I stayed in the Sandpiper 4 with my 3 teenage children. There was enough space for us to be comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the grill was perfect. The inn provides bikes for you to explore the island. Restaurants, shops, and Pinocchio's Ice Cream were all a short ride away. Although not directly on the beach, the walk... More

A charming island cottage that was filled with all of life's modern day necessities (i.e., 2 TVs w/ full cable, wifi, a full kitchen w/needed cooking & eating supplies, extra towels & soaps, a free laundry room, etc.). Bikes were readily available at all hours for guests who wanted a more leisurely way to tour the island. In the backyard,... More

My husband, daughter (7) and I stayed here. We needed a getaway. This place was amazing. The room was perfect and it was a short walk to the beach. Ron was very accommodating. There was movies that you could borrow free of charge after a long day at the beach we enjoyed Dolphin Tale. The full kitchen was very useful.... More

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

This is the PERFECT place to stay on Sanibel! Walking distance to almost everything, bicycles are included with the room! Very Very clean! If you are wanting a 4 star, PAMPER ME PLEASE, kinda place, this is not the place for you. We were on a girls trip and wanted quaint, clean, within walking distance to beach and restaurants, with...

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
