This was the least expensive hotel stay on our 8 day Florida road trip. I wasn't expecting much at all. What we got was a very clean, spacious room with a kitchen and a super comfy king size bed! I wasn't aware of their deposit nor all of their rules for the room. It was fine though, we didn't have problems with any of that. *Coffee for the coffee maker wasn't provided,* Bring your own that works in that tiny coffee maker, but not sure where you can find them.
Good accommodations BUT...

There were signages about pandemic precautions: masking, distancing, limit of 2 people in the elevators. There were even hand sanitizer dispensers.
The problem was staff do not seem to enforce masking uniformly. One receptionist stopped a guest who was unmasked, then another receptionist at another time didn’t even say a word!
Limiting housekeeping staff into rooms of short stays is reasonable. HOWEVER the hotel cannot forget hygiene check compliance; rooms especially bathrooms must be cleaned during 3 or more days of staff! Many hotels, yes Choice and Marriott hotel chains do clean rooms every 3 days!
The pandemic CANNOT be an excuse for putting aside normal maintenance of hygienic bathrooms especially for longer stays. Housekeeping crew are masking and wearing gloves. Is there any reason cleaning every 3 days could not be done?
Two room issues: (a) the room AC was noisy, even at low fan. I had to find a pharmacy to buy earplugs so I can sleep. (b) the bathtub creaks as one moves when taking shower. It’s not just mine, I can hear the same creaking sound from next door. The tub looked overlaid with a plastic material, the creaking likely due to wrong fit or that plastic material detaching off from whatever was underneath.
Otherwise the accommodations itself was good. Spacious room with kitchenette. WiFi was free, strong and steady. Despite the rather loud hum from the AC, the room climate control was good. Free parking. The location was a good base for exploring Fort Myers and vicinity.

If you simply want an ultra-affordable, super-basic, clean place to sleep, this is it. Comfortable bed, adequate bathroom, TV, tiny kitchen. Window opens a few inches & is screened, so you can get fresh air. HVAC unit under the window.

Kitchen has a sink, dish rack, 2-burner countertop stove, microwave oven, coffee maker, 2 pans, dishware and flatware, fridge, small table with 2 chairs. If you want a full-size fridge, specify when you reserve; some rooms have only a small dorm fridge. If you want an easy chair, specify; some rooms offer only kitchen chairs for seating. Due to COVID precautions, housekeeping only enters your room every 4 days. Otherwise, it's do-it-yourself. You can exchange dirty linen for clean anytime at the front desk. You can get extra bar soap, shampoo or dishwashing liquid anytime at the front desk. You must bag all garbage and put it in the bin closet on each floor. The front desk provides plenty of garbage bags & the bin closets are emptied frequently. Walls are paper thin - bring ear plugs in case you have neighbors! Front desk staff are cheerful & helpful. A popular hotel, so reserve in advance!

This is my 2nd stay with this hotel and again it does not disappoint. Perfect for my needs. Pool is clean, employees are friendly. You can tell it’s an older property, but they’re undergoing exterior renovations. Maybe interior is next. The property is CLEAN though. Rooms are clean, linens clean. After a week long stay at another extended stay in the area, which was horrible I’m glad I chose to come back to this!
