We were checking into a regular room when Travis the owner stopped by to introduce himself and welcome us. When he saw we had 3 people and the room had only 1 bed (my daughter usually sleeps on a cot when we travel) he asked if we wanted to move to one of the apartments that had extra beds so... More

Very relaxing on the lounge chairs outside our room with several visiting egrets looking for handouts. You also can use the kayaks on the dock.Our room was very clean and had a... More

View behind hotel is of bay and quite... More

We love this place. Jennifer and Travis make this place perfect. Every day is just another day in paradise. To come back to the Dolphin Inn is like coming home. The Dolphin in has the old Florida charme with actuell interieur. It is nothing for partypeople. We come back every year several times. We will be there in october.

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!!!

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
