We spent 2 nights at the Sanibel Residence Inn. The first was the evening before our early morning departure on the Key West Express and the second was upon our late-evening return 2 days later. Where do I start? We were soooo impressed! The location was great. Right on the entry to Sanibel Island, across the street from an outlet mall, next to a Publix Grocery store and a casual restaurant. Our suite was beautiful - large living room/kitchen and 1 bedroom with 2 queen beds with a balcony overlooking the pool/hot tub/basketball court. We had our bicycles and asked if we could leave them stored while we were in Key West. Of course! We noticed there was a bike path that went right by the hotel. When we asked about eating dinner, the desk made reservations for us at the Lighthouse Restaurant right down the street. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly. The free breakfast buffet was amazing. Lots of tables in a large, sunlit, attractive area. Eggs, potato and sausage mix, waffles, fresh cut fruit, and other things you would normally have, but with extras such as French Vanilla cream for coffee as well as 2 other choices, nuts for waffles, hot chocolate, choice of 2 different syrups, several muffin choices that were not pre-packaged, etc. Several times, someone came to our table to take dirty plates and ask if we wanted more coffee! We noticed dinner was also offered a couple nights each week in the breakfast area. Check-out time was not until 12:00 noon, so we spent a delightful morning lounging by the pool before we left. I can't say enough good things about our stay!
