We really enjoyed ourselves while at the Sanibel Inn. We stayed in a 2 bedroom condo. The room was spacious and fully equipped with everything we needed. Check in was smooth and the staff was professional and polite. We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and the food and service was great. The only reason that I did not... More

This was my 4th visit in as many years to this resort on the island . It continues to be a perfect location for easy beach access. The property is small and has a private, intimate feel. I have stayed in single guest rooms, suites, and the two bedroom units. All were clean and well maintained. Staff is exceptionally friendly... More

We stayed at the Sanibel Inn for two nights in July of 2015. It was really wonderful. We were on the second floor and had a very nice view of the ocean. The balcony was screened in which kept the bugs out nicely. The room had a Keurig coffee maker and small fridge and microwave. Plenty of space for two... More

we returned to the Sanibel Inn this July. the property is very well maintained; loved having access to bikes, paddle boards, kayak's and especially the beach chairs and umbrella's. The staff were friendly, our room was clean and well sized. Only recommendation for improvement - have the Tiki bar open for more time.

When we first arrived our room wasn't ready because our fight was early. The staff was very friendly and told us we could use the pool, bikes, or go to the beach. There was a clean changing room to the side of the office, We used the bikes. Every day the cleaning lady changed the bed linens. The room and... More

We had a top floor gulf view room, overlooked the pool and the gulf which was nice. The people at the desk were very friendly and helpful. Sheets and pillows were nice. I didn't swim in the pool but it did look nice. But... For 300.00 a night with tax and resort fee even with our FL resident discount I... More

We stayed for 2 nights in a one bedroom suite. Our second floor location gave us wonderful views. We really appreciated having the screened porch with comfortable chairs. The room had been updated recently and was well done. Everything was very clean and the bed was comfortable. We used the bikes, paddle boards, and pool. I normally hate a resort... More

I read the reviews on tripadvisor and gave Sanibel Inn a try. The only disappointment was that we drove from the east coast of FL and arrived at noon and the front desk was not so informative. Our room would not be ready for a few hours and they would contact us when it was avaliable. When we were checking... More

Have been travelling to Sanibel now for over 12 years it's a fantastic place and the family love it. Sure, it's got its issues, but you come to expect given what nature throws at you down there - flash storms, dreaded 'no-see-ums' etc. We stayed at the Sanibel Inn a couple of years ago and the accommodation was great.
