Our stay started out not so great. We had two rooms booked and asked for poolside. When we arrived they didn't have the poolside listed on our reservation. We were about as far away as you could get. They were able to move one room closer but the other was not. My husband walks with a cane so we needed... More

This was our fist time back to Sanibel Island in years, and we were so pleased to discover the new Holiday Inn Sanibel Resort. It's not your typical Holiday Inn, as the entire facility is based on the resort theme. There's a bar at the pool, voleyball, ping pong, an elaborate walking trail with exotic plants from all over the... More

We decided to go to Sanibel last minute and this hotel was one of the cheapest we could find. We were very impressed with our room location right in front if the pool overlooking the beach on the top. The room had a comfy king size bed, carpet, big fridge and microwave. We liked the granite sinks. The staff was... More

We booked our trip very last minute, and had a hard time finding a place to stay. Reviews of the Holiday Inn seemed good, so we called them directly at the location and spoke with Kamika. She was very friendly and helpful, and got us a great rate on what we hoped would be a great room. I told her... More

Thanks for your kind words. One of my favorite things to hear is it's "not like other Holiday Inns" a compliment to our staff and owners, because we're small, comfortable, and really like to see folks enjoy their time on Sanibel Island. Hope to have you visit again! Danny Adams Director of Sales danny.adams@att.net More

We stayed here over the 4th of July weekend. The Holiday inn is on the far south end of sanibel not to far from the causeway. The Hotel was ok but nothing great. I have now stayed at around 8 hotel in sanibel and I would put this one toward the bottom of those 8. There was nothing bad but... More

This is perfect for a beach getaway. We (2 adults 2 kids) stayed in standard dbl room. It was a last minute getaway for 4th of July-We were very lucky-5 minutes later whole island was sold out even Ft,Myers. They do have -I believe 2 suites probably in building by pool and tiki bar..Standard room is the norm set up... More

I stayed here with my wife and 3 kids. We had a great time! Hotel is right on the beach. Pool was fine. Small, but okay. Rooms were clean and everything worked. Staff was great. If you are looking for a 5 star hotel, this is not it. It is a clean, affordable (by Sanibel standards) hotel in a great... More

We stayed 2 nights and the room was clean and comfortable. The pool was a bit small and did not open until 9:00 a.m. and closed at dusk so that did not give us a lot of time to use it since we were on the beach most of the day and liked to watch the sunset. Our boys were... More

Nothing fancy but nice property on the beach. Service was friendly with a smile - not lacking in any way. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
