We were waiting to spend a quite time with the family and be away of routine for a couple of day. We looked for deals in sanibel and fortunately we found this place. Service, food and condition were excellent. Place was the same I expected when I saw photos. I highly recommend seaside inn if you want to feel really good spending not too much money.

Hotel's Favorite
This is the only place in Sanibel I will stay. I have been coming to Sanibel since I was a little girl in the early 70's when the hotel was named The Gallery. I have so many great memories here that I will never stay anywhere else. The front desk gentleman who was working the week we were there was such a kind and helpful man. I can't say enough about this place. I will be back next year and every year after. Thank you for another great memory. Diane Warden

We spent 3 nights at the Seaside Inn. The room was very clean, and everyone was wearing masks. It was so convenient to walk to the beach where we found lots of shells. The bikes were free and we used them each morning and in the afternoon. It was great, safe getaway.
