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

I stayed at Sanibel Inn with my mom and sister for my Aunt's 90th birthday celebration. We had about 20 people in our group. It is a beautiful setting, the rooms are nice, we had a screened in porch, the pool is nice, the restaurant did a fantastic job for our celebration, the tiki bar serves lunch and has happy... 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

My husband and I had never been to Sanibel and I had done quite a bit of research before booking this hotel. We were greeted by Abrahan. Very nice fella :) When we got to our room we were greeted with a bottle of wine and a nice Happy Anniversary card. What a nice start to wonderful weekend at this... More

As soon as we pulled into the parking lot for check-in, we knew that we had picked the perfect place to stay for our vacation in Sanibel. The grounds are beautiful, with a wonderful tropical vibe. We were warmly welcomed at guest registration and given information about the Sanibel Inn. Our room was not ready upon our arrival, but we... More

The staff was very nice. But it is a very basic, no frills motel. The room was clean, but nothing special. I love the bikes included in the resort fee. But the rooms are a bit musty and dark. Ask for a second floor room close to beach, and make sure it's "bright"! The bathrooms are clean and updated. There... More

I surprised my husband with a trip to Sanibel Island for his birthday and even though getting there was quite the chore (missed flights, delayed flights, flat tires on planes) when we finally got there it was so worth it. The staff at Sanilbel Inn had upgraded our room to a Gulf Front room and even left a bottle of... More

We stayed here one night while on a road trip. Clean as a pin with a great location and view, an even better bed and linens. The room was tastefully decorated and larger than many. The folks were pleasant and helpful. We had a great stay and will be back.

We enjoyed a very pleasant 3 nights at Sanibel Inn. We had a bedroom overlooking the ocean (although the mozzie screen obscures the view a little bit) - it was very spacious and comfortable, with good housekeeping service. Breakfasts were pretty OK in the main restaurant, but it was the lunches in the Tiki bar that we enjoyed the most.... More

Stayed at Sanibel Inn as part of a package. Very happy with room, accommodations, staff, service and location. Dollar for dollar one of the best travel values we've had in years. Thanks to everyone, especially Nixon who worked very hard in the heat to make sure all the guests had comfortable chairs and umbrellas on the beach every day.
