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.

Though I live in Southwest Florida and have been to Sanibel many times, this was my 1st stay at Sanibel Inn. My 2 long-time friends had never been to Sanibel before. We all LOVED Sanibel Inn! Very clean and staff made every effort to see that we were happy. Extra towels? Delivered timely and with a big smile. We'd come... More

This was our first visit to Sanibel Island and won't be our last. The hotel was in a great location and included bikes and kayaks for fun. The staff was friendly and tiki bar was perfect for drinks. Happy Hour from 4-6 with bartender Tracy was excellent.

Stayed in room 3316. Very Clean, lower room with a view of the pool. I saw where people on here said they could not enjoy the lenai because of the air conditioner, we shut off our air conditioner and had a very enjoyable evening with a drink in our lenai! The staff was very courteous and followed up to make... More

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
