This was our first visit to stay on the island and it was a very pleasant surprise. Although the weather was not very cooperative we certainly made the most of it. Upon arrival at The Palm View (which was exactly how the pictures looked) Laurie the manager left a sweet note on the door of the office welcoming us as... More

Close to beach, roomy, charming, clean, quiet. There are bicycles available to use-free, which is a serious plus, because many people don't want to bring their own bicycles. The hotel is only a block and half away from beach, which is a very easy and safe walk. The size and charm of the accommodation was very appealing. Wonderful place to... More

I have been going to Sanibel and staying at the Palm View and Sandpiper Inn for many years. I don't even know where to begin to tell you how lucky I am to have found this place. It is always very comfortable and clean and a good value. They are very accommodating. They have bikes to use if you didn't... More

Really only positives about this place. Room very comfortable, well decorated. Short walk from beach and nearby restaurants, and bikes available to borrow. Also 2 beach chairs and an umbrella to be easily taken and carried on your shoulders. When we arrived the innkeeper was not there but she left a note on the office's window welcoming us. We did...

Our first visit to Sanibel. We enjoyed a very quiet stay at the Palm View in the Caloosa. A short walk to the beach with the beach chairs provided by the resort slung over our shoulders. We had not very cooperative weather--warm but rainy one day and threatening rain another. I appreciated having a living room with comfortable furniture to... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here while visiting family on the island for four days. Most importantly, everything was exceptionally clean and quiet. We were able to walk to the beach (barely a block away) and several restauarants and businesses on the island. We used the free bikes the inn provided (they were very new) to enjoy the warm weather... More

On our 5th stay at Palmview we look forward to our 6th. It was clean, quiet, and pleasant. We used the new bikes and cooked when we wanted. We walked the 3 blocks from our door to the ocean's edge. Our English friends have stayed there 13 times so everyone thinks its something special. We updated to larger quarters which... More

It was what we were looking for. It's an 8 minute walk to the beach which was doable. One of the cleanest places we stayed at. Owners/managers are off site, but in the office during business hours. Bikes are provided complimentary, along with beach chairs.

I had a great experience staying at the Palm View Inn, all of my needs were met with a full, spacious kitchen, beach access, and access to beach chairs, and towels. Bike access allows easy and fun travel to the beach as well as all of Sanibel's shops and restaurants. I plan on visiting Sanibel again, and will certainly stay... More

Loved the location-the staff(yes the dog too)-and the room, the colors in Pirates Cove were my favorite, room sizes are wonderful and large and you have bikes, tables and grill to use. Walk to beach is 5 minutes along with a few places to eat. But still off the beaten path a bit. Prices were good and the ability to... More
