This place was definitely a wonderful surprise! The owner, Travis was so accommodating and kind, the property is very nice and getting nicer all the time with the improvements being made by the awesome staff. (We stayed two separate occasions in November, both stays were amazing and we saw the hardworking staff making updates and improvements constantly!) The location and... More

We stayed at the Dolphin Inn for a week in March 2012, and again for another week in March 2014. The owners have done a lot in their continuing efforts to maintain and improve this Inn. It is a clean, friendly, convenient place to stay, with canal access on the premises and a beautiful beach just across the road. The... More

I know most picky people will not like this place..It is not a five star hotel. But we loved it..The rooms are clean and nice and the owners were just great people..Loved having a room on the canal able to sit by the water and have breakfast in the mornings was awesome..I enjoyed our stay there and would be more...

Did not stay at the Inn but we did rent two beach bikes for the entire month of December (2013). We had made the arrangements (pre-booked by email) with Travis who was a pleasure to deal with. He provided us with brand new bikes (since we were renting for the whole month) and even delivered them to our rental on... More

We stayed in two units this week- a 1 bedroom apt. and a lower level unit- both bayside. The upper level 1 bdrm. offers nice views and more space, full kitchen and a pass through island breeze. The regular guests at this hotel are friendly and inviting- there was a fish fry and gift swap on Valentines Day- a pot... More

I chose this hotel because I wanted some place away from the center of the city, not as expensive as the beach hotels, yet close to the beach access and this hotel served the purposes perfectly. The hotel is located on the main road in FM Beach yet it was far enough from the center of town so it was... More

This was our 2nd visit to Dolphin Inn and we enjoyed it as much as last time. The Dolphin is on Estero Boulevard, the main (mostly one lane each way) road through Fort Myers Beach and Estero Island area. Accommodation is self catering, with 3 room options. The Dolphin is situated at the top of a waterway, with its own... More

A bit late, but I stayed here in October with 5 other biker-buddies. If you want a comfortable,clean, roomy place, at a reasonable price, to stay on Ft Myers Beach.... away from the hustle and bustle of overly-congested beach traffic, this is the place. Friendly staff and management. Not directly on the beach, but close enough for me.

My wife and I spent three days in Fort Myers Beach to visit relatives and attend the Sand Sculpture Event. We chose this place based on reviews and location (within walking distance from the event). We were not disappointed. We were right across the road from the beach access. The beach area in this location is the widest beach along... More

I have been 16 days in Florida, visiting many places and changing several hotels. This was by far the worst one, I cannot understand the good reviews. Maybe I got the worst room. We asked to change room but they told us it was fully booked. However, the shield vacancy was still there. The room was dirty, the bed old... More
