We have stayed here in the summer low season for many years. It had been called the Colony Resort. The Inn seems more to be more accurate. We like the fact that it is affordable and close to the beach and the east end of the island. Easy walk to shopping and the Lighthouse restaurant. A little disappointed with our... More

My husband and I stayed here the weekend of June 19th, 2015. I have never checked in to a place so quickly and with such a pleasant person. Penny had everything ready and it literally took 1minute to say hello, get our key and parking pass, then up to our room we went!! I have to admit I was a... More

It is very close to the beach, just a short walk down the boardwalk. The rooms have a bedroom, bathroom, dinning area, nice size Kitchen,... More

We stayed in unit C-6 for a weekend getaway. It was perfect for us. Large bedroom, a small kitchen and bath, living room with pull out couch and a covered patio. Our unit had been renovated and was gorgeous. The owners also had an umbrella and beach chairs that we could use. (We didn't. We had brought our own.) We... More

Very impressed! Nice, quiet, clean. Only 2 things to warn, if you ride a motorcycle be warned its a gravel lot, no solid parking and no in room hair dryer. Everything else was perfect. Newly remodeled, short path walk to the beach, friendly staff.

Mature couple visits Sanibel for 3 days. Colony inn condo unit was great. Clean ,quiet and great location near the beach not far from the light house. Fully furnished kitchen and comfortable living/dining room. Only downside is the two beds are only full size. I was hoping for queen size. Would return to Colony Inn.

We had a comfortable stay in unit c44 which was clean, tidy, well furnished, pleasantly decorated, and equipped w nearly everything we needed. We appreciated: the dependable wifi, ease of parking, proximity of the short walk to the beach, and the comfortable shaded screened porch with its ceramic tile floor outdoor ceiling fan. If there were negatives they were minor... More
