Always a great place to stay, wonderful staff, great location on the beach and the pool is really nice too, but the rooms are in bad need of updating.
We’ve been going for years and will continue to go, that being said. The mattresses are like sleeping in a hammock and if 2 peopl

Dear Frank, Thank you so much for sharing your impressions of your recent stay with us. We sincerely appreciate your loyalty and most of all, your intent to continue returning in the future. I will be sure to pass your compliments of our staff along to them, right away. Your suggestions regarding the need to update our rooms are much appreciated and will absolutely be taken into account as we embark on renovations in the near future. That said, some of the items you described are certainly below our standards and I will look into, and address those right away. If you wouldn't mind letting me know (via my contact information below) what unit you stayed in, it would be very much appreciated. I'm very sorry that some of these items lessened your experience and again, please be assured that they are not our standard and will be addressed. Thank you again for your comments, and most of all for being our guest for so many year. Both are sincerely appreciated. Bill Wellman General Manager bwellman@theinnsofsanibel.com 239-472-3181

We truly enjoyed the Sanibel Inn this Thanksgiving. The amenities included by far made the trip! It was so nice to stroll out to the beach and have a chair & umbrella ready and waiting for you. If all were taken by other patrons, the staff was quick to get you all set up. We enjo

Hi We're travelling Sanibell on 18th October from the UK for a family holiday staying at the Sanibell Inn. I've been reading a lot of adverse reports about the red tide problem on the beaches and in the sea and was wondering if this will have a significant impact on the holiday as the kids like going on the beach and in the sea.
Honestly, my husband and I i got sick. I'm pretty sure it was from swimming in the ocean. Wish I had a different answer for you. Beautiful location, great hotel. Just stay out of the ocean. The pool is wonderful.

Hello I would like to book a room for my family in March 2019 for a night I understand we can arrive after 4.00pm and we ´ll leave our room at 11.00 am Is it possible to use hotel advantage during the journey after 11.00 am (rent bycycle, kayak ,used pool ....) Thanks for your answer Cedric
Yes! The hotel is very accommodating. And we arrived 1.5 hours before check in and our room was ready. We were allowed right in---they don't guarantee an early check in but the room should be ready before 4pm. Enjoy!

Is it much of a walk to your sister property, Song of the Sea? I understand that's where the laundry facilities are. How much is it to do laundry ?
5 minute walk. We had laundry in our condo but when we stayed there a couple of years ago it was similar to laundromat prices, coin operated.
