel

I had an absolutely wonderful time staying here at Latitude 26! I stayed here in October with 2 friends The staff were all very personable, friendly and more than willing to help with any request The amenities were unlike any hotel I had stayed at anywhere else

Gas BBQ grill, gas flat top grill, outdoor gas fire tables just to name a few all of which we used with zero problem! The pool was phenomenal and the view at the back of the property was amazing as well! I HIGHLY recommend staying here if you’re ever visiting Ft Myers! The location is just minutes away from “Times Square” and several entrances to the beach!

Stayed here while visiting the area with family, and we all had a wonderful time at this fantastic resort!! It was one of the highlights of our trip actually The amenities (kayaks, bicycles, fireplaces by waterfront, etc) were very much enjoyed, as well as the beautiful grounds and plants Staff was all super friendly, helpful, accomodating, and prompt

We booked a night here and I have to say it was the most breathtaking fantastic get away I’ve ever had! The second we walked into our room the view had us in awe The beach literally lit up the entire room, and the amenities were so clean and inviting Every detail of this hotel made our stay so special

The staff was super friendly and welcoming as well We will definitely be back and recommend to everyone!!

Richard Garcia

I liked this place because it is right on the beach, the views are beautiful from the rooms and it also has a pool in case you don’t like spending too much time on the beach I didn’t like the water pressure from the shower and faucets in general, horrible pressure The hotel doesn’t have any activities, is just you and the beach

It is located in a good place full of restaurants and music but you have to walk there No bars in the hotel!


I stayed at Edison Beach House for 11 days I had an excellent experience here 1

Right on the beach 2 Parking included 3 The price with all the features beats the rest 4 The “downtown” of Estero Island is just on the other side of public parkingsuper convenient 5 Full kitchen with all you need included 6 Washer & Dryer in the room 7 The view was amazing 8 The staff was great and I didn’t catch her name but the blonde lady who did maintenance was super friendly and very attentive If I go back to Fort Myers without a doubt this will be the only place I’d want to stay! Thanks for a great vacation!

We were so pleased with our stay! We went on a family vacation and had no clue what to do and where to stay Our stay was great, clean rooms, friendly staff

they gave us great recommendations for family stuff to do in the area! I thought it was weird the bathroom door didn’t have a lock on it but that’s was minor We would absolutely stay here again!

Pamela F

If you have children & are planning to stay a couple of days, then I’d say you can “tough it out” The pool/sun tanning area in the back courtyard is perfect for kids & adult relaxation (no lifeguard) It’s updated & has lots of “curb appeal’

But if you’re a couple & want a better or upgraded experience, this may not be the hotel for you No central air Their units work, but not at optimal performance The room is musty & damp The rug never seems to be 100% dry I think the filters need to cleaned or replaced Mattress too “sunk-in” Staff friendly Excellent parking (front & rear)


Our morning flight was canceled and we quickly booked a room at the Crowne Plaza Ft Myers at Bell Towers Megan, at the front desk, was extremely helpful and understanding

She held our bags and let us know as soon as our room was ready (way ahead of check in time) Restaurant staff and housekeeping/maintenance staff were also helpful and courteous Nice workout facility and pool This is a great location with plenty of things to do to fill a day of unexpected down time

Excellent from check in to check out Vicky at guest services was more than accommodating John the bellman was extremely helpful when we extended our stay and changed our room

Nicole from housekeeping made sure our room was clean and had fresh towels Kevin and Randy from the bar made sure we were taken care of while we spent time relaxing down by the pool Updated, clean rooms Beautiful gulf view Easy access to the beach Before we left we made sure to book our next stay! We loved it!

Rebekah Owens

The location is perfect, the views from the room are beautiful Access to the beach is extremely convenient However, our stay this time was a little disappointing

The room was not that clean unfortunately Someone’s hair was all over the pillows in the bedroom Maintenance had to come and fix one of the TVs The toilet constantly ran The tile floors in the room were dirty with some film, so we had to wear socks while in the room The bed was beyond firm, it was hard We asked if maybe there was a pillow top to place on the mattress but they did not have any The front desk was kind enough to offer another comforter instead We were there for two nights and on the second night the inside restaurant was closed which is fine, however the bar and outside restaurant closed at 6pm So pretty much everything in the hotel shut down at 6pm The bar staff were unapologetic Not very convenient when you’re paying the rates they are asking for

Marlys Battema

Everything was great We did not go to the pool but it did not look particularly clean Beach chair and umbrella set up was great

I did not rate service 5 stars because the bar closed at 8 pm which seemed a little early and room service for food was only on certain days Also no cleaning service in the rooms They did have a towel exchange system that worked well If you set the trash out in the hall someone picked it up Maybe they are working around staffing limitations We would come back for another vacation

Deserves 3 1/2 stars but had some issues staying here Reaching a live agent at the hotels front desk is as bad as cable companies giving a 5hr window for installation time I was on hold for over 20 minutes to finally have someone pick up & ended up getting a woman who didn’t speak English well & didn’t know the property too well regarding their own rooms

All I wanted to know was if my room I reserved had a microwave or an oven as I was trying to figure out what to get at the grocery store for the super bowl Once we got there I was very pleased with how clean & spacious the room was While settling in, both my guest & I wanted to take baths before the start of the super bowl and was disappointed to see there was no drain plug I phoned down to the front desk & got the same lady who didnt speak/understand English well as I asked if someone can bring a drain plug so we can take a bath 15 minutes later the maintenance man came up holding a toilet plungerwe told the guy we requested a drain plug for the tub so he went back downstairs & again 15min later he comes back & brings 2 sizes that weren’t meant for the tub as he brought a kitchen sink drain plug & a bathroom sink plug instead He asked if we wanted him to keep looking which we said would be great, about 30 minutes later he came back with the correct type built for our tub Just unfortunate as both my guest & I couldn’t take the bath before the super bowl began so he did first & I did after the game was over However the bed was extremely comfortable for a great night sleep & very clean throughout the whole room But for future vacations I may end up booking another place to try out as this place didnt really stand out However the rep who checked us in & checked us out had a very friendly good personality so kudos to her!

Mark Scholtz

The stay was good However, we were staying for a week long baseball tournament The fact that only one dryer worked for our entire stay was incredibly inconvenient based on the fact that there were several other teams staying at this location

There never seemed to be any urgency by management for a resolution and lots of frustrated parents waiting their turn well after midnight for the one operable dryer

Charlene Bolt

My review isn’t about my stay here, I was one of the new hire housekeepers when this establishment was being built I worked here for 7 days and because of covid hitting I was forced to pack up my things and move up to Orlando I let the main house keeping woman in charge named Robin know that I was leaving and gave her my address for my check to be sent to me because I worked 7 days so therefore I should be paid for 7 days

I have never received my check and that has been since 2019 I have sent emails to try and get in contact with people but nothing is responded to If you can reach out to me or my emails I would be grateful

I’m going to give the truth the great, good, bad and ugly on this spot:This is a very unique hotel but I definitely would say it’s a stretch from calling it a “resort” If you are looking for an old Florida beach borderline roughing it feel this is the right one! Having said that, our entire family has had an absolute blast here !! When you pull up it’s full of color and vibrancy, but take care In knowing the parking is extremely tight and Precarious Back up cameras are a must! You will immediately be Greeted by loud and I mean LOUD party music going late into the night that you will not escape the entire time you are here

Again if you have the mindset of wanting to party this place is for you! If you want to relax in calm surroundings-stay far away I will say that once you get into your room you can’t hear it as much and you get used to it after a while Inside the room it’s extremely basic, not much seating, I would bring extra if you can and bring extra towels and blankets, the rooms are freezing! We were pleasantly surprised At how clean it was! The service from the staff is great as well as room service and quality of food , top notch !! Location seriously cannot be beat as well as price ! I’m giving it less than 5 because once you are here you will see they are just being lazy about alot of things that would make your stay more comfortable while pushing the Florida beach party vibe as their top priority If you keep this in mind you will have an amazing time here!

Luna’s Urban Homestead

This hotel is excellent If you are looking for a 5 – 6 star hotel and complain about this hotel, shame on you it is not thatThis place is family and budget friendly

The place is super cute It has an excellent location Some rooms are old and some new Super fun poolsMost rooms have balconiesThe only reason I did not award 5 stars is because of the cleanliness of the room itself and some other details Room for improvement for sureI will definitely come back and next time with my family

Hotel is in a great location Every room has a view of the water and beautiful beach There was not however, a local bar, discounted beach loungers, or adult only time for the pool

The pool is heated, this is a necessary luxury if you plan on using it no matter what time of year The hotel staff were very accommodating with few things we asked for Breakfast is the average 4/10 free hotel breakfast as in any hotel The building and grounds are well taken care of and are comfortably welcoming This hotel is a mature adult hotel much different from some a half of a mile away Would recommend!

KaSondra Giardina

This hotel is excellent The staff was friendly and outstanding The free breakfast buffet was good, had lots of variety, and we loved it

The pool has the most amazing view of the beach whether you’re in the pool or on the pool deckThe rooms were laid out very nicely, had a good sized balcony and the most gorgeous amazing views! They were also clean, and bug free The kitchen was a nice addition, but the hotel also has a filtered water dispenser and provided a pitcher in the room- which I thought was an excellent bonus! There was always ice available in the machines – it never ran out and the ability to do laundry and not fly home with stinky clothes was niceOur entire family absolutely loved this place and we can’t wait to go back!

Beckey Rickett

Overall it was pretty good We enjoyed our little weekend away However, there are some things that need improvement

We were on the 5th floor and the palm trees blocked over half of our balcony view The landscaping is pretty, but we want to see the beach! Definitely need to trim them up Breakfast was pretty good, but it says that Breakfast is open til 10:30 We went down at 10:02 and the lady told us they weren’t putting more food out because it was almost closing time

Lovely hotel, mostly hospitable staff (they do kick you out of the pool/hot tub AT 10PM – they are not playing! LOL), nice breakfast offerings, comfy bed/couch/rolling chair w coffee table & desk in room

Only real complaints are no fan in bathroom & no seating @ smoking areas8/10 recommend – good pricing for how nice it is

Lisa Metcalfe

Friendly, welcoming staff in lovely, quieter, just-off-the-main-road location Pleasant pool/hot tub area with umbrella table seating and soft background music as well There are disposable ear phones, filtered water and sanitizer in the well-equipped fitness center–Love the fish tank in lobby! Dining service was fantastic and the grilled, 4-cheese grilled sandwich with tomato/basil soup was perfect😋

Wallace Myers

Highly recommend! I travel often and this is one of the best hotels in this price point Many hotels still do not have Netflix and other streaming service capabilities in room tv and this hotel has that and cable The gym is above average for a hotel gym

Ramona Schaefer

Perfect place to stay Friendly staff, super clean rooms, facilities were great, and the pool was amazing We had reservations at another hotel in Ft

Myers, but it did not meet our expectations I had to find other accommodations quickly and found Home 2 Suites by Hilton The differences between the two hotels were like night and day This will be my go-to hotel when I stay in the area from now on

Alexandra Novella Suarez

We recently attended a Dance convention at a property by the River in downtown Fort Myers and reserved a block of rooms at Home 2 Suites The location was excellent, just 10 minutes away and in a safe central location The rooms were super spacious, clean and comfortable

We were able to use the amenities, including the pool, fire pit/BBQ area and fitness center and all were great I would definitely stay here again

First time staying at this resort and it definitely will not be my last! Every room has a beautiful balcony view of the Gulf of Mexico 🇲🇽 😍, the rooms were spacious! Definitely enough breathing space for a family of four although I was here on a company award trip along with 20+ other co-workers (no kids) and we had a blast!! Great place to vacation for singles, couples and those with kids! Make sure to eat at Bongos which is one of the restaurants on property and have their Grouper sandwich That was my first time having Grouper and it was amazing 😋 You will not be disappointed staying here!

Mary Cris Baralla

Our stay at The Pink Shell Resort was an excellent break from winterOcean front, gorgeous pool areas, beautiful bar and restaurant, excellent service and very well appointed rooms We stayed in Gulf front room on the fourth floor and the views and sound from the beach were splendid! Beyond the relaxing atmosphere of the room, the next best part was the fantastic food and excellent service at the Restaurant

The complimentary breakfast are the best as well The staff was very attentive, professional and friendly Mercy was wonderful and very friendly A very fun vacation for our anniversary

Monica Grater

We loved our stay at the Pink Shell! The resort is kept very clean and everything is super convenient Three beautiful pools and their own private beach provide for endless fun They have their own water sport rental station that provides kayaks, paddle board, jet ski rentals and more

Our room had the most beautiful view and was very clean Breakfast was included and was very good They have a few different places to eat and all were great We also opted for a private dinner on the beach one night and it was one of the highlights of our stay All of the staff members were so kind and happy and made the stay even more enjoyable We highly recommend the Pink Shell and will be back!

We are having a house built and it is taking way longer than we expected That being said we have been at this hotel for quite some time The staff is exceptional! We have had such a pleasant experience (we are still here)

The hotel is clean, guests are friendly The front desk staff and manager have gone above and beyond to make us comfortable Love Ana, Jessica, Margarita all have been great In this crazy time where it is difficult to keep a full staff this hotel hasn’t missed a beat The kitchen staff is friendly (all the staff is friendly!), and the food is always good! Stay here you won’t be disappointed!

Harlie Jackson

We stayed here before heading to our family vacation and had a great experience The 2 ladies that work at the front desk are so kind and positive They know what they’re doing and act like they want to be here

Our room was very clean and updated The lobby has lots of space and a great work space after checking out We didn’t love the breakfast, but you don’t stay at a hotel for the complimentary breakfast It’s located next to a bunch of places, we didn’t have a rental car and didn’t want to pay for an Uber so we walked the 15 minutes to go where needed We definitely have this place on our list to come back to in the future

Silas Umah

This hotel blew me away The rooms are not only spacious but extremely neat, organized and well kempt The hotel shuttle is very prompt, what an ecstatic feeling not to wait after a long flight

Hotel is close to the airport The customer service is professional and very knowledgeable This hotel is very generous in giving a sophisticated complimentary breakfast Amenities included are gym, outdoor pool to enjoy the radiant of the sun, restaurant, stove, microwave in your room etc It is like a home away from home I can’t think of anything to complain about Please give this a try if you are in the area Very highly recommended

We had some issues finding affordable flights this year and needed to modify our reservation Franchesca and Ed provided excellent customer service over the phone, and made it very easy to adjust our stay so that we could line up more affordable flights We are thankful and really looking forward to our stay!

Casa Playa is in a great location Halfway between Bowditch and the pier We stayed in a beachfront studio and it was perfect for the 2 of us

The view from the screened in balcony is wonderful Getting to the beach is an elevator ride and short walk The chairs and umbrellas for guest use are definitely a plus! The pool is great, too!
