Although I had a room to stay in, I am disappointed in the conditions of the room. It was hot. Pay close attention to your room thermostat. They are programmed and my room was set in the upper 70's. I would retire for the night and then awakened by the stuffy hot room. So I get up adjust the temperature and this was a week long battle. For that reason alone I will not stay at this property again.
My big issue was the billing. In the middle of my week one of the day rates jumped by almost 100%. That issue remains unsolved today, 5 days after I checked out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by billyboy26 Clean, good location, friendly and efficient staff
Second time my wife and I have stayed here while visiting friends. Friendly and efficient front desk staff. Lobby and eating area bright, clean, and inviting. Room clean and fresh. Quantity and quality of free breakfast very good. Close to major road and interstate, but no problems with noise or traffic issues. Will stay here again when visiting.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by P/OF Laundry
Very comfortable hotel, the wait staff was great, the washer/dryer situation was a major issue for a lot of parents, playing as many games that were played and had several teams staying there, what you had was inoperable and there were really no options for laundry service...If you wanted clean clothes you either had to bring a lot or go into undesirable areas, not to happy about that...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BaseballDad Very nice four night stay
We just returned from our four night stay at the Holiday Inn Express - The Forum in Ft. Myers. For those who are looking for a quick snapshot - the hotel is extremely clean, the breakfast is fresh and diversified and it is centrally located. The only drawback was the loud air conditioner at night. Overall would stay there again in the future.
Our family stayed at this location over Fourth of July weekend. Given that the hotel was sold out due to youth boy's baseball and girl's softball tournaments in the area it was surprisingly quiet throughout the hotel. There was plenty of breakfast items throughout the morning and the hotel's staff did a great job while we stayed there.
Our room was room 301 - a standard King room located at the end of the hallway. The staff thankfully provided us with a roll away bed for our son as there wasn't a fold-out couch in our room (not sure if that is the case in every room). The room itself, while not huge, is well laid out and was clean. One note is that this room does not have a bathtub as it may have been a handicap room in the past (but is not listed as such now). Our only complaint was that the air conditioner was very loud during the night. By the third night we ended up trying to freeze the room before bedtime and then leave it off for the night. Not sure if this is the norm or not, but it was for room 301.
In addition to free breakfast and internet, the hotel has plenty of ice machines and two guest laundries if that is necessary for you.
The hotel is located just off of I-75 and is about 15 minutes from the airport. There is a Buffalo Wild Wings, a Five Guys Burgers, a Starbucks and a couple of other small restaurants within walking distance across the street. There is also a Target and Home Depot right across the street.
At the end of the day we certainly will stay there again in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pete106 excellent hotel could not be faulted for staff, facilities, and service.
As i said excellent hotel only problem I had as a tourist was the location, middle of nowhere 30 to 40 min drive to beaches which is the only thing that would put me off from going back otherwise hotel was fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Absolutely perfect for the occasion
We had no reservation and needed a place to stay for the night during a recent baseball tournament in Ft. Myers. I called 5 minutes before we arrived. The woman at the front desk was very pleasant and helpful and checked us in in less than 10 minutes. She recommended some restaurants for dinner and brought up extra blankets within 10 minutes and would not accept a tip.
Perfect hotel for our purpose.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Realtor789 Unfortunate timing
The hotel and staff were great. The breakfast was nice also with a cool pancake machine. Unfortunately, there were a lot of kids (basketball tournament) there which I did not mind until around 10pm when my family of four were sleeping and the fire alarm went off. Apparently one of the kids pulled the fire alarm thinking it was funny. Still not laughing!!!!

The same friendly and helpful staff at check-in had my room ready and waiting. The rooms have all been comfortable and clean. Combine this with the affordable rates and a great breakfast the HIE The Forum is the only hotel I'll be staying at. It's nice to feel at home while on the road.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Firedude403 Friendly, Accommodating, and Professional
I recently spent 7 nights at this location and had a fabulous experience. The hotel staff was very friendly and the rooms were exceptionally clean and comfortable. When I checked in the desk clerk, Marisol, could not do enough for me. She checked me in quickly and made sure I didn't leave without recognizing my platinum status and thanking me for staying with them. During my stay I also met Ryan (front desk) who was standing at the front desk every time I walked in the front door. He always greeted me with a huge smile. I enjoy staying at locations who appreciate my business and would definitely recommend staying at the Fort Myers, Forum location. A couple of days prior to my arrival, I sent an email to Alexa requesting additional pillows. I received an email back from her (most locations never respond to my emails) assuring me that they would be in my room when I arrive. They were!
Thank you for a very enjoyable stay and I look forward to my next visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kellysreed Excellent stay, great hotel and staff
Bed was very comfortable, service from staff was always quick, friendly and efficient. The woman in the breakfast room did a great job taking care of our 30 high school baseball players and coaches. The internet signal was strong enough to support my VOIP phone and work computer and I was able to happily work from my room. I also received excellent service from the help desk from corporate. EXCELLENT hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shadow Creek Another Great Experience
I'm as happy as the first day I stayed here at the Holiday Inn Express in Ft. Myers (The Forum). I have stayed several times & as always, the staff & service have been outstanding every time. Upon check-in, I went to the room & jumped in the shower. The shower head was not working properly. All it took was a quick call to the front desk & the crew sprang into action. Within minutes, the problem was solved & my weekend was good to go! I just want to thank the staff for their quick response and taking such good care of your customers. I will be back!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingSix Our suite was huge
We stayed for just one night after a week on Sanibel and attending a MN Twins game. We had a excutive suite that was actually two very large rooms. The room was very clean, and nice. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very nice too. This hotel is conveniently located just off I-75. We will definitely consider future stays when in the Fort Myers area. It is also pretty near Jet Blue and Hammond Stadiums.

Hotel description for families holidaying leaves a lot to the imagination,states minutes from beaches,well don't no what beach they describe as 45 minutes would be a fairer description.it is a new property and lacks character.the pool is not private as it backs on to a road,no screening at all.my room was very dusty indeed and was in need of a good clean.staff lacked personality and were not approachable.only stayed one night of 3 night stay and decided to move at our expense.not happy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AtlanticOcean0 Pretty good stay.
I arrived early, and the hotel looked completely dead. It was extremely hot outside, I was tired from traveling a long distance so I went in to see if I could check in early. It was 1:30p and the desk staff was kind of rude and told me check in was not until 3p and to leave and come back at that time. When 3p came around, there was another agent at the desk, and she was very pleasant. Check-in was easy, the room was nice and clean. The A/C felt great and everything was like it should be. No complaints. Breakfast was the traditional holiday inn offerings, no variety. The pool was kind of small, but that is the least of my worries. Overall, this is a great location... close by to everything! I will return to this property in the future. Oh, and watch out for the alligators in the area.

We moved to the Holiday Inn Express because the Residence Inn was not very clean, the rooms were worn and the price was much higher. This was a much better choice for all the right reasons.
