Our first time at the Sandpiper Inn and it was a wonderful surprise! The apartment inside was clean, well stocked with kitchen supplies, nice towels and beach towels, plus beach chairs and umbrella. The bikes were in good condition and Ron, the manager was very informative about how to navigate Sanibel island and the surrounding areas of Ft. Myers/Ft. Myers... More

I decided to take a last min trip solo. As a single female from NYC I didn't know what to expect I just knew I wanted something safe, peaceful and budget friendly. This place met all of my preferences. The staff was absolutely amazing. They accommodated my very late check in and gave me a clean, spacious room that definitely... More

This was a great, relatively last minute, find for a wedding on the island. The inn keeper was very nice. It is a very low key and relaxed place. Spacious room with two double beds and nice living area with small kitchen. Nice size closet. Porch with two chairs. A little dusty but clean enough. Best part was the bikes.... More

Great place to stay, lovely Floridian atmosphere and very helpful owners. Very clean. Provision of good beach chairs and umbrella was a bonus. Not the newest of apartments but nicer atmosphere and homely feel. Would definitely stay here again.

Pros: The layout in Unit 2 (ground floor, in the back) provided the equivalent of two bedrooms (one with a somewhat lumpy sofa bed rendered OK with a blanket spread over the lumps), each with a bath and its own outside door. The lighting was bright enough for reading. The inn was on a quiet street with a bike path,... More

My first time to Sanibel and the Sandpiper Inn could not have been more perfect!! Islandy décor with the feel, as someone mentioned "1950's charm", that is it! Clean, private and quiet!! Everything we needed for our stay was made available! New release movie was even offered at no cost. Bicycles, beach gear, coffee maker, dishes, shell washing area, hammock,... More

The Sandpiper Inn was a great choice. We stayed on the upper floor, having a little veranda with chairs. The interior was very modern and beachy. All in all exceptionally clean and bright. Big kitchen and fridge, tv and every room is equipped with full beach utensils (chairs, umbrella, towels). We rode with bicycles to the beach, which took us... More

I was searching the internet and calling around for prices and locations and Sandpiper Inn turned out to be a very sweet, very small, kind of a 1950's charming island inn. It was very quiet and private, and had everything we needed for a reasonably priced trip to the island. Complete kitchen, with full-size refrigerator, microwave, coffeemaker, dishes, silverware, so... More

Great little efficiency apartments, very clean. Lovely front porch area (had cocktails with the neighbors) and backyard area with hammock. Loved the outdoor sink for rinsing shells and suits. PERFECT location for a short bike ride to the beach or town, bikes provided by the Inn! I will definitely go back again, great place for a family reunion or group... More

I can only echo other positive reviews. Clean and comfortable. The kitchen had all we needed for simple cooking. Free cruiser bikes were a great amenity. Free use of washer/dryer came in handy. Short walk to the south side beach (shelling at low tide).
