Booking accommodations during a holiday weekend can be stressful - especially last minute. We booked the Song of the Sea after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were pleasantly surprised! With only 30 rooms, this was a smaller inn than I'm accustomed to. The room we stayed in had a view of the pool with two queen beds, a balcony, kitchenette, and bathroom (albeit small). We were greeted with a bottle of red wine which wasn't very good in the end, but the idea of it was nice. We only took advantage of the continental breakfast just once. They had waffles, cereal, fresh fruit, coffee, yogurt, and assorted juices. It was satisfying, but we wanted to explore other restaurants on the island. They provided just enough bath towels and beach towels. We were told that there were limited chairs and umbrellas due to Sanibel Island regulations. We got to the beach early each day and never had an issue. However there was one day when there weren't enough lounge chairs for the guests. The staff is super friendly. The beach is only a 2 minute walk. The shelling is good, but not fantastic. For the price and location, I would certainly stay here again.
