This place was amazing! They saved our trip. Steven at the front desk was so accommodating! He hand picked fresh breakfast items for us, carried in our groceries, and anything else we needed. Toys, beach gear,and nice free shells available onsite.The room was spacious and clean. The beach was great! Private access with chairs and umbrellas every morning. Right on a sandbar- perfect for our young son to scoop up shells in shallow water. Location right next to the lighthouse. Awesome shells!

We were pleasantly surprised by our stay at the seaside inn. The property is very cute and clean and well maintained. All of the extra amenities were fantastic...the paddle boards and kayaks and bikes! The pool area and proximity to the beach are both awesome. The room was clean and cute and I loved the big porch facing the pool. Only issues are that the room was a bit small, the air conditioning unit is very loud, and we could clearly hear the neighboring room's occupants. The front desk staff was amazing and so helpful and friendly. The breakfast baskets are also a very nice touch! Would definitely return here for a short stay.

Dear Jayhwakmamma,

I'm so glad you enjoyed your first visit to Seaside Inn! It was our pleasure to have you with us for a few days.

Your comments regarding some of the issues in your room, including the noise intrusion from your neighbors is concerning and we will address this. If you could, please let me know what room you stayed in so that we can also address the AC unit; this is certainly not our standard!

I will be sure to pass along your very nice compliments to our staff. They will appreciated your letting them know how much their service meant to you.

We are glad to know that you will be back - please let us know what else we can do to make your next stay even more memorable.

Thank you!

Three couples vacationed together. We all loved the hotel and beach. The staff was suburb. Breakfast baskets were a nice touch. We will return. Only issue we had was kids running in the room above us after 10 PM each night. We loved the wildlife: bunnies, birds, and sea turtle tracks on the beach. Thanks for a nice vacation.

Room Tip: Gulf front suite was good for us. Mom had to do the 5 or so steps up, it was doable, but not easily.

Dear Laura,

I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and appreciate your taking the time to share such a wonderful review.

You certainly enjoyed all the best that Sanibel Island has to offer and I'm glad you appreciated the service of our staff and our lovely breakfast baskets. Please accept my apologies for the noise intrusion above your room. Please don't ever hesitate to let us know if that happens again at such a late hour - some of our guests do not realize that their footsteps can be impactful to others and we are happy to ask them quite down a bit.

We look forward to seeing you again. It was our pleasure to have you as our guests and I'm glad you and your friends enjoyed a nice vacation together.

Sincerely,

My family and I stayed here over the past weekend. The staff was so polite and helpful. The room was cozy with a small kitchen area, large bathroom and extremely comfortable beds. We were on the end nearest the street but we could still see the ocean from the chairs on the wide porch. There were families staying in other rooms but we never heard any noise. We especially liked the breakfast basket, which was a square basket containing milk, juice, fruit, yogurt, cereals, granola bars and other breakfast treats. The basket was in our fridge when we arrived and we received a new one every afternoon. It was fun discovering what we got each day. The pool area was great and we took advantage of the beach chairs and umbrellas. You can play shuffleboard or take out a kayak or paddle board. There were even beach toys and frisbees. The staff was always friendly and gave good suggestions for things to do. I would recommend this for anyone, really...families or couples. I hope we get to return again next year.

Seaside Inn is small, not fancy, has no food, but it is a wonderfully relaxing place. Great location on the beach. Very nice heated pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room were nice, and very clean. Food was available at a sister hotel down the street, The Sanibel Inn, which is bigger. I would definitely stay here again.
