 This mini-resort is NOT just for sleeping!  It's for doing or not doing.  So many things you can do or just relax on the property, swim, fish, grill & chill, walk to dinner & dancing! 



P.S. We have free wireless and blow dryers, so bring your laptop and your hair!




We are located directly on beautiful Charlotte Harbor! Our waterfront resort features not only expansive views of Charlotte Harbor and spectacular sunsets, but also all of the fun, relaxation, and charm that you would expect from your perfect getaway retreat. 

In fact, we are the ONLY public lodging where

you can walk out your door and
    BE ON THE WATER!        

  We offer both motel rooms and fully equipped kitchenettes.  Enjoy a variety of nearby restaurants and shopping!  Just over the bridge from historic downtown Punta Gorda and Fisherman's Village.  

Rent a kayak rental and tour the shoreline of Charlotte Harbor as well as the beauty of the Peace River.

              Our 500 ft. dock will provide your "catch of the day" for dinner!  Just clean it and cook it on our gas grills! 

Life here is very friendly and casual.  You'll feel right at home!  Bring your boat
if you like!  There is no extra charge!      


We believe you'll be very happy here, but don't take our word for it! Go to tripadvisor.com and type in "Banana Bay Motel Port Charlotte Florida."  You'll find a bunch of honest evaluations to help you make your decision!   Hope to see you soon! Cool

• Fort Myers (RSW)is 50 minutes south and very pleasant with good pricing. 

• Punta Gorda (PGD) is 10 minutes south, great pricing and very convenient. 

• Sarasota Airport (SRQ) is only 45 minutes away but is slightly higher in price.

• Tampa Airport (TPA) is 1.5 hrs north and although a little cheaper, can be confusing and crowded.

• Orlando Airport (ORL) is 3 hours north but could be convenient if doubling up with a Disney vacation.
