Very authentic Florida hotel

Posted Feb 22, 2017
Pros: Room was great.
Location: Cape Coral was a beautiful place. We checked out Ft Myers beach that was maybe a 15 minute drive -- it was worth it!
Probably favorite hotel on trip and it was booked by chance. Seemed like a very authentic hotel -- you could see it being around in the 50s. Room was big and well laid out. We faced the pool which was nice. They had live music on the night we were there and it was very good. May want to check out if anything is going on music wise as they played until 10 and no one would have been sleeping before that. Tiki bar on property was where music was and is open to public, not just guests. Would definitely stay again. Didn't see many kids -- a little bit of an older crowd.

You get what you pay for

Posted Feb 20, 2017
In town visiting family. Beach hotels booked and expensive so stayed here. Reasonable price for what you get. Pool area pretty nice. Restaurant/bar ok. Live music every night which is very popular with locals. Room could have been cleaner. I'd probably stay there again.

Great location

Posted Feb 13, 2017
Pros: Tiki bar, pool, all great !!!
Cons: As stated above...THE BED
Location: Lots to do downtown Cape Coral, 47th has tons of bars and restaurants, even a few in the immediate area
We chose this hotel, after visiting Cape Coral last year, great location, within walking distance of restaurants and bars, and for the great Tiki bar at the hotel. While the room was fine and the amenities great, can't give it a high rating, due to the horrible bed, had the 2 worse sleeps of our life. My back still hurts days later. A good bed and this would have been a perfect place to stay !!

Dolphin key was central to our wanderings.

Posted Feb 12, 2017
Dolphin key resort was central to Fort Myers the beach Sanibel Island and Pine Key island. We never felt like we had more than a 20 or 30 minute ride home from whatever adventure we chose that day. The room was very clean and the service was excellent. The pool was beautiful and the tiki bar had wonderful food and entertainment. We will definitely stay there again

hotel stay

Posted Feb 11, 2017
Room was clean and shower/bath worked well. Matresses were not very good, so had back aches every morning. With newer mattresses and pillows, I would then recomment .

Not close to the beach

Posted Feb 11, 2017
This hotel is not close to the beach if you want beach front. It's about a 15-20 minute walk or short drive. Rooms are better than they look on the outside. Bar/restaurant staff not friendly.

Thanks for staying with us. We work hard to make our guests happy and appreciate your feedback! We do not advertise that we are beach front because we are not located on the beach. We are located in the heart of Cape Coral. We apologize about your experience at the Tiki.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Posted Feb 9, 2017
Pros: Availability, location, on-site parking and an overall clean, update look. The rooms were spacious and being updated.
Cons: Continental breakfast was a bust! Bagels and coffee simply do not cut it. Beds uncomfortable. Some stains on sheets and supplies ran out. Smoky bar.
Location: Convenient located with restaurants and shops. Fish Tale Grill and Ford's Garage offer authentic, fresh food. Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island.
Dolphin Key Resort has potential, is working on achieving potential and still has areas of improvement. Dolphin Key is nicely located with area beaches, shops, restaurants and other entertainment easily accessible and within a short drive. The overall facility have been updated with painting and new bathroom fixtures. The second floor rooms were very spacious, with vaulted ceilings. A mini fridge was provided and a plus. The pool area is centrally located with a clean, updated look and new lounge chairs and sitting area. The Tiki Hut Bar is right next to the pool and one can get food and drinks poolside and/or go inside. Live music is featured nightly. Parking did not seem to be a problem.

Great hotel

Posted Feb 3, 2017
Had a good visit to Sannibel Osland and Captiva. Close to toll bridge and had great dinner at a Ford Resturant too that was close to hotel. Nice room but mattress was harder than I like which was the only compliant
