We have been coming here on and off for 10 years . Great place to stay if your looking for a home away from home! My husband even proposed to me here and we will never go anywhere else as long as the sandpiper is still open. The beach is only a block away and shops/restaurants are close by. Managers... More

Stayed at the Sandpiper 3/26 -3/29 of 2016. The Sandpiper is a nice Mom 'n Pop alternative to the pricey Condo style rentals abundant on Sanibel. Comfortable, clean with a full kitchen. We ate breakfasts in the Sandpiper and Late lunch/early dinners at area restaurants. Walk to a nice beach 5 minutes away. Free bikes are a plus. Saves $$... More

We had a great stay at the Sandpiper Inn. Our room was clean with enough space for our family. We liked having a kitchen to prepare breakfast and lunch. There were adequate dishes and cooking supplies as well as beach chairs and an umbrella. We had an upstairs room so had a nice breeze in the evening. The Sandpiper Inn... More

My family and I have traveled to Sanibel Island every couple of years for several years and we have always stayed at the Sandpiper Inn. It is very clean and comfortable. We love having the kitchen and access to laundry...especially more recently with the addition of small children to our group! The inn is very conveniently located for beach, restaurants... More

The building is divided into 4 units , 2 on the second level accessed by stairway and 2 on the ground level. We had unit 4 which was on the top back away from the road. On arrival they simply have your room key put in an envelope and tacked on the wall outside of the office. We never saw... More

We chose the Sandpiper after reading the reviews & agree they were correct. One block to beach, free bikes,chairs,umbrellas & beach towels. We stayed in unit 4 since it had a covered porch, & we liked sitting out watching the ospreys & woodpeckers in the trees. The room had 2 double beds & a separate kitchen/living room. Went to a...

I stayed in the Sandpiper 4 with my 3 teenage children. There was enough space for us to be comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and the grill was perfect. The inn provides bikes for you to explore the island. Restaurants, shops, and Pinocchio's Ice Cream were all a short ride away. Although not directly on the beach, the walk... More

A charming island cottage that was filled with all of life's modern day necessities (i.e., 2 TVs w/ full cable, wifi, a full kitchen w/needed cooking & eating supplies, extra towels & soaps, a free laundry room, etc.). Bikes were readily available at all hours for guests who wanted a more leisurely way to tour the island. In the backyard,... More

My husband, daughter (7) and I stayed here. We needed a getaway. This place was amazing. The room was perfect and it was a short walk to the beach. Ron was very accommodating. There was movies that you could borrow free of charge after a long day at the beach we enjoyed Dolphin Tale. The full kitchen was very useful.... More

My husband and I spent a week on Sanibel and loved this quaint little Inn. It was perfect for the two of us and the service was awesome. The Manager Ron is great. Both he and the Inn exceeded our expectations. The price was great. Much less than a one of the pricey (and small) hotel rooms. We had free... More
