I enjoyed my stay at The Sanibel Inn. It was not fancy, just fine for a reprieve from my ordinary life. I was surprised by the extra daily fee of $12 for beach umbrella, chairs, bikes, kayaks, newspaper. I really only wanted the umbrella and
chairs. They need more of those! They run out too quickly.

Review of Sanibel Inn
Sep 23, 2012
Wonderful beach getaway
Staff was accommodating and helpful, partcularly the manager of the inn's restaurant. Resort fee covered all beach needs so you didn't have to keep shelling out money for beach towels, beach chairs and/or beach umbrellas. Quiet end of island with
its own beachront. Really enjoyed my stay.
