We booked our 2 day visit on line and drove to it. Very impressed with the location and the layout. When we checked in we were on the bottom floor of the motel section. The room was very clean ans very cosy. Above us were some morons that didnt know how to walk like humans and

We stayed in a motel room for 2 nights. The room was very nice and spacious with a small but functional kitchenette. The problem was the walls. We could hear everything the guests were saying in the next room. It was very difficult to get a good nights sleep. The price of the

Chose Shalimar and motel unit 1 as it was right on the beach. Unfortunately the room was EXTREMELY NOISY. Upstairs room with wooden creaky floor kept us up all night. Also, the room had an adjoining door which allowed even more noise including snoring and arguing couple.

I call the Shallimar my home away from home. The first time i went there i fell in love with the Old Florida feeling and the laid back no rush days. The management is the best and after awhile you feel like they are family. I have been going over 15 years. Rooms are not cleaned

Loved it. Yes, a tad outdated but very clean and steps from a beautiful beach on famous pristine Sanibel Island. Owner very kindly personally showed us both a cottage and motel room so we could decide which accommodation suited us best. Beach chairs (not lounge chairs) are

Hi, we are actually on our way home from Shalimar and Sanibel, they just cleaned the beach a day or two ago, but dead marine life is still washing up. I wouldn’t recommend you cancel, (they don’t give deposits back I believe). The actual cottages were awesome and we really loved our time there, but you should be prepared for some dead stuff and some sinus problems because of the red tide. It wasn’t horrible but we did feel discomfort after being on the beach for a couple hours. Wishing you the best of luck!

"Don't rent in motel. Cottages only."
"Rooms on the lower floor suffer from noise of other guests walking overhead."
"All motel rooms have view of the beach and gulf. Second floor rooms are quieter due to first floor having noise from the rooms above."
"There are only two motel rooms ON the beach. #11 is one but I can't remember the first floor room number."
"nice location overall. quiet area."
