We had reservations for 2 nights at the Dolphin Inn made based on Trip Advisor reviews. It did not disappoint. A very friendly, clean facility with a large swimming pool and a great location [ due to the road construction traffic it was difficult to get to the other end of the beach]. We were supposed to leave after 2...

My boyfriend and I just spent a wonderful couple nights here and would highly recommend it as a good value for the amazing location and good quality. The room we had is perfect for couples, as the room isn't large, but is decently kept and has a small kitchen space. The staff is lovely and went out of their way...

We stayed here for the 1st time in January 2017. We have stayed at other places in Ft Myers beach, but this place is so laid back, lovely views to the inter coastal . Lovely sized pool and only a stone's throw to the beach. Our room was basic but very comfortable, and very nice. Everything you needed was there....

The standard apartment unit had ample space and was well equipped. I emailed Travis,the owner, after my 3 night stay to make him aware of a few items that needed his attention. In particular, the mattress in the master bedroom was very soft and uncomfortable and I did not rest well. Travis responded to my email very promptly and asked...

We went to Fort Myers to relax and check out a few spots for retail locations. We like the looks of the Dolphin Inn on line and they had some great prices. We stayed five days, and it was under $700.00. Booking was easy and Travis was very helpful. We checked in around 4:00PM, and the staff was very pleasant...

We really liked this inn right on a quiet canal. The beach was a walk across the street. Everyone was very freindly and helpful. Pool was nice and loved watching birds in the area overlooking the water.

Good value for the $. Location is great. Right on the water - small inlet from the bay. Right across the street from a quiet section of beach. Nice heated pool. Rooms are clean and well maintained but extremely small - but sufficient for our purposes (we weren't hanging in our room). Owners were nice. Free beach chairs and coolers...

My wife and I have stayed here several times. In recent years we have not had this capability since the hotel had full on the dates we wanted to book a room.
