The anchor inn was a clean and quaint. Linda was very knowledgeable of amenities of the area . Cottages were very homey. The only thing we needed was food and our suitcases. Cottages were very comfortable , but I think some of the bedding could be replaced. Recommend this place Highly. Chattypatty, Vinnie , Phil

Toilet had urine spots on lid, I have to clean the bathroom my self, shower with fungus. Bedroom was clean. Really dog friendly!! They give you sheets and towels for you dog!!! Nice staff. Located on a Main Street but you can enjoy the private beach of their partner hotel few minutes away. Nice Bbq area.

We decided to stay while we were just driving through Sanibel Island. I quickly searched and found Anchor Inn since we needed a place that would allow our little dog. When I called, Lynda was very friendly. When we got to the check-in, Lynda said she had already had someone bring a dog basket to the room for us. When... More

Our experience here was absolutely perfect from start to finish. As someone who works within the hospitality industry, I sincerely appreciate attention to detail. The owner Linda greeted us with a warm smile and walked us to our room upon arrival. We brought our dachshund with us on our trip. Linda prepared her a basket with her very own towel,... More

I can't say enough good things about this quaint little cottage motel. The staff is beyond nice. The location is prime. They have bike rentals available for a reasonable price, plus they lend out beach towels, umbrellas and chairs at no cost. The room was clean besides little sugar ants in the bathroom but those are to be expected in... More

I was delighted with the amiability of the staff, cuteness and cleanness of this place. Very pet friendly, they have a partnership with a motel by the beach, in order to give you free parking and easy access to Bowman Beach. I'm coming back soon and I am recommending it to all my family and friends.

Quaint , clean and Super friendly service We found this room through the visitor centre's list of vacancies provided after hours to visitors. A shout out to the Sanibel Visitor Center. What a great help to have this list for after hours AND a courtesy house phone for travellers to check the vacancies. First the price was reasonable do we... More

My boyfriend and I try to Sanibel frequently and were taking our dog with us for the first time. He's a big bully mix but we had no problems at the Inn at all. Linda and Nicole were very nice and gave us directions to the perfect secluded beach where our big pup was able to run around without disturbing... More
