Have stayed here 3 times now and thoroughly recommend it. The owners are friendly, unobtrusive and very hospitable. The accomodation is comfy and clean. I think the pool at the front is one of the biggest and the pool area is lovely, lots of seating. There is a docking bay at the back where you can fish or have a...

Stayed here first time last fall and am planning a return trip. Called today and the lady even remembered me. Decent rates and across from the beach. Lots of no see-ums on the beach but not bad near the pool which is located in the front of the hotel. It is a small quiant place. Not a big chain with...

We live in FL but took an overnight trip to Fort Myers Beach. After reviewing Trip Advisors various hotels we chose the Dolphin Inn because of their great feedback and price. We took a family of 5 and rented the 1 bedroom. I am so glad we did! It is exactly as the reviews here state. What you'd expect for...

Just got back from an impromptu overnight to the Dolphin Inn. We live on the mainland and I'm a native, so I've stayed in my share of reasonably priced beach inns, and I must say we found this a cut above and a great value. We stayed in the smallest room, 13-A, which is the only one with a screened...

Super cute little spot along fort Myers beach sooo worth the price. The day room was cozy and impossibly clean. The beach was right across, perfect for an afternoon walk since sunsets are very romantic on the beach.There is a lot of effort on making your stay a good one. Travis made us feel like family which I appreciated after...

What a pleasant stay even with Tropical Depression Debbie soaking the area, we were greeted by Travis upon arrival and felt as though we had already met before we even arrived. We stayed in Unit #3 Poolside and what a excellent pool it is, clean, big and just the right temperature, tables, umbrellas and chairs galore. This Inn isn't waterfront...

We booked a room here based on Trip Advisor reviews and were so glad we did! We'd spent a crazy week traveling all around Florida, staying in places as diverse as the Omni in Jacksonville to a Motel 8 in Titusville but this kitschy, quirky motel in Ft. Myers Beach was hands-down our favorite. The room was spotless, the owners...

We arrived here after a very long drive up from the Florida Keys. First impressions after we parked up, the pool looks great, this looks nice. The guy at the front desk knew who we were before we even said who we were!! Very friendly. We walked around to the back of the property to our room 3A, and the...

My friend and I stayed here one night though I wish we could have stayed longer! The room, amenities, and service, exceeded all expectations. The room was very clean. The wifi was great, our flatscreen TV had cable (can't remember whether there was a DVD player), but I admit this place might not be the best for everyone. It is...
