Beautiful area and beach.

Posted Jun 30, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Get rid of Gloria.
Location: Excellent food, swimming and golf.
The reason I rated the staff low was one women a lady named Gloria I believe. She was rude and adamant about late checkout and very unpleasant. The gentlemen, was awesome and went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable. His disposition was very pleasant as well.

Great place to stay. We would stay again

Posted Jun 18, 2015
great place to stay ,very clean, walk out to cabana bar, hammocks, beach. Even laundry room if needed. Only complaint:car was parked in handicapped space with no placard nor hotel pass, I alerted staff and was told there was nothing they could do. Gave them make, model, tag #, they said they weren't guest and might be at cabana bar. I'm disabled and needed that spot in front of our room but had to park down a good ways and walk. The sign posted says there a fine to park there w/o placard. We felt they should've announced car to move or call police for ticket. Other than that small incident our stay was very good. We would stay again. We read other remarks ppl say staff unfriendly, we didn't think so. Some were strictly biz but nice. Wish we were still there.

Outdated and Overpriced

Posted Jun 13, 2015
I stayed at this hotel for one night. When walking into our room the room looked clean but felt dirty. We had a tile floor and wore our sandals on it any time we walked around the room. The bed was awful and the pillows were so worn out. There was a dehumidifier in the room that had to run the whole time we were there. That plus the ac unit made t impossible to sleep. The water in the shower left or hair and skin smelling like treated water. The hotel is beachfront which is sadly the only like we liked about this place. The pool was okay, and small. When we were packing the next morning the maid opened the door without knocking. I explained to her we weren't checking out until 10 (it was like 9am, and checkout was 11) she didn't speak English and finally realized she had the wrong room. A knock would have been nice. When checking out I did let the front desk know, and the woman was rude and just continued to exit speech. We had really high hopes coming from a Holiday Inn in the keys, which was AWESOME, but this hotel is outdated and overpriced. Will not stay here again or recommend to anyone.

Nice hotel close to the beach

We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn in Sanibel. I would recommend it and I would stay there again if I were to visit the area again. The staff was very cooperative and responsive to requests.

Holiday Inn at Sanibel is wonderful!

Posted Jun 8, 2015
Pros: The staff is exceptional! The grounds are just gorgeous and so meticulously attended to!
Cons: The mattresses and pillows desperately need replaced! Tiki drinks are very overpriced.
Location: Location was perfect! Sanibel is so peaceful. Over Easy Cafe for brkfst! Sanibel Grille for dinner. Our favs! Baileys General Store for everything!
Upon arrival at the Holiday Inn Sanibel we were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful the entrance is. This does not look like a Holiday Inn! The hotel is just beautiful with its charming stone drive to its lovely coral color! The staff are outstanding. Billie @ the front desk was so nice, Carra at the Tiki was adorable and so full of helpful tips about Sanibel. Norm and Richard are great grounds keepers...the place is so very well kept! Our room was pretty and so very very clean. The beds are much in need of new mattresses and pillows. The restaurant is so pretty. The food is a bit pricey for dinner but it is delicious. The Tiki drinks are very expensive...we ended up making our own. Sorry Holiday Inn but 10 dollars is way too much for a small plastic cup filled with little beverage. :(. The beach is gorgeous! So many shells...The grounds staff are quick to retrieve you an umbrella and chairs. We truly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to come back! This hotel is a gem!
