My mom and I stayed at the Dolphin Inn for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it! The pool was wonderful. Our room, even though it was tiny, faced the canal and we felt it was in a great location. Bike rentals are cheaper for Inn guests, and we had the option to take the kayaks out if we wanted to.... More

I stayed here two nights with my 4 adult children. Our room (8) had a king bed, full bed, twin bed, and sofa with a pull out bed. The entrance, king bed, bathroom is in a bedroom with a door, the other two beds are off the living room on a closed porch-like structure, divided from the living room with... More

My daughter and I stayed for 2 nights last week and we had am awesome time. Our flight was delayed so I called ahead to let them know we would be arriving much, much later. The owner, Travis, told me there would be a note by the office door waiting for me. It was a personal note typed out by... More

Very casual hotel in a great location. Short walk to the beach, nice pool, right on a canal. We saw a manatee right from the dock. Then we used our paddle board and their free kayaks to paddle around and we saw a dolphin, a hawk eating a fish and a pelican close up. It was incredible! There is a... More

Walk across the street and there's the beach. Rent a bike right at Dolphin Inn and it's only $5 for the day when you stay here. Just in case you don't want to go swimming in the gulf they have a very nice well kept pool. And here's the real sweet thing in the back is a typical wonderful canal... More

the pool is the nicest thing about the motel. we had ants everywhere in our room and the garbage cans were filled to overflowing the entire time we were there. We have stayed several times but we have made other choices for the future

I stayed at the Dolphin Inn this past weekend on Ft. Myers Beach and was very impressed with the cleanliness of the room. There was nothing fancy about my room, but they do have a great pool and a lovely view in the back of the Inn. The room i stayed in was quite small, with a double bed, a... More

This is a casual place, easy walk to the beach, decent pool for a very reasonable price! If you plan to be out of the room most of the day, you should consider this one. Free wifi, clothing line to hang your stuff out to dry, lagoon out back, across the street from the beach! It's an easy walk, street... More

Travis was great. The room was well equipped. Only stayed 2 nights. Looking forward to coming back soon. Plenty of great restaurants close by. Very relaxing place to stay. Stayed in room 3. Literally steps to the pool.

My stay at The Dolphin Inn was perfect last year. I wanted affordable, clean, with a kitchenette. And that is what I got. Very friendly service and helpful recommendations for local entertainment and restaurants. I would recommend this place to a friend.
