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

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
