“Never ever again.”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed here as a last resort as everything else was sold out. The motel needs some serious repairs or a bulldozer. Run down and dirty. Nothings works as expected. Smoke detector in room was missing. Only a couple of wires hung out of the wall. Neither was the clock or the phone working. Our room came with a view of a lovely garbage dump. This is exactly the kind of motel you see on tv when they arrest the drug dealers.

Stayed February 2012, travelled with family

We had a great day at the Howard Johnson's in Fort Meyers, Florida. There were three couples, so we occupied three rooms. The first "plus" was that they were able to get us rooms next to one another. The rooms were large, there were two additional chairs for sitting. There were very nice refrigerators and micro waves in them. The beds were comfortable and CLEAN. One of the perks was the continental breakfast, it included hot waffles! We had been traveling for 16 days in Florida, so have seen our share of "continenteal breakfasts". So it was a nice surprise to be offered a hot breakfast, including two kinds of juice and cold and hot cereal. We would definately stay with them again. We really enjoy the Fort Meyers area, so we will see them again. Bob and Susan

LOL... due to some glitch in the wiring, when I turned out the lights at night the TV would come on. This happened every night I was there....

Now, the room was OK. Nothing fancy but clean and I slept well since the beds were decent. You could tell that the repairs and renovations were "kept within the family". Not professionally done, if you know what I mean. My big complain was the 1980s 19" TV. Terrible reception. With the cost of newer TVs coming down, they need to replace them. My next complaint will be the WiFi. This was frequently down. When I complained to the front desk, a person who spoke little English managed to convey that he was working on it. The breakfast was good but the dining room only had 5 tables... people were standing around all over the lobby either waiting for a seat or eating standing up.... which was not easy with waffles. Hey, it is cheap so you get what you pay for... but it wasn't all that bad.

Room Tip: If you need WiFi... stay in a room closer to the office.
