At Anchor Inn you stay in the heart of the Island, and are directed to their exclusive private beach about 6 miles away. The staff is the best on the Island. The value you get from Anchor Inn is almost too good to be true. We were able to stay longer because the rates were so affordable. Plus we were... More

The cottage we stayed in was absolutely wonderful - spacious and conveniently located. We'll definitely be back! Once inside the cottage you feel like you're away from civilization, but you have all the comforts of home.

Being a FL resident, we sometimes forget to take advantage of the wonderful places around us. A stay-cation was in order and the destination was to be Sanibel. It was my very first time on this beautiful island and I hope it won't be my last. Cottage 21 at Anchor was a fine home away from home. Clean, cozy, and... More

Found this Inn quite by accident as a last minute decision. We went thru Booking.com, that cost us an extra $30 we meet the inn keepers Lorraine and Patrick who punted out that going to www.sanibel-motels.com would give us the best rate for their motel or any motel on the island. We stayed in room 15 really cute and comfortable... More

Having a picky husband I was not so sure about this hotel. Little did I know it was the best spot in town. When you first see it you will notice the tropical colors that goes with the islands theme. The people who work there are friendly and best part you cab have pets. Couldn't hear other dogs barking. Very... More

We enjoyed our cabin that stayed cool & relaxing. We got great suggestions from Lori the housekeeper on good beaches for shells. Full kitchen & BBQ, quiet relaxing pool. Located a few minutes from restaurants & light house, we would defiantly stay again!

Anchor Inn & Cottages is such a relaxing place to stay. They have several room sizes to choose from, including the historic A-frame cottages. We chose a two-room efficiency, which was quite roomy for our family of 4. We enjoyed a small living area, a kitchen, 2 bathrooms, and a master bedroom. The master bath was a bit tight, but... More
