Accommodated us last minute, clean, friendly staff. Elevated out of service while there, being replaced, but we were told ahead of time and understand things have to be done. Not at all left in disrepair. Love Sanibel Inn!

Overall a nice stay. Loved the extra-free bikes, chairs, umbrellas,etc. our room was nice, good beds but a bit dated. Lovely, clean grounds. Good, affordable food at the 2 restaurants. Our ocean front room offered a great place to relax. I’d stay here again.

It was everything that we needed; it was great that property had its own beach and beach access, pool, and there were bikes and kayaks to use. The staff was very nice and courteous. Also, it worked out well that we could order groceries from a local store, and the groceries were waiting for us in our room. The communication was also done well regarding the COVID policies. We have stayed at this property a few times, and it is always nice and peaceful.

The Front Desk staff (face to face) were pleasant. The bartenders and guys working the hut where you get towels, bikes etc were excellent. Really were welcoming and enjoyable to be around. The pool area was clean and pool kept clean. Very nice area around the pool and the access to the beach was excellent.

There was no knives except bread and butter knaves. Could not cut breakfast bread and other items with them. Had to go out and buy one to cut with. Did not replace coffee in the room.
