Just the type of motel/hotel we were looking for. Please look online to view the place before you choose it has you destination. It is located on the main strip for travel on/off the island. We had a single bungalow with a very small bathroom. It a swimming pool in the center of the courtyard and cable TV, plus WiFi. They have bike rentals ($5 a day, 1st come/1st served), I suggest you use a bike to travel around the island, paid parking at the beaches. Limited parking around the island. Nature is all around you, so pay attention to the wildlife signs. Bring a good camera, walking/riding shoes. They will supply you a beach towel, be sure to bring it back. Front desk is open daily from 8am-9pm, if you have a problem overnight, you may have to wait till morning. It has a small sitting area at your door and one in the back of the bungalow that overlooks a small pond. Price was not bad at all, so book early because the island fills up quick with tourist.

Once again we had a great stay here. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. Location is convenient too and our third stay here did not disappoint. The kitchen area was easy to use with enough equipment for our needs.

It was just a lucky pick as the Anchor Inn had a cancellation! Can't beat the rates...the setting...proximity to the beach access...restaurants...and not to mention the couple who manages the Inn. My vehicle broke down and they were very accommodating and did what they could to help easy my stress. The grounds are clean, well maintained, and not dated. I will be back possibly to use one of there A-frames!

So pleasantly surprised with this super clean,quaint one room efficiency. The staff (Pat) and I think Mikayla, were so friendly and nice and accommodating to myself and my family. Also gained private beach access and beach/pool amenities to their sister hotel (Tropical Winds Motel and Cottages), where their staff was just as friendly!
I know I kept bothering Pat with questions and advice but she patiently gave me answers to anything that I needed! Beach chairs, umbrella and towels were given to us and there was also accommodations for cleaning seashells which are in abundance on Sanibel Island. There was a small pool, but it was just perfect to hang out and get cooled off, especially after a hot day on the beach.
There were also bike rentals available at the cottage for the over 12 miles of biking trails on the island.
The beaches are beautiful with shells galore. Please take advantage of this scenic paradise and stay at either of these fine establishments!
I would definitely recommend either!
