Everyone at the Inn was extremely nice and helpful. The front desk staff held our bags since we arrived before check in, and we were able to hit the tiki bar and use the bikes to run to the store before our room was ready. The guys at the tiki bar were great, special shout out to Tommy and Brian....

We booked a two day stay whilst staying in Orlando, the atmosphere on the island and certainly within the Inn was exceptionally relaxing but professional. It had an almost Carribeanesq feel to it without the fear of turning a corner into a 'no - go' area, we would definitely consider a longer stay in the future, the only negative would...

We absolutely loved this hotel and we will be back. We had a screened in deck that overlooked the pool but you could also see the ocean from our window. The beds were very comfy, and the room was very clean. Also, it was quiet. We enjoyed taking the short walk to the beach every day, looking for seashells and...

You will never go wrong in staying at the Sanibel Inn! We have been coming here for 15 years and the staff alone makes you feel it was worthwhile - from checking in, to the restaurant, to the pool area, to the bar, to the beach, even housekeeping - everyone employed at the Inn are awesome! You will never regret...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Immerse yourself in nature at Sanibel Inn. The Inn offers a wide variety of accommodations and amenities surrounded by beautiful gardens and tropical palms. Come to Sanibel Inn to discover why Sanibel Island was just ranked #1 Favorite Worldwide Destination by Arthur Frommer and #5 Top US Beach by Trip Advisor. Just like the tropical flowers in the gardens, Sanibel Inn reflects the colors of the island. From the brightly painted exteriors to the warm soothing interiors of the guestrooms and suites, Sanibel Inn provides a relaxing and comfortable beach hideaway in one of the newly renovated guestrooms and one bedroom suites. Sanibel Inn also offers two-bedroom condominiums that are perfect for families or larger group of friends who wish to stay together. The Sea Star Café is located at the Inn and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with traditional café fare with an island twist. Sanibel Island is all about nature. Discover nature up close by bike via the 22 miles of paved bike and walking trails. Visit J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to see a variety of migratory birds and explore an undeveloped mangrove ecosystem. Take a walk on the beaches and find rare shells such as the Junonia or 200 other species of shells. Take to the waters of the Gulf by kayak for a different point of view. Feel like a friendly tennis match, Sanibel Inn has a newly refurbished court on the grounds of the Inn or visit The Dunes Golf & Tennis Club. Sanibel Inn guests are also invited to golf at The Dunes where the greens wind through 75 acres of natural lake view fairways and Audubon Cooperative Society wetlands. After a morning of exploration, unwind by the pool and bathe in the warm Florida sun. Just steps away, the Beach Bar offers cool libations and poolside snacks. Sanibel Inn offers a gateway to the various activities on Sanibel and the perfect spot for a relaxing day in the sun. ... more   less
