Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU. My new husband and I along with approximately 60 wedding guests stayed at the West Wind Inn for our wedding. We had our ceremony on the beach and our reception in a tent on property. I can't say enough good things: the hotel is impeccably clean, the staff is, without exception, friendly and welcoming,...

We just enjoyed 3 nights at the West Wind Inn and we had a great time. This little gem is just off the beaten path on Sanibel Island, which makes for a perfect secluded beach experience. We stayed in room 232, on the recommendation of a very helpful front desk agent named Michael. From making the reservation to check out,... More

We just spent 10 days at the West Wind Inn. While this is an old hotel it has been refurbished. Our room was veryclean and comfortable. We had a lovely koi pond with a waterfall just outside our screened in porch. The staff was very friendly. We will be returning.

We chose this hotel from Google and to confirm a few things I called the hotel two times prior to arrival. Spencer and another gentleman were very helpful with answering all of my questions about the rooms, the beach, shelling and payment options. Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted at check in and it was fast and efficient! They provided... More

We have been coming to the West Wind Inn for the past 20 years and this visit did not disappoint. We were alittle apprehensive in case the new owners had changed too many things but we did not have to worry. The staff were very friendly as always & the rooms excellent. The new lunchtime menu at the bar was... More

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
