We absolutely loved this hotel and we will be back. We had a screened in deck that overlooked the pool but you could also see the ocean from our window. The beds were very comfy, and the room was very clean. Also, it was quiet. We enjoyed taking the short walk to the beach every day, looking for seashells and...

You will never go wrong in staying at the Sanibel Inn! We have been coming here for 15 years and the staff alone makes you feel it was worthwhile - from checking in, to the restaurant, to the pool area, to the bar, to the beach, even housekeeping - everyone employed at the Inn are awesome! You will never regret...

We recently stayed here for 3 days and would definitely return. All the staff was exceptional. Our room was very clean and they very quickly fixed an issue we had with the air conditioner. The food at the pool bar was outstanding and comes from the restaurant. We never had a problem getting bikes when we wanted and someone always...

My husband and I stayed here on mini honeymoon. We wanted somewhere that wasn't far to fly and wasn't too touristy. It was very easy to get to from the Ft. Myers airport, and upon arriving (early) they didn't mind checking to see if our room was ready early. Our suite was very nice. I chose a gulf side view...

We were lucky and got upgraded due to the fact they oversold some rooms. We loved the room we ended up in. Very comfortable for a family of 4, with a little kitchenette, screened in balcony, and the pull out was perfect. It was a very rainy week that we were there so even when it was pouring we were...

While being an older property, our ocean view room was both spacious, clean, and updated. The pool was sparkling clean, with water toys for children, and the umbrella/lounge chair service on the beach was much appreciated. Being the summer, and hot during the afternoons, we were pleasantly surprised to see so many European guests. The staff - from the front...

If you're looking for a nice, reasonably priced hotel on the beach, you've found your spot. The rooms have been updated, beds are very comfortable, rooms are clean. Shower pressure and hot water weren't great but acceptable.The buildings themselves are older and have low ceilings. The pool is small and nothing special. There are boogie boards, sand toys, and floats...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Immerse yourself in nature at Sanibel Inn. The Inn offers a wide variety of accommodations and amenities surrounded by beautiful gardens and tropical palms. Come to Sanibel Inn to discover why Sanibel Island was just ranked #1 Favorite Worldwide Destination by Arthur Frommer and #5 Top US Beach by Trip Advisor. Just like the tropical flowers in the gardens, Sanibel Inn reflects the colors of the island. From the brightly painted exteriors to the warm soothing interiors of the guestrooms and suites, Sanibel Inn provides a relaxing and comfortable beach hideaway in one of the newly renovated guestrooms and one bedroom suites. Sanibel Inn also offers two-bedroom condominiums that are perfect for families or larger group of friends who wish to stay together. The Sea Star Café is located at the Inn and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with traditional café fare with an island twist. Sanibel Island is all about nature. Discover nature up close by bike via the 22 miles of paved bike and walking trails. Visit J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to see a variety of migratory birds and explore an undeveloped mangrove ecosystem. Take a walk on the beaches and find rare shells such as the Junonia or 200 other species of shells. Take to the waters of the Gulf by kayak for a different point of view. Feel like a friendly tennis match, Sanibel Inn has a newly refurbished court on the grounds of the Inn or visit The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Sanibel Inn guests are also invited to golf at The Dunes where the greens wind through 75 acres of natural lake view fairways and Audubon Cooperative Society wetlands. After a morning of exploration, unwind by the pool and bathe in the warm Florida sun. Just steps away, the Beach Bar offers cool libations and poolside snacks. Sanibel Inn offers a gateway to the various activities on Sanibel and the perfect spot for a relaxing day in the sun. ... more   less
