We stayed for the week in a second floor gulf front suite in the Daisy Dune building, we had the corner suite which offered a fantastic view and cross breeze on the screened patio. The bed was in a separate bedroom and was very good quality. We appreciated the sink and fridge that accommodated our breakfast and lunch foods. We...

My wife and I really enjoyed our three nights here. The view from the gulf view rooms is outstanding. The head groundskeeper needs a bonus because the landscaping was beautiful! We spent a lot of time at the pool restaurant/bar. The food was surprisingly outstanding for a small pool-side bar. Location was perfect and the staff very friendly and accommodating;...

Two night stay was wonderful. Offers many amenities to keep you active from kayaking, paddle boarding, tennis and more. Very nice view from our room of the Gulf of Mexico. Staff was great. Will definitely come here again.

I stayed three nights at the Sanibel Inn during May, 2017. The room and bathroom were clean. The staff was polite. I particularly enjoyed the grounds that seemed like an arboretum. The grounds crew put a lot of effort in creating and maintaining such a place. The beach was close and I was out before sunrise to go shelling. Beside...

You can't beat the location. Loved the screened in lanai and the view. Beach guys were great. My only complaint is our tile floor was filthy. It felt gritty and my feet were black. Kept flip flops on inside. Bed could use new mattress as it was sagging and touch ups needed but overall we enjoyed out stay and would...

Sanibel Inn is like your favorite uncle - friendly, reliable and always coming up with special little treats or amenities. It isn't swank and I'm sure there are several places on Sanibel with lots more glitz but overall the resort experience was very satisfactory. We were here visiting family so we didn't really spend that much time at Sanibel Inn....

This is our second time staying here. We booked a 2 queen bedroom and when we got there they upgraded us for free to a two bedroom suite because they were not full. Great clean rooms, great beach, great service. Let us checkout an hour later then normal so we could stay on the beach a little longer. Highly recommend.

We spent a few days here with our young kids and really enjoyed the place! Very nice beach hotel, great location, everything well maintained, and very nice service. And our kids absolutely loved!

We had a wonderful stay at the Sanibel Inn. Our room was spacious and clean and the bed was comfy. The beach attendants were kind and helpful, setting up our chairs and beach umbrella each day. We especially loved our bartender at the beach cafe, Trish. She was just awesome, so fun and friendly and she makes a mean cocktail!...

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
