It has been awhile since we have been to Banana Bay - we sure missed it. They redid some of the rooms, very comfortable beds, nice floors (instead of rug). We had a wonderful stay. Caught a bunch of fish, hung in the very nice pool and enjoyed the beautiful sunsets. Staff was great, can't say enough about this place....

Really nice accommodations. Located right on the shore of Charlotte Bay. The rooms are clean and well maintained. It has pretty landscaping with lots of flowers and a nice pool. Great 500 foot pier for fishing and boating. Pet friendly. New mattresses. The management is friendly and accommodating.

We needed pet friendly accommodations while our motor home was being repaired. Banana Bay not only is pet friendly but a quaint old Florida style motel on Charlotte Bay. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and well equipped. We enjoyed a brand new king bed. All waterfront rooms were updated with new mattresses and box springs...

The kitchenette we rented was just ok. It is an older place with those kinds of issues. Refrigerator door didn't close, no handles in the shower and bathroom was extremely small. Sheets and towels were clean, but worn thin. The AC did work well, and the place seemed secure. The pool was great, and we had a waterfront room which...

We've stayed at Banana Bay several times now. The motel rooms are small efficiencies with stove and full size refrigerator. There's a long pier with good fishing and a very nice salt water pool. It's a very comfortable place to relax and close to a lot of other activities. It's also a great spot for bird watching and dolphin spotting.

We have been going to Banana Bay for 5 yrs now. Love the scenery, restaurants and shopping. My husband can be found at the end of the pier anytime. Have made many friends there. Will continue to go every year. Love Banana Bay.

I recently stayed here because I was in town for business meetings. I was surprised that this area does not have any "chain" type hotels. Anyway, my husband was with me so I felt comfortable here. The rooms are basic. The kitchen is fine. The AC I do not like. The lighting is okay. Just a place to hang out....

Having travelled to Port Charlotte for many years as a family, it was time for us to look for a different property that reflected our empty-nest status. Considering the advice of TripAdvisor followers, we booked an 8 night stay at the Banana Bay Motel after Christmas. We are extremely happy we did! Banana Bay is a lovely little property surrounded...
