Our first time to Sanibel we booked Anchor Inn for 4 nights and thought we were getting a great deal at $300 per night. Turned out to be well maintained but very old cement block straight from the 50's. It is a good ways to the beaches so plan on uaing your car or be a good biker. Traffic can... More

Stayed a night at the Anchor Inn and had wonderful customer service. The bike rentals are convenient and $15.00/day. We were in close proximity from restaurants and nearby beaches, would definitely go back!

Good location of the hotel. We got a nice room with a big bedroom and two bathrooms. Kitchen is equipped with a fridge, microwave, toaster and coffeemaker. It is really nice to eat breakfast next to the pond. Also, make sure you explore Sanibel by bike, it is amazing! The hotel offers bike rental for about 15 dollars per bike,... More

We selected this place a central and near the bike rental / restaurants. From this perspective the hotel met our needs. Only comment would be being on the main road even well set back it was amazing how we noted the traffic noise. A quieter spot or thicker walls would have led to more sleep

I was on Sanibel Island for a writer's conference, Thursday to Sunday morning. Sessions started at 07:30 and ran 'til after 19:00 hours. The Anchor Inn was great for me because it was close to the conference, clean, comfortable and the staff was friendly and helpful. There were two great restaurants; a seafood place right next door and an Italian... More

The room is basic but clean and includes a small table with 2 chairs, TV, a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and coffee. Be sure to bring your own toiletries and hair dryer as the only thing provided is bar soap. Due to the dog friendly environment, housekeepers do not enter the room. There is a towel exchange program in place.... More

Nothing "spectacular" but was very clean and on the main strip of Sanibel. We enjoyed our stay and would consider going back for a night or two. The employees there were friendly, helpful and answered any and questions about the area.
