The owner Travis is a very nice guy and he really takes care of the property and his guests. The rooms aren't super fancy, but they're clean and comfortable and we liked cooking our meals in the kitchen. The heated pool is fabulous and the grounds are well kept with two fat cats hanging around to visit with... The other... More

Just spent 3 days at the dolphin inn. Felt very much at home from the first hour. Owners & staff were very friendly, helpful & efficient. We stayed in # 12 which was freshly painted, new flooring, furniture & kitchen pots & pans. Very clean & comfortable. Really cheap bike rentals and free kayaks to use. Pool was great. Perfect...

Just spent two whole months at this wonderful resort! Fantastic place with white sandy beach just across the road where you can view Dolphins playing in the Gulf whilst pelicans dive for fish. On the bayside of the accommodation, we fed a Manatee fresh water and lettuce! The rooms have just been refurbished to a high standard, and are kept... More

The prior reviews were spot on about this place. While older, the rooms are super clean and the staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. The location is perfect with a trolley stop right outside the door. Miss motels like this that have charm. We'll be back.

I didn't know what to expect from this small hotel across from Ft Myers beach and on the bay. Beautiful sunrises over the bay from my room had me up early every morning. Sunsets over the gulf. Quiet and lovely. I'll return for sure!
