Nice Facility Conveniently Located

Posted Mar 16, 2017
Pros: convenience and privacy.
Cons: better orientation on check in. They did not mention the free laundry, but we were told later.
Location: It is not at the beach, but they have an arrangement with another hotel to park and use their beach access. Easy to get to everything.
The rooms were very clean and had all the amenities. It was really pleasant with a little pond, cornhole games and lots of shade. It is on the main road, and it's easy to get to any place on the island. It has free laundry facilities and a heated outdoor pool. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to use Anchor Inn on our next visit to Sanibel.

Sweet kitschy old school place!

Posted Mar 5, 2017
This is not update or modern - however plantings well done and room packed with kitchen and living area - very convenient location near a number of upscale restaurants. Bedding could use some updating as well as towel sizes (smallish)!

Old Style Hotel

Posted Mar 2, 2017
This maybe an older style hotel, but well maintained, up-dated bath facilities, and excellent staff. Make it a place to complete with all those chain facilities you will fine in Fort Myers and Fort Myers Beach.

Room had an overpowering smell of cleaning products...not sure what, but it was so strong the room had to be aired out before we could actually stay in it for any length of time. After an hour or so it was better. Otherwise, it was clean, bright and quiet. A little dated, but it's the beach. It's to be expected. Staff was friendly and helpful. Pool was nice.

Thank you for leaving your review. I m sorry to hear that the cleaning chemicals that the staff used was too strong for you. We apologize for that. We are glad to see you had a pleasant stay outside of that minor issue.

Centrally located

Posted Feb 10, 2017
Pros: Cozy accommodations with a warm family feeling
Cons: Some of the furnishings were well worn
Location: Great location
Clean oasis after a long drive. Anchor Inn is located conveniently on the island. Staff was very welcoming. This inn provides a wonderful safe environment for travelers and is a unique experience for those who stay in a traditional hotel. Dog friendly too is an added bonus.

Clean, comfortable hotel with "old Florida" feel.

Posted Jan 25, 2017
Cons: Bed and bedding felt overused and smelled just a little old.
Location: Many things! Restaurants, hiking, kayaking, Ding Darling National Refuge, biking.
As stated above, this is a clean, comfortable hotel with the décor and feeling of "old Florida". It is conveniently located to allow walking and biking to restaurants, and the beach is within walking distance. The only thing at all disappointing was that the bed was not very comfortable and the pillows smelled kind of old, but that is a first world problem, isn't it? Would def stay there again.
