Absolutely loved this place. Booked in for one night on our road trip to the Keys. When we arrived we didn't want to leave. Greeting was welcoming and very friendly. Room was lovely with a pool and sea view. Clean and spacious. And just two minutes from the beach. Resort was just so peaceful, calm, safe and relaxing. The breakfast... More

I needed to check in early and I knew check in wasn't until around 5pm. I arrived at 1:00pm with my two boys, and Tresann was at the reception desk and said she would check to see how soon we could check in. Meanwhile, she gave my boys towels and fresh baked cookies and sent them to the pool to... More

We stayed here for two night as we wanted to stay at the beach and this was highly recommended. Room was not big for two queen size beds but nicely decorated and beds were comfortable. All rooms have view of the pool. Bathroom is rather on the larger size. They provide some utensils, fridge and microwave if you are in... More

So I came out for a quick getaway. Booked a room in one of the main buildings. Things to know: 1) Don't let the slightly shabby exterior fool you. The buildings are painted wood and right on the ocean. The sea air wreaks havoc. Inside the rooms are clean and well maintained. 2) I believe all the poolside rooms have... More

Great short stay hotel on the beach. Rooms dated but clean and comfortable. Bike rentals on premise. Restaurant on premise, but didn't visit. Beach access is great. Nice folks run the place. Amazing shell collecting.

My first trip to Sanibel Island was with my wife who in earlier years had been many times and stayed in trendy condos a bit further down the beach. Seaside is not trendy or flashy in any way. Location is wonderful, away from the busyness of the Periwinkle area. It is but mere steps to the sparsely populated beach where... More

We spent one nite at the Seaside Inn, but wish we were able to spend more time! The room is comfortable with a very well appointed shower/tub combo. Each room has a small fridge, microwave and some plates and utensils. They brought a basket with fruit, drinks and cereal to the room. They have beach lounge chairs and umbrellas set... More

My daughter and son-in-law stayed here for one night. We came to meet them the following day and sit by the pool and enjoy the beach outside of the hotel. Their room was beautiful with a great bathroom and lovely little kitchenette. Plantation blinds, fresh paint, granite countertops, continental breakfast and very clean. It is just steps to the beach.... More

We got one of the Gulf front rooms here last minute for a weekend trip after a conference that ended on a Friday. It was cute, clean, well-equipped and had comfortable beds. Our biggest complaint was the loud air conditioner that came on and off constantly. It stayed nice and cool, but at night, we were hot/cold, hot/cold. The room... More
