Holiday Inn Sanibel was a great place to stay for my first time on the Island. Comfortable, clean, good location & good staff. I did not have enough time to enjoy the pool or tiki bar but they looked great. Spent a short amount of time on the
beach chairs at sunset one evening which was so comfortable. I only wish I will be able to go back again for a longer stay (more than two nights).
Note that this is not like your typical 'high-rise' Holiday Inn. It's two-floors and almost feels like you are at a Caribbean hideaway rather than at a corporate 'conglomerate' hotel.
We'll be back - hopefully the same time next year (for a longer stay) but don't let anyone else know that this (early November) is the best time to visit.

Early November seems to be a great time to visit here. Weather still beautiful and not a lot of people visiting. Ssshhhhhhh.
