Location could not have been better... right on a gorgeous beach. Room initially clean but housekeeping lacking in keeping the bathroom clean. We had requested a 1st floor room as there is not an elevator to the second floor. I had called a week ahead to confirm (had originally booked 3 months ahead) and told then that yes, we had... More

A last minute booking for Labor Day weekend at a great rate, most other places were gouging the prices. We booked the only available room, a double occupancy room, which accommodated our family of four comfortably for two nights. The room was well equipped with coffee maker, microwave, mini-refrigerator and most important it was very clean and comfortable. The entire... More

Sanibel is a laid back relaxing place. West Wind Inn captures the culture of a beachfront atmosphere with quietness and relaxation. Great staff, super pool and pool bar. Restaurant open breakfast and lunch with weekend dinner menu. Check it out. Been staying there many years. Ed C

Wow - Great customer service, very nice and helpful staff. I reserved the room late for a holiday and thought the room would not be a very good one. Boy was I wrong. Great room literally just steps from the beach. The view was beautiful. The pool was clean, the rum runners at the pool bar were great and the... More

We'd never been to Sanibel and picked this based on price and location. For the price we got we didn't expect much, but what a surprise. The location was right on the beach with a nice beach side pool. Our room was poolside and still had a beach view. The room was not fancy but you really couldn't ask for... More

I was in august with my family 2 adults and 2 children. It was cery very veri hot and the Air conditioning was noisy, above all during the night. The mattress was covered by a plastic and bed bugs were everywere in the rooms. Dirty, and the water in the bathroom stank! Too bad, because it is a nice place.

The price is too high for the quality of the rooms. The beds and pillows very bad, the air conditioning noisy at night and we had to turn it off, the bathroom very small. The only positive note is the beautiful place and contact with nature. Advice to bring insect repellent! We had the full body of bites (small and... More

Was very pleasant - but the front desk personnel was not very friendly - and made me feel badly about asking a question. Other than that it was a very pleasant lovely hotel GREAT location a bit older but very clean. We had dinner at a great resataurant named "The Mad Hatter" a little pricey but worth it.

We have stayed here throughout the years because it is on the beach and reasonable. This year was not a good year! Rooms never seem to change. Thin bed spread and very broken down mattress. Too many obnoxious smokers at the pool and on balconies. Until the smoking policy changes here I will not be returning. Loud people by the... More
