Great location on Sanibel. The gorgeous beach is just steps from the rooms, and it's great having use of bikes, paddle boards, and kayaks. Nice to have the little kitchenette. The staff is friendly, helpful and accommodating. Will definitely return!

We had a lovely stay at the Seaside Inn. The cottage was gulf front with an amazing view. It was exceptionally peaceful and quiet overall. The cottage was a bit small for three/four people, but the beach access and view made up for that. Most days we received a basket with delicious orange juice and pastry, milk, cereal, yogurt and...

We've really enjoyed staying at Seaside the past five years with it's great beach and location. We had expected the same experience but were disappointed. On our arrival, we noticed the ice machine was out of order and when we questioned the desk clerk, she told us she had no idea when it would be fixed. When we got to...

We go to Sanibel every year and usually rent a condo for a full week. We had to change our plans this year and needed a nightly-rate hotel. Seaside Inn was a fantastic find! I loved the cottages. The pool was nice. Having free use of bikes- complete with baby seats or a trailer for the kiddos- was wonderful. And...

Immaculate accommodations, huge smiles among the attentive, friendly staff - especially TessAnn, at the daytime front desk. Amenities abound - like bikes, beach chairs and umbrellas - at this unpretentious, quiet and comfortable beachside retreat. Next year's trip to the Seaside Inn can't come soon enough!
