Found this unit last minute for Spring Break. Our only regret is we couldn't get units longer ! The staff was very accommodating. The highlight of this place is obviously the location. Beach has great shelling. They provide chairs and beach towels. Many different types...More

Helpful staff! Everything clean and well-cared for. We enjoyed the view from our second-floor balcony of Pineapple Lodge. Also appreciated having a fridge, microwave and coffee pot. The Inn is located on a quieter part of Sanibel, which was perfect.

Don't expect super fancy, but if you want a well-maintained, clean and comfortable spot right on/near the beach, this is your place. We had a partial view room with comfy beds and a more than adequate kitchen. The front desk staff was very friendly and...More
