Experiencing The Fairways Inn of Naples: A Review from Naples, Florida

A last-minute trip to Naples left us with very few options for lodging. I found a couple of places for over $600 a night, but they didn’t even look worth a third of that price from their web sites! I finally ran across The Fairways Inn, with one room available.

Getting to The Fairways Inn of Naples

The Fairways Inn is located in North Naples. It is 131 miles (2-hour drive) from the Miami airport and 32 miles (34-minute drive) from Fort Myers. The closest beach (Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park) is an easy five-minute drive.

The Resort

Located at the edge of a quite neighborhood, the hotel has an old Florida charm. The choices of lodging are rooms, suites, and Kitchenettes.

 The Check-in

The check-in was old style and included a handwritten sign in and metal door key. The process was slow, but pleasant.

 Our Suite

We stayed in the two room Efficiency. It had been recently remodeled and was very clean.

Parking was right at the door, which we loved!

Hotel Grounds and Amenities

The grounds are one and a half acres of tropical gardens. Many places to sit and relax, a shuffle board court, and an oversize pool are nestled within the lush landscape. It was the perfect mix of complete solitude and visiting with other hotel guest.

Other amenities include:

Complimentary bottle of water in room

Shuffleboard court

Complimentary wi-fi

Pet-Friendly Rooms

Dining and Drinks

Dining onsite is a light breakfast served in the garden pavilion each morning from 7 to 10.

Overall Impression

The place is older, but the rooms are spotless and the grounds are well maintained.

The location is perfect to attractions, shopping, dining, and the beach. All are within a 20-minute drive.

The price is unbeatable for the area. Rooms run less than $200 while most of the rooms in Naples start at $350.

We would recommend a stay and would love to go back ourselves.

Happy Travels!
