My husband and I spent a week on Sanibel and loved this quaint little Inn. It was perfect for the two of us and the service was awesome. The Manager Ron is great. Both he and the Inn exceeded our expectations. The price was great. Much less than a one of the pricey (and small) hotel rooms. We had free... More

I could write a ton but others have said it well. This is a wonderful spot on a wonderful island. We stayed three nights and wished for more. We were in unit three upstairs. Would recommend unit four for a bit more privacy on the upper deck. Place was spotless inside and out. The manger, Ron, is doing a great... More

Our first trip to Sanibel and we absolutely loved this place. First of all, it was decorated very cute, was clean, quiet and within walking distance to a beautiful beach. Ron, the manager, was very friendly and helpful. Having access to bicycles was also a wonderful plus since there are paved bicycle roads everywhere. We enjoyed our stay immensely and... More

First time to Sanibel and had a very positive experience. The Sanibel Inn is a little home away from home. The owner/proprietor, Ron, couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Great guy. The units were clean and had all the basic amenities. No satellite TV, but good wifi connection. Good selection of DVD's in the main office to borrow free... More

It's a clean, no frills place in a fabulous location.The units are well supplied with all you need to have meals in if you want and the pots pans and dishes are in superb shape. It's a perfect place to kick... More

I enjoyed shelling so much last year that I came back by myself this year, and stayed 5 nights. It's been a great stay - totally comfortable, with everything I need - full kitchen, two bathrooms, living room and sleeping area. Both the living room and sleeping area have flat screen tvs, and everything is in great shape. Ron the... More

Enjoyed 4 relaxing days at the Sandpiper. We had spent several weeks visiting the Everglades & the Keys and decided to wind up our trip on Sanibel. We are so happy we did, and that we chose the Sandpiper! We stayed in #3 and enjoyed sitting on the porch. The apartment was spotless and fully stocked w/everything for cooking or... More

WE stayed 5 days at the Sandpiper Inn and had a great time. The apartment is fully equipped, lacking nothing. Beach chairs, umbrellas, bicycles, a great veranda and and and. Perfect for exploring the island and everything else! In addition, a super nice service, everything was taken care of. Thanks to Ron !!! We would always come back!

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
