Staff was friendly and concerned about guests - pool was small 

Close to Bonita Beach, outlet malls, and Fort Myers - excellent hotel - staff was friendly and respectful, liked being greeted with a warm chocolate chip cookie - great room with separate bedroom, living room, and mini-kitchen - appreciated having a sink, fridge, and coffee maker with gourmet coffee - had 2 TVs and free Internet access - bathroom was immaculate and had Neutrogena toiletries - I'll stay again - 

Excellent - great room and customer service - soda vending machine needed more diet cola choices
