Service??? What service???

by TripAdvisor Member lindasp62

We arrived on a Sunday evening for a one night stay. When we got to the hotel, it was about 5:30 pm. Where was everyone? Nobody at the door, nobody to assist with luggage, no car parkers/valet....nobody! I went inside the hotel, and there was one woman at the front desk...eating her dinner. She informed me that nobody was around to help us with our luggage;they had all gone home. And, we had about 7 suitcases (heavy) !! I asked if there might be a maintenance man who could help us as we have bad backs, and she said they had all gone home, too. So, she offered us a luggage cart...and we had to load the luggage ourselves and take it up to our room on the fifth floor ourselves. WHen we got tot the room, i saw that the door was ajar, and when we went in, the bed was only halfway made, and there were no towels in the bathroom. It looked like someone quit the housekeeping midway. When I called the lone woman at the front desk, she thought that all the housekeeping must have gone home, too, but she did manage to find someone. Luckily, we speak some Spanish, so we were able to ask the housekeeper about what had/hadn't been done and what we wanted. She took care of everytthing. There is no restaurant at the hotel whatsoever, so we went out to eat. Later, when my husband went to the machine to get a Coke, there was none... Big surprise! As well, we were not impressed with the free continental breakfast. It was just mediocre offerings. Overall, we thought this hotel was no better than a Holiday Inn.

Flawless beautiful hotel

by TripAdvisor Member spuckle

We stayed at the Inn at Pelican Bay for a few days on our honeymoon Florida tour. Naples itself is by far the nicest place we visitied. The staff and amenities at the hotel were superb. The rooms were spotless with huge comfy beds.

Someone complained about lack of valet parking: why would you need valet parking - the carpark is right outside the door of the hotel?!

The concierges were very helpful in making recommendations and booking reservations - recommend Bha Bha's Persian restaurant across the road, and Bistro 581 on Fifth Ave S.

Breakfasts were great (and they did have 'normal' tea, contrary to a previous review).
The whole setting is beautiful - the pool is lovely and, although small, was never too busy.
Free PC with broadband is a great added extra too.

Reminds me of my trip to Italy

by TripAdvisor Member FL_Native_2006

This hotel is just fabulous. It is very reasonably priced! Great location just off the main thoroughfare in Naples, and near beach. Spacious room and bathroom. Nicely decorated. Friendly staff. Wonderful free breakfast. Beautiful grounds, outdoor dining patio, pool, whirlpool. Ground floor rooms offer sliding glass door with patio and a gate from the patio to the pool / walkway / lake. And flat panel LCD TV's in the rooms (42" I believe) is the icing on the cake. I will certainly stay at this hotel again when I visit the area.

Comfort with a great little breakfast!

by TripAdvisor Member cantrum

Enjoyed a short break here after travelling round New England in the wind, rain and snow! So idea was rest and relaxation and sun - all of which was in abundance at this lovely almost luxurious hotel. Very comfortable rooms - huge, comfortable bed plus sofa and the usual furniture, flat screen TV for all those channels! The balcony overlooks the pool and beyond to a lovely lake and then the skyline of Naples.
The staff were without exception, friendly and very helpful. Highest standards of decor and well managed and very clean. The breakfast is a bonus, plenty of choice and best enjoyed on the veranda (overhead fans) overlooking the lake. There's also tea and biscuits in the afternoon. A pleasant surprise - go there! As is so often the case you'll need a car to get to the huge range of dining choices and wonderful shops in Naples.

Couldn't have been better!!

by TripAdvisor Member leaptoit

From the start to finish, Flawless stay. I travel a lot and have learned to live with some disappointment when traveling however, the Inn did NOT disappoint in anyway. The staff was incredible and the accommodations where fabulous. Definitely check this one out.
The Continental breakfast was great, the bar is cozy and the location is perfect for whatever you are looking to do in Naples.
Thank you to Thea & Kristin who made our stay priceless.

We will be back

by TripAdvisor Member E-voyages

We had decided to stay at this hotel because it was not too expensive compared to other hotels in Naples and we had read that it had been recently renovated. What a surprise when we arrived there, the hotel is just amazing, the service was great at checking, the room was large, modern and beautifully appointed. We had asked for a deluxe room, which mainly provides you wih high-speed internet (complimentary) in the room as well as a balcony with a magnificient view of the small lake behing the hotel, it was well worth the extra dollars. We enjoyed eating our complimentary breakfast every morning on the patio as well as the heated pool. We will go back for sure!

Nice spot

by TripAdvisor Member Davidbel

The hotel was of high quality and a reasonable price for what you get. The room had an excellent view and was well apointed. The only issues were a noisy a/c and breakfast was overcrowded making it difficult to get served. But you got a nearly full breakfast. The pool was small and the hot tub not very hot. The location is excellent and not too crowded whach can be a problem in Naples. The bed was excellent.

Excellent, comfortable hotel.

by TripAdvisor Member Guidor

7 miles north of Naples. The hotel is comfortable and offers a tasty breakfast, comfortable rooms and free business internet access. Courteous staff who are pleased to help at all times.

Good hotel experience

by TripAdvisor Member hptn

A comfortable, quiet hotel with pleasant staff. No need to pay for resort features is all you want is a hotel. Their "scenic lake" is an attractive tiny pond with a fountain. The swimming pool is shallow and very small. Location is good, many restaurants within walking distance. Everything was in good working order. Guests were of all ages. We would return.

OK place for a quick get away

by TripAdvisor Member PattyLovesToTravel

My husband and I just returned from a 3 day getaway weekend at the Inn at Pelican Bay. It's a small hotel with a great location. Plenty of shops, restaurants and food stores within walking distance. Vanderbilt Beach is a short drive from the hotel. The hotel has a small pool, with pretty landscaping next to a pond with a lovely water fountain. The pool deck area is very disappointing. Very few lounge chairs as space is limited. The hotel staff was courteous and efficient, housekeeping was okay. They offer a deluxe continental breakfast included with the room, however it can be difficult finding a clean table. One nice feature is the small bar in the lobby. NIce for a late afternoon drink. The rooms have a small fridge and microwave, no table in the room, but there is a small balcony with a table and 2 chairs. I would not return to this hotel if we planned to spend time at the pool, I'd definitely find a hotel with a larger pool and deck.

Naples vs Marco Island

by nicros

I'm coming over for 2 weeks in spetember with my boyfriend. We enjoy shopping, cinema & wlaking on the beaches. MAybe a few days out at zoo's etc. Would you reccomend Marco Island over Naples? The 2 hotels we are considering are Radisson on Marco Island or residence inn in Naples.

RE: Naples vs Marco Island

by Travmad

I think Naples would be your better choice by far. The beaches are nice the food great it's easy to get around. you will love it.

RE: Naples vs Marco Island

by Foriano

If you have a rental car during your vacation, Marco Island is your better choice. The Radisson is a resort on the beach, where you can walk north and south with much privacy, since this is a private beachfront area. Shelling is great the further north you walk. Across Gulf Shore Boulevard not more than 1/8 mile north of the Radisson is a theater and retail shops.

Naples is only 18 miles away, so a day outing there is easy. You can visit and shop the incredibly expensive, but exhilarting, Fifth Avenue South retail stores and enjoy the luxurious flora and warmth of the sunshine. Third Street South is another shopping area worth taking the time to find and shop around the unsually appealing boutiques. Further north near Old Naples is the Coastland Center which features 4 department stores and 150 specialty retailers. Quite a bit further north is Village on Venetion Bay and Waterside Shops at Pelican Bay. Naples beach has great public accesses, and you don't want to miss walking out on the Naples Pier at night. It's a local gathering place and the locals fish snook and mackeral, and shine them at night, so you can see their outlines along the pier.

I would definitely recommend Naples. I've stayed in both and always found more of the activities you want to do in Naples.
