We spent two lovely evenings at the Shalimar in one of the rooms in the two-storey motel building. It was spacious and very clean, nicely appointed. I enjoyed an excellent complimentary wireless internet connection, and if we had stayed longer we would no doubt have made use of the little kitchenette. It was nice to a fridge for and the option of preparing food. The room had a wonderful screened in balcony overlooking the gorgeous beach, facing the side of the island on which the sun sets. It was such a treat to sit out on that balcony, and to have the doors open at night, to fall asleep to the gulf breeze and sound of the surf. We only needed to walk out the door to enjoy a walk on the beach, one of the nicest I’ve ever visited. The shelling we did in front of the Shalimar was some of the best we found on the island. The staff was courteous and the location could not have been better. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We were in Room 15

Shalimar offers rooms and cottages. We selected a room and were rewarded with a wonderful studio room; tiny kitchen, huge king sized bed, dressers, a desk, two cosy chairs, a dining table for two and a marvelous screened porch, with another table for two. The room was perfectly situated to allow us to watch beach sunsets. Shalimar is right at the beach, just an awesome place. The only shortfall for the rooms is that they are not perfectly insulated for sound. But all in all an amazing couple of days of owning ideal beach front property. The rooms are wonderfully decorated in a shell/ island theme, and everything you need for dishes or pans is in the kitchen.

This was our first stay at Shalimar, and when I walked into our room #9 it was decorated just like our own home. It was so bright, clean, and had a well equipped kitchen. We had a beautiful gulf view from our first floor motel room. The staff was very nice and helpful. We will definitely be going back to Shalimar.

Room Tip: Lower floor had foot traffic noise. The first night was normal, but the people that came in the second night were heavy footed walkers and spent a lot of time walking back and forth constantly.

We stayed on the second floor of the motel and our room was very clean and well equiped. Kitchenette had all the items needed for cooking and clean up. The bed was very comfortable. Slept like a baby. The screened-in balcony had great views and the "no-seeums" couldn't get'cha. We went during the month of October and the property was very quiet and the beach was quite deserted. Shelling was great right out your back door. Recommend eating at The Island Cow, reasonable prices, and Traditions, higher priced but great food, on Sanibel and Keylime Bistro on Captiva. A must see is the sunset from Mucky Duck's on Captiva. Highly recommend this property.

This was my third visit to Shalimar and what an improvement! Last year I stayed there with friends and gave it four stars only because we felt it could use some updating (sheets, floors, fixtures, upholstery). Last week I entered a lovely room at the Motel and everything looked new. As always no one on the Island can beat how close it is to the beach and the beautiful views from our private decks. The pool was clean and in excellent condition allowing my grandsons hours of fun when we changed locations from beach to pool. An excellent choice.

Room Tip: If using the Motel stay as close to the beach as you can get.
