The staff took time to get to know everyone. I felt like they went out of their way to do so. We loved it there and plan on going back soon. By far one of my best vacation spots ever.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Just a short few steps out to the waters edge! Wear your water shoes if you plan to go in the water, because there are so many shells on the bottom! Wonderful experience. Loved it.

We have visited Sanibel several times and everywhere we stayed was nice but Island Inn was the best. We will definitely stay there next trip. If you like a beautiful Gulf front location, friendly staff, peaceful, quiet and restful place - this is it.
