Stayed here for 5 nights. Our room was small but equipped with what we needed. First thing I noticed was that the electrical cord for the air conditioner ran under the door. This allowed a good sized space under the door which let a few lizards in the room. I don't think this set up is totally up to code!... More

The prices were fair but I had no idea what we were in for during our stay. We reserved 2 nights and looking back now wish we hadn't stayed there at all!! Room number... More

I stayed for two nights in a bay room view with a queen size. The room was small but equipped with everything that you need ( from small fridge to toaster, plates and wine opener) the room was all freshly painted in white and the bed extremely comfortable. The view of the bay was very nice and quiet. Direct access... More

My partner and I visited here for one night on our way down to Key West last year. So things may be a little different now. When we first arrived were shown a room that was ok. We soon noticed a strong smell of cannabis. It was coming from the adjoining room occupied by a large family with young children.... More

My wife and I visited Fort Myers Beach for the second time in late May 2014. I stumbled across Dolphin Inn online and was attracted by the very reasonable prices. The rooms had kitchens and out back by the bay was a gas grill available for use. The pool is crystal clear and refreshing. The room was very clean and... More

LOVR LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE. It is an older small beachside motel with effeciecy type rooms. Clean and quiet. The pictures do not do the rooms justice (Rm #5, poolside). It is a very short walk to the beach down a grass path. The pool is very nice and large considering the size of the propery. Even on the weekend... More
