Good location for the price

We wanted to check out Sanibel Island and chose the Holiday Inn because it was on the beach, and was medium priced for the area. The hotel was fine, the rooms were a little old, but clean. The beach was not what we expected. Lots of seaweed and messy. The pool area is nice, with a little Tiki bar. The hotel is close to lots of restaurants and you can rent bikes there to take advantage of all the trails on the island.

Holiday Inn Sanibel Island

Location is great only 1/2 mile off the bridge and located on the beach 2 miles above the southern tip of the island. Easy access to all of the island stores. Breakfasts a tthe hotel are good but the dinner service is mediocre. However dthere is an abundance of fine restaurants for all tastes and at resonable prices close by.

Great hotel on a laid back island

2nd visit to Sanibel Island/MLB Spring Training... Ate great seafood, walked a fantastic beach with millions of sea shells. The Holiday Inn is more like a hotel instead of a resort, decided to give it a try after staying at a resort last time and didn't use alot of the amenties. Definitely met expectation- room was clean, people were very nice, even had breakfast there one morning...that tasted good too :) Don't have any complaints except that the air conditioner/heater ran a little loud.
