My husband and another couple we were traveling with really enjoyed our short stay at the Sanibel Inn. It was a nice surprise when we checked in that my husband and I were upgraded to a two bedroom unit. We were on the third floor which provided a nice view of the gardens. The units are all individually owned and... More

The Inn provides light airy rooms most with beach views. Well equipped room and good beds. The staff are friendly and helpful. The Inn makes efforts to be eco-friendly with recycling. As a bonus you get the New York Times delivered to your door except Sunday when you can pick it up at the office because it is too big.... More

Clean. Big comfortable beds. Friendly and helpful staff. Right on the beach and so that means wonderful sunsets. A fascinating (and free) hour long talk every morning on beach life by a shell expert (and she was a real expert with a New Zealand PhD). Close to everywhere you need to be close to. The perfect solution to where to... More

Loved the staff,from the front desk to the ticki hut the folks are fantastic. Each room is touted as gulf front, but our room was pool front and far from the gulf. The room had a strong odor of chlorine. I wasn't sure if it was the pool or cleansers. But the view form the beach was amazing and the... More

This resort and the fine white sand beach right in front are perfect for a quick relaxing getaway from the city life. Sanibel Inn is clean, beach accessible, friendly, accommodating and simple. I like the fact that it is not high rise and the well manicured gardens are designed to give you a relaxed real island feel. Check-in was not... More

Cleanliness is most important to me and my room was clean. The balcony is nice. The beds are unbelievably comfortable. I had no issues except for a missing keurig which was promptly brought up when I called. There is a $12 recreation fee for use of kayaks and bikes and that is a steal. I did not use the pool... More
