Sanibel Inn a quaint little gem we found on our trip. The staff was very accomodating and friendly, the rooms clean, quiet and very efficient for a few stays stay. The grounds well groomed. My disappointment came when I walked in either direction on the beach after check in. " Red tide", dead fish lying all over the beach. Along... More

Stayed Jan 28th-Feb 1st 2016. Overall a great experience. Check in was welcoming and attentive in the middle of a down pour. The property had some flooding due to the two day rain storm, we maneuvered around the puddles to get to the pool and the beach. The room ( 2 bdr 2 bath ) was spacious, with nice furniture......

We stayed at Sanibel Inn 1/23 - 1/30/16 in a two bedroom condo this time because we brought our boys along. Our condo was very nice, had everything we needed and we had a great view of the gulf. I loved sitting in the big screened in lanai drinking my coffee every morning. The staff at Sanibel Inn are very... More

Nick (Front Desk Sanibel Inn) saved the day when my daughter and I needed to find another place to stay for our vacation when we discovered the original booking at another site turned out to be HORRIBLE! We quickly looked on-line and saw that the Sanibel Inn had a couple rooms available for the time we were on Sanibel. We... More

The Inn could be so much better if someone took charge. There are 3 areas I will focus on. First - There is disconnect between what you pay and what you get. The Inn is dated in a variety of ways. The rooms, the grounds, and the menu all need work. The rooms have old bathrooms and AC systems. The... More

We stayed at the Sanibel Inn recently and were very pleased with this location. We rented the two bedroom condo which was perfect for two couples. There was a full kitchen which was perfect for our needs, breakfast and lunch and a lovely screened porch to see the water. The maid service was a real plus and they came in... More

We head to Sanibel Inn a few times each year. We never tire of it. The condos are wonderful with a view of the water, and you know you are at the beach. They are big enough for the whole family to come down. Amenities include the pool, kayaks, beach chairs, and bicycles. We usually spend much time in the... More

We changed our hotel to Sanibel Inn last minute and we enjoyed every second. Lot of sport equipment to be rent, great location on a beach, good bar, nice BBQ food and very nice staff. Only thing that I recommend is watch the locals for bars and restaurants concerning food and when they wear long shirts and pants, as it... More
