As my husband and I pulled into the parking lot at around 9:45pm hoping we might be able to secure a room for the night on a last minute whim, a gentleman was coming out of the registration office with a large garbage back. We hadn't even made it completely out of our vehicle before the man was back in... More

We left on an icy highway to drive for over 3 hours, seeing overturned semis, and cars off the Interstate. The airport had been shut down for the first 2 days of our trip. What a unpleasant beginning to our vacation! Sanibel was our last stop on a three part trip. Everything had been booked in advance of our Indiana... More

We just stayed at the Seaside Inn for our 33rd anniversary. Staff is very friendly including . Rooms are neat, clean and kept up to date. Bedspreads are changed with every new guest. That does not happen at every hotel. Pool was big and very clean. Wonderful continental breakfast delivered every evening at your door for the following morning so... More

My family and I stayed here for an extended weekend. I couldn't have been more relaxed and content. All staff was exceptional, went above and beyond for each and every guest from what I observed. Complimentary rides, beautiful-deep- pool, on the beaches with FREE lounges and umbrellas! And if that wasn't enough, they leave a basket of treats each day.... More

We just got back from our second visit to the Seaside Inn and loved it once again. This quaint little spot is full of amenities that make it a wonderful value, and the location is perfect. What really puts it over the top is the customer service by innkeeper Tresann. She's been there for both our visits (one last year... More

Seaside Inn is a cute little hotel with the charm of old Florida. A bit dated but very clean with comfortable new bedding. A small kitchen with microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker. Directly on the ocean with spectacular sunsets. Would recommend but do not expect a 4 star. Would rate this property a 3 star. Complimentary bikes and Danish for... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was on the 2nd floor & had views of the pool & ocean. The room was spacious, very Pottery-Barn type chic, and had a nice modern bathroom with a HUGE shower. Resort is right on the beach that is perfect for shelling. The staff was super friendly and attentive. Can't wait to... More

My first time in sanibel. The hotel is a bit dated but very clean and has everything you need. My problem was that the renters upstairs from me were making lots of noise at night and I just wanted to chill and go to sleep. It wasn't happening I felt bad but didn't want to go and complain. This am... More
