We spent 3 nights in 1 of the 3 A-frame cottages at the Anchor Inn and it was great. Very clean and centrally located. The kitchen was well equipped and with window A/C units in the bedroom, living room and loft, the temperature was easily regulated. The manager (Linda) was extremely helpful in giving us her opinions on restaurants and... More

This was a great mini vaca for my husband & I. This is my second stay @ Anchor Inn. My last visit to Sanibel /Anchor Inn was about 7 years ago, with my son and I remembered how clean and friendly the staff were. This past weekend's trip was no different. Excellent Customer Service. Linda & her staff were so... More

We had the issue of taking our small dog with us for a weekend birthday celebration. We were very cautiously optimistic with our choice. Much to our delight, we were treated like royalty including our little dog. We were greeted by a wonderful manager, Linda who could not do enough for us. The A frame unit we stayed in had... More

Quick getaway that was also pet friendly. Older property, clean and very friendly. Looks like they are doing some remodeling which is a plus. Was not expecting the ritz, just a nice quiet place...we got one of the a-frame cottages which was cute it would of been better if it had just a few extras (hair dryer, iron) and maybe... More

A last minute decision to go to Sanibel led us to the Anchor Inn. All they had was left was a regular room which we found to be small yet spotlessly clean. This motel was built in the 60s and maintains that Florida kitsch charm of that period. While not on the beach, you can drive to it's sister motel... More

My family stayed last weekend in one of the cabins - the staff Lorraine and Pat couldn't have been more helpful. They told us the best restaurants, gave us perfect directions to everything we needed and told us the best times to go everywhere. They really made our trip memorable with their suggestion to take the bikes to go shelling... More

Small family owned place. Clean and quiet. Nice pool, close to everything in Sanibel. Reasonably priced. Kitchen was included in the room, its very handy. Mini fridge, microwave and stovetop. Child friendly.

We booked one of the cottages for our vacation. We were excited about the cottage having a kitchenette as that would allow us to save some money on meals, and we received a very good summer price special through their website. That being said, I had read these reviews previously and expected a warm welcome. However, I had the distinct... More
