Best vacation yet. My husband and I went here for an early Anniversary gift and it was more than we could've asked for. It wasn't like the resort hotels where you don't want to leave and explore which is exactly what we were hoping for.

Nice hotel and very helpful personnel!! James the hotel manager helpt us well to local restaurants. Rooms are clean and tidy. Breakfast is at the rooms instead of in the restaurant. You get a basket with breakfast. All good. Sanibel island

Great location! Beautiful beach. Attractive landscaping. Lovely pool area. Free parking. They provide lounge chairs on the beach - and if you ask - they will set up umbrellas.

This was our first time staying on Sanibel. Great beach/island location! Front desk and housekeeping staff were extremely nice. The reason for our average review was: 1) did not like the fact that the maintenance man brought the beach chairs in before sunset (i.e. the reason we picked the Sunset Inn was the location); and 2) and most importantly was...

This was our first trip to Sanibel Island, and I believe it was a success! The rooms were Lord and comfortable. The pool was an awesome addition to the beautiful beach just steps away from your door. We were in a "garden view" room which meant we overlooked the shuffleboard area but could see the pool. Everything about our stay...
