Reviews of American House Fort Myers

  • Needs improvements

    The people are friendly, but they lack consistency on laundry and cleaning.

  • Built less than a year ago. Apartments are a bit smaller than others we have seen. Staff seems to still be learning rules and procedures. Several questions were answered with “I don’t think so” or could not...

  • Love my mom’s place

    I absolutely Love American House for my mom, everyone is wonderful! They really care for everyone that is there!
