    The hotel is very nice, in quiet surroundings, and close to beach and restaurants. It was clean, and there are good Parking Facilities, good swimming pool, with a lovely canal views. Hotel owners is incredibly friendly and the service was high. I intend at any time could recommend this hotel Marianne Larsen from Denmark

    I can only recommend this hotel

    The location

    The bedroom did not have a television. There needs to be a TV in the bedroom when all you have is a very small love seat that you have to share with a "friend" in the living room and both are uncomfortable. The garden view is a joke, I would call that a big green wall.

    What a great surprise! The hotel room was very clean and quaint. Perfect size for 2, great pool nice view. I will definately recommend this hotel and return myself. The owners were very nice and pleasant to speak with. Had a great time there and loved it.

    They offer a continental breakfast which was nice but the blueberry muffins tasted awful, good thing there were other options.

    We absolutely love the Manatee Bay Inn. The owners Axel and Connie were wonderful hosts. Our Room was very clean, modern and spacious. We stayed in the Carriage House across the street from the main office. The room we stayed in did not have a view - which we knew prior to going - but for us that didn't matter. We could easily walk across the street and sit out by the pool and look over the bay whenever we wanted to. We were only 1 to 2 blocks away from some great outdoor restaurants and about 1 block from the beach. For us it was a perfect location. We were very excited to meet other guests who come back every year to vacation at Manatee Bay Inn with friends that they met at the Inn. If we ever decide to visit Fort Myers Beach we will definitely stay at the Manatee Bay Inn.

    The inn was quiet and reasonably comfortable. While not on the beach, it was a short walk to the water. The room included a small kitchenette, and it was well stocked with cooking and eating utensils, plates, cups, etc. Even a grill. The pools were comfortable and inviting, and the grounds were well-kept. In innkeeper was very welcoming, and a good host.

    The bed was very uncomfortable, very hard. The lounge chairs were broken on the dock were broken, or repaired in such a way they were unadjustable. The chair in the back deck was broken. It did seem like corners were cut unnecessarily on items that guests use frequently.

    Big appartment and nicely decorated (we had the one which is the most expensive because the others were already booked). However, there was no arco in the bedroom (just a fan).

    Only few rooms have this nice view to the bay. The others have a view to the steet. Some rooms are even in the separate building! And the most expensive room (which we had) have a view to the walls of a huge marina magazin. Not nice at all! Also the owners are not very helpful. Prior to our arrival we e-mailed them twice and non of the e-mails were answered. They didn't even offer to order a taxi, which they knew we needed early in the morning. We also asked for something for breakfast ealier, because we have to leave early in the morning, but they refused although this is family-run property. The only inn in this area that charge the whole amount for the stay up-front.

  • Older travelers

    Cleanliness of the whole inn was excellent. Maintenance of a facility that shows its age in excellent condition. Location is perfect. Keepers are the cherry on top!

    Air conditioning needs update. Beds and pillows are are not very comfortable, too firm for me at least. Breakfast should include more fruit and bread variaty. Microwave oven in the breakfast kitchen was not working.

    The owners were very welcoming. The apartments were a good size and cleaned to a good standard. Lovely view from pool and complimentary breakfast was excellent.

    Just found the beds a little small for two people.

    The staff is very kind and helpfull. The location is amazing because it is in front of a small bay where it's so good to relax. Unfortunately it was raining and we didn't enjoy the pool and the dock. We stayed in the "depandance" near the main building: the apt is clean and cozy but it doesn't face the bay

    The owners want you to be comfortable & happy - very helpful, but stay out of your way. Within easy walking to beach, shopping, restaurants on Time Square. My 'room' was more like an apartment - plenty of room. Beautiful pool area on bay.

    Needs a little updating inside. The bedspreads are polyester & not attractive. They only changed sheets once/week - needs to be more. They do clean every day & fresh towels.

    It was clean as a pin. They were ready for us and greeted us warmly, sent us to Nervous Nellie's for dinner - it has excellent food. Ample breakfast served on the patio.

    No complaints or negative thoughts. A computer hook up might have been handy, but instead I read a good book from Manatee Bay's library.
