Great place to stay for a Staycation on the way to Sanibel / Captiva. It's worth the 40 minute drive to the beaches because there isn't much to do there at night. By staying at this hotel, you have the Forum shopping plaze directly across the street with plenty to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ybbA Very friendly and helpful staff.
The staff at the front desk were always very helpful, especially in locating a terrific place to eat out. I came on business every other week for awhile and the rooms were always clean and comfortable. I expecially enjoyed the terrific breakfast. The breakfast server made my mornings easier as she was very special in making sure my breakfast was good. This is also close to restaurants and shopping.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glenn85 Excellent stay
Booked a two day stay at this property as a rest stop post my flight from London, before going onto Orlando with my eleven year old daughter. Got in real late and was pleasantly greeted on arrival and given a welcome suite upgrade.
This hotel lived up to the expectations I have come to expect from the Holiday Inn Express brand in England, although on a slightly different model. The room was big, well maintained, with comfortable beds.
Breakfast, unlike English properties came with the option of bacon and cinnamon rolls and proper coffee. The only downside my daughter noticed was the paper plates and cups, which to me was no biggy.
Will stay at this property again, when transiting the Fort Myers area in a heartbeat.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jvn123 Spa Tub good, Air Conditioning bad
The hotel is nice enough, staff was friendly on check in, bed was firm, pillows were thin, rust in the bathroom was a bit off putting, air conditioner would always default to 75 degrees no matter how many times I adjusted it.

This facility is quite new and is in beautiful condition. Great central location for getting around the area. Staff was helpful and attentive. Standard breakfast for a HI Express. Lots of construction crews staying at property - liked to drink beer in the parking lot. Thank heavens the A/C worked so well - hot week in Ft. Myers.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom305 Nice Hotel with Poor TV
The staff was friendly and helpful, the service was first rate. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was terrific, although it could use a bit more fresh fruit and light options. The only shortcoming was the poor quality of the television reception and the very poor offering of selected channels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kris2011 Great service and clean, comfortable room
We booked this one night reservation online at the company's website justst minutes before checking in . We chose a spa room which had a jetted tub in the bathroom . The tub was fantastic and everything worked properly. The furnishings were nicer than expected based on the price , the bathroom was very pretty, the bed was comfortable , the room was very spacious. The staff was very courteous and made our trip easy. The hotel is near the interstate with restaurants & shopping all around and is accessible to getting to the beach and everything to do in Fort Myers. We will be using this hotel very often when we need to travel thru Southwest Florida.

The hotel itself was located conveniently to visit our FGCU son. The room was quiet and clean, and the bed was wonderful. A great night's sleep after a day visiting with family. We will stay here again!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dottie J Life in 602
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.

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.
