The hosts, Alex and Connie are extremely welcoming and helpful and the good standard of rooms in such a stunning setting make this a quiet and relaxing place to spend some time in the Florida sun. I really can’t give this place higher praise.

Spent one night their on a business trip. Really felt like in vacation on a remote place of the Caribbean. The owners are very welcoming and helpful. We might go back there just for pleasure. This is a tiny place with only a few very comfortable rooms.

We were in Ft. Myers Beach over recent spring break and we needed to find an available hotel room just for our last night. We happened upon this hotel and they had a vacancy for us. It was the best place we stayed during our entire trip and if I am in Ft. Myers Beach again this will be my...

Quiet, comfortable and close to everything, restaurants, beach and shops. Nice view of the lagoon. Very clean! Could use a little updating! The mattress and pillows could use a update, but still comfortable. A nice continental breakfast every morning. The owners are very very nice and were very accommodating to my husband and I.

We stayed here during February. Such a great place, very clean and comfortable. The owners take great care of both the guests and the Inn itself. We had plenty of room to relax. We enjoyed sitting out on the dock by the lagoon and watching the fish, dolphin, and pelicans. We also appreciated the heated pool. The location is great,...

My husband and I ended up getting a room for one night (last minute) at this highly-rated B&B. The innkeepers, Axel and Connie, were so friendly and accommodating. They let us check in early and bent over backwards to give us whatever we needed. The location can't be beat...just 1/2 block from the main drag with restaurants and shops galore!...

We have really enjoyed finding these small, locally owned hotels when we travel. They are so much nicer than the big box hotels. Manatee is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun. We really enjoyed watching for fish jumping, boats, and other wildlife. The hotel, though not fancy (which we prefer!) is clean and a nice space... we...

As other reviewers have said, Axel and Connie were friendly hosts who clearly love what they do. They are always tending to their pride and joy ...the lovely and intimate Manatee Bay Inn. We stayed in an apartment that isn't listed on their website...an upgrade with plenty of room. We also stayed in #3 ....which was absolutely fine as well....

We Stay at Manatee bay in for five nights, 2 adults and one teenager. We just love this little , cozy place. The Inn is privately owned and all day looked after by owner, therefore very clean and well maintained. Two small pools and beautiful view to the little canal. Extended continental breakfast in a small area where all guests...
