As part of our three week trip to Florida we booked four nights in the Sanibel Inn. Mistake! We should have stayed much longer. We had a beautiful room with a pool view and the ocean visible beyond. Room was large and well furnished and there was an excellent bathroom. If I wanted to be picky I didn't like the coffee maker as it could only make one cup at a time. OK that is too picky.
Hotel had direct beach access and a beautiful pool; there were free beach towels and beach loungers. Tennis equipment was available and every day we made use of the free cycles. Staff were consistently helpful throughout our stay. Our room had free wifi but we had no lap top with us and there was no other internet access in the hotel. We were given free access at a sister hotel about 1/2 mile away but on site access would have been nicer.
The hotel restaurant was modeled on a jazz club and they did indeed have a impressive roster of performers; it was however an incongruous setting for breakfast.
Really a very relaxing spot for lounging at the pool or on the beach or for exploring Sanibel Island.
