We have stayed at the Sunset Beach Inn previously. (Truthfully, we have been going there for years). The staff, the amenities and the ocean were all as wonderful as ever. This time we would like to complement the personalized service and the willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate guests. After staying a week and having family and friends... More

Just returned home after a long weekend on Sanibel Island. We've stayed at Sunset Beach Inn several times & it's always very nice. Clean rooms, right on the beach, nice pool & friendly staff. We'll be back!

We just returned from the Sunset Beach Inn and really enjoyed our visit. The hotel is right on its own private beach and also has a good sized pool. Beach chairs and umbrellas are set up and available at both the beach and the pool. The room was clean and comfortable, with everything you need - high speed wifi, toaster,... More

My husband and i went to Sanibel for a cousin's destination wedding at a hotel just north of this one. The Sunset Inn sits perpendicular to the ocean, so some rooms are closer to a lovely view of it. Check-in was quick, and our "handicapped" room was close to the ocean. It was relaxing to sit on chairs on the... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Location is great, private beach, room very clean, AC didn't work so well but good enough to keep us from complaining. They offer continental breakfast, free bikes, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas. Staff is very friendly, and helpful. Our room was very clean, we thought it was good for... More

Thirty years ago I stayed on West Gulf Drive on Sanibel Island so when the opportunity came to go back I wanted to find a place on West Gulf Drive. We found the Sunset Beach Inn. For us, it was the perfect place to stay, close to the beach, low key helpful friendly staff, clean rooms, free bicycles to explore... More

My husband and I spent 2 weeks traveling by motorcycle up/down the west coast of Florida and the Keys. When we got to this motel we had traveled all day through the torrential down pouring rain from Naples. We were soaked quite literally to the bone. We used our pool towels to keep the floor of our room dry while... More

Rates here are so reasonable for the amenities available. Had a wonderful family vacation with plenty to do for a 12 year old who's favorite pastime is usually his iphone. Don't think he picked up that phone phone twice during our 4 day stay! Would definitely return & recommend!

This was a nice quiet clean hotel. The room was a nice size and the screened in balcony was a huge plus since the bugs were bad when we were there. The beach was nice and quiet, never made it to the pool however there was a family that pretty much had it to themselves. We will book here again... More

We stayed at Sunset Beach Inn for 1 night about 2 weeks ago. Our room was on the 2nd floor and was nice. We didn't have any issues with anything while we were here. We checked in about 9 pm and the lady at the front desk was so sweet and helpful. In the morning they had a continental breakfast... More
