Stayed here with husband in mid-May 2012. I'd never been to Sanibel/Captiva Island, so it was kind of a shock when I searched for 'good deals.' West Wind Inn is not just a good deal, it's a great deal. From check-in to check-out, the experience was a 'breeze.' We got there pretty late in the night but the front desk clerk was very cheery. She upgraded us to a pool side suite. We were delighted, but when we got to the room we found the A/C was not working. (we're from Alaska, so that was pretty important.) My husband went back down to the front office, explained the situation, and requested another room. We didn't expect anything more, but the clerk switched us to an oceanfront suite. We couldn't believe it. That made a huge difference. The grounds were clean, the staff very friendly.
The restaurant that served the area was a little out of place - the entrance was 'sea-worthy' but the restaurant itself seemed like it belonged in an upscale city. I guess that would be okay for some people but for me, it didn't feel quite right for the place.
All in all, the location, staff and other amenities were terrific. Will recommend and be back again.
