This hotel is awesome. Great sized pool, Apartment rooms are awesome, and the staff is fantastic. The only complaint is the shower pressure :( But, it was manageable. If we ever go back to Ft Myers, we will definitely stay here again!!!

Clean room, nice pool area, quiet and comfortable. Loved my stay here. I was late getting there and the front desk was closed. I found a personalized note welcoming me to their establishment along with contact info if there was a problem. The proprietors went the extra step to ensure I was taken care of. Very old-school touch that made... More

My friend and I chose the Dolphin Inn because it was one of the cheapest options on the island with the highest rating. We were not disappointed. The staff was very friendly. The pool was nice and surprisingly large. They offer floats, sand toys, umbrellas, chairs, and even kayaks free to use. Bikes are available to rent for just $10... More

I love the people here. They are so friendly and nice every time we come. I like the access to the pool also. It is at the quiet end of the island and I really like being able to walk to see a movie!!

Our room was spacious and perfect for a long stay. When we arrived, we felt very welcome by Travis. He thought of everything to make our... More

I read a lot of positive reviews before booking the Dolphin Inn and now, after spending 4 nights there, I would like to join in ☺ It’s located a little outside of the center of Fort Myers Beach so you can either take the car or use a trolley for 75 cents one way. For us it was perfect as... More
