Pool, beach, bikes, kayaks, beach chairs, towels and beach umbrellas are all included in your room rate. If you want a beach chair and umbrella, just ask and it will be done at no extra charge. Other places I've read about nickel and dime you to death with extra fees but not Sanibel Inn. We opted for a top floor... More

We were so pleased with our 3 night stay here! We had reserved a regular room but were upgraded to a two bedroom condo at check in and it was perfect for us and our two small children (3 & 5). Everything was so nice and impeccably kept. Full kitchen, large screened in porch where we ate breakfast and enjoyed... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sanibel Inn near the end of July for a short weekend getaway for his birthday. We had never been to Sanibel Island so I did a lot of research to decide where we should stay and found very good reviews for many hotels on the island. Although the Sanibel Inn charged a $12...

Wonderful hotel on the beach in Sanibel. We stayed in an ocean front suite after we were kindly upgraded! Amazing views from our screened balcony of the beach. The suite had everything you could possibly need. We loved cycling around the island on the hotel bikes, included in our cost. Wonderful!

Turned a quick trip into a great 2 days away. The island is beautiful, the resort was fantastic. From check in to driving away - awesome. We arrived early and knowing our rooms wouldn't be ready we stopped in to give our phone number so we could explore the island a little and have them call when the rooms were... More

This was our first trip to Sanibel and we were not disappointed at all. Our room had an excellent view of the gulf and while not extremely fancy or modern, was more than adequate and kept very clean. Access to the beach was tremendous and beach chairs, umbrellas, and towels were all just a request away at no extra charge.... More

We spent the long weekend at the Sanibel Inn. The rooms are small , it smell like humidity and the air conditioning was super noisy, specially at night when you want to rest. Even tough they rooms were renovated, they still seem outdated. At the beach everything closed at 5pm, the beach hut for the beach towels and the beach... More

From the moment my sister and I arrived, the staff at Sanibel Inn was very courteous and genuine. The grounds are just gorgeous with a beautiful, well-kept pool with a large deck. The beach is just steps from the pool. The rooms have a screened-in porch, and ours overlooked the pool and the ocean beyond. There was no extra cost... More

Stayed here in February 2014. Review is long overdue. While this is not a luxury resort, it is the low key atmosphere that ended up being part of the charm. I really loved that they did not nickel and dime you. There are no additional fees for things like beach lounge chairs and umbrellas. There are bicycles available to borrow,... More

Stayed there from 08/19-08/27. Booked as a package through JetBlue Airlines. We could not have been happier with our choice. The location is perfect. Right on the beach and close to the causeway where you enter and exit the island. We received a free upgrade on our room from a one bedroom to a two bedroom, two bathroom unit with... More
