Verified Reviews of Candlewood Suites Fort Myers / Sanibel Gateway

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Okay once you find it!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
This place was extremely hard to find. The address given does not show up on the map. Perhaps they changed the streets some time back, but there really is no signage to help people find it. The only thing I saw the next day (after fumbling around in the dark the night before) was little posters staked into the ground that looked like real estate signs. Who would be looking at those? The staff at the desk was always friendly and helpful. The maids, however, did not once check to see if I needed new dish towels or anything else. Even when I left the dirty ones out in the hall. I realize that I'm going to be there for four days and don't need my bed changed or even fresh bath towels, but a look to see if things were needed, or wastebaskets emptied, would have been nice. Otherwise, the place was clean and quiet. I did enjoy staying there and would do so again in the future.

"Longstay great value"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
We stayed at this hotel for most of February and March and found it to be very good for the value spent. The hotel is ideally suited to get to the beaches and if you want to go down to Naples it is not a very long drive. The exception if you stay long term, don't expect daily sheet changes as they are done only once a week along with housekeeping. You can of course go down for new towels and sheets if you so desire. Just return the old used items at the front desk. Also, don't be in a hurry to address certain issues, as the hotel works on a limited staff, but they will not forget and will eventually get to your needs. The pool is in the wrong place and only gets sun between 10 am to 1 pm.
