nice hotel for staying when spending a beach holiday in Sanibel island...the hotel is well kept. A small refurbish can be necessary,,a paint on the door and a cleaning job for the curtains as a undusting one for the aircon. Beside of this small criticism , it s a good and comfortable hotel near the beach. The breakfast is nice... More

We had a wonderful visit. We had few minor inconveniences, but nothing that would keep us from returning.The breakfast basket has a great selection, and there was more than enough for everyone. The inn is in a quiet area, which was fantastic. My children had a great time and the weather was beautiful.

Very satisfied with my stay in this hotel. Nice property with very nice rooms and service. Loved that they have full kitchens, barbeque area, and markets nearby, so if you don't feel like going out everyday that is definitely a plus. A really nice touch was the breakfast basquet every morning, it included bagels, croissants, pastries, yogurt, milk, fruit, cereal... More

The website offers out-of-date photos, particularly of the interior accommodations. Despite installing granite countertops in the kitchen area and bath, the floors and carpet were filthy! Drapes had no hems or pulls, and although the sheets appeared clean, there was sand on the fitted sheet.
