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...

This place was great! Right on a side canal into the water with a great view! Travis the owner was more than kind and helpful! We were able to keep our boat on their dock for the weekend and the room was super spacious with a kitchen! We will def. be back!

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. The hotel is small and very well maintained, it is family owned, where customers return year after year. The hotel has a very large and nice pool and...

I wanted my adult son to experience the kind of Florida vacation that I enjoyed as a young man, so I selected Dolphin Inn. No disappointments here!. Not fancy, but comfortable room with kitchenette, decent beds, Beach is a half-block away. The inn provides lawn chairs and ice chests you can take to the beach. Their pool is very nice....

I've struggled with how to rate Dolphin Inn, so I decided to give it average and let you decide. I read many reviews and looked at photos, so I felt like I had a realistic expectation. No frills, good location, laundry facilities, wifi, kitchen etc. We had bookend stays here for a trip to Key West on the ferry and...

First of all, if you're looking for a high class place, with chocolates on the pillows and turn down service....keep looking! If you're looking for a great place, with dynamite location and the friendliest people ever, you have found it! It was like staying with family. Travis is the owner and he is just as down to earth and personable...

If you like motels that have beautiful , well maintained grounds, a big beautiful pool and the friendliest hosts you'll ever encounter then the Dolphin Inn is your spot.

We had to evacuate due to Hurricane Matthew and we found a gem on Ft Myers Beach. Not the big new fancy hotels, but this was a taste of old Florida with spacious and clean rooms. Private beach access, they have a nice pool. Kayaks beach chairs and umbrellas are there for your use as well
