We enjoyed our trip here very much. The inn is quaint and older, but very clean. We did not enjoy the continental breakfast, but the partial kitchen was nice to have. The free bikes were fun! The beach location is great.

This place is a favorite to stay, We have been coming off & on for 30+ years. It was built in the 60's and is wood frame which needs constant attention, they do a pretty good job at that. There are "motel" rooms {2 story section overlooking pool), Beachfront rooms (2 story overlooking beach) and Cabins which overlook the pool.... More

We all loved it and the location was excellent and the cottages were clean, roomy and very comfortable.The food baskets delivered were perfect! Unfortunately, I arrived with a broken... More

This is a great place to stay in Sannibel. Tresann and the older gentelman that work at the front desk are great and very helpful in helping you find great local places to visit. The cleaning staff is also very friendly and accommodating.

Our family of five stayed at Seaside Inn this summer for the first time. The cottage itself was small but fine for us. If you are used to business travelling in pristine hotels, keep in mind that this is a place that people are cooking in, living in and dragging sand and shells in with them. The cottage that we...

We love the Seaside Inn for the location, our gulf front room, and the great staff at the front desk. We have been coming for a few years and never had a bad experience. I do hate to say this, but the place needs a major update. The sound on the TV died three times, and the eggs in the... More
