Spring Training lodging advice

Recommended Posts

My wife and I are going on our first (of many, hopefully) spring training vacation to Ft. Myers. Any "seasoned" Spring Trainers out there have any advice on hotels/motels/suites, ect. Lots of choices looking at the on-line travel sites.

Thanks in advance.

Come on, I didn't ask for the GPS coords to your secret walleye hole, just the name of a decent place you may have stayed at during spring training. j/k!!!

Thanks in advance.

I would stay on Marco Island - about 40 miles away but well worth the trip to stay on the ocean, great restaurants, etc. after the games. We have done this a number of times and enjoy it every year we go. Also on the way home you can stop in Naples and let the girls shop if they would like while the guys go bar hopping/people watching.

Thanks Peg,

Looking to stay in Ft. Myers, though. Unless Ft. Myers doens't have much to offer restaraunt, beach and shopping wise. Never been there. Your experience and advice is appreciated.

We went to spring training 2 yrs ago and loved it.We stayed at the Outrigger Fort myers beach. I loved it but the only prolem is if you stay on the island the traffic is BAD. We had to add around 1 1/2 to hours to our travel time to the game and back. The next time I will stay stay either to the north or south and just use the main highway to get to and from the ballpark. just my input

Also, consider getting to the game a couple hours before game time. The best experience at Spring Training is seeing batting practice and watching the Twins players interact with the fans. Gardy pretty much lets the players do anything during batting practice including signing kids autographs, throwing baseballs up in the crowds, etc. Also, if you are down there when they have an away game you might want to attend that game also - the Twins really give your kids their attention when they are one of the few Twins fans at the game. Enjoy!

Thanks Peg,

That's what we're really going down there for. Yes, warm weather is great, but I'd rather be at the park than the beach / shopping. Thanks again.

I was there back in 2002 and 2003. We stayed at the American Inn. There is alot of places to stay down there. The best beat is to look where the fields are, and find a place to stay from there.

Thanks BnS,

Just booked a room at same place the Twins & Bo Sox are at. Price wasn't at all bad, compared with alot of others,but not the cheapest either. Package still cheaper than I was planning. Close to both parks, restaraunts, and yes, shopping. cry Gotta make sure the wife think we're maxing the bank account so she doen't blow all my "fishing" funds. Thanks again for the reply.

schweady,

If I do make this an annual trip, and you're down there in a coule years, what are the odds you have some "Season's Eatings" left over from the Holidays to share with us?? wink

Good luck and congrats on the soon to be retirement.

      Yes, you can make good money at the casino, but I think that this is unstable earnings, and situational, if you play every day, you can get into very large debts. I was advised this casino - https://onlinecasinospill.no/ , I tried and made no mistake in choosing, there is a huge bonus system, constant promotions for any holidays and a bunch of different slots that only improve the game, also the probability of winning is quite high, I was able to earn a small amount of money, I advise you to try

      Филипп 9:29 In order to avoid unplanned expenses, you need to immediately discuss all the nuances with the contractor. In fact, there are many options. But it still seems to me that it can be done independently, even bulky things with several people can be loaded and moved on by themselves

      I agree with you, but not completely, because you can win once and bet a little more, that is, set aside 80% of the total amount, and then play for the remaining 20%, I think this is a good option, and in any case, a person will win

      As far as I know, there are several companies in Boston that are engaged in full professional relocation, it takes a little time, but they take enough money, I saw a couple of ads on the Internet about such work, you can also find performers of this order there

      For a long time I wanted to turn to a good programmer so that he would collect applications for mining for me, but I could not find it and abandoned this business, now this thought is returning. I came up with such an application that no one has, but no one can assemble it, everyone refuses. I looked at the site that you advise, quickly read it, this company made a good impression on me, I will carefully read it in the evening, then I will contact them and if they agree with my idea, I will order.

      The creek  bite has been nothing short of awesome as we come to the end of Sep.... Some days are definitely better than others, but even the slow days plenty of fish can be caught if you put in a little time and effort.   3 and 4 inch z-man plastics as well as grub style plastics have been getting the job done for me again this week.  Also been using some number 5 shad raps just to change things up a bit... 😁
