We've been coming to Sanibel Island for years and have stayed at the Island Inn on several occasions. The hotel had been updated and is extremely clean and the grounds are well maintained. Both me and my daughter and her husband got rooms on the first floor giving us direct walkout to the beach from our screened in patios. The... More

We would go back again. The room was located on the second floor with a large shower. The bed was as comfortable as you can get. What put us over the top was how clean and tidy they kept the place. The cleaning service was outstanding, each day we would find a new towel animal that was made up and... More

This place is wonderful! I was amazed at how hospitable the housekeeping staff was and the cleanliness of the room. The room is designed with the traveler in mind. The enclosed balcony was a joy to sit on when the bugs began biting my legs. The views are amazing.

My mother and I started this tradition back in the 80's. Now for the second year in a row, my daughter and I have chosen this wonderful place for our getaway. We loved every minute of our stay. The accommodations are wonderful, the breakfast staff, the BEST!! We will definitely be back, I hope for a longer stay next time!!!😀

Beautiful condo with sea view. Spacious kitchen, large bath, new decor. W/D, beach towels and an on site restaurant bar for an evening meal if you aren't cooking in. Roof deck to watch the sunset. You could sleep four but two would be more comfortable.

Two weeks ago our daughter got married at Island Inn and Traditions and the experience could not have been better. The hotel staff went out of their way to treat all our friends like family and ensure everyone was looked after. Chris and his staff never missed a beat and all loved the newly renovated rooms. The folks at Island... More

Staff was very helpful and friendly. Our group of 6 stayed two nights in the Starky Lodge and it was an excellent experience! Everything was very clean; kitchenette had just enough cookware for our needs and was roomy enough for sleeping ... we didn't need excess space for 'living'. Enjoyed the screened porch immensely. Honorable Mention: The cinnamon scones on... More

I've stayed at several "beach hotels and inn's" I think this one is my overall favorite. Steps to the beach is marketing talk for a 10 minute walk schlepping your stuff. Our room was 121 steps (no, I didn't really count) to the WATER. Use of chairs is complimentary and they charge a very token price to rent an umbrella.... More

This place is amazing and offers a variety of rooms in different buildings and even has cottages. There is a restaurant on property so, you don't have to leave if you'd rather just stay there. The beach is nice and plenty of shells to look through. It was relaxing and quiet even with families. There is a pool and other... More
