Hotel suggestions...want to visit Sanibel so don't want to be too far away and don't want to pay outrageous prices.
Look at the Seaside, it's right on the beach. All the rooms are like condos with a kitchen and a couple of bedrooms with a deck over looking the beach.
Check out the Neptune resort might be in your price range
Christmas week is going to be expensive. The Best Western on Fort Myers Beach is pretty nice. It's less than 400 a night between Christmas and New Years (less than 300 the week before Christmas) for a room with 2 beds, on the beach, with a Gulf view, breakfast included, and there's a kitchenette so you can eat in if you want. Best Western has a senior citizen's discount. It's north of the bridge coming onto the island where Fort Myers Beach is located, and there's less traffic from that direction than to/from any of the hotels south of the bridge.
