We enjoyed our 4-night stay at the Seaside Inn to the point that we wished we could extend our vacation for a few more days. Our 8-year old son and our 15-year old daughter said this was the best vacation ever :-)! We would have stayed longer, by all means, if it wasn't for the new school year right around the corner and all the related preparations. We have definitely found our family vacation hideaway, located on the beach, with a very nice pool steps from the suites and cottages. We were warmly welcomed by Trisianne at the front desk when we checked in and accommodated graciously so that we could start enjoying our vacation right away! Everyone on staff was so helpful and very polite and accommodating, which made our stay even more pleasant. The breakfast basket, full of goodies (milk, juice bottles, muffins, bagels, cream cheese, granola bars, yogurt, coffee pouches, etc.) was delivered to our suite every late afternoon was a very unique touch. The beach chairs and umbrellas, the bikes, kayaks, and paddle boards, the laundry facility and barbecue grills on site certainly give you the feeling of owning a beachfront vacation home, even though you could tell that the Inn was full of vacationers. The full kitchen in the suite made it very comfortable and economical for the whole family to enjoy meals at the privacy of home, even though the island was full of great places to eat. Of course our children enjoyed their afternoon "naps" watching their favorite shows on the 42" LCD Flat Panel TVs with HBO and the Disney Channel. As a family, we are past the huge resorts, the crowds, and the cramped beaches! We found everything we wished for and wanted for our family vacation at the Seaside Inn. We are thankful to have found this oasis and we will visit again and again...we live in Tampa, but have traveled the world and vacationed in Europe while we lived there (Albania, Montenegro, Turkey, Italy, Austria, Germany, etc.) and of course have vacationed in Florida (Naples, Sarasota, Miami, Venice, Siesta Key, Clearwater, St. Pete Beach). While we have enjoyed every single one of these places, Villa Laban in Montenegro and now Seaside Inn at Sanibel will always be the spots where we have found everything we wished for in a vacation! Thank You

wife and I stayed a night here, and was very pleased with everything. room was clean, and the inn had everything you needed such as pool, umbrellas and chairs for the beach, kayaks, paddleboards. even have bikes you can ride around on island, we rode ours to the restaurant for breakfast about a half mile up the rode, the lighthouse café which was really good too. plus you get a nice view of the beach and the gulf make sure on your second level. overall very happy with this place and would stay again, only thing that was an issue was the shower, it looked like it needed a new shower head, the pressure was low, but wasn't a big deal, we really liked the place and recommend to anyone.

Sanibel Island is a wonderful Florida destination and Seaside Inn is a great place to stay while on the island. The beach is just a short stroll away and our cottage had a view of the Gulf. The staff was very helpful. Our cottage had one bedroom and a pull out couch that was very comfortable.
The complimentary breakfast included yogurt, bagels, juice, muffins and granola bars. Just right. There was a full kitchen in the room.
But the best is the beach. There were plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. Sanibel is known for its shelling and it didn't disappoint. We collected lots!
Seaside Inn was great for our 2 nights on the island. Would highly recommend it!
The cottage was very clean and well laid out.

We had one night to stay in Sanibel, but we enjoyed our time at the Seaside Inn. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the room very clean. Our favorite memory of our stay was the free bikes at the hotel. Sanibel is perfect for biking with path connecting the island. We rode into town for breakfast, then out to the lighthouse and back. A lovely experience!
