Voted Best Inn on the Island, the Island Inn, with its combination of quaint Old Florida cottages and modern lodges, sits on 10 beautiful Gulf front acres, offering 550 feet of beach with some of the best shelling the area has to offer. Every room and cottage, most with screened porches, overlooks our beautiful 10-acre shaded beachfront yard, just steps from the gentle warm waters of the Gulf. This priceless amenity ensures a peaceful, private and relaxing stay, as well as offering a wonderful space for the kids to play while you sit back with a book on your porch. The Inns award-winning Traditions on the Beach -Restaurant, Bar and Lounge serves breakfast and dinner in one of the islands only Gulf front dining rooms.

quick getaway

Our stay was amazing! The staff was so friendly and helpful and full of information about the hotel and its history! The room was so beautiful and spacious and most importantly clean!! It's quiet and very private. We loved that the beach was just steps from our room, which had a screened porch on it so we could enjoy the evening without being bothered with those pesky Florida no see-ums!! Can't wait for our next visit!!

Get ready to sleep with BED BUGS

Stayed two night, my girl friend and I got bitten by bed bugs so hard. Had more than 60 bumps on my body before I leave the hotel.

Sanibel Trip

My wife and I wanted a treat for our 30th anniversary and going to the beach is one of our favorite activities. So we booked 2 nights at the Island Inn off the internet. The gentleman at the front desk was extremely nice, check in was easy and the room was very nice. The private beach was absolutely beautiful and the water was fantastic. The Web site was very accurate, it's a lovely place and we will go back.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Sanibel is sleepy, so don't for nightlife. It's just a great romantic retreat.

Beach front

This hotel is right on the beach which makes it very convenient. Continental breakfast left a little to be desired but besides that everything was great!

great spot for a short getaway...

We only stayed 1 night in this hotel since I was entertaining a family member on a brief visit. It was just the right spot for a short getaway! The room with 2 queen beds with ocean view & an enclosed patio on the ground floor was perfect. It was very clean and spacious with a small kitchenette.

Great place to just relax

I loved just about everything about this hotel. The location was perfect the room was that perfect get a way feeling. The staff however were not the friendliest. We went there right when we got off the plane and got there 2 hours before check in time. They absolutely could do nothing for us until check in. I have been on many trips and anytime I came across this situation the hotel would work with us and get us in. Also when we wanted to rent the amenities they were annoyed with us when we wanted to pay cash instead of charging it to our room. Besides the staff I would could back.

Winter retreat

I loved the location, right on the beach. There were bike rentals at the hotel ( not free). The dinner menu was fantastic! It was also fairly quiet. My husband complained that both the room coffee and the complimentary breakfast coffee were bad. They could definitely improve their complimentary breakfast, for the price paid it wasn't much choice or very good.

Wonderful shops with really cute, affordable things that other shops did not have. About 45 of them in one area. Can't remember the name of them.
