Where to stay in Sanibel Island

Sanibel Hotel Guide

Far from being a spring break destination, Sanibel Island is a quiet, serene, and scenic beach spot close to Fort Myers, Florida. The water's warm year-round, but you won't find bikini contests or wild parties. However, you can still have a "shell" of a time! The main reason visitors stay in Sanibel Island hotels is for the chance to collect shells right on the beach. Got binoculars? You can also spot birds at the J. N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge or feed the pelicans near the Sanibel Lighthouse. The barrier island is also a great place for you to try your hand at deep-sea fishing, cast off right from the shore, or get a workout snorkeling in Tarpon Bay. Refuel after a day of fun with some fresh seafood from a local eatery because there are no chain restaurants on Sanibel Island whatsoever.

All that shell searching might leave you tired, so having somewhere to unwind is key. Thankfully, Expedia has all the hotels in Sanibel Island you could ask for. From upscale resorts to inns located just steps from the water of Tarpon Bay, we have you covered for a great night of sleep. Whether you're looking for a quick and affordable place to crash for the night or you're doing some serious honeymoon planning, our cheap deals let you experience the beauty of Sanibel Island without a hefty price tag. After all, discounts on hotels just means that you will have a little more money to splurge on fun during your stay. Why not dive into a SCUBA lesson, or order a drink while watching the sunset at an upscale restaurant? Plan an unforgettable getaway thanks to budget-friendly options from Expedia.
