Went to Sanibel Island on honeymoon.

Stayed at the Sanibel Inn and this was fantastic. Very nice and clean hotel to absolutely reasonable price.
The hotel is situated direct to a beautiful beach with bounty-island-like water.
The pool at the hotel is wonderful too.

My husband and I have never been to Sanibel Island. I found the Sanibel Inn on trip Advisor and we had a wonderful time. The room was very nice, clean and comfortable. We had dinner on Saturday evening at the Sea Star Cafe. Philip was our waiter.. He was very knowledgeable regarding the menu and attentive throughout our meal. My husband and I both had the filet mignonette. Our meal was excellent! Philip brought Chef Ed to our table to meet us. We both complimented him on our meal

Beautiful old seaside inn - reminds us of a trip to the coast of Maine - only better weather and warmer ocean temps. All the staff went out of their way to answer questions and make recommendations. Beautiful location - great gulf views - enjoyed coffee on the porch watching the sunrises. Great meals right at the Inn - so if you don't feel like driving, you can walk to the Sea Star cafe or down to the pool side bar - where the staff ran food from the restaurant down to the pool. Lounge chairs, towels, beach umbrellas waiting for your use on the beach. Good surf fishing to pass the time and lots of shells to collect. Over-all a very relaxing, enjoyable stay. Would definitely return to the Sanibel Inn.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better ocean views.

My wife and I have been coming to SI for 27 years. When the kids were traveling with us we would stay in a condo. Now that it is just the two of us this is the only place that we will stay. Very nice rooms with a view of the gulf. They have everything that you need. We love this place!

I was lucky enough o happen upon this hotel my first trip to the island, and unfortunately didn't stay there on my second trip, but stayed at the Holiday Inn instead and won't make that mistake again! This hotel has the easiest beach access. Large upscale rooms with kitchenettes. Every balcony has large comfy furniture. My favorite part to this hotel is the pool! Always up for a midnight swim!

My wife and I stayed at the SI as we celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. As we pulled up I first noticed that the Inn was a bit old but cozy and inviting. The front desk staff, Ms. Shahana was a delight! So very nice and helpful and made us feel welcome. Sometimes your overall experience at a hotel starts with your first communication with staff at check in. Fantastic! The room was clean and comfortable, no problems. We did participate in the romantic getaway and used our $75 credit at the Sea Star. The night we went it had been raining and the roof had a couple leaks that the staff was working to resolve as best they could. The waiter we had mentioned that he was new but very friendly so we overlooked some minor issues with service as other staff also checked on tables as a joint effort. The food was absolutely fantastic! My only complaint is that at dinner service there were two staff members wearing shorts, which I have an issue with. But since the food was so good I overlooked that as well. The amenities offered were sufficient and plenty. The pool side bar was a plus, and the girl serving was also very nice. We would certainly stay there again and look forward to it.

We stayed here for 3 nights. Very clean and like previous reviewer said bed sheets were crisp and looked brand new. We loved that everything is close by. The beach, restaurant and close to main road, what else could you ask for. Beach umbrellas and beach chairs available along with bikes and kayak for everyone...even kid size bikes for the little ones. Would stay here again.
