My husband and I never stay anywhere else other than the Sanibel Inn. We stayed there once again this weekend and took advantage of their wonderful Summer Escape package where you get the 4th night free. Our room, as always was great! The new couch and porch chairs were really comfortable. The hotel staff was amazing and the Sea Star Cafe was a great little place to eat when you didn't feel like leaving the grounds and driving somewhere else. The young gentleman that was at the beachside bar Sunday afternoon went above and beyond in making us feel welcome and took great care of us, our drinks and our food order. The same goes for the people in the restaurant and the gentlemen setting up chairs and umbrellas. Everyone had that great "How Can I Help You?" attitude. We had that great relaxing feel throughout our entire stay where the staff just pampered us and made us feel like we were special guests.
My only "complaint" is the parking. They do not have spaces clearly marked out in front of the buildings and this allows for inconsiderate people to take more than their fair share of the parking spots. I can't tell you how many times we went out and came back to find no place to park in front of our building because people would take up a lot of room parking and would even park at odd angles just so they could ensure their huge parking spots. They even took to parking in front of the walkway and the entry to the stairs so you even had a hard time trying to walk to the building. 95% of the time we were there, we had to park way on down and away from our building.
If management ever reads this I would suggest using the concrete parking markers so people will have a better idea of where to park because people are people and if you let them have free reign and give them a foot, they will take a yard. If anyone else reads this...please be considerate to others and park decently as you are not the only ones having to park in your area.
