We enjoyed a nice few days at the Sanibel Inn with a lovely view of the ocean and a quick walk to the pool and all their beach amenities. It was great to have free, easy access to pool toys, boogie boards and bikes. The boardwalk to the beach was very nice and well-maintained, and the grounds were pretty and had plenty of seating. Our kids loved playing the lawn games, swimming in the pool, and collecting shells on the beach.The staff was friendly and responsive. When the water was calm on our last day, a small pod of dolphins joined us to hunt and play in the very shallow water close to where folks were swimming and paddle-boarding. A very cool experience! The double Queen room was a bit tight for our family of 4 since we spent more time there due to inclement weather, but I would definitely recommend the Sanibel Inn to others.

The property overall was beautiful and the staff was great. The rooms were clean and we were pleasantly surprised with how much we used and appreciated the in unit washer and dryer. It’s well worth the money for the grounds and most importantly the staff. Honestly, the wifi was awful, but that’s the only real annoyance. Just be aware. Overall, I’d give them a 4.8 and we will be back.
