932 Third Street, Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931, United States of America – Show map
Excellent location – rated 9.6/10! (score from 139 reviews)
Rated by guests after their stay at Manatee Bay Inn.
While on honeymoon vacation in 1990 Axel and Connie felt in love with this quaint little island. There was no place like Fort Myers Beach for them. In 1993 they decided to move for good from Frankfurt/Germany to Fort Myers Beach and opened up the first B&B on Fort Myers Beach in 2003. They named it after their favourite species - "Manatee Bay Inn". The manatees are visible during the months of May to November in the little "lagoon" behind their property.

Air conditioner in window of bedroom....noisy, blasting all night to get/keep temperature at about 75F.
There was absolutely nothing we did not enjoy about the Manatee Bay Inn. Highly recommend this wonderful B&B
A hidden treasure in Fort Myers, we had the owners ex apartment which was stunning for a short stay. Bed was really comfy, wonderful shower, and fantastic living area. Connie and Axel were perfect hosts.
I have nothing bad to say about the Manatee Bay Inn.
We love the outdoor patio with pool also had a little dock. Although it's right in the center of time square you wouldn't know it by the quaint surroundings. Surprisingly, I would recommend it to small family so if they want to stay in the area where they could easily get to everything. The house is on site and is also the owner he takes pride in his inn and is very friendly. The prices were great for the area I love the beach cottage style interior decorations.
Only con for me was noise level from the guests on the 2nd floor. Constantly walking around and very 'heavy footed'.
Air conditioning unit was loud since it was in the closet in the bedroom but ear plugs helped. Ceiling fan in bedroom would be helpful.
Great host/hostess, very clean, nice location with relaxing outdoor facilities
Railings round the pool outside our room spoilt the view-no railings round the other pool! Air conditioning was very noisy
Location is great-on the bay,lovely view,but just a minute from the bars and restaurants of Ft.Myers Beach-but no noise! Inn keepers and staff are really friendly and helpful. Perfect location fo a few days on the beach. Free allocated parking-excellent
There was nothing i didn't like about my stay here.. Recommend this for anyone looking to stay there, most of important for the age of the place it's very clean and well kept.
Just a very clean property, it's a little old but very well kept. The staff was super nice and couldn't have spent better money in Fort Meyers for a hotel.. Everything you needed and would want to do is in walking distance.. Perfect place to stay, I'm picky and have nothing bad to say about my stay there
Great location, quaint cozy room. The owner, Connie couldn't have been more accommodating. Really lovely woman. We would definitely stay again in the future.
I could not think of any negative comment at all
The accommodation is first class and so very very clean . We loved the upstairs apartment overlooking the pool and the closeness of the decking for afternoon drinks and sunbathing !! Connie provided an extensive breakfast everyday with lots variety and it was nice to chat with other guests over breakfast .valerie our housekeeper was a star and we were very pampered with her attention to detail in that area . Overall the owners , staff and location of this Inn were superb and we would definitely recommend it to anyone .
The view from the patio, lots of birds to see from the comfort of a lounge chair
Very relaxing holiday we will be going back
Pretty small for the money
Very quaint and tropical feeling
Check out was at 11am. We asked the owner if we could leave at 11h30 because we were running a bit late. She said no, because she is expecting other guests... In my opinion 30 mins doesn't make any difference, wasn't very commercial of her... It is too bad there aren't any possibilities to rent bikes.
It looks more like a bed and breakfast than a real hotel in my opinion. Very cute spacious clean rooms, with a little living and our own little kitchen. We had a nice view of some lake in front of the hotel, really nice and relaxing, with swimming pool. Breakfast is complimentary, not a lot of choices though, but very nice to share it with other guests. It is like being home.. Free phone and free parking! Friendly staff overall.
The Time Square area is a bit busy but if you drive a bit further along the beaches are very quiet
Wonderful position. Great breakfast. Lovely to sit outside and watch the pelicans fish.
1st room very small 2 nd room ok. Little choice for breakfast
Location very easy parking back up to room very close to everything but not noisy
Bed was hard
Location, facilities, staff
They wouldn't let us live there - lol !
Always a pleasure staying here.
Noisy air conditioning.
Stepping straight out of apartment and into the pool. Just a very short walk to shops, restaurants. Warm welcome.
Having to leave!
Beautiful apartment. A little homely, welcoming oasis a stones through from the beach. Great restaurants nearby. loves the pool with sun-loungers. We will be back for sure and would not go anywhere else. Staff and owners so happy. This place cannot be improved upon at all...Perfect.
Breakfast did not have much to offer.
The facility was well kept and clean. Loved the pools and quietness. Liked the fact that you could walk to the beach and location was just a stones throw to the stores, restaurants, and boardwalk.
Place was clean, but basic. Staff was friendly. $150 was far overpriced.
Nice location, close to a lively centre
The location was superb, especially if you know the area of Fort Myers Beach like my family does. Walking distance to everything, including the beach. The hotel was minutes away from the hustle and bustle but when you returned to the hotel, it was quiet and peaceful. The hotel is only small and was well run. We had room 1 next to small pool which I can recommend as we had that pool to ourselves virtually and our room had excellent views of the boat dock and small canal inlet. Will definitely return. Thank you to manager Axel who was very laid back and welcoming
