Overlooking Naples Bay and situated on shop-lined 5th Avenue
One of the most sophisticated towns in southwestern Florida, Naples is a golfer's paradise, with more than 80 wonderful golf courses around the area. It's a sprawling town so visitors will probably need to have a car to move around, but the downtown area has an upscale shopping district, a few art galleries, and a wide array of restaurants for strolling. However, there’s little to do besides going to the beach, and there is no nightlife whatsoever -- it’s more of a retirement community than a party spot or a place to go with the kids.
The Bayfront Inn has a quaint and convenient location on 5th Avenue, near shops and restaurants and overlooking Naples Bay. The 91-room hotel is a step above some nearby hotels in a similar price range: It has stylish rooms with classic decor and modern bathrooms, a secluded tree-surrounded pool area with a nice water feature, and numerous rooms with attractive bay views. However, the pool is small, there is no fitness center, and only suites have mini-fridges and microwaves.
