          Must have picked the best time to stay in Sanibel. Got a great price for a suite. Kitchenette made the stay even better. More space than normal for this type of accomodation. Would stay here again in the future.

          I need to know who the owners are. Mother, Louise Harrah Pack was my mother and she told me that Poppy's (Walter Harrah) sister owned this motel. I imagine the children, my cousins, of my great aunt run the motel now. Will be in Tampa with my daughter during the month of March and would love to visit the motel and perhaps stay a night or two.
