I had stayed at here in 2009 and we enjoyed our stay then. The only bad thing I could say of my stay back then that there were always baby ants in the kichen but I could deal with that. This was not the case this time.
We stayed there for 2 days in August 2012. It was supposed to be 3. I paid for 3 but could not stay any longer. When we walked in there were dead milipedes on the carpet floor in the bedroom and the loft that we had to clean up. I was surprised we did not have any little ants in the kitchen. On the 1st night i noticed baby cockroaches crawling in the sink and on the counter. I saw them again on the 2nd night . They seemed to only come out at night. I wondered where the big ones were. Where there are babies there is usually some adult ones too. There was a space on the floor where the door closes and ants were always coming from under the door. We decided to just head out after staying 2 nights and head for our next location at Orlando. When we arrived at our hotel in Orlando I pulled out my toiletries case to get ready to go out and as I looked thru the clear plastic of the bag there was a roach crawling around in it. I had carried it with me from Anchor Inn. I will never go there again. They need some exterminating. The property also has a very bad problem with the baby ants. They were all over the property and crawling up and down the outside of the doors and the floors at the pool and parking area. We found several baby ants had come to be living in my minivan from being parked in the lot. So by the time I got home I washed every single thing I travelled with (even the clean clothes afraid to bring roaches into my house) Every single bag got checked along with every single item brought in. The van needed major vacuuming and cleaning to get the ants out. I realize this part of Florida has ants but it can be controlled with some exterminating. The only thing not negative I can say is the bedding and sheets seemed to be very clean and the kids loved the pool. I love Sanibel Island and will go back but never to Anchor Inn again.
