It's been 2 years since I have been there but both times we stayed it was AWESOME. Great location, people are very friendly and accommodating to your needs. The lagoon out back is great, kayaks available to take a leisurely ride. Everything about this place it great. Planning next trip in March/April 2016.

The Dolphin Inn has a casual, friendly ambiance. The staff is unfailingly friendly. The pool is lovely and the location can't be beat. Our room was small but serviceable, complete with fridge, two burners, and sink - and cupboards stocked with everything you'd need to cook and eat. Our travel-mates got the three room apartment which was palatial. We made... More

We arrived at the Dolphin on a Tuesday and were lucky to find a room. When we checked in, the staff were incredibly enthusiastic with all a sorts of ideas for us. After we checked in, we used the kayaks provided by the Dolphin to explore the bay. After we returned, we walked across the street for a swim in... More

We stayed here for 8 nights over the Easter period and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As the hotel is relatively small you get the personal touch. Travis and his staff are always on hand should you need any help, not that we needed it as there were no problems. Our room overlooked the waterway at the back of the property... More

Great place to stay. Travis and his staff were great! Rooms very clean and comfortable, pool was perfect and its just a minute walk across the street to the beach. Bikes were available for rent, chairs were available to borrow for the beach. Publix is minutes away. Definitely will stay there again.

We were very lucky to find this place since everything else was over priced or not available. The location is great. Travis is very nice and accommodating. The pool is beautiful. The rooms are well laid out. They have everything you could possibly need. The bad part is the furniture. The couch and chairs looked dirty and worn. The sheet... More

Made a short notice trip to Fort Myers and selected the Dolphin Inn Resort based solely upon reviews posted on Trip Advisor. We had a wonderful stay. Very friendly staff and manager. Room was clean, spacious, and had lots of natural light. We stayed on the 2nd floor, in one of the larger apartments. Location was great, with access to... More

Fast, friendly and fun way to rent bikes that you can tool around on the street or better yet on the beach. The staff was kind with helpful tips and gave me a nice bike to cruise around on for only $10 a day with a lovely basket and working lock. You can't beat it! Traffic toward the beach is... More

My husband and I stayed at the Dolphin Inn for 5 nights in December and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We were greeted with a smile, even with our late arrival. The room was small, but it was very clean and had everything we needed including a kitchen with plates, pots and pans. The canal and dock were right outside... More

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Dolphin Inn for our 7-day vacation to Ft. Myers Beach. We loved being on the less-busy side of the island but still within reach of downtown, a short trolley or car-ride away. The beach is so close, right across the street with direct access and easy to walk to with your... More
