    Superb

    That it was right on the Gulf. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The grounds were neat as well.

    The rooms in their motel need to be updated. Maybe new rugs and definitely new beds. The beds were miserable. I would recommend it to others because it does have a beautiful location and as I said, the staff were very nice.

    Great location very near to the beach (we stayed in the motel). Sea view from all rooms. I would recommand to stay on the first floor (we did - better view). Very nice beach.

    Only a smal pool area, not very inviting.

    The location was awesome. The beach was quiet and private with very little traffic. Very family oriented.

    You are your own maid service. This was not spelled out in the information. Didn't mind getting towels everyday but would have been nice to have someone run a vacuum daily due to sand tracked in on the floor.

    It was conviently located, close to shopping and restaurants and just steps from the beach. The room was extremely clean and attractive. Also, the Friday night social hour at the pool with food and drinks was a very nice touch.

    The only complaint I had was there was a large group from Minnesota staying there and early in the a.m., they took all the beach chairs and covered them with towels and hoarded them all day long even though they were not always using them. We had no chairs to sit on when we wanted to. I think management should not allow this to happen.

    Very nice accommodations for a couple. Small cottages with 1 bedroom, 1 bath, small kitchen, small dining living room. Place was very quite which we enjoyed. You are responsible for your cottage, there is no daily room service. This, for us, was very comfortable because you didn't have to abandon the room to get it cleaned each day. You can get fresh towels and necessities at the office. Very close to the beach (200 ft), pool and not far from Periwinkle's Way center of business and Bailey's to stock up. Spent a week and thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Room was spotless on check-in. Beautifully decorated. Bathroom little dated but was very clean so I didn't really care. Steps to the beach. Full view of Gulf from screened-in porch. Having full kitchen was a plus for financial, nutritional and time saving reasons. Things I wish I'd brought: sand flea spray, sponge, French press.

    The staff was excellent and most pleasant! The location was beautiful and the room was more than expected~ I was extremely pleased. It was comfortable, very clean and all up to date.

    Exceptional

    Great location on the beach, view of the water, quiet, kitchenette (with fridge/freezer, coffee maker, stove, toaster) was convenient for making breakfast and lunch. Staff provided good restaurant recommendations (coupled with one's own internet research). (Note-if you will do dolphin boat excursion from sanibel or captiva, reserve in advance. Also-ding darling refuge has on-site bike rentals, guided tours (check schedule), and tram tours with guide, in addition to trails and 4-mile gravel drive for self-guided bike/walk/drive. You will need bug spray if temp is above 70 degrees or so.)

    For reservations less than one week, no maid service. They tell you this in advance but I raise it nonetheless-if you don't want to wash your own dishes and make your own bed, be warned.

    I stayed in the motel which is unbelievably close to the beach -- literally steps from your room. It's the perfect place to relax out on the patio and watch the waves roll in or stroll along the beach. The kitchenettes allow you to save time and money on food. The cottages would be perfect for a family vacation. There is so much to do on the island. But, you can also do nothing more than lay on the beach if you'd like.

    The only bad thing about the motel is that the walls are pretty thin and the floors are rather creaky. Probably the reason that this place is less expensive than surrounding areas. However, thankfully this didn't turn out to be a big deal because the surrounding guests all went to bed at a decent hour and during daylight you won't spend any time in your room anyway.
