Very good 8.2 From 298 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
We love this place! If you want a comfortable, friendly place to stay, then stay here. The people who work here are so nice. Your room includes a breakfast basket, bikes, paddle boards, chairs and umbrellas and beach towels. Can't beat that! The beds are so comfortable and love the full size fridge. This is our 5th year here and will be back.

Very good 8.0
It was a nice quiet place that had a lot of positives. Could use some updating but it was clean and had a great location.
CARLA, us4 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
We were extremely disappointed in this hotel. It was fairly expensive, especially since it was off season. Yet, the shower was broken, the bed dipped toward the middle, and had no insulation against the newly arrived red tide event. The hotel included breakfast but it was fair lame. A couple of boxes of cereal, cereal bars, etc. reminiscent of what is offered at a discount motel—but at premium prices. Never again!

Good 6.0
It was ok
Check in was ok. Had to ask the following morning for our breakfast basket. Had asked to paddle board and was told they would bring the life jacket and paddle down to the beach, waiting over an hour in the heat and finally walked back Tom themoffice again to tell them to forget it. So, our experience could of been better.

Great, mellow getaway!
What a lovely experience. Grounds are immaculate and well cared for, rooms also. But best of all is thoughtfulness of the staff, especially James and Leslie (who kindly rescued all our belongings from the pool when the storm blew up while we were at the beach). We did not expect a basket of breakfast items and snacks, including fresh squeezed orange juice, delivered every night for the next day. Wow. Also it was great to have free on-site bikes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and life jackets; and appreciated the complimentary travel size bottle of sunscreen/no-see-um repellent at check in. (Worked great and you’ll need no-see-um protection everywhere on Sanibel so we bought another). Great, stress-free getaway. And maybe it was dumb luck but we found better shells right on beach at the hotel then we did anywhere else. Happily recommend.
