To start the location alone is worth the price of admission. Easy access from Fort Meyers, not to far into the island, but still has a middle of nowhere private resort feel. Easy access to all the good restaurants (shout out to Light House Cafe, awesome breakfast, owner Dan is so nice and personable). The grounds of the hotel were beautiful and well taken care of. Steps from the beach. Gulf view room was lovely. Yes like some of the reviews stated, it is a little dated, it is a beach resort hotel that has been there for some time. If you want something new and modern stay off the island with no beach access and then drive to Sanibel Island to see all the natural beauty. Everything was clean. It was off season so the were no shortage of amenities. We will definitely stay here again. Thank you Sanibel Inn for making my wife's birthday a great one!…
Property was great. nice pool. great beach. Very short walk to beach from Hotel. Hotel staff the best. Kayla at the front desk was so helpful. Lena was super as well. Condos have lots of space. very clean rooms and the whole property is well maintained. Shelling was amazing. Would definitely return.
Hubby and I are spending 2 nights at Sanibel Inn to celebrate our anniversary. While the unit is a bit outdated the view and location were excellent. I also wanted to give a job well done to the housekeeping staff there. I came across a staff member on my way in to my unit and asked for a few extra coffee pod refills. Within 5 minutes she brought me 4 additional coffee pods. However, they were the wrong size which I didn’t realize until after I got back inside. I quickly found another staff member and asked her for the smaller size pods. And again within 5 minutes she made her way back to our unit with the correct size and she was smiling genuinely seemed happy to accommodate my small request. It really is the kind little things that employees do that makes a stay a memorable one!…
The actual outdoor resort was beautiful. Very manicured pathways to the pool and beach. The room was another story! It was dated, had run down furniture and the carpet was stained and dirty! The bathroom was full of tiny ants and wasn’t cleaned properly. Overall, disgusting! I complained to the manager. He was apologetic and upgraded us to a newer building. Still had ants in the bathroom. I do not recommend this inn.
We have stayed here about 6 times now in the last few years and love it. We always stay in a condo unit for extra space and it is worth the upgrade. Everyone from the front desk, to the rec staff that put out chairs to the tiki bar staff (especially Casey) are super wonderful and helpful!! Great amenities here and very clean. Also we really love Dante’s pizza!! We look forward to it every visit. We will always come back here to stay when on Sanibel!!
Went for spring break 2022. Suite was clean and very spacious. Kitchen was very poorly stocked, however. Mom left her wallet at the bar accidentally and upon retrieval noticed cash missing! Resort was great location wise! Loses stars for kitchen and theft. Would go again I’d just bring my own kitchen stuff and keep an eye on the wallet!
Maggie C. was a great tour guide with loads of knowledge and passion to share with us. We liked learning about some of the island history of Sanibel and of course about shells. We’re very glad we did it. Plus the necklaces were a nice treasure to keep. Thank you!
Maggie and Bobby we’re friendly,informative,and fun! We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them learning about the local flora and fauna. Thank you so much And we will definitely be coming back. Sincerely Greg and Jenni
Maggie was a great guide and showed us so many cool things on the beach! From the vegetation to the shells and critters - her knowledge and bubbly personality were enjoyable! Free for guests of the Inns of Sanibel and definitely worth doing one morning!
We had a wonderful 3-night stay in August 2022. Two-bedroom condo was very comfortable. And the beach, of course, was lovely. Only downside was the heat - definitely needed an afternoon siesta each day. Highlight was the nature walk with naturalist Maggie. She brings a real enthusiasm for the local flora and fauna. She inspired our son to look more closely at the many types of shells on the beach. And later in the day we all enjoyed getting fossilized shark teeth necklaces.
