This was our 2nd time staying at the Island Inn in Sanibel. On this visit we brought family n friends. Everything was wonderful as expected. The staff is always helpful, the rooms are always clean and comfortable, the restaurant serves delicious food, and the beach is awesome. This has become our favorite place to stay in Sanibel.

We recently spent 4 days at the Island Inn and stayed in Matthew's Cottage. We loved the cottage, all updates, comfortable, quiet, awesome. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, especially in the restaurant for breakfast. Loved the coffee. We really enjoyed our dinner on Mother's Day, as well as the entertainment. However, for the cost of the stay, beach... More

My husband and I stayed at the Island Inn while on vacation. We were accompanied by my brother and his wife. We were greeted with a sincere and heart felt welcome upon check in. The Inn is located right on the beach and has a great view! There is a large room that you can watch TV in, play games/puzzles... More

We stayed at theIsland Inn for my partners birthday and had a fantastic time. The hotel was clean, great location and helpful staff. We loved everything about our stay and was already planning our next trip before we left. Hoping to make it back again this August. We stayed at the Kimball Lodge and absolutely loved it!

My husband and I stayed at the Island Inn for 3 nights this past February. We loved the peacefulness/relaxing atmosphere of the Inn, the location, our accommodations, and the fact that it was right on the water. We walked the beach, gathering shells, every day - glorious! There is a wonderful on site restaurant - Traditions - that added to... More

Loved our stay. We visited Sept 2014 in celebration of our 25th wedding anniversary. Our room was clean, bright, airy. Love the kitchen, full size refridge. Bathroom was nice, small bathtub but ok. I would have prefer a large stand up shower which would have been ideal. Our room as most are just mere steps from the Gulf. Loved the... More

This was our second visit to the Island Inn and was equally as good as our first. We spent 5 nights in mid May in the Inn as we did last year. The Gulfview room that we stayed in was large and very comfortable with all the amenities you could want. It also had a view from the balcony that... More

We live in South Fort Myers and wanted a perfect weekend getaway to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary. We chose Island Inn in Sanibel. When we arrived to our suite, we were greeted with two elephants kissing made out of towels with champagne glasses on the bed with a lovely note from the Inn. In the fridge was a bottle... More

We had never been to Sanibel Island before and were very happy with our choice of the Island Inn. It was centrally located and we were right on the beach. It was very clean, which is a requirement for us. Our lanai was looked out right on the beach which was a short walk from our building. We were able... More
