One of the best kept secrets in Naples is The Gondolier Inn on 8th Avenue South. It is a taste of Old Florida in the heart of Olde Naples, and it's a pleasant walk to the beach, 5th Avenue (restaurants and shops), Cambier Park (band concerts and art shows), and the 3rd Street Historic District (Naples Pier, Saturday Farmer's Market,...

I found the Gondolier through this site, called the owner and left a message; Henry called me back within minutes. Though he prefers longer term rentals, he worked with me and put me in a vacant unit for a few days. Liked it so much I extended my stay. What I liked has been mentioned in other reviews and is...

great location, short walk to beach and downtown & shopping. Very friendly owner operator. Rooms have retro look and are small. Made me feel like I was in Key west. Owner has beach chairs, umbrellas, books to borrow.

I loved this small old motel in Old Naples, located four blocks from the beach, and three blocks from the shops and restaurants on Old Naples’ 5th Avenue. The Gondolier was built, and has been owned and operated by the same family for 55 years. It’s located in a very nice residential neighborhood. The rooms are retro – the dining...

Location is the winner. We parked the Car on Day 1 and didn't really need it for the 3 days that we stayed. Walking distance to the stunning Naples beaches. The owner had a trove of beach related items, Chairs, Lilo's etc. that he was more than happy to lend to us. knowledgeable and friendly owners that are very accommodating....

It's all about location at The Gondolier, and about old Florida tradition. The Gondolier is reminiscent of the 50's, slightly faded and appealing, set among the mansions of an upscale neighborhood. Henry Harer, the proprietor, is hands-on, happy to supply everything from beach chairs and towels to glimpses of Naples history. The property is well-maintained and within a five to...

Clean, functional, quiet, great location. We got avocadoes from the owner as a gift, and got to stay past checkout time because no new occupant expected. Lots of maps and brochures available, as well as beach towels and chairs.

Life in the slow lane. I love it more than the big 5 Star places. This is the place that I go to unwind - I keep going back year after year to the place that brings a smile to my face every time. It's the best - I love it.

No Ritz-Carlton for me! If you want the best location in town, 3 short blocks from the beach, clean, comfortable rooms with kitchens and all the amenities you will ever need, consider staying at the Gondolier Inn. We were delighted to stay in this cozy, independently owned and reasonably priced motel in early May, 2010. We couldn’t have been more...

Very nice; not fancy. Quiet! Excellent bargain. Really great for a pleasant relaxed getaway. Not luxurious, but has far more than appears at first glance. If you can handle just a little walking, the beach is most accessible. I was not "vacationing" on my stay, but would like to do so in future, and would gladly stay again.
