We loved the Seaside Inn. It was nice, quiet and just a few steps from the beach. We will certainly be back!

This was our third time at the Seaside Inn and yet again we had a lovely stay. As we on previous trips we had a Gulf front room we gives great views across the beach and out towards Fort Myers Beach and the coast heading towards the Keys. If you want a large sophisticated resort then the Seaside Inn is...

We only stayed for one night with our 9 year old son. We chose this hotel because we had family vacationing at the property next door. We were given room 112 -- the 2nd floor of the small building nearest the office. We shared a balcony with just one other room (we each had a small table and 2 chairs.)...

Just returned from a short stay at the Seaside Inn and only have great things to say about the place. Staff were very friendly and helpful when we checked in, giving us lots of info about local restaurants etc. We stayed in a cottage, which was spacious and had obviously been recently renovated with modern fittings and a lovely bathroom...

This was our first trip to Sanibel, but it won't be the last! I couldn't have asked for much more for a winter getaway. The Seaside Inn was a stone's throw from the beach. The room was comfortable and we enjoyed having the kitchenette since we had breakfast in the room every morning (a continental breakfast basket was delivered every...

Having read the reviews on this place I was a little concerned. But there was so little left with it being easter, I thought 'oh hey, it's only 3 nights' This place does so not deserve the ropey reviews it gets. Ok, so it's not as modernised as some places;a good thing as feels authentic. Ok, so the rooms are...

A recent transplant from SE Florida to Keystone Colorado, a much needed trip to Sanibel was needed for myself and my family. We had a wonderful 3 bedroom suite that was spacious and the decor tranquil. From beach chairs to the delightful breakfast basket, you didn't miss a beat with making our trip relaxing and with no headaches of the...

Absolutely wonderful, I cannot express how much we are pleased with the Seaside Inn. We have stayed here two different years and loved it both times (and we intend to stay again). I’m a very hard person to please but these people are getting it right.

Our family now numbering nineteen has spend spring breaks at Seaside Inn for seventeen years. Our expectation is to keep oncoming back for generations to come. Accommodations, grounds, staff and location are superb! The pool and beach contribute to what can only describe as idyllic and ideal for the kind of quiet times we enjoy.

We enjoyed our stay at the Seaside Inn! The location is right on the beach. This is a small inn and is very clean and the grounds are very tropical and well maintained! We could walk out just a few steps to the beach. They provided umbrellas and chairs which we enjoyed each day! Sanibel is very clean and so...
