Just a few steps away from the beach, this hotel room reminded me of a cute little beach cottage. The beds were comfortable, the breakfast was very nice and the staff was excellent. Housekeeping did a great job keeping us comfortable and we couldn't ask for a better front desk staff. So many bicycles to choose from - and there... More

Last minute trip and found the room comfortable with a kitchenette. Nice shower, nice pool. Beach beautiful with chairs and umbrellas set up for guests. Free use of bikes which made going to dinner more enjoyable since traffic was congested but bike paths got us anywhere we wanted.At the end of the island which is quieter which we loved.Will definitely...

Was on the island for a beach day, and got way to much sun. Decide to stay, so I checked my lovely trip advisor, and picked this place. What a great decision we made. Easy booking for same day arrival, great price for what I seen. Nice touch on breakfast. They bring you a basket with carbs, protein, juice, coffee,... More

As the title suggests this was another stay at the Seaside Inn since we 'found' it 7 or 8 years ago. It was the same comfortable, friendly place we recall from previous stays, I'm pleased to say. From checkin to checkout it was excellent, the breakfast baskets have been upgraded slightly from our previous stay, but we still augmented it... More

This was our first time on Sanibel and I'm so glad that we chose the Seaside Inn. We had a second floor room overlooking the pool and the Gulf. The location is perfect, the beach at this end is much quieter and it's a lovely walk or bike ride to the Lighthouse. The front desk team, especially Steven, couldn't have... More

We stayed at the Seaside Inn from 4/24-4/28/2015 and loved every minute of it. The hotel is very charming and clean. The gentleman that did our check in was great. Directed us to several restaurants, that were all great choices. There was some painting being done on the property when we were there, however the inn was gracious enough to... More

We loved our stay at the Seaside Inn! The room was about average, nothing fancy, but just perfect for a family of 4. The beds were comfortable for us and the bathroom is "sort of" updated - the vanity looks great. The shower had great water pressure, but there's not a fan in the bathroom? We found that odd for...
