I give this place only four stars because I wasn't aware that the cottages are actually duplexes. BUT, they are very room, totally well appointed, comfy, clean and worth the price. Bridgette was very helpful with reservations and preparations, and helped out with a couple of minor details after we arrived. The beach is an easy walk, as well as... More

These new owners were super nice to us and our dogs. Any issues we had, they solved. The lodging was very roomy and clean. With the many bike trails, we were convenient to everything we needed. We will definitely stay here again.

The new owners are great, and cared about if I had any concerns. The space was perfect for our stay. It was especially nice that we got to bring out furry friend with us, he loved the beach. It was great to have a kitchen to cook lunch, and great to have so many restaurant choices for dinner at night.... More

We just spent 3 nights at the Driftwood Inn & Cottages. Our cottage was very comfortable and pleasant. The new owners went out of their way to make certain that we had everything we needed. We were about a block from the beach with easy access. If you love old Florida then this is an outstanding place to stay at... More

We chose this place after reading the reviews, and comparing the other hotels near by. Seemed like a good value. We had no Wi-Fi, and the beach "a short walk away" was private to the hotel guests. We had to drive a few miles down the road and paid $2 hr to a Public Beach. The street is busy, but... More

Walking past hotels and large condo complexes made me appreciate the Driftwood even more. It's quiet and really well located. A quick walk to a bicycle rental • about one block to the beach • along a lovely bike path. The cottages are comfortable and neat. The screened porch was my go-to place when I wasn't recreating around the island.... More

My wife and I just stayed here last week. Jane is a great hostess. It is a great place for relaxing. It is along a kind of busy street, but it is really quite. We went just inside the off season and were able to get a great rate. Where else can you get a kitchen, bedroom, living room, bathroom... More

Hostess Jane is amazingly accommodating. Cottage was charming . . . just what you would imagine a vintage beach cottage to be. Pet friendly. Very affordable. Sparkling clean and comfortable. Big, too. I could easily live there happily ever after. Nice and quiet. Soooo relaxing. Perfect place to relax. My sister and I had a wonderful weekend in Sanibel with... More

This was the cheapest rental I could find for Sanibel but it was definitely nice! Very clean, charming and large, especially for the price! Only a few minutes walk to the beach. Definitely better than hotels for the same price!

My daughter and I stayed at this Inn for 4 days and it was wonderful. The property is well maintained. Each unit has a charcoal grill. The screened in porch is great to have coffee and watch the birds. It is a short walk to the beach. Jane provides chairs to take to the beach. We never once turned on... More
