I chose this hotel as a result of reading fellow Trip Adviser reviews. What can I say that has not already been said. Location is perfect. Staff are friendly, courteous and very helpful. Continental breakfast, contrary to some reviews,was just fine. There was fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs. and pastrys that tasted a lot better than they looked. Toast with... More

The Island Inn, beautiful hotel, excellent beach, awesome pool, good breakfast, convenient laundry, helpful staff, beautiful room, clean comfortable, recently and wonderfully renovated! (Kimball Lodge room 273) perfect view. Listened to the waves all night long. 1.5 miles from town, rent a bike at the front desk and get all your shopping done without ever getting back in your car.... More

We spent two nights with our grown daughters at the Island Inn. We had a Gulfview studio in Starky Lodge on the 2nd floor. Great accomadations for 4. Such a short walk to the beach and pool. The grounds are very well kept. We rented bikes from the office and biked all around the island. We will stay here again... More

My husband and I spent our anniversary there and the staff really went out of their way to help us celebrate. What wonderful memories we will have forever. This isn't the first time we've gone there to celebrate and each time a special memory is created. We will go back year after year. Thank you to all the staff at... More

Sanibel Island is overall beautiful, quiet, relaxed and maintains the "old" Florida atmosphere as does the Island Inn. The Inn is a perfect choice for a romantic getaway or a stay with the kids. You will enjoy every minute of your time there. The Gulf, beach , sunrise and sunset simply awesome.

Just got back from 8 days in Sanibel at the Island Inn. Such a great beach location we couldn't tear ourselves away too much to go and shell! Morning restaurant ladies were so welcoming and remembered I like English breakfast tea! Front desk staff was always friendly. Very nicely appointed rooms, and housekeeping was ideal. Wish there was a way... More

The people were great - very friendly, very helpful, the room was clean and comfortable, the continental breakfast had a lot of pastries that were very fresh. Ana from housekeeping put towel art on the bed (an elephant one day and a... More

Clean and recently updated rooms in the Kimbal Lodge. Bright, breezy welcoming rooms. Quiet spectacular water view from king size bed suites. Looking forward to our next stay. Very reasonable in the off season, although very hot the beginning of Sept.

My husband and I stayed at the Island Inn for a quiet and relaxing weekend on the beach and we couldn't have picked a better location. The Inn is beautiful, quiet, clean and the staff is very friendly. The beach in front of the hotel is beautiful with the most breathtaking sunsets! Offers great amenities like bikes, kayaks, paddle boards... More

We stayed in a room on the second floor which walked right out on the large sun deck at the end of the hall. They do an amazing job with little space, everything is new, modern and the room was very quiet. Id like to try the cottage next time. Our room had a full kitchenette, king bed, 2 flat... More
