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

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.

My wife and wanted to take a long weekend at the beach and we picked the Seaside Inn as the place to stay.

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...
