We had a nice stay at the Dolphin Key Resort. We have been here once before so we were aware of the layout with the Tiki Hut. This is an older hotel but is well kept and the rooms are clean. Not a loarge pool but, again, well kept and large enough for us to sit by and enjoy the sun. The Tiki Hut is a nice place to grab a drink or meal. The stay included breakfast at the Tiki hut which was scrambled eggs, a hash brown pattie, sausage and a drink. Not a lot but it was sufficient and fresh. The Tiki hut has a variety of entertaniment which is a nice touch as well. Our room was onm the second floor and faced the pool but we were never bothered by any noise from the Hut or the pool.
The staff was always helpful from the cleaning ladies to the front desk. The hotel is located close to alot of bars and restuarants as well.
All in all a nice stay and we will stay here again when in the area.

We were pleasantly surprised
How nice and friendly this resort
Was. The rooms are large and clean, with 2 chairs and a small table, desk and comfortable bed. The staff go out of their way to help out. There is a restaurant on site with a large pub style menu. Walking distance to other restaurants as well. The pool and courtyard are
Well kept. There is a band playing on weekends and this attracted quite a crowd!
The only thing I would say
Could be of use would be a room safe, which we would have liked. Great stay for a few days, if you need a place to relax for a while or on your way to somewhere else!

Our stay at the Dolphin Key was ok. We were expecting a bit more updated room. The pool was nice and the Tiki Bar was hopping. I will say the staff was very nice and accommodating. We were disappointed in the free breakfast. You have no choice. It’s eggs, sausage and potato. I didn’t want that and ordered toast for $3.20. The coffee had only powder creamer. It was quite busy. A side note, disappointed in the town of Cape Coral. Hoping for cute shops and there were only restaurants.

We stayed for 3 days, the restaurant is great. NICOLE at the front desk was great. Cleaning lady came into our room even though we told her it was occupied and she walked in on me changing so that was awkward but other than that I’d stay again

Dear Guest. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us.. Please use the "Do not Disturb" signs located at the back of you door, to put in the window, if you would like your privacy. To maintain our high standard hose keeping goes through every room between 9 am and 3 pm., but of course will not go in to a room that has a sign on. Very welcome back. I will show you where the sign is. Kind Regards/Magdalena

We stayed for a week in August. Check in was very easy. Arrived before check in time and our room was ready. Donna at the reception desk was friendly and knowledgeable. She gave us great information about Ft. Myers beach, Sanibel Island and Pine Island. Housekeeping did an excellent job everyday. The Tiki Hut is a fun place and had really good bands on Friday and Saturday night. The bartenders and wait staff were amazing. We will stay here again.

To the owner who treated us so Poorly during our brief stay: I worked for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts as a front desk agent, concierge, Catering Sales Assistant, Executive Assistant, Catering Sales Manager, Group Sales Manager, Front Office Assistant Manager, and IT Sales Manager at 4 different properties, - over a span of 11 years. Your goal as a hotel manager/owner is to provide the Best service, accommodations, and experience possible to each and every guest: Consistently! and offer a rate which is Competitive to what you are providing. Any hotel manager who can't contain their emotions when dealing with the Public, who can't Not, not take it personally: will *Fail. I Never let a single guest complaint in my 11 years fluster me. In All my years traveling I have NEVER had a hotel staff member enter my room with her key, unlocking the security lock, without knocking, knowing their guest is in the room dressing, attempting to depart. I have *Never been *Harassed as I was at your Motel. I Did travel from Orlando where we were staying at The Silver Lake Resort for $118 dollars a night, which was, a True *Resort. I assumed a small Resort property, as you have advertised, in such a small town (Cape Coral) would be priced appropriately at the $105 I was charged to stay at your hotel. Not $50 less than The Westin (a True Resort property), which was charging only $155.00 on this night. You should Change your name to The Dolphin Key *Inn!!! and Stop misleading the public so grossly. Your rates should Never be more than 1/2 of what The Westin is charging! Your rates should be competitive with your "Comp Set", - that is: the other hotels in the area, but, you can't quite compete with The Westin and should price accordingly so people are not upset and do not feel misled upon their arrival! You should also have laminated directions to use your unique European showers in plain vision in each and every room as I am certain you get a lot of calls. You And your staff should all go through hotel management training as you Clearly do Not know how to run a motel! It takes More than renovating it, - you have NO service skills! Every room should at Least have the standard iron and ironing board in it?! Every room should have a Do Not Disturb card that can Easily be placed in it's key lock! or a sign to hang on the doorknob and it should be Respected no matter what!!! A 10am check out is Ridiculous! Offer your guests 'something' of quality since you have Very little to offer in both location and accommodations! I felt like I was staying at a scary Bates Motel, outside of the somewhat renovated and clean room, But, you should have invested in more comfortable beds! We will certainly never forget our stay with you! Good Luck running your newly acquired *INN! You Need it!

Hi, There are no microwaves. In the rooms, only refrigerators. At breakfast we serve bagels, toast, coldcuts, danishes, yougurt, egg patties, jam and jellies, coffee,tea, milk and orange juice. The local beach is 2 miles away, but that is where the river comes out to the Gulf. Ft Myers beach is 25 minutes away and Sanibel 1/2 an hour. Kind Regards/Magdlena
