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

Just returned from 7 wonderful days at the Dolphin Inn in Ft Myers Beach, hopefully we will be back there very soon. Boat dock for your boat right outside your room, just seconds from Estero Bay. beach is across the street, can't get more relaxing than that. Close to everything you need to make your stay enjoyable, yet far enough... More

Hospitable, cosy and affordable. Greeted with a warm welcome from knowledgable staff. 1 min walk to the beautiful beach, 10 mins drive from all bars and restaurants. Free kayak hire and cheap bike hire. There is also a cinema next door. What's not to love?

This worked perfectly for us. It's right across the street from the beach and the guy at the desk when we checked in was EXTREMELY helpful. He pointed out anything we might be interested in, offered the kayaks for free, and was a down-to-earth guy, eager to give us a great experience. This seemed like a very laid back and... More

Laid back sort of place, Don't expect too much in the way of expensive fittings and quality furniture and you will enjoy it. we only stopped one night and didn't pay too much so thought it was fair deal, Beach close by and on site pool and free parking and wifi so all good on that front. they also hire...

Our second visit to The Dolphin was every bit as enjoyable as our first two years ago. Travis and his team work very hard to make your stay a happy one. On arrival, Saturday afternoon, I found I had a flat tyre, no problem, Patrick and Travis sorted it out for me. Although it was the week of the American... More
