Unwind by the pool or enjoy a day at the beach looking for shells or soaking up the sun. Seaside Inn offers personalized service along with 32 newly renovated guestrooms, suites and cottages with interiors inspired by the sun bleached sand beyond the dune.

The cottages offer a separate living area with a new sleeper sofa, full kitchen and one bedroom with a king bed. Each cottage has a deck just off the living area to enjoy the Florida sun with family while overlooking the pool. Each day a complimentary continental breakfast basket is delivered to the rooms for the next morning’s enjoyment. While on Sanibel enjoy the wide variety of outdoor adventures. Spend time exploring the 23 miles of paved nature trails that wind through the wetlands with one of the bikes provided by Seaside Inn. Visit the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge to view a wide variety of migratory birds and explore an unspoiled mangrove ecosystem.

The location is fab, right by the beach. Hotel provides loungers, parasols and towels for the beach. Plus kayaks and bikes which you can borrow. If you’ve checked out of the hotel on the morning and still want to use the facilities, there is a changing room you can use. Room

The beds were very comfortable. We are both in our late 50's and had no problems. Love Seaside Inn!

Are pets allowed?
Hi I think they allow pets in some ground floor apartments, but I agree with Dachsiemom, a quick call will confirm. We loved it there!

It is on the beach. The layout goes like this: parking lot, office, pool, lawn with chairs, beach ( there a grassy area before you get to the sand and shells. The rooms are in a “U” shape around the office and pool area. Great resort we will definitely return.

"A 2nd flr, partial gulf view rm is a must, but not the 1st or 2nd rm closest to the registration center. The views there are poor."
"Loved our cottage #105"
"Every room is great."
"Ocean view with porch"
"Would choose an oceanfront room versus a partial view cottage."
