Thanksgiving trip to Sanibel

Posted Nov 28, 2014
Pros: I like the private beach access.
Cons: The hotel (rooms, buildings, grounds) could use some updating.
Location: Sanibel Island has the most amazing shells.
I really like that the West Wind Inn has access to a private beach. The hotel is comfortable- not fancy or extravagant. My experience was pleasant, and I would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Awesome experience!

Posted Nov 25, 2014
Pros: It was clean and directly on the gulf and a bar at the pool.
Cons: Allowing customers to smoke on their balcony and for the bar by the pool to stay open longer than 8 o clock at night.
Location: There are a few shops, light house and grocery down the road. We drove around, but were very content with staying at the hotel. Bar, beach, pool, bbq
We were very pleased with staying at West Wind. Clean, quit, great food and awesome staff. This will for sure be our get a way a few times a year.

Beautiful location

Posted Nov 24, 2014
Pros: The beach, the pool, the grounds and the staff were great.
Cons: Our room was very moist from an overnight rain that the air conditioning didn't handle well.
This is a beautiful location on the private section of Sanibel beach. The hotel staff and pool bar staff were excellent. Food and drinks were excellent.

Loved Sanibel Island

Posted Nov 11, 2014
This was our first time in this section of Flordia and we loved the location. Our hotel was a nice location on the island and our view of the gulf and pool fantastic. The staff was nice and welcoming and the food in the restaurant wonderful. The room could use some updating and did have a musky smell at times....but we could just open the door on to the balcony and problem solved.....we will be back!!

Very nice older motel right on the gulf side beach. Appears to have been recently updated. Granite bathrooms with glass shower stalls, tile floors, flat screen tv's. Has a nice pool with a bar. It was a good choice and we would go back to it if we ever revisit Sanibel in the future.

Good place to stay

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: Neat, quiet, parking is good, beds are good, balconies are screened in - all in all a very comfortable place.
Cons: It's an older facility. I think for older folks the addition of an elevator or two would greatly enhance the appeal of the second floor.
Location: Close to everything Sanibel. Great location.
Very nice hotel with outstanding beach front property. If spending your days on a picturesque beach is your desired plan, this is the place.

Traumhafter Strand, aber leider veraltetes Hotel

Posted Nov 3, 2014
Das Hotel besteht aus einer sehr schönen Anlage mit Pool und liegt direkt am wunderschönen Privatstrand. Dieses Umfeld ist kaum zu übertreffen. Die Zimmer sind allerdings sehr veraltet und müssten renoviert werden. Die Bäder sind erneuert, die Möbel sowie die Matratzen müssten aber dringend nachgeholt werden.

Casual vacation vibe

Posted Nov 1, 2014
Pros: The pool bar offered lunch boards with a variety of choices from salads to burgers. Again, good food right at the pool or bar. Perfect.
Cons: The screened in "patio" could be spruced up a bit. We had the ocean front first floor sitting area but it seemed dismal. No big deal.
Location: Don't miss the Ding Darling Wildlife refuge. You will see many birds and critters along a nice hiking trail.
We found the hotel to be average in room décor but clean and efficient, really all you need! The best part is location, location. 'Can't go wrong with a hotel and pool right on the beach! That is what we look for. Beautiful sunsets followed up with a terrific dinner at the restaurant right on the property. We would go again.

Everything we expected!

Posted Oct 28, 2014
We had a waterfront view and close to the beach. The price was right and the room was nicely decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and look forward to another trip to the West Wind Inn.
