“WOW!!”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

Spent the weekend May 5, 2012. Stayed in the apartment suite 401. This property is the cleanest and most well kept on the beach!! Having lived here in the Fort Myers area for 16 years, i often stay on the beach. I was so happy and surprised at this wonderful hotel. I will stay here everytime I go to the beach!! AWESOME!!! Thank you Edison Beach House!!

Room Tip: No need to bring anything but foos if you choose to cook. Everthing there!! No detail missed.

We were looking for a beach front location for just a couple of nights, and boy does the Edison House have the perfect location!
The beach is gorgeous, and the hotel maintains the sand in front so it is perfect.
We were on a small unit on the 3rd floor. To sit out on your deck and watch the sunset, really is paradise. Since the room has a full sized fridge and kitchen, you save on food and wine/cocktails to go with that view.
The owners could not be more friendly or accomodating.
Just some issues you should be aware of in the small units at least. The counter space in the bathroom is very small, the washer/dryer is in the bath, and we used that for extra counter space.
Our unit had a double bed and single.
I could not sleep on the double the mattress was so bad, but the single mattress was obviously newer and I could sleep there with no pain. Anyone with back issues should be aware.
Florida is still part of the "South" where tobacco, not cotton is king. So unlike most areas up North, smoking is still allowed in just about every restaurant and tavern. Edison House is at least banning smoking in the units which is a start. Yes, they allow it on the balconies. I guess if you want a truly smoke free experience, you will have to pay for it at a higher end chain, and if it is that important to you that is what you should do. Quite honestly you probably are not going to enjoy much of Ft. Myers if you have serious trouble with cigarette smoke, the area attracts smokers.
It was so much fun to be able to walk to the "Times Square" area of Ft. Myers beach and have a drink, a meal or rent some beach chairs and an umbrella.
Would surely stay at the Edison House again.

Room Tip: Try for a room overlooking the gulf. Just gorgeous all the way around!!

We almost gave up on Ft. Myers, and then we found the Edison Beach House: impeccable, right on the beach with soothing waves, large beautifully decorated rooms with full kitchen and separate bedroom, walking distance to fun shops and restaurants. Not at all overpriced. Wow!

We booked the Edison Beach House when another friend had let us know she and her kids were going to be there for a week in April. Another couple ended up joining us for a couple of days, as well. We have traveled extensively throughout the world, and we just had a great vacation both because of the company and the accomodations. The EBB is not fancy, but it met all our needs for a several days right on the beach. We had Suite E on the 3rd Floor. I was a little concerned that there might be "pool noise," as it overlooks the pool, but it really was not an issue. And the view on that side is great, especially the full on ocean view and then the sunsets. The 4th Floor would have been nice, but the elevator is very slow, so we ended up using the stairs most of the time (good workout), and the 3rd Floor worked out just fine. The place is spotless and there is daily maid service. The kitchen is FULLY stocked with just about anything you could imagine needing for preparing and serving food, so be sure to check-in first before heading to the Publix or the Super Target. Otherwise, you may buy stuff that is already provided. One of our party found the fresh fish market nearby and got some incredible grouper and shrimp. Not that we intended it to be this way, but we ended up just eating in each other's rooms for almost every meal, with the exception of maybe one lunch (lots of places within walking distance) and one dinner. It made for great visiting and the kids just hung out on the beach. I must say, having a washer/dryer is a plus. The beach is great (lots of activities within walking distance -- SeaDoos, parasailing, banana boats). The sand is like powdered sugar and is "groomed" regularly. Everyone on staff was lovely, especially Lisa from Louisville! The EBB is, in my opinion, perfect for reunions of family and friends. You each have your own area, but can get together and share meals and good times because you are so close to each other. We will be back!

Room Tip: The rooms on the north side overlook the pool, but the noise was not troublesome and the views on th...

Entire staff was very courteous and helpful with information, and also very responsive to requests and needs. Facility was clean,quiet, and well maintained. Location is perfect, a short walk to the Pier and Time Square. Free parking. Most rooms have great views of ocean and beach, with private balconies.

Room Tip: All rooms have great views. However, balconies/rooms on the south side of complex are shielded from...
