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

Two friends and I went here for spring break looking for a relaxing hotel near the beach for a good price. It was perfect. They let us check in early and check out late, rent bikes from the hotel, and bring towels and toys to the beach. Shuffleboard, horseshoes, warm pool, tetherball, and plenty of grills and picnic tables. Nice... More

My girlfriend and I were on a two week auto trip all around Florida. We stopped in Sanibel Island, loved it, and wanted to stay. After checking several lodging options, we were quite disappointed at the common price points. Being budget travelers, we were resigned to leaving the island in search of cheaper lodging. On a last ditch whim, we... More

We really enjoyed our 2 day stay here. It was not 5 star ,so don't compare it to that but we liked it a lot , large airy rooms and comfortable beds, peaceful & quiet location right by bike path with an easy ride to lighthouse and beach. Bikes were on site to use, very convenient.

Great for the facilities and kitchen, great for families. There is bad internet connection in the cottages but overall the hotel gives off a wonderful vibe. I love that they have a shuffle board in front.

Our family stayed for 8 days. The kids loved the pool; the staff was friendly; there are laundry facilities on site which we needed with 2 two year olds. This is our second time staying and we have picked this Inn also because it is pet friendly. Right on Periwinkle and very close to the bike rentals. We will visit... More
